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 want to enjoy the outdoors while touring in Hampshire, 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 very pleasant and peaceful stay.

This was our fourth venture out in our newly acquired caravan (new to caravan life this year). The site was easy to get to and the directions given by the club were spot on. Access was easy and the welcome was very friendly and Covid safe. There was plenty of choice of pitches and we chose a nicely maintained and convenient pitch near to all services. We liked the 5mph speed limit which is strictly monitored. The site was quiet (despite being full) and there is a lovely walk out of the campsite into Wickham (although Covid seems to have shut the village down at the moment). The site is well located for days out the Chichester, Portsmouth, Hayling Island etc and it meets all of the high standards that we have already experienced at Club sites. We would thoroughly recommend and may well return if we are in the area again.

Lovely site

We enjoyed a lovely four day break at this peaceful site. Our welcome was very warm and during our stay the wardens were very helpful and friendly, particularly when we had an issue with our electric tripping out. The facilities were extremely clean and we preferred the use of hooks for the wristband system rather than the one we had experienced previously at another site using the containers with sterilising fluid. Most people did follow the rules but there are always one or two who don't and entered without a wristband when the toilet block was full which was surprising given the current situation. Our pitch was large with a lovely area of grass behind it where we could enjoy the sunshine. The site is ideal if you want to walk or cycle. We used the path from the site to visit Wickham, cycled along the Meon Valley Trail and also used the National Cycle Network to cycle to Gosport. A very relaxing break.

Meon Valley Escape

We had an 8 day break at Rookesbury just as it reopened. It was wonderful to get away and spend time in our caravan and wih our caravan buddies and heir 3-legged dog (socially distanced of course!) It was our first visit to this site and won’t be the last. The wardens were really friendly and worked hard to ensure the facilities and site were clean and met the Covid requirements. We felt safe and well looked after. There are some lovely walks around the site and it is well situated for trips through the Meon Valley with its lovely streams and beautiful countryside and also the coast. Wickham is a delight and with exploring and is within walking distance of the site through the forest (get directions from the Information Point). It is a dog friendly site with a large dog walk easily accessible.

Dry good as always

Our first venture out this year and to our favourite site. Not disappointed! The new team were welcoming in spite of a paperwork error in the system. Site very well prepared and all new safety systems working well although being of a vulnerable age we avoided all facilities except those we could not avoid. Site very well organised as always. Thanks to all the staff.
