Aldridge Hill campsite, New Forest, Hampshire
Whether you are a seasoned or novice camper, pitching your tent at Aldridge Hill is perfect for a ‘get away from it all’ break, providing the opportunity to live in the midst nature and experience everything the New Forest has to offer including its famous free roaming ponies, cattle and donkeys.
The campsite is set in a heathland clearing bordered by the bubbling Blackwater Stream and Ober Water, two of the New Forest’s prettiest waterways. From the campsite you can follow the Ober Water Trail, which is a perfect way to explore the forest; the Ober Water Red trail is 1.5 miles long and the Yellow Trail is one mile long. Ober Heath - a red deer sanctuary - and Whitefield Moor, are both within a few minutes’ walk from the campsite.
Spend time watching breath-taking sunsets at the water’s edge, or explore the vibrant forest via official marked cycle paths which pass close to the campsite, all in the unique environment and peaceful tranquillity of the New Forest.
While there is no shop on site, the picturesque village of Brockenhurst is within easy reach at just two miles away and has a mini supermarket, chemist, gas and camping supply shop, as well as several cafés. For local attractions look no further than the Beaulieu Motor Museum, the historic shipbuilding village of Buckler’s Hard, and the Southampton Docks where ocean-going liners can be admired.
If you are looking for a camping experience that really takes you back to nature then this is the site for you.
Please be aware that there are no toilets, showers or electricity at this campsite, therefore your own chemical toilet is essential.
