If you’d like to try wild camping, but like the sound of some little luxuries on hand, Harry’s Meadow may be the compromise for you. Set in a flat, 50-acre wildflower meadow guarded by an avenue of ancient oak trees, the campsite is located in the grounds of a (private) manor house and has spectacular views across the Avon Valley.
As there are no allocated pitches, feel free to set up wherever you like – this is wild camping with bonuses. Harry’s Meadow has powerful hot showers and compost loos plus firepits for hire as well as seasoned wood to buy, but please do note that there is no electric hook-up.
Any other little luxuries? Well… yes. A choice of pop-up food trucks are on site daily, from a van serving barista coffee and fresh Danish pastries in the morning, to an ever-popular cocktail truck and a local brewery supplying organic ales. At the weekend, you also have a choice of punchy prawn bhuna or stone-baked pizza for evening meals.
As if all that’s not enough to keep you all fed and watered, you can stroll to the well-loved local pub just down the road in Woodgreen (25 minutes’ walk), for a warm welcome from the landlord. If you fancy venturing further out and about, speak to the friendly site staff, who can advise on your options.
To generate better results:

Although there is space for dogs and kids to run around safely on site, there’s also a big common surrounded by woods in Woodgreen (25 minutes’ walk), which is a popular spot for playing ball games and running wild. In fact, the whole area is great for walking and cycling, with many paths and tracks leading into the New Forest.
There are loads of swimming options for you to enjoy as well, from a day trip to the beach (Hengistbury Head is the nearest – 40 minutes’ drive) to a dip in the lakes at New Forest Water Park (15 minutes). If you fancy something a bit different, there’s also wild swimming on the River Avon a short walk from the site.
For special days out with the kids, Liberty’s Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre (20 minutes) offers flying displays and reptile houses, while families can Segway and journey on a narrow-gauge railway at Moors Valley Country Park and Forest (half an hour). And of course, the rides at Paultons Park Home of Peppa Pig World (25 minutes) keep kids happy for hours.
