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.

Great base for walking

We stayed at this site over the half term week. The site was almost full but you wouldn't have known it. The facilities are ample and sited in great positions in the site. The play area and playing field and fenced in dog walk are some of the best I have come across. As it was Halloween the wardens made a massive effort to decorate the site shop and communial areas in Halloween theme brilliant. We also visited the three tun pub for Sunday roast and sat outside to eat it in October! Highly recommend. Also had lunch in the crown and an evening meal in the woolpack all in walking distance and lovely food and atmosphere. We will be back thank you for a great half term break.

Brilliant

First time to this site, sadly for only 3 nights, but loved it. Friendly and very helpful staff. Excellent dog exercise area for our heinz 57 to let off steam before and after exploring the forest (she never tires!). Love the electric Gators quietly going about their business. Very clean and well maintained shower block. Have absolutely no complaints and will most certainly be returning next year and marking this as on of our preferred sites.

Fantastic Site

We have just spent 6 Nights at this site and found it to be peaceful, clean, welcoming and excellent value. We walked or cycled each day from the site using a leaflet purchased from the office, using quite roads or cycle tracks. The café at the station in Homesley has excellent cream teas and is not to be missed, you can walk or cycle to this from the site, about 3 miles, using the forest tracks. Phone signal and 3G not fantastic, but you can use it sometimes and I think some pitches better than others as always! Not the sites fault just the lovely area you are in! Bransgore has a small co-op which again you can walk to but this takes about 1 hour each way, it is about 3 miles on a road with a footpath. The quicker route does not have a footpath and is not advisable (we did it on a Saturday afternoon and it was dangerous!). We will be back.

Excellent welcoming peaceful site

First visit to the kite for a long weekend... had one of the well maintained serviced pitches and can not fault it! Wardens are very friendly and welcoming and lovely centenary garden with benches to enjoy a cuppa in the late summer sun. Took our 3 x dogs who enjoyed both of the two excellent dog runs... all other caravan owners were friendly and welcoming whether they had dogs or not. Fully recommend this site- was sad to leave and will definitely be back again outside school hols as timing of visit meant it was lovely and peaceful! Well located for exploring new forest and local area

Disappointing in places

We've stayed at this site once before and were more impressed then. A particular issue this time was the very poor quality of wi-fi - almost absent at our end of the site. We would have expected better coverage as this is a facility we pay extra for. The Centenery Garden was sadly neglected and the site had a very much end-of-season feel. Information in the hut was dated and far from comprehensive - the tatty and out-of-date wall map set the tone. However, the toilet blocks were very clean as usual and there was good security on the site. We wouldn't fall over ourselves to stay at this site out in future but a bit of tlc and extra wi-fi booster stations would go a long way towards improving it fairly quickly.
