Not a huge fan of large UK sites, but this is very well equipped and run with very friendly staff. We just had a one-night stopover prior to a ferry crossing and they put us on a large, hardstanding serviced pitch with very good access. Showers and toilets very clean and plentiful with piped Smooth FM! Quite busy and rather noisy at night. Set in a nice park with places to walk or exercise a dog. Fair walk into Brighton itself, the Marina is closest which has a cinema, ASDA and all the usual chain restaurants but not much character. Very expensive to park on the promenade but plenty to see and do in Brighton plus lots of attractions in the area. Not my cup of tea but very good at what they do.

I love this site it is the gateway to Brighton and is within walking distance of everything! The pitches are a goid size so you don't feel looked over or packed like sardines, facilities are excellent always spotlessly clean, the staff are always friendly and willing to offer advice on places to visit. Brilliant site highly recommend!

Following mechanical problems as we were about to board the ferry at Newhaven we called this site to see if any available pitches. They told us to come straight up and we were pitched within 10 minutes.

The pitches are good sized and well placed around the site in small enclaves. As always every pitch has ehu and the ones we saw were very level. There were two facilities blocks - both immaculate, heated and never overly busy despite the site being near to full. The block near us was closed for cleaning 3pm-4pm - which we thought a much more sensible time than in the mornings.

We didn't see too much in the area as we were only there a couple of days pending work being completed on the van. From what we did see its a fantastic area and both Brighton and Eastbourne ave plenty to see and do. We also liked the smaller villages along the coast between the two.

Never sure when reviews mention friendliness of the site - people come and go daily so depends on who you park next too I guess. The wardens at this site were exceedingly helpful, cheerful and friendly - nothing was too much trouble for them.

We will go back again for a stay in Sussex and see the attractions and will definitely use this site.

Half term so time to keep the kids amused so we returned to this site again and had an excellent time at Brighton. Order your Brighton Pier Amusement Ride Wristbands the day before you need them and you save 25% (the wardens kindly printed out our email), plus the wardens told us about the Sealife 50% off Vouchers. The world's oldest Electric railway, the Volks Railway was open at half term this year - a lovely surprise. Hove Museum was a good little museum to spend an hour at. Cycling along the front is nice and easy with its dedicated cycle lane but remember it's a hill on the way back. Aldi and Asda supermarkets close to the site. 4 hours free car parking at the Marina and walk along next to the beach to the Pier. Toilets lovely and clean, and the washing up area was excellent with Radio 2 playing. You can hear the Whitehawk FC fans when they are at home but it was not for long. Quite expensive nights' cost but it was half term so presumably price is more then, but it was still a great holiday and we will return.

The site is situated a couple of miles East of Brighton City Centre, just North of Brighton Marina. It is easy to get to, but I would recommend following the site direction instructions, as taking a caravan through central Brighton is not recommended.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and got caught in a fair bit of traffic, which isnít at all unusual for the area. The site itself was very busy and after queuing to book in, we had to drive around the fairly large site twice to find an available pitch. We were rather hoping for a grass pitch, but none were available.

As with our club sites that we have visited so far, the pitches are pretty much level and the facilities very good. There were various services points around the site, which included drinking water, grey water disposal and chemical toilet points, plus bins and recycling facilities. One odd thing to note is that you are advised that glass MUST be put in with general waste and not in the mixed recycling bins. I assume that this is something to do with the local authority and hopefully it is sorted out at the collection depot.

There are two toilet blocks with free showers, hair dryer, shaving points, etc. There is also a laundry and washing up facilities. The washing up area we used only had three sinks, which made for a small amount of queuing, but nothing excessive. There was also a playground and Dog walk, but many dog owners chose not to use this favouring walking their dogs round the site instead.

Overall the site was up to the clubs usual high standards, although it didnít feel quite as friendly as others we have visited. A fellow caravanner we met while washing up, commented on the huge number of Motorhomes and massive RVís on the site. We were very much in the minority with our van.

One thing to bearing mind, which caught us out, is that the access road is perhaps Ĺ mile long without pavements and has no street lighting all. Finding our way back to the site after dark was ďInterestingĒ to say the least. If you intend to come in after dark either drive or get a taxi back.

Brighton is an amazing city to visit, but parking in the city centre is both difficult and (I feel) very expense. I would strongly recommend walking to the bus garage at Whitehawk or the Marina and getting an all-day bus ticket for £5 each.

Because of the feel of the place and the long dark access road, we would probably only visit again if we needed to stay over in Brighton for some event or other. There are better sites to just 'Chill Out' at.

Reviewer: Karlos65 3 reviews from this member

The camping is on 3 relatively small tiered fields to the right hand corner of the site. The tents opposite are fairly close. We pitched on the lower tier as this is where the electric hookups are. It would be an idea for those allocating pitches to make sure that smallish tents are pitched opposite the bigger tents using electric. The staff were helpful on arrival as we were early and were fairly friendly throughout the week.

You can choose where you want to pitch yourself but you cannot drive onto the camping area, you must cart all of your kit across from the carpark to the pitch. This didn't particularly bother us on arrival but it was a problem later.

We went the week before the bank holiday but what was surprising was the turnover, nobody at all stayed for the week, some pitched for up to 4 days but some were only a day. Under normal circumstances this wouldn't have been a problem but being as most people have a minimum of 5 or 6 trips to their car to setup and then the same again to pack-up it meant an almost constant stream of foot traffic in front of our tent at all times of the day and night as 4 tents opposite were allowed to pitch after 9pm at night. On another occasion in the week when it was actually quiet they decided to cut the grass.

The facilities are ok as are the staff and the location in a lovely park (avoid the cafe it is grim) only 10 mins on our bikes to the marina (great for bars and restaurants) and about another 10 mins to the pier which is pretty central for accessing most of what Brighton has to offer on foot. (If you are fairly healthy) Close to the racecourse too.

We were told that the top field next season will be used for Glamping units and the amount of units will reduce on the fields below so hopefully tent placement will be managed better then. Sadly though we wouldn't consider returning.
