Family-friendly, traditional New Forest camping with a pub next door and footpaths leading directly from the gateway

The New Forest may be 150 square miles in size but the essential characteristics are almost perfectly parcelled up in the immediate surroundings of Harry’s Field. There’s an appropriately named old English pub – The Foresters Arms – next door, footpaths and bridleways leading immediately from the end of the lane and wild ponies grazing in the heathland across the track. If you want to enjoy all the New Forest has to offer without spending your holiday hopping in the car, Harry’s Field is certainly a top choice.

The campsite has all the basics covered. The field is flat and well drained, there are showers, sinks and toilets at one end and pitches are generously sized. There’s also a great buzz about the place. The meadow affords room for up to 60 pitches, with two set aside for pre-pitched bell tents, and, though they don’t like big groups or late night noisiness, the campsite still has a thoroughly sociable, family feel. Even the pub has a tendency to captivate every age group – while parents are having a taste of the local ales, kids will fall in love with the donkeys who graze an apron of grass by the front gate.

“We want to run Harry’s Field as the sort of place we would love to camp ourselves”, owner Vivien explains. The Sheriff family grew up on a staple of summer camping holidays and it’s clear their approach to the site draws on classic camping memories: campfires are allowed, dogs are welcome and they’ll happily provide guests with an annotated map outlining the best walks and bike-rides in the area – a little local insight goes a long way. There are no frills, bells or whistles and they don’t have plans to fill the place with new, manmade facilities either. If it’s the sort of place they’d camp themselves then, we’re happy to say, we’d certainly go camping with them.

The Owner Says

Harry’s field is a small campsite run by campers for campers. We’ve created a tranquil retreat in one of the most serene corners of the New Forest with everything we’d expect to see on our perfect pitch.
Combine years of experience, decades of enthusiasm and almost half a century of New Forest camping heritage and you get Harry’s Field, a perfectly formed campsite in one of the New Forest’s most striking hamlet’s.
We love it here, in fact, for three generations our family have lived right next door. Combine years of experience, decades of enthusiasm and almost half a century of New Forest camping heritage and you get Harry’s Field, a perfectly formed campsite in one of the New Forest’s most striking hamlet’s.
 Escapism and considerate New Forest camping underpins our philosophy at Harry’s Field, so we don’t welcome large groups – sorry to be party poopers. With no busy roads, just quiet country lanes, the only thing that will keep you awake at night will be the hoot of owls – and maybe a snoring husband, but I’m afraid we can’t do much about that!
There are cycle trails and numerous walking routes right from the campsite so you can truly explore the best of the New Forest right from the gate.
Harrys Field has a very well stocked little shop and we pride ourselves on selling local milk, cakes , bread and meat from the local butcher (which our guests rave about)
