Stayed for one night here before going to the Isle of Wight the following day. Was very easy to get to and find. As previous reviews states, you are given a key to the gates to let yourself in and out. Yes, a good idea to keep secure but a pain to do and as it was so windy it was hard to pull both bits back together to lock before the wind took it.

No toilets but that's fine as we just take our own.

We stayed in a vauxhall Vivaro van with a driveaway awning and went into the far corner under tree for a bit of shelter from the wind.

Cheap at 10 per night we thought this was very reasonable.

Lots of places locally to visit. Recommend a trip to Lee on Solent for the views and there promenade.

Would recommend to others looking for somewhere around the area to stay as long as you have your own facilities.

Owner was very helpful and friendly on arrival too.

Just spent 3 nights here and all the previous reviews are pretty accurate so I will not repeat what they have said. This site is excellent value at 8pn or 10 with ehu. Pitch size is generous with good grassed area not worn or dead due to awnings. Don't forget your levellers though as there is a slight slope. Location is great 5 mins off M27 and convenient for Southampton or Portsmouth. The sight entrance is not well signed so take it slowly on Mill Ln. A small cabin on site with homemade chutney and local info leaflets. I can't say much more really other than repeat what others have said so if your looking for good value choose Drove Lea Farm.

Good site, near two pubs, the Fisherman's Rest and the Titchfield Mill. Very friendly owners, gas exchange available, relatively flat.

You are a given a gate key so don't forget to put it through the letterbox on leaving!

No loos so your caravan must have facilities, but, of course, there is an Elsan emptying point.

Note that electricity is 'allocated', i.e. included in the 10 fee, the owner will give you 1 night's worth of power onto your metered hook-up point, which, because it was cold, and we were using elec heating, expired at 08.00 but we were only passing through, so it's not an unreasonable deal.

The ancient Titchfield Abbey next door is worth a visit, too.

All in all, very good!

Nice little site comprising of two fields with electric accessible by a locked gate which you are given a key to. Very cheap 10 p/n which included electric although it did run out the morning we were leaving but we just used the gas. You can hear road noise but it's not really that bad. Can still hear the birds singing their heads off ! And horses neighing ! Lovely view of Titchfield Abbey. Village 10 min walk. We walked the back route as safer. Some cars flew down Mill Lane. Had a scrumptious meal at Fisherman's Rest Pub. Lovely beaches 10 mins in car at Lee-on-Solent and Hill Head. Pretty area. Biggest down side is nowhere to put your rubbish ! We had to take it home with us although the owner did say there was a tip just up the road. Only a tap and a place to empty the loo. That's it !. If you like basic and actually use your van's bathroom like we do, it is perfectly fine ! Met some really friendly people and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

If you are looking for camping/touring on a budget then this is your place. At our time of stay it was 8 per night in our motorhome. We wouldn't have been able to afford the trip at the prices charged in all the other sites in this area.

The site is extremely accessible, well maintained and the owner goes out of his way to be friendly and helpful.

Your facilities are running water, chemical disposal and electric hook-up (4 lasted us three nights with plenty to spare). In a motorhome you don't need anything else. There is no rubbish disposal so you need to take this away with you and the site is on a busy road, but this is the pay-off for the budget prices and didn't bother us at all.

The area is bursting with magnificent scenery, nature reserves, shore line and a host of tourist attractions. It is also a great place to Geocache with plenty of circular walks, some fully accessible on bikes. The village is a short walk, very quaint and pretty with a Co-op and One Stop shop for convenience.

We will be using this site again.

Nice quiet site. There is a locked gate for security and we were given a key. There is a pub/restaurant 'The Fisherman's Rest at the just down the road. We ate there and really enjoyed the food. Good choice and reasonable prices.

Opposite the pub there is Titchfield Abbey. Nice to wander around and free entry. The site is about 10 minute walk into the village of Titchfield. It is a very quaint village with a few shops and pubs.

The site is around 6 miles from Portsmouth. We drove into Portsmouth and visited the Historick Docklands. Parking was easy.

The site is very basic and does not have toilets or showers but does have electric hook up if required (you prepay for power and can request more if it runs out).

Also does not have rubbish bins so you need to take your rubbish home. However, at 8 per night is really good value. I would recommend this site and would love to return again sometime.
