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.

Good site, excellent wardens, felt safe

This was our third visit in 6 years. Excellent site plus onsite staff were very helpful and offered sound advice. We walked into wickham using site shop guide and enjoyed good meals at the Square Cow and cream teas at Lilies,s both in the square. Chesapeake mill is worth a visit and has a good cafe. Of note is the Roebuck Arms is a relatively short walk through the woods and is under new management - we enjoyed their lunchtime meal deals. Overall a very good holiday with lots to see in the area, recommended is the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Gosport and Portsmouth plus Nelson Fort, but note some parts were shut due to covid and advance booking required. Also worth a visit is Hilton Ampner National Trust gardens and the Watercress Line only a few miles further on from Hilton at New Arelsford.

Relaxing stay at lovely Rookesbury Park

Recently returned from a 4 night stay and we just love this site ! . The staff are so friendly and welcoming the facilities are kept immaculately clean & tidy. We enjoy all the walks through the woods and the easy access to the Meon Valley trail. Wickham is a pretty village with some nice tearooms and shops, a pleasant a three mile walk . Our second stay here since lockdown and find all the procedures put in place for social distancing etc...work very well and made us feel safe during our stay. Look forward to returning again to Rookesbury in the future :-)

Excellent, welcoming site

We normally stay at the site to visit the Southampton Boat Show as Premier Marinas run a park and ride from nearby Swanwick Marina. Despite the cancellation of the show we decided to come anyway. We arrived on Tuesday and were surprised how busy the site was and that all of the hard standing pitches were taken. We found however, a grass pitch with a gentle slop that meant that we did not require ramps to level our motorhome. The staff were excellent, friendly, welcoming and helpful. The facilities with enhanced cleaning were excellent. Despite the Covid precautions restricting numbers into the facilities there was only once during our three night stay that I found the block full. I walked to the other block and found this half full. The site is clean and well maintained and the staff are a credit to the Club. We will defintely be returning in 2021.

Relaxing & Peaceful site

We stayed at Rookesbury for 5 nights from 14th September. We arrived on Monday and did not have to move our Campervan until we left to go home on the Saturday. Site is located in a very quite sheltered area surrounded by trees - the woodland walks can be accessed through a gate at the back of the site and we walked each day we were there and found many different tracks to explore - excellent for a squirrel chasing dog. We also walked into nearby Wickham for breakfast using instructions supplied by the Wardens which only included crossing 1 busy road - the rest of the route is bridal/footpaths. Another walk through the woods that we would recommend is to the Roebuck Inn where we enjoyed a very substantial lunch served by friendly welcoming staff - even our dog was made to feel welcome. Our week ended with a fish & chip supper from the chip van that visits the site every Friday. Facilities excellent with extra restrictions working well and all the wardens always had a smile to greet you. Highly recommend this site if you want to arrive, set up and not drive anywhere for a few relaxing days.

Thank you Wardens

This was our first trip post lockdown, and it's fair to say we were apprehensive. The work done by the wardens, before the site was opened, and whilst we were there, made the whole stay feel very safe. Our week away was probably the most 'normal' week we've had since March. The site was busy but there's plenty of space at Rookesbury Park.
