As you settle into your pitch, taking in all the site has to offer including the New Forest’s beautiful free-roaming ponies, relaxation will subtly work its way into your life.

Once you’re settled in, why not enjoy one of the many forest walks accessed directly from site? We recommend following the relaxing Ober Water Trail and taking in the beautiful scenery composed of ancient trees and the calm Ober Water.

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

We have been visiting this site for, probably 30 years. We love it best of all the campsites in the Forrest. Wish it was open for longer
Unit Type: Motorhome
Amazing Value
For the cost I wasn't really expecting much so when we turned up I was chuffed to bits. Firstly the manager Chris (female) was extremely friendly and very helpful obviously a very experienced employee with the Trust. Campsite was so clean , so much so you would struggle to find any rubbish , even off site in the forest walks for dogs. Beautiful setting with great views and a stream running through the centre of camp that kept the children at the campsite entertained for hours. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time there and even extended our stay on Sunday to have a late check out as we found the whole experience very relaxing. Obviously camped at numerous sites and this is one of the best
Unit Type: Camper Van
Wonderful site
Aldridge hill is nestled in a beautiful setting. Heathland one side, forest and rivers the other side. We had a fantastic stay and will be going back. Been to other sites, this site has everything. Management staff very friendly, warm, helpful and welcoming.
Unit Type: Tent
Weeks Stay

Unit Type: Caravan
Peace perfect peace!
This campsite is as close to perfection as you can get if you want simplicity and a perfectly peaceful break. The wardens are exceptionally helpful and the warm welcome was very much appreciated. It is a nature lovers delight, with sightings of a vast array of birds, squirrels, deer and horses to name a few. The walks from the site are wonderful and with Brockenhurst 5 minutes away by car if you don't want to walk or cycle in, you have everything that you need. We simply can't wait for our next stay as it is one of our favourite sites in the whole of the country.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Great location, excellent reception. Facilities limited as expected, but pristine.
Can’t fault the site at all, idyllic. Weekend was marred by three Friday arrivals that parked unnecessarily close. Not close enough to moan, but close enough to intrude. Large group in tents arrived Saturday, to enjoy a party. Fine and understood but noise, dogs and liberal behaviour made me move. Fault was in my choice, would avoid weekends next time.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Beautiful campsite.
Myself my husband and our dog had our first weekend away in our campervan.. we chose Aldridge hill and we were so pleased that we did, it is a wonderful campsite no fuss just nature.. we saw squirels, horses, cows, birds and the cutest little donkey. Steve and Chris were wonderful.. we will be back
Unit Type: Camper Van
Lovely campsite by the river
First time we visited Aldridge Hill. I would not recommend camping up the top end near the river. General public got access from a carpark the other side and we got barking dogs and people jumping into the river screaming. We didn't enjoy our first night. The staff on this campsite are absolutely wonderful, They listened to our concerns and found us a spot behind the office. Peace at last. The staff were friendly, welcoming. and helpful. They even lent us a hammer as we left ours at home. Great team. We certainly will visit again.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Lovely stay in great location
We had a lovely 2 nights at Aldridge Hill, great location for all that went..children and pets too! Walking distance to the lovely village of Brokenhurst where there are several pubs, cafes and shops. It was our first time to a site with no facilities and we managed fine.
Unit Type: Caravan
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.
