Reviewer: Fleetwoods 6 reviews from this member

This was our second trip here for Christmas through to New Year having first visited in 2012 and deciding to visit again this year as it is a great location for cycling around Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Southsea etc.

The site is owned by Bill and Stella and they are some of the friendliest and nicest wardens we have ever met.

The weather was stormy with floods and gales so we had to change our arrival and departure days to go with the weather, and they could not be more accommodating to our needs. On arrival Stella greeted us with a warm welcome and went out of her way to make sure she was on site when we arrived. She showed us to an extra large pitch she had reserved for our 8m van, but the waste was on the wrong side, so she allocated us a more suitable pitch with all the connections on the right side.

While we were there several people got their cars stuck on the grass area (which we really couldn't believe people could be so silly as to drive on in all the rain) and Bill had the patience of a saint pulling them off with his truck and mending all the ruts they made.

The weather was very unpredictable and we were quite worried about towing our unit home, being such a long unit, but Bill rang us on our mobiles and made arrangements for us just to pack up our van and leave it on the hardstanding and then he would tow it to his back garden and keep it for us until we could get back down and fetch it safely another weekend. We actually didn't need to take him up on his offer as the storm broke into a beautiful day on our departure so we set off early to get home, but Bill asked us to text them and let them know we were home safe.

The site itself has been improved since last year, with pitches being edged and made wider. The site is a little bland and featureless and could benefit from some flower beds, shrubs and perhaps some mini hedges in between some of the pitches just to give it some features and colour, however, I would imagine a lot of people stop over on this pitch for ferries to France, so perhaps there is just one of those sites that does not have longer term holiday makers.

It has excellent fire fighting equipment dotted all over the site, which is good to see, is lit at night, and has a nice large toilet and shower block, which are clean and well presented.

There was not a light over the elsan emptying point which made it quite dangerous at night, but once mentioned to Stella, she had Bill fixing a light up there the next day so well done for taking the feedback on board.

Perhaps some simple touches now need adding like a dispenser of hand cleanser in the Elsan shed so you can just clean your hands before touching the door handle of the toilet block to go in and wash them properly after emptying the elsan, and it would be easier to have some kind of bench in there to balance the toilet on, it is a little awkward, but the hose works well. Like that touch.

All in all I would go back again as its perfect for what we want to do and they are such a great couple.

This was our first visit to this site and It will not be our last.

Great welcome and taken to my hard standing pitch, The site is set out very well, Toilets very clean and the Showers very clean. Great location with Victoria Country Park a very nice walk away from the site. Found this walk in a small guide written by the site owner and given to me on my arrival. Very large Tesco on route from junction 8. Of the M27 to the site and a Fish and Chips just off route. We found the site very peaceful and the main road traffic is no problem and had a good night's sleep on both nights. Also dog friendly with on site walking area.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this campsite in a tent.

The owners, Bill and Stella, and staff were most helpful and informative at all times and genuine friendly people.

The pitching area is level, dry, large, and units widely spaced. Very quiet in the campsite, and I did not hear any traffic noise either.

Toilets and showers were always very clean, always paper in the toilet holders.

All the showers had all the fittings (the very necessary coat hooks ), none missing, as well as a fold down seat in the shower cubicle to use while changing (pity more places don't have this.

A wash room for pots/utensils with a freezer(, microwave, kettle, washing machines and tumble drier, A few basic supplies and milk in the main office/reception. (very big superstore a mile away)

Well sited for Southampton and the Hamble (the Itchin Toll bridge costs 50p (60p rush hour) and takes one quickly to the docks or city centre.

Will stay here again and recommend it highly to anyone visiting the area

Stayed 3 nights at Sunnydale Farm, Caravan/Camping site in Southampton, Hampshire, over bank-holiday weekend.

A group of us ( 14 in total, 4 Combi-Camp units and 4 tents and 2 dogs) were welcomed and all camped together.

The owners and staff were very helpful, the site well laid out, level and very clean.

New shower block and washing room very well stocked and clean.

Would def use and recommend them again.

Lovely campsite with everything we required. Stella was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had a big pitch and although at times had neighbours they were far enough away not to bother each other.

The showers and toilets were always clean and stocked with loo roll and soap. The laundry room was a great help as it was nice to use the kettle and microwave when the kids were tired and hungry.

We had very little noise from the road, air traffic or other neighbours but that is perhaps subjective.

Well placed near pubs and shops and we are definitely thinking of visiting again.

Excellent site: very pleasant welcome, well sign posted, great facilities including electric hook up, water etc. Toilets and showers nice and clean - entry by key pad. Pitches well spaced out - we were on hard pitch. Field at back for tents, also field where you can let your dog off lead (although there are loose chickens about so be careful!). We did hear the noise from the road when sat outside but it in no way disturbed us. We didn't hear any bird scarpers at the site (there 2 night) but did once whilst sat outside The Plough pub. Several pubs within less than mile or so walk.
