Yes, that's correct: grass with electric hookup tent pitch at a Caravan & Motorhome Club site.

Firstly, getting there. The entrance roundabout/turning is busy and somewhat confusing - keep your eyes open & wits about you!

Arrival. We had booked in advance so reception staff weren't unpleasant but still rather too keen to read a list of rules rather than offer a friendly welcome.

Cars are NOT allowed to remain by the tents but have to stay in the main car park. We were quoted health & safety which given the assorted combinations of cars/ caravans/ awnings/ motorhomes/ drive away tents/ pup tents etc on the other pitches was somewhat strange.

The pitch was level and well sheltered by a large hedge. There is a constant background rumble of cars which will bother lighter sleepers.

Water & waste bins were adjacent.

The toilet block was a 2 min walk. It was always clean though somewhat 'tired'. The two ladies showers were very small (you needed to be quite agile to dry yourself!) and would struggle to cope with a full site.

There is plenty of tourist info available.

It takes about an hour to walk in Winchester along a pavement beside a busy road so you may prefer the bus?

We visited the Cathedral £8. 50 for a ticket that lasts a year. The free guided tour was excellent: think St Swithun, Jane Austen & Antony Gormley statue.

There is also a Science Centre within walking distance of the campsite but it looked as if it was aimed at primary school ages so we gave it a miss. The shop has lots of bits and bobs that will make good Christmas presents.

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.

Spent 4 nights here early in Sept. Loved the site, very peaceful (dispite the A31). It had the feel of camping years ago, very relaxed and friendly. The Wardens were great, they had made a real effort to make the site look colourful and welcoming with lts of hanging baskets that looked great. Yes, the facilities are dated but they were kept clean and the Wardens did the best they could with them. The bus service to Winchester was very convenient and The Golden Lion pub was very nice with god food and friendly service. Will definitely be paying another visit.

Stayed twice last year en route to and from the Portsmouth ferry. Very clean, well maintained site, wardens efficient, friendly and helpful.

Glad to read from another poster that the older, lower field bathrooms are to be renovated. There had been extensive delays caused, they said, by waiting on approvals from planning. Short walk to bus stop to Winchester - what a lovely city that is and so interesting. Recommend the city walk with tour guide from the Tourist Office (near the bus station). There are a number of options. Don't remember how much the fee was but not pricey. Lovely pub meal at the Golden Lion just down the road. Really convenient for a short drive down to the port.

Nice site used as a stop over on out journey to I. O. W Southampton about 40 mins away. Facilities were clean but only 2 showers thought this could be a problem if it was busy. Reception staff pleasant and helpful directed us to a pub about a mile and a half away. There is a dog walk on the lower site and a fish and chip van on the friday night delicious!Didn't see a play area so can't comment on that. In reception were some basic provisions, would definitely stay again.
