Very basic but very we'll run camp site. Had showers and toilets. Was a little bit annoyed as thought they would reserve a pitch for you (considering we booked online a few days before and ask for specifics about our tent, but they do not, also the price includes your car). Arrived and site was full had to basically camp... More

I stayed here in a tent with my husband last weekend, my cousin and her family also camped, and my parents were in a motorhome and dog. We stayed in an area of the site called Plain Heath, it was very flat there and some shade, as we came during a heat wave. Easy check in, got tags for the... More

Had a wonderful greeting and welcome. We arrived on a Tuesday (early June) and the site was not very busy at all. This site is well spread out with no designated pitches, its a free for all. Great while it was quiet, but come Friday when the weekenders arrived things got a bit close and hectic. Back to normal by... More

Second stay here, first time was with a dog and tent and was fantastic. Second stay 5 years on in a camper van, with 2 dogs and a 20 month old was equally as good. Lovely campsite and great facilities, although we are pretty local (Christchurch) it's nice to enjoy our beautiful local surroundings and Holmsley truly is lovely

have stayed here twice now - nice clean showers and toilets. would have got 4-5 stars but I can confirm with some of the other reviewers that the shop often closes early and take away services are sometimes not available as advertised on the shop front. The prices have also gone up a lot in a relatively short time.

Stayed 3 nights (Monday-Thursday) Staff friendly & helpful, showers&toilets always clean. When one block closes for cleaning you can always use another block. Shop onsite for essentials, if looking for a supermarket there is a coop in Bransgore, 10 min drive away where there are several pubs, fish&chip shop, bakery, butchers&pet store. You can hire bicycles in Burley. The camp... More

It is unacceptable that the gates are locked from 10.30PM till 7AM with absolutely no exception. We went out for a meal to meet up with some friends who were local. They gave one of us a lift back in their car but didn't notice the sign saying gates would be locked. they dropped us off then stopped to use... More

We spent a couple of nights at Holmsley, a group of 22 made up of 11 kids aged 5-9 and 11 Adults. We were greeted and checked in by friendly, helpful staff. Good facilities with plenty of hot water. Perfect site for the children who spent most of the weekend exploring on their bikes, messing about in the stream and... More

We stayed at Holmsley over the bank holiday weekend (24th-27th) May. Well we were meant to stay on Sat 24th but they couldn't accept us as the pitches were waterlogged. They obviously cant help the weather but we were disappointed that this judgement call was only made at 10.30 am on the day we were meant to arrive and were... More
