Welcome to Two Hoots Campsite. This is a quiet Adult only 1½-acre level grass site nestled in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, less than a mile from the famous Watercress Steam Railway, 4 miles from the quaint Georgian town of Alresford, 11 miles from Winchester and 12 from Petersfield. It’s a great base for exploring Hampshire’s many attractions. Booking essential.
This small friendly site is in a pretty rural setting and is lined from the lane with a bluebell copse. It has open views across grassland to the front with woods beyond and beautiful far reaching views. Two Hoots has the first Eco Friendly Camping Pods in Hampshire!
With a gravel roadway, hard-standings for winter pitches, electric hook-ups.
Two Hoots is currently run under the Camping and Caravanning Club with 5 caravan/motor home pitches. Non-members may join on site. Membership is not required for the four camping pods as they are seperate from the club and tucked into the copse adjacent to the camping field.
The site is well maintained; the grass is kept short and the site clean. We do not permit any ball games on site, keeping noise to a min & relaxation to a maximum.
