Hollands Wood Caravan and Campsite: Grass pitches (photo added by manager on 31/01/2023)

General

  • Friendly New Forest campsite with simple facilities provided
  • Five minutes' drive from Lyndhurst; 15 minutes from Lymington
  • Access to woodland walking trails; half hour's walk to Brockenhurst

It can be tricky to escape the trappings of modern life these days… but Hollands Wood Caravan and Campsite is a place that allows guests to do just that. With 22 hectares of gorgeous oak woodland as a backdrop, this campsite in the New Forest National Park is a fabulous spot for stepping back and taking some deep breaths of fresh air.

Stays here are on simple pitches woven through the treelines, among the ferns or out in slightly more open spots – take your pick depending on which one catches your eye. Whichever you pick, you should be treated to soothing views of green space, sounds of woodland and the chance to spot the New Forest’s famed wild ponies wandering freely. (Please note the natural terrain means that rock pegs are a good idea for successful tent pitching.)

The friendly atmosphere at Hollands Wood lends itself well to many hours of chilling out in the woods – but the location’s also an excellent one for those who’d like to take off and explore more widely. From here you’ll have access to 143 miles of waymarked trails for walks or bike rides through the surrounding woodlands, or you could walk to Brockenhurst (home of several lovely places to eat and drink) in about half an hour.

This is a place where guests are encouraged to embrace the natural setting in all its glory, but there are a few facilities provided to make life a little more comfortable – these include toilets, showers, a washing-up area and a launderette. You’ll also be asked to follow the New Forest Code to help maintain this glorious environment, and use organic toilet fluid where possible in chemical loos.

    Stunning scenery at Hollands Wood, in the heart of the New Forest. On arrival friendly staff gave us great advice on where to pitch our tent. We had an amazing view over the meadow, horses and cows roaming freely. I went camping with my daughter and grandchildren and our 3 dogs, this was the first time the children had been camping and they loved every minute, disappointed when we had to pack up to leave. The camp site has first class facilities, lovely warm toilets and showers, kept clean and stocked. Area for washing up and a laundry on site too. Close to lovely country pubs which are child and dog friendly and served great food (Snakecatcher).
    Will we be using this campsite again??? 100% yes 🙌

Local attractions

Nearby Brockenhurst (half an hour’s walk/five minutes’ drive) is a good place to stroll to – the village has some lovely pubs, a bike hire facility for woodland cycle trails and the perennially popular Balmerlawn picnic spot for a riverside snack. Lyndhurst (five minutes’ drive) is another nice village to visit, with the New Forest Heritage Centre and bike tours available.

Spotting animals is surely part of any New Forest break, and that’s guaranteed with trips to places like the New Forest Reptile Centre (10 minutes), Longdown Activity Farm (15 minutes) and New Forest Wildlife Park (15 minutes).

The natural world is a huge draw around here – but so are the shiny cars of the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu (15 minutes). Once you’ve finished there, head back to the site via Lymington (15 minutes), which has boat trips, boat hire and the chance to cool off in a seawater swimming pool.
