The sun is out. The sky is blue. And you’re worried because you think you’ve left it too late to book your summer holiday.

We’ve got it covered! And because the New Forest has such an amazing variety of places to stay, holiday types and accommodation on offer, you are bound to find the perfect place for your summer getaway.

If it’s classic camping you fancy, look no further than Camping in the New Forest which has a number of great deals and discounts for many of our beautiful sites.

They have a family deal, a 20 per cent off discount for campers over the age of 60. Also, if you stay between 1st June and 31st August 2018 you can enjoy 15% off.

Camping alone? You’ll receive 30 per cent off the standard pitch night price. This will automatically be applied when booking. 

If you forgo your car and arrive with just your backpack, prepare to pocket 50 per cent off standard pitch night prices!

Their mid-week offer entitles you to 10 per cent off your pitch fees when you stay on select sites Mondays to Thursdays.

There are conditions so do check before booking and the deals don’t apply to every site but with ten to choose from – each with its own special feel and character – you’re sure to find the perfect pitch.

If you’re looking for protection from the elements but all the fun of a big holiday park, then try Shorefield. They are offering two-night stays available midweek at either Shorefield Country Park or Oakdene Forest Park, starting from just £132, arriving on either a Monday or Wednesday outside of school holidays.

The accommodation ranges from chalets, to caravans and lodges (excluding all hot tub accommodation) and you’ll have access to all the first-class on-park facilities and entertainment at no extra cost. You can’t book online so call the Reservations Team on 01590 648333.

If your stay has to be in the summer holidays try Sandy Balls, which is offering three nights from Friday July 20 in a Safari Tent for six (two bedrooms) for just under £610. (And check their site for all their other offers, too.) The woodland park has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a whole string of activities to interest you and the kids – everything from target archery or Zorb games. They have a restaurant and a variety of evening entertainment, too.

Hoburne Bashley near New Milton still has a few luxury lodges available for high summer, plus a number of tempting on-going deals. They offer a huge range of family fun as well as the chance to dance the night away in the entertainment complex, take a trip to the beach or, for mums and dads, a nice relax in the sauna and steam room.
