Why stay here ...

Just 3 miles away from the pleasant village of Bransgore in the New Forest National Park, New Forest Club Site 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.

Why

When we arrived we were told it was so busy they only had 4 pitches left so we duly rocked up on a grass pitch near the road only to find next day that there were probably 100 unused pitches at the top of the site , please explain

Too big for us

We have just left this site today, we got lost on the way in & had to ring the site for directions, we have a 26ft motorhome with a tow car & getting totally lost around the small village roads became very stressful very quickly. The warden was very helpful & guided us in very calmly, she was very friendly & jovial when we finally got to the site.(although her colleague was a bit too quick to point out the instructions for the route in for my liking). The site is very large, much larger than we were expecting & full to overflowing, it is far too large for our liking so we did not really enjoy our stay, we expected the WIFI on such a large busy site to be at least useable but it wasn't ! I'm sure that a lot of people love this site, however, I am not one of them & would not return.

Lovely setting

This is a beautiful site with friendly staff , but we were unlucky the site was busy we had to have a grass pitch next to the road which was very noisy. Only stayed 3 nights but enjoyed our stay. Plenty of dog walking the site has a nice one . A lovely 50 minutes walk to the village nice pub good food friendly locals . 7 minutes away is the Sammy Miller motor cycle museum well worth a visit. Would recommend site but keep away from pitches near the road .

Peace and quiet spoilt by gardening machinery

Thoroughly enjoyed our 10 nights on the site. Minor irritations were - 1. many of the toilet / shower cubicles were closed for the majority of our stay, even though the site was very busy, needed to get in early in the morning if you don’t want to queue for shower. 2. One day was completely ruined by landscaping/ gardening machinery 10.30 - 2.30 non stop, petrol swimmers on hedges, followed by grass cutting, just in our area. Would be nice if they restricted it to an hour per area of the site. Very friendly staff, very clean site. Shop OK for emergencies unless you have a dietary requirement, no dairy free milk. High turnover of caravans and motor homes.. excellent for dog owners. Will probably be back.
