Church Paddock: A shot of the lake

General

  • Peaceful lakeside setting in Hampshire countryside near Winchester
  • A 10-minute drive to Winchester Cathedral; the New Forest 20 minutes
  • 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.

Please note

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

    We had a great stay at Church Paddock. Absolutely loved our time on the site, which is quiet, peaceful, and very pretty. Everyone at the camp site made us feel really welcome, they were kind, and told us about things we could do locally, gave us Vistong (which was delicious), and generally went above and beyond. We're already planning our trip back next year!

Excellent hidden gem with a laid back vibe.25/10/2021

  • Liked: 

    This place is a hidden gem, offering the beauty of a peaceful lakeside setting as well as the picturesque town of Winchester just a stone's throw away. With plenty of space to pitch, friendly staff and wildlife and a laid back vibe, this is a site we will return to again. Chill by your fire or enjoy a full English breakfast in the cosy, wooden shop/café. Book a fly-fishing lesson or treat yourself to delicious fish products, smoked on the premises. Plenty of hot water to wash up, a clean toilet and little extras like a kettle, fridge and microwave in the compact field kitchen. CCTV and security gates at night mean you can relax and enjoy your stay.

    Disliked: 

    Minimal tweaks would make this place the perfect site. Showers would be very welcome, although hot water for washing is readily available. Better promotion of how to book and all the features would be really useful.

    Really lovely little spot. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a cold beer that didn't cost the earth and spent a beautiful sunny afternoon watching the wildlife over the lake. Easy to get to with a lovely little pub close by. The site itself is very well taken care of and nicely presented. The toilet was spotless. We went late in the season and almost had the site to ourselves. You can arrive and leave at anytime so no crazy rush to get the tent down and off site by 10:00am the next morning. Great value.

    Lovely location only a few miles north of Winchester city centre. Church Paddock is a trout fishery with a largish flat field for tents adjacent to the lake. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The facilities include a large toilet/washroom (unisex), a tea/coffee making area overlooking the lake, complete with microwave. There are no shower facilities - as stated in the site's description - which is fine for those who's needs are simple and basic. Very picturesque spot. Very happy to have stayed there.

    Owner was very friendly but not overbearing which was nice - when we arrived we were given the option to pay the remainder of the fee which we did. The owner clearly explained the amenities and the passcode for the gate so we could come back into the grounds after lock up.

Local attractions

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.
