Overview

Beach and forest – the best of both worlds

Situated in the most southern area of the New Forest, the Holmsley Caravan and Camping Park is ideally situated for your seaside break, being just 10 minutes drive from the unspoilt beach at Barton on Sea. Combining the best of the forest and the Hampshire south coast, this award-winning campsite has acres of woodlands and grassland for kids to explore and is just a short drive from the wonderful beaches of Bournemouth and Christchurch. In the summer months Ranger Activities are available to teach the whole family more about life in the forest, and the New Forest’s famous ponies are regularly seen grazing just outside the campsite. With lots of local attractions and close to picturesque villages and thriving seaside towns, Holmsely is the ideal campsite for people with a range of interests. There is also a takeaway and shop on site offering a good range of groceries for visitors to the campsite. Opening times may vary throughout the season.

Too many people crammed into site with no organisation. Was placed in ring of other campers. Too greedy on number of pitches. Would be a lovely site if organised and spaces out.

This review is for Holmsley - New Forest

This is a beautiful campsite and it's a real shame they are no wardens keeping an eye on the campers, we had trouble with a family playing rounders and the ball was constantly been hit at other tents and caravans,and more importantly it could have really hurt someone,I didn't see one person to ask for assistance in the whole time we were there! We have stayed here on many of the school holidays and this have never been an issue before! There was always a friendly face wearing a green top to speak to people to keep everyone happy and safe, I am very sad to say we will not be coming back

This review is for Holmsley - New Forest

I booked a hard standing pitch with electric in November 2015 for the Witsun Week 2016. The week before I contacted the site to check all was okay as their reviews were not good I was told booking was confirmed, entrance was good and somebody would be pitching us as they were very busy friday/saturday. On our arrival it was clear it wasnt going to be good. We went to book in and then waited for 40 mins for our pitcher who never came back. We then got a nice man but when he showed us the pitch we wasnt happy - it wasnt hard standing as you would expect from other sites we have visited. It was park on the road and pitch on the grass which was very uneven and not possible. We then complained but due to the busy time no other pitch was available and hard standing or grass was the same price was the answer. We then see a grass pitch behind the motor home waste drain. The man offered us an extension to our electricial hook up as it didnt quite reach. We were given the wrong information by staff opens 9-9 every day but no it does not, it closes at 5 on a sunday and its actually 8-8. Also on other information some of the staff were rude. We had a lovely holiday but I do think you need to know when booking hard standing it is not really what tourers would expect ie: concrete, gravel, grass? We also see the premier pitches and they were awful I am just glad I did not book that. I even see somebody pitch the caravan completely on the road with the awning being held down by rocks. The toilet block was clean and the bins collected regularly. We will be booking a different site for our next New Forest trip and we have never left a site and said we would not go back but on this occasion we did. It was disappointing as we as a couple have visited the New Forest many times and wanted to experience it with our children but needed electric so booked Holmsley. It was also sad that the horses/cows didnt come through like other sites.
