New Milton

We camp at Ballard School in New Milton, which is just south of the New Forest and also not far from the coast.
The field here is not accessible during the winter months, so all units will have to use hard standing pitches on the visitors car park.
The site opens at 2pm on Friday, and closes on Monday. The stewards for the weekend are Mel and Paul, who can be contacted via the Wessex mobile phone on 07939 592 200.
