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 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!

Please note: Organic toilet fluid is preferred at this campsite and rock pegs are recommended.  

Any barbecues used on our sites should be specifically designed and used only for the purpose of cooking food (i.e not firepits). They should be robust, secure and able to be raised off of the forest floor, there should no damage or marks left on the ground where they have been used. In support of the New Forest Action Plan we are asking campers not to bring disposable barbecues for their stay. We are also reminding campers that outside of our sites no barbecues of any kind are now allowed anywhere in the New Forest.

Please do not feed, pet or approach the animals in and around the campsite; they may look friendly but are unpredictable and can bite and kick. Please keep all food sealed and out of reach of the ponies

Lovely as always
I've been staying at Hollands Wood since I was a baby (camping with my parents), I'm now 50 and still love coming to this site - although I now live in Cumbria so not as often as I used to. The staff remain as lovely and as helpful as ever. The facilities are great and I am pleased they have never been tempted to put in electric hook-up points. It's a great location with plenty of walks from the door - I have two big dogs and they love it...especially squirrel watching!
Unit Type: Camper Van
First time at Hollands wood. We only live in Everton which is about 7 miles away but due to me being my Mothers main carer we cannot travel far. We had a super view, the dogs loved it, my husband felt like he was on holiday and I was able to pop back to Lymington to see my Mum. All boxes ticked. Lovely Staff to greet us on arrival, even though it was the final weekend for them.
Unit Type: Caravan
Loads of space, very natural, decent washrooms, lovely setting and friendly staff.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Absolutely stunning location. We were fortunate enough to have wonderful weather which always helps but I think that even if it hadn't been so good we would still have enjoyed this lovely place. Very impressed with the facilities which were kept nice and clean the whole of our stay. The only thing that spoiled our visit were dogs whose owners seem to think it is totally acceptable to let them bark almost incessantly and we have been put off visiting this particular place again which is a real shame as it is stunning. Had to knock one star off because of the dogs.
Unit Type: Camper Van
My wife and I stayed here last yrear for a weekend and liked it so much we came back for a week with 4 others. So peacefull and the staff are so freindly and the toilet blocks are well maintained. It was unfortunate one had to be closed down which meant we had a little further to walk, this didn't damper our stay. Will be visiting again some time in the future.

Delightful nature stay
Upon arrival staff are genuinely friendly and kind people. So many beautiful spots to pitch up, wherever you choose! It is true only one of the shower blocks were open but we never had to wait more than a minute for a shower to open up. Toilets and showers were cleaned regularly. There were beautiful cows and ponies all over the camp. Some sweet, some determined to nick your food. We lost a whole loaf of bread to a naughty pony, who strut in and took it before we had a chance to stop her. This is why they say don't feed the animals because now some of them feel entitled! It was highly amusing though! The camp warden was there pretty soon to scare her off. Would definitely stay again. Watching the hazy mist rise and fall over the marshy field at dawn and dusk was very calming and beautiful.

Great stay
Got all the facilities you need and was also a stones throw away from Brockenhurst village which was throwing a vegan food festival at the village Hall. At one point, a cohort of wild ponies marched straight past the front of our tent through the camp site! Reception also let us take our pitch down after the official check out time as we were at the food festival. Would recommend... Danny

Fantastic camp site !!
Absolutely loved our long weekend here ! Great friendly helpful staff, camp site & facilities clean & tidy, right on the edge of the forest which does attract the naughty ponies, but all good fun just be prepared to have your tent ransacked if you are home or not 😂 lots of beautiful walks for miles through the forest or 10 min walk from Brockenhurst town that is lovley, everything you need there & more dog friendly pubs & lots to look at & buy, fantastic all round set up will definitely be returning
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely site!
Or stay at Hollands Wood was great, safe for the children, our check in was smooth and swift. The toilet/shower block was very clean and the showers were a lovely temperature. We'd love to stay there again!
Unit Type: Tent
Rules are not enforced
No buring wood, quiet campsite after 1030. Neither these rules were enforced with music from a neighbouring camping going on till past midnight. Camp is large and had it been lighter (and had they started earlier) we would have moved. Toilet blocks clean but overall the site seemed more of a party campsite. Will not be staying here again
