Hollands Wood
Prices From £18.15 per night (Two Adults) BOOK NOW

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!

Regrettably organised thieves are known to operate in the new forest area, which is an open and unfenced environment. High value bicycles left outside units in particular are targeted. Please be aware and make your own informed choices regarding security arrangements for your property.

It was totally amazing - the children loved it more than imaginable - thank you x
Unit Type: Camper Van
The best site in the New Forest
Stayed for one night whilst in the area and forgot how good this site is. It is the first site we ever stayed at and it is no different and just as magical. Lovely welcome, only a couple of rules about speed, wild horses and noise. And then into the woods to find a pitch. Shower blocks are brilliant and on this experience we will return.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Ideal countryside escape
Wonderful camping at Hollands Wood. Lovely little nooks and crannies to camp in and explore in the heart of the New Forrest. Well looked after site and very helpful and friendly staff. Kids had bikes and it was a safe place to explore and enjoy the outdoors. Surrounded by the wildlife and horses/etc. Really relaxing x
Unit Type: Tent
Best campsite ever!
Very kind staff, lots of space, nice privacy, massive field to play in next to site and great for cycling! Thanks to Graham for the lollipop! ( boys showers could do with some improvement, ladies was good)
Unit Type: Camper Van
Great stay but more staff needed
We absolutely love this campsite and have stayed many times, you can pick your pitch so it doesn't feel regimented and the horses and wildlife that are allowed to wander through the campsite just add to the magic - even when they steal your marshmallows! There is a really relaxed feel to the site and there are dedicated wide roads for vehicles throughout the site. There is a beautiful huge lawn/field in front of the site which the horses graze on but you can use it for ball games or walking. We had a fabulous stay but the only downside is that it is obvious that the number of staff has been reduced dramatically since we first started using the campsite four years ago. The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful but were clearly run off their feet and working extremely hard. I think it was probably due to the reduction in staff that lead to some of the shower blocks being closed part way through our stay which meant queuing for showers. However, when we did use them all the shower/toilet areas were clean and in good working order. Overall a fantastic break and would visit again, it is just a shame that staffing has been so reduced hence the reason for a four and not a five star review.
Unit Type: Tent
lovely campsite but needed to cancel one of the pitches
Amazing campsite nestled in the woods with wild roaming horses and cows meandering through the tents and vans. The only gripe is that we wanted to cancel one of the pitches but couldn't get through to Camping in the forest as "it was a bank holiday"... left us feeling a bit disappointed in the service received (or not as the case may be).
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
3 night stay
Really enjoyed our stay. The children had such a good time playing in the fields, climbing trees and visiting the horses. We will definitely be back
Unit Type: Tent
Great campsite, but needs more recycling facilities.
We had a great weekend at Hollands Wood. It was a lovely location, you're able to walk to Brockenhurst, and it's a short drive to most places in the New Forest. The campsite was quite near to the main road, so there was quite a bit of noise, even at night. Also there wasn't enough recycling facilities - in fact hardly any. The bins were over flowing, and lots of people were trying to recycle. The bathrooms were ok, quite clean, and a little over crowded in a morning.
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely forest camping
So lovely to see all the children on their bikes, kicking a ball, den-building, tree-climbing and getting mucky. Feels so safe but a great outdoors experience that kids don't often get. Beautiful surroundings and convenient for local attractions. Shower/toilet facilities fine. Just watch where you park as our car got stuck after a night of rain and we helped some others who also got stuck.
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely site - great for a woodland retreat holiday
Really lovely campsite with plenty of great pitches. The sunny mornings with the sun shining between the trees was just gorgeous. Our children (ages 3 and 9) enjoyed themselves immensely and it was an extra bonus to have the ponies wandering around! Facilities were fine - very busy at peak periods but kept clean and tidy, with plenty of loo roll!!! Lots to do in the local area. Would highly recommend for a back to basics camping experience!
