Great Location

Echo previous reviews regarding finding the site. The name is in dark writing on a brown wooden board which has partially collapsed. There is no Caravan club sign to help either. Check in was fine and we were provided with a local area information sheet. The CL is in the midst of an extensive area of caravans storage and residential vans. On the CL at least two of the caravans had obviously not moved in a long while. Grey water and chemical both emptied into a single access point. There was no obvious recycling though there were 3 dustbins next to the fresh drinking water. The area was level but soft so getting out proved to be a problem as the pitches are below the level of the access road. The local area is beautiful with plenty to do so no complaints on that front. Indeed my only complaint was when I discovered electricity was charged on a meter, albeit at 15 pence per unit. This is the most expensive CL I have visited and to be charged electricity as an extra, particularly as the Sites Directory entry states £17 pitch and all, is unjustified.

Lovely site

Lovely site with ever changing views. The pictures really dont do it justice! Quiet site near to places that are beautiful - Lepe, Calshot, Exbury, Beaulieu, Bucklers hard, east side of New Forest. Enjoyed walking to dog friendly pub down the road with basic but good food & garden on the waterfront. TV reception gd, but view so entertaining dont need it! Even at night. This is a site we will return to! Only issue is that the sign at the entrance needs to be bigger or more visible for first time visitors. Missed it coming back from Calshot in the dark too. Otherwise it is easy to get to. There are permanent pitches (hedged off) & storage at front. Neither interfered with CL as far as we were concerned. Will be back!

Great little site

If your requirements are fresh water, somewhere to empty your waste, great scenery and a quite spot, then this is the place to go. Beautiful view towards Southampton water, where you can watch the ever changing marine traffic from sail boats commercial ships and cruise ships, as they enter and depart Southampton harbour. It has easy access to the new forest, Calshot, Hythe, lepe Country park and Exbury gardens. Also Beaulieu motor museum if you have an interest in motor vehicles old and new. A reasonably walk away is the Jolly Sailor at Ashley creek that sells good beer and nice food. You can sit outside and watch the world go by. This is our third visit but defiantly not our last.

Outstanding view and beautiful site

This is a wonderful site from which to sit and watch the Southampton Water marine traffic go by - an ever changing view. We had three nights and were happy to use our own facilities (loo and shower) and the electric hook up was just £3.50 on the meter. 'Broke the rules' on arrival by missing the reception (the door was open so we didn't see the sign) and consequently didn't position ourselves on our pitch correctly - should have centred our van on the pitch number! Easy access though and completely flat pitch - no need for any tweaking. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, it's easy to take the previous turning which is signed to Stonehill, but the drive to the site is immediately afterwards and does say Stonehill Farm - a little hidden by the undergrowth. A bit confusing with the other caravan areas in the farm as well as the CL, but the five pitches for club members are all along the fence overlooking a field of horses and the view to the sea. We crammed a huge amount into our break - the highlight was the visit to Exbury Gardens which was exceptional at this time of the year, but Hythe on market day (Tuesday) was delightful and we were most impressed with the facilities at the Calshot Activities centre. Can highly recommend the Thai Corner restaurant in Hythe (very busy every night) and the welcome at the Jolly Sailor pub at Ashlett Creek (food only at weekends). The only drawback, and it might affect us visiting here again, was the dreadful noise from Fawley Oil Refinery throughout the night. Just like a constant jumbo jet above, from midnight until after 6.00am! In researching, whilst lying awake, it seems as if it's something to do with flare off, so may not be every night, but I do feel for the locals - I guess they're used to it, but when you're out in the countryside, (and it is really beautiful countryside nearby) you're expecting birdsong and wildlife. Lesson learned - ear plugs or Nytol.

New Year break

We enjoyed our visit to this CL which has lovely views accross Southampton Water. Great for watching the boats sailing in and out of Southampton. Quiet location despite its proximity to Fawley oil refinery and Calshott power station. Great area for walking and easy walk to a local pub,The jolly sailor. Worth mentioning that when we visited in December/January, the grass pitches were very soft and both our neighbours on site and us, needed wooden runners to get off our pitch. These were willingly provided by Mr Hartmann, the owner, who was very helpful.
