Setthorns campsite, New Forest, Hampshire

Please note that there are no shower or toilet facilities on the campsite, therefore your own chemical toilet is essential.

Setthorns offers beautifully secluded and private pitches which provide campers with a uniquely tranquil holiday. Resting among the shade of majestic oaks and pine trees, Setthorns provides the ultimate seclusion, which may be why it is so popular with those looking for a truly unique camping holiday.

Pitch your tent in the peaceful setting of Setthorns and enjoy an abundance of wildlife, including free roaming ponies and deer. Rare, wild birds can be seen in their natural environment, and small mammals busy themselves as they go about their daily lives in the forest’s heathland and woodland.

With direct access from the campsite, the nearby dismantled railway line is a great place to walk or cycle, and there are fantastic trackways into the forest ideal for exploring the local flora and fauna. Because of its unique environment, the New Forest is an area of special interest and home to some very rare flowers, many used in herbal medicine that predates today’s modern pharmaceutical industry.

Sway is the nearest local village at 1.5 miles away which has a well-stocked Londis. Brockenhurst is three miles away and offers a wider variety of shops including a Tesco Express. There are great attractions for those wishing to go further afield including Beaulieu, Burley and Paultons Theme Park- with a Peppa Pig World.

Setthorns offers the thrill of camping close to nature.
