Just 3 miles away from the pleasant village of Bransgore, you can find one the UK’s best campsites in the New Forest National Park. The New Forest Club Campsite was originally part of a Second World War airfield and parts of the original runway still exist. 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 Campsite 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. This Hampshire campsite 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 site is also as well situated for a wealth of beaches and resorts along with trips to nearby Dorset, for the perfect summer holiday.

A mobile fish and chip van visits this site. Please ask the site staff for more details.

Excellent Site for the New Forest and South Coast

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
This a great site from which to explore the New Forest and South Coast from the Southampton estuary to Bournemouth It is also a short drive to the national motor museum at Beaulieu. We love going to Avon Beach and the Noisy Lobster restaurant. Southbourne Beach is also good fun with the SoBo cafe complex. The Three Tuns does a great pint and good food. The site is excellent for families with a good playpark and the staff are very friendly.

Great Location

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
This is a lovely site. The pitches are well spaced so it doesn't feel crowded. We liked this site because it is easy to explore both the New Forest and the Hampshire Coast. Because it was raining, we tended to go to seaside towns. The walk from Keyhaven to Lymington is one of our favourites, particularly if you're a birdwatcher. Good pubs in Lymington for refreshment. Shingle beach at Highcliffe is worth a visit - or a sandy beach at Boscombe for a walk into Bournemouth. As ever, the staff are great!

Between the Sea and Forest

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
Now I never would use a site like this in August ,let alone a Bank Holiday weekend,but as family where in area,we did. Even though the site was full,it coped admirably,so credit to all the staff here.As my title,it is around 8 miles to Avon Beach and Mudeford Car Parks for beach goes,and same distance to Lyndhurst,with all New Forest on its doorstep. Pitches do vary in size,we had a lovely corner plot,but other pitches seemed tightly packed in.Woodland walks are doable,passed the Homsley Campsite. One point to say,if you pitch near the road,you hear the rumble of cars over a cattle grid,and a pop up campsite appeared on the field opposite the site,so it would be possible to hear noise on your pitch.Certainly it would not stop a return,I would just prefer non bank holiday weekends.

A lovely stay

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
We had booked 4 nights at the New Forest Centenary Club Campsite from the 9th October, and this was the 4th time we have stayed here at various times of the year, and as always it was a pleasure. We'd like to say a big thank you to the wardens who were friendly and very helpful. We needed to print a couple of documents for work while there and they were very accommodating. Then with strong winds on the morning of our departure, we asked if we could stay another night to, rather than tow our caravan home in high winds, and this was no problem - obviously this would have been different in high season, but it was most welcome in this instance. Thank you for a pleasurable 5 night stay.

Good site but poor wifi

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
We stayed here mid September and found it generally to our liking. The site is very well maintained and the staff are helpful and pleasant. As motorhomers, we hired a car for a few days from Enterprise which was a good idea for visiting New Forest towns etc. Major drawback however was pretty much non existent wifi and no phone signal with EE. The site advertises as having the new club wifi but it's not so. The only wifi is the hotspot at the site office but even there, the signal was so weak it took me 45 minutes to download a newspaper. The Premium Wifi may have been stronger but this involves a daily/weekly/monthly charge which is quite unjustified in today's world ( good quality wifi free of any charge on all Camping and Caravanning Club sites). Nearby Lyndhurst and Christchurch well worth visiting. Also for lovely beach, use carpark at Mudeford beach (suitable for motorhome parking) and esplanade/beach walks with range of eating places.
