Just returned from spending a lovely week camping right inside the forest at above in Hampshire. It is a really lovely setting, with deer, rabbits, voles, all sorts of lovely birds, and 4 Tawny Owls, who serenaded us every night at Dusk. Really worth a visit. You must have your own loo, no facilites other than chemical toilet disposal and water facilities.. Electric hook ups are also available, at an extra price. :thumb:

Since before Motorhomefun
Yupp had some lovely holidays there as a caravanner.

Did you see any RVs there.

I never looked when we were staying there to busy tracking down our dogs each trip :RollEyes:

I have stayed there several times and I can recommend this site, which is now managed by the C&CC, who give an 'Old Farts' discount (actually they call it a 'seasoned camper' but it's much the same thing) which I have taken advantage of.
The site is divided into several sections, my favourite is 'Pine tops' which is more open, which is nicer in the Autumn/Winter.:rain:
In reply to Roadrunner, I have seen a few RVs there at times. Most of the site is over a quite narrow bridge over the disused railway line, now a footpath, but if you don't fancy that there is another way round through a gate in the part known as 'Oaken bottom!' :moon:which is down by the RV service point. Only drawback to this site is that the last two times I have been there I have brought back unwanted stowaways (mice) :Angry:. To be fair no one else has had this so perhaps it's just our bad luck, we now have an ultrasonic gadget to repel them (Maplins of course):thumb:

roadrunner, yes there was one ther, RV with slide outs, fairly big, I guess they stay for a while, as it is a all year site, and NO nearlyretired we didn't have any stowaways even though we had a large box of scrumpted apples in the storage area. Verwood has a site on the New Forest as well, which is more open than Setthorns.

Hi roadtraveller,
Couldn't agree with you more. We've been going there for more years than I can remember in tent/caravan/and now motorhome. Usually only for a few days as we're only 40 minutes away. Fantastic location.

Cheers
Vick
