Simple tent camping in the farming village of Damerham with fine views and easy access to the New Forest National Park
Despite being a new site, Jubilee Camping – located a mere 10 minutes from the New Forest National Park – has taken old-fashioned, traditional camping principles to heart and applied them to perfection. The site's owners, Alison and Dave, understand that campers want to let their kids roam around making dens and getting muddy. They understand the importance of a crackling campfire. And they understand that today’s campers don’t want to share these moments with big motorhome monsters and rows of caravans. It’s no surprise then, that we think this killer combination of space, campfires, and a tents-only rule, makes Jubilee prime camping territory. Consisting of little more than a four-acre field, the camping area – with 60 generously sized, 10 metre-squared pitches – is firstly, fantastically spacious. Due to its impressive size, the flat field never feels overloaded and there's always plenty of space for family fun and ball games. Surrounded by trees and with countryside views, there's a gravel track along one side of the field for easy access and a fence along the other, with livestock nuzzling along its base as they graze the longer grass that grows there. In fact, the land was previously a Hampshire dairy farm but is now occupied by a mixture of beef cattle and recreational horses. Washing facilities – housed in bespoke wooden-clad units built on skids – are impeccably clean and simple, but that's all part of the charm of Jubilee; a real throwback to the halcyon days of old-school, unfussy camping. Simple extras include washing up sinks and a well-pressured water supply to the camping field, but there's no electricity and mobile signal is limited – although it can normally be found somewhere in the field. With a wealth of things to do within easy driving distance – notably the New Forest's web of walking and car-free cycling trails – plus, Jubilee's humble and easy-going atmosphere, this is one of the best camping options in the region for traditional campers. Pity it's only open for 28 days in the summer...

Relaxing, spacious family camping
If you’re looking for a relaxed camping break with plenty of space, good simple facilities, and beautiful views then this place is for you. Alison and the team are friendly and welcoming and they keep the showers/toilet block/wash-up impeccably clean. Stayed for 4 days in the summer holidays and still plenty of room. Kids enjoyed making swings and hammocks in the wooded copse. Close to Fordingbridge for a dip in the river to cool off. Half an hour from Moors Valley and other attractions. Great site - thank you for having us!

As first time rookie campers with a 2 year old, Jubilee Campsite was the perfect short break away from London. The site was spacious with plenty of room between pitches and panoramic views of rolling hills and farms. The campsite kitchen and bar offered woodfired pizzas in the evening and cooked breakfasts in the morning. The centre of the campsite was perfect for energetic, roaming toddlers with hay bales to climb on and goats and horses to watch. Our daughter loved visiting the piglets and feeding the calves milk in the morning and early evening. Amenities were clean and well stocked, and attentive staff kept us topped up with wood for our campfire. The booking team were very accommodating to my last minute changes and offered helpful advice regarding the local sites and activities. Jubilee is the perfect location to explore the New Forest from too. It's safe to say we absolutely loved our stay and we will be back with more rookie camper friends in tow!

Would definitely recommend. We camped here on what must be peak season bank holiday weekend, arrived late Friday and still felt like we had plenty of space for our six tented group. The showers and toilets were really well cleaned at the start of each day, good natured queuing for the wash up at busy times. Very helpful and friendly set up. Peaceful at night and cheerful by day. Good walks on footpaths through fields and woods.

I love jubilee campsite, I have been coming for 4 years and every year it gets better. The family who run the campsite are friendly and very helpful. The pitches are a good size. The facilities are basic but they are every thing you need clean showers and toilets which are regularly cleaned. The site is not over crowded due to covid and they have a van for breakfast, hot drinks, dinner. I loved the jurk chicken and pizza's. I love the little bar on site and the barman did rum tasting which was very informative. There is a lovely pub in the village with good food and we took the kids to the Heavy Horse centre which is 10 mins away which they loved. We also went kayaking on the river in Fordingbridge were there is a great park with paddling poole.

Stayed bank holiday; mixed group; adults kids from 5 to 14. Loved the rustic feel; bar, haystacks for kids to play on, feeding of goats and calves a real highlight. Lots of spaces between pitches. Hot food and drinks available for brekkie and supper, with card machine. Defo go back.

We spent two nights at Jubilee camping over the bank holiday weekend and had a fabulously relaxing time. Despite being fully booked, there was plenty of room. We camped in the top field, with great views, and had an easy weekend with a delicious wood fired pizza on site on Saturday night and an excellent Sunday dinner at the Compasses which is only a short walk away. The pop up bar was also very welcome, especially the pint of Pimms. Toilets and showers are basic but more than adequate, lots of anti bac and soap available and well ventilated. Also loved the piglets! It’s a really good, family oriented site, but suitable for anyone who likes a relaxed and well organised traditional style camp site with some very welcome and well cooked catering extras. We look forward to visiting again.
From the host
Jubilee Camping offers a 25-acre campsite, including two Wild Woodland camping areas for exclusive Family group hire (no adult-only groups), each with their own focal firepit. It's located on the edge of the New Forest in the farming village of Damerham, with easy access to beautiful country walks, historic visitor attractions, fine dining and family days out.
Nearby attractions
Cycling is the best way of experiencing the surrounding countryside; be it the New Forest or Cranborne Chase – both are within easy pedalling distance. You could even cycle to the Sixpenny micro-brewery in Cranborne (01725 762006), and enjoy one of their award-winning real ales in the Tap Room. Cranborne Village (3 miles) is the hub of the Cranborne Estate and well worth a visit. Teeming with history, the village boasts the beautiful Manor House, built in the 12th Century as a hunting lodge for King John. As it’s a private residence for Viscount Cranborne (the eldest Son of the 7th Marquess of Salisbury), the Manor House isn’t open to the public, however the beautiful Manor Gardens are open one day a week during the Summer (opening times, and other information can be found here). There's a couple of World Heritage sites within easy reach: The Jurassic Coast is around an hour away by road, and Stonehenge is 40 minutes. It’s around 20 minutes to Salisbury and 30 minutes to Bournemouth, so, whether you want to go shopping, head to the beach, or catch a theatre production, you’re well catered for.
Food and drink
Go for lunch at Cranborne Garden Centre (01725 517248) or The Compasses Inn (01725 518231) is only a few minutes walk from the campsite. If you want an alternative to The Compasses Inn for dinner, La Fosse (01725 517604) can also be found in Cranborne; an intimate fine dining restaurant run by Dorset Chef of the Year Mark Hartstone and his Wife Emmanuelle. Also, there’s the Inn at Cranborne , or a great alternative for an evening meal is the Railway Hotel at Fordingbridge just 5 minutes' drive away. There is a village shop and Post Office in neighbouring Sandleheath stocking all your essentials,  plus The Gourmet Grocer in Fordingbridge, the nearest Town, stocking not only wonderful fruit and veg, but a whole host of superb local deli products, including real ales, artisan breads and handmade cheeses. A great place to find foodie gifts too. On site we have an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven offering superb handmade pizzas with a variety of toppings, as well as other hot food options most weekends from Thursday to Sunday evenings (please enquire to confirm), and also hot breakfast rolls, teas/coffees etc most weekend mornings.
