Reviewer: Murano 7 reviews from this member

 Just come back from a long weekend here, the site is very clean and presentable. It wasn't busy when we were there as its now slightly out of season, it does say on their leaflet it can be a lively site, probably due to the fact it's only a few miles into Brighton town, which is a big bonus.

I was pleased in general with the pitch sizes both hard and grass, the showers were clean and tidy if a little bit dated, and not always guaranteed hot, however we were told the site is having refurbishment over the winter, and these were going to be modernised.

The only downside is the entrance lane into the actual site, not only is it quite narrow, can be a bit of a squeeze when another van coming the other way, but also due to the amount of campers and caravaners parked on the road I think it's a popular spot for wild campers.

In all a really nice friendly site, close to Brighton, great views of the hills, local to a supermarket, great area for dog walking, will return next year for sure.

 The site is situated on the furthest Easterly edge of Brighton over two miles from the town, and ½ mile down a road reduced to one lane by semi-permanent ‘wild-campers’ mentioned in other reviews. This is not an entirely convenient location for Brighton, but it is a large site with spacious pitches.

The marina is about 1 mile away and has a large Asda supermarket, plus numerous ‘chain’ type restaurants. Going towards Brighton (also 1 mile away) local shops and an Aldi supermarket can be found.

Watch out for parking in Brighton if you visit by car, the central car parks are horrendously expensive at £ 18 for 3 hours and £ 25 for 4+ hours!

The Royal Pavilion in Brighton is an absolute delight, externally influenced by Indian Architecture and follies, Chinese’s décor and fittings internal. If you visit do try the first floor tea room/restaurant for afternoon teas or lunch. This was an unexpected treat.

Personally this site was slightly too remote from the attraction of Brighton and having none of the benefits of country side being located behind a school, and set between well used sports fields and training grounds. Neither a town nor a country location at this site.

 We stayed at the Caravan Club site August bank holiday week. The site was kept clean and tidy even though the site was full no wait for the showers and no problems with the hot water and during the week whilst we were there workmen repaired the boiler.

The wardens was very helpful and welcoming nothing was too much for them. We enjoyed the site that much we stayed a extra night. The shower blocks are a little dated but later this year they are going to be revamped ready for 2013.

The only down side is the access road to the site it's a nightmare with freeloading caravanners and motor-homes parked on side of the road and cars and vans parked on the other I had to get the wife to walk in front of me as my towing mirrors was nearly touching the parked cars.

 Stayed for 4 nights on our first visit to this particular site.

We received the sort of warm welcome we come to expect from CC, coupled with the invitation to 'find your own pitch' and a broad hint as to where the better vacant pitches were located.

This is a fairly large site that accepts tents in addition to 'vans. Pitches for vehicles were full for most of our stay and although there are 2 amenities blocks, there were occasional signs of strain. One block carried notices about boiler problems, warning of the possibility of cold showers. We were lucky enough not to experience that.

There is security on site in the form of codes for main entrance and the toilet blocks, which is understandable given the large numbers of 'wild' campers parked on the approach road, through a public park. These occasionally made access a 'challenge'.

The site is well positioned for access to local public transport and the Marina which has a good range of shops, restaurants and a large supermarket.

We will be going back.

 For a tent user this site is outstandingly bad and the worse I have stayed at. Upon arrival we were told that we would need to pitch on the top field as the site was very busy. Fine - except in order to get from the car park to where the pitches are on the top field you need to either hike your stuff across the bottom field and then up a slope at the end of the field or (the quicker way) get yourself and your kit over a fence and then across the top field. I failed to see the purpose of the fence except to keep campers out of the field. This did not make me feel welcome at all. The shower was hot and cold intermittently and did not stay on very long. Considering the cost of staying at this site is three times the price of anywhere else I have stayed I expected better. So unless you want to hike your stuff around the camp site or over a fence don't bother to stay here. I won't be again.

 Having just left Sheepcote Valley after staying five nights on one of the serviced pitches with our motorhome we can honestly say we'd come back no problem. Even though the site was pretty well full it really didn't seem that way, in fact it was very quiet! perhaps it was the fantastic weather and everyone was out enjoying the glorious sunshine in Brighton.

We'd booked our pitch way back in January so we were a bit concerned after reading the reviews as some of them seemed very negative, but after a great welcome from the wardens when we booked in and no problem finding our pitch our concerns started fading. Yes there are issues with the sight but we think they are vastly outweighed by the good things!

Even though the site was full there were hardly any queues for the showers and toilets but the water temperature was 'hit or miss' in the closest toilet block to our pitch, but the facilities were clean as you would expect.

The biggest problem by far was access to the site, even though this is technically not a club problem it does drag down the image of the site! due to the amount of people 'wild camping' along the access road it makes passing nigh on impossible if you encounter another vehicle on the road to the site! The club should approach the issue with the local authority to resolve it asap.

Apart from that Sheepcote is a great site in a great location for Brighton Marina & Brighton itself (use the Volks Railway) to save the walk into town, we walked into Brighton nearly every day and didn't feel threatened by the area as people have mentioned in other reviews - so make your own mind up and give this gem of a site a try, you'll probably be surprised we were!

 This is our third stay here and I have to say that it has been disappointing. Our last stay in 2010 we encountered a coach party of 50 school children and thought that this was an isolated incident as the facilities were completely taken over by this group for hours.

Now 2012 4night stay and here we go again except this time a group of Scandinavian lads approximately 30 who took over the facilities and left them in a complete mess and even decided to use the ladies facilities to my moms horror when she went to use the toilet.

The best came at midnight when they began singing altogether which sounded like football fans until 0300 in the morning! ! I think this was appalling and we reported this to the warden the next day.

£114 for 4 nights 2 of which were ruined. I will not be using this site again.

My advice is: the site is clean but facilities are stretched for campers and especially taking large groups (only 4 showers and toilets) and quite expensive.

 This was our second visit to this site having been impressed initially. Although it rained almost every day we were there the grass pitch did not flood.

It is a large site but convenient for Brighton and many other parts on the south coast, Hove, Worthing etc. Good dog walks in the vicinity of the site.

TV/mobile reception good aided by TV plug into site ariel system.

Toilets starting to look a bit tired but they were always clean & tidy.

Only downside is that the road giving access to the campsite is always full of cars, motor homes & even caravans which can make entry/egress difficult.

Reviewer: Beccyandsteve 26 reviews from this member

 Arrived on a Friday to stay for the weekend. I had been slightly put off by a previous visitor about the route up being full of 'new age travellers'. There were some caravans and motorhomes parked on the approach but they appeared cared for and did not cause me concern. They appeared more like overnight visitors.

It's a big site and was full, but having arrived at 1pm I had plenty of choice. Various types of pitches, some elevated, some with hard standings and some serviced. Some of the vans looked quite snugly packed together, but I chose a hard standing and felt like I had plenty of room.

Shower blocks usual high standard.

Good directions from the reception on buses and route to the Marina.

An easy walk to the marina (about 20 mins). Slightly uphill on the way back. Suitable for motorised wheelchairs and buggies. Loads of restaurants and a weather spoons pub. Memories of India highly recommended.

From the marina to the pier it takes around half an hour.

It's about a 10 minute walk to the bus stops and then £2 for a single ticket. Buses came every 6 to 7 minutes with a notice board giving eta of buses which made them very easy to use.

Very quiet at night no road noise at all.

I would be happy to return to this site.

 We spent 4 nights here before do the London to Brighton cycle ride as we have done for the last 2 years. All of our guests who stayed with us thought the site was excellent, There were lots of cyclists on the site doing the ride so quite busy early on Sunday morning.

We stayed on a fully serviced pitch which was a very good location on the site not far from the toilet block or the site entrance.

The site it self is very clean and tidy and the shower/ toilet block were very clean, I never had to wait for a shower even with the site being full for the weekend and the water was always hot when showering.

The Brighton Marina is only a short walk away with some good pubs and restaurants, there is an Asda as well. Brighton centre is a 40 minute walk away along the beach front, there is a small railway which runs to the pier if you don't fancy the walk.

I would definitely recommend this site have been there for the last two years and will definitely be going back.
