 Exactly our kind of site. Good to see kids running around and having a good laugh without 'electronics'.

Mr. Griffiths couldn't have been more helpful.

Lovely and quiet, like a large cl.

Definitely would recommend if you don't want swimming pool, bar and all the rest of the noise of a major site.

17 per night in August 2020 with water, waste and chemical waste.

Covid 19 restrictions still in force.

Entertainment provided by four geese, one goat and numerous chickens.

Reviewer: Markmi 1 review from this member

 The EHU seemed to work very well but the remaining facilities were awful, filthy toilets and miserable showers (for which there was a 50p charge) and washing facilities.

The actual site itself wasn't too bad though there were various animals on the site which left unpleasant deposits that had to be sidestepped.

Also on the first night there was a racket from the large field from selfish campers who seemed intent on an all night rave.

The general area is pleasant but Small Dole itself is lifeless. Best to drive the short distance to Henfield for something more inspiring.

 On arriving at this site at 5 in the morning we weren't initially impressed. However first impressions don't always count.

Housed in an outhouse building thought showers and cleanliness was going to be poor. How wrong. Showers at 50p were efficient sufficient, very hot and clean.

Other caravanners and owners of the site were very friendly approachable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners from information regarding local events to staying a little longer on our pitch.

The nearby town less than five minutes away by car had a convenience store stocking small toys for children to frozen meals.

Views from the site were wonderful and as we had brilliant weather we visited nearby Brighton (which hubby found a little too busy and hectic traffic)Expensive for parking so shop around. However if you like a traditional seaside town Brighton is for you. Worthing Eastbourne and Shoreham on sea are all lovely seaside towns.

The site was very peaceful and relaxing and there was no noise from nearby road.

There is a cockerel on the farm and you may have visits from hens which added to the quaintness of this site.

We would defo visit again and at 15 a night I have found a little gem.

One suggestion, a family shower room would be handy for families and disabled. This would complete this wonderful site.

 Lovely location, once you manage to find it and manoeuvre round the country lanes. Greeted on arrival and given pro & cons of each area, then a choice of sites. So far so good.

There were Chickens, geese and even a goat wandering around, have to say the goat was tied up. Set up, sat down had a cuppa and looked out at fields and woodland. Fantastic.

Completely out of their control but then the heavens opened. The short trek to the amenities seemed miles in torrential rain. The showers were basic to say the least. They were right by the door and the room was cold. That and the fact there were maggots all over the floor and I decided a shower was definitely NOT going to happen during our stay.

The washing up facilities had no cover so if you use them in the bad weather be prepared to get wet. There is no internet access and no leaflets of the local area.

Nice place but wont be going back.

 We are regular visitors to the farm camp site. Its fantastic. Nice and quiet. We live local, 15mins away. The loos and showers are basic but fine. Plenty of things to do in the local area.

The pub in the village is great and there is a park for the children close to the camp site.

So if you are thinking of a weekend away you will not do better.

 What a little gem this site is, tucked away within sight of the South Downs the views are wonderful. Sunny or Shade in the same field depending on which side you choose.

The facilities are basic, but more than adequate. The walks are never ending and for us with our dogs it was wonderful to be able to walk away from the site and disappear on to the downs.

The beach is about 20 minutes away. The local pub is very welcoming and the food fantastic, the village shop provides all you need in the way of provisions.

We will definitely visit again. Thank you for making us so welcome.

Reviewer: Gingerninj 2 reviews from this member

 Have just spent a relaxing weekend here are Farm House Camping and it is a lovely gem of a site. As motorhome owners we have our own facilities, but we did have a quick check to see what they were like. The toilets and showers are basic and the washing up area isn't covered, but there are recycling bins, which you don't see on all camp sites.

The main attraction of this site is the views and the price. Once you are parked up and set up you can sit back and relax and just listen to the sound of silence. No road noise, just the local geese and chickens ( there is duck poo near the top of the site as they run free)

The magnificent view of the South Downs is well worth the 14 a night including electric.

The local pub is just 400 yards away, with the shop a few yards away from that. We didn't eat here so can't give an opinion, as we cycled along the old railway to Henfield and ate at the white Hart, which was great.

Luckily the weekend we were here there was also a cider festival at the Shepard and Dog at Falking, a nice 2 1/2 mile ride with a great pub at the end.

We'll definitely be returning here, great value and location

Reviewer: Lozza-jozza 1 review from this member

 We camped here for the August bank holiday because literally everywhere else was fully booked.

The site is basically a field behind a farm house. The atmosphere is nice and there are farm animals including chickens and a goat, as well as some noisy geese. The surrounding area is good and there is an excellent pub in the village. The local shop only a five minute walk.

As mentioned in the previous reviews the main sticking point is the toilet facilities. Very run down and basic. There is one shower in each block which is powered by tokens (75p each from reception). I was worried that there would to be too few facilities for the number of people on the site, potentially over 100 if it was full. But no one seemed to use them, probably because they were so grim. A lot of campers seemed to be fairly local and made the trip home to take a shower.

It was a fairly wet weekend and there was a major problem with access to the site. Vehicles were restricted to one exit route which soon turned into a mire. Caravans had to be towed off by tractor. It would not take much to make a safe exit road and this is definitely necessary.

Overall this site represents good value, perhaps ok if you were in a caravan, but the poor facilities mean I would not visit again.
