Splendid seclusion and simplicity await for guests at Matley Wood Caravan and Camping Site – this New Forest campsite is a place where pitches are tucked away among ancient woodlands or in peaceful little open spaces. Whichever spot you opt for, you’ll be all set for a fabulous forest stay that’s all about embracing your spectacular natural surroundings.
Getting a sense of the local landscapes might involve simply sitting quietly on your pitch to look out for wild ponies roaming, or heading out into the wilds on one of the walking/bike paths that runs from the campsite. Or, for a slightly different view of your Hampshire location, you may like to follow the half-hour walk to Lyndhurst, where you can reward your efforts with a restaurant meal or pint in the pub.
Part of the draw of this location is its peaceful and secluded location, but it’s also a spot that’s well placed for all sorts of outings to places like the National Motor Museum or Paultons Park. And naturally, as this is the New Forest National Park there are lots of outdoor activities all around, including walks, bike rides, watersports and horse riding.
Aiming to preserve the natural environment as much as possible, this site is a simple one that’s got a ‘wild camping’ sort of vibe to it. As such there are no toilets or showers, so you’ll need to bring your own chemical toilet (ideally with organic chemicals). You’ll also be asked to be mindful of the simple rules of the New Forest Code, which aims to keep wildlife, the environment and guests safe from harm.

Wildlife spotting is a real highlight for guests at Matley Wood – either seeing what you can spy from your pitch or a wander through the woods, or setting off to local animal attractions like the New Forest Reptile Centre (10 minutes’ drive) and Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary (15 minutes).
For hands-on kids’ animal activities, head to Longdown Activity Farm (10 minutes), where they can get stuck into things like goat feeding, meet the pigs and alpacas and take tractor rides. Adults and teenagers might like to try the bird of prey experiences at Forest Falconry (20 minutes), while younger guests will be happier among the rides, animals and cartoon characters at Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World (20 minutes).
Heading south towards the coast, it won’t take long to get to the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu (10 minutes) or to the historic village of Buckler’s Hard (15 minutes), where the maritime museum charts the story of the place where Nelson’s ships were built.
