Longbeech Caravan Park & Campsite
The Longbeech Caravan Park and Campsite is found on the eastern edge of Stoney Cross, an area that was a wartime airfield during the Second World War – one of 12 such airfields in the New Forest during that period.
The campsite is tucked away within the Ancient and Ornamental Woodland of Long Beech Inclosure, and makes for a perfect New Forest setting.
Running through the site is a small network of narrow concrete roads, a reminder of the area’s wartime history. Sadly the large green water tower that served the airfield was recently dismantled, but there are other remnants of airfield life that still survive here and there.
There are nice open grassy pitches throughout the campsite, as well as sheltered ones amongst the many tall beech trees. The site, however, is limited in facilities with no toilets, showers or hot water, although there are toilets at neighbouring Ocknell campsite.
Campsite facilities: 200 pitches (approx.), seasonal pitches available, dogs welcome.
The site is open 29th March until 1st October.
