Two Hoots is located off the A31 between Winchester and Alton, 4 miles from New Alresford in Hampshire. We are situated on a single width country lane with few passing places. Because of this we have staggered arrival and departure times so that we don’t have vehicles passing to and from the site at the same time.
Arrival time after 3 pm, departure before 10:30 am if in Pods or 12 noon for caravans and motorhomes unless otherwise agreed.
Booking is essential.
Directions by Road
We are in rural location where our postcode covers a number of properties spread over quite a large distance. Because of this, sat navs take you about a mile past the campsite unless you use our POI. The best approach is via the A31 to the bottom of Bighton Hill at Ropley then follow our written directions up Bighton Hill marked below **
Please note for all towed vehicles: Access is via the A31 onto Bighton Hill only. All other roads are unsuitable for towing.
