Has anyone got any recommendations for caravan storage near Portsmouth/Southampton area. This would be for year round storage. We would be travelling in on the boat to either Portsmouth (most of the time), Weymouth or Poole. I have found via the CaSSOA web site Lucky-Lite Farm does anybody store their caravan here.

:D

Hi Maz,
We used to keep our van at Woodlake farm which is in Denmead. it's not a big facility and isn't cassoa registered but is quite secure. It's out of the way and therefore unknown to would be thieves and vandals. (Luckylight have had their fair share of these issues). Also we only paid £250 pa though I would imagine it would be more than that now. From what I understand, Lucklight charge arouns £600 pa. If you're interested let me know and I'll pm the phone number. As it's not a large site, he may be fully booked but it's worth a try. There are a number of these sites around the outskirts of Portsmouth but I can't put names to them. Oh yes, just remembered, theres another one in Newtown (not far from woodlake farm) who also keeps van undercover. It's called greenbarn. The website is for a cattery but it gives the phone number.

John thanks for that but it cannot be as bad as Guernsey with width and length restriction and you need planning permission to park a caravan on your own property :( :(

It can be further down the coast towards poole or weymouth as the boat arrives there too?

Hi

I store at Lucky Lite in Catherington.

Very secure and I think they have some spaces at the moment. Have had no vandalism problems.

Easy access to A3M just off the Horndean jctn.

Different levels of access for different prices, all controlled with a fob. We pay 400.

Not as cheap as Denmead I understand.

Green Barn - be careful. It is OK but you are not allowed to get your own caravan out because they are so close together the owner of the farm has to do it. They are so close you can't get to the side of the van to get a wheel clamp on so could be iffy for Insurance should anything go awry.

There are also storage pitches at Ellerslie site (Fareham)but access is VERY tight. It is a bit cheaper than Lucky Lite.

Good Luck

SS

Thanks for that. I have spoken to Lucy Lite and they do appear to have places. Seems most people appear to be happy with them.

We used to store at Lucky Lite, it is well equipped and has good security, however, they decided to limit access to our area between October and March (if I remember correctly) so the 'van could only be taken out with prior agreement for servicing. We wanted year round access but found their rates extortionate. We voted with our feet and went to Ellerslie which is smaller and cheaper but only grass which could get a little slippy although we only had a problem once and the owners were more than happy to help with their 4x4. Now moved away from the area which has made us realise how expensive storage down there was!!

That's good value for down south. We looked at an indoor one and it was 600+.

Currently paying 400 for outside, removeable pre-Easter-November on CASSOA gold at Lucky -Lite

That doesn't seem too bad, we pay 250 pa outdoor with 24/7 access. There doesn't seem to be a consistent charging system as a lot of sites charge what they can get away with, there have been numerous topics about this subject with some people paying upto 800 for outdoor storage.

Interesting thread this one, we currently use Lucky-Lite farm (and I have no issues other than cost), we only have the seasonal access (i.e Easter to Fireworks night) and would much prefer to have year round access, but just think there prices are a little too steep.

I'll definitely be checking some of the other recommendations out.

Thanks for all the info.

Be careful around that area, our friends van got pinched and insurance would not payout as site not visited daily.
Had all the locks, fob to access site cctv etc!
It was in the area of Bottesford Southampton.
Pls be careful as ferry is so close!

How can they not pay out, was it in the policy details that it had to be visited everyday. If not then they can't refuse the pay out.
