Read the safety information below for a few things to be aware of before your stay. For information on the rules you can expect to be in place when you camp with us click here.
Common Campsite Hazards
* Not all of our campsites are well lit at night due to rural locations. We recommend taking a torch to use once the sun goes down.
* Children should be supervised at all times to avoid accidents. Some campsites are in a close proximity to deep bodies of water.
* Cars, and motorhomes may be moving around the campsite. Please look out for reversing caravans and motorhomes and stay alert at all times.
* Ticks, particularly during the spring and summer months are something to be aware of. One of the best ways to avoid being bitten is to use insect repellent.
* Ensure everyone in your group knows what to do if there is a fire and understands the campsite-specific procedures.
* Sun safety is paramount on campsites, remember to bring appropriate protection from the suns harmful rays.
Ponies and Wild Animals
The land surrounding our campsite is home to lots of wildlife species and many horses. While these animals are generally gentle, we ask that you keep a safe distance as these animals can be extremely protective, particularly of their offspring. Read our safety guide for New Forest Ponies.
* Do not feed, approach or pet any animals
* Be aware that food, rustling sounds and even car doors opening may attract the attention of a pony.
* Please take all of your litter home or place it in one of the pony-proof litter bins available at select sites.
* If you’ve brought your four-legged friend on holiday with you, please keep them on a lead when other animals are around.
Carbon Monoxide (BBQ)
Carbon monoxide (CO) is produced when a fuel such as charcoal, gas or petrol burns incompletely. This could be because an appliance isn’t working properly or might simply happen as part of its normal function. Barbecues, for example, produce carbon monoxide even when they are working well. To avoid putting yourself at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, please read the advice below.
* Never take a barbecue into a tent or motorhome, even if you consider it to be cool after use.
* Never use a fuel-burning appliance to heat your tent or awning.
* Always have any gas appliances in a caravan or motorhome serviced regularly.
* Consider using a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm and learn the warning signs of poisoning to look out for.
