An amazing wonderful place - opted for grass with no ehu. Pitch up where you like ! The deer wander around , ponies pass you by. Just a relaxing time with great cycle tracks all around
No facilities but if your self sufficient its no problem

Great location in the forest - our pitch was hardstanding under oak trees surrounded by ferns and bracken. Great access to cycleways - there is a disused railway line now cycleway/walking trail running through the site. Facilities are EHU, Elsan & grey disposal, water - no loos or showers. Quite expensive at £29pn (although it was high season). Really friendly helpful staff. Fabulous walks in all directions.

7.5m Motorhome 4 adults £34. Arrived at 6pm but they said they would leave a welcome pack if we were late and they were closed. Very friendly and helpfull lady at reception. level (ish) pitch at the bottom of end.
Surrounded by forest . Saw a few deer wondering around the site. Really nice place but a bit stiff for my taste. Im all for the , no noise after 10 etc but you could've heard a mouse fart after 8pm.
Turns out it was real value for money compared to other campsites in the area.
No toilets or showers was a bummer but there was Deer.

Wasnt sure what to expect from this campsite as we generally prefer to be in the thick of things but we were pleasantly surprised. Quiet and peaceful site with plenty of room around your pitch. Lovely walks from the site any way you go. Minimal facilities (ie. there is a reception area + waste disposal + fresh water areas + elec hookup but that is it. Deer walked through the campsite twice on our two night stay and it was magical to see them. Would definitely stay here again.

Yes there are no toilets or showers but as said by others this is truely a superb location. For walking the dog or cycling this is one of the best locations we have been to. Deer roaming through the site, all sorts of birds in the woodland and heaths. We walked to Sway cycled to Brockenhurst and most importantly walked straight from the site for miles. Very friendly helpful staff. Well done ????????

Beautiful site within the new forest £18.43 per night ,warm greeting from reception , asked what sort of pitch we wanted and just said I would like to see Deer , he pointed us to hardstanding with ehu in the blue area not far from reception. No showers or toilets so you have to be self sufficient . However there is fresh water and grey and chemical waste areas .Ponies came very close and a stag posed for a photo, the scenery peace and quiet is truly amazing will certainly return

A quiet, peaceful site in the new forest. Ponies wandering in surrounding roads and villages, we had a visit from a group of deer with enormous antlers 10 foot behind the van, very impressive. 30 minute walk to nice pub near Sway, turn left at cattle grid on road to Sway. 3.3 mile walk into Brockenhurst along old railway path, bit disappointed with village but a couple small supermarkets, cafes and a pub. A nice site for a relaxing couple of days no public transport to speak of.

Loved the spacious pitches. Nice walk into Sway and also across the moors opposite the site entrance. Friendly staff. No toilets or showers was not a problem as we were self sufficient in that area. Easy run to nearby Lymington, Mudeford quay. Great forest experience

Set in the New Forest, great for walking and biking. Ideal for dog owners with both forest and heath-land to explore. The hard standing pitches with electric are large though most would require leveling blocks. Discount available for CCC members.

Beautiful site nestled amongst the trees so a more natural feel to the pitch. No showers or toilets but does have electric hook up and water and a motorhome service point. No tv reception because of the trees. Lots of lovely walks and a signposted trail to Sway. An ideal location to pitch up for some exploring.

Setthorns is a real gem. Open all year round, it offers unrivalled opportunities for walking, both within the Set Thorns Enclosure, and further afield. A walk to Sway, the nearest village, will be rewarded by two great pubs, both serving food, and a range of small shops and a coffee shop.

The staff who look after you at Setthorns are also exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable about the forest and the area.

A wonderfully relaxing place to visit, but make sure you are fully self-sufficient - there are no services here, apart from the usual water, and waste disposal.

The setting is stunning and in an area of natural beauty. No toilet facilities so you have to have your own. Deers roam straight through the site too. Very much worth a visit.

Have visited many times and is a favourite New Forest site in the winter. Open all year and reasonably priced it has hookups but no other facilities. The pitches are mostly woodland with a few more open areas in the valley. The site is adjacent to the cycle network which runs through the centre and is an added bonus.
