A nice little gtaway

This site was a pleasant surprise, originally booked to attend the Cheese & Chilli festival in nearby Hurn. When we booked we looked at what was around and yes we did notice we were at the end of a runway so expected lots of aeroplane noise during our visit. On arrival the CL was easy to find and the gate was plenty wide enough for our twin axel unit. There are 3 stanchions each with 3 ehu and single fresh water supply with good water pressure. The field is set considering its location in quite tranquil surroundings with a nice view of the lake. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and on arrival pop over to introduce themselves and then leave you be to enjoy your break. The negative, you are booked onto a CL next to Bournemouth International Airport, expect aeroplane noise. We found that the big jets only flew 3 or 4 times a day with one flight at 7am every morning, yes you can hear it but it only lasts a minute or two. There are other aeroplanes taking off during the day but the noise from these aircraft is nothing different to anything flying overhead. Considering you are next to a main A road the traffic noise is minimal and all we could really hear is the odd motorbike and tractor going by. Overall this is a well presented CL with lots of benefits and we will definitely be returning.

Just right

We wished to stay near to the Chapel Gate Sports Grounds, and this site was therefore perfect. But what we found was a site that is much more than just convenient for our immediate needs. We did not find the main road either busy or noisy, and this was a Bank Holiday weekend with a massive football tournemant taking place only half a mile away. Okay, the airport is nearby, but it is not busy, no commercial flights at night, and the few arrivals and departures just served to add interest! The site is well kept. There are good and easy countryside walks, including to the local gastro pub (The Curlew, about 20 minutes). Pitch and Put next door. Good for those interested in horses, with stables all around. And it is well placed for visits to the coast and New Forest. We will certainly be returning, and not just to spend the weekend watching a junior football tournament!

Reasonable site

Easy to find & good access.  The aircraft noise was not a problem but it was very close to a busy main road & the noise from that was incessant & made it very difficult to turn right out of the site.  However you can turn left & there is a roundabout about 1/4 mile away so you could easily turn & come back.  The site has 3 (looked new) brick pillars around the field on which there were 3 EHU's & a tap which gave plenty of choice for pitching but could mean you needed a long lead.  The electricity was good & didn't keep tripping.  The animals & wild fowl were good to watch along with a lot of horses passing by.  Overall a pleasant site but not peaceful.

Exactly as expected

A simple site with enough space for everyone. Alpacas, swans, ducks, geese around the lake. We stayed here because the grandchildren wanted to see aeroplanes and the site is just off the end of the main runway at Bournemouth. As we don't mind aeroplane noise it was perfect for us. There are not too many commercial flights (about half a dozen a day) and the light aircraft noise is no problem. Easy access to the almost level site and also to Bournemouth and Christchurch. Only minor comment would be that where the caravans had parked on our visit it required a long lead for the EHU.

A good all round cl.

This is what I would call a good all round cl with all the basics. Easy access and friendly welcome from owner. Yes, aircraft noise, but we enjoyed watching the varity of planes. Cycle paths near, so good for getting paper in morning and we  cycled to Christchurch one day. Pond with ducks etc in next door  field, something to watch! Footpaths right by site, also golf course, so can watch golfers too! Would stay again.
