Why stay here ...

Just 3 miles away from the pleasant village of Bransgore, you can find one the UK’s best caravan sites in the New Forest National Park. The caravan site in question is the New Forest Club site which was originally part of a Second World War airfield. In fact, parts of the original runway still exist and there is also a memorial to the New Forest Airfields just to the north of the caravan park, making this a very attractive destination should you be interested in war history.

Set amidst beautiful rolling countryside, New Forest Club Site has an open aspect and is home to The Club's celebratory Centenary Gardens with lovely bird life including Song Thrushes and Bullfinches. There is also an excellent dog walk plus loads of fun play equipment and a safe play field for younger visitors. The caravan site is a great base from which to explore the charming local landscapes by either foot or bike, with cycle routes starting as nearby as 200 yards. Conveniently located for visits to the busy towns of Christchurch, Poole and Bournemouth, the caravan park is also as well situated for a wealth of beaches and resorts for the perfect summer holiday.

A mobile fish and chip van visits this site. Please ask the site staff for more details.

Fantastic site all round

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to this site - the last one being with grown up children, grandsons and our dogs... what a wonderful time was had by all - from the lovely secure dog run, the childrens playground and the family friendly playing field- our 10 year old grandson couldn’t have been happier with the freedom to play in a safe environment. Lovely walks to be had directly from the site into the New Forest and we were lucky enough to see lots of horses and cattle before we had walked very far! Lovely centenary garden, fish and chip van visiting the site and friendly welcoming wardens - who could want more! Have already booked 2 x return visits in 2020!

Fantastic

Fantastic site, we stayed here for 12 nights in mid August and had a great time. Yes the site is large - it has many pitches, but you get plenty of space and we never felt cramped, every time we used the showers and toilets it was virtually empty, and always kept very clean regardless of the time of day. Great play area and footy pitch for the kids, they absolutely loved it!! The staff were excellent and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Great links to cycle routes - I love my cycling and brought a cycle map from the site shop early on, worth every penny, the whole area is great for cycling and walking. Highly recommend.

Fantastic site, lots to do for familes and dogs

We visit this site very year as its one of our favourites. Its large spacious pitches mean even when full in an August heat wave it still does not feel crowded. The playground, play field are great for kids. There are lots of kids on site and the security and safety is great for them. We also have a dog and the site has 2 good dog walk areas and is close to the Forrest and dog friendly beaches and pubs for dogs. There is a dog wash on the site too. We also use a dog day care (when going on trips that are not dog friendly) and there are lots in the New Forrest. Kids did Go Ape, Archery, Splashdown water park, Bournemouth, New Milton and Studland beaches. The facilities are always clean and even when busy the wait for showers is only a few minutes. The shop is well stocked and fish and chip van visits 3 times a week. The wardens are friendly and hard working and not overbearing with children and dogs around a busy site, just the right balance. We can't recommend this site enough.

Amazing

Wow, such an absolutely stunning site and location. We arrived on the 17th August 2019 having never visited the site or area before. The views and the local area are just amazing. You can be as active or as relaxed as you like. Great routes for walkers and cyclists. The site shop is well stocked, in fact I've never seen another site shop as well stocked as this one was. There is plenty to do out and about in the area whether its visiting the motor museum the cider farm or the local pubs or popping over to the isle of wight which is also very nice as is the caravan club site there too . The beaches are beautiful also !! Definitely this site is worth visiting. We will be back there soon :)
