This was not our first visit to Morn Hill, but it is a nice site, with friendly and helpful wardens. As a site it is quiet, but unfortunately very close to the busy A31 and the traffic noise can be extreme. However the proximity of the road means it is well positioned to get to the M3 and A34 in about 5 minutes. For us the location is positive, as we have family living a couple of junctions South just 15 minutes away.

On the day of arrival the site was very wet, with some pitches and one whole area shut off, following a winter of heavy rain. We had rain while there so it was a little muddy at times, and impossible to keep the car clean! There is plenty of room on the pitches for a large caravan plus awning - although on this visit it was not awning weather! Entrance to the site is with an allocated proximity card, giving a good feeling of security. Facilities are excellent, although there appears to be intermittent issues with the water temperature. I reported this on one occasion and it was immediately investigated.

As mentioned by other reviewers the site is split by a private road, but once you have settled onto your pitch, this separation actually gives the site the feel of being smaller than it actually is which we like.

Hinton Ampner House & Gardens (National Trust) is worth a visit - less than a 20 minute drive away. Unfortunately no pubs in easy walking distance, but we would recommend The Chestnut Horse in Easton a short drive away. Good food, beer, and friendly staff in a proper pub. They can recommend a 'friendly' taxi company.

Morn Hill is a site we will use again given the proximity to Winchester and family near Southampton.

We stayed here for a weekend and went to the nearby Watercress Line steam railway for a Day out with Thomas (the tank engine). So this was all about location for us.

The site itself is fine, but the toilet facilities are more dated than most caravan club sites we have used. Biggest issue though was the size of the shower cubicles, when trying to shower with a child it was a nightmare. But they were clean, and the water was nice and hot.

The road was very noisy from 8am Sunday morning with a lot of motorbikes, might be an issue if you like a lie in!

Nice site.

We were pitched on the lower level site. Right at the bottom. Nice pitch, but a steep climb to the loo's. Not a problem if you are fit and able though.

Facilities were clean, and waste and water very convieniently located.

Very convienient for the Winchester Science Centre, where we spent a whole day. Fabulous.

Only slight gripe was about the fish and chip van. Husband went off to get the tea on Friday. Was away ages, I questioned if they had sent him out to actually catch the fish. When he did return, the fish and chips were not of a very good standard. Might just be me, but can't stand soggy fish and chips.

I rated this site fairly low on child friendliness. No specific facilities for children, but mainly because the split location means to get to the shop etc, they have to navigate the road. Shame there is no path between the lower and upper sections. I guess there are issues with rights of way etc. OK for kids for a weekend though!

Fantastic site, wonderful clean facilities. Loads of showers and laundry facilities, the whole site was beautifully maintained and spotless. Small shop and local maps available. Close to winchester with local bus nearby. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Would certainly stay again and highly recommend.

We joined the caravan club in order to get the reduced rates, and the nightly rate was only 15, so 4 nights would have got our membership for the 12 months back!

The wardens on duty were very helpful, cant fault their service.

The site is split in two, very bizarre, but has toilet/shower facilities on both halves. Facilities were clean and showers were hot. All within easy access of most of the pitches.

The pitches were mostly level and only needed slight chocking.

Ideally situation for Winchester. We managed to find parking in Winchester for a larger campervan which was ideal but I understood from the wardens that there was a bus route close by.

Sadly the pub that used to be at the entrance is now a kitchen showroom.

Would I stay again. Yes.

Value for money. Yes

Clean/Tidy Yes

Helpful staff - very

Please note I'm very critical, location would only get a 9/10 if it were overlooking some fantastic view and facilities if it were heated floors /ultra modern facilities - so please take my ratings with a pinch of salt.

A well kept site oddly split into two halves by a private access road that runs down the middle. I stopped in the 'top field' by the reception and shop which is nicely surrounded by flowering baskets. The shop is ideal for last minute (or as in my case panic) buys; Tesco and Sainsbury superstores are not far away. Both fields are accessed via security barriers.

The site is adjacent to the A31 which, in the summer months, must sound very similar to the TT route on the Isle of Man - clearly a popular motorbike area. That said come darkness it does quieter down. Winchester is 'just down the road' and is well worth a walk round. Access on to the motorway network is easy.

The toilet and shower block are adequate, though perhaps in need of an update. When I was there (September 2013) there was a notice to the effect that renovations would be done in the closed season.

The wardens were super - a quick wave and smile and always there to answer questions. I don't think they were locals but their local knowledge was excellent - even down to knowing bus times and costs to get into Winchester.

A fish and chip van comes on a Friday (I hope it does next year!) and these were gorgeous! What a treat and, to top it all, freshly cooked croissants are available on Saturday mornings in the shop. Who mentioned a diet?!

I walked round the 'bottom field' before I left just to get an idea of facilities there. Very similar to the top field - showers, toilets, washing up area etc etc and more flowers - all looked after by a second set of wardens. This is a quieter field, further away from the main road, this field also protected by a security barrier.

Both fields are nicely laid out without adjacent pitches not too close, the nice curves giving a pleasing look to the layout - the result is that one doesn't get the impression of over crowding.

Given that Caravan Club fees make a big difference to the overnight cost, value for money is excellent. I will be back in 2014.
