Alan Rogers Review

Ocknell Camping in the Forest site is a beautiful site, brimming with character, free-roaming New Forest ponies, history and charm. Ocknell combines tranquil spots set amongst the trees and ferns with spacious, open pitches, all bounded by the forest's trees. Paths take off in all directions, weaving through the site and in and out of the trees, creating an almost secret garden feel to the site. The site is perfect for children to play and explore, or as a base for taking off into the forest, while the views provided at any one spot are incredible and instantly warm the soul. This is a limited facility site, there are toilets but no showers. The site has 280 grass & hardstanding pitches some of which are seasonal.

Ocknell is a peaceful place offering a restful stay. The site is in the northern half of the New Forest, around a 20-minute drive from Lyndhurst, the area's capital. A traditional English village, Lyndhurst's appeal is its many independent shops, cafes and pubs. Like all New Forest sites, Ocknell offers direct access to the beautiful heathland and forest walks afforded by a stay in these ancient woodlands straight from your pitch


Please note, site has toilets but no electricity or showers. Drinking water taps. Chemical toilet point. Some accessible facilities. Dish washing area. Pets allowed. Battery charging.
