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 Hampshire caravanning 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.

Very pleased with our first visit to this site

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
This was our first visit to this particular site and we loved it. We only stayed two nights because it was a last minute booking due to issues on another site, however we thought the location was beautiful. Upon arrival it was mega busy (approx 92 arrivals due that day) so we had to queue for quite some time, however the wardens were doing their best and coped very well with the pressure. They were very pleasant people and in my opinion, did a great job. Yes, the site is pretty big (I think around 275 or so pitches) but it is flat and the pitches are well maintained. The toilet blocks etc were clean and tidy. My only negative point about the site is that TV, phone and internet is virtually non-existent. Some might say that is a positive!!! Overall, the location is fabulous and the good points outweigh the bad and we would love to return one day!

New Forest Delight

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
Our first visit to this area made all the more enjoyable by being on a site run by friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them- not that we had problems - just simple questions like where to catch the bus…. all dealt with cheerily despite not being officially on duty. Arrival was a process which had to be followed understandably in these COVID times but was done efficiently and speedily. Wifi issues yes but fortunately we weren’t relying on good connections but can see why some would find this annoying. A great area for us which we explored by bike on many of the country lanes. The open top bus tour was ideal for us as rely on public transport or our bikes to get around. Fab fish and chip van was a treat. Lots left still to do so will return.

Not really for us

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
We were spending a week on the IOW and travelling via Lymington so this site seemed a useful two night stop over. The site staff were friendly and professional when we booked in. This is a sprawling site with getting on for 300 pitches so would not normally be our choice, more of a holiday site rather than a touring site. It is also a bit remote if you don't have your own transport. Didn't use the toilet blocks but it was good to see two open grill motorhome waste points. One of the real disappointments was the limited number of hardstanding pitches. First time for a long time we have had to use a grass pitch. Fortunately it was quite firm and despite some rain remained so. Don't know about shopping but on the Saturday my Sister picked us up ( from the entrance I hasten to add!) to take us out to lunch. We went to the Pebble of the Beach Restaurant at Barton on Sea. Lovely meal so happy to recommend.

Not what we are used to.

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site

Arrived on site at 1.45pm and joined the queue to book in which we did not have a problem with but to be told quite forcefully to stay in our vehicle until we booked in was rather harsh especially after a long journey. There were only two caravans in front of us but it still took over 30 minutes for us to be allowed on site . Having been to this site several times we were rather disappointed at the state of the pitches especially the grass ones, which we prefer, Judging by the length of the grass they had not been cut for some time. The hedges and grass pathways are also looking neglected and were overgrown and in fact, unfortunately the site was looking altogether quite sad and unkept . On previous visits the site has always been well kept ! The upside to this is that one does not have to listen to the constant noise of the lawn mower, strimmer and hedge trimmer!! Site staff always looked and appeared to be rather glum which is not usual for this or any other club site that we have been on, My guess is that they are suffering the stress of managing 'covid' rules, which are much stricter here than the two previous sites we have been on on this trip. The office/ shop not opening until 10am is also rather unhelpful. Not withstanding the above we still enjoyed our stay and will come back again and hopefully the site it will be back to its usual high standard and the staff will be happy and smiling again.

Great place for our first outing as Caravaners!

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
This was our first time out caravanning (July 2021) and site was very good, staff friendly and helpful. Pitch was hardstanding and once we had the right hooks to hit into the ground it was very easy to secure our awning down! Shop well stocked. Toilets etc clean and tidy.
