Been to Holmsley for the first time this year and we were very disappointed with the facilities. The location is superb and the staff are friendly and helpful but the facilities are the worst they have been for the 20 years we have been staying there. The shower was fluctuating from lukewarm to cold with about 30 seconds of warm... More

We have just returned from a five night stay at Holmsley and as someone who had grown up in the area, I know just how beautiful the area is.Let's be honest, the New Forest is hard to beat no matter what. Added to that are the places in the near vicinity which make it a very attractive proposition for any... More

Have been to many campsites in the new forest and we have never found one as perfect as this for setting, standard of pitches or friendliness of staff. Small reception/ shop is all that you need with added bonus of takeaway food with large picnic area a outside. Will without doubt be revisiting this site. This site is excellent .!!

I was worried about using this campsite after reading the reviews on here. Stayed for the weekend, staff lovely, facilities are clean & warm, lots of space, easy access to the new forest. Don't listen to the negative comments.

We had a very good stay at Holmsley and enjoyed learning about the World War 2 history of the site ( it was an airfield) on the information boards there. There are some cycle rides to some of the best locations I have seen in the New Forest National Park. Given the location near to some nice beaches, it is... More

Went down to this site just after the bank holiday so perhaps a little quieter than some other reviews mentioned. We chose this site because it allows groups and we were three families who all wanted to pitch close together and for some reason many campsites don't seem to like this. It is not our first visit to this site... More

Was a little worried about some reviews I had read before going but I needn't have been. The site and facilities were fantastic. Fully booked but still loads of room and kids enjoyed a little bit of freedom. Can't wait to go back

We stayed at Holmsley midweek, leaving just before the hectic August bank holiday weekend. When checking in the camp assistant was really helpful in finding us a flat pitch for a tent, fairly close to the toilet block because we had 3 children with us. The pitch itself was relatively flat, altough a little stoney (head the advice on the... More

Just home from great weekend at Holmsley, arrived on Thursday and got great pitch for 3 large tents altogether. Left Monday and no pressure to leave. Most of the staff were OK, Simon on the gate could do with learning to smile and maybe not being quite so aggressive towards arrivals, first impressions? But the staff star for us was... More
