Spent 3 nights here. Never been before. But read reviews. Yep the place looks like its had its best years, could do with spending a few job on it. But its one of the most friendliest place I've been too for a long while. Lots of hard standings or grass, pitch where you want, , club site got free webb. Dogs allowed in club house. Various events on in evening. Very friendly staff and customer's. Toilet block adequate. Showers hot. Free. Lots to do in area. Submarine museum. Diving museum. Beach. Portsmouth over ferry. 24 per night. Yes I would return.

Visited this site some years ago and it was bit scrufy then sorry to say it was worse stayed on the large field which had lots of litter from previous users not the camps fault but they should have sent someone to clean up used tissues etc looked like they had been there a while.

As this was a peak holiday period there were very few units on site could this be due to the above or the Road noise was constant didn't get much sleep the toilet block is in need of re vamp or deep clean this site;s location is perfect cant faut it for convience but bit pricy will visit again in the hope they have improved the standards.

We stayed here over the Easter break. We booked without reading any reviews first and when we read them we wondered what to expect! We need not have worried

We arrived and were told we could pitch wherever we liked on a hard standing, and there were quite a few pitches available.

There is a club/pub which we had a drink in, the food looked god but we did not try it. The site is within walking distance of Stokes bay and Lee on the Solent. There is a bus stop outside which we used to go to Gosport and then caught the ferry to P Portsmouth.

On the day of departure there was no pressure to be off by a certain time which was good.

The only criticism is the touring field is tired. The grass between the pitches needed cutting, there were some wooden barriers that had been left where they had fallen etc. The showers are in a wooden lodge type building and they were a bit cobwebby and the shower cubicles needed some serious elbow grease and mould killer. ( Take a pair of flipflops as the floors were a bit grotty). An extra hook on the door or a shelf in the cubicle would be good as they are very small and there is no curtain to keep your clothes dry and one hook isn't really enough to put your clothes, towel and wash bag etc on. Having said that the showers were hot and powerful.

Some of the comments mention nothing for children to do, we took ours and they were fine, if you want a play park etc then book a site with one! The children were welcome in the club and there is a small amusement arcade attached.

We would return.

Very warm, clean toilet blocks. Plenty of hot water with soap dispenser and hand dryers.

Need to bring a sink plug if you want to wash using basins.

Didn't use showers, but they were clean, but need to be careful where you put your clothes to avoid getting wet from shower,

Good sized hard standing pitches.

There was a lot of very heavy rain during our stay, but site drained well, in the circumstances.

Good location for walking, with Stokes Bay being an easy 10 minute walk, with good shoreline walks from there.

Bus stop right outside site entrance, with frequent services to Gosport/Fareham/Lee on Solent, etc

Good selection of real ales, etc, in spacious lounge, and all drinks very reasonably priced.

Only had one meal there, which was freshly made and very good value.

Friendly atmosphere in lounge, and site staff were also friendly and helpful.

Free wifi, but only available in the lounge, not elsewhere on site.

Good site for caravans and motor homes, but traffic noise might not be great if in a tent.

Reviewer: Riverboat2001 5 reviews from this member

Have just returned from a weeks stay in our motorhome at this site.

We arrived after reception closed so we were made very welcome by the bar staff, who booked us in just fine.

We have quite a large van, and the branches were scraping the roof on the way in, they could do with a trim!

The touring area is quite large, but feels very neglected, with at least one hook-up point fallen over and taped off.

The pitches themselves are quite large and most have a hose-length access to a waterpoint, so that's handy. They are all hardstanding, and appear to be level.

The toilet/shower blocks were clean and heated.

However, there are no shower curtains, and no way to separate your clothes from the shower part, there are also no hooks and no ledges to put your stuff on.

There is a manhole with handles attached for black waste.

We were charged 24. 50 per night (three adults) which for the site was very expensive for all the above reasons. I would say 16 per night would be more appropriate.

The best thing about the site is the clubhouse/bar, it wasn't 'clicky' and everyone was friendly towards us. They have quiz nights and bingo, and there is a restaurant, but we didn't try the foods as its only open for a few short hours.

Helloooo, we are from New Zealand and just finished travelling around England and Wales (over 2 months). We arrived on a windy/rainy day to kingfisher and the lady at reception was very welcoming. She put us in a spot where we would be sheltered from the wind and went out of her way to help us. The bathroom facilities were great. Especially the heating in the bathrooms. The pitch was great, drained well (however, we were not in the tenting area but caravan area due to the weather) so unsure what the tenting area would be like. This site is a great location to catch the ferry over to the spinnaker tower and that surrounding area. The site also has a pub on it - good range of drinks and nice atmosphere.
