The camp itself seemed very crowded. Personally , I would have liked to have been given a pitch rather than told you can camp anywhere and then left to drive around the camp looking for a spot to pitch your tent. We did find a quiet part, but the main part seemed really noisy (we could hear some woman cackling... More

Chose this weekend to coincide with Bournemouth Air Festival. Being the remains of an old WW2 air base, lots of extant roadways for kids to ride around on their bikes. The new forest is right outside, so great for easy access. Ablutions clean & well maintained. Mostly non-electric pitches, so plan ahead. Shop had the basics plus things like gas... More

We only stayed one night. Arrived and checked in quickly and staff very friendly and helpful. As others have mentioned, no set pitches so we drove around until we found somewhere we were happy with. The whole site was very busy. Great if you like lots going on and others to chat to. Atmosphere was friendly and plenty of other... More

Ok here is our review of Holmsley Campsite. Firstly if you are expecting this site to be like the standard of a Camping And Caravan Club (CCC) site then you will be really REALLY disappointed. For example they don't have the 6M rule between tents and caravans. There are NO pitches it is a case of camp anywhere you want.... More

We found this site online as I was looking to book 2 EHU caravan pitches, one for us, one for our friends. When I phoned, they told me that the didn't have any EHU pitches available unless we booked Super size Premium pitches. So that's what we did, paying extra for our premium pitch. When we arrived mid afternoon we... More

On the plus side, the staff were friendly and helpful, the toilets clean and sufficient in number and it's in a good location. On the minus side, there appears to be scant regard for safety, people way to close and vehicles travelling too fast all over the shop. We were there in August and there were many families, some of... More

Really nice campsite in the lovely surroundings of the New Forest. Nice staff, clean facilities. Would recommend. Could choose where you pitched which was great. Can use own barbecue. Well stocked shop on site and some good walks from the campsite.

Went with a group of friends and had a really nice stay. Lots of space and well located for excursions. It's a family site, without any pubs nearby which is a shame, but for cycling and walking it's really well situated. I'd strongly recommend Trax Bike HIre, they provide good mountain bikes, with all the bells and whistles, and even... More

We had a lovely weekend as usual! The campsite is very well maintained and care is taken over the toilet and shower facilities. The staff were all lovely and friendly who are full of local knowledge. The campsite itself was very busy however with such large grounds and the landscaping this didn't impose on us. On site there are handy... More
