 We went for a long weekend to buckle caravan park, this was a lovely break, staff in the office and the club house were friendly, and happy to help, there are two shower blocks, one more modern than the other, but both adequate, the club was quiet when we visited, but very friendly, it has bar, sky tv, etc, pleasant to sit and chat without blaring music, and easy access to pebble beach from site, will definitely be booking again, and would recommend to others.

Reviewer: Happycampers2014 1 review from this member

 Nice campsite in a fantastic location. There is no sea view as such but the beach is literally a few metres away on the other side of a bank. The main site is a little tired and would maybe benefit from some extra attention, especially the toilets and shower facilities. They are clean and have quirky little touches as part of the decor but the stalls are not very big which is a bit of a problem in the shower as there is one hook for clothing and towel which tend to get splashed from the shower. The showers are on a push button timer but not a issue. The staff are very friendly and there is a clubhouse on site which looks fairly new and is quite nice inside. At 20 per night in the main summer season the site is great value for money but if an injection of cash was put into improving facilities I wouldn't mind paying a bit extra. Seaford town is a short walk away, 15-20 minutes either via road or along the promenade. Nice little town, not a huge place though. Transport links to Brighton are fantastic. The station is a short walk from the site and cost us just under 10 return for 2 adults. Trains run every half an hour and generally on time - note when you board a train you must ask the conductor to buy a ticket, do not wait for him to come to you apparently!

 This is a great site and Seaford a backwater with superb beach. Sweet town with good shops and pubs and tea rooms.

The site is let down by poor shower blocks. They spent money on the clubhouse, they need to do the same with the showers.

Staff very friendly

Great connections to Brighton, Eastbourne and Lewes by train - rail station practically on doorstep

 Lovely site. Toilet and showers cleaned daily - showers free but would benefit from modernisation. Friendly and welcoming staff. 30 yards from beach with promenade and beautiful sunset. Set away from units is a large field dedicated for games. Site is less than 5 mins walk to train station & 5 mins walk to bus stop. Bar on site but only 15 min walk in to Seaford town for other pubs, plenty of eating places and Morrisons. Only occasional problem we encountered was getting back in to the site when in the car - barriers were down (good for security) but need to buzz in and a few times there was no one in the office and the steward was out on the site.

 Our first visit to Buckle - we stayed Fri - Sun as we were going to a 70s weekend at the Brighton Centre on the Sat night. Arriving on Fri afternoon, the guy on reception was very friendly and the site is very cheap ! The field ( B ) we were in is shielded from the strong costal winds and the plots are level and clean. The whole place is basic and adequate and a great location. Morrisons is half a mile away, its right on the sea and 300yrd from Bishopstone Railway Station. Toilet and shower blocks were basic and clean - Will definitely go back - Great little place.

 Pitch is flat with loads of room for kids to run around in and the clubhouse was fairly well maintained, but the rest of the site looks unloved and needs maintenance. The toilet/shower block near the camping field is pretty basic, the showers are the push button type, each push lasting about 20 seconds and the shower heads in need of a good descaling. The other block near the front entrance is better, but quite a walk if you are camping. The plus side is the location, 30 seconds to the beach, 3 minutes to the train station with trains every 30 minutes to Brighton. 15 minute stroll into seaford or a 5 minute car ride to newhaven. I wouldn't recommend a long stay, but it is cheap and has great location.

 Myself and 7 friends have just got home from a 3 nights stay over the Easter Bank Holiday in our VW campervans. It was our first time at The Buckle Holiday Park and if I'm honest, we didn't expect a lot due to the cheap price, but I've got to say we were very pleasantly surprised!

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The club house/bar was great and everyone in there very friendly too. There's a pool tablet, a flat screen for sports and also a couple of games machines. Oh and there is also a burger van on site that does some fantastic food!

Yes the site is a little basic but to be honest that's what's nice about it. It is what it is.

The toilets and showers are a little on the small side but its really wasn't an issue. We always found them to be clean and fresh and there was always hot water too.

The location is fantastic! The beach is literally just over the bank, Seaford town is only a 10 minute walk away. There are also some great attractions nearby too.

We will defo be booking in again this year and can't wait!

 Back from another pleasant stay at Buckle.

Yes, this place is basic, but that's part of the charm.

The previous review was a bit scathing and factually incorrect. There are two toilet blocks, plus a bar, so I've never had to queue in a dozen visits.

The staff are all lovely and do their utmost to help and have a great local knowledge.

I'll definitely be back throughout the summer. The location is perfect for the beach, Seaford, Newhaven and Brighton.

The only improvement I can think of is a small playground. There's already a small football pitch, but some slides and swings wouldn't go amiss!

Reviewer: Monty the bongo 49 reviews from this member

 First sunny weekend of the year so decided to have a night away somewhere local. The best thing about this site is the location, literally a stone throw from the beach, no sea views due to the high bank though. For me, that's the only good thing, the facilities are so old and dated and the website says they have 150 pitches but they only have 3 gents toilets and showers, the roads around the site pot holed, the lights around the site broken in places. Generally the site looks unloved which is a shame because it could be stunning if someone was bothered!

There is a nearby train line which didn't bother us noise wise nor did the noise from the nearby road.

 Location, location, location. We've been using this site for many years now, because of this. There isn't anything else in the area, is there ?

Agree with the previous reviews. The welcome and general helpfulness have improved a great deal from how they used to be, but the facilities have not. The electricity supply is apparently pretty low-amp, be careful. I see a previous review says there is no laundry: not true, there is a washing machine, get the key from reception.

The half-hourly 120 bus from Seaford (Morrisons) will drop you outside the site if you ask the driver nicely.
