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.

Despite the Weather .... fantastic

We stayed here 2 weeks ago, from the moment we arrived we could not have had a better greeting. The warden was friendly, and extremely helpful regarding the pitches as stormy weather was expected, very much appreciated. We had 2 dogs with us and the facilities for the dogs was fantastic to the little area for late night outings before bed, they soon got use to why they were in the area. The main walking part on site was fantastic and our boys loved getting out there ! Pathways kept mown down for walking around while they scampered about with the knowledge they couldn’t get out of the area. Walking in this area is great. Local supermarkets just down the road and lots of public houses and restaurants all dog friendly. The shower block was kept very clean and warm. There was a large children’s playground area and again very secure, although we didn’t have children with us but can see that they are well catered for. We will definitely visit here again ...

Don't be put off by the size of this site

Good size well laid out pitches and site layout with plenty of choice of where to set yourself up in one of the sub-sections all fittingly named after aircraft. We were initially a little concerned at the size (275 pitches) as we normally search out the smaller Club Sites and were hesitant about booking. However, all our fears were allayed as soon as we arrived. The sub-sections all work brilliantly and our choice of pitch gave us exactly what we were after and look for on a site. The site is well maintained with excellent and clean facilities, friendly wardens and assistant wardens and plenty of space on your own pitch and generally around the site to meander or gaze at the stars. Excellently located for the 'Hop on Hop off' bus tours (summer period only). We used public transport or walked everywhere which all worked perfectly for us (cycle tracks nearby if we had wanted to use them). All in all a really super site and we had an excellent week away (chose quieter week after schools had gone back, site was almost full if not full for the duration of our visit and has plenty of facilities for the family if that's what you're after) and will visit again.

Fantastic site all round

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to this site - the last one being with grown up children, grandsons and our dogs... what a wonderful time was had by all - from the lovely secure dog run, the childrens playground and the family friendly playing field- our 10 year old grandson couldn’t have been happier with the freedom to play in a safe environment. Lovely walks to be had directly from the site into the New Forest and we were lucky enough to see lots of horses and cattle before we had walked very far! Lovely centenary garden, fish and chip van visiting the site and friendly welcoming wardens - who could want more! Have already booked 2 x return visits in 2020!

Fantastic

Fantastic site, we stayed here for 12 nights in mid August and had a great time. Yes the site is large - it has many pitches, but you get plenty of space and we never felt cramped, every time we used the showers and toilets it was virtually empty, and always kept very clean regardless of the time of day. Great play area and footy pitch for the kids, they absolutely loved it!! The staff were excellent and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Great links to cycle routes - I love my cycling and brought a cycle map from the site shop early on, worth every penny, the whole area is great for cycling and walking. Highly recommend.

Fantastic site, lots to do for familes and dogs

We visit this site very year as its one of our favourites. Its large spacious pitches mean even when full in an August heat wave it still does not feel crowded. The playground, play field are great for kids. There are lots of kids on site and the security and safety is great for them. We also have a dog and the site has 2 good dog walk areas and is close to the Forrest and dog friendly beaches and pubs for dogs. There is a dog wash on the site too. We also use a dog day care (when going on trips that are not dog friendly) and there are lots in the New Forrest. Kids did Go Ape, Archery, Splashdown water park, Bournemouth, New Milton and Studland beaches. The facilities are always clean and even when busy the wait for showers is only a few minutes. The shop is well stocked and fish and chip van visits 3 times a week. The wardens are friendly and hard working and not overbearing with children and dogs around a busy site, just the right balance. We can't recommend this site enough.
