General Description:-
The site is easily accessed with a reception that is manned throughout the day. The receptionist when we arrived was welcoming and informative but explained we would need to leave the site on Saturday the site was waterlogged and all dry pitches (not many) are booked for the weekend. It seems daft that a well established site has over the years done nothing to remedy what is obviously a quite serious problem during periods of bad weather. The site was never the less well kept.

Waterlogged pitch - as were most!

Toilets and Showers:-
There is a single facilities block that houses loos, showers, laundry, washing up room and information room all in one building and all kept spotlessly clean. All toilets are accessed from the outside, each being in a small independent room also containing a basin and all the necessaries, soap, towels etc., the showers too are each in an individual shower room with a basin and chair. Strangely half the toilets and showers are signed for ladies and half for men - why when they could be unisex?

There is a washing machine, a drying machine and an iron all either new or in tip top condition when we used them. The cost was very reasonable at £3.00 per wash and £1.00 per 30 mins drying time.

Washing Up:-
There is a washing up area in the laundry room.

Swimming Pool:-

There is no restaurant on site, but that in the marina (same owner) next door is recommended by the site staff although it has very mixed reviews on Google. We did not try it.

In dry weather this is a pleasant site that although with little within walking distance is close to Southampton and the Solent. It is close to the ferries at Portsmouth so makes an ideal stopover when going to Spain or Brittany.

The site is an ACSI member so we used our card and paid the discounted price of £52.00 for our four night stay, just £13.00 per night.
