Lovely site - owner is WONDERFULLY bonkers! Clearly cares about her site - very well kept & dog friendly. A few niggles but enjoyed our weekend!

Diana is wonderful and does so well with the upkeep of this gorgeous little site. There is a separate field which Diana allowed us to let our dog run in (all enclosed), lovely scenery (of the hill) and well kept pitches. A lovely pub which is a walk away (if your ok with doing steep hills) and lots of choice of bridle ways & footpaths for you to explore. The hill is on a slight incline, bring your wedges just in case you have to pitch on the slope. Electric points all in easy reach too and the water fills the barrels quick - always a bonus for me! The niggles... entrance would be easier to get in if the bins were put back down the drive but can understand that they are kept where they are for bin lorry to access. A family dog runs free, he's very friendly and didn't cause any problems but this could be an issue for some people. My biggest niggle is it could be more child friendly, not in the way that a play area needs to be put up, more in that I was told pup tents would be ok then asked for a donation to accommodate the 'clan' (2 teenagers and an 8 year old in 2 pup tents over 4 units...) kind of way. Still happily donated, some may not be too pleased with the comment made. Overall its a really lovely site and location. I would definitely return but perhaps without my 'clan' :P :P Thank you for a lovely weekend!

Relaxing stay

Dell Croft
My wife and I stayed for several days recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is quiet and rural with great views of the surrounding countryside. While I would agree that access from the lane into the CL is tight, its very doable - must be if I, a novice tower with a Volvo XC60 and Coachman VIP 575 could manage it ! There are very enjoyable walks locally and the site is well placed to venture further afield. We will certainly be back !

In decline

We have stayed at this site a few times over the last 3 years and it is sad to say that the facilities are not up to scratch. Waste disposal is terrible and entrance to site very tight even for a small caravan.No greeting on arrival or departure. The owner always asking for free advice which can become annoying. Will not be returning.

Great site, very peaceful and lovely views. Diana is so warm and welcoming and obviously enjoys sharing her surroundings. She was very helpful and friendly and made our stay most enjoyable. Thank You from Carol and John Sexton

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
