- Toilets, communal area, washing-up area and firepit
Meonside Camping is a peaceful and easily accessible chalk hill valley site on the banks of the River Meon, ten minutes' walk from the village of East Meon.
The site is well set for walking and cycling, as it's adjacent to the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty cycle route and a 15-minute walk to the main trail route of the South Downs Way, through the South Downs National Park.
Meonside is a working farm busy with life all year round. It has basic facilities including toilets, a firepit, drinking water, a washing up area and a communal seating area. The owners limit the numbers of guests to very few, to give everyone plenty of space and to keep the valley as natural as possible.
The site is on a mixed farm with cattle sheep and arable land.

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.
Perfect stopover if your walking the South Downs Way
From the manager...
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! It is a great shame you didn't get any wood as we drive around the site selling wood to everyone in big bags. We must have missed each other somehow. When you visit again, rest assured we sell wood, kindling and paper to light your own camp fire as this is a great part of the whole Camping experience!
