Hoburne Helping the Environment

All of our holiday parks and golf courses have been perfectly positioned so that you can enjoy some of the most unspoilt locations in the South and South West of the UK.

From clifftop views to deep within the forest, our parks put you at the heart of nature. Each location is lovingly cared for by our site teams in order to preserve its natural beauty for generations to come. 

We've joined the David Bellamy Blooming Marvellous Pledge For Nature!

Our holiday parks are in areas of outstanding natural beauty, which we're committed to preserving for all to enjoy.

The Woodland Centre at Hoburne Bashley

Open to everyone from holidaymakers to local schools and organisations, the Woodland Centre at Hoburne Bashley offers a range of guided walks, workshops, classes and talks which educate visitors on the preservation and history of the forest.

As part of the ancient New Forest, the woodland is being managed by experts using methods such as coppicing which are centuries-old and highly sustainable. 

Visitors can try their hand at coppicing, bushcraft and woodcarving whilst guided by professionals who have the woodland and its conservation as their core priority.
