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.

If only people followed the fules

We stayed here at the beginning of October for only our second trip of the year. This is one of our favourite sites and have visited on a few occasions. Nothing much has changed facilities wise which for the size of the site are pretty much upto scratch. To be honest, all good as far as the club and staff are concerned, but I do wonder what planet some fellow members live on. Having a young child with us for a couple of nights we had a need to use the family bathroom. On one evening, we found that some individual had actually taken their prized pooch into the family bathroom, washed and showered it in the bath, and then just left it in the most disgusting state with pet hairs all around. I have absolutely no issues with pets, having had dogs of my own in the past, but, there are dog washing facilities provided on site. Why on earth do we have to be subjected to such disgusting behaviour. I’m sorry if poor little pooch might have to suffer a cold water shower, but such is life. If you don’t like it get some nice warm water from your van and clean it in your space. It would also be very helpful if said pooches were walked in the dog walk area, rather than pop out of your van, get them to mess of others pitches then back to their own pitch. I sound very anti dog here, but actually I’m very anti owners that do not respect other humans. Your dog is your problem, don’t try and make it mine. In a nutshell, site great, site staff great, a few people ruin it for the majority.

Enjoyable stay....

A late availability & forecast of reasonable weather made us decide to try out the New Forest & we were pleasantly surprised with this spacious site & friendly wardens. Facilities were clean with a 1-way system in place. The site is flat, however the surrounding area can be hilly & cycling trails through the forest can be tricky on the loose gravel in places. Lovely site split into several areas named after the aircraft that had been part of the WW2 effort & that were based at the 12 airfields in & around the surrounding areas. A memorial of which is close by. Ideal for walking, cycling & plenty of local attractions to consider. Would definitely be somewhere to return with our grandchildren. The New Forest Pizza Company visit the site & are highly recommended.

Edit: stayed early September

Great Site with Great Staff

Stayed here late September and had a great time. The staff were brilliant, the location is excellent and the site is really well laid out, with a feel of a smaller site, despite it being one of the larger ones. We note that a fish & chip van visits site, but on the nights we stayed, there was also a Pizza Van - we tried their food and can highly recommend it! Good food, and great value. There are several walks from site into the New Forest - a circular walk to Holmsley is worth it as there's an excellent tea room at the Old Station, which is worth a stop over.

Great location

A site we've visited a good number of times, although this was our first post-covid visit. Lots of work had been done to make the site feel very safe, and to keep it feeling safe, even though its big and busy. Thank you wardens, really appreciate all your efforts. This site is a fantastic location. You can walk into the forest from the site. Or you can drive to the coast in 10 minutes.

Nice site, good location - but a gsm/4G dead zone

Nice setting plenty of space; quiet - we never noticed any aircraft nose given Bournemouth airport is not that far away Good facilities and well organised to be Covid-Secure Great Location for ease of access from M27 and well located for cycling; walking and ease of access to Christchurch, Bournemouth, Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst & Lymington BUT absolutely zero mobile phone signal (data, phone and sms) - probably a coverage issue within the New Forest and little the site can do about it
