Why stay here ...

Waterwells Farm CL is conveniently situated on the edge of Colden Common Village which is surrounded by the Hampshire Countryside.

Our grass pitches are situated in a flat 0.5 acre paddock, having 10 amp electric hook-ups, with views over the open countryside. There are also some hardstanding in the paddock for use during wet weather, which has electric hook-ups.

There are several footpaths around the Colden Common area for short or longer walks, including one of approximately 5 miles to Winchester along the River Itchen.

Public houses in the village all serve a good variety of food, and a local Co-op next to the community centre has papers and groceries, all are within walking distance from the CL.

There is a bus stop for the Winchester bus on Church Lane about 100 metres from the CL. There is also a bus to Eastleigh which can be caught further along the lane.

The historic cities of Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester are all easily accessible by road, and have Park and Ride facilities for visitors (Portsmouth & Winchester can take Motorhomes). If you are travelling to the Isle of Wight, the ferry terminal at Southampton is about 30 minutes away. Or if you are travelling to Europe, the ferry teminal at Portsmouth is about 45 minutes away.

Colden Common is close to the South Downs National Park and just a short drive from the New Forest National Park with their many attractions. There are National Trust Houses, Museums and many other attractions in our area for which we have information leaflets in our Tourist Information room on the CL.

Lovely site

We live fairly local, but after purchasing our new van we wanted 3 nights to try it out and ensure all was well! And truth be told, once on site we could of been anywhere. Lovely view of the field and set well back from the road. After a bit of a nightmare getting on site(no fault of owners, we approached from the wrong direction), we were given a lovely warm welcome and our dog too. The site is level and well looked after. The grass was a little soft, but there had been some very heavy rain. Pitches of a lovely size. Facilities for water and waste are clean and under cover. The resident pony is a character. Valerie and Barry were extremely accommodating when we needed to return to site after midnight. Local shop just up the road as is the pub. And great links to Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth. So glad we found this little gem. We definitely be returning.

Another pleasant weekend

This was our second visit to this wonderful site, nothing has changed, still immaculate in every way. I would definitely recommend this site to fellow members. Warm welcome, good chat with the owners. Good level pitches, wake up to bird song in the morning! What more could you ask for. We have no hesitation returning to this very well kept site. Keep up the good work!

Perfection personified

Our MoHo journey began in this very tucked away yet highly convenient setting overlooking paddocks in a sunny spot. We needed to spend a week here whilst finishing work life ahead of our travels... Very private and secure site with wonderful owners/hosts. Limited hard-stand and grass very wet, but this was very early season and we were grateful for the opening and opportunity. Adequate service point and no facilities so you need to be self-sufficient, which we are and we prefer as the sites are always quieter... Perfect locality to explore the city of Winchester and many other local attractions... Highly recommend. We shall return.

One of the best sites in 3 years!

We have spent most of the last 3 years touring Europe and the UK in our caravan, using varying sites around Southampton as a base to visit our daughter and family. It's taken 3 years to find this lovely site which was recommended by my sister. Although I have passed the entrance many times, until we visited my sister and brother-in-law, I had thought the access would be difficult and the site small. In fact the drive opens out to a spacious site with basic water and waste facilities that are sheltered from rain, and kept clean and tidy. The grass is kept well cut and was very green while we were there. Previous reviewers have detailed buses, shops, pubs, access very well. We did not find road noise that bad, although with the M3 just a few miles away, you are aware of it, but we got used to it. Similarly with aircraft on final approach to the airport from the North, there is some noise, but this is infrequent and busiest first thing and early evening with commuter flights. When the prevailing Westerly wind shifts, we had a few days with aircraft taking off over the site but this is not the usual direction. None of the negatives would stop us staying here again. On the contrary - the positives far outweigh the negatives. Just a shame they are not open all year.

what a gem

One of the best visited, a very warm welcome from mr & mrs ansell on our arrival. even though they were busy, they made time to greet us, and also have a chat. very well laid out site, cwp grey waste & drinking water area very very clean well maintained. only one minor issue is, if the ground is wet, you may have slight problems, but i can add that mr ansell is more than willing to help you. very well kept site, hats off to you both. we have no hesitation on returning.
