Longbeech campsite, New Forest, Hampshire

Prices from £11.50 per night (two adults)

Longbeech campsite consists of beautiful open clearings overlooked by ancient beechwood which are a haven for local birdlife, including nuthatches, siskins, blue tits and coal tits. In addition, the campsite is often visited by the New Forest’s famous, free-roaming ponies and deer.

Running through the campsite is a small network of narrow concrete roads, a reminder of the campsite’s wartime history – this site was used as an airfield during the Second World War.

The campsite 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, ducks and ponies wondering freely down the street.

From Fritham runs one of the most popular walks within the New Forest - not least because of the proximity to the famous Royal Oak pub in the village serving great food and a range of ales drawn straight from the barrel. At just over four miles long, Fritham Walk offers a popular highlight. Looking north over Islands Thorns and Amberwood Enclosures as the route heads back towards the car-park, film buffs might recognise the landscape as none other than Sherwood Forest from Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.

At Bramshaw there is a well-stocked local shop, while a stunning short cycle ride takes you to Deer Viewing at Bolderwood and into the heart of the New Forest. A little further afield lies the cathedral city of Salisbury and the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge, and after a busy day sightseeing return to your tent to experience all the wonders of the forest at night.

Please note that this campsite does not have electricity or toilets.
