Ready tents at the Roundhill New Forest campsite are cancelled for 2012. This is because previously, they were owned and supplied by Eurocamp. Late last year Eurocamp decided to pull completely out of the UK camping market. This has left the Forestry Commission and Camping in the Forest too little time to set up an alternative for 2012. I have left this information up for you as I hope 2013 will see this camping choice set up again, hopefully using the same facilities.
As well as ready tents at Roundhills campsite, Ready Tents and Safari Tents, for luxury camping were at Holmsley campsite in the New Forest. They have also been cancelled for 2012 at Holmsley.
You can still book to stay at Roundhill Campsite for your own tent or caravan pitch at Camping in the Forest.The whole site is still beautifully run but the wonderful Roundhill Information Centre which won the David Bellamy Gold award for 2011 unfortunately will not be on site for 2012. The managers of Roundhill are moving over to manage the Ocknell and Longbeech campsite . I've been able to find this out by making a few phonecalls and so may have more news on this later in the season.

Each tent included:
I tried the beds and they were very comfortable!
Each tent had a large living area and up to 3 separate sleeping compartments.
It had looked really comfortable, high quality and flexible accommodation. And......................
The New Forest ponies, at Roundhill, are just outside your door! How great an experience is that?
As you can see you got a barbecue and a pair of sunloungers.
When we were there last year there was a beautiful New Forest foal nearby.
The kitchen area was well stocked with plenty of cutlery, dishes etc.
The cool box was really useful as the tent gets pretty hot if you have to leave it with the sides zipped up.
Roundhills offers you a "green experience". You can arrive, park the car and not use it again!
