Amid ancient beech woods and abundant ferns in the New Forest National Park, Longbeech Caravan and Camping Site is a fabulous spot for a back-to-nature adventure that’ll make you feel like you’re light years away from everyday life.
Spacious grass pitches are tucked in among the trees in an open clearing, with stunning woodland views all around. And if you’re hoping to catch sight of the local wildlife, hopefully you won’t have to wait too long – the New Forest’s famed free-roaming ponies and deer are often seen grazing peacefully around the site.
The atmosphere at Longbeech is one of splendid isolation and proper peace, but in fact it’s not completely remote – the village of Fritham (all thatched cottages and ducks on the pond…) is actually only five minutes’ drive away. Stop off for a pint at its destination pub and you’re sure to see New Forest ponies wandering freely down the street. You’re also almost guaranteed to see the wild ponies wandering around Bramshaw (10 minutes’ drive away), if you go to pick up supplies from the well-stocked local shop.
For more wildlife spottings, a short family-friendly cycle ride takes you to Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary (20 minutes’ cycle) where fallow deer are often spied grazing in the meadows. And for a gentle introduction to walking in the New Forest, numerous way-marked hiking routes are accessible directly from your pitch.
‘Wild camping’ is very much the vibe here so it’s worth noting that there are no toilets, showers or electric connections at Longbeech.

Please note: visitors must check in at Ocknell Campsite when they arrive. The site is on the same road going towards the A31, about half a mile from Longbeech. The road signed ‘Fritham and Eyeworth Only’ is a dead end.
You don’t need to travel far to start exploring the New Forest National Park – just head out on one of the waymarked trails running from the site for a walk or a bike ride. You may well spot a fair bit of wildlife along the way, but if you’d like to be sure of what you’ll see, head to Liberty’s Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre (15 minutes’ drive) or the New Forest Wildlife Park (half an hour).
Day out around here aren’t all about the nature – it’s easy to mix up those outdoor activities with visits to places like Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World (15 minutes) or to swoon over classic engineering at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu and Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum (both half an hour).
Keep travelling south and you’ll hit the coast with a drive of half an hour or so – some of the top spots to visit include the ‘living museum’ of 18th-century Buckler’s Hard and the seaside town of Lymington, which has a saltwater swimming pool and several watersports centres as well as the terminal for the Isle of Wight ferries.
