Why stay here ...

Touring season dates at Black Knowl have now been extended until January 2020.

Black Knowl Club site has now been redeveloped to include a brand new toilet and shower facility with family shower rooms, 29 new hardstandings (18 of which are serviced) and improved reception and parking. We look forward to welcoming you.

Once the royal hunting forest of William the Conqueror and now a beautiful National Park, the Black Knowl (New Forest) Club Site has an open, peaceful aspect while being conveniently located within walking distance of Brockenhurst. The site is in a wonderful setting in the forest and in October at night, stags can be heard roaring in the forest, along with owls and other forest creatures. The town offers plenty of good quality restaurants, places of interest and shopping treats to keep everyone in the family happy on their holiday.

Black Knowl (New Forest) Club Site opens onto over 140 miles of lovely walking track for you to explore in the Forest whether on foot, cycle or horseback. For those with an interest in local history, The Lyndhurst Museum and Visitors' Centre will shed more than enough light on the rich and fascinating past of the Forest. Other nearby attractions include The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Exbury Gardens and The New Forest Reptile Centre. For those who dream of taking to the open sea, cruise ships can be viewed on the nearby Solent. You can reach the Isle of Wight via Lymington Ferry and visit Lepe Country Park by the sea with a cafe (seasonal and weekend openings) and children's play area and BBQ area for hire. If you fancy some retail therapy, the Southampton and Bournemouth shopping centres are within easy driving distance from the caravan park and will leave you spoilt for choice.

If you are fancying a take away, Brockenhurst has a great choice. Details of all restaurants, take aways and days out are available in our Information Room.

Great main site

This is a lovely main site in the heart of the forest. As such the entrance road is narrow (less of a problem than the what seemed to be very high ramps.) Beautiful surroundings. Apart from the ponies, cows & donkeys on the heath outside the entrance gate, saw a herd of 25 deer on morning at 0830! Have been going to new forest for very long time & never seen a herd that big so close! Site is very busy (was school summer holidays) & seemed really crowded to us (we are used to CL sites) but despite that it was surprisingly quiet. All very well organised/regimented as expected, with welcoming wardens who accomodated us even though we arrived a day early! Thank you! Flowers beautiful. Weds fish n chips great, yes bit pricey but it's a holiday! Didn't have to wait as was first to put order in, took pup for quick walk then collected on way back! Despite our preference for CL sites we will be back as location really can't be beaten!

Highly recommended

First site visited as a new member of caravan club. Very impressed. Very friendly, helpful warden. Children loved cycling and scooting on the site and the fact the ponies congregated just outside the site. Easy walk into village and to catch train from Brockenhurst (we went to Bournemouth to see the annual air festival). Last couple of miles of approach is not straightforward so make sure you follow the instructions given (they are very good). Toilet/shower facilities good and well kept. Excellent for families.

A good base for coast and countryside

Visited this site many times in past thirty years but this is the first time we have visited mid summer. We have to say we prefer visiting in the spring and autumn as there is a much wider choice of pitches and you don't feel so crammed in. I have to say though, although nearly full or full on most days, whilst we were there for the two weeks, it was surprisingly quiet on site apart from the rather annoying morning mowing of grass as soon as a nearby pitch became vacant. Just a nuisance when you have just put the washing on line or sitting out to relax- I know it has to be done but it sometimes seemed a bit obsessive. The wardens are super efficient and the toilet block kept immaculate. You can walk into Brockenhurst across the Heath and enjoy good pub food at The Snake Catcher, fabulous cakes at the bakery in the High Street or a very good lunch or coffee at The Terrace as well as many other great eateries . Further afield we love a trip into Lymington on a Saturday and to visit the market. There are plenty of walks and cycle rides from the site and on a Wednesday we enjoy freshly cooked fish and chips at the site, though get there when the Brown's van arrives at 6pm if you don't like to queue. All in all a great site for a mix of coast and countryside. We will return in the autumn and we now see the site is open until January.

Nice enough considering it’s the Summer Holidays

Site nice and clean with a good variety of pitches. Wardens are lovely and very friendly. Unfortunately it has been pretty much full for the 2 weeks we have been here with lots of children having fun (bikes etc) but it is the summer holidays so i guess that’s to be expected. Toilet block is lovely and new but water pressure is poor in showers. Location is fabulous - right in the middle of the New Forest. Browns Fish & Chip van visits on a Wednesday but don’t bother - they are very expensive and seem to run out if everything! We waited over an hour for ours as you queue first (30mins) and then they cook exactly what you’ve ordered! (If they have anything left which is highly doubtful) which took another 30mins - even then they weren’t very good. Unfortunately no other food offerings (like pizza). It’s a 30 minute walk to Brockenhurst where the nearest pub is so site is only really ok if you cook every night (which isn’t my idea of a holiday). Would we come back?... Maybe. Not our favourite site by any stretch.

Lovely clean site

Stayed for one night before my nephews wedding and thought it was a lovely clean site well kept. The wardens were extremely friendly and helpful, marking pitches on a map that were currently free and in a sunny position - saved having to drive round site a few times. On leaving they had a problem with a broken down caravan on a bend , they were helping sort this out but kept in radio contact with staff on site so we could be told when it was safe to leave.
