Shamba Holidays is a family-friendly site that’s just a short drive from both the New Forest National Park and the sea and sand of Bournemouth town centre.
Guests who prefer a slower-paced stay can make use of the facilities on site – have a swim in the pool, take the dog for a walk, let the kids have a kick-about in the middle of the sports field (where goalposts are provided) or take them to make their own games elsewhere around the park.
In the evening, you can wind down by sipping drinks or munching on snacks at the clubhouse; you can dine here too if you fancy a sit-down meal. On some evenings, Shamba Holidays also has family-friendly entertainment.
The shop is fully stocked with food and drink (alcoholic and soft), so picnics should be easy to put together. You might also like to stop off here to pick up bacon and eggs for a cooked breakfast. Local products are available to try, while for something familiar you could just stick to sweets, treats and ice cream.
Shama Holidays is in a convenient location just off the A31 and is five minutes' drive from the centre of Ringwood. The friendly team look forward to giving you a warm welcome to this lovely site.
Open from 12/04/2021 to 31/12/2021

You needn’t stray far from base for fresh air activities: it’s a minute’s walk to East Moors Fishing Lake for days in quiet contemplation of the waters, and there’s further fishing five minutes’ drive away at Moors Valley Country Park, along with miniature steam trains, adventure play trails and golf.
If it’s rides and slides you’re after, Adventure Wonderland is 10 minutes away, with rollercoasters and log flumes, safari jeeps and battle boats; for fans of a certain cheeky cartoon porker, Peppa Pig World has rides and an indoor playground (20 minutes).
Wanting watery antics? Also 20 minutes away, Splashdown Waterpark has all the required river rides and waterfalls, or if you prefer your waves at a distance, head into Poole (25 minutes) for harbour cruises and ferry rides to Brownsea island.
Beach lazing, windsurfing and fossil hunting are handily close by at Bournemouth (20 minutes) and along the Purbeck Heritage Coast around Studland (50 minutes). The surrounding Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve makes for fine hikes, especially when the landscape turns into vivid yellows and purples in summer.
Surrounded by the New Forest, Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst (20 minutes and half an hour) are popular hubs for bike hire and numerous cycling routes. There’s a six-mile family-friendly circuit close by around Burley (15 minutes), or for those with bigger ambitions and calf muscles, a 15-mile loop from Brockenhurst.
