From Verwood follow signs to the Heavy Horse Park. After passing the park on your left, take the sandy track on the right off the steep left hand bend. Follow the track to the end, bearing right at the fork and you will find Hillside Campsite on your left.
We are a friendly, family owned site offering 2 permanent glamping areas exclusively for Hen Weekends. Peacefully nestling into the Ringwood Forest, on the edge of the New Forest we are the perfect get-away for a relaxed celebration.
Hillside provides a peaceful base from which you can enjoy everything Dorset, Hampshire and the New Forest have to offer or simply relax and escape the hurly burly in our forest hideaway. During the summer, Bluetits nest in our shower block and the Buzzards soar overhead while Swallows swoop across the site hunting insects to feed their young in their nests in our stables. If you’re quiet, you might catch a deer wandering through or a fox meandering about at night. Barn owls and Little Owls talk to each other in the evenings and Woodpeckers, Cuckoos and Nightjars can all be heard and spotted in and around the campsite.
We are surrounded by Oak trees which separate us from Ringwood Forest – a 300 acre Forestry Commission woodland which provides endless walking or cycling from right outside the gate and leads directly into Moors Valley Country Park. There is off road walking or cycling directly in to Verwood from the campsite where you will find pubs, shops and restaurants.
The market town of Ringwood is a short car journey away and the beaches and shops of Bournemouth are an easy 30 minute drive south.
We are close to The New Forest Water Park and Bournemouth nightlife while providing a peaceful base for you to enjoy your weekend.
We are a small family run site with 2 permanent glamping areas exclusively for Hen Weekends and plenty of open space.
Ideal base for Hen Parties to enjoy daytime adventure activities and the nightlife of Bournemouth
