Denny Wood and Matley Wood Campsites are two caravan and campsites offering beautiful grassland or woodland settings and are next door to one another but in totally different settings. The choice is yours!
Denny Wood in the New Forest offers you a camping experience in a peaceful grassland campsite amongst scattered oaks. Here, you can enjoy the simple pleasures of your natural surroundings.
Matley Wood New Forest campsite is a small secluded site in a beautiful woodland setting.
Not only will you be camping really close to the beautiful New Forest ponies at these sites, but the pretty village of Brockenhurst can be reached by bike without having to use any roads. Lyndhurst and Beaulieu are reasonably close too, so lots of choice for fun filled holidays.
Be careful if you stay in either site to keep your food secure and out of the reach of nosy ponies at all times. They can smell food from feet away and will trample through if you haven't hidden it away - be careful but enjoy!
Enjoy cycling from the campsite on a fun day out.
The New Forest Tour open topped sightseeing bus stops at the camping area during the summer months.
You can hop on and discover all the wonderful sights and history of the New Forest National Park and be dropped off at the end of the day. You can also take your bike on board!
