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.

Would love to have stayed longer!

Waterwells Farm
A lovely peaceful site in a tranquil location, but close to Winchester for exploring the city. Great walks from the site, very warm welcome and excellent facilities. Sadly we were only able to stay one night, but would love to return for a longer stay.

Fantastic CL in close proximity to Winchester

Waterwells Farm
Recently we enjoyed a "Family Rally" of three units at this delightful CL where we received a warm welcome from the Owners upon arrival who sited us and explained fully the amenities. Provided that you follow the instructions within the Sites Directory and do not use Sat Nav, the site is easy to find. Access to this CL located behind the Owner's home is via an adequate driveway (that provided no issues for our twin axle Swift Conqueror) which leads onto an amazingly level beautifully maintained lawned CL with wooden barriers that mark out each individual pitch. The grass is well maintained and thankfully grass cuttings are collected, so avoiding it being trampled into the caravan. Adjoining the CL are fields in which has a donkey - and in the distance one evening we spotted several deer. The CL is very tranquil apart from the occasional aircraft flying overhead. The amenities for drinking water, waste water disposal and emptying the toilet cassette are undercover to a high standard but rather further away from our camping units than we would have preferred. Within about 15 minutes walk is The Fisherman's Pond Pub where we enjoyed an excellent meal. Other places of interest are located within easy travelling distance and include Winchester, Fareham, Southampton and the Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley, Hampshire, England, by the shores of Southampton Water which is well worth a day's visit. No issues at all with TV reception or electrics at all. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this CL.

Lovely site

Waterwells Farm
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.
