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!

Second stay at Holland wood, enjoyable as the first time. Lovely site in a very good position in amongst the forest. Amenities are top notch. staff friendly and welcoming.
Unit Type: Tent
Excellent campsite, friendly helpful staff, clean facilities and beautiful location!

Read the reviews on here before booking and almost got put off by a few peoples review of the site. Just got back from the weekend there and so glad we went it was brilliant and such a beautiful locataion. Facilities were very good and always kept clean even though the campsite was completely full. Staff couldnt have been better they were friendly and really helpful. We managed to get a perfect spot to pitch on the edge of the open forest and away from the road. Definitely worth trying to find a spot there if you don't want the road noise. Some areas had flooded a bit but were fenced off well so just avoided them. Ponies everywhere, just watch out for the small herd of shetlands they managed to open up a tent, walk in and help themselves to dog food the day before we got there!! Just put your food in your car if you're out for the day. Would definitely camp there again!

Lovely campsite
/
Had a great weekend away. It's a lovely campsite set inthe woods. The facilities are clean and well looked after. Amazing to have the ponies waking through the campsite. Would definitely stay here again. The Huntsman pub in Brockenhurst is a great place to eat but make sure you book as very popular.

Fantastic holiday

I stayed here with my 3 boys we had a great time the boys loved every minute, the exploring, tree climbing, jumping in muddy puddles the adventures go on and on, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly too and made us feel welcome so much so we have arrived home and booked strait away to return.

Amazing!

I really can't praise this campsite enough. We have stayed in many campsites and this is by far the best. It is a woodland campsite where you decide where you want to pitch. As a result you can go where you like! Wild horses, cows and other wildlife are always passing by. Maybe not everyone's perfect campsite, but for us it allowed a natural feeling. My children loved the site and even though we suffered some rain, we had an amazing time. The staff were so friendly and happy. They seemed to always be litter picking and keeping the area clean, but without being imposing. The toilet and shower facilities were the cleanest I have seen from a campsite. My only criticism is the lack of baby changing. Just one of the three toilet/shower blocks offered this and that facility was far from perfect. A minor issue considering how amazing everything else was. I would recommend for anyone wanting to escape the reality of working life and experience a natural camping adventure.

Enjoyable

The only issue I had was we were told to put down our event shelter on the Saturday as it was the rules but that meant our children had nowhere to sit and stay dry apart from the tent and because there was 5 families together that couldn't work plus there were 2 camper vans together opposite us who had the same thing put up between their vans and they kept us until gone 3am singing and drinking NOTHING WAS SAID TO THEM totally unfair as ours was to keep us dry when eating together and for children. Putting that down ruined it for us specially as within our group was a 6 month baby

Very good campsite, I recommend it!

Great facilities and close to nearby town
/
A great campsite, large open pitches where you could pick your own spot. Ponies wondering through the campsite all the time and a short distance to open moorland - lovely. The only downside is that we were not allowed to put up our gazebo, something that we were not informed off prior to arrival. This meant that on a very wet weekend we had little chance of staying dry! It was also frustrating that others put up their gazebos, and this wasn't checked on by the staff. It's also worth thinking about rain fall when you pitch your tent - after a night of heavy rain there were tents submerged and unusable! We were upgraded overnight to the 'lake side' :) The showers/toilet facilities were clean and regularly re stocked which was very good for when the campsite was fully booked. Showers were busy at time, but we never had to queue. If you are looking for a busy campsite, with good facilities and close to local amenities then this is the place. Not recommended for a quiet stay - this is a very large site and very popular!
