A bit sceptical as you can't book a pitch and we wanted to camp on a bank holiday weekend. We called ahead on the day and were told to come on down. On arrival, we were welcomed by the owner, booked and helped to find a pitch. Very friendly and helpful, with all facilities and rules well explained.
The site is a good size and very well kept (the grass puts my lawn to shame!). Hooks ups are limited, but not an issue for us. Toilets, showers, washup and other facilities are well laid out, maintained and cleaned.
We chose the site to be close to Arundel to visit the castle and also have some Brighton friends join us on the second night. The local area is packed with things to see and do.
We will be heading back later in the year and probably next summer to.
Used this site as a base to explore Worthing, Arundel etc so didn't spend a lot of time on site but facilities were clean and tidy. Had fire pits at one end of camp field so made a nice gathering point of an evening, not a great deal for the kids but they made their own fun on some trees overhanging a stream at the back of park.
No shop in the village, just a pub, but large londis about 5mins up the A22. Some good walking close by with great views of the south downs.
I stayed here for 5 nights (Sunday to Friday) in August, with 2 children. The site wasn't too busy, was very clean and well maintained.
I had phoned 3 weeks in advance to book and asked for an electric hook up for the tent, which they were able to provide. The pitch was good and flat, and in a good location on the site.
The toilets and showers were lovely, they were kept very clean, and there was always plenty of hot water. We didn't have to wait or queue once for the loo or a shower.
The grounds were really smart, with well kept grass. Camp fires aren't allowed, but there is a bonfire area at the bottom of the field, with benches were everyone congregates in the evening to sit and have a chat.
It was good site for the kids as they were able to go off and explore, independently, down by the stream at the bottom of the field, and I could always see where they were.
The owners were really lovely and very helpful. They had a really nice habit of being around the field every morning so you could have a chat with them if you needed to. There was lots of information on local attractions, and they had plenty of recommendations.
We did a day at Parham House and a day at Amberley Chalk Pits, which are both near by, but we also had a day at Butlins in Bognor and a couple of days on the beach in Worthing. All in all, it's a really good base as there is so much to do in the area.
I would definitely recommend this site to others and will be returning in the not too distant future for another visit.
Have just arrived home after a 5 day break here. We only intended to stay 3 nights but booked an extra night because we were so relaxed and the weather was fantastic.
Positive points about our stay: The site is incredibly quiet, has beautifully kept grass and has a very relaxed feel about it. There is nothing to do for the children so they were forced to hook up with other children and therefore played cricket/volleyball and football most of the day. At night, there is an area for an open fire which is a nice touch. Picnic benches are also available for all to use which is great.
The toilet/shower facilities are clean and we never had to queue. There is an area to wash up and a freezer for ice blocks. We had a great day at Goodwood Races and went to Brighton for the children but other than that we were happy to just relax at the site. There was no noise after 11pm and although the site is off a busy road - you could not hear any traffic. The view from the site of the South Downs is spectacular. Reception staff were friendly (pre and during visit).
(slight) Negatives about our stay.
THE COST! We paid approx £30 per night for a family of 4. Considering there is no entertainment/bar/lounge/rest area/park for children etc, we felt this was a bit excessive in terms of cost.
20p is required for the shower (5 mins), which were always warm but the biggest annoyance was that the lights were determined by that 20p as well. Therefore, once the shower had finished you were getting dried/ready in the dark. Not easy with young children.
Another recommendation would be to install some form of lighting to guide you to the toilets at night. The site is a little too dark at night.
Would we recommend this site? Yes. If cost does not matter to you, this is a beautiful, quiet site where we, as a family, had lots of fun with good friends.
