- Trout fishing on site; pub and farm shop with café five minutes’ walk
Situated on the outskirts of the historic city of Winchester, close to Junction 9 of the M3 for easy access, Church Paddock centres on a spring-fed fishing lake set in five acres of landscaped ground – and its handful of adults-only camping pitches all overlook the water.
You may not be able to bring the kids to this pop-up site (a little too close to the water for comfort) but dogs are most certainly welcome. Limited facilities include toilets with hot and cold water (but no showers), and a small utility area with a fridge to keep things fresh and a kettle so you can rustle up a cuppa. There’s plenty of secure car-parking space on site too.
On site, you can fish for rainbow trout, while there are a couple of golf courses (10 minutes’ drive) close by, as well as an indoor swimming pool (15 minutes) in case of any rainy days.
Hearty cooked breakfasts and snacks are available from the wooden hut when the fishery is open, and it’s five minutes’ walk to Headbourne Worthy village for a well-stocked farm shop (pick up supplies for the barbecue) and a café for a quick caffeine fix.
Close by, you can stroll to a pub serving yummy food (also five minutes) and don’t forget, historic Winchester (10 minutes’ drive) also has enough dining options to keep you going for days.

The ancient, mellow-stone city of Winchester (10 minutes’ drive) deserves a day’s exploration; you can tour the Gothic-era cathedral, check out the priceless 12th-century Winchester Bible, and stick with the history theme for a stroll around Wolvesey Castle. Coming bang up to date, Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium (10 minutes) offers 4D films and interactive science shows.
If you’re on holiday to escape city life, you’re close to the New Forest National Park (20 minutes) for scenic strolls through heath and woodland, with the chance to see wild ponies, or perhaps a potter around the shiny vintage cars in the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu (40 minutes). The South Downs National Park (10 minutes) also has its fair share of challenging walks over glorious chalk downs.
How about seeing the lie of the land from a vintage train? Pick up the Watercress Line at Alresford Railway Station (15 minutes) for a gentle meander through the Hampshire countryside – and there are plenty of themed events and dinners on board too.
