First time at Roundhill and loved it, and had a great time. However we were in a campervan, so did not have the problems others seem to with tents and horses. The site is huge, and has some lovely places to camp. We went on the August bank holiday so it was fully booked. I can imagine it is even nicer if you went out of the school holidays. The Donkeys are very confident and have probably got used to people feeding them? The facilities seems inadequate for the numbers when we were there, huge queues to wash up etc.
Review by: Philip Cooper
Highly recommend
I stopped at Roundhill with my son for a few nights to use it as a base for sightseeing. I can not praise the site and staff enough, they were all friendly and very helpful. The facilities were spotless. Watch out for the ponies though, we had one in the tent trying to steal food, it got away with half a loaf of bread. We went on the dusk watch with Holly on the Sunday night and thoroughly enjoyed it, she was lovely and the deer and bats were great to see in the wild.

Keep away!
After almost more of my life than I can believe (aged 64) I find that the site has become outrageously overpriced. Overrun with ponies which at times are rather vicious. I noted on a couple of stays this year that tents are being ruined by wild ponies! No control seems to prevail over children running around nor on late night (after 10:30 pm) noise either.I have been a visitor on a very regular number of times a year for rather too long to remember. I enjoy outdoor life and camping. I am going to continue visiting but would rather be happier than I am. On another note, whilst the 'facilities' have been 'upgraded' in recent years, the site was previously better and a basic site with happy campers is better than what soon may become a more modern site with no campers. Watch out Club, you have been warned and not just by myself!

first time at rounhill with a toddler
We had a great time however there are a few things on the site that need addressing firstly they could do with a couple of lower sinks in the bathroom for children to use,also a baby bathroom would be great and lastly when it rained on our last day about 2 metres infont of our tent was a hole that filled with water and was about the size of a garden pond which was not safe with an 18month old running around i know these things are minor but in my experience of camping if these things were sorted it would be a fantastic site

Once great, now dangerous
As a family we have used Roundhill many times over the last four or five years. I have always enjoyed the site but as the years have passed the number of tent wrecking horses and donkeys that wander around all day has increased dramatically. We spent ?500 on a brand new tent this year with the sole purpose of using it at Roundhill. The donkeys let themselves in ripping the tent in several places and the horses not only ripped up the supports but tried kicking me and my kids. Sad to say we won't be back....we no longer have a tent to do so and my kids are now terrified of horses and don't want to go camping again. Had to leave early as the tent was trashed (as were others around our pitch) and the kids were scared every time a donkey or horse walked past, which is every 2 mins. Sorry Roundhill but never again.
Review by: Stuart McIntosh
Great Weekend
This was our first ever camp outside the garden, it didn't disappoint. We loved being able to pitch wherever we fancied, shower block has masses of hot water, plenty of toilets for which we never had to queue for. Yes, sometimes a little muddy under foot, but hey, you are in a field. We wanted a simple set up so that our children could play safely, entertain themselves and enjoy just being children, they had lots of fun and loved the cows and ponies roaming around. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Great location with several beautiful beaches near by. We will definitely visit again.
Review by: Jenny Taylor
Great weekend
We arrived Thursday evening at end of June and stayed to Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed our time, large, lots of space to choose from. Flat ground good for pitching tent. Showers lovely and warm and clean, never had to queue. Great location. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Review by: Camping Frenches
Wonderful site
I spent the weekend at Roundhill for the first time and had a fantastic time. The staff were fantastic and the site itself is superb. It is a family site and as such there it is not silent, but it is big enough and has such a variety of pitch sites that if you want solitude you can pitch in an area that offers it. I camped about 20 meters from the Duke of edinborough site and yes, they did play football in the early evening but they were not disruptive or rude or disrespectful of other campers (unlike the donkey that ate my belt). My fibreglass tent pole fractured and I was about to give up and go home when the staff helped me find a replacement from some abandoned kit they had stored. The facilities on site were fine (it is a campsite, not a health spa). I read some of the other reviews and was a little apprehensive due to some of the comments but I had a fabulous time at a great site. Even though a swarm of donkeys did take an unhealthy interest in my clothes and one ate my belt.

Lee review of Roundhill, New Forest
Staff and rangers were very friendly and helpful. The site was very well maintained and in a very good location for cycling and walking. With a lot of the New Forest ponies, donkeys and cattle roaming around the site it was a very good experience for us and the kids. Local shops were fairly far but that never caused us a problem. Would highly recommend this site, planning our next trip there already.

Shaz review of Roundhill, New Forest
We have used round hill a few times and enjoy the fact that there is plenty space for tents either out in the open or in the tree line. The staff have always been friendly and helpful on each visit. They are strict on the distance between units (but rightly so due to fire risks etc) - and wind breaks need to be positioned so as not to trap ponies. Once you get the idea of this then its no problem (we had to move a fully erected tent once!!). On our latest visit the site was quiet due to poor weather and only one block had hot water available. As hardy campers we loved it none the less and the ponies and cattle that roamed past our tent each day made it feel like we were on safari. The evening was a little noisy due to students/Duke of E camping near by. They settled down though and all was quiet by 10pm. We love the place and will continue to go back rain or shine, on our own or with groups of friends. There is plenty to see and do locally but we just enjoy relaxing and watching the world go by. Fab Site!!!

Adam review of Roundhill, New Forest
We've been staying at Roundhill since I can remember, I'm now 31. We stay here every year without fail. My partner and I love this site. Its beautiful, peaceful and tranquil, if you pick the right time of year! If you want to experience the quiet, don't come on a bank holiday weekend! We've never had a real problem with noisy campers, and to be honest, it adds the atmosphere and freedom you get staying at a forest campsite. Although the price is very high now (I remember when it was about �5 per night!) you still get a great break. And to be honest, the toilet blocks are not that bad, what do you expect in the middle of a forest and an AONB, at least they have showers now!!! We love Roundhill and will continue to use it for many many years....

Mrs S Foster review of Roundhill, New Forest
Our family (2 adults and 4 children) have stayed at Roundhill over the last 9 years but that was our last I'm sorry to say. Beautiful scenery and setting but the people that stay there tend to be very loud and disrespectful to others. Many children are clearly left to the their own devices and happily upset other campers. Even our children were amazed at the actions of other children on the site and said they didn't want to stay here anymore. If you are happy to endure loud music (oh and the rangers don't seem to mind this), children running through your small area causing chaos (during the night as well - how wonderful...)then this is your campsite. Not for us anymore - it used to be a lovely place to come to but us as a family have noticed the downhill turn over the last three years. What a shame. Ashurst is definitely the better option as they seem to care there and soon put a stop to any annoyance going on. Far cleaner too.

The B Family review of Roundhill, New Forest
Returned today from our first trip camping and Roundhill had been chosen by a friend. It was easy enough to pitch our tents fairly close (6m)together and ground was flat, although there were some large bumps in the middle of the grassed areas. Toilets and showers were basic but lots of hot water. Toilet block floors got filthy as it rained and people were in and out in welly boots. The toilets need some paper towels to encourage people to wipe basins after them. Only one hairdryer so you need to time your visits to the showers carefully as they can be busy. Had noisy neighbours but they did quieten down before it became a problem. Generally not a bad place to stay for our first time but don't think we would return. I had read other reviews about the staff and it being very strict, we had no problems with staff and didn't see anyone being \"repremanded\" by them. They were helpful and polite. Lots of ponies and cows roaming and great places to visit nearby.

Andy review of Roundhill, New Forest
We simply LOVE roundhill. We are set to go there in two weeks for what will be the fourth consecutive year. Its so well placed for some fantastic walks/bike rides or simply just sitting and watching the world go by. Its aprox 5 mins from Brockenhurst that has a tesco extra,chemist and chinese takeaway amongst other shops. And if you get really desperate for supplys the Go Outdoors in Southampton is less that 20 mins away! Showers on site are clean and tidy. Obviously if you go at peak times (first thing etc) you may have to que to get in but a little change of routine and a slightly later shower will see you walk straight in to a nice warm shower without any bother.

Excellent Location, Trees & Ponies review of Roundhill, New Forest
We stayed at Roundhill last May and had a wonderful time; the weather was hot and sunny. The weather was OK this week but Roundhill are not ready for the season and only one out of four(?) toilet blocks was open. This made it quite busy Easter Weekend. And this block was closed 10-11am for cleaning. We hope to return May half term but will defininitely ring before to check all is open.

Andrew review of Roundhill, New Forest
This was my first visit this year having in previous years visited it at least twice in a year. The New Forest was, as always, wonderful and the site is still wonderful. However, approach roads are much more potholed than usual, especially near the main entrance near the large oak tree. I turned right at the tree and took the second entrance and used Wash Block 3. I always expect some holes and bumps but this time they were very bad indeed but luckliy I was able to find a way to a good pitch which faced West Damage could have been done to a car or a caravan if it was not possible to avoid the pot holes. Now, I fullt expect their to be some dirst from feet etc in the wash blocks but generally they looked uncared for and dirty. I remember using them in their first season and they have not worn well at all. Sealant in the shower trays is going and the windows in the showers are looking very damaged. The water was hot and plentiful though. I regularly caravan abroad in a wide variety of sites and generally the washblocks are cleaned twice a day and it really shows. I would recommend it but with a warning. Perhaps during the winter break things could be rectified. The site lacked a feeling of being \"owned\" by those who worked there.

Elaine review of Roundhill, New Forest
I knew this site would be busy on one of the best w/ends we've had this year but I was not prepared for how VERY busy it was. As I was \"using\" it as accommodation only (I was visiting nearby family) I thought I could put up with the hustle and bustle. I could not wait to leave! It irritates me that the Forestry Commission charge me almost double what a club site would yet provides me with less facilities. Campers can go where they like - which is great if you are a family or camping in a group - but horrible if you think you have a secluded spot only to have a noisy group park themselves on your doorstep. I felt that at times, units were TOO close to others and that generally the wardens spent most of their time \"policing\" the entrance and not so much looking after the running of the site. The toilet block I used was awful. No one seemed to mop out a shower after use, probably because the bucket was full of brown water (something which takes a minute to rectify) and the building was generally in a poor state, too. Cars ignored the speed limit with some zooming along at a reckless rate. And the noise from some campers went on well into the night, with loud music from one area, but no sign of a warden to ask them to be quiet (and this was after midnight). I appreciate that a site of that size must generate a lot of work for wardens, but putting 4 of them at the gate plus 2 in the booking office must leave very few to actually look after the site itself. I will not be staying at a Forestry Site again. I'd rather pay the relatively little more and stay on a private site.

the fords review of Roundhill, New Forest
we booked our pitch for four nights but left early due to a lot of rain witch caused flooding. lots of people also got flooded and packed up to. the ground is very bumpy and the water can not get away its like a big field not really a camp site. we took our three dogs witch have to be on a lead due to the cows and horses thats not to bad but no poo bins any wear not one. it says on the foresty holidays web site recently refurbished toilets i dont think so doors did not lock taps did not work and only four showers in each of the 3 shower blocks just is not enough. the new forest is lovely but not round hill expected a lot better from forest holidays and will not be going back.

Karalyn review of Roundhill, New Forest
Sadly, this campsite is not up to the usual club standards. There are not enough toilet/shower blocks for the size of the site so they very quickly become dirty. Showers are fine once you get in them but I had to queue for 20 minutes. We also suffered from a lot of late night noise disturbance from teenagers & young drunken adults. I did tell the wardens (and I wasn't the only one complaining) but they seemed more annoyed with us for disturbing them. The ponies are the only redeeming feature of this campsite - it's wonderful to see them wandering right past your tent and The New Forest is a must visit area. Hurst Castle is well worth a visit, it's a lovely 2.5 mile sea walk from the village of Keyhaven or there is a friendly & good value taxi boat service if you don't fancy the walk. Also The New Forest visitor centre at Lyndhurst is a small but interesting place to visit. On the whole, I would gladly visit the area again but not Rounhill, I would choose a smaller & better managed site.

K Proctor review of Roundhill, New Forest
We had been using this site for over 30 years, but sadly have decided that it no longer represents good value for money. These prices would be acceptable if the facilites were of the same standard as the rest of the MAIN Camping & Caravan Club sites, but they are not. Disposal points for waste water require a physical lift of about 2 foot, which is not as standard for the Club. In general the toilet/shower facilities are completely inadequate for the size of the site, however they are kept as clean as possible on such an enormous site. As it is such a large site it can get a bit noisy in the evenings, but in general we did enjoy using the site for the entertainment (animal & human) & the fact that it is a very informal site, lending itself to group gatherings. This is a nice site, but it costs now more than we are prepared to pay for what you get.
