- Spacious family campsite in the New Forest, set on a 500-acre farm
- Next to a holiday village with pools, bike hire, restaurants and bars
- Local pub within two minutes' walk
Friendly Folds Farm Camping in Fordingbridge is fairly fab... for it has miles of cantering, cycling and trekking trails direct from its turf in the heart of the New Forest, and you can bring your own geegee if you have one.
Other fab facts: it's dog-friendly and family-friendly down on the farm, as the team welcomes families with teeny tots, small sorts and canine campers to roam around its safely spacious site, all set in a secluded field away from busy roads and surrounded by woodland and open fields.
Folds Farm's amenities include free hot showers with a changing area, sink and mirror, flushing and well-maintained portaloo style toilets, three water standpipes, dishwashing sinks and free use of a freezer for ice packs – all facilities are lit at night. A breakfast and snack service is available at weekends and on bank holidays.
And another fab fact the fifth (perhaps this should have come first), the local pub is a footling two minutes' walk from the farm and you'll find many more trad New Forest inns within a ten-minute drive. Cheers.
And! The farm is next to Sandy Balls Holiday Village and farm guests are welcome to wander in and use the facilities there, like the heated indoor and outdoor pools, several play parks, bar and restaurant and bike hire point. A peaceful farm park with a pool and more play in easy proximity? How fab.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From Cadnam on the M27 come off at Junction 1 and take the B3078 to Godshill. Continue for approximately 10miles up to the Fighting Cocks pub on the right. Take the next right turn signposted Woodgreen and Chapelfield Campsite is about 200 meters on the left.
From Ringwood take the A338 and follow the signs to Fordingbridge for approximately 5 miles. At Fordingbridge take the B3078 to Godshill for about 3 miles. Drive through the village and cross the cattle grid. Turn left just before the Fighting Cocks pub signposted Woodgreen. Folds Farm Camping is about 200 meters on the left.
Fordingbridge is in a mighty handy Hampshire location, right in the New Forest but not too far a drive to day trips at the Jurassic Coast, Stonehenge and the beaches of Bournemouth and the rest of Dorset. Paultons Family Theme Park – yes, home to a certain pig named Peppa – is about nine miles' trot away.
In the New Forest, many folk like a look at Beaulieu, a very full (and fab) day out around Beaulieu village that includes the National Motor Museum, Palace House and Gardens, Beaulieu Abbey and the World of Top Gear.
Bucklers Hard, part of the Beaulieu estate, was once where many of Nelson's ships were constructed and these days has a small maritime museum and a yachting marina.
East of Beaulieu across the river from Bucklers Hard, famed Exbury Gardens will probably be another full day out, to properly see the rock garden, sundial garden, riverside camellia walk and the blooming big collections of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. Plant fans could also check out the collections at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Romsey, which have over 42,000 specimens from regions all over the world.
Going towards Dorset and the coast, a drive of less than 15 miles west from Folds Farm will see sand hunters at the beaches of Christchurch; from there, drive further west to Swanage and the start of the fossily fab Jurassic Coast.
