Ocknell campsite, New Forest, Hampshire
Ocknell campsite is perfect for campers of all abilities. Situated on a quiet expanse of heathland with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, this site offers direct access from your tent 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.
At just over four miles long, Fritham Walk, one of the most popular walks within the New Forest, is a popular highlight. Looking north over Islands Thorns and Amberwood Enclosures as the route heads back towards the car park, film fans might recognise the landscape as 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. After a busy day sightseeing, you can then return to your tent to experience all the wonders of the forest at night.
Please note that due to hard ground, rock pegs are essential at Ocknell.
