Why stay here ...

As you top the rise on the approach road, you will see Rookesbury Park Club Site splendidly set in tranquil parkland and filled with hedges and trees in the valley, with the magnificent Forest of Bere at its edge. For restaurants, pubs and other conveniences, the caravan site puts you within easy reach of Fareham and the village of Wickham.

A good choice for those with children, part of the caravan park is reserved as a children's play and picnic area. As the Gateway to the South Downs, the site is ideally located for shoppers and city visitors to Portsmouth and Southampton, yet also perfectly placed to enjoy country walks and the peace and tranquillity of the Forest of Bere clearings. If you enjoy the outdoors you will be spoilt for choice because the entire area is ideal for walking, cycling and leisurely absorbing the peace and quiet of the former royal Forest of Bere. The area is abundant with wildlife and a variety of birdlife, with plenty of opportunities for keen photographers to take great nature shots. Should you want to explore further afield, Rookesbury Park Club Site is well placed for everything from a day trip to the Isle of Wight to a longer visit in Portsmouth to see the restored ships of old (the Mary Rose, the Victory, the Warrior) as well as sample the local seaside shopping treats. For more fascinating history, you could also visit the Victorian Fort Nelson, a Royal Armouries collection of artillery, displaying over 350 cannons.

A mobile fish and chip van visits this site, please ask the site staff for more details.

Poor Experience

Having stayed on this site one night we decided to book another night to spend more time around Portsmouth and there are few other sites to choose from in the area. On our way out the next morning I called into the office and reserved a specific pitch, paid for it and took away the barrier key for that pitch. Then went out for the day in good faith expecting the pitch to be available when we returned around 5. However it had been taken by someone else. Obviously I went to the office to find out what was going on and was given very short shrift by the lady who I had booked with in the morning and the male warden. Despite taking the key on the morning and paying up they said they assumed we wouldn’t be returning as no pitch marker was left. Very terse, very much “our fault” and not prepared to budge an inch. I asked for a refund as we decided we’d drive home but this was also refused as the rude male warden said we had paid for a pitch and one was available. He could certainly do with some customer care training and this site needs to shape up on it’s organisation, flexible attitude and efficiency. What sharp contrast to the fabulous site we had just stayed on at Southland on the Isle of Wight. Pleasant, friendly, nothing too much trouble. We extended our stay twice and they put a reserved pitch marker out for us immediately. If only all sites maintained the same high standards...........

Hot June 2018

Very well run caravan site, the shady walks in the forest a welcome retreat from the scorching sun. The wardens very friendly and helpful, working very hard keeping the site immaculate. Short drive into Wickham or able to walk through the forest crossing the main road before returning to a quiet countryside walk once again. The dog walk has been halved in size to give way to tent pitches but the dog walk remains large; our dogs enjoyed being sociable and running around the dog walk. Chip van visits once a week, it would be good twice a week?

A large and busy site, ideal location

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed the site and the area, especially Portsmouth Docks. The site is larger and busier that we are normally used to but we chose the site for the location. The site and facilities were clean and adequate to the Clubs usual standards

A little piece of Heaven !

Fabulous stay, perfect location, accessible for Portsmouth and the surrounding area whilst the site is away from any noise. A beautiful site, grounds very well maintained with spotless facilities and in addition has a very sociable dog walking area ! As for the wardens, happy, very helpful, approachable and kind - They were the icing on the cake !

Another Caravan Club gem

Just returned from a 3 night stay and what an excellent site - great location, very peaceful, exceptionally clean toilet block (at all times - and being the newer block, a good supply / water pressure with more space and hooks in the showers). Very helpful and friendly wardens - everything about the site brilliant, thank you and we would definitely recommend and will be returning.
