Date of Visit: August 2007 Unit:  Tent
Reviewer: Camping4kids 2 reviews from this member

 Visited with 4 families with toddlers in Aug. It's more of a carpark than a campsite really, but one of the few sites on the beach in the area.

As a base for visiting the south coast it's probably fine, but as a destination in itself there's nothing 'pituresque' to say about it.

That said, the toilets etc. Were fine and the staff lovely. We live very close, so it's not really what we were looking for in a campsite - we like woods and 'the great outdoors' stuff.

 We visited this camp site for the August bank holiday weekend and thought that it was quite expensive for what it was at £15pn as you are really just paying for the beach side location.

Access to the site is through a barrier so if you want to come and go as you please it you need to leave a £20 deposit for a key fob.

A strict 5mph limit and 11pm quiet time is enforced on the site which means you will get a good nights rest.

The site is mainly used by caravanners but there are 20 or so tent pitches at one end. The ground was level and fairly soft. No open fires or ground resting disposable BBQ's are allowed.

The facilities are basic, situated in a wooden hut you have 3 showers and 3 toilets which are not very clean at all.

The town centre and a morrisons supermarket are about 1 mile away, the beach is parallel to the site and there is a bar on site which we didn't visit.

Would we go again? probably not.

 Our second weekend here this year. Very simple site, also very peaceful. Showers not perfect but hot and clean. Ongoing improvements can make it look a bit messy, but such is life.
Proximity to the beach is practically unique in my experience. Good stop off if ferrying to France. Lovely walk along the seafront to Seaford which, though not fudge box pretty has a friendly happy feel to it. Good hunting in the charity shops.
The V bar on Pelham Yard does good coffees / teas / food as well as alcoholic drinks. It's friendly and has a nice patio area. Buckle will definitely be a regular camp for us. By the way, look out for the panther at dusk in the distance of the adjacent field and listen for other worldly subterranean bubbling noises at high tide. 

Date of Visit: July 2007 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: ShaznCol 15 reviews from this member

 Our first time in this area, found the site to be well situated and Seaford to be a delightful town, with everything you needed.
(Recommend the Boot Inn, and the 'Lucky' Chinese takeaway!)
Was a great place to come back to in the evenings, as we found some of the major South Coast Towns a bit disappointing. (Weather was terrible, so probably got the wrong impression.)
We were just below the sea wall, yes, a little untidy as already reviewed, but understand the new owner is putting a road from the site over the sea wall, for boat / jetski launching and at the moment hardcore and general building rubbish had been left there.
Toilets in need of refurbishment.
The owner has just opened a very plush bar / clubroom on the site, very shiny and new, but again as weather was so poor, not much activity.
Two thirds of the site was Statics, and several 'vans on the touring section had taken route - Hoping that the 'Residents' don't take over the site as sometime happens - making the 'Tourers' feel like interlopers!
Hope the site develops under the new owners, Rome wasn't built in a day!

Reviewer: Lemontwister 1 review from this member

 We have just returned from a great weekend at this site, largely helped by the best weather we've had all summer. The site was level and grassy and just yards from the beach. The only downside was the showers which were slightly more than a dribble however the water was always hot and the shower block clean although a little dated.
Great for kids who could explore the area freely and play footy on the large field right opposite our pitch.
Would definitely return for a long weekend.

Reviewer: Romaway 20 reviews from this member

 We only stayed one night as we found this site very expensive at £17.50pn for a tiny motorhome and two adults for just very basic facilities. We were pitched in front of the high sea wall and the view behind us was piles of concrete rubble and several stored caravans placed in a haphazard fashion. In fact the view was so horrible we asked to move and we went a few pitches further along but we may as well not have bothered as the view was just as bad.

I think someone must be using the field behind the vans as a dump and maybe this is a new thing.

The grass was overgrown and the touring area seemed uncared for with loads of nettles all around. There is huge potential to make this into a beautiful site.

The toilets and showers were very basic and clean. The location right in the heart of the town was good.

The reviews on this site are indeed very varied and it just goes to show that people have entirely different ideas about what they want from a site. Just as well or we would all be in the same place.! This one was not for us.

 Got back from Buckle campsite yesterday evening. Spent the night there to celebrate my birthday, about 11 of us went and I thought the campsite was just fine. The facilities weren't fabulous, but I think that that is part of the camping experience. Everyone was really friendly. The beach was gorgeous and we experienced an amazing site - we sat on the top of the beach and watched lightening over the sea. It was amazing.
I recommend it!

 Just back from this site. Would not go there again. Site very untidy looking full of weeds, long grass needs a complete makeover.  The toilets and showers are in a  wooden block, on leaving the site today at 12 noon they needed a good clean, the rubbish bag was overflowing from the day before. The showers were luke warm/cold. There is a shop on the railway station, but limited for grocery's, do  not sell cigarettes. Nothing for children no play area, no laundry facilities, no hair dryer or such like. Overall, expensive compared to other sites with more facilities.

We've just got back from Seaford, and i must say that Buckle campsite is really nice. It's under new management and they are doing a fab job. Ignore all reviews previous to April 2005. The owners are relaxed and go out of their way to make your camping holiday a good experience. Facilities are cleaned 3 times a day, and even on whitsun Bank Holiday, all facilities were really clean,even though they are just basic and the site was packed. Situated right next to sea makes it even more enjoyable. Can't wait to go back!!!!!

I have just been to this campsite for the early May Bank holiday weekend and it was fab! Location is ideal - right next to a train station that goes direct to Brighton, and right on the sea front.

The field has plenty of room so you are not on top of your neighbours. There were quite a few of us and so we inevitably created a bit of noise, but the sound just seem to get absorbed by the sea air and so (hopefully) we didn't disturb anyone.

The shower blocks were very clean, the only downside is that there are no power points / hairdryers which made our Saturday night hair styles quite interesting.

The owner was very relaxed and friendly and helped make our trip to Brighton a really enjoyable one. I will definitely be returning to this campsite!
