As we embrace the beauty of the staycation this year, many of you were keen to try out the range of Family Friendly Campsites in Sussex and so we’ve searched a little further afield for you and found some of the best family friendly campsites slightly further afield in Hampshire.

Want to get ahead and book a summer staycation? Then Lepe Beach Campsite could be the place for you!

The only campsite within 150 miles of the beach with stunning panoramic views of Solent, Lepe Beach even backs onto the local country park with its own play area and picnic spots.

Nearby, the lost-in-time village of Beualiu or the beautiful Exbury Gardens, but in truth you have the whole of the New Forest on your doorstep to make this an exciting, picturesque and family-friendly staycation with the best base to return to!

Holden Farm prides itself on being incredibly family friendly whilst offering a hands-on, real countryside camping experience as well as watching the farm at work.

With excellent facilities including hot showers, flushing toilets and washing up facilities, if you’re a seasoned camper and love immersing yourself in nature, Holden Farm is the place for you!

Local amenities include; the village of Cheriton, a quintessentially British village, right at the source of the River Itchen; pooh sticks and duck feeding aplenty here!

Whilst the village pub, The Flower Pots, is an award-winning pub and microbrewery.

The historic city of Winchester is on the doorstep of Holden Farm and offers endless opportunities for exploring and historical outings.

If you are looking for a natural and secluded staycation, the almost secretive Setthorns Campsite is the place for you.

Privacy and tranquillity aplenty, you don’t know where the campsite ends and the forest begins with winding looped paths with rugged edges that provide a real sense of adventure.

Pitching up at Setthorns, places you in a prime location for the New Forest and the abundance of natural adventure with free roaming ponies and deer at every turn.

Setthorns offers an immersive, exciting and natural base for your staycation with family friendly local attractions including Paultons Park, Beaulieu Motor Museum and the stunning New Forest Wildlife Park, makes this a perfect family-friendly staycation.

Another campsite that revels in everything the New Forest has to offer, Ocknell and Longbeech Campsite is a staple campsite for those who are seeking adventure and character; roaming ponies amongst a tranquil setting surrounded by forest with paths leading in countless directions, creates a secret garden-esque feel to the site.

A family friendly base where children can play and explore, offering direct access to the beautiful ancient woodlands straight from your tent!

How lucky are we to have such natural hidden gems like these so close to home?!

The perfect opportunity for a staycation, shop small and to support small independent businesses through such difficult times, whilst making precious memories with your family, it’s a win win scenario!
