 A great location for a few days of winter touring. We didn't use most of the site facilities but they looked as though they'd be useful during the summer months.

As others have noted, the ground can be damp and muddy, but this should be expected when there are four lakes for fishing within the site and especially in a wet winter.

The hardstanding was rather small even for a 2 berth single axle and it wasn't really practical to park a car next to the van without encroaching on the grass, which would have generated further mud.

We've rated 'child friendliness' as a 5 purely on the basis of the danger of open / unfenced water, but, as a fishing location this is to be expected.

 Sumner Pond is totally lovely. Nothing is to much trouble for the staff. Very helpful.

Would come back again for sure. The cafe is lovely food and drink. Lovely walks with the dog. And a dog meadow all secure as well.

2 minute walk outside the campsite is a lovely local shop and a pub next to it.

Reviewer: AllanGriffiths 1 review from this member

 We didn't need a power hook up because we have solar panels and batteries, so were assigned a pitch in the Rally Field which we had pretty much to ourselves except over the weekend.

The pitches with power hook-ups were very busy, even though it was late in the season.

The Cafe by the Lake currently has a limited menu because of Covid restrictions. Even so, we used it a lot, not least because it's the only part of the site (apart from the Reception Office) that has WiFi.

It's a very tranquil site - apart from the noisy geese and ducks, and there's no traffic noise.

Just a few minutes walk down the road is a well-stocked village shop and Post Office, which is next door to an excellent pub.

Reviewer: Cathoo 1 review from this member

 A well run site without draconian measures. Spotlessly clean toilet and shower block. Plenty of trees and greenery, nice to hear birdsong when you're washing up. Canada geese also making themselves at home, watch out for their poo when pitching tent!

Several fishing lakes and ponds to stroll round and safe paths for young children to ride their bikes.

Plenty of room in the camping field although electric hook up area looked busy with caravans and campervans.

We enjoyed our getaway from the digital world.

 We were a bit disappointed at first glance. Site looked a bit scruffy and worn. We are not fisher folk! However, we warmed to it over time and had a good stay.

The pitches are a bit higgledy-piggledy, a bit close together, and, without any screening, there is little privacy.

The cafe was excellent.

Pity that the wifi is only available there. We would have thought that, at £33 pn the owners could make it site-wide.

 Quiet site with Horsham, Worthing easily accessible.

Thoroughly enjoyed a meal at the cafe one evening - cosy and welcoming.

Wonderfully warm shower/toilet block.

 Nothing to fault

Would be good if they had full service pitches.

Great location, excellent restaurant and some of the best bathroom facilities ever visited.

100 % recommended.

 Great site, friendly, pitches good size lots of areas to camp in depending on preference, 1 new toilet and shower block which was very impressive, modern and warm. Older family block clean but dated and showers not that powerful (but just walked to other one!).

Fantastic walks around the woods and lakes, bike trails off the site and a great cafe with wide range of quality food and drinks.

There has never been any trouble as far as Iím aware but would prefer a barrier to camping areas versus open access as the site has multiple purposes.

 We can only confirm the previous reviewers comments, all good.

Easy to find, easy access, nice welcome. We had pitch 71 which had its own family of bluetits banging on the rear window during the hours of daylight and a toad landed on the groundsheet when we were packing up so with that and the ducks and Canadian Geese there is wildlife galore to enjoy. We're not into fishing but with five lakes to choose from and pictures of huge carp being displayed we can only assume that it is a fishing paradise.

The toilet/shower block in the "Sumners Park" section appears very new and always clean. We use the shower in our van but these looked large, well separated between wet and drying areas, and the showers appear to be switched on by a sensor so no need to keep pressing a button. Plenty of them for size of the park too.

The on site cafe is better than good in terms of friendly service and quality. I suppose you could say it's a little on the expensive side but then you don't have to drive anywhere and, as stated, the service is very good.

As a caravan site it is excellent and we have vowed to visit again however one thing we did notice from the off was the noise from the nearby railway line. It's not often we are disturbed by such noises but we did find it a little intrusive initially but after a couple of days we found we had grown accustomed to it (or gone deaf!)

One of the best sites we've ever been to.
