Chose this site as it is listed as dog friendly. I would chose to say it is dog tolerant only. It is well patrolled by the 4 x wardens, who on one occasion asked me to tether my dog who was fast asleep. On one other occasion our indiscretion was because a warden did not like my dog urinating near a flower bed.

On the flip side children are allowed to cycle and skateboard against the one way system. On previous sites this has resulted in one child being knocked down. Dogs can be walked down a very narrow path.

The site is lovely in itself, with isolated pitches surrounded by overhanging trees. The toilets are spotless and clean. An ideal site for families with children. Not far from the main road behind a car dealership and garage.

It's a Caravan Club Site so you know its going to be well kept and clean! located on the side of a hill so a bit steep up to the showers and toilets especially if you are at the bottom of the hill as we were. Our pitch was almost level and the rest looked pretty level too. Some pitches were delightfully secluded and private. A bit out of Salisbury (about 6 miles) so you will need a car or plenty of energy to get there but they have a good park and ride system - although we drove into the centre and parked in the large central car park with no problem. Salisbury is a Lovely place which reminded us of York. We would probably try to get in the Caravan and camping Club site if we went again because it is much nearer.

Having passed Salisbury on numerous occasions we decided to make the city our first visit this year.

The Hillside Caravan Club site was a delight and even when full to capacity we did not feel crowded in any way. The facilities were a joy and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

On our way into the city we had noticed the Park & Ride facilities and decided to use the bus. What a good move. Armed with our Senior Citizen Bus Passes we had a free ride and no parking charges. Salisbury is a delightful market town and the river side walks were delightful. So many places to see in the area, good shops in Salisbury and a host of good places to eat.

Without doubt we shall be returning to Salisbury and the Hillside Club site soon.

A very well kept fairly smallish site. New amenities block kept n immaculate order as expected for caravan club.

The pitches are spread around a hilly area in small glades and are very secluded.

The roadway (one way) is narrow and needs care.

The wardens are very helpful and outgoing and obviously enjoy their tenure.

No children's facilities and the nearest shops are in Salisbury some 6 miles away.

The army air museum is a little way along the road towards Andover (Middle Wallop).

We visited in the 'value season' and found 51 for 3 nights a tad expensive for mid September.

The motorhome point is on the 'wrong side' for continental vans, a turn around and reverse operation is required for n/s mounted drain taps.

Booked this site late for the Easter Bank holiday break and stayed 4 nights.

This is a lovely small site with mostly groups of 4 to 5 vans in small alcoves (there are also a few areas with more vans). Most pitches have slight slopes but I didn't need any sort of levelling device.

We stayed near the bottom of the site (pitch 41) and it really is a very short walk (if you're able) up to the toilet block which was very well maintained. The size of the pitch was fine with our two berthed van, awning and kids awning annex. We had plenty of space to sit out in the evening and for the obligatory bbq.

There are lovely views of the rolling country side.

The dog walk was adjacent to the site and fine for our two dogs - you can walk down what seems like a footpath for a mile or so and there are a few open fields also.

In terms of location, we were about 6 miles from Salisbury and it felt like miles from anywhere. The shop sells only very basic items so you'll need to make sure that you're well stocked.

Salisbury traffic was terrible so avoid it if at all possible - we sat for 1/2 hour twice (admittedly on the Thursday afternoon before Easter and again on Easter Monday).

A word of warning, we drove to the site from Salisbury and missed the turning as it's just after the brow of a hill and sailed straight past it as it's not sign-posted until your at the site. It's about 2 miles down the road before you can turn.

Nothing on the site for kids but given that the New Forest is a short drive away it's not a problem. Mine are 12 & 8 and we had no problems keeping them occupied.

We visited Ober water (twice as it was so beautiful!) and Old Wardour castle (NT) where there are beautiful grounds for a picnic.

All in all, a site that I would recommend and return to.

This is a very nice site as it states, on the side of a hill. It is particularly nice because it offers small areas of 3 or 4 pitches rather than one big site. Previous reviews have stated that it is a fair hike to the shower block. I do not agree but then I like walking. If you are older and prefer not to walk then you will need a pitch on the green at the top of the hill.

This site for me is one that we will visit for a long weekend maximum. We only live 1hr away so it was a nice break for us, but I wouldn't like to stay there much longer due to having to travel to see POI's.

There is a dog walk to the side of the site, which I can imagine will get quite overgrown in the summer months.

A nice dog walk is at Danebury hill fort about 10 mins down the road.

All in all a great little site and we will definitely be going back. I can't judge the toilet blocks etc as we use our own.
