- Small farm site in the New Forest National Park
- A 25-minute drive from Southampton and 40 minutes from Stonehenge
- Within walking distance of a pub, Italian restaurant and forest trails
Heading to the New Forest with canoeing, cycling or swinging from treetops on your mind? You’ll soon be spreading your wings from Carron Caravan and Camping Site, a small, quiet farm site in the New Forest National Park, well-situated for scouting out Stonehenge too, 40 minutes’ drive away (that’s one to tick off the bucket list).
As for your packing list, walking boots or sturdy shoes will likely come in handy here, as the surrounding area is jammed full of forest trails and many that can be accessed directly from the site on foot or by bicycle.
For a lighter stretch of your legs (perhaps first thing in the morning), perhaps you’ll want to wander past the site's open fields used for horse grazing and then amble on down to the village green where New Forest ponies often graze (it’s only five minutes’ journey there).
Handily, the local village is also home to a traditional family-run pub that serves tasty food and local beers. And when you want to mix things up a little, there’s an Italian restaurant next door for some alternative cuisine with a fine-dining vibe.
Looking for a watering hole with a bigger city vibe instead? The local bus stop (two minutes’ walk away) has direct links to Salisbury (25 minutes’ drive) and Southampton (half an hour).
On site, there are plenty of convenient facilities including an amenities block, so you won’t have to go far to take care of the essentials.

While they may be dreamy, it’s not all about the walks and New Forest ponies around here. There are paintballing centres within five minutes’ drive and for a buzzier feel, Southampton’s galleries, museums and city centre entertainment (25 minutes' drive) or Salisbury (25 minutes) and its cathedral. While you’re on the places with a buzz, one such spot is the family-friendly Paultons Park Home of Peppa Pig World (15 minutes).
All about the blood-pumping activities while you’re on your hols? Moors Valley Country Park & Forest (25 minutes) might be one for you, as there’s a steam railway, Go Ape course, golf course and country trails, or perhaps Lepe Country Park (40 minutes) for walking, swimming and birdwatching. In Lymington (35 minutes), the water takes the show, with sailing, fishing and swims in sea water baths some of the activities to be had.
Now, to look to the past, you’ll be delving into the history of the motor at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu (half an hour). Meanwhile, Hurst Castle (45 minutes), a fortress by the sea, was once home to Henry VIII and now has ferry rides and Victorian wing batteries.
