Hollands Wood is the perfect retreat for both mind and body. Celebrity broadcaster and environmental campaigner 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. 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 paths running throughout 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 an idyllic setting for countryside 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!

Great time
Had a great time at Hollands Wood even the rain didnt deter the Ponies or make the staff any less happy or helpful. We had booked for a week but stayed three days longer. The Staff were all very cheerful and very Helpful .Thank you for such a lovely clean site
Unit Type: Tent
This is one of the nicest campsites we have stayed at, it's no frills outlook is just what you need to unwind in the tranquil peace of the forest. We would recommend this campsite to all who we speak too looking for a quiet campsite​, We will book again before.the year is out.

Great spot and facility, but a few suggestions in my review.
We had a lovely time (again) and the location is superb. The Welcome from the staff was exceptional. My only concern was the adhoc visits at night where staff were checking on noise/barbies/pits. We fully understand that the rules of the Forestry Commission must be followed eg charcoal burning only, and we followed this exactly. However, on 2 occasions on the same night we were approached without introduction (which was my main concern) and asked what we were burning. The lack of a formal introduction and slightly sprung approach actually spooked my daughter.. The last thing I want to do is ruin campers chances of being allowed to burn charcoal off the ground. That warmth and glow is vital to us for a good time; and is actually the reason why we choose to go to this site. We want that to continue!!!!!....I hope this is seen as a positive review. 99% of people burning on the site are wholly responsible, and we should not let a 'policing' attitude caused by the 1% (that do not want to comply) effect relations.

Hollands Wood, New Forest
Hello Three of us stayed on two pitches in our Teardrop Trailers Friday - Sunday early May, as we we're attending the Beaulieu Autojumble, the shower and toilet facilities we're always kept clean. Nice big pitches. The only downside was the crazy speed bumps! Nice walk into Brockenhurst. We will book again I'm sure.

Beautiful Location
We've been coming to this site for 25+ years. Its unspoilt, freedom to pitch as you like(within reason). Animals wandering round is lovely. Will continue to use this site for years to come too. It's our 'home from home'.
Unit Type: Caravan
Never fails to please!
We had another wonderful visit to the Hollands Wood campsite. Our toddler loved the ponies and we had some wonderful walks in the woods in the area. The facilities were close and clean,the only thing that would help would be to have a baby changing table. Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst village are close by and we would also recommend a visit to the reptile centre.

Great location, clean facilities - recommended for families
We had a wonderful stay here over the bank holiday weekend. We were met by Graham (member of the park staff) on arrival who made us feel incredibly welcome and even arranged for a refund as he realised we had paid to much (given the dimensions of our trailer) - we wouldn't have even known this. Love the fact that the pitches aren't marked out and you can select your own location. We had friends join us on Saturday and if meant they could pitch close to us. Great for children and recommend taking bikes. Showers etc were nice and clean. Great location in the NF - second visit and will be going again.
