2 nights here in our motorhome was more than enough. No dedicated hard standing pitches, it is no more than the road you are told to pitch on, very poor. You can tell this used to be an old WW2 air base and looking at...More

What an amazing campsite! Absolutely loved it! Went over in bank holiday, drenched and attempts of making tent in wind and rain was horrible but then we managed at the end... the site had hot drinks and food on site, which was very very handy...More

Holmsley is a campsite steeped in history. Occupying part of what used to be Holmsley Airfield in the Second World War, it is one of 12 wartime airfields and Advanced Landing Grounds in the New Forest. ...More Indeed, the aircraft hard standings and taxiways are now the campsite roads and parking spots! The campsite is close to the rural villages of Burley and Bransgore, with shops including a bakery, chemist, and chip shop. The site is predominantly grass, meaning there is a lot of space for the children to play. It also offers direct access to forest walks and safe cycling tracks; ideal for exploring the local flora and fauna with the whole family. Onsite there is a fully equipped shop that sells a wide range of groceries, camping essentials and games to ensure that your holiday runs as smoothly as possible. There is also an excellent take away; perfect after a busy day exploring the forest and when you want to put your feet up in your tent and relax. Opening time will vary throughout the season. This campsite offers both hardstanding and grass pitches with the opportunity for electric hook-up. There are also toilets and wash facilities available on site. Less

Hi, Yes they do, there’s a small charge for freezing them, but you can also hire some as well with a small deposit.
