The Central Southern England region

Bordered by Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex, Hampshire is ideally located in the south east of England and is the gateway to the Isle of Wight. Its excellent transport links makes it an easy getaway from London and the home counties for a day visit, as well as an ideal destination for a longer stay with hundreds of attractions to explore, varied landscape and two national parks.


The unique Watercress Lodges & Campsite is a fantastic new self-catering holiday retreat overlooking the South Downs, situated only 3 miles from New Alresford and the River Itchen, nestled in the beautiful Hampshire countryside. Watercress Lodges have the unique privilege of being located alongside a working steam railway. Thomas the Tank Engine weeks are a particular favourite with families.

"Clean and well facilitated accommodation in a quirky but brilliant location"

We stayed in the "Winchester" lodge which was well equipped and extremely well presented. Our time there was very comfortable and the people running the lodges were very helpful and delightful to chat to.

Alresford is a great place to visit whilst in the area.
