General

  • Peaceful site in a hamlet on the edge of a traditional village
  • A 10-minute drive to Fordingbridge and the New Forest National Park
  • Half a mile to the local pub via a footpath; walkers' paradise

Getting back to basics is the aim of the game at Cae Malwen Farm, made up of grassy paddocks set in a small hamlet on the edges of the traditional English village of Rockbourne. Attractions and activities at this Hampshire park are focused on its natural surroundings, with peaceful vibes boosted by a no-noise policy after dark.

Local walks are easily accessed too at this wild site in the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the network of footpaths snaking through the surrounding countryside. A row of thatched cottages following the line of the river flowing through the valley is a minute's stroll from the site too and a pub serving food and booze is a short saunter away.

If you fancy bringing a bit of decadence to the hol by dining out for every meal, a couple of other inns are in the villages of Damerham and Whitsbury, both about a five-minute drive or under a 45-minute walk via a car-free trail. Restaurants are in Fordingbridge just on the outskirts of the New Forest National Park (10 minutes’ drive), along with a cinema, a park on the Avon and a supermarket.

To source food nearer the park, a village shop’s at Sandleheath a five-minute drive away: bag supplies fofr the barbecue and cook them up while you get toasty by one of the site’s firepits (with logs available to buy on base).

Excellent site, basics but exceeded expectations04/09/2023

    Everything. Campsite was peaceful, near enough to Fordingbridge whilst being suitably quiet and remote. Good size, great surroundings.

    It had everything we needed - it isn't the most luxurious campsite, but that's not what we wanted or expected. There's a sink for washing up, "only" two toilets (but we never had to wait).

    The free on-site firepits are popular and can go fast: we didn't get one for our first night, but Jules kindly located a spare one for our second night.

    Fabulous site. Pick your own place to set up with plenty of space. Very clear instructions of site location texted prior to arrival. Beautiful views with lovely walks to nearby pubs in pretty village with thatched cottages. Facilities very clean with nice added touch of deodorants and sanitary products. Very friendly owner on site to assist with any questions. Firepits provided with the option to buy logs. As its a dark sky area the stars were just amazing on our last night! We loved our stay

    The manager is so friendly and so concerned about our requests. They provided free firepit and wood (not free).

    The area is very big and relaxed, also in a town and close to a very sweet and very old pub.

    Site was well laid out and tidy with spacious pitches in a lovely rural landscape. Families nearby were lovely and the kids all had a ball playing together which made the adults life easy!
    Having flushing toilets with paper and toiletaries included and a washing station with water tap and soaps made life v comfortable. Weather was good so overall a very good stay. We would highly recommend to other families looking for a peaceful comfortable stay.

Local attractions

Stonehenge is within a half an hour drive's and other historical places of interest are close by – including the Rockbourne Roman Villa Museum just 15 minutes’ walk away.

Breamore House (10 minutes) is a prime place if you prefer your outings to include a glimpse of a country pile’s stately paintings and furniture, while the New Forest Water Park (15 minutes) has modern facilities like a wakeboarding centre and inflatable aqua park as well as places to kayak using the available equipment.

For swimming instead of SUP-ing, the sandy sweep of Bournemouth beach is 35 minutes south and is reachable on a scenic journey that goes through the lush green Moors Valley Country Park & Forest.

If you’d rather stick to the area’s old-school offerings, Salisbury and its spectacular cathedral are about 20 minutes’ drive away and the ancient town of Ringwood with a weekly market dating back to the Middle Ages takes 25 minutes to reach. And of course, there’s not much in the area more ancient than the New Forest, created by William I in about 1079 for royal hunts...

Must see

  • Breamore House (2.3 miles)
  • Salisbury Cathedral (7.4 miles)
