Longbeech is a stunningly natural campsite. With no toilet or shower facilities, the emphasis is on nothing but nature. Beautiful open clearings, ancient beechwoods, abundant ferns and isolated spots where silence reigns – this campsite is a camper’s dream.
Hugged by grand and ancient trees that stand proudly throughout the site, Longbeech campsite delivers that sought after feeling of complete isolation from the outside world.

With its focus on the outdoors and being at one with nature, your stay in the New Forest will be a relaxed one. And with direct access to the trees and beyond, Longbeech campsite will ease you into this regime.

Campers can choose between open grassy pitches or staying closer to the treelines on more secluded pitches. Either way stunning views across the site await all those who camp here. If you want to see local wildlife, you won't have to look too far as the New Forest’s famous free-roaming ponies and deer are regular visitors to the site.

Longbeech has direct access to beautiful heathland and forest walks, as well as the 
New Forest cycle route. Just a short drive away is the tiny, but beautiful, village of Fritham with its thatched cottages, gorgeous lake and ducks. New Forest ponies wondering freely down the street are a common sight here.

At the nearby village of Bramshaw there is a well-stocked local shop, while a stunning short cycle ride takes you to the Deer Sanctuary at Bolderwood where a herd of fallow deer can often be spied grazing in the meadow. 

Take a look at the gallery above and book your stay at the picturesque Longbeech campsite today.

Ian & Heather review of Longbeech, New Forest
Our first stay at a club site & we were very impressed with everything. The site is spectacular, set amid mature trees with level, horse mown grass areas. It is sheltered, with the choice of shaded pitches or sunny. Ponies & deer are frequent visitors. The site is surrounded by un-restricted walks, either in woods or open heath. A public house serving food is a short walk away through the trees. Mike, the warden is friendly & very helpful without being obtrusive. All 100%. Thanks Mike...

John Lewis-Burrows review of Longbeech, New Forest
Stayed with friends for four days in August in their caravan on Longbeech. I have to say this was my first time there and what a stunning place, beech, oak and holly trees, grass and hard standing, cdp's and taps, a nature lovers dream. Booking in at Ocknell over a mile away made me wonder why Forest Holidays can't negotiate with their partners to have nothing more than a simple office on Longbeech with battery charging facilities (to negate the use of generators) ice block rental, map, milk and bread sales albeit not enough to affect the local trades people also ticketing for visitors and late stay payments. At the time we were there the warden Gerry was doing a fantastic job under impossible circumstances, working up to sixteen hours per day and required to be in two or three places at any time. C&CC! If Longbeech can't be run in a proficient manner then close the site! Drastic perhaps but the administration at the time was silly. In my professional life I visit around 1500 sites annualy in France and Germany, Longbeech could be one of the best, moderate access from the M27, lots of easy walking from the site, war time history of the Stoney Cross airfield in abundance from the very knowledgeable manager Mark at Ocknell. Many of the attractions of the New Forest fall within a ten mile radius of Longbeech including the wonderful Rhinefield Arboretum and Bolderwood deer park. Even a visit to Highcliff beach avoiding crowded roads, with pub lunch (map by Gerry) excellent.
