Stayed here for a night as it was the nearest site we could find to catch an early ferry from Portsmouth, but wouldn't repeat the experience. Site had a bit of a strange feel about it - lots of large tents / caravans which mostly looked quite established, but not much sign of people. Trod in dog poo when setting up :-(

Struggled to attract anyone's attention on arrival. The site was in a sloping orchard and it was a bit tricky to find a big enough gap in the trees to push up the roof of our small van.

Facilities were quite dire - 2 women's showers but only one loo, and very tired-looking.

Arriving on site I was told there were plenty of pitches when in fact there wasn't. There are a number caravan outfits that appear to have people staying all the year round. Converted horse lorry and a coach and caravans with wood burning stoves. The toilet and showers are in a bad condition so I used my own shower. The electricity supply only supports 6 amps and tripped if 1kw heating and microwave was on. I felt that 18 pounds per night was a lot for what was being offered.

Fortunately I was only there for one night and would not stay again.

A word of warning also is that the lane off the road is narrow with no passing places and by the hotel there is a tree in the middle, then a tight right hand turn into the uneven field.

My wife and I recently purchased a caravan that was for sale in Fareham, we also booked into a caravan site in Fareham. On arrival at Ellerslie caravan and camping park we were about to hook up and journey another 8 miles to where our SatNav indicated our other stop to be. We were then approached by a young man who was very eager to help us as he could see we are obviously novices. He took a lot of time helping and advising us on the art of towing. It was a good job he turned up because as it turned out we were booked into his campsite (in the next field) so do not always trust a SatNav. We intended to stay 1 night but already we had made a friend with our neighbour. The next day we attempted to erect the awning and another couple offered their help with good advice. That was it for us we stayed another 2 days and cannot believe the friendship and help we received. We were told we could park anywhere we wanted facing any direction, there was very little noise on the site, maybe the odd train away in the distance. The M27 did not make any noise as there are roads nearer. The shower block was very clean as was all the facility's, yes I did have to push the button 2 or 3 times but I managed. We will definitely be visiting Ellerslie again and hopefully for a lot longer stay. It was a great beginning to our future caravanning career and if other camp sites are half as good as Ellerslie and half as friendly we will be very happy. Once again you know who you are a great big thankyou. See you soon.

We used this site 4 years ago and it is excellent for those wanting everything on their doorstep. But when we visited before we thought the toilets/showers needed updating. Unfortunately even after all this time, this has still not been done. No toilet paper, no hand dryer, no soap. Very old. Cobwebs everywhere. Although hot enough water to shower with, literally 5 seconds (I counted) and the water goes of and you have to push the button again. I understand the need to save water but give at least 10 seconds guys! Needs pulling down and re-building. I notice that this complaint keeps popping up for this site.

I think the owners should definitely think about re-investing the money they get from camping into making this a more attractive site for campers otherwise they will get less and less campers - as decent toilet and shower facilities are an absolute must for some campers. We are now on a different site and the difference is amazing.

Nice and clean and pleasant to use. Come on Ellersley, buck your business ideas up!

We've just returned following a weeks stay at Ellerslie Camping & Caravan Park and thought we should update the reviews. Although it would be nice to say that the less positive aspects of the site which are noted within previous posts have been rectified. I'm sad to say they haven't. The location, however, is great.

The site isn't regimented so when we arrived, mid bank holiday, finding a spot was a bit tricky. We eventually found a space under the apple trees which turned out to be perfect. Others that arrived later were not so lucky and they had to squeeze between other units so they could access electric hookup. This caused problems as there are no identifiable roadways between the trees and its possible to get blocked in. We saw the owners on the first day, checking that we'd paid, otherwise they didn't seem to venture into the camping field. Identifying pitches would make things much simpler for everyone.

The site isn't too noisy, you could only hear the M27 very late at night. People on the site were good and everything went quiet by 10pm.

There are two mobile phone masts about 10 meters from the site boundary which are very ugly.

The toilet block is pretty grim. The worst we've experienced in our 18months caravanning! Although its obvious the owners have updated the mens with some new sinks and mirrors the rest (mens and womens) were beyond basic. There was only one toilet in the mens block which was always dirty and didn't seem to get from one day to the next. The showers were hot and there was plenty of water but the cubicles were painted breeze block and very tired. The other amenities, laundry, washing up were of a similar standard. Dirty and in need of some serious TLC.

The site had no playground facilities but the abundance of trees meant the kids had something to keep them amused.

The site is within 10 minutes drive of Gosport Ferry which will land you within a few yards of the Historic Dockyard (HMS Victory etc) and the new Gun Wharf Quay Shopping Center which is the home of the Spinnaker Tower. The dockyard was brilliant and both of our girls (4-6) loved exploring the old sailing ships and learning about how people lived and died in years gone by. The site location was also good for visits to Southampton.

Overall, we had an enjoyable week but it had everything to do with the weather and location and less to do with the site and its facilities. I'm afraid we won't return unless we see better write ups.

A very good camp site for those who don't like the regimented side by side forest of white boxes style camps. This camp site does not have pre defined pitches as such, you just have to fit your unit/tent in between the trees in the orchard or around the perimeter wherever it fits!.

The shower/toilet blocks are clean and there is loads of hot water, there is a mini laundry room and plenty of electric hookups dotted around the site.

It is a simple small site with all the basics you need. 10 minutes from the the sight is the local town with plenty of shops and restaurants there are also a couple of pubs nearby which serve good pub style food.

It is a good site to stop off at to break up a long journey, and it is very peaceful, I loved it and will definitely return.
