“Great campsite with immaculate toilets and showers. The location is very convenient for the beach, Moors Valley Country Park and the New Forest. Gundrys Farm is not flashy – it just does all the important things really well. It is one of the best and cleanest camp sites I have ever stayed at. Highly recommended.”

“Lovely campsite, with very friendly and helpful staff. It had been very wet just before our stay, and they were very helpful when our Motorcaravan got bogged down. The site has several fields, with two toilet blocks and one shower block. These are kept immaculately clean. The free Wi-Fi is the most reliable I have ever used in the Motorcaravan.”
