This is an excellent base for exploring the New ForestGreen Hill Farm Holiday Village is perfect for families wanting to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Situated in a peaceful area of woodland, with a gate giving you direct access to the forest. The location is perfect for exploring the many quaint villages and market towns. The park is a truly relaxing place for all.


Do you love camping or want to give it a try, without the hassle of putting up a tent? You could try the Safari Tents with hot tubs. Green Hill also allows touring caravans, motorhomes and tents (tents Easter to October). New this year are their camping pods (which look a bit like an upturned boat) for both families and adults only. We stayed in a “holiday home” with 2 bedrooms, one en-suite, shower room and open plan kitchen-living room.

This holiday location is all about family fun, enjoying the outdoors and nature. You are surrounded by natural scenery with three lakes and an abundance of wildlife. The staff are friendly and the location feels safe.  Facilities on the park include a shop, mountain bike hire, licensed bar, mini golf, and fishing lakes. There’s also a host of fun activities including Segway’s and archery. The Cafe Bar serves food and drink all day, the homemade pizzas are excellent and very tasty. The splendid children’s playground is location next to the outside eating area allowing children to play and parents to eat and relax. If you are feeling energetic you can try out the 14 stations outdoor gym equipment!
