The farm is located a mile from Lyndhurst which was very convenient as we could walk it. The field was flat and grassy so comfortable. The only facilities were two toilets with a basin (with hot and cold water) housed in a metal container and a tap. I was disappointed because £7 pp/pn seemed a little expensive considering the lack... More

A pleasant, back-to-basics campsite in a nice location. The only facilities are two semi permanent toilets, a cold tap and a farm shop selling sausages, bacon etc. There are no electric hook ups. Camping field is mostly level, there are fire pits available, Lyndhurst is about 30 minutes walk through the woods (with a pub halfway 😀). As someone else... More

Pondhead is for those who want an authentic, chilled rural camping experience. It comrises of a fairly level enclosure of around 80x90 meters (there were 7 tents staying in high season). To 2 sides there are horses and to 1 side an enclosure of yard animals - pigs, geese chickens, the cockerell(s) start before dawn There is no rubbish, muck... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on first weekend in August (after being refused from another campsite because 2 others in our group were arriving after 8pm!) and had a lovely weekend on the campsite. It's a back-to-basics site with no showers and only 2 toilets, but these were adequate for what we needed. The owner was lovely, and told... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night, it is very close to Lyndhurst. The site was rustic, the toilet facilities were basic, and the only noise came from the animals....until.... a group of young persons camped up and had their fun. They were noisy and kept us awake. But hey that is just part of the camping experience... More

I love this campsite and have now been three times, so it it with trepidation that I share my love of Pondheas with others in case there is no space when I go back! It is a back to basics farm with a tap and two portaloos. The farmshop could do with some improvement but I have found that we... More

Stayed here on the bank holiday weekend as an introduction to camping. As we had left it rather late to book a plot we stumbled across this place as it was available. As previous reviews have stated this is back to basics! A tap by a trough and a portaloo is literally all the facilities on offer. We were too... More

Great location and wanted somewhere to camp that was quiet. It was not only great for camping but the sausages and steak were fantastic. Great food cooked on open fire was better than any restaurant.

Great campsite run by a friendly farmer. 2 fields a quite one and a family one. backs on to the woods for easy access to New Forest trails, and a 10 min cycle to Lyndhurst. No showers but has portaloo toilets, (can get a bit whiffy on bank holidays i its hot)
