Described by David Bellamy himself as one of his ‘Paradise Parks’, and holding the David Bellamy Conservation Award for its commitment to preserving and enhancing the natural environment, Hollands Wood campsite is set in 22 hectares of gorgeous oak woodland, bordered by exquisite heathland. Pitching your tent here will automatically connect you to nature and provide you with a camping experience you won’t forget!
Just a ten minute stroll away is Brockenhurst village with an abundance of pubs, banks, shops and restaurants. The campsite also has direct access to the forest via its numerous walking and cycle paths, and is within easy reach of the popular and expansive picnic site of Balmer Lawn next to the Lymington River, perfect for a dreamy lunch next to an enchanting waterway - where wildlife is abundant.
From April to September, New Forest rivers and streams are home to many different species of beautiful, multi coloured dragonflies and damselflies. Twenty species of fish are present in New Forest waterways, ranging from eels and pike to brown trout. The expansive green areas next to the waterways are known as lawns and were formed during times of flood, where the water overflowed the banks and deposited minerals that enriched the soil to sustain grass.
This is an extremely family-friendly campsite and popular with families, groups and young people alike; it is therefore advisable to book in advance during high season to avoid disappointment. With Ranger Activities available at this campsite, lots of attractions within easy reach, and expansive outdoor areas, the family will never be short of things to do!
There is no electricity on site, but there are three toilet and shower blocks, disabled facilities, baby wash and change areas, laundry facilities and a dog shower. Please note that the postcode satnav directions will take you to a different campsite.
