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.

Brilliant Halloween stay, already booked for next year !

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
Love visiting this site in the beautiful new forest and near to home, so not far to travel either. Arrived on Friday 29th October to find site decorated with many Halloween decorations and lights, and all the wardens dressed up, even a photo booth with free photos, and party food in reception πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŽƒπŸŽƒ Such a shame site unable to stay open all year due to short sighted council not allowing this !! Visited a few times this year and love going to this site, so clean and well maintained, lovely pitches and facilities already booked for next Halloween and will be booking many more trips to this lovely site next year. Also so near to visit many places Burley, Christchurch, Bournemouth to mention a few Be back again soon πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Nice well maintained site

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
We stayed for four nights in October on a serviced pitch, this was our second visit but the first time mid week and not just a quick weekend break. Arrival and check in was hassle free and the wardens friendly and very helpful, and remained that way throughout our stay. The site itself is a very high standard and although we used our own facilities during the stay we did check out the toilets and showers, everything was spotless. We took advantage of the Chilli van and the Fish & Chips, both extremely tasty and good value for money. Lots of walks and cycling right on your doorstep and if you are interested in World War 2 history, especially airfields, this is the place for you. We found lots of evidence of the wartime airfield, including lots of items hidden away of the beaten track. We will definitely return.

Good site BUT

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
We visit this site at least twice per year, usually for 2 weeks at a time. Good facilities, good wardens, well kept site, everything we have gone to expect of the club. Now the BUT. It is becoming increasingly annoying and to be perfectly honest disgusting the way other members with dogs seem to deem it acceptable to allow their β€œbest friend” to foul in any place they choose. This includes the grass between pitches or behind other people’s vans. It got to the point that two people came out of their vans let the dog do it’s motions behind our van, admittedly clear up(which incidentally still leaves some deposit) snd go back to their van. Bearing in mind this is right opposite the dog walk. Anyone, including children can get dog mess on them just by walking or sitting on the grass. Urine, has the same effect. It is completely unacceptable behaviour to put others through this disgusting habit. This is not exercising your dog, it’s allowing it to do a toilet. The club should really clamp down on this disgusting behaviour, believe it or not, there are people who do not have dogs and do not want to have to keep looking out for others peoples disgusting mess. It’s about time people started to act responsibly with their pets, even to the point of not leaving pets unattended in vans while they go out and enjoy themselves. This is not confined to this site.

Great site, but not the best location for us

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
Stayed here two nights in October 2021, It's a shame the fish and chip van only visits on one day a week (I think), so you can easily miss out. We moved from here from to the Black Knowl site, which for us is better located as you can commence severly stunning walks directly from the site. So Black Knowl will be our first choice next year! There were cycles available to hire outside reception (all done by an App) Several non-electric and only one electric. The barrier facility is a joke, because when you leave you have to deposit your fob in a rotten old red box with an unlocked lid, so anyone could retrieve a key from it and would be able to operate the incoming and outgoing barriers. At least Black Knowl had a steel box with a narrow opening

Summer Break 2021

New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site
We stopped here from 17th to 24th September , absolutely fantastic and the wardens work so hard from clean toilets and showers to caring for the grass and flowers. Thank you so much we've booked for next year already.
