Is that St Leonard's Hospital?

Oakdene is more or less adjacent. I've never stayed there as it's local but drove by as there's a camping shop nearby and it looks nice.

Sandy balls campsite is highly recommended on here by all and sundry.

That is dear.

We stayed in a travelodge in the New Forest but that would not be accessible for public transport I think.
