Denny Wood Camping Camping in the Forest

UK England South East England Hampshire Lyndhurst

Slap bang in the middle of New Forest, wonderfully peaceful, surrounded by enchanting oak trees and wild ponies

What camper doesn’t dream of exploring the magical New Forest? Situated slap bang in the middle of this ancient woodland, Denny Wood is a wonderfully peaceful place to camp, surrounded by enchanting oak trees and wild ponies. The pretty villages and weaving web of cycling and walking trails that connect them are renowned attractions, but until you experience them for yourself, you can’t truly appreciate the magic of this remarkable region.

As with many of the woodland sites around these parts, there are no marked pitches, so visitors have the freedom to camp where they like. Denny Wood ticks very few boxes that many modern-day campers consider necessary for a luxurious stay; there are no showers, toilets or cooking facilities. But what you do get is an unforgettable camping experience amongst some of Britain’s most captivating, mysterious landscapes.

So, what can we tell you about The New Forest? Perhaps that's best left to the locals. 'The New Forest Tour Bus' stops directly outside the site, operating a circular route around the forest in the summer months. A ticket covers all day travel, on a varied itinerary which includes: Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Lymington, Beaulieu and Exbury Gardens.

You won’t need to venture far for a pleasant stroll either. A walking and cycling track snakes its way directly from Denny Wood, passing through natural woodlands, onto a clearing with grazing ponies, the occasional leaping deer and birds of prey that circle menacingly above.

All in all, this hidden, harmonious campsite is one of the New Forest's finest, and is without doubt a lovely place pitch. This is largely due to the simple fact that untouched nature is valued more highly than comfort and commercialism. And that’s exactly how camping should be.
