Alan Rogers Review
Victoria, Martin and Family and their team of rangers offer a very warm welcome, and you can see this site is not just a family business but a passion. Back of Beyond is a peaceful 30 acre site located within easy reach of Bournemouth, The South Coast and The New Forest. Consisting of 142 pitches in total 89 with electricity and 20 hardstanding, 45 tent pitches and 9 glamping/yurt/pods. There is an 18 acre wood where dogs can run free, dogs are very welcome and even have their own shower wash. A wildlife lake with Special Scientific Interest status area (SSI) and a pétanque pitch. The shop is licensed, very well stocked with fresh local produce and sells camping/calor gas. Adjoining this is a covered licensed bar, social area and the main reception.
The outdoor bar on site is open three nights a week in season until 8.00p.m, serves a selection of local beers, gin and wine and is a great central meeting place. Guests can collect one of the fire pits and a bottle of wine from the well stocked licensed shop and return to the accommodation to relax. There is the use of the indoor swimming pool on the site next door for a small fee by prior arrangement. Also available is a 20% food discount at the local pub. Local pizza & paella food vans visit the site and are very popular, as are the local tasting nights hosted by the nearby distilleries, wineries and brewery.
A central sanitary block serves the whole site which is modern and very clean, with facilities for the disabled incorporated, a well equipped laundry room and dishwashing facitlities. A separate dog wash is next to this block. All rented accommodation is modern, clean and of a high standard. Wi-Fi on the site is good and free. Phone charging for campers, with non electric is available for a small fee. Fresh baked bread and croissants are available by pre-order the day before. Honey is also available from the site’s own bee hives.
