If a stay in a tranquil woodland setting that’s just a short jaunt to the beach sounds like the perfect short break or family holiday, look no further than the award-winning Holmsley Caravan and Camping site.
Situated on the southernmost tip of the New Forest, this picturesque site has the best of both worlds. There are acres of woodlands and grassland for the kids to explore and the unspoilt beach at Barton on Sea is just a ten minute drive away (or a 30 minute drive will take you right into Bournemouth).
Next to the site there is a large heathland which is fantastic for a spot of nature watching. Free-roaming ponies cattle and deer to provide wonderful memories for all the family.
The onsite shop sells a range of groceries and camping essentials and the nearby village of Burley has a range of tearooms and pubs.
Toilets, showers and a launderette are all available at this gold-standard David Bellamy Conservation site.
Local attractions include Furzey Gardens with its rare plant collection, The New Forest Reptile Centre and The New Forest Wildlife Park.
