We only stayed for two nights over a weekend but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We booked through the camping and caravan site as we are members, the couple that joined us are not and we had to make several changes to the booking but each time the staff were friendly and very helpful. When we arrived the rest of our... More

Visited Holmsley with my DofE group for two nights of camping at this site. The site seems to have been kept tidy with lots of bins and drinking water taps available, which is useful when there is weather you wouldn't want to walk in or feet a covered in blisters. Setting up out tents, we were given a vague area... More

Ok...firstly I need to admit when I visited Holmsley for a two night camping stay, this was the first time I have been camping since I was aged 12 (now 34) so wasn't quiet sure what to expect but had been talked into it by my sisters who had been there and love the 'camping thing'. The location is beautiful... More

Excellent camp site, loads of facilities, lovely surroundings and friendly staff, only a short drive from from the coast and The Tank museum. Would highly recommend the camp site to anyone, great for groups loads of space, the shop is very good and a good price. They cook fresh bread every morning, and have loads of stuff in the shop

Had a great week here over May half term. Checking in was easy we arrived at lunchtime checked in and went off to find a spot to camp. We drove round and found a good spot near to the facilities and set up. The facilities were clean and comfortable there was always hot water available and we never had to... More

For kids this a great campsite. The concrete tracks provide a great place for bikes and to play football. We went on the May bank holiday weekend. I expected it to busy. It was. In fact this is not the place for peace and quiet, over a bank holiday at least. You are nose to tail with other campers. That... More

Okay where to start. This campsite is situated in a beautiful area, when we arrived we checked in which was simple, we had decided to go a day earlier than booked which was no problem (we had rung to check). We were shown on a map the areas which we could go to (no electricity) and clearly told about the... More

We arrived after a lovely drive through beautiful scenery for a 2 night stay. After booking in at the reception area we were shown to our "Premier" pitch by a member of the team. This is where things went down hill. The site is situated on an old WW2 airfield and we were shown to an area at the side... More

We arrived around 1pm on Saturday of the may bank holiday. We found a perfect spot between trees easily. The site is very clean and well looked after. Check in was a breeze and the onsite shop is good. Although the new forest horses are beautiful, they do carry ticks. The new forest is registered by the nhs as a... More

Staff were friendly. Washroom and toilets could have been cleaner. Considering it was very busy on the site , more effort should have been made to check them more regularly. There was some kind of problem in the toilets causing a deafening noise and vibrations which was not dealt with in the 3 days we were there. Site was otherwise... More
