Reviewer: Saskia 1 review from this member

We loved this site & its eco friendly approach. We have stayed in several other sites in the Witterings & along the South Coast & this is one of our favourites. We stayed a week and during the week virtually had the site to ourselves with only 3-4 other tents during mid week although with the recent hot weather the weekend was a lot busier but so were all the other sites in the area. 
 
 I think Northmonkeyboy must have got his sites mixed up or had too much monkey juice, there are miles of sandy beaches nearby, the Witterings are some of the most popular beaches on the South Coast! Indeed at West Wittering there are 50 acres of sand dunes which are National Trust. Bracklesham Bay stretches for 4-5 miles from Witterings to Selsey & is sandy all the way, the only time there is no sand is if the tide is right in but you only have to wait an hour or so for it to go out. East Wittering is a super village with a good selection of local shops & a Co-op and in our experience a good selection of pubs, chippies & cafes.
 
The site has some new showers & whilst there is some queueing a weekend peak time, in our experience this is the same on any site & most of the time you just walked right in. The site does use waterless ecoloos which we found ok, but if you are very fastidious it may not be your cup of tea! There are two conventional flush loos available though if you have kids. We liked it & will be back.

An easy going site, pleasant owner and a nice touch is to be provided with rough map when you arrive. Facilities basic but OK, compost loos fine to use. You can walk 2 ways to the beach, to Bracklesham or East Wittering. Both take about 20 mins. Brackleham is very run down and not much there, East wittering is more happening with a few pubs and restaurants. Beaches are stony with breakwaters, but quite wide when tide goes out. However we took a spin up to West Wittering afterwards and its another story there. The beach is a private estate and you have to pay £5 to park, which sounds steep, but is really worth it. The beach is lovely and big and sandy with great views. A complete and welcome improvement from the other areas.

Just come back after staying two nights here. We loved this campsite and will definitely return! It is probably more for families - although there were a few couples who seemed to be enjoying themselves.
 
The ecoloos could be off putting to some - but we all coped fine with them - my 3yr old and 5yr old were happy to use them.
 
There is a lack of shower facilities, but we decided to go back to basics and didn't use them - I can imagine that there would be big queues at peak times.
 
We walked to the beach at Bracklesham - which took about 25mins (at a 3yr old pace!) It was a lovely walk and yes the beach is stony - as are all the beaches along this area, but the sea was lovely and warm and it is not as busy as the Witterings. A sign to point you in the right direction may be a good idea - we guessed the correct way! At the end of the lane go left past Stubcroft Place - follow the track all the way, cross over the  main road and go down past the legion club, keep going straight - down an alley and you will hit the beach!
 
We found everyone was very considerate and it was very safe to let the kids roam freely. Great campsite.

This campsite is fine but differs from the description on the pages here in our experience. We were expecting a rural environment with limited facilites and whilst the facilities are adequate the site is large and full of families with lots of children making it more like a holiday park environment than rural camping. Having said that if this is what you are looking for and have kids then its great. However, the local pub is expensive (£15 per main course) and the beach was horrible. Not a grain of sand in sight and the whole area is very run down and dilapidated. The area is reminiscent of a north east seaside town although that is perhaps an insult to some lovely north eastern areas! If you are looking for a nice weekend by the coast as a couple or adults only maybe give it a miss, if you want a site for kids with plenty of space it the place for you.

Came down from London for the weekend of 15/16 July. To put my review into context, my girlfriend and I have camped around Scotland / Ireland / England / Australia with a 3-man 10 year old Euro-hike dome tent. I would describe the camping style as basic but not self-sufficient.

The approach of bio-loos and recyling is good to see. To those a bit put off by the idea of the toilets, can I say give it a go. Its OK, honestly, and they are well looked after. The pitch is level and It is also nice not to have a bar/restaurant/play area/mega-shop i.e. Its a campsite, not a holiday park.

However I think there is some work to be done.
Mid-week this site may be fine, however during a summer weekend, to be honest I think it is a little bit stretched.

They could do with more shower facilities, and if you are in the far field, its a bit of a trek. I also think that there is a need for an increase in the number of toilets and taps/sinks in the field, again for the weekend crowd.

Also, while I am in favour of being able to pitch anywhere, perhaps an idea would be to mark out pitches, and let people choice from those. It was difficult manoeuvring the car between other tents when they can be pitched higgedly-piggedly.

I am most definitely in favour of this campsite and would love them to continue their approach.

This is one of our favourite sites in Sussex. It is very relaxed & how camping should be, three big fields with plenty of space & about 15 mins walk down a lane (or 2-3mins drive) to some of the best beaches on the South Coast at Bracklesham & the Witterings. The new facilities have helped cope with the recent busy hot weekend rush well but it still retains the rustic charm of an old fashioned site & hopefully the owners will not develop too much as that is part of its charm. It is also one of the very few eco friendly sites we have found. It is also very family friendly with plenty of space in the middle of the field for the children (and adults!) to play.
 
The other bonus is that most of the people on the site are pretty chilled out and friendly & most of the rowdier set tend to go to the bigger Scotts Holiday village the other side of East wittering leaving this site fairly peaceful thankfully!
 
Its a bit of a "Marmite" site, you will either love it or if you are an urbanite & want bars, clubhouses & loads of facilities, you will hate it!
