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 green space and relax in one of Hampshire’s, if not the UK’s, most serene places, complete with ancient woodland and historic New Forest ponies roaming freely.

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 way-marked routes 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!

Terrible neighbours!
We arrived Friday afternoon and found a lovely spot. We went for a walk and felt there was probably room for one tent in the space around us, taking into account the 6 metre rule. We went out for a walk and when we returned we found two tents had been pitched right at side of our MH. They were about to erect another tent, which would have been put up directly in front of us, had we not said something. We pointed out that they should be 6 metres away, they told us they had not been told this when checking in. Thankfully they measured out the 6 metres before pitching the third tent. They had also erected a hammock right next to our pitch. They were asked to remove this by one of the wardens, thankfully. This warden didn’t mention anything about the closeness of the tents, even if they were the same group they should of been 3 metres apart. This was not the case. The closeness of these tents spoilt our weekend. We felt intimidated by a group of people who we did not know being so close to us. It resulted in us spending more time in our van or away from the park. We would not recommend visiting a forest park campsite at weekend due to it being a free for all. Very poor in part of the wardens.

We have been camping and caravanning club members for several years.We have a caravan on a seasonal pitch in another camping in the forest site ,but fancied a couple of nights at Holland wood with our camper van to trial whether we wanted to change site’s. We were late putting our charcoal bbq pit on for our supper.whilst we were waiting for the coals to whiten so we could cook. The manager warden came over and informed us we needed to put it out. We explained we hadn’t eaten yet and that we were responsible adults 55+ we were in an open area with roof tiles protecting the ground.He was still adamant. We had hoped for some compassion and leniency . Maybe 30 minutes so we could cook our food? But no he stood there while we poured water on it! We felt like naughty children! I understand there are rules that we obviously didn’t know about. But there is common compassion too. We obviously won’t be moving across to this site now… Our site team are lovely and treat us with respect as we do them and the forest. It was nice to revisit hollands wood where we have previously been seasonals for five years +. We pitched in the lower clearing quite near the wardens office. Which had a very bright floodlight on until very late causing light pollution.we had a late walk around the site and noticed everyone else cooking on their bbq s . Maybe we should have pitched further away from the office? Such a shame as it was supposed to be a positive experience.

Great Spot and Well Organised
I only stayed for 1 night but check-in was really fast, everything was waiting for me at the entrance, I didn't even need to get out of my car! Washing and toilet facilities were big and clean. I liked that you could roam around and choose your own place to pitch. The pubs just up the road were really good and Brockenhurst is just a short walk away so supplies are very close by.
Unit Type: Tent
Wonderful experience in the forest
Had a fantastic time at Hollands wood, the pitch was a little way from the toilets and showers which was our choice as we were by the edge of the wilderness with the horses. The staff were very friendly and the shower block was very clean, we were also central to a lot of amenities in the forest. You can get to most places on bike through the trails rather than go on the main road. Would highly recommend. Geoff

Bliss in the forest!
Of course, when camping the weather helps! This is the 3rd time we have stayed, and the weather was fantastic! With plenty of pitches to chose from we had a beautiful spot, in among the trees. Ok no electricity hook up, but being off grid in this awesome spot is not a problem, On site facilities are great, with ice blocks and phone charging service at only a £1 a time, so no electricity isn't a problem. The local village of brockenhurst is only a short walk and couldn't be more pretty, with everything you need shop wise if needed. And the local wild pony's in the campsite, or in the village walking about is just a joy! A days cycling in the forest is a must, with a stop in for cold beer and great food at Lyndhurst is a delicious half way stop off, we hired our bikes in brockenhurst near the train station.. A day on Bournemouth beach , and an excellent days hiking on the new forest loop to Lyndhurst, (a cheap train journey return) was the iceing on the cake to an beautiful weeks camping! Book Holland's wood, and you won't be disappointed!!!

Friendly welcome. A huge site with a good choice of level pitches. Direct access onto the forest's cycle track network.

This is a tough one because this is a fabulous campsite Beautiful location, clean and the staff are so so friendly I want to give it 10 out of 10 but then you'll all flood here and I won't be able to book! Seriously though this is the best UK campsite we've perhaps stayed in.

Better than Ever
What a lovely stay we had! I have been coming to Hollands Wood since I was a young child and it has always been a pleasure. Whether coming as a child with my parents, as a group of friends (both before and after children) and now with my grand daughter, we have always enjoyed camping on this site. I must say that this year it seems the staff have payed extra attention to keeping the shower blocks clean, which always make the stay more pleasant. We will be back again next year.

Wonderful site, lovely staff - will come again
Thoroughly wonderful campsite. You're right among the trees, there's tons of space, the facilities are decent and pretty clean. You can walk straight from the campsite into the New Forest, and the ponies will just walk straight past. We chose this campsite because my son, who spent his formative years camping among the redwoods of Northern California, wanted to go to a "proper" campsite, where you're under the canopy of the trees. Now the new forest isn't exactly the same as the redwoods, but it's pretty amazing nonetheless. The small downsides that I see are... 1 - No Campfires. This is a rule of the New Forest - I totally get it but...I love campfires. 2 - Some of the pitches have bad drainage. Make sure that where you choose has enough dry space. 3 - Little shop doesn't sell gas cylinders or charcoal.
