Set in the New Forest National Park

General

  • Family-friendly site in the grounds of a New Forest activity centre
  • A 15-minute drive from Beaulieu; 20 from Exbury Gardens
  • Climbing wall and archery on site; 10 minutes' walk from a station

Forest rangers and active champs – here's a tried and tested site for you. New Forest locals and visitors have got up to all manner of open-air action at Tile Barn Outdoor Centre since it opened in the early 1970s. Set on the edge of the peaceful village of Brockenhurst, the site is a fab launchpad for those looking to get out and about in the New Forest National Park.

This spacious 14-acre site has well-maintained facilities like loos, hot showers and a washing-up area, all of which can be reached via an accessible and well-lit path. There’s also a secure entrance gate with a key code, meaning you can relax and play in these green surrounds with extra peace of mind.

On top of all that, there's a winning line-up of adventurous activities here, with climbing and archery often available – drop by for a chat with the friendly folk at reception to check what's on offer during your stay.

The site is an easy 15-minute stroll from Brockenhurst village centre; the village doesn't have a cattle grid, so it's the kind of place where you may well see donkeys and cows wandering around. Watch them take a dip at the ford while you head to the supermarket to stock up, or treat yourself to a sticky bun from the bakery. A railway station with services to Lymington, Bournemouth, Southampton and London is a 10-minute walk away from base.

    A great stay in the pods which were very clean and perfect for a couple of nights stay with the family. Nice clean facilities and hot showers so perfect to warm up on a cold morning. Well worth a visit with it being 10/15 min walk to Brockenhurst too.

    Good size pitches and location is very good for walking and cycling out from the site. Very clean shower and pot washing areas. Friendly staff. Activities on site for kids; loved climbing wall.

    Disliked: 

    Some booked pitches with clear intention of forming large groups and partying; could be better managed, especially as it is a family orientated site.

Local attractions

Most folk visiting this spot will find a fair few things to do on site, but when you do decide to venture off you'll be out in the gorgeous open forest in no time. For riverside rambles, pack a picnic and head for the path from Beaulieu to Buckler's Hard (15 minutes' drive), a gentle stroll through varied New Forest countryside that joins up these two stonkingly scenic settings.

After watching waders from riverside bird hides or heading out on a boat cruise from Buckler's Hard pier, make tracks back to Beaulieu and check out the National Motor Museum and its splendid cars and motorcycles. This place is more than just a collection of auto memorabilia (although there's plenty here if that's your thing) – visitors can also ride a monorail, traipse through the ruins of Beaulieu Abbey or take tours around plush Palace House.

Also about are Hurst Castle Spit (20 minutes), a striking seaside spot with a Napoleonic fortress at the end, and Exbury Gardens (20 minutes), an exquisite 200-acre woodland that you can take in on foot or from a nifty narrow-gauge railway.

Must see

  • Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway (6.7 kilometres)
  • Beaulieu National Motor Museum (8.1 kilometres)
  • Fort Victoria Country Park (12.1 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Newtown Old Town Hall (15.8 kilometres)
