Welcome to Tom’s Field 2020- Summer weekend camping in the New Forest
In light of Global events effecting us all (Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)).* OPENING DATES *
We have now decided to do 3 night min bookings as of 10th July that is a Friday to Monday. You can make you’re stay shorter but we will charge for the 3rd nights. There are several reasons for doing this. We have obviously lost a large amount of booking potential earlier on this year. There will be less pitches on the Campsite and more costs with a larger work load in order to operate in a Covid Safe way. We are getting extra toilets and more cleaning of all facilities.Allocated shower times for pitches the block will be unisex and you will have exculsive use for 15 mins morning and evening if required. We also have numerous water points so bring a washing bowl might be a help.
There will be sanitizer gel at water points and toilets
Please read careful and understand that we might have to add other changes as we go. Our main cause for concern is with families or friends wanting to camp together we will still socially distance you and ask that you do not exceed whatever numbers given by the Government as acceptable. This might seem difficult we are just doing our best to make it safe for everyone.
There will be no Camp Shop as this relieves the pressure on volunteers and bakers over this time, we might be able to do orders .We of course will miss them hugely and promise they will be back next year. Our caterers are keen to visit and we look forward to seeing either The Happy Fryers or Pizza Pig depending on the weekend. I will post the days they will come.
There will be access to freezing blocks and charging phones etc but this will be done by us at allocated times in the barn morning and evening for 1.5 hours . Probably 8.30am-10am and 4.30pm-6pm. There will be no use of communal areas by campers.
On the plus side there will be plenty of room to play spread out and have fun so not all bad.
Finally if you or a member of you’re group or family become ill while staying at Toms Field , we ask you leave immediately and notify us what has happened, if you cannot leave you will have to inform us of this also so we can assist.
we are very much looking forward to welcoming all our returning guests (not old!) and new alike and intrigued to see how it all feels . Tina and Tom XX sometimes Austin and almost always the spaniels Holly and Prudence
Tom’s Field commands a stunning location close to the village of Godshill, 3 miles from the town of Fordingbridge and is open for weekends only throughout the summer months. Please check our dates here. Godshill is a quiet village on the fringes of the New Forest where ponies, donkey’s and cattle all wander freely. We boast direct access and fantastic views. Footpaths and cycle routes are literally on our door step.
The Fighting Cocks pub is only a scenic 15 minute walk.
With just over 50 pitches the main field offers large perimeter pitches for families and small groups. Our copse area is exclusively for couples which offer smaller pitches and a quieter retreat. Dogs are welcome on Tom’s Field, but we do expect them to be well behaved and the owners to clean up after them. We welcome guests with tents and camper vans only, sorry no caravans or electric hook up.
We are a small, quiet, family orientated site and do not allow large loud groups to stay. In order for our guest to enjoy the beautiful peaceful surroundings we have a no noise after 11.30 pm policy, and no music at any time.
Tom’s Field has a permanent toilet and shower block. Both the ladies and gents have 2 showers, proper flushing toilets and on the outside of the block there are two hot water washing up sinks with another hot water washing up area by reception. Drinking water taps are scattered around the site. We also offer ice pack freezing at reception and phone charging all free of charge. We hire fire pits and sell small logs, kindling and British made charcoal. Each morning a small community run shop, from the village of Woodgreen, visits Tom’s Field bring essentials including freshly baked bread and milk.
Back by popular demand on Saturday nights (Sunday’s too on Bank Holiday) are the Stone Fired Pizza’s or Fish & Chip Van. See news for more details on which option is available on each weekend.
