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.

A very busy site: Nice but large

We came to this site when we had just started caravanning about 11 years ago. In fact it was our first trip out with a van. Since then we have been twice more, the latest being September 2020. The thing we have noticed is that the site has become much busier. The first night we were there, it was full. The way the site has grown and been laid out it feels very crowded with little privacy. Although when we were there the site itself was not noisy, there was aircraft noise (unavoidable) and garden machinery most days (the site size must mean there is always something going on). The team of wardens were as friendly as ever and the toilet blocks and grounds were always clean and in good order. There were clear Covid19 protocols in place and definite evidence of extra cleaning and safety. Would we come again? That is hard. For us, the negatives probably outweigh the positives when there are other good sites and CLs in the area. If there was nothing else for the dates we want, then we would come back. Nothing against the site or staff, it is just not the kind of size we like.

Well travelled

Have been to this site many times but found this time grass was very untidy more like a field not been cut and in places very long. We didn't use facilities as we used our own. We didn't see much of the wardens and didn't think any extra cleaning was done around service points. There was long queues at 12 to get in although arrival was 1 .We still will be coming back next year hoping everything was due to Covid and not just using it as an excuse and the site is up to usual standard

Nice and relaxing site

We have recently returned from this site from a 2 week holiday. The weather was fantastic which helped. The site is very large but with all the walk ways through to the facility blocks it is great and also the access to the water, waste and recycling bins. The pitches are a good size with clear markings where you have to pitch although I think some more hard stands would be good as it was full and we ended up on grass and the grass had not been cut. Wardens friendly on arrival and during the stay. Toilet blocks were clean and because of covid the "band" system worked well although a few people did not take a band when entering the facilities which meant there were more than 6 in there sometimes but not all the time. The fish and chip van is amazing, coming 3 times a week and the food is excellent and well priced. There is also a stone cooked pizza van which comes too but I prefer the fish and chips. Lots to do around the area, lots of walking especially for dogs but be careful when walking in the forest as there are lots of ponies, horses, cows and donkeys and also their droppings! We kept our dogs on leads when walking there and it was fine. The beaches are great and some are dog friendly. Nice costal walks, quite flat. This is our second visit in two years because we could not see everything on the first visit. Well worth a stay and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

One of the better sites

I think that this is one of the better sites in the network. Have been before and would visit again. You can walk to Thorney Hill crossroads and get a bus into Christchurch however it runs only Mon, Wed, Friday with limited times. Last time we went they had a really useful set of directions for cycling into Christchurch via a mix of country roads and bike lanes however this is not available now and we couldn't remember the route. There is also a tea room to walk to in about 30 minutes called Robins Nest contained within a garden nursery on the road to Bransgore. Had a really good pizza from the visiting caterers to the site. Just a good clean and friendly site.
