Campsite facilities: 600 pitches, Premium pitches available, seasonal pitches available, pre-pitched Tourers available, children's play area, baby changing facilities, disabled facilities, on-site shop, toilets & showers, launderette, recycling bins, dogs welcome.

How to get to Holmsley Caravan Park & Campsite

The campsite is on the northern side of the busy A35 Lyndhurst to Christchurch road, about 8 miles from Lyndhurst, but cannot be accessed from the Lyndhurst direction. Best access is to head for Burley and then exit the village to the southwest, heading for Thorney Hill and Bransgore.
Drive across the open heath and immediately before Thorney Hill, turn right at a small crossroads. Follow this narrow road for just under one mile, the campsite entrance is on the left.

GPS / SatNav information: the campsite entrance is at:
Lat/long. 50.791,-1.695 / OS grid ref. SU215992.

Use the satellite view map to explore the area. You can toggle between satellite and road map views, and the campsite is also covered well in Birds Eye view. The Holmsley campsite entrance should be central to the map when it loads.
Instructions for using the map can be found on the right of the page.
