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!

Lovely site, will visit again
Hollands wood is a great place to camp, good clean facilities, friendly and helpful staff, spacious enough that even in busy times it doesn't feel crowded. No electric hook ups, but that didn't bother us for a short stay. Strange noises in the night, the New Forest ponies seemed to like our van as a scratching point! So lovely to see them wandering around freely.

As good as it gets!
Had the absolute best time at Hollands wood. Before I had even left I already missed the place, and can't wait to go back there. I had been looking at smaller campsites as I was worried that Hollands wood would be too big with too many people. It is a very large campsite, but you don't even notice it. The campsite is set in an incredible spot. The pitches (choose your own) are all set amongst the trees and you can be secluded or sociable, depending on what you like. Friendly Horses and cattle roam freely around. There is a lot of beautiful woodland to explore, and birds for days. There is also a large field that is full of peat where most of the animals hang out. It really is an amazing spot to sit amongst the grazing animals and pat the odd horse. There is a swimming spot that is walking distance by the nearby town, which also has a few pubs that we didn't utilise. Facilities are clean and has the essentials, staff were super firendly and helpful, and there is also ice to keep your beer cold and other essential items available to buy. All for a great price. Oh and the beach is about 30 mins drive and worth a visit. I can't actually think of any negatives from our stay, thank you so much!

Beautiful, secluded site with very friendly staff
Our first experience of motor home camping, and we picked a fantastic site. Lots of birdsong, camping among ancient oak trees, with ponies wandering freely. The site staff were all very helpful and friendly, and the facilities are very clean and well-maintained. A short walk into Brockenhurst, either through the forest or along the road, takes you to a selection of shops, pubs and eating places. We will certainly return to this lovely spot!

Perfect site for visiting the New Forest
We visited Hollands Wood for a 2-night camping trip with a friend and his daughter. On arrival we were greeted by a really nice guy who told us everything that we needed to know. There were plenty of spaces to pitch our tent. The toilet blocks were clean and well maintained. Good location for visiting the New Forest. Brockenhurst has a few pubs, a Tesco, a Sainsburys and a selection of other shops which is only a short walk from the site. I was tempted to give a bad review just so that I could keep this campsite to myself and not share it with other campers!! but I couldn't do that because its too nice.

My husband and I came here to test out our horsebox conversion. We were going greeted with smiles and a joke or two and this continued throughout our stay. The staff were very friendly and informative not just about the surrounding area but helped with tips to improve our conversion. Facilities were excellent. Clean. We could not want for more. Public transport and taxis very expensive so will definitely bring our bikes next time. We will be back to this site again

Love it.
I love this campsite. It's always clean toilets are always spotless. Love the peace and quiet, all you can hear are birds. Waking up to ponies most mornings is amazing. Been here 3 times and will be returning.

Another lovely camping weekend At Holland's wood.
I camp at Holland's wood 4-5 times a year, mostly when I am assessing Bronze DofE expeditions, but also with friends. It is my campsite of choice, I have camped here earlier in my life with my parents. The venue is lovely, the staff are friendly the unpredictability of the ponies and cattle spice up every visit. I particularly love walking out onto the plain, to look at the stars, and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the forest. It never fails to amaze me how quiet the campsite is at night, with so many people on site. I hope to have many more camping trips to this fabulously campsite in years to come 😉 I have four more planned camping trips to Holland's wood this year.
Unit Type: Tent
Staff were extremely friendly, facilities were clean and easily accessible. Lots of lovely places to cycle. The pitch was between trees and very quiet. Lovely to see the ponies, cows, squirrels and toads!!!

Brilliant stay as usual
Such a magical place to visit with our twin 6 year olds. This time we introduced 2 of their friends & families to the magic of Hollands Wood. We have been coming here for the past 4 years. As usual, the booking process was easy & efficient, toilet blocks cleaned regularly & fantastic friendly and helpful staff - thanks!

Overall very good, but a few minor dissapointments
As with previous years, a relaxing week. Friendly staff, seen mainly on bicycles :-) My only criticism is that there seems to be less encouragement for campers to do recycling compared with previous visits (i.e. all waste gets put into the same bins); I always thought this was a great way to encourage children to grow up doing the right thing, even if they didn't do so at home. Also the funny "rhyming signs" in the washing-up room and toilet blocks are no longer there (compared to a few years ago when I last visited this site), and again it is sad to see these go as they were an encouragement extended to children to take care of their environment, do the right thing, etc.
