Discover Campsites in Hampshire
If you’re itching for some time away before Christmas, or are planning your adventures for 2017, it is the perfect time to take a look at the amazing campsites and sightseeing opportunities which we have right on our doorstep!
Where to Start?
As many of you will already know, The Caravan Club and The Camping and Caravanning Club are a great place to start with searches for destinations in the Hampshire area. They each have lots of listings which will give you all the information you need to know about Hampshire campsites, including which ones are ideal destinations for motorhomes!
To get you started with your search, we’re going to walk you through some of our personal favourites across the New Forest and the South Coast.
The New Forest
Black Knowl Caravan Club Site is in a beautiful setting in the historic New Forest, ideal for camping in Hampshire. The site offers plenty of opportunity to explore the New Forest by bike, on foot or on horseback and is situated close to Brockenhurst, so you can easily walk into the village to explore the quirky shops or traditional pubs. With plenty of attractions nearby, Black Knowl Caravan Club Site is the ideal base for exploring this part of the world.
Also in the New Forest is the New Forest Caravan Club Centenary Site in Bransgore. This well appointed site is located on a former Second World War airfield and offers beautiful countryside, an open aspect and plenty of wildlife. With all the facilities you need, including a visiting mobile fish and chip van, laundry facilities and motorhome waste disposal points, these New Forest campsites in Hampshire make an excellent choice for holidays from March to October.
For quiet winter holidays some of the Caravan Club’s Certificated Locations may be a better option. Members can search for small country or coastal places to stay on the Caravan Club website and use the convenient online booking facility.
The South Coast
Hampshire’s coastline extends from Highcliffe on the border with Dorset to Chichester. As the crow flies, it is around 34 miles long and is very diverse, with sandy beaches, commercial ports and many attractions to visit.
If you stay at the Camping and Caravanning Club’s Chichester site, you can enjoy a relaxing break close to beautiful beaches and the historic city of Chichester with its famous cathedral and theatre but within easy reach of other places on the South Coast. There are farm shops conveniently located close to the site, and there is a regular farmers’ market in Chichester, so healthy ingredients are readily available if you are cooking your own meals. If you prefer to eat out, there are plenty of restaurants nearby. This site is open from early February to mid-November so is ideal for a winter holiday.
Portsmouth is well worth a visit to see the 560-feet-high Spinnaker tower and the historic dockyard, where you can visit Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory, and Henry VIII’s favourite warship, the Mary Rose. For days on the beach, Hayling Island has wide sandy beaches, and Southsea offers a funfair and lots for all the family to enjoy.
Members of the Caravan Club and the Camping and Caravanning Club will benefit from information about local attractions and discount vouchers when available.
