Camping with a view
Pitch up at Aldridge Hill and find yourself nestled amongst flowing streams, ancient woodland and beautiful open heathland. The vibe here is very much like wild camping – children have an abundance of space to explore while adults can take a breath and enjoy taking some time out of the hustle and bustle of daily life.
When you fancy a night off cooking or need some supplies, take a scenic stroll or cycle into the nearby village of Brockenhurst and discover the local shops, cafes and pubs – you may spot some ponies and donkeys on your way!
This is a limited facility campsite with no showers or toilets, so it’s essential to bring your own chemical toilet.
When visiting the New Forest, please follow the New Forest Code to help us care and look after this unique place for everyone to enjoy. Find out how here.
Any barbecues used on our sites should be specifically designed and used only for the purpose of cooking food (i.e. not firepits). They should be robust, secure and able to be raised off of the forest floor, there should be no damage or marks left on the ground where they have been used. In support of the New Forest Action Plan, we are asking campers not to bring disposable barbecues for their stay. We are also reminding campers that outside of our sites, no barbecues of any kind are now allowed anywhere in the New Forest.
Please do not feed, pet or approach the animals in and around the campsite; they may look friendly but are unpredictable and can bite and kick. Please keep all food sealed and out of reach of the ponies.
