Why stay here ...

A large, well kept site divided into two main areas, Morn Hill Club Site is well segmented by trees and shrubs to give each visitor a sense of privacy, and shade during summer months. The caravan park offers a wealth of lovely natural landscapes to explore and the added bonus of giving you easy access to the charming local ferries that remind of nostalgic days gone by.

Morn Hill Club Site is conveniently located near Winchester, an old cathedral city of considerable beauty in that it has retained many of its ancient buildings and happily excluded the motor car from its heart. The caravan site is an ideal base for touring some of England's most renowned and delightful landmarks - within an hour's drive you can reach the university town of Oxford, the grand castle in Windsor, pretty Chichester and the South Downs, Salisbury, The New Forest and the famous Stonehenge.

The site has a good dog walk.

Please note: there are no hardstanding pitches on this site.

Don't believe information about bus stop location

We liked the natural flat grass setting of the top field. Although the facility block is not of the usual Club standard, we understand that it is being redeveloped from October onwards. When development occurs we hope that the centre grass area is retained. (We assume that some hard standings will be added.) Be aware: the information in the "Sites Directory" about the bus stop being "200 metres away" is untrue. It is approximately a four minutes walk from the site entrance to the bus stop for Winchester and across two roads, with the return bus stop being a few hundred yards nearer. This was no problem for us but for some people this misinformation may be crucial. We found it a good base for visiting Winchester which is why we went.

Just right

Although we didn't get a very friendly welcome, it was efficient enough. I asked for a pitch near the facilities as I am disabled but told I should have asked for one though I didn't know they had them. We were given disabled pitch No. 90 which suited our needs and I'm glad we were further from the road due to the noise. There was noise on one night from behind the site which went on until around 4.30am but nothing to do with the site. We found it very neat and tidy and getting in and out with the fob was good. The area is fantastic with so much to do and we went as far as Salisbury, Lynhurst, Portsmouth and Southampton. We can recommends The Bell in Alresford which do a great two course meal for £12.50. We will come back next year. We had to leave a day early due to family illness but had to leave without telling the wardens so I do think we will get a refund for today. Unfortunately I'm not able to contact the site to ask them.

Is that it?

We heard this was one of the first club sites, so expectations were running high for the site. We could imagine what might have been done to make it a beautiful place: landscaping, planting, top of the range facilities? What a disappointment then to find a bland field with just a few hedges and sparse trees. As for the facilities, really inadequate for the site: 2 showers and 3 toilets in a block that has had cosmetic work but needs a complete rebuild. The road noise was pretty bad, although it settled in the night. The staff don’t seem to have much pride in the place, when we reported a dead rabbit near our pitch they knew about it but hadn’t done anything. If the location is important for you then put up with the bleak nature of the site, otherwise go elsewhere.

Morn Hill

My daughter and I have just come back from a nice 2 night stay. Very quiet site. Couldn't see anything for children though? Will return as only a good hour from us and good to visit Winchester. If you go into Winchester on a week day, don't stay over 4 hrs, otherwise it will cost you £15, which I found out!! Tight parking spots as well in the car park, not good when you've got a van & crack your reflector light and scrap the paint, because a piece of wood is sticking out. An expensive shopping trip! Winchester is a lovely city though.

Morn Hill and Boomtown Fair

We stayed at Morn Hill Caravan Park to attend the Boomtown Fair Music Festival. The walk from the caravan park to the Boomtown Gates was about 1.5km and fairly safe along the main grass verge on the A31. We arrived at the high heat of summer and whilst setting up we were greeted by a fellow caravaner Nick and his good lady (sorry I don't know her name sadly) who made us a cup of tea and helped us setup the van even to the extent of lending us his drill to wind down the steadies. The caravan park itself was well maintained with grass well trimmed and utility areas tidy and disinfected. The shower block was clean and tidy, however it was somewhat tired with the odd loose tile and older fittings etc. We found the wardens friendly and obliging helping us out with local directions and the location of nearest supermarkets and restaurants. In summary we had a great time at Morn Hill and would return in a heartbeat.
