 This is a lovely site, spotlessly clean and close to Winchester. The field is large and not crowded at all. There is a small shop on site, selling milk, eggs and other essentials.

We could hear the road from the field, which is only a minor disappointment, as it is not a busy road.

Also, we were unfortunate enough to spend a very wet weekend at Holden Farm, and some parts of the facilities (not the actual field were we pitched) turned into a swamp. I am sure this would not normally be a problem, and the weather is obviously not the farm's fault!

Apart from those two very minor things, we enjoyed the weekend.

 This is an excellent campsite astride the South Downs Way. I stayed for three nights with two friends. It is popular with families, cyclists and backpackers. The management couldnít have been more friendly and helpful.

There is plenty of space and you can pick your own pitch, with or without a fire pit. There are plenty of fridges, kettle and ice maker. Only two washing up sinks. Lots of sockets for recharging phones. Signal erratic, as it is in the local area. Extremely clean and Covid-secure.

Lots of space in the central area for kids to play, but the grass can be quite long so welllies or waterproof shoes recommended to keep your feet dry. Very good recycling facilities. You can do some walks straight from the site. The Globe pub at Alresford has a lovely garden overlooking the river with very good food. Not far there is the Long Barn garden centre with an excellent cafe indoors and outdoors.

The site shop has a limited amount of items on sale. Lots of lovely birdsong - you can practise distinguishing between a wren and a chaffinch, not to mention a song throughsh! One evening there was a barn owl flying around - look out for it.

There is a constant sound of traffic from the main road, but it is not intrusive, and with ear plugs at night I couldnít hear it. The only thing I didnít like, and this is purely subjective, the showers and toilets are unisex. But I can see how this would suit families. There is not much space between the wash hand basins and the toilet cubicles. The showers are of the push button variety.

All in all I would recommend this site, particularly on weekdays when it is quieter.

 Backpacking the SDW and this campsite was close enough to the path to avoid a massive detour.

Excellent communication re booking and welcoming and flexible attitude to hikers.

Good vibe all round, kettles and electrical charging points available.

Toilets / showers clean as was site generally.

Saw people who seemed to use this as a relatively local getaway site.

Basic but Very Nice!

 A very clean, toilets showers etc, all modern.

The owner was delightful, nothing was any trouble to her, help with directions etc

I would highly recommend this site which is right on the South Downs way

 Really nice site, friendly staff and a warm welcome. Camp ground is in a large field on a working farm.

We stayed for 2 nights and had a fire pit which was great. The site had a few essentials for sale, hot coffee, cold ice cream and firewood as well as the all important marshmallows for toasting.

Pitches were a good size with more than enough room for our car, tent and my amateur radio antenna with room to spare for our dog to run around the pitch (tethered of course).

For any amateur radio operators reading the pitches are far from buildings and there was no background noise on any band.

A great site, we will be returning.

 Excellent chilled site. Clean loos, showers and washing up facilities. Fridge, freezer and ice maker too.

Love the fire pit. Loved watching all the stars. So many lovely walks along nearby.

 We stayed at this site the first time we camped in our campervan. We chose it as it was late in the evening & we needed to camp before driving home. The site was accommodating for our late arrival.

The field was extremely quiet as it was midweek, but seemed really large regardless. The site is tidy & well maintained, & the lady we dealt with was friendly.

The facilities were very clean, but we didnít use the showers so unable to comment. As this was our first camp we didnít really have anything to compare it to. We have since stayed at another 3 sites.

I believe we paid £30 for 1 night with a 3 year old & 4 year old. This now seems expensive, but the site was very nice, & it may be similar to the going rate for the area (we were a 4 hour drive away from home).

Unfortunately we canít be too subjective on this site, as our stay was very brief due to needing to head off quickly in the morning also.

 An excellent little site! Only stayed the one night as we wanted somewhere relatively close to home to test out our equipment after a long break.

Friendly and welcoming staff and a lovely open field with a choice of pitches - worth paying a little extra for a firepit pitch. Facilities are simple but spotlessly clean and well maintained.

There are toilets, sinks and showers next door to a washing up area plus communal fridge/freezer and ice machine. Power points are available for charging your mobile.

The shop in the office is very limited so do try to bring everything you need, although you can pick up firewood and marshmallows for the all important campfire.

Definitely worth a return visit - we'll be back next year!

 What an amazing find, we spent a lovely 4 nights here.

This lovely campsite is a large field on the gentle rolling South Downs, having said that there is plenty of flat ground to camp on.

We were free to choose to pitch where we wanted, fire pits dug into the ground ready for use and regularly cleaned out. Although we don't have young children there was plenty of space for them to enjoy themselves.

The facilities were clean, and hot water readily available everywhere.

We will definitely be back, for a little longer next time!

 I arranged a weekend of camping here with a group of friends based on the recommendation of some of the group who had visited before; my positive experience started when I called the campsite with a query about booking for a group and was met with a friendly and helpful response.

I really appreciated their flexibility when I didn't know how exactly how many people would be in my party at the time of booking, this was much appreciated.

I found the camping field to be spacious; we were arranged around the outside of the field with the centre left empty. Even though the site was apparently fully booked, there was plenty of space and good separation from the other pitches. The firepit and short cut grass around it is a good design.

The facilities were simple and well designed. Toilets and showers were always clean and there was never a queue for either. The showers were of a simple design but had lots of hooks and plentiful warm water.

The communal fridge and freezer were a boon considering that we visitied in a heatwave. The small ice maker was also very welcome but probably best to bring ice bags if visiting during hot weather. Dish washing was undercover, clean and with a good supply of hot water. On-site staff were helpful and friendly.

Thanks for helping us to have a great camping trip!
