Any barbecues used on our sites should be specifically designed and used only for the purpose of cooking food (i.e. not firepits). They should be robust, secure and able to be raised off of the forest floor, there should be no damage or marks left on the ground where they have been used. In support of the New Forest Action Plan, we are asking campers not to bring disposable barbecues for their stay. We are also reminding campers that outside of our sites, no barbecues of any kind are now allowed anywhere in the New Forest.

Please do not feed, pet or approach the animals in and around the campsite; they may look friendly but are unpredictable and can bite and kick. Please keep all food sealed and out of reach of the ponies

Lovely place to stay.
Great place to stay. No toilets or showers but there is water and waste disposal. Grass pitch only which can get soft depending on the weather. Horses, cows etc pass through during the day. Lots of walking through the forest. Does get very busy during school holidays. Staff are very friendly. Will be going back.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Another Fantastic Stay
I have visited Aldridge Hill Campsite for a number of years now. Its always great to return and take in the wonderful New Forest surroundings... and just relax. Always a friendly welcome from the staff, Thank you all and see you in 2022. Neal
Unit Type: Caravan
Just wonderful
We are new to this camping life. Second visit got back today because the site now closes until May Honestly it’s quiet, beautiful, the animals passing through are wonderful. If you want a relaxing stay please visit this site. It really makes me happy here. I painted my first painting this weekend and rode a bike for the first time in 45 years. Didn’t want to leave
Unit Type: Camper Van
Good as always
We love Aldridge Hill. Staff are great, site is very close to perfect
Unit Type: Caravan
Amazing as always !
As always amazing and always a great stay and great wardens. To make it even more perfect , make it a green site and ban noisy and smelly generators altogether. A very few users ,whist sticking to the rules, have loud building site generators ….
Unit Type: Camper Van
We stayed here with a group of friends and our children, the site is amazing and the kids can play all day on their bikes, the river is a stone throw from the site and the kids loved it, the staff were all really friendly, we will certainly be coming back
Unit Type: Tent
First time staying at this site, thought it was a little over crowded, though we managed to get a lovely spot, before the bank holiday. Would like to mention that some of the trees alongside the road could do with being cut back as even though we moved onto grass, they managed to scrape our Motorhome. That being said, will definitely return, the wardens were brilliant and super friendly. The walks are just incredible and even though there are horses roaming everywhere, there is just so much space to allow your dog freedom of the lead, as long as they are well behaved of course. It was so busy, but even then you could still find a quiet spot along the river for a picnic and allow your dog to cool off. Thank you…WILL be back.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
10 stars!
Absolutely fab campsite! Loads of space even when full, beautiful views over the heath and lovely trees and stream. The people running it couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful, they were super. We were made to feel very welcome and they took time to talk with us even though they were really busy. Everywhere around the site was very clean, no litter and the bin/water areas spotless. Even though it was a busy bank holiday the campsite was quiet come 10.30pm and there was a happy family buzz the rest of the time. We are looking forward to coming back.

good to be back
It was good to be back at our favorite site again, we have been coming here for over thirty years and still can't fault the place. We love it here, the site is perfect, the wardens are friendly, no phone single, peace and tranquility in abundance. We were delighted to see that the rules for the site had been relaxed slightly. Dogs not having to be kept on leads allowing them to run lose around the site. Dog owners not having to clear up after their dogs. The need not to have a separate toilet tent, The new pot washing facilities that have been provided at the tap. the removal of the 5mph speed limit and I think it was great that the wardens went to the trouble of filling in the pot holes in the road, so that the vehicles could drive faster through the site. That they are now providing free filling up and emptying facilities for camper vans and motor homes who are not staying on the site, free overnight camping providing you slip on and off site at the right time. Free overnight stays for visitors to units already booked on site when it clearly states no visitors. Allowing open fires in fire pits despite the obvious dangers from flying embers to campers and the surrounding area, the relaxation of playing of ball games on site and I even manage to have two wind breaks up at one time. I also commend the charity work that Camping in the Forest are doing, by allowing neighbors of nightmare neighbors, some rest bite by allowing the nightmare neighbors, to camp and carry on as normal screaming, shouting, barking dogs and playing loud music etc: However the site was quite after 10-30 so

Quiet spot in the heart of the forest
We stayed for 3 nights in August. Although the site was large and full it didn't feel so due to the layout. Easy access to Brockenhurst and a great location for walking or cycling direct from the campsite
