NOW OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND
Visit Hampshire and stay at Shamba Holidays, a family holiday destination, found close to the New Forest National Park and the county border with Dorset. The park holds a four-star rating from Visit England and a five-star rating from the AA, and has also won numerous other accolades in recent years.
The park is open from the beginning of March until the end of October every year, with 150 pitches set across seven acres of level and sheltered fields. The park welcomes guests with touring caravans, motorhomes and tents. All pitches benefit from an electric hook-up.
The pitches at Shamba Holidays are all well drained, while running water points, grey water and chemical waste disposal points are located across the site. Seasonal pitches are available at the park, with the cost of these even including winter storage for guests planning to return to Shamba Holidays the following year.
Facilities available at the site for the comfort and convenience of guests include heated toilet and shower blocks, a laundrette and a washing up area. This is a dog friendly and family friendly campsite.
There is plenty for guests to do during their stay at Shamba Holidays. The outdoor but partially covered pool is popular throughout the season, with an adjoining sun terrace available for guests looking to relax out of the water. There is also a shallow paddling pool for toddlers to enjoy. Swimming lessons are available, with a number of classes run for total beginners and those just starting to develop their confidence in the water.
The on-site games room has a pool table, table football and amusement arcade games, providing great fun for the whole family whatever the weather, while outdoors there is plenty of space for ball games and other family activities, as well as a children’s play area.
The clubhouse at Shamba Holidays has a fully licenced bar, selling a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and serving bar meals throughout the day. There is also a large screen television showing the latest sporting events live.
Guests looking to self-cater at the site can take advantage of the on-site shop, which is well stocked with essentials as well as the odd luxury purchase. Camping accessories are also available, perfect in case anything has been left at home or been damaged en route or during a stay at the park.
The surrounding area is also filled with lots of things to do. The New Forest offers miles of walking and cycling routes, while also proving a haven for wildlife spotters and bird watchers. You can also see the famous New Forest ponies or go horse riding yourself. Maybe you'd like to visit Beaulieu, with its National Motor Museum, House and Garden, or head to nearby Buckler's Hard and discover its links with Nelson. The North Solent National Nature Reserve and the Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway are both in that area, too.
From Shamba Holidays you could also be in Ringwood in less than 10 minutes by car, while you're also just a 20-minute drive from Bournemouth with its pier, aquarium, beach and much more, plus both Salisbury and Southampton are only about 40 minutes away by car.
