Delightfully Quiet
Arrived on the last day before the closure for ground nesting birds. It was lovely and quiet and good weather. We had a vast choice of location. It was lovely to wake up to ponies grazing around the motorhome. Staff were very helpful.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Brilliant again....
This was our 4th visit to Aldridge Hill and it was classic New Forest once again, safe streams to play in, easy cycle trails for kids, ponies and deer adding lots of character. The birding is great here, cuckoo's, herons, woodpeckers, kingfishers all on the site. It was extremely clean around the campsite and surrounding forest which is always a pleasant surprise in modern Britain. Love it. Only note of caution is to avoid the greasy takeaway from brockenhurst kebabs!
Unit Type: Camper Van
Had the most amazing 5days at this site. It’s magical ,the most beautiful setting by a river with ponies and cows grazing around you. Plenty of walks and cycling. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Our grandson cried when we left , had to book another week before we left .
Unit Type: Motorhome
Fab campsite, child friendly, excellent location
I have been camping on this site for over 30 years, firstly as a child and now with my children. It is a fantastic campsite for kids, with the stream, rope swings, forrest to play in. There is a real community spirit on this site with the same families going back year after year
Unit Type: Trailer Tent
Beautiful location with helpful staff
This is a stunning campsite with basic facilities for a true camping experience! We have returned several times to the New Forest and have decided that this is the best campsite of them all, as long as you are well-prepared with fully charged leisure battery, working toilet and ideally hot water in the caravan! The campsite staff, Bob and Chris, cannot be faulted. They go over and above what you would expect to ensure that your holiday is as stress-free as possible. Their local knowledge, friendly advice and helpful attitudes are excellent and made our stay so enjoyable. The campsite is well-looked after and a pleasure to stay in. There are cycle and walking routes straight from the campsite into the Forest as well as the village of Brockenhurst within a mile or so. Cycle route maps and bus tickets are available from the campsite reception. There are two main options for camping here: on the open field with beautiful views across the heather or under the trees by the river. Our children love the river as there is a rope swing and plenty of opportunity for paddling and playing. And to top it all the ponies and cows of the New Forest are free to roam around the campsite. They caused us no bother and were a delight to watch, reminding us of how in touch with nature the campsite is. We would definitely recommend Aldridge Hill and cannot wait to be able to return for our next trip!

Beautiful site even in the rain
Wonderful setting, beautiful views. Well placed for long peaceful walks with the family and dog. Nature on your doorstep quite literally. Ideal for great bike rides and lots to do in the area. Only 3 miles to Brockenhurst and 17 to the coast. We have 2 young children 4 and 7 and they thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. Definitely be heading back to the forest very soon
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
A great site in the heart of the forest
We really enjoyed our stay at Aldridge hill. It's beautifully placed with in the new forest, and a short bike ride or walk from brockenhurst village where you can enjoy pubs, cafes, local shops including an excellent bakers. It is a nice and quiet site that are dog friendly, and the staff are very friendly, helpful and informative. A great site that I will definitely go back back to. Many thanks all at Aldridge hill.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Peaceful and right on the open forest
As we live locally we'd never thought of camping 5 miles from home. As we have a VW camper with toilet this was the perfect site. It was like rough camping in the forest in one of the best parts of the New Forest. There's an off road forest walk to Brockenhurst village centre without any traffic. We rode mountain bikes with well behaved dogs to the village. Perfect !! We will be ba k again next weekend - highly recommended

The Best Campsite!
We have been visiting this campsite for a number of years. As ever it was a perfect holiday, only problem being we only stayed for 1 week instead of the usual 2! If you want a nice peaceful holiday, plenty of wildlife including the usual Ponies, Cows and Deer and a back to basics holiday (no toilets, showers or electric) then this is the perfect place. Our dog Maisie found the river going through the site very welcoming as the temperatures were very hot the weekend we were there. The site managers, as always, were very friendly. A half hour or so walk into Brockenhurst (a number of different routes) finds plenty of shops for your supplies and a number of pubs, a favourite of ours it Nachos at The Snakecatcher then and Ice Cream from the shop next door. We shall be back - two weeks next time!
