Better than I remember 30 years ago, and it was great then.
Used to bring our young sons here regularly 25-35 years ago in our caravan. This half term we returned in our motorhome, bringing grandchildren for the first (but certainly not the last) time. The kids, and we, had a great time. Wild camping in the forest is better than any man made playground or site entertainment; and the peace and quiet at night is realy welcomed by grandchildren who are asleep by 8pm and OAPs asleep by 10pm. Just the essential facilities, but very well provided, friendly welcoming staff, and hardly any rubbish around the well kept site. Only down side was inconsiderate dog owners. Dogs are supposed to be on a lead on the site. We have a grandson who is frightened of dogs (having been attacked by one at 2 year old). During our stay a dog chased him right into our awning and I had to grab it and take it out, my grandson son was terrified and had nightmares that night (the owner said it was just being playful!!!!) another day an owner started throwing a ball into the water where childen were playing for their dog to fetch. There is lots of forest where dogs can be exercised off lead. There should be signs on the site to remind owners to keep dogs on a lead on the site.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Perfect when not fully booked
We came at the start of bank holiday weekend. It was hard to find a pitch as I believe it was too busy. However once the bank holiday was over, the site was lovely. You come to here for the peace and quiet and to enjoy the views, which if too busy you can't do. At busy times feels like a commercial site, but once quietest it's perfect ! Wardens are very friendly and helpful. They are always around site somewhere. Site is beautiful and the river is great on hot days for a paddle. Will be back but not on a bank holiday. Lots of useful local information by wardens hut including maps. Cycle/walking paths from site avoiding roads so no need to use car is you don't want too. This is a beautiful site. But please forest holidays don't over book this site I would rather pay a bit more for the experience than pay less and feel like iam not camping in the forest and on a commercial site.
Unit Type: Caravan
Super charming place

Unit Type: Camper Van

Mr Dickerson review of Aldridge Hill, New Forest
Our favourite site ever. Just drive in and pick a spot and stop. No hook ups or toilet blocks (hooray!) just peaceful, lovely views quiet and new forest ponies walking around the van. Ideal for cycling through the forest, get to The Oak pub at Bank (good pub guide)in 20 minutes cycling (just one small part on a single track road). Walk into Brockenhurst takes about half an hour through the fields. Kids will love it mucking about in the nearby streams. Just about perfick!

Anon review of Aldridge Hill, New Forest
Busy at weekends with units crammed onto the site. Quite peacefull during the week Organiser not on site full time. Site poorly drained so a little rain quickly causes flooding. Ponys come and go as they please which is nice. Attractions, Beaulieu Motor Museum and House well worth the double visit (free second time around when we went) as was the Falconry display. Bucklers Hard was interesting. Solent Sky Museum also interesting (Southampton - follow the dock signs). Traffic in Lyndhurst is a nightmare especially coming from Brockenhurst. Good camp shops in Brockenhurst and do visit the Chippy to the south of the Village. Allow extra time to travel south from Brockenhurst, we caught the level crossing everytime we went south with one exception in 2 weeks.
BadBoy review of Aldridge Hill, New Forest
This is a basic site with no facilities, so if your a glamper don't bother reading any further. We stayed after prolonged rain, and signs of flooding were very evident in parts of the site. Although you can pitch anywhere you like we were also advised by the staff where not to pitch and we found a pitch which was firm and dry. Pitches are fairly flat throughout the site. There are several water points around the site, as well as waste disposal, rubbish and recycling points. The river Ober runs along one side of the site, and at this point it is little more than a large shallow stream which the children enjoyed paddling in. There are also other activities run by the managers for the children. Some kind of treasure hunt, a nature trail thing. Not too sure what they all are as we only have a baby who's too young for that stuff. The site is open to nature so the ponies have a free run of the site, however I think someone must clean up after them as there wasn't that much mess about. Due to it's remoteness, in the evenings the site is dark, and only lit by the moon and other campers units, which on a clear summers evening makes for great star gazing. The site managers were helpful and friendly, and offer mobile phone & leisure battery charging for a fee as well as freezer pack re-freezing. To further annoy glampers, we found only a very weak O2 mobile signal available, and very sporadic signal on Orange & T-Mobile, and no network on Vodaphone. Digital TV signal is good. Generators are permitted between 9-11am and 3-5pm only. The village of Brockenhurst is a 1. 5mile walk and has a variety of shops for souvenirs, cream teas and the like as well as 2 small supermarkets (Tesco Metro and Nisa). There is also a pet shop/camping supplies shop just in case you forget anything.
