Rowbury Farm Camping

4.7 (71 reviews)

Rowbury Farm Camping is a family-run campsite on a working farm in the heart of Hampshire. The site is very quiet with exceptionally large pitches separated by strips of wildflowers and has views over Danebury Iron-age hillfort. There really is something for everyone in the Test Valley, whether it's cycling, walking, paddling in rivers or visiting pretty village pubs.

The Site

Rowbury farm Camping is a family-run campsite on a working farm in the heart of Hampshire. We have great views of the surrounding downland including Danebury hillfort. We aim to create a tranquil laid-back ambiance with 45 big pitches on 11 acres, separated by swathes of wildflowers. There are plenty of great places to walk and cycle and we are close to some beautiful Test Valley villages.


We have a block of toilets and showers in purpose-built units, which are of good quality and provided with hot water. The men’s block is a shared facility with 2 showers, 2 toilets and some urinals. We have a large family unit with a shower and toilet; this has plenty of space for joint use with children. For the ladies there are two single-occupancy shower-toilet units and a separate toilet. We have a washing up area with 2 large twin-basin stands. We do not have fridges or charging facilities on site, but we do have a freezer for recharging cold packs.

Walking and Cycling

Test valley is riddled with public footpaths, permissive bridleways, and way-marked routes. The Test Way can be as hilly or as flat as you like (here it runs along an old railway line) and the River Anton Way runs 10 miles from the Mayfly pub all the way into Andover. Just down the valley at Chilbolton you can explore the downland nature reserve at West Down or potter in Chilbolton Cow Common on the banks of the River Test. Stockbridge watermeadows is also great for an easy ramble with kids and dogs and there are plenty of places for an ice cream or a cuppa in Stockbridge.

The 246 National cycle route is within a few metres of our gate and we are close to the King Alfred’s Way Long Distance Cycling route. May cyclists use us as a stopping point on all sorts of long distance trips - Bristol to Singapore probably takes the biscuit.

Historic Test Valley

From the campsite you can see Danebury Hill Fort which, as well as being an amazing viewpoint, has had extensive archaeological excavation. You can peruse some of the findings at Andover’s Iron Age Museum. Mottisfont Abbey is a magnificent National Trust property about 10 miles away down the Test Valley and makes an excellent (not too challenging) cycle ride.

The Army Air Flying Corp Museum is close by at Wallop. It is packed with historic planes and flying related memorabilia and is definitely worth a visit.

If you fancy a stroll through medieval streets, do some shopping and enjoy a coffee then Salisbury and Winchester are within 30 minutes drive.

Rowbury Farm Campsite welcomes tents, trailer tents and small campervans (less than 5m length). We do not cater for caravans or motorhomes.

All our pitches are grass pitches. There is no hardstanding on the site and there are no hook-ups. Pitches on the site are numbered for convenience. They are allocated on a first come, first served basis and we cannot guarantee guests a particular pitch. It is almost always possible camp close to friends or relatives if that is desired.

Lovely site, good facilities

Bayliss, Rebekah - 03/06/2023


This is a lovely campsite, the pitches are large and well spaced out. The toilets and washing up facilities kept clean with nice hot water. We enjoyed the use of a fire pit too. Check in and comms very straight forward.

Great location - simple and sweet

Pitre, David - 02/06/2023


Local to us, great to get out into nature with local walks and places to visit like danebury fort. Facilities are basic but that doesn’t take away from the experience. Can’t wait for the next camp and hike trip.

Peaceful location to fully relax

English, Rachel - 02/06/2023


Clean site in a peaceful location. Every morning woke up to beautiful bird song. Field is well spaced out and pick your own pitch works well. Area doesn’t feel crowded with areas of wild flowers and grasses between pitches. Fire pits provided and firewood available to purchase. Toilet/shower block was clean and never felt too busy, even though it was bank holiday weekend. Owner was lovely and provided great information on dog walks in the area. No complaints at all and would love to return in the future.

Fabulous views in a lovely setting.

James, Jo - 18/05/2023


We love Rowbury Farm, we started coming last year, it’s only 35 mins down the road but feels like a million! The pitches are perfectly laid out with plenty of room in between. There’s a relaxed feel, with the the owner on hand if needed. The facilities are fairly basic but better than a lot I’ve been to and are cleaned regularly throughout the stay.We love walking and there are plenty of walks to choose from, you’ve also got Stockbridge 10 mins down the road to get supplies if necessary. Almost want to keep this one a secret but they deserve the business!

Singleton, Ben - 18/05/2023


A great site, the only negative is you can’t walk anywhere with small children due to roads.

Beautifully kept site

Chapman, Colin - 08/05/2023


Pretty faultless - large well kept pitches, immaculate facilities, excellent contact from owner. A very peaceful place with virtually no traffic or other noise. What more could you ask for. If I was to be picky, if windy conditions are forecast the site is pretty exposed. Definitely one to return to.

Lovely quiet campsite

Heath, Karin - 04/05/2023


This is a lovely spot, very spacious pitches with a nice view and camp fires. Very friendly welcome and clean facilities. The only thing missing for a 5 star is that there is no footpath to the nearest village which features two nice pubs. It's a 30 mins walk on a fairly quiet road or a short cycle or drive. We did not explore if there are nearby footpaths to other destinations so can't comment.
