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

Recent Break

Just returned after a short break. This was our second stay at Rookesbury Park this year. I was quite reluctant to go anywhere when restrictions started to be raised and this was the first site we tried as it is close to family. We both felt very comfortable with all the procedures for covid in place and found all staff to be very helpful and friendly. There was a great choice of cakes from a local bakery for sale in the shop which we had to try and weren't disappointed. It's a great site with lots of local walks and would thoroughly recommend. Thank you.

Wonderful site, great team of hard working wardens

Just finished our final visit of the season & despite the awful problems caused by COVID 19 that we have all suffered we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We prefer to caravan fairly close to home & have managed 35 nights over several visits during this short season. Our dog loves the dog field & “pit stops” for urgent visits. Nothing could be improved unless we could get all campers to obey the rules such as clear up after your dog, 5 mph on site etc etc etc. This years warden team have been excellent, extremely helpful & friendly. We changed from a motorhome to a caravan & as we we hadn’t had a caravan for well over 30 years we were very naive, we wouldn’t have managed without the help & information of the wardens especially Paul

Dogs and dog poo

So we have stayed at this site many many times, the staff have always been excellent and the facilities have always been top notch, great food with decent prices on a Friday from the takeaway , same again Saturday but a little dearer, BUT, the one thing that really bothers me and has always bothered me is people taking their dogs into the children’s play area, it is clearly signposted that you are not to do this, but there are always the idiots that think they are exempt, on this particular weekend someone (presumably a child) had managed to tread in dogs poo and then plaster it all over the children’s climbing apparatus, and the first we knew of this was our child having it all over his hands, clothes, and then his balance bike grips, NOT IMPRESSED, and then low and behold, while waiting for our takeaway food on Saturday night, a group of people walk up, one woman has 2 huge st Bernard’s and some sort of blood hound or sausage dog and precedes to walk through the waiting people, straight through the opening into the children’s play area, where the dogs proceed to start crapping on the grass, UNBELIEVABLE, she picked up the ones that we saw but you only have to miss a bit and it’s trodden in then trodden all over the kids stuff, who knows what happened when she went further into the play area, I was fuming but the wife didn’t want a scene so she just talked to the staff who were also less than impressed, so if you do take your dogs ( we have 3 of our own) DONT TAKE THEM INTO THE CHILDRENS PLAY AREA

Peaceful & beautifully kept, great for dogs

What a fantastic site, so peaceful and well kept, layout is great and a very rural feel while being close to many places to visit. We had our two Goldies with us and they loved the dog walking field which is a top class facility (pity some owners don't pick up after their dogs). Great places locally and Wickham is lovely with great walks from the door. Definitely be back
