If you’re hunting that harmonious feeling, then come to Dot’s. Pleasant Hampshire countryside matched with a helpful host.

Hampshire’s countryside is far from lacking in the scenic stakes: from the rolling cornfields of its northerly borders to the magical woods and wild heathland of the New Forest, campers will find endless valleys and meadows unpopulated by a single human, except for the occasional farmer harvesting his crops. It’s in these countryside surroundings that Breamore resides; a genteel English village which would make the ideal location for a Miss Marple novel. But it’s also home to a wonderfully peaceful place to pitch your tent: Dot’s Camping.

It's hard to put a finger on what makes this pop-up campsite special. Maybe it's the fresh Hampshire air abuzz with swirling butterflies, or perhaps the odd ‘oink’ from Squeak, Dot’s resident pig – no prizes for guessing how she got the name – who cheerfully heralds your arrival. Whatever does it for you, there's something here to love. There are some campsites you arrive at and immediately know what awaits will be amongst the most tranquil and care-free camping holidays you're ever likely to experience. Dot’s is one such campsite.

The camping field has flat, unmarked and generously-sized pitches, perfect for first-timers and families. It’s a lovely quiet site (so no music after dark), but some road noise can occasionally be heard if the wind’s blowing the wrong way. This is proper, traditional camping – so don’t expect heated toilet blocks and hairdryers. Facilities are simply; spotlessly clean flushing toilets, a pair of gas-powered showers (with plenty of pressure) and a lovely shelter with a washing up sink, freezer for ice blocks and plenty of tourist information.

And come morning there’s loads to do, be it walking or cycling the New Forest’s endless trails, or sampling local ales in pubs with old-world charm. Pooped parents looking for activities to wear out their brood have plenty of choice, both on and off site. Paulton’s Park and Peppa Pig World are fun days out, whilst most little uns' won’t want to leave the campsites Pygmy goats and Kune Kune pigs, in the field next door. With this abundance of activities and fresh country air its no wonder everyone sleeps soundly at Dot’s. It’s even less of a surprise that campers keep coming back.

Getting There

From Salibury: head south on the A338. Pass through the village of Downton and Breamore is the next village. On entering Breamore, go past the ‘Bat & Ball’ pub on the left and then turn left, signposted Woodgreen. Head along the road (over the old railway bridge and just past the New Forest National Park sign) and as the road bends slightly you will find Dot’s Camping on the right hand side. The drive is hard to see so take care.

Salisbury Railway Station and Bus Station are 10 miles up the road.
