Overview

A true back to nature camping trip

Pitch amongst the pines and oaks of the beautiful forest setting at the Setthorns campsite. There is an abundance of wildlife in the New Forest and the relaxed atmosphere means most will have little fear coming close to the campsite; campers at Setthorns can expect to see a number of New Forest ponies and maybe even some deer. There is an array of activities to get involved in while staying at this campsite including cycling and walking through the New Forest or visits the nearby seaside resorts of Barton on Sea and Bournemouth. Nearby attractions include the New Forest Reptile Centre, Hurst Castle and lighthouse and the Red House Museum and Gardens which is a must see for archaeology or geology enthusiasts. Close to the villages of Sway and Brockenhurst, there are plenty of restaurants, craft shops and pubs to keep everyone entertained.
Please note: It is essential that you bring your own chemical toilet. There are no shower or toilet facilities on this site.

A relaxing wonderful site. So good we stayed an extra two nights.

This review is for Setthorns - New Forest

A relaxing wonderful site. So good we stayed an extra two nights. Set right in the New Forest it was literally a step to start walking in the forest. Peaceful and quiet with lots of wildlife coming to check us out including a stag one day who came within 10m of the van. If you can go for a select pitch. Set up at the top of the camp site these pitches are secluded and well separated with electric hook up and lots of chemical waste disposal points, water points and rubbish collection points within easy walking distance. These pitches come with a picnic table and have lots of room. Tucked right in amongst the trees they provide good visual separation from your neighbours. Lots of lovely walks abound from the site and it is an easy 40 minutes walk into Sway. There are no toilets or showers on the site but that is one of the attractions. Very dog friendly too. Thoroughly recommended We will be back!

Set in the forest, great spaced out pitches, water supply, waste and rubbish bins all close. Bring your bicycle, great easy cycling along the old railway. Totally tranquil, fabulous scenery, animals galore, ponies were just fabulous to look at. Nothing here, just a great place to hook up and relax. Sort walk/cycle into Sway, great butchers, fab pub, good local shop. Will be back to visit for a third time

Absolutely fantastic.

This review is for Setthorns - New Forest

Absolutely fantastic. A wonderful family break, bring your bikes, your walking boots and get ready for some lungs full of fresh woodland air. The premium pitches are absolutely fine, but the Select Pitches are worth paying that little bit extra for as they are bigger and more secluded. These are at 'High Tops'. Don't worry if you can't get a 'select pitch' it isn't the end of the world and the other premium pitches are beautifully set. It won't ruin your time away. Lovely walk to Sway through the Forrest and a well earned pint when we got there. Then lovely walk back. Site very dog friendly. Highcliffe was lovely, park on the cliff top and walk along the beach. Brilliant for dogs out of season. Lepe Country Park worth a visit to with the kids and really friendly cafe there too, they do a lovely hot chocolate and sausage roll. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did and we will probably see you there soon.

This is a top site,a site once visited one you would want to keep to yourself.

This review is for Setthorns - New Forest

This is a top site,a site once visited one you would want to keep to yourself.Excellent check in from the helpful site managers. As there are no toilet facilities even this keeps the site quieter,There are walks directly from the site,with wildlife to match.Pitches are in separate areas,with different facilities and sizes.Opposite the site is open heathland for an evening stroll.One downside to this brilliant site, is the on site pot holes especially near the select pitches,hopefully site access roads will improve when bridge repairs have been completed.Would I return definitely (but to an area without potholes)
