We enjoyed the rally at Lymington this year https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/foru...-isle-of-wight-more-rally-august-2018.161595/ & had some wonderful feedback from Funsters & RVOC members
& there is so much more to see & do there so we are running this one again in 2019.
Lymington Seafood Festival https://www.lymingtonseafoodfestival.co.uk/ is free entry on both Saturday & Sunday in a park on the edge of the harbour. Both there & a short walk away in the town there is some great fresh seafood & other food & drink treats galore. The Festival has one main stage with local bands which creates a good atmosphere in a pleasant spot. On Saturday morning there is also the Charter Market which lines most of both sides of the high street as well as having all the shops, pubs & restaurants to visit or just have a coffee (& cake) or ice cream on the quay & watch the crabbing. You can even try crabbing yourselves as the shops nearby sell buckets, lines & bait.
Our rally field is well located with the ferry terminal to Yarmouth on the Isle Of Wight & the train (2 minute trip) across to Lymington town just a short walk away, a spa & café in the hotel next door, 9 hole golf course & crazy golf across the road, a pleasant longer walk up a country lane to a dog friendly pub which does a popular carvery on Sunday (group meal planned) & Monday, a bus stop across the road for New Forest Bus who have open top tour buses that go to Beaulieu Motor Museum, Sammy Miller Museum, Brockenhurst & Lyndhurst in the New Forest , Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway, New Forest Activities , New Forest Wildlife Park, Ringwood Brewery , New Forest Cider, Burley Fudge & Milford On Sea where you can paddle in the sea plus walk to Hurst Castle. The Bus can take a limited number of bikes & dogs too. There are some scenic walks mostly on footpaths & swimming in the open air sea water pool. Will add more detail about things to do & places to visit nearby (there’s a lot!) & in the area later.
It’s possible to walk (mostly footpath) from the rally field to the town but if it’s busy with traffic then more pleasant to take the short hop on the train. We hope to have a Bring & Buy Sale & many evening social gatherings (weather permitting) in the rally field but other than that it’s up to you to get out & about to make the most of your stay either by yourselves or team up with others or just relax in the field with the company of fellow Fun & RVOC members.
UPDATES:
Thanks to @Mr Chrysalis there is a coach tour on the Isle Of Wight too planned which was very popular last year - see here for more info. https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/lymington-2019-isle-of-wight-coach-trip.195126/ & to get your names on the list for a place. Please post on this thread if you don't have access to Fun & we will add your names on there.
Walhampton Arms Group Carvery Lunch is now planned for Sunday 11th August at 12.30pm https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/lymington-rally-2019-walhampton-arms-sunday-carvery.195811/ with main course for £11.95 but if we get over 40 Funsters / RVOC members there then they have kindly agreed to reduce that rate to £10
(y) It is a dog friendly pub.
If you would like to join us then please call the pub on 01590 673113 & let them know you are with "Motorhome Fun Group" when booking your table for 12.30pm so they allocate us tables so we can be sat together. It's a pleasant one mile walk up a country lane (Monument Lane) & we will set off from the rally field at 11.45am to walk at a leisurely pace but you are welcome to go earlier if you prefer or want to drive there.

Arrivals day is Friday 9 August from 11am-8pm - please note that you need to arrive on this day to come on this rally. Departure by 11am on Wednesday 14 August.
Cost is £53 total per motorhome (campervan, PVC, RV, Fifth Wheeler or caravan - we like them all
) for 5 nights for maximum of 2 adults - please contact us if you require more than this. £10 non-refundable deposit & your completed booking form are required to secure your place then the remaining £43 by 10 July 2019 so four weeks before the Rally - payment to be made by Paypal Friends & Family or bank transfer. Full details will be on the booking form.
Location is a large flat camping field behind Bamptons Farm, Lisle Court Road, Lymington SO41 5SH ( postcode is not exact please see here https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/50°45'32.2"N+1°31'23.8"W/@50.759015,-1.5225652,227m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d50.7589472!4d-1.5232664 )
Facilities are basic with three fresh water standpipes & an Elsan point with rinsing water supply - please use either no chemicals or eco friendly ones like Aqua Kem Green. We will ensure that enough space is kept clear around the water points to drive up for refilling but best to arrive with full water & empty waste tanks if you can.
Rubbish - there will be crates for all mixed recyclables & all other waste should be put in black bin bags in the trailer - disposal of these is included in Rally cost .
Access to the camping area from the road is good with a 16 foot gateway & no height restrictions so even ok for RVs !
Security - the farm entrance gate will be locked overnight from 10pm but we & our fellow Marshals will have access to a key for emergencies & everyone will have our mobile number to reach us throughout the rally. Pedestrian access possible at all times.
Dogs are welcome but must be on leads, in an enclosure or tethered in the rally field. There is a field next door where they can be walked.
Generators can be used but only for short periods when necessary during the day but please let us know on your booking form as you will be pitched away from any it might annoy! RVs will be pitched together.
Barbecues are allowed so long as they are off the ground.
Please note that unfortunately this Rally is the same weekend again as Retrofestival Newbury but there is still Retrofestival Newark 7-9 June if you do want to do both.
Campsites in the New Forest are very expensive in August so hope that Bamptons Farm as a low cost option will enable more to come along to enjoy Lymington in the summer.

It's a big field so we have a good area allocated for RVs (where daytime running of generators when essential is allowed) & the ground in the field is hard but drains well. To secure your place we need both your completed booking form & payment - please message here or PM us with your email address for the form.
Almost full now & booking closing soon - see the first post on Fun https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/lymington-august-2019-holiday-rally-seafood-festival-new-forest-isle-of-wight-beaulieu-golf.185164/ for full list of who is booked, a suggested itinerary & useful info. which is kept updated. Unable to post as much info. on here due to forum post limits.
