Rushcroft Farm

from £13.00 Family + unit
Select Section


This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Station Approach, Sway, Hampshire SO41 6BA tucked behind the village in the heart of the New Forest. Only a five minute walk to Sway village with local pubs, shops and train station. With over 90,000 acres of woodland and heath, free roaming horses and glorious varied scenery around Sway the site is an ideal base for walking, cycling and riding. Beautiful beaches and the quay at Lymington are only a short drive away. We are a family run farm site with a small herd of rare breed pedigree Saddleback pigs, cattle and English goats. We produce our own meat these and eggs from our free range chickens. This produce is available to our visitors. Guests are welcome to bring their dogs and horses by arrangement. The beautiful gently sloping site is well equipped with electric points, chemical disposal point, dish washing area, and a dog walking track. There are toilets, hot showers and washbasins available. We have one and two bedroom cottages on the farm for those who prefer a little more luxury during their stay.

Small but noisy site with mostly clean but somehow outdated facilities.

This review is for Rushcroft Farm

Small but noisy site with mostly clean but somehow outdated facilities. We booked 3 nights with a caravan but left after 2 and I am a little bit disappointed by all those 5 star reviews. Have yo ever been to other places? The site is in fact noisy because of the train tracks that practically go through your caravan and are operated throughout the night. Maybe we were unlucky with our fellow campers but generally cars shouldn't be allowed to drive around until midnight. Same for loud music etc. The access is quite tricky when you meet with someone arrving/leaving as there is no space to evade for a pretty long distance. The facilities are somehow clean - yes, but look shabby and are weirdly arranged. Unisex toilets with dish washing facilities right next to them. I don't like to hear certain noises and smell certain stuff when washing my things, but maybe that's just me. You can wash your hands but nothing to dry them of off. Hughly disappointed, left after 2 nights in order to get some sleep and I would never go back there.

Nice little site.

This review is for Rushcroft Farm

Nice little site. Now lets consider previous reviews! Yes the access is a bit tight but I got a 6 metre motorhome in just fine. Yes there is a railway close by but it's not exactly noisy. Yes you may not see the owners but the board showing you where to pitch works well. Yes the showers/loos are basic but they're clean and the water is hot. Yes the site is on a slight slope but nothing that can't be sorted with ramps or steadies. Yes your sat nav will take you to the wrong entrance but the directions in the book are right. Think positive folks - this is a nice site in a good location for both the New Forest and the coast and it is open all year when lots of the bigger sites nearby close at the end of September. I'd certainly go again.
