I stayed here for a single night on the way to Cornwall. The campsite is set in a very nice location with horses and cows roaming the site. Very friendly welcome from the staff and freedom to pitch where you like. Only loss of one star is that there weren't any showers. Otherwise a lovely place to stay.

We came here for a one night stay but we were tempted to do more. The land is covered with trees or open, your choice where you want to pitch and there are designated areas for chemical toilet users. We chose to pitch just under a tree and saw some deer run across frequently! Two cows and a horse also...

We are relatively local (Southampton) and know the forest well but we decided to try out our new campervan. We booked in advance on their website and booked our pitch which cost £16. On arrival, we were able to park up pretty much were we liked. The staff on the reception were very helpful and friendly. The site itself has...

Situated on a quiet expanse of heathland with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, this site offers direct access from your tent to beautiful heathland and forest walks, as well as the New Forest cycle route. Facilities: Rally field Tents Touring caravans Motorhomes Trailer tents Jumbo tent pitches Grassy pitches Hardstanding pitch Seasonal pitches Toilets Washbasins Electric razor sockets Some disabled facilities Chemical toilet disposal Drinking water taps Dishwashing facilities Ice pack freezing facility Pets welcome Just a short drive away is the tiny, but beautiful, village of Fritham with its thatched cottages, gorgeous lake, ducks and ponies wondering freely down the street. At just over four miles long, Fritham Walk, one of the most popular walks within the New Forest, is a popular highlight. Looking north over Islands Thorns and Amberwood Enclosures as the route heads back towards the car park, film fans might recognise the landscape as Sherwood Forest from Kevin Costner's Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. At Bramshaw there is a well-stocked local shop, while a stunning short cycle ride takes you to Deer Viewing at Bolderwood and into the heart of the New Forest. A little further afield lies the cathedral city of Salisbury and the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge. After a busy day sightseeing, you can then return to your tent to experience all the wonders of the forest at night. Please note that due to hard ground, rock pegs are essential at Ocknell. Pitch types at Ocknell There are 280 standard pitches at Ocknell, of which 150 are hardstanding Longbeech campsite consists of beautiful open clearings overlooked by ancient beechwood which are a haven for local birdlife, including nuthatches, siskins, blue tits and coal tits.
