Lovely relaxed cl

What a lovely little site this is, lane and access is a bit tight but no problem for a more experienced tower, we had no problem with our kuga and swift 550. Site is on a slight hill but with lovely views. The owner is very welcoming and the site is very quiet and relaxed with a beautiful resident barn owl, buzzards and deer. Lovely walks around the area and close to Winchester

Informal and Relaxed

We have stayed at Dell Croft twice. Diana is very welcoming and relaxed - I've never had a hug from a CL owner before! We like CLs that are informal and this suits us well. While staying there we visited Southampton, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Winchester, The Watercress Line at New Arlesford and had some very scenic walks on the South Downs Way and along the River Itchen. We have also enjoyed sitting on site enjoying the countryside views. We've seen all sorts of birds including buzzards and a barn owl and watched a pair of partridges walk around the field. Diana's hens also lay delicious eggs!

Very disappointed!

After reading the previous reviews we decided that this was the type of CL we always look for. But we were very disappointed! The CL was down a long narrow lane and not for the feint hearted and the narrowness of the entrance was not made any better by the owners Wheelie bins being in the way.... once down the drive we were confronted with a slopping field of very uneven clumpy grass. The whole site looked unkempt and uninviting! I am sure the owner is very nice as previous reviews stated, but she was out when we arrived and the builder on site did not know when she'd be back! We did not stay and would not recommend! As said......very disappointed

South Downs Hideaway

Spent a week here and fortunate to pitch on the hardstanding. Levelling blocks advised for two thirds of the site. As per the site description the gateway would be tight for larger outfits - our 'van is 7.2m and wouldn't have wanted to pull anything larger through the gate. Again the book directions to the site are advised rather than blindly following the satnav. Owner was very helpful with places of interest to top up our own research. Bike rides and walks abound. Would recommend.
