Carron Camping and Caravanning: Gravel track leading to the pitches

General

  • 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 adults-only 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.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 17 or over.

    We loved everything about this site. It was our first time using our caravan and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect site. Beautiful surroundings, so peaceful and the horses were a great hit with our children. Facilities were great. Host was very friendly and helpful.

    Shower was a bit tricky to get to work properly , needed to be on eco setting to get constant warm water. On hot setting it alternated between hot for a few seconds then freezing cold.

    Stayed for one night as a nearby camping experience with a 9 and 4 year old. A small, pleasant campsite where the host is available and friendly. Affordable compared to some other sites in the New Forest. Saw a deer upon arrival in the open field across from the pitching site - a delight for our animal obsessed youngster! When it is busy, it would pay to get there early afternoon, especially if you have a larger tent to set up so you feel happy in your allocation. Despite sharing the pitch site with four other campers, there was a reasonable sense of privacy. The toilet and shower block is at the top of the drive, not far; and was clean and modern.
    The local pub was easy to walk to in minutes, friendly and had a lovely dog - but do research the pub and alongside it, the restaurant's (Bistro), opening hours and book ahead for meals if you intend to rely on these to eat. You cannot use BBQs on the campsite due to the New Forest guidelines around fire hazards unless you have one of the shingled areas (reserved I believe for camping vans).
    The boys and I did the short walk following the road opposite the pub to reach the New Forest trails and pottered for a bit - saw some ponies, farm animals which was enjoyable (as someone who knows the New Forest well, I feel comfortable dawdling...do research it if you don't). I believe one of these trails loop back round, but you would want to know where you are going as there are several trails and even a local we passed said it pays to have an online map or plan.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike, just be prepared that payment needs to be in cash, not card, and that you cannot use BBQs or campfires on the grass. Speak to the host if you need clarification around this.
    Just be mindful of children walking up to the toilets via the driveway; with cars potentially coming and going at the top of the driveway.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Paultons Family Theme Park (4.1 miles)
  • Breamore House (6.3 miles)
  • Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway (6.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Mottisfont (7.5 miles)
