We have just returned from seven nights at Holmsley. Previously we have visited as a couple with the family dog but this time bought our rabble of four children with us! Brilliant stay. The staff could not have helped more, even coming out of the busy reception area to help us find the perfect pitch! It is true you can... More

I don't think that we are the target market for this campsite; a couple looking for a quiet night in the new forest with our campervan. With hindsight we probably were asking for too much in such a busy season, but this was horrible. Like most campsites in the New Forest you cannot book for one night, so we paid... More

We have just returned from 4 nights in the new forest , on arrival check in was swift and smooth, you will probably need to book in advance as when we arrived the "fully booked " sign was out. We were staying in a tent with electrical and were shown a couple of locations to choose from which was nice.... More

We have just returned from a long weekend at Holmsley. It was my first time at a campsite and i was very impressed. It was fab value for money and very well maintained with great facilities. We stayed in a motorhome so i cant comment on if you were staying in a tent. We had a premium pitch and despite... More

It has everything you need and if you have forgotten anything the shop probably has it. It wasn't full when we where there so no strain on the facilities. However I could see it being a little bit 'cozy' when all 600 pitches are in use. The staff are very helpful. The ground is very hard so rock pegs are... More

Site is very well maintained, staff extremely friendly and the onsite shop is so so handy. The showers/ toilet block is very clean, remember to bring 20p if you... More

We are a family of 4 (two young girls aged 6 and 4) who camped at Holmsley in July 2015. We are regular campers at the New Forest and look to go to a different site each year. This year we chose Holmsley and we're really glad we did. We should state that we arrived and stayed before the English... More

We started our journey just before 18:00hrs round the M25, down the length of the M3 and onto the M27 westbound, on a Friday evening so expected a looonnnngggg journey, especially as weather was very good but journey went very well. We arrived on site at 20:00 having driven via Lyndhurst through some beautiful scenery, and the welcome we received... More

Decided to do two nights camping and chose this site as it's well known in the area. The site uses an area that was once used as airfields during WWII so there is a mixture of grass and concrete as you drive around the site. During quieter periods they are relaxed about where you pitch. The staff are very friendly... More

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
