Happy campers will get a free pitch at three campsites this summer, including Holmsley and Ashurst campsites in the New Forest and Bracelands campsite in the Forest of Dean to use as a base from which to explore the wider area and discover all the amazing activities it has to offer for outdoor enthusiasts.

Close to the New Forest are a wide range of exciting outdoor attractions and experiences suitable for any adrenalin junkie including adventure water parks, kayaking on beautiful coastal rivers and tidal estuaries, and challenging tree top adventure courses.

Rebecca Phipps, Marketing Manager for Camping in the Forest said: “More often than not when we’ve got families visiting our campsites, it’s the parents who are dragging the kids to go swinging from the treetops and white-water rafting – they love new experiences!
