"Your peaceful hideaway in the forest". Do come and see what the Jurassic South Coast has to offer...or just chill out here. Hillside Caravan and Campsite is uniquely well protected naturally by the forest, and our height above sea level along with our superb underground drainage system means we never flood or become boggy! We offer exclusive discounted camping for the emergency services, armed forces, NHS workers, disabled guests and OAPs - just let us know at the time of booking.
Hillside Campsite is peacefully nestled into the 150,000 acres of the Ringwood Forest at Verwood (part of the 'old' King's forest of Cranborne Chase), and open all year round. Diane and Brian are always pleased to share their lovely five acres with guests: you can walk or cycle straight out of Hillside's gates, through our other fields directly into and along the 30-odd miles of beautiful forest tracks, without any dangerous road work.
Children can safely play or learn to cycle anywhere on the campsite, clearly visible from any pitch, as camping is only allowed along the perimeter (this makes each pitch more spacious and private; you can't hear your 'neighbours' snoring). This leaves plenty of room for other guests to play badminton, boules or just share a glass of wine and the odd barbecued sausage or two.
The large modern facilities are both private and very clean: there are 10 electric hook-ups available (modern, safe 10-amp supply units on separate mains - so no loss of current due to another's pitch being overloaded). Ice-packs are exchangeable for the more traditional camper.
The nearest road is 200 metres away, so there are no road noises or street lamps ruining the night sky - in fact, one common comment about Hillside is that guests here can enjoy watching the moon creep across a carpet of sparkling stars, to the tunes of the night jars and owls.
There is a no noise rule before 9am and after 9pm (with talking etc allowed) for all guests' comfort. A zero-tolerance to stupidity, aggression, annoyance to other guests or Hillside is operated.
We have won four awards for excellence, including the Camping & Caravanning Club's 'Your Place in the Countryside' award in 2001.
We are looking forward to welcoming you and yours. Brian and Diane.

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request. Click the 'Make another booking like this' button on the confirmation page to take you back to your chosen campsite/park listing page so you can make your next booking straight away. Please note the same dates and party size will be used, so you'll need to change this if the number of people or child ages are different.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
