Rookesbury Park Caravan Club Site, Hundred Acres Road, Wickham, PO17 6JR, Tel 01329 834085
To Find Site:- From Portsmouth direction on M27 leave motorway at junction 10 and follow A32 in the direction of Alton. At the roundabout past the Wickham village sign continue on A32 and after about a quarter of a mile turn right at sign for Hundred Acres, Newton. Turn left in about three quarters of a miles at the CC site signs into long drive to site. The drive is narrow in places with passing places so care required. From Southampton direction leave M27 at junction 11, cross motorway and rejoin M27 towards Southampton and exit at junction 10 and then as above. ( Sat Navs are inclined to take you from the motorway at junction 11 via North Boar Hunt, this road is quite narrow in place so you may wish to over ride!)
This members only site is set in 15 acres of undulating countryside surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. There are 154 pitches plus 15 set aside in a separate area for short stay use. (Rookesbury Park is only a few miles from Portsmouth and the Western Channel ferries.) The majority of pitches are on grass but there are 56 hardstandings. There are two toilet blocks and several service points. Reception sells newspapers and other essentials. Children are well catered for as there is a massive play are, albeit on a slope. Likewise for dogs there is a large walking area. Mobile reception was difficult but not impossible. Television reception (with a Status) varied a lot. One day you could have a perfect picture and the next the same channel would be poor. Date of visit May 2007.
Rookesbury Park is about midway between Southampton and Portsmouth and is convenient to the M27. Both cities offer many attractions but perhaps Southampton would be considered the better shopping destination. Not too far from the site at Hedge End is a large Sainsburys and M&S.
