Resized Denny
Prices From £10.60 per night (Two Adults) BOOK NOW
Sitting in a perfectly secluded spot of the New Forest, England's largest ancient woodland, is Denny Wood campsite. A haven for nature lovers and a peaceful retreat for stress-ridden holidayers, Denny Wood absorbs life’s worries and replaces them with only the best feelings.


Made up of open grassland, under-canopy pitches and tree-lined edges, Denny Wood gives the impression of being cut off from the outside world – a camper’s very own isolated piece of nature. Pitches are separated by the natural features of the land, such as ferns, oaks and fallen trees, and are frequented by the free-roaming ponies of the New Forest.

Like all of our New Forest sites, pitch up at Denny Wood campsite and you’ll have direct access to many of the waymarked routes in the Forest, just a short walk from your pitch.

The New Forest itself is a wonderful place for all outdoor enthusiasts, with its mixture of landscapes all maintained by the free roaming animals. 

Made up of rich heathlands, open grasslands, rivers and of course ancient trees, it’s the perfect setting for outdoor adventures on foot, on horseback or by bike, or more relaxing pursuits including photography and nature watching.

Take your next holiday at Denny Wood campsite. Book today and have your mind and body ready for some serious outdoor refreshment.

Please note: Dogs are not allowed on this site

Facilities available at Denny Wood Campsite, New Forest

The site has a special emphasis on nothing but nature, meaning that grassland and trees take precedence over toilet and shower blocks, though chemical toilet disposal facilities are present.

This means that a chemical toilet is required at this campsite.

Drinking taps are provided, and Denny Wood’s 170 pitches cover tents, trailers and caravans, with hardstanding and seasonal pitches available.

Please note that Denny Wood is one of our two campsites (the other is Ashurst) that does not allow you to bring your canine (or other pet) friends.

Lovely stay at Denny Wood
Lovely site, really friendly wardens. Large pitches and lots of space for the children to explore. We will be back
Unit Type: Tent
Great Place
Back to Denny Wood after 20 years changed from a motor home to a Caravan due to health problems, first test this is camping in the real sense. Wardens where great, helpful, always with a smile and a wave. We will return very soon

A brief but enjoyable stay
I stayed one night, 1st July, and had to be up and out at 4am to start a triathlon at Bucklers Hard. Denny Wood is a beautiful space and the other residents were all very pleasant and respectful. There were horses meandering through the campsite which made for a nice photo. And the staff at reception were super helpful in lending me a commode/toilet for use in my very hot tent ... that was a first but fun! I will certainly return, perhaps later in the year with my 4 and 2 year old. Thank you Denny Wood and New Forest for a great weekend.
Unit Type: Tent
Great site shame about the unattended vans.
We have always loved the informality of Denny Wood and the possibility it offers of tucking oneself away 'in the Forest '. However we notice that many of the units are unattended and have presumably been pitched for the season to be visited by their owners now and again. This denies visiting campers the opportunity of using some of the best situated pitches. Last year we were treated to the sound of a burglar alarm coming from one of the unattended rigs at all hours. We know a number of people who feel that camping at Denny Wood has been spoilt by this policy of renting pitches for the entire season and choose to go elsewhere for that reason.

Happy Camper
This was my first time in the New Forest NP and therefore at Denny Wood Campsite. The site has a beautiful setting with easy walks into the park from your front door/porch/awning. I visited on a busy weekend and much of the site was already occupied by campers and caravans. I found a more secluded space on the fringes of the site among some trees. The facilities are basic but sufficient. With no WCs, this site it slightly less suitable for those solely relying on a tent. I would recommend and will return to Denny Wood.
Unit Type: Tent
Peace and quiet
Lovely scenic location with nice quiet woodland walks. Helpful friendly staff on a reasonably priced, well managed site. A good base to visit the local attractions. Bucklers hard and the motor museum for example. The Isle of Wight is a short hop as well. We will use this site again.
Unit Type: Tent
Our bolt hole!!
We have stayed here several times and is our default site for stress relief!!!The tranquility, trees, birds and animals does it every time.Friendly wardens who leave you in peace but arrange get togethers for when you want company. The Drift pub about 25 minute walk through wood and heathland does lovely food and drink. Can't wait for next visit!!!

bertieburstner review of Denny Wood, New Forest
Lovely peaceful campsite in the forest. We went here for a change from our usual sight, Aldridge Hill, and found it very nice. Although it does not have the views or sunsets of Aldridge Hill, it is beautifully quiet with direct access into the forest for cycling and walking. There are pitches either in the open or under the trees. No dogs allowed (they can go to Matley Wood half a mile away) and only a tap and chemical waste disposal. In a word, beautiful and just what a campsite should be
