“whole package”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

As a child I was brought to Bashley in the late 60s and early 70s. those holidays were full of memories so this year I thought I would treat the family to Bashley instead of Woolacombe bay (Twitchen house). on arrival the site staff were very good and quick at placing us with a pitch. The touring site is very clean and tidy, toilets are clean but dated. pool areas and attendants very good. The part which let our holiday down was the entertainment and entertainment area, for those of you who have seen pheonix nights then you can picture it. The facility is dated and although the entertainment staff do their best they cannot compare with other site we have been to. The bingo confused me as we seemed to be playing two or three games at once. Kids prizes were badges and certificates and the staff just lacked energy. For us we payed almost £300 more for 9 nights than we would have a Woolacombe for half the value. yes woolacombe is longer to drive but for the value then it's worth the drive. to cap it all our asked my daughter which caravan site she preferred out of all those we visited and Bashley didn't enter into the mix which is a shame as all my fondest childhood memories are of this site.

We have just returned from a week in our touring van , lovely clean site a very quiet at night, a little disappointed with the evening entertainment the children enjoyed the bingo .
On the touring sites the wardens are on hand and very friendly and helpful .
We had a problem with our car and have to leave our caravan on site until we were able to collect the next day we were not charged for this and a big thank you to the site manager for allowing us to do this it meant a lot .

Room Tip: View map of touring field to get a nice pitch

We recently stayed at this park, which we have done many times in the past. We were expecting brilliant entertainment as this is what we had experienced in the past. We have enjoyed the visiting acts but really loved the entertainment teams shows & individual cabarets. Unfortunately this was not the case this stay. NO TEAM SHOWS!& well the team cabarets weren't exactly brilliant.Such a shame Bashley.

We've stayed here two years in a row as its so good. Plus there is so much we have yet to see and do you just can't do it all! The site is a credit to its staff, who work hard clearly. So friendly and secure. No rowdy louts at night so it is really family friendly.
We absolutely loved all the facilities although the pool closes far too early especially given how hot and pleasant the evenings were. Indoor pool and steam / sauna are top class.
Didn't use the gym as on holiday!
Food was OK but bit greasy (we went after evening busy hour!)
Arcade was great fun and our 6 year old loved collecting tickets for the prizes.
Accommodation was excellent too.

On site shop has gone downhill since last year, with heavily inflated prices and less variety other than staples. With New Milton 5 mins away it risks losing business, as convenience needs equal level of choice and value.

Overall 5 star holiday. Seriously looking to get a van on site...

A fabulous family park but this year 'family' entertainment doesn't seem to include the teenagers. Activities provided during the day for up to age 12 & evening entertainment for younger children too. Where are the party dances the teens have always done & some suitable disco later in the evening too please.
Teenagers are part of the family...please cater for them too. 14/15 year olds are bored!!!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay. Myself and my daughter stayed here weds to the saturday. My brother took his caravan down for us as he is a bit of a novice, the warden was on hand to give him a help into the pitch. They cycle round regulary and are very friendly. We stayed in a lovely pitch right near the toilet block which was great. Lovely big private pitches. Facilities are good and kept very clean. Toilets around Bashley are kept clean, and the staff seemed friendly. We used the outdoor pools while we were there and the new inside one is fab. The food is ok but reasonable. Whole site felt safe. Lovely hanging baskets.
The entertainment in the evening just suited my 8year old she loved the disco and games that were played and she met up with her friends she had made at the pool. We stayed and played bingo each night which was lovely to also have a kids one too. We cant comment on the later entertainment as we went back to our caravan after the bingo.
The little shop sells many things and is very convenient.
Lovely outside play area for the kids.
The site did get busy on the friday and the restaurant was busy but we didn't have to wait long for food., But i would advise if you want a table in the forest room at weekends you need to be queuing up at the door just before 6pm when it opens.
Would definatly return here. We packed up the caravan to leave at 10 but asked the warden at 930am if we could go off and get some breakfast in the restaurant and he said there was noone going onto our pitch so that was fine.
Throughly recommended this site.

Just got back from another fantastic 2 weeks at Bashley, this being our 5th year and we love it just as much.
We stay on the touring site and have to say it is kept beautiful, the whole area is clean and tidy.
The pitch’s are the biggest we have ever stayed on this is why we keep returning, all are separated with hedges,
( I have to say the hanging baskets look amazing.)
Toilet and shower facilities are also cleaned to a high standard.
We used the outdoor pool every day, the lifeguards do a good job keeping it spotlessly clean. Can’t comment on the indoor pool as the weather was so hot we stayed outside.
If you have children there’s a good size park, crazy golf, indoor soft play area and a massive sports field so take your football.
Hoburne Bashley is a great base if you want to sight see around the area Christchurch shops and harbour, Mudeford, Burley, Brockenhurst, and of course the beautiful New Forest walks or cycle rides.
Plenty of evening entertainment for the kids, bingo as well for the grown up’s which is followed by the cabaret which we thoroughly enjoyed every night. We have to give credit to the entertainment team who we found super friendly, Kevin, Rachel, Christian and Stephanie your personality’s shone the whole time and we loved each of your cabaret nights. Kevin you’re such a funny bloke you made us laugh so much. We also enjoyed the visiting acts especially Scotty Miller.
There’s also a nice bar area to sit in if you want somewhere a bit quieter.
We found all staff polite and friendly and have not got one thing negative to say.
Well done Bashley

Imagine a fun-filled caravan park inside the boundaries of the New Forest National Park... waking each morning to the sounds of nature, knowing everything you could possibly need is right on your doorstep. Welcome to Hoburne Bashley – with its acres of wide open space, it’s the perfect holiday park for touring caravans and family holidays in the New Forest.
