The Caravan Club’s Rookesbury Park site near Fareham in Hampshire is a gem.

I stayed there this week and it must have one of the most welcoming approaches on the network because as you top the rise at the entrance you see the whole site set out before you in wonderful parkland on the floor of the valley. The former royal Forest of Bere is the setting and it is really handy for Portsmouth and Southampton and indeed has a special area for ferry users arriving out of hours.

It is one of the many sites where you need to follow the directions in the Club’s handbook with scrupulous accuracy. I guess occasionally we all think we know best – but this is not the site to practice your Macho Instinctive Navigation as, be assured, it will end in tears!!
