A sunny day on site

General

  • Spacious site in the New Forest National Park, near Fordingbridge
  • Half an hour's drive from Bournemouth and Southampton
  • Forest walks and bike rides from the site; pub two minutes' walk

A night or few in a national park? How very fab. And it gets even more fab for folk staying at Chapelfield Camping at Godshill, for they can walk or cycle directly into the forest (that’s the New Forest National Park, in case you’d not quite picked that up…) or stroll down to the local pub in a couple of minutes (easy access to pints and pub food – always a bonus).

This family-friendly Hampshire site is up in the north-western corner of the national park, just outside the teeny village of Godshill and five minutes’ drive from Fordingbridge (your nearest source of supermarket supplies and all the bits you’ll need for your barbecue).

If you’ve not managed to pack a barbecue, there’s no need to miss out on alfresco cooking as you can hire a firepit on site (huzzah). A pop-up shop on site keeps guests supplied with milk, bread and other everyday essentials, and you can buy charcoal and logs on site too. Drinking water standpipes are scattered around the site, and there’s a washing-up area with hot water, cloths and washing-up liquid (so no excuses for kids to skip their duties…).

Also on site is a shower block whose six units each have free hot water, a dressing area and a mirror; portaloo-style toilets are around the field, and lit up by night to avoid stumbles. Gadget addicts will also be chuffed to learn of the mobile phone charging point (huzzah again…).

Please note

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, customers can amend their dates with the campsite/holiday park free of charge for all stays up to, and including, 31 Dec 2021.

Group bookings of 6 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

There are no bins onsite: all rubbish will need to be taken home with you.

    The whole campsite staff was very helpful always had a smile on their faces. Great idea with the fire pits kept us very warm in the evening and made a delicious jacket spuds in the pit.The whole family atmosphere was paramount lovely to see children going back to basics and playing and not on tech that was definitely the reasons why we came camping to give my children a break from it all and it certainly did that! They played and it was great to see it. Even tho the toilet was porter loos they was very clean.The washing up facilities only had cold water but we just boiled the kettle for hot water.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike about camping here.

    The staff were great and incredibly helpful. Decent facilities including a little shop for essentials you may forget. The phone charging station was really helpful! Close to a pub, beautiful walks and lots of activities (water park, high ropes, maize maze).

    Disliked: 

    We were placed on a pitch on a slope which was tricky as our tent’s integrity is better on a flat surface. Our pitch was also right behind two large groups which meant it wasn’t as peaceful if a stay as we’d hoped for. In future I’d ask for a pitch along the trees where you only have neighbours either side rather than being in the middle where you have neighbours in front, back and sides.

    Friendly and helpful staff, tuc tuc rides. Clean facilities, helpful little things like being able to charge your phone for free etc and ice packs. Really enjoyed the ice cream van that came round the campsite everynight. Also enjoyed the different food trucks that they had arranged to attend on different days in the week. Great food!

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch was on a slope which meant our beds slipped down and touched the outside of the tent every night, Which didn't help in the rain. It was so steep, that our little boy who has just started walking really struggled to do any walking while at the campsite.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch was on a hill...not ideal at all. There was alternative pitch’s but not given those....only the large tents were on the outside of the fields (no hills). Struggled to make the BBQ and table safe due to being in a hill. Weather was so poor and as we were in the middle of the field we had no chance against the wind but those on the outside of the field were OK. Had to leave only 1 night into a 3 night stay...no credit note offered. A number of family's who had to leave were not offered credit’s.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The New Forest’s famed for its ponies, and you may well spot a few as you wander on local paths; if you’d rather get saddled up for a ride, an equestrian centre is five minutes’ drive away. For a supersized equine day out, head to the Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park (15 minutes’ drive) to meet some rare-breed horses, drive tractors and ride in miniature pony carriages.

If you’ve lucked out with some hot weather (fingers crossed…), take the chance to cool off by scampering over the inflatable obstacles at the New Forest Water Park (10 minutes’ drive) – even if you don’t plan to end up in the water, it’s highly likely you’ll topple in at some point. Those of mature enough years may instead prefer to chill out with a tipple at Ringwood Brewery (15 minutes).

Up for a bit of sea air? Bournemouth’s excellent beach is half an hour away, as are the various sailing and watersports centres in Southampton. Towards the coast but still in the New Forest are Exbury Gardens, Buckler’s Hard historic boatyard and the Beaulieu estate (home of the National Motor Museum). All are about 40 minutes’ drive from the site.

Must see

  • Breamore House (4.5 kilometres)
  • Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway (14.3 kilometres)
  • Paultons Family Theme Park (14.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Mompesson House (15.0 kilometres)
  • Mottisfont (18.9 kilometres)
