Hampshire has a great range of camping sites, for different budgets, and with varying levels of amenities to cater to campers’ different needs and preferences. Below are three great campsites we’ve tried ourselves and really enjoyed, listed in no particular order. We can’t wait to discover more and add extra entries to the list!

🏕️ Holmsley Campsite, New Forest

Holmsley is one of ten camping sites the owners run in the national park. It’s on an old airfield with lots of history and our fave thing about it was the kids having the rule of the site on bikes, riding around carefree in groups, a very nostalgic throwback to carefree days of kids playing in the streets. 🚲

The site was larger than expected and we comfortably secured a sport in a great quiet field by the tree line. 

Loos are very clean and modern; they have three toilets and hot shower blocks across the large campsite.

There is a playground for the kids as well as plenty of space to play around, and a large shop selling loads of great items including hot drinks, slushies, and stocked up well on that New Forest ice cream for when the sun is here.

Very friendly, chatty staff too. 😉🍦

It’s a great idea to bring the bikes along as well, as it’s perfectly situated, right by the old Holmley railway line. So getting on two wheels, we headed out for a long ride before a great night’s sleep 🚲

⛺️ Pitchup, Stockbridge View

Affordable wild-style camping in the Test Valley.

We recently stayed at this campsite for families in Stockbridge, a quick 10-15 minutes’ walk from the high street.

It’s a quiet Hampshire site with large grass pitches and easy road access; don’t think anything fancy, but just the essentials you need for an affordable camping getaway over the summer.

Prices start from £20 a night for a pitch based on two sharing. All parts of the site are a few minutes’ walk from good basic amenities like running water, toilets, showers, and a chemical disposal point.

The campsite is just a 15-minutes’ walk down a country bridleway to the bustling market town of Stockbridge Hampshire. Some of our fave there include Kudos coffee and Hoxtons as well as plenty of independents.

Great walks nearby including the Danebury Iron Age hill fort spot which is a fave of ours.

🏕️Upper Parsonage Farm

A Meon Valley camping adventure!

Following an invite from this great family-run business on a traditional 1,400-acre working farm, we headed into the beautiful Hampshire countryside.

We loved this quiet campsite which only has eight lovely pitches, which is brilliant for quiet family time.

Surrounded by a field with sheep, at the foot of Butser Hill, pitches include a picnic bench, each with a campfire and, another brilliant feature, a private loo with a lock for each individual pitch!
