This site was was a little hard to find, we drove past it twice before we noticed the sign behind a hedge! It's directly opposite a big woodburner shop if you have any difficulty. The site was well kept and the toilet/shower block was clean and spacious. I've put 7 out of 10 for facilities, as although the toilet/shower block was immaculate there were no other facilities. It was a bit noisy being on a main road and the pitch we had was just inside the hedge adjoining the road. It's also quite small and very popular due to its location. We spoke to another camper and she said she'd been trying to book for quite a while, but it was always full. There's a nice pub the Travellers Joy about 10 mins walk along the road where they do good food. We got a bus from the stop opposite and went into Portsmouth. We would definitely visit again, hopefully getting a pitch a little further in next time.

This site is ideally placed to explore the local area. The wardens are friendly and helpful. Frequent buses and trains are nearby, as are shops. Despite being very busy, and on a main road, the site itself manages to retain a peaceful atmosphere. Pitches, although not large, are adequate. Families and those with dogs need to be aware that there is no children’s playground or dog walking area.

I've visited this campsite several times over the past few years. It's in a great location for visiting Chichester/Portsmouth and as a result is extremely popular, especially for those with motor homes and caravans.

However, there are several drawbacks. The site is very close to a busy road and a railway line which can be a problem if you are a light sleeper. Also, partly due to the close proximity of the pitches, the wardens often find it difficult to maintain the correct distance between each unit. Some people may struggle to fit in a larger awning or even a large tent.

The site maintenance team changed last year and this year we noticed a tightening up on the rules which might not be a bad thing. Unfortunately we didn't appreciate the wardens walking around the campsite with a tape measure in the evening nor did we like the way we were reprimanded for slight rule infringements. A little more tact might be needed.

Overall though a nice little site, which is well run with free apples in the autumn! ☺

A very tidy and well maintained site, very close to many and varied amenities, Excellent bus service runs along the coast from Portsmouth to Brighton every 20mins. Only gripe is, on a site where the majority of units were Motor-homes, there is no motorhome service point, apart from that an excellent site we will return to I am sure.

We found the site easily having looked on google maps beforehand. The location was perfect as we wanted to visit several historical sites around Portsmouth.

Was surprised on arrival to find that the pitches are far smaller than the normal C&CC pitch size. We had taken our smaller tent and this fitted OK but our bigger tent and awning would not have done. We had asked for a pitch by the egde and were offered a corner pitch at the back of the site which suited us.

Facilities were the usual C&CC standard, clean and warm. Never had to wait more than a few mins to wash up.

The site is very popular with caravans and campervans, just three tents when we were there. The site was fairly full and there is not much room, luckily we were so busy every day that after we had eaten and washed up we went to bed. Otherwise our son would have been bored.

I have one main criticism of this site and it is the reason we will not return. It is incredibly noisy. Not sure if you are more insulated in a van (most reviews on here say noise not a problem but most are vans) but in a tent the noise levels are awful. Dogs barking in nearby houses, motorbikes on the roads until the early hours, trains from about 5am and the dawn chorus. Had it just been the birds no problem, we expect to hear those but we could not sleep for the noise.

We will be revisiting this area but not this site.

We always visit this site on our first outing of the year. It is very convenient as it's on a bus route the Chichester and Portsmouth. Lovely meals to be had at the pub which is right next door. However, this year we were very disappointed with the new wardens at the site. We were almost turned away as we had changed our motorhome since last year and the new one was half a metre longer than our previous vehicle which we had booked the pitch for. We were eventually allocated a suitably sized pitch but were not allowed to erect our awning, which was almost the sole purpose of our visit, to check if it would fit the new vehicle! After much deliberation we were suddenly given the choice of three other pitches! However we were not allowed to drive into the pitch, which would have given us some sunshine in the awning. The warden insisted we backed in as the awnings all had to face the same way! This resulted in the awning being in constant shade throughout our stay, so we didn't use it! Other campsite members were also complaining of the regimented way the campsite is now being run. Despite all of this we enjoyed wonderful Spring sunshine and visited Gunwharf Quays and the Isle of Wight during our stay. Such a pity that such a lovely friendly site has changed so much since we visited last year.
