A handy stopover

This is a lovely little site and very handy for me as a one night stopover on way to Sussex. Although a longer stay would definitely be welcome. The site itself is more like the car park to the fisheries and on first sight could be a bit off-putting. Vans are pitched a bit too close together for my liking, but are all lakeside which makes a lovely outlook. The owners are absolutely delightful and very friendly and attentive - I got offered a cup of tea upon arrival which, I think is a first. The lakeside cafe is lovely and a big bonus and the breakfast was superb. This all makes up for the slight negatives. The toilet is adequate and the shower is very basic and could do with a bigger space, but at the end of the day, it was a nice hot shower and that is a bonus for a CL and there are plans to enhance the shower at some stage. Overall it is a lovely peaceful place for one night or a few days peace and tranquility. Thank you Ray and Vanessa for looking after me.

A Fishy Business

Just spent six nights at this tranquil site. Ray and Venessa James, the new owners are a lovely couple. warm and friendly and keen to develop the caravan side of the business. As the name suggests, the place is predominantly a fishing venue consisting of a number of lakes as well as a stocked tackle shop and lakeside coffee shop with five hard standing lakeside pitched each with electric hookup. The facilities if basic, consisting of a separate male and female toilet and one disabled toilet and one shower cubicle, are spotless and the James have plans to improve these facilities. The site itself is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing place, full of wildlife just outside your window. Just sitting, listening to the birds sing and watching all the different species come and go or the fish rising is just heavenly. Yes, we loved the place. If you fancy slightly more activity, why not fish or take a stroll around the site. Off site, you're only an easy short distance from the A36 Salisbury road or M27, so in easy reach of somewhere that will interest you. This site is well worth considering even as an overnight holt but I'm sure you'd want to stay longer.

Some good points and some bad points

The good points:  lovely peaceful setting alongside the fishing lakes which cannot be faulted if you accept it is a fishery and fisherman will at times walk over your pitch. It is very well kept and a delightful place to relax. However for us the not so good points outweigh the good and this will be our first and last visit. The not so good points: The pitching for the lakeside pitches was very tight to say the least and although pitches were marked there was certainly less than 5 metres between units during our visit The facilities although kept clean the shower especially is very dated, cramped and in need of updating to justify the cost of staying at this CL. There appears to be no designated area for disposal of grey waste but the thing that discouraged us most of all from returning is the cost  - £22.00 a night including EHU I think is far too high a price for a CL with such  outdated facilities however pleasant a spot it is!

My favourite CL

My wife and I first stayed here in 2004 and have returned several times since.  Last year my wife died so I went alone to see if I could still caravan on my own.  I was made very welcome as always and managed to spend 2 weeks which gave me plenty of time to reflect and decide that yes I can do it alone. I have visited several CL's in the past but for me this is the best.
