**** Date change from 19-26 April to 17-24 May - pricing & other details below all the same ****
Not a rally or official Fun meet but a great value week long camping offer (7 nights for £85 after discount) in the New Forest 17-24 May 2021 with a Fun early booking 15% discount code & early entry from 10am on the Monday which has been kindly agreed by Appletree Exhibitions http://www.appletree-exhibitions.co.uk/new-forest-show-ground-april.html (y) Great value from just £12.15 per unit per night with no extra charges for the awning, tow car or size of motorhome. Like the popular camping offer this year, this should go ahead & if we are lucky & Government guidelines allow there will also be a much larger motorhome show with some food stalls & a bar.
This first post will be amended with the latest info. as it is confirmed but please post or PM to let us know that you want the discount code to book (please don't share or pass this code on) then let us know so we can add you to the Booked List which will help Appletree to allow a big enough area for us all. Whilst we will be pitched in the same area it will be essential for everyone to adhere fully to whatever Government guidelines are in place at the time especially with regards to social distancing & gathering with friends as well as whatever rules Appletree Exhibitions have in place then. Know it is still possible for us all to have an enjoyable time with friendly distanced chats as that is what worked well before.

Location: New Forest Showground right in the New Forest about 30 mins walk (past many ponies :inlove:) to Brockenhurst with it's shops, tea rooms, pubs, restaurants & Norman church. Maybe jump on the train there for the short hop to Lymington town for the day or Lymington Pier for a scenic ferry ride to Yarmouth on the Isle Of Wight. Lyndhurst is a bit further afield via a cycle track or a woodland walk (take a map for this route as many paths) for the keen walkers. New Park bus stops are on the main road outside the Showground & the Bluestar 6 (normally hourly) runs between Lymington & Southampton with short hops either way to Brockenhurst or Lyndhurst - see website for live up to date info. https://www.bluestarbus.co.uk/
Facilities: Elsan points & drinking water. Portaloo toilets will be open in daytime hours but closed overnight.
Dogs: Well behaved dogs are welcome & at no extra charge but must be kept under control at all times & not worry campers or wildlife. If in doubt please use an enclosure or tether on your pitch.
Price: Fun early booking discount code is 15% so 7 nights from Monday 17th May are £85 instead of £100 for up to 2 people & motorhome with entry to the Show stands (y) That's saving the cost of a year's Fun membership :) Even just for camping it's great value for the New Forest in April at just over £12 per night if staying all week. Many who stayed for 5 nights in 2021 wanted to stay longer as the camping area was pleasant with glorious sunsets as we were blessed with good weather :sun:
The discount code also applies to shorter stays:
6 nights from Tuesday 18 May £74.80 instead of £88
5 nights from Wednesday 19 May £64.60 instead of £76
4 nights from Thursday 20 May £54.40 instead of £64
3 nights from Friday 21 May £44.20 instead of £52
2 nights from Saturday 22 May £34 instead of £40
The above are the pre-booked prices - if you have booked a short stay via the website then you arrive earlier it will be an extra £15 per night on the gate.
Fun camping area: Those arriving on the Monday will be parked up by Appletree staff in the area that they have allocated for Funsters which should be near to water & waste - you do need to let them know on arrival that you want to be in the Fun area. If you need space for your awning or Quest screen house then again please let those parking you up know so they allow enough space between you & the next motorhome. Those intending to run generators or their engines to boost batteries during their stay should advise Appletree staff of this on arrival so they can be pitched to one side of the Fun area so as not to disturb others. If arriving later in the week then places in the Fun area can't be guaranteed but (depending on numbers) should still be possible so again do ask on arrival. Whilst general campers should only arrive from midday on Monday, Funsters are welcome from 10am so we can beat the queues.
Booking: Request the discount code either by posting on this thread or sending us a PM then book direct here http://www.appletree-exhibitions.co.uk/new-forest-show-ground-april.html inputting the code during checkout. Don't forget to let us know so we can add you to the Booked List on this first post which will help Appletree to allow a big enough area for us all. Please don't share or pass on the discount code as this would risk being able to have a discount again like this for all of us for this & other camping offers.
This camping offer has also been extended to members of RVOC (sister club to Fun) but they will be parked up together in their own area to suit the access that they need.
Bike Hire: Trax delivers & collects bikes within the New Forest area with hire £15 per day for adults http://www.bikehirenewforest.co.uk/ or hire a bike from Cyclex based at Brockenhurst train station https://www.cyclex.co.uk/
Food: There will be some food stalls & a bar at the Show. Good & varied supplies (butchers, bakers, fish & chips, supermarket, cafes, tea rooms, restaurants & pubs) are available in both Brockenhurst (closest) & Lyndhurst for those that like to walk, take the bus or are bringing extra transport but if you aren't planning to get out & about then suggest coming with a full fridge & cupboards - long life milk & part baked bread are already on our packing list but sure we will be picking up treats too 🍰

**************************************************************************************************************************
As us all gathering together is not an option & some (if arriving later in the week) may be pitched around but not in the Fun area, maybe make a sign or download, edit & print this version https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/resources/rally-name-badge.66/ or this one https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/resources/smiley-rally-badge.228/ ) with forum &/or first names to display in your motorhome if you don't already have one. For anyone new, to get a Fun sticker (tax disc type for your windscreen) just send a stamped addressed envelope to:
Motorhomefun STICKER
Jasmin Lodge
Crabtree Lane
Sutton on Sea
Lincolnshire
LN12 2RS
As many already know, these really help us all spot each other & have some friendly socially distanced chats :)
