- Spacious and peaceful working farm site on the banks of the river Meon
- A 15-minute walk to the South Downs Way
- Toilets, communal area, washing-up area and firepit
Rolling hills, a gently sloping valley, a chalk-bed river and some friendly local cows – if you fancy waking up to views like these on your next trip, make tracks for Meonside Camping, a Hampshire site 10 minutes' drive from Petersfield.
This site is particularly well set up for walkers and cyclists: it's right next to the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty cycle route and an easy 15-minute stroll from the popular South Downs Way. More scenic surrounds are on hand in and around the South Downs National Park: head 20 minutes down the road by car for picnics at Queen Elizabeth Country Park or spectacular views at Beacon Hill Nature Reserve.
Meonside Camping is a working farm, so there's plenty of animal and plant life on display here throughout the year. Guests at this back-to-basics site have access to well-kept facilities including toilets, a firepit, drinking water, communal seating and a washing-up area. The folk in charge of this place like to keep things on the quiet side, so guest numbers are kept low to ensure plenty of space and peace and quiet for all.
If you fancy cooking over coals, set up a barbecue and get sizzling; those who feel like leaving the meal prep to someone else can head off to East Meon, a 15-minute stroll away, for great pub grub at one of two local boozers.
Open from 07/04/2020 to 09/30/2020

From the manager...
We apologise for not being able to stop a small minority of selfish campers from upsetting your stay. It is a great frustration as we make it very clear we are a quiet, family site but unfortunately these rules were broken.
I'm afraid due to Coronavirus, we are not disposing of our campers rubbish and we feel it fair to ask guests, if they brought it, they can take it home.
The site website clearly states there are no showers.
A tap and portaloo ideal for tents.
From the manager...
We are sorry you struggled to find the site. All the lanes surrounding the campsite are wide enough for caravans as they surround a working farm. The campsite is on Google Maps and the sign is on the road so not to confuse anyone.
