We have just returned from a long weekend at this site, and must say it was very good. 

The pitches are numbered, very well spaced, and level, which still being new to caravanning was very helpful. The whole site is extremely tidy and well landscaped, with plenty of space for children to play, but for us it's main attraction was the views, you can see for miles. In fact we could even see the fireworks from Poole/Cowes in the distance. It's a very peaceful location, no traffic noise, with plenty of nice walks available, although a dog waste bin would have been useful. 

We generally use our own facilities, but did check out those on site, which were good quality, and extremely clean and tidy, although I think there was only a single mens & womens shower, didn't seem to be a problem, as I didn't notice anyone waiting. Also available in the shower/toilet block were leaflets on local attractions which was a nice touch. The waste disposal point was very discreet, located behind this building. 

EHU points are shared between pitches, which in our case required a long cable, which fortunately we have, but if not the owner/warden was more than happy to lend you one. The owners were very friendly, and issued us with a sort of welcome pack on arrival, and provided a key for the locked entrance gate, which provides security to the site. 

We enjoyed visiting Salisbury, although parking can be difficult and expensive, but there is a park & ride service nearby. If you don't want to go into Salisbury there is a local shop, and a nice pub! 

Finding the site was very easy thanks to the supplied directions, however once you leave the main road, you'll soon be greeted with a long and bumpy drive to the site, along a poor gravel track. Too be honest this was the only negative point for us having a saloon car, although if you have a SUV or 4x4 then I guess it wouldn't be an issue. Hopefully the owners will be able to improve this over time, or at least fill in some of the worst holes

I would highly recommend this site, especially for those that enjoy escaping to a peaceful site, with good scenic views, and countryside walks.
