Our cosy shepherds hut and romantic gypsy caravan are an ideal place for a couple or a family (children age 4-10) to stay for a few nights whilst they explore the New Forest, nearby country parks and local beaches. As you sit outside by the chiminea or fire pit toasting marshmallows (supplied), looking out over a field where deer and rabbits can often be seen, it is hard to imagine you are only a short distance from the friendly market town of Ringwood.

Both the gypsy caravan and shepherds hut are lit by fairy lights and have a wood burner inside. There is also a beautiful octagonal thatched summer house, which overlooks the pond, with a mini fridge, tea / coffee making facilities, games and llama wool ponchos to borrow. Many guests use this decking area in the morning as well to enjoy their breakfast hamper (optional extra) with warm bread rolls, muffins, a selection of cereals, a fruit plate, juice and milk.

We also have a very colourful compost toilet (with fairy lights too!). Alternatively, guests might prefer to walk up towards the house to find a more traditional toilet or to take a shower.

Fernwood Glamping is a quiet location for couples or families with up to 2 children wanting to unwind and relax in our rural setting. For this reason, we ask that music is not played outside, guests are quiet by 10pm and pup tents are not allowed. Our hut and van are non- smoking areas please! It will be a memorable place to stay with your children but we do ask you to also think carefully about fellow guests as well as safety aspects (hot wood burner, unfenced pond and high deer hide) before booking. We regret, no dogs (we love them but have our own as well as lots of other animals! You are welcome to come and meet our chickens, rabbits and tortoise and may see Austin, our cat, in the garden.)

Having lived in Ringwood for over 25 years and brought up our three children here, we are more than happy to help with ideas of places to visit or ideas for walking or cycling. Whether you want to explore the forest or are looking for a more organised day out, there is certainly plenty to do around here. Popular with families is Peppa Pig World at Paulton's Park, the play trail at Moors Valley Country Park or a visit to one of our local beaches (such as Southbourne, Hengistbury Head / Mudeford Quay). For teens or the young at heart, we have The New Forest Water Park or Go Ape at Moors Valley. The list is endlesss with The New Forest Wildlife Park, The Raptor and Reptile Centre, Beaulieu Motor Museum. Some visitors wil also go to Marwell Zoo, Monkey World or Brownsea Island.

You will be spoilt for choice with places to eat, from restaurants and coffee shops in the town to country pubs and tea rooms in the New Forest villages. If you want to relax in Fernwood's garden, just at the bottom of the hill is a Tesco Local, Poulner Fish and Chips, an off licence and a bakery that does pizza takeaway on Friday and Saturday night.
