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.

Excellent Site

This site is great, i did notice however, some pitches had a sign put on them saying "Please Do Not Pitch Here" or something like that. Then an elderly gentleman pitched his caravan on that picth with the sign. When asked how come he can park there we were told oh thats because i an here for a long time so it stops anyone from pitching for a short period! When we asked the wardens if they are allowing pitch number reservations now, answere was no! but clearly they are!

Superb site

We have just had a week long stay at this superb site. Although it is large and was busy it was extremely peaceful and didn't feel crowded at all. The site staff were excellent friendly and very efficient, giving the whole site a warm and friendly feeling. The site is excellent for dog owners with a very large fenced dog field and smaller doggie pit stops dotted around, also easy access to acres of forestry commission woodland next door. The shower blocks which looked recently refurbished were the best we've yet experienced and they were beyond immaculate with powerful showers. The visiting food vans were also excellent. We would definitely recommend this fabulous site and will be returning next year!

Perfect, thank you

Having recently stayed at and having had to complain about another club site further North and eventually having had the very condescending reply of the area manager, it was a relief to arrive here and find lovely helpful staff and a wonderful site. This is without a doubt the nicest and best run site of both the clubs of which we are members, that we have been to. All the facilities that we saw or used are as at least good or better than they need to be. The site had a friendly calm atmosphere despite it being quite busy. We will certainly be back especially if are using one of the Portsmouth ferry services for which the site is ideally placed. Thank you to all who work there.

September Break

This was our first stay at Rookesbury Park and from the start we were very impressed. The toilet blocks were immaculate and the team of Wardens were hard working and friendly.

Back Again

Such a good site for a stopover on the way to the Isle of Whyte allowing a quick route into Portsmouth after the morning rush hour to the Whytelink terminal. The site has a variety of pitches, many hard standings (necessary for our heavy motorhome with car on a trailer), there are also some lovely grass pitches. The toilet blocks are immaculate with great showers. At reception you can order your croissants for breakfast! Wardens were extremely helpful, thank you.
