Per site, very informal & non-regimented which has become one of our favourite sites this year. It’s pretty & secluded, surrounded by hedges & trees, well away from main roads but close enough to the beaches & village to walk. We stayed a fortnight & had a wonderful time, there is lots of room on the fields (which was great for the children) & it was nice being able to relax & not worry about or hear any traffic. There are fields of sheep nearby & when we were there harvest was underway & the kids loved watching the combine harvester & tractors working. It’s a simple, un-commercialised, no frills site, its not luxurious but adequate and does have all the basics you need, showers (one free & two coin operated), loos, drinking water & washing up facilities which were well maintained. There are plenty of shops nearby for supplies & lots of good places to eat within 20 mins walk or a few minutes drive which is great if your lazy like us & don’t like cooking every night! There was a good mix of people on the site, mainly couples & families many of whom were regulars which I guess is a good recommendation in itself. If you are looking for a simple, informal site in a nice rural location then this site is for you, if you want lots of modern facilities, amusements & bars etc. Then look elsewhere. We highly recommend this site
At a lovely site & very different from most sites we are used to going to. Very secluded along lovely farm lanes, a bit difficult to find so do follow the directions but well worth it. It was like going back in time, no shops or amusements just a plain camping field with everything you need for basic camping, spacious & clean showers, plenty of toilets including the famous waterless “ecoloos” which are a brilliant idea especially with the current water shortages & pleasant enough to use. Lots to do locally with some good places to eat & shops nearby including a great surf shop in East Wittering village. The beaches are excellent, & good for windsurfing - miles of sand with a shingle bank & wooden groynes & some wonderful dunes at West Wittering (although we found it got very crowded there at weekends so it was better to go to Bracklesham beach where it was quieter). We liked the eco friendly approach to this site & will definitely go back soon to top up the suntan.
Unusual site, very different from most mainstream sites. Weekdays were very peaceful & although the weekends were busy due to the hot weather there was a nice atmosphere & “buzz” to the site & everyone seemed very friendly. Even when it was full at the weekend it was still surprisingly quiet at night, one or two groups chatting away but no music or rowdy drunks. It isn’t signposted (which I guess is why you don’t get the noisier passing trade) but its easy enough to find if you follow the directions. There was plenty of room between pitches even at the weekend & plenty of room for the children to play. The ecoloos are ok, better than most of the festival loos I’ve come across in the past & much better than the smelly portaloos found on some sites but if you are of a particularly fastidious nature & not into the eco-tourist stuff then maybe this isn’t the site for you. We liked the idea of this site, the facilities are basic but it had a lovely atmosphere & there are some good sandy beaches and attractions nearby. We particularly like the harbour water tour from Itchenor jetty and the Weald & Downland open air museum just north of Chichester is well worth a visit. Will definitely come back again
Just returned from 3 days at this site, had a great time. The owners are very helpful yet not in your face. If you want the pristeen shower block and flushing loo campsite, then this site is not for you. Every aspect is geared towards green eco camping which wears slightly thin after a day or two but we managed it and it has made us appreciate flushing toilets and hot running water.
Ol, very simple, old fashioned back to basics site. Nice & secluded but close enough to pubs, village shops & good sandy beaches that you can walk to so its not too isolated. Best beach is at West Wittering, loads of dunes which are ideal for sunbathing & sheltered from any wind. Spent the evenings watching shooting stars, sheep & hedgehogs, owners ok about having campfires as long as they are in containers off the ground & don’t scorch the grass so used our tripod barbie but you must bring your own firewood. Helpful guy running the site, jump started us after our battery went flat due to leaving minifridge plugged in all night in the hot weather! The other thing we liked about this site is there is plenty of room even on a busy weekend, there are no pre marked pitches just a simple big field with loos, showers etc. It’s a pretty chilled out site & most of the people on the site were friendly & even at the weekend it seemed very quiet compared to other sites we’ve stayed on. We liked the eco friendly approach, & the fact that it is a proper working farm, it seems to attract a good bunch of like minded campers. Might not be everyone’s bag but for us that’s part of the attraction. Tips – print off the written directions, there are no signs to this site. Don’t rely on satnav we did & it took us up the wrong farm lane! Also take your bikes, its quicker to the beaches & shops, pretty flat & there are lots of good rides round the harbour & pubs etc.
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.
