The Longbeech Caravan Park and Campsite is nestled in a beautiful New Forest woodland setting. If you love wildlife and songbirds you'll certainly enjoy this area.
Once again this area relies on its WW2 Airfield history to provide paths through the woodland and enclosures. It was once part of the Stoney Cross airfield. We've visited the lady in this photo and been amazed by the number and variety of birds she has coming to the feeders she and her husband have put up.
A wonderful sight to see.
Longbeech Caravan and Campsite in the New Forest
If you're looking for a peaceful and tranquil New Forest caravan and campsite then this is a lovely one to choose. Provided you bring enough food you wont need to leave it as each day you can wander further afield or just relax in your own space. In low season it is more peaceful with more space around your pitch if you ask the warden to give you a more private area if possible.
If you want to find out more about the New Forest last year Ocknell wardens had a fantastic information tent with lots to discover but until the season starts again I don't know yet if this will be available.
There are lots of New Forest donkeys in this area and also an ice cream van up the road a bit!
If you want to get a feel of what it is like to stay at Longbeech campsite you can easily park up (there are a couple of little car pull ins before the entrance barrier in season. If you want to view when the season is over you can still use these places or one of the nearby car parks.
The site has a concrete track running through the middle which means you can walk in all weathers and then spread out and inspect where the pitches are. It is very much a woodland caravan and camping pitch and so you will be spoilt for choice off peak season. Every time we've visited Longbeech caravan park and campsite either in season or on a bright winters day we've seen lots of deer about so you should be lucky too. The number of wild birds coming down to feed is also fantastic. You could always bring a few little bird feeders to hang up during your stay.
