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 playing games, we didn't see that much of them :)
We tried out the take away which is fine if you fancy a night off the cooking and are happy with pizza's, chips, nuggets etc...
Beautiful surroundings and your tents aren't burgled by the ponies
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Holmsley is a campsite steeped in history. Occupying part of what used to be Holmsley Airfield in the Second World War, it is one of 12 wartime airfields and Advanced Landing Grounds in the New Forest. Indeed, the aircraft hard standings and taxiways are now the campsite roads and parking spots! The campsite is close to the rural villages of Burley and Bransgore, with shops including a bakery, chemist, and chip shop. The site is predominantly grass, meaning there is a lot of space for the children to play. It also offers direct access to forest walks and safe cycling tracks; ideal for exploring the local flora and fauna with the whole family. Onsite there is a fully equipped shop that sells a wide range of groceries, camping essentials and games to ensure that your holiday runs as smoothly as possible. There is also an excellent take away; perfect after a busy day exploring the forest and when you want to put your feet up in your tent and relax. Opening time will vary throughout the season. This campsite offers both hardstanding and grass pitches with the opportunity for electric hook-up. There are also toilets and wash facilities available on site. ... more less
