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 Campsite 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 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. 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.

Visit early May 2022

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
CAMC New Forest Bransgore, Hampshire We (2 persons and a dog) visited for 4 nights at the beginning of May 2022. The site is large and we had plenty of space. The facilities are very good and kept that way by the site team. We were very pleased with the dog paddock which is large, secure, has a mixture of rough and smooth areas, and the dogs can roam free within it. The walk from site is at the side of the road until you reach the open area of the new forest. No public footpaths adjacent to the site. We did a walk via new forest from the site to the old station tea rooms at Holmsley. Very nice food. To get to it, walk past the Holmsley campsite through the forest to Holmsley mill. Turn left and follow the path for about half a mile. Turn first right on the path to the old railway line. Turn right on this path to the old station. We also walked into Bransgore but had to use road edges and pavements. It is a pity there are no official footpaths in this direction because as the crow flies Bransgore is not too distant. A walk to the pub is an expedition. I can recommend The coffee house cafe in Bransgore. It is opposite the co-op. Very friendly and food is not expensive. It supports the community. The New Forest site is perfect for cyclists and those on 4 wheels.

Lots to like it's why we keep coming back..

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
We have used Centenary since it opened as it's location is perfect for us for visiting family. The site planting has matured so much over the years and most of the time the site is very popular. It's a short journey to Milford on Sea with fantastic walks towards Lymington and great views of the Isle of Wight. Christchurch is nearby too. You can park in Somerford at Stewarts Garden centre free all day and enjoy award winning cakes in the cafe one of the best you will find and catch one of the frequent buses into town or Bournemouth just outside next to Sainsburys. Aldi and Lidl are a couple of minutes from there too. Castlepoint has a superb retail park max parking 4 hours with one of the largest M&S stores in the country alongside Next and other major retailers. It's in the New Forest so explore it and yes there are obviously lots of dogs on site and sometimes lots of children too. There is a brand new playground this year near the entrance. There is a lot to like although some free wifi would be nice but you will find Stewarts has excellent wifi and coffee two for one between 9am and 10am Mon to Friday.

Lovely location but some major problems

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
The location in the New Forest is lovely. Although please note there are no views of the forest from the site due to it needing to be surrounded by large hedges, and it is a very long walk up a road with no pavements to get into the forest by foot so you need a car, or to be willing to take a motorhome off site, in order to access the forest. The facilities were very clean. The pizza takeaway van is to be recommended. Unfortunately we had a few unhappy experiences during our stay. The wardens were very unwilling to help (to the point of being abrupt and dismissive) when we requested our friend with mobility issues needed to be dropped off by car to our pitch when he visited us. They were also very unhelpful to the point of being obstructive when we enquired about the possibility of a slightly later check out time on the day we were leaving - even though the site was extremely quiet and there were very few arrivals due in. They said it was not their policy to offer this, even though it would obviously have been no problem at all. I know it is not to be assumed that a site will be able to offer a later check out time, but on this occasion it was dismissed in a very 'jobs worth' way with no willingness to be at all flexible or accommodating. It is a very expensive site to stay on (compared to other CMC sites), so we do not plan to visit again. We will find one of the other sites in the New Forest next time.

Beautiful site that is kept spotless

New Forest Centenary Club Campsite
This site is perfect in almost every way, the only negative, and it’s really not enough to knock off any stars, but may well do if things don’t change because it’s something that is becoming more and more important to more and more of us, like it or not……..the WiFi. I don’t know how good the WiFi is because Quite frankly I was not prepared to pay £3.50p per night for a single device, to me, that is extortionate and I cannot believe it costs a fraction of that to supply it. Other than that, it’s a lovely site.
