 Lovely little site,

Rosemary the owner was very nice and helpful, have read on other reviews regarding traffic noise, personally after a couple of hours I never even noticed it,

And it was not excessive, and night time was very quite, loved laying looking at the stars, site where we were was pretty flat,

The toilet and shower were not in use due to virus,

Nice chilled time

Will definitely go again

 For me this site is difficult to sum up.

The owner Rosemary was very pleasant to deal with both pre booking and on site when I went to pay.

£28 for two nights with electric seems reasonable but what do you get for that.

Basically we got a field to park in with grass clippings all over it that get trod in everywhere, in the van in the car all over toilet cassette when you wheel it to empty it, all over the waste water unit, literally everywhere, stay here for one night only and it's a sweep your caravan out job when we left.

Road noise is horrendous, there seems little let up, we stayed Friday through to early Sunday.

There is a small hut that once served as a tourist information point, it's now a home to spiders and other insects and a huge mound of grass clippings, leaflets old mouldy and several years old.

The entire site comes across as unloved, rock up give us your money depart at will in the meantime we will do nothing to make your stay comfortable.

And in twenty five plus years of caravanning the first and only site I have stayed at that don't have bins or anywhere to take your refuse, is that even legal.

Rosemary lovely, the site woeful, I suspect the owners know that.

 This is not a criticism of the owners

The road noise was not good as we were right next to it, very busy most of the day and night so two nights not very good sleep

The site has a double gate which you have to have someone to hold it open or it will swing shut on you could do with a peg

The area is nice if you have a car as walking along the road was really dangerous with two dogs

The site is clean and seems friendly, only saw the owner once when we arrived

£12 a night non electric was ok as we have solar

Maybe stay again but would definitely take ear plugs

Donít forget to take your rubbish home as no bins

 Lovely and quiet. A real nice site for camping/caravanning.

Really nice not being pushed off site on the last day, that finished the weekend off nicely.

Thank you very much Rosemary.

 Well to say this Site is Basic is a bit of an understatement! Itís as close to Wild Camping as you can get.

Except for the Fee £14 per night. For that you get one water tap (only one) and a chemical empty pit thatís it. It has Electricity if you can find the Owner to switch it on.

The field is far from level and the grass had been cut but cuttings not picked up so grass cuttings everywhere in the Awning and in the van, ended up having to take up all the carpets, . Most people on this site appeared to be semi permanent with Grass up to

The wheel archers. If you have a long outfit the access is not great and you will need someone to see you through the second gate as they will swing shut against your outfit putting a nice Dent in it. One last point

If the field is very wet and you are at the far end, you may need a 4x4 to get out, Donít bother with the Owners as they are never there.

Graham and Jackie. (stay safe and keep of the wet grass LOL)

Reviewer: Sonjudwen 14 reviews from this member

 We needed a site close to fareham, this was £12 a night with electric. We were situated in what was like a residents field, this was no problem and there was plenty of room around us.

The owner met us pleasantly and we never saw them again. It was ideally situated for our needs but the road outside was very busy so a stroll to the Titchfield Abbey or the nearby pub was very risky along this road.

Also there are no rubbish bins, 'take it home with you as it would cost £400 a month' we were told.

 Lovely friendly owner and a beautifully kept site. Not far from the nearest pub The Fishermans Rest and the Mill is a little further with delightful Titchfield within a fit persons walking distance. PS there's a deli/butcher to die for there.

The Abbey is next door and a garden centre and aviary too so you're spoilt for choice.

However, if you're thinking of having a quiet relaxing stay you may be disappointed by the sheer volume of traffic using Mill Lane on the other side of the hedge particularly on week days, extremely busy to walk along and I didn't risk it with my two dogs. Two of us walking a dog each on Saturday wasn't so bad as the traffic wasn't so heavy. You can also hear road noise from the Mway and the dual carriageway.

Having said that the views are lovely and it is well screened. The gates are a bit fiddly but keeps the site secure. There are hook ups our friend paid £5 for the weekend and only used £1. 50 of it - it's not refundable.

Ideal as a base there's a wealth of things to do in the area. Would definitely recommend to anyone who didn't dislike traffic noise as much as us.

Didn't have any children with us so can't really comment on whether there were any facilities for them but there was a lot of space for playing under supervision.

Reviewer: Wruthie 7 reviews from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Philz55 12 reviews from this member

 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.
