Our hostel is a converted family home located on a secluded unmade lane about half a mile outside Burley village in the heart of the New Forest. The hostel has a large garden and the site is a peaceful and safe place for all, whether individuals, families or small groups. Burley village, a short walk away, has a number of gift shops along with several cafés and pubs.
The hostel has a lounge, two fully equipped self-catering kitchens (one inside and one outside), two dining areas (one inside and one outside), a cycle store and a drying room. We serve a buffet-style cooked/continental breakfast each morning, and offer packed lunches which can be booked on arrival. Home-cooked evening meals are served from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.
Facilities include a camping block with a shower and toilet. There are two small self-catering kitchens (one inside and one in the campers' block) equipped with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. Fridges, kettles, toaster, cloths, tea towels and washing-up liquid are also provided. Barbecues are permitted, if raised off the ground.

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.
