Hollands Wood is the perfect retreat for both mind and body. David Bellamy described this site as one of his 'Paradise parks'. Set amongst 22 hectares of beautiful oak woodland - the ideal backdrop for relaxation or an action-packed break - you can see why. What's more, visit once and you'll want to come back again and again.

It's not easy to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. Finding the time and the place to 'get away from it all' is a challenge for each of us. This is where Hollands Wood steps in; to help you disconnect, step back and take a deep breath of fresh air - a spa for the mind and body.

Giant oak trees surround the pitches at Hollands Wood, sunlight pierces the canopy, and rich green hues colour the landscape as far as the eye can see. With the natural features of the land still in place, pitches weave through the treelines, amongst the ferns and into slightly more open land, giving plenty of camping options. 

Stay at our Hollands Wood campsite and you’ll find out what peace and quiet really means. Surround yourself with boundary-less green space and relax in one of Hampshire’s, if not the UK’s, most serene places.

When you’re done resting take off into the forest surrounding the site. Go by bike or on foot and enjoy the 143 miles of track and path that dissect the glorious woodlands.

Nearby villages include the beautiful Brockenhurst with its abundance of restaurants, pubs and shops. The expansive picnic site at Balmer Lawn, next to the Lymington River, is a popular choice for both visitors and residents, and has provided a beautiful setting for picnics and dreamy lunches for many years.

With its friendly, welcoming atmosphere, Hollands Wood is perfect for all campers. It's the place to surround yourself with the incredible oaks and green space of the New Forest, the place to temporarily turn your back on the outside world – go on, book with us today!

Site to be avoided
Returned from aborted trip to Hollands Wood, we were greeted by friendly member of staff who explained that it had been raining the previous 2 days and the site was extremely wet. He added that people booked for Monday had already been contacted and there booking cancelled, I wish they had rang us and saved a 3 hour car journey. He however assured us that there were plenty of pitches available but to check carefully for soft ground and avoid being closer than 6m to other campers. He finished by saying make sure you don't get your car stuck as the locals are charging ?200 to pull cars out. We proceeded into the site and drove around for 30 minutes without any sign of a suitable pitch. Any empty pitches were either flooded, on extremely soft ground or to close to other campers. In despair we decided that there was no choice but to drive out of the site and return home. On reflection we should have gone back to reception and complained there and then but we were so fed up that we just wanted to get away from the site. I know when sites are quiet it's not an issue to find your own pitch but when a site is very busy and also been effected by severe weather the staff should guide you to an empty pitch. I certainly will not be returning to Hollands Wood.

Long weekend
We have just returned from a long weekend camping as a family. It's an amazing place, wonderful walks and beautiful wildlife. We had ponies walking through our camp and wild horses grazing nearby. The staff were helpful and informative and passionate about the rules of the forest, which is not surprising, as they want to protect this beautiful place. Play by the rules and enjoy it, we did. See you soon.

Really Upsetting Visit
Booked two pitches Thursday 17th July for 2 nights and was told by person manning telephone we could erect our 4ft square by 6ft high tent porch as heavy rain was expected early Saturday morning and we only had a hiking tent and a pop up tent for my daughter. On arriving at the site again I checked with reception and was told yes we could put it up. Within half an hour a very authoritarian ranger (we think Asst Manager) came to us and questioned what we were doing, and demanded to know if we had paid for 2 pitches and what were our booking numbers as he would be checking with reception.He asked why our tents were not showing the yellow tags they give us to display and was not interested in the fact we were still unpacking and putting up the tents. We were told to take down our porch as it was not allowed even though caravans much larger than ours had 8 x 6 porches attached to them. He was very un-friendly, creating a spectacle for other campers to enjoy and made us feel that we had some how got into the site without paying.The showers were filthy and dogs constantly barked through the night Our advice go to a small private site were you are treated as a paying guest not as just another pitch out of the 600 on site

long weekend break
We have just returned from a long weekend away. this was our first stay at this site. we booked 2 pitches as two familys went. kids ages ranged from 3years to 14 years... on arrival we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff and gave us all the info re the campsite. the campsite was very busy but we were able to find two pitches big enough next to one another.. the first night was noisy with a couple of other fellows campers sitting outside laughing and drinking and you hear dogs barking through the night.. but you would expect that as if dogs here a noise they BARK.... the toilet blocks are very clean and the horse's cows and ponys walk freely which is amazing for the children to see... we shall be booking another long weekend in August 14 if they have the availability. . from walters and wand family

Would totally recommend this campsite. Have just come back after our fourth stay at this site. The facilities are wonderful and clean. It is a quiet site unless you happen to be pitched close to the road. As mentioned would totally recommend.

Extremely unfriendly staff and very average campsite
I was greeted at the campsite by one extremely hostile and rude member of staff, closely followed by another. I was hard to believe that I was a paying guest at this campsite. If I was camping alone, I would have just gone elsewhere, but I had a group of friends camping there which I was meeting up with. It was a bit last minute and I had to meet them after work. I work as a chef, so I didn't finish until 9.30pm. I was told the last entry into the site was at 10.30pm, I had rushed to get there in time and arrived at 10.35pm, I explained the situation and asked politely if they could let me in to meet up with my friends. I was told very abruptly and rudely that the gate was shut at 10.30 with no exceptions and it was my own fault for being late. Fair enough! A little flexibility would have gone a long way, but rules are rules and I accepted that. Then followed a very unprovoked verbal attack and threatening behaviour such as aggressive finger pointing and swearing. I was shocked and appalled at this behaviour, not only was I a paying customer, but now an inconvenienced and frustrated guy just looking to meet up with his buddies and set up camp. It was an awful experience, I went from being quite excited to camping and seeing old friends to quite pissed off to be frank! The campsite was average, and the noise from the nearby road didn't bother me that much, but there are much better isolated spots to camp in the forest without being harassed by such unfriendly staff. I will never camp here again and I would advise anyone thinking about doing so to look elsewhere as there are many lovely campsites around this area with much friendlier staff. Also, on a side note, I met a fellow camper on the site with a very similar story about the same staff members who were very rude to him too. I would advise the staff to look into customer service and general politeness in human interaction.

cycle weekend
Mr Ricky Granger 39 Ferndown Avenue Orpington Kent BR68DE I and 5 pals booked onto Holland wood camp site on Thursday the 14th Aug to Sunday the 17th for a long weekend of cycling. We had been there last year in the July and had found the site to be a great place to base ourselves. There are plenty of trails to cycle car free, also it is central to some great places to visit and we had a great weekend. This year unfortunately our weekend got off to a bad start when on arrival we were told that we could not have a gazebo erected. We set up our tent (6 berth) and some windbreakers on the boundary of our pitch. As we were finishing setting up it started to rain, our cooking facilities were in danger of getting soaked so we erected our opened sided gazebo directly in front of our tent over the burner and small gas fridge that we had set up on a table. On the Friday we set off on our first bike ride, on arrival back to our tent we were greeted with a rather blunt letter stating the gazebo had to be removed. At 12.30am that night a site warder told the only remaining person not in bed that we had been warned to take it down. On the Saturday morning a camp warden once again appeared and sternly told us that it had to come down, no ifs or buts. We tried to say that we were not using it as a gazebo as such but he basically said he was not interested and that that was our last warning. We had paid almost ?200 for a plot of soil approx. 5m by 4m for 3 nights and felt we were on a prison camp not a holiday camp. It seems to me that when the site is busy the staff can?t cope so they pull out the rule book and stick to it regimentally rather than judging each situation individually. We were also unhappy with the shower facilities which constantly seem to be full of mud whatever time we went to them. This was our second visit to this site and will most defiantly be our last. Our other concern is that the site is full of horse manure, not very good with lots of children running ar
