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.

So Helpful

This was our first time towing and setting up our new caravan. All of the staff on the site were extremely friendly and helpful. They immediately made us feel welcome and were on hand to help us setup and to make sure we got off to a great start! The fish and chip van on the first night was very welcome and the food excellent. The weather was awful but we felt warm and cosy. The facilities on site were warm and spotlessly clean. On leaving the warden was happy to come down and make sure I had set everything up correctly in order to tow the van home safely. Overall a great first time experience.

What a surprise

We were looking for a last minute site close to home and our "usuals" were full or closed, then came across Rookesbury. What a lovely surprise. A truely dog friendly place with handy "Pit Stops", a great play area if you have kids, and right next door to woodlands with plenty of walking. This site is now firmly on our list of "usuals"

Stayed longer this year

After spending just an overnight stop for the last two years we decided this year we would like to see more of the area, we were not disappointed, should have stayed longer than the three days we booked! We had a sunny hardstanding for our motorhome and even got a satellite signal for the TV. As soon as we arrived chairs out and lunch in the sunshine, just what it's all about! Loo block was modern and very clean as was the rest of the site with the friendly wardens working hard. We were extremely lucky with the weather managed to get into Portsmouth twice. The Spinnaker Tower is a must, lunch in the cafe below watching all the ferries coming and going in the amazing sunshine. Then up the tower (via fast lift) and a walk across the glass floor (don't forget the Club voucher to reduce the cost), just amazing views all round. You can have tea at the top of the tower but as the weather was so good I wanted to be out in the sunshine, so back to ground level boat watching with tea & scones.

Lovely

We love this site it’s such a lovely location staff are always friendly and helpful facilities always spotless. My only reservation is the tents in the centre pitches as some times noisy but won’t stop us coming as we love the site.

Rookesbury Park another great stay

With so much going on locally during the weekend we stayed the site was full. We pitched on a grass pitch which was fine. Wardens great, friendly but very busy maintaining the site and facilities. Just be aware that the M27 has got road works for some miles, which is no real problem, but the normal exit point is closed so you may well be diverted.
