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!

Arrived bank holiday weekend - place was packed. Screaming kids EVERYWHERE. Literally, everywhere. Some thoughtless people had brought a baby, which woke us up twice in the night screaming. Tents packed so close to each other (disregard for site rules and staff didn't say anything). Staff on arrival were friendly and let us choose where we wanted to camp. However, there was not really a space far enough away from anyone else. Toilets pretty gross.. think low grade service garage toilet. Soap in toilets often run out. Husband encountered poo smeared around tissue dispenser in the male toilets and on the back of the toilet door yet had no other choice but to use that toilet as there was no other free. He became severely ill the next day, strange considering we had eaten exactly the same meals, and we were forced to leave the site three nights early. Called site manager who was very abrupt and told us we did not stand to receive any money back. To sum up this camp site.. it is a bit like going to a really rubbish festival full of screaming children and no privacy. Will never return.

Need to enforce the rules of the camp site ie no wood fires and quite after 10.30pm
Had a wonderful relaxing time at the camp site untill our last day and night when a very large group turned up and they had no concern for any other camper with there loud talking and music until 2 o'clock in the morning. The warden's need to enforce the camp site rules ie no log fires and quite after 10.30pm

Holiday spoilt by site team staff member misusing he disabled toilet facilities
I have fed back in detail in your post stay survey. Please ensure this situation is addressed so it doesn't happen to any other customers requiring the use of your disabled toilet / shower facilities. This staff member really ruined our stay. It is a shame as all other staff were helpful and kind.

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.

Training required
Pleasant second stay, despite being asked to take down our dome shelter that was attached to our tent as an awning for our cooking stove etc. There seemed to be more rules than when we stayed last year. My main issue is that the reception staff need some training in cultural competence. My parents came to visit with some family and I purchased a pass for them to come for the late afternoon/ evening. My father (an Asian gentleman) was driving my Irish mum and two members of her family. The person on reception asked if he was their taxi driver. This is demeaning, casual racism and I feel personally offended by this slight to my father. Please discuss with your reception staff so they either except that their guests and visitors may come from diverse backgrounds, or ask them not to air their assumptions.

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.

Site gone down hill
Having been going to this site for the last 10 years I looked forward to going this year. On arrival the site was flooded due to zero mantainance of the site. The roads were full of pot holes. Showers were clean but shut outside the times given and when challenged staff could barely talk to us. Security is non existent. Twice in a row at 9 pm the gate was open in manned allowing anyone to come in. Problems with shower blocks like broken fittings or water very hot in shower not fixed from last year. For a very expensive two week stay (over 350 quid) this is now poor value and time the camping and caravan club reviewed it's management and infact up keep. Fires and eco logs are banned from the site however I viewed at least three wood fires on one night one less that 50 yards from the site office but wardens did nothing. Gazebos also banned in high season but multiple spotted. All in all a poorly run site a pale reflection of its former glory. I recommend that you look elsewhere for better value on your summer camping trips

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.
