Our first visit to the New Forest, we loved it and will return.

This review is for Ashurst - New Forest

Our first visit to the New Forest, we loved it and will return.Arrive on sunday after 12 midday once the weekenders have left. ponies wonder freely around the site,and as we are the intruders they rule the roost, they caused us no problems and we enjoyed their presence.(Follow the rules and you will have no problems). Being able to cycle straight into the forest was a bonus for our Grandchildren,they were able to cycle to local attractions. The forest wild life center is well worth a visit with something for all ages. There are many walks and cycle paths to enjoy enabling you to travel to the nearby villages and sample good food and the occasional welcome cool beverage without travelling on busy roads. Our only criticism would be that some campers cannot resist feeding the ponies!

This review is for Ashurst - New Forest

Very warm welcome on arrival. Friendly, helpful people running the site. Everything was beautifully clean and tidy. During the week the site was very quiet and peaceful and was utterly silent at night. On Friday night it naturally got a bit busier, but it was still very quiet after 10.00 or 10.30pm. We had a great time and would certainly stay there again when we return to the New Forest.

This review is for Ashurst - New Forest

welcomed with a smile and a lengthy list of things we were not allowed to do, mostly reasonable. Very hostile and suspicious to young people. Although not listed on the lengthy list of must nots, any kind of ball game in the broad open spaces was stamped on. There was a big area of public grass land with one staff caravan on the corner, the moment a ball appeared within 100m of this, the official was out to say no ball games were allowed anywhere on site or, as it transpired, off the site but within sight of the staff. beautiful area, great walks, good toilets and showers, lovely trees. don't take any teenaged boys -they will be watched like hawks!

This review is for Ashurst - New Forest

Just came back from 3 days camping (tent) at Ashurst with my boyfriend. The camp manager gave us a warm and friendly greeting and the check-in was quick and smooth. You can choose where to pitch your tent, only rule is 6m away from other campers. Despite the bank holiday & half term we didn't have any problems in finding a suitably flat & quiet spot on the grass, right opposite the forest. We went for walks into the forest out into open fields and saw wild horses roaming about. The scenery it's breathtakingly beautiful. A few horses visited the camp mornings & evenings. We found the facilities always clean despite the many families with children. Showers were hot. Staff always friendly and cheerful. We found the camp was quiet at night time and also during the day. There is a lovely big pub with a sunny beer garden 5 minutes walk through a field near the main entrance. Ashurst Village is only 5min walk and Lyndhurst village is 5 minutes drive away and there you have Budgens, pubs & restaurants, a Camping Shop and the best Ice Cream shop I've come across in a while. The camp is about 15 minutes drive to Beaulieu & its Motor Museum, which was worth a visit. The scenic drive to Beaulieu (open fields & heath grass) is truly majestic. Great experience. Would recommend.
