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.

Warning - Addiction to cake a real possibility!

Rookesbury Park Caravan Club Site
Beautifully sited woodland haven which belies the size of the site which has great forest walks on the doorstep, as well as a walk into nearby Wickham, yet close enough to road networks to get out and about and visit coastal attractions both east and west as well as the New Forest. The facilities were excellent, beautifully clean and maintained by the very helpful and friendly staff. Whilst the weather wasn't the greatest when I stayed it was more than made up for by the location. ....and now a Warning!!...... they stock some seriously delicious cakes in their on site shop with such a selection that it really is rude not to try one or two.....or three or four or five!, you have been warned .

A wonderful find

Rookesbury Park Caravan Club Site
Friends who had stayed here several times before suggested we should stay at Rookesbury Park. Wow, what a lovely site. Although it is quite large it seemed quiet and intimate. The facilities are good and we really liked the layout.

Gem of a Site

Rookesbury Park Caravan Club Site
Great site,. staff are friendly and welcoming. We were due to stay on this site for a week ,but due to an accident to our mother -in -law we had to make our way home late on our second day. Facilities were first class and very clean The weather was great. Absolutely no complaints and we will be returning. And a big thank you to the club for giving us some refund.

A gem!

Rookesbury Park Caravan Club Site
Frequent visitors from North Yorkshire Coast, visiting family who live locally. Never thought of owning a caravan but started considering it as a way to have our own space on visits ‘down south’ as it were. Decided to look at local touring sites to see if there is one locally to our daughter before we actually purchased a caravan.....and Rookesbury is it. We viewed it 4/5 years ago on a ‘heaving bank holiday weekend’ thinking it can’t get any busier than that and would experience it under pressure! It was and remains a a lovely site, fairly large but spread out with different areas, everyone has their favourite area to pitch. We’re on our 2nd caravan now (Eriba Triton wasn’t big enough) and look forward to our frequent 2 or 3 week long stays. Previous staff team all moved to other sites at end of 2019 season which concerned me with no continuity but the team in 2020 were courteous and friendly and carried on the great work, and they have stayed on for 21 so all good. Please don’t be put off by scary reviews about access lane, if people observe exit/entry times all should be well and it improves your reversing skills if you do meet another rig which is highly unlikely!
