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.

Another Good Holiday?

Just returned from a week here. We actually come for a week every year. We love the area and the site is usually very good. This year, however, we had two problems. Firstly our Thetford Casette got damaged. I was using the CCEP in the lower toilet block and the tap facility is old and has a very short rubber hose. In trying get water into the casette I broke the plate. Cost £44 to replace. When I spoke to the warden I was politely told that the 'water board' have specific regulations that determine the precise length of rubber pipe to the millimetre! Not sure I believe him. Then we pitched on 104 and behind us we had the new tent complex. Apparently the club is experimenting using caravan pitches for tents with electric hook ups. So one by one tents of all shapes and sizes began to arrive. So how you put a tent on a caravan pitch? They were on the peg, off the peg, in the middle of the peg. A real shambles. 38 years ago we joined THE CARAVAN CLUB - we now accept the MOTORHOME addition but we DID NOT join the CAMPING CLUB. Beware if you are going to the site unless you like to have your peace spoiled by a rag tag of tents etc choose your pitch carefully.

Excellent

This site is very well maintained, with excellent helpful and very friendly staff even willing to go the extra mile, always polite. Great site for dog owners as there is a big field for the dogs to run free and mix with other dogs, most people clean up there dogs mess, mainly some owners don’t clean up after their dog, which spoils it for other owners. The shop is very well stocked, it is only 5 to 10 mins away with great shop in the village of Wickham there is a Co-op, chemists and various places to eat. Fareham is only 15 to 20 mins away. Lovely site to be on an absolute pleasure to stay there, we have already booked a return holiday for this site. Would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful site, in a stunning area,

We had never visited this area with our touring caravan, despite being avid " Caravanners" for 12 years... This is a lovely hideaway..right off the beaten track but almost central for a good weeks holiday, and it also has a stopover paddock for Ferry crossovers... The site is beautifully kept and very well maintained by a team of wardens that can be seen working from the early hours to late evening to make your stay perfect, They are very large pitches... both grass and hard standing,,with electric..and there is even a tent/camping field, There is a shop on site which sells most necessities,, and a Fish and Chip van visits the site, The site is perfect for visiting places like the Historic Harbour docks, with The Warrior,, The Victory and Harbour tour,,,We visited Winchester Cathedral, Wolvesley Castle,South sea. and the stunning Port Solent marina where you can sit in the evening and have a great meal, This site is a must for a stay..it has everything on site, and the beautiful weather made it an easy stay to sit by the van in the evening and read till late with a nice cool drink, There were only 2 minuses.and these are to those who stay on the site... As I mentioned The pitches are very large which allows for a lot of space between each unit. There are some who like to share their music and their TV'S to everyone in the camp.please be mindful if we wanted to listen to music or the Tv we would have used our own as the electic is inclusive, We didn't take our dogs this time as we had booked to go to "The Festival of Speed at Goodwood" and intended to visit Portsmouth and the surrounding cities attractions, but there is a good Dog activity area, walk and you can take your Dog for a great walk out of the site,,,,usual restrictions are in place,,,sadly there are some people don't abide by the rules as I found out when going to get in our car one morning... having to clear up some else 's mess , before we drove out,,so we didn't drive it all around the site. Dog Poo bags are very cheap and it doesnt take two minutes to clean up, dont ruin the site for other users,

Tents and long grass

HAY FEVER alert. Booked a weekend here for the family to celebrate some birthdays. Since last year the tent area has been left to grow wild with areas ‘cut out’ to pitch. Whilst looking idyllic, a word of warning if you suffer from hay fever! There is a lot of pollen, dust, grass seed and if you suffer from hay fever then take a lot of potions to counteract the effects. Also most kids love to run in the long grass so check for ticks afterwards. Other than streaming eyes, noses and itches a lovely stay at a favourite site.
