A very nice site. Nice, good value pub with great food selection. Nice children's play area outside and good games room inside. Swimming pool good size. Facilities on the whole very nice and spacious, when we arrived on the Friday everything was beautifully clean but unfortunately the toilet and shower block were not cleaned until Sunday so on Saturday they were pretty messy. This is the only slight criticism though but it wouldn't stop us going back.

Stayed over the bank holiday period. Stayed on electric pitch with two tents with pals. Very clean field plenty of water taps to get water from. Bins were dotted about so not much of a walk. Toilets showers and washing up room centred in the middle of the camp site which was very convenient. Also had a disabled toilet and shower and baby change room. Toilets were cleaned once to twice daily very clean as we're showers. There were 8 toilets in the females and 4 showers and considering it was a bank holiday we did not have to queue once. Large showers which were hot and had a separate part for changing with plenty of hooks so clothes and towels did not get wet whilst showering. The site itself was very near shops and super markets. Pool on site looked a reasonable size however was not open until June. Great golf range and cheap to hire out gold balls and clubs. Excellent pub on site with very friendly staff and lovely food at a reasonable price. Lots to do with a park for children out the back, 2 pool tables and a football game table. For the price paid 27 pound per head for a three night stay it was very good and I would recommend it to friends in the future. There was a bootsale across the road every Sunday morn and Monday. Did not experience other things to do locally as we had other things planned. However we drove one hour to the new forest and had a bike ride where it is surrounded with souvenir shops and restaurants.

Situated between a busy road and a railway line Wyke Down Campsite is not the ideal site for peace and tranquillity. An alarm clock will not be required as there will be a regular stream of traffic, articulated lorries, cars and motorcycles on one side and trains on the other, from around 4am.

Bring plenty of money and patience as these will be required.

The services are very basic for a site of this size and should everyone decide to have a shower or wash their dishes at the same time, the poor guy at the rear would be waiting a long time. The area seems quite pleasant but the traffic noise factor outweighs any benefits.

This is a fairly secure site with electric key access in to / out from the field. The field is open and exposed so think about door positioning when locating your unit. Caravans are quite closely spaced, some look like they haven't moved for years.

Checking in seemed a long and complicated affair - I was glad I was front of the queue. Quite why it takes so long is unclear especially as most of the detail is taken at the time of booking, not on arrival.

At the time of my visit there were a number of highway contractors and other workers living in caravans on the site so there were traffic movements day and night as the guys went off to or came back from work. This is ideal for them but it may not suit holiday visitors wanting a more relaxed regime.

The toilet and shower block leave a lot to be desired. The lights in the gents loo are activated by motion sensor which is fine until you've been sat contemplating life for a couple of minutes and then it all goes dark. A quick dance around the cubicle usually ensures the lights come on again but it is a bit disconcerting when it first happens and positively annoying at future instances.

The shower block could be a health hazard. There are four showers in the gents block, all served by one 4 inch domestic fan which is full of fluff. Consequently the walls and ceiling are covered in condensation meaning that your towels and clothes get soaked even before you get wet. Then there's the taps - press on types (which is fine) but with no means of controlling temperature. So that means luke warm showers. Unlike other sites, there is no step in the floor so all the floor gets wet; mud and detritus from shoes then gets into the shower area and your clean feet are now dirty again. I'm not very knowledgeable about hygiene but this place positively looks unhygienic.

Even the sink taps are badly thought out, again press on types, but they shoot out water at a great rate and then switch off after a few seconds. So it's difficult to wash without getting everywhere soaked trying to capture this great rush of water before it switches off.

The local pub is OK, simple food but expensive. Suggest you book in advance - the nights I was in there were only about 20 other people but it still took over an hour to get food.

This is a rural site so to get anywhere needs a vehicle. Andover is OK, Salisbury and Winchester much nicer with more attractions.

Overall - for the money - very poor. Without the use of the shower and toilet I wouldn't want to pay any more than GBP 6 a night.

Stayed here bank holiday weekend. Site was wonderful - views amazing.

Owners very friendly. Toilets and showers always spotless and although swimming pool was unheated, it did not stop our three daughters loving it along with the pub garden playground.

The electronic gate was brilliant, very easy to leave key card in box by reception when we left rather than having to wait to give it to someone. There was a car boot sale in field opposite on Sunday and bank holiday Monday.

All in all an amazing site, warm and welcoming we can't wait to visit again.

The only slight downside was lack of site shop-not really near any local shops - so bit tricky if you run out of milk !

Nice site with a good pub. Little bit too 'serious' - lots of rules. There were lots of caravans that appeared to be permanent - also a lot of workers from the nearby building site were staying, so we were woken up at 6 by them leaving for work. Toilets and showers good, nice and clean. No place really for kids to play although there is a nice pool. Nice views across fields and trees. I would recommend this site to older couples with no children.
