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!

Best ever
Me and my mate stayed there in June for four nights love every day great facilities great staff very polite and friendly and professional.will be back in September for a long weekend by far the best campsite I ever been to.
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.
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
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.
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.
Great Site... though beside a busy / noisy road
This is a really lovely site, very spacious with lots of trees and gorgeous ponyie wondering around and the people working there are lovely. The only issue I had is that one side of the camp backs on to a very busy main road... Unfortunately when we arrived their were no plots in the center / field adjacent part of the camp so we were forced to pitch up on the road side of the camp. Originally we assumed this wouldn't make too much of a difference HOWEVER it really was very VERY loud and busy road that maintains a constant flow of traffic throughout the day and night.. if we were staying longer we would have moved the tent had a plot become available, unfortunately nothing became available to make it worth our while. My recommendation is that you arrive early to ensure that you don't end up next to a busy main road.
A wonderful campsite
We stayed here for 5 nights, wish it had been longer. It is a superb location, and beautifully maintained. The facilities were always clean, and never had to wait for a shower! The pitch was great, amongst the trees with a view out onto the meadow. It's well situated for day trips to many local attractions too, and there are shops in the nearby village for supplies. I would strongly recommend this campsite to anyone.
The Coopers review of Hollands Wood, New Forest
We love this site and have been a number of times over the years. Great to just pitch up and walk straight into the Forest, pubs are great in Brockenhurst about 10 mins walk through the fields. Facilities are great, even a dog shower, no electric, but great to be without the TV for a few nights.
Penny Kirkley review of Hollands Wood, New Forest
Hollands Wood is a beautiful campsite just off the M27. Right in the heart of the forest you can camp amongst the trees in small glades. The toilets and shower blocks are excellent and cleaned regularly. There's an office at the front gate where you can recharge batteries and phones. Shops, pubs etc are nearby in Brockenhurst and Lymington. The whole site is very safe for younger children. It's peaceful, beautiful and easy to get to. A really wonderful camping holiday.
Anita Jones review of Hollands Wood, New Forest
A beautiful large site with friendly staff, clean facilities. It was our first visit to this site with 2 young children. Seeing the ponies and cows roaming the site was truely great. The site was full to capacity being peak season, there were a lot of kids riding bikes round the site mostly without supervision and sometimes without any road sense. The site is supposed to be quiet by 10.30pm but was very noisey everynight until very late. But was a great break away and we would return but proberly not during the peak season.
