The Barn Caravan Park at Lancing, West Sussex opened in 2003 and has been growing and welcoming campers ever since.
Fret not though if big campsites aren’t your thing: this is a peaceful medium-sized site and is carefully maintained by owner Joe to avoid overcrowding even in busy periods. Tent pitches are on grass and come with access to The Barn’s four toilets, showers with lashings of free hot water; for outdoor suds, there’s a cold water beach-type shower. There are brick barbecues and picnic tables for guests to use, and a good play....read more

Beaches, beaches, beaches… the nearest beach, South Lancing, is within a short walk, with the beaches of Worthing and Shoreham-by-Sea each two miles walk from here. Or head west along the coast to the flumes of Littlehampton’s Harbour Park or to the bountiful resort of Bognor Regis, officially declared Britain’s sunniest seaside resort in 2011.
Going east? Brighton probably doesn’t need an introduction, but if you’re looking for recommendations on what to do there, George IV’s Royal Pavilion, Sea Life Brighton or shopping/eating out around The Lanes are good places to start.
The town of Lancing is less than a mile away from The Barn with a nature reserve, Lancing Ring, to its north and restaurants and shops at which to fill your boots and empty your wallet. Worthing is also well worth a look as one of the biggest towns in the area – and the former home of Oscar Wilde and Harold Pinter for those who like their literature. There are a couple of hundred listed buildings in the town to make your way around as well as the biggest museum in West Sussex, an undercover shopping centre and, er, a haunted oak tree. Along the coast to the west there’s cracking Chichester with its Norman cathedral, festivals and shops; Fishbourne Roman Palace, the biggest Roman home in Britain, is just outside the city...

The site is well placed for walking into Lansing or worthing or you could cycle further if that is what you want to do. There is really nothing that can be said…Read more
We stayed here with electric hook up for 4 nights. Our two girls (11 and 9) loved it and made lots of friends, there were plenty of children of primary school age and a few older ones. The play equipment in the middle of the field is an ideal family layout, you can see them, but you…Read more
The site is ideally situated close to the beach near Shoreham and Lancing and is set in a quiet and peaceful bit of countryside adjacent to a quaint little equestrian centre. Local amenities are nearby and Lancing town centre is walking distance. The on site facilities are excellent with a well maintained toilets/shower block, a play area…Read more
We have been campers for many years but after too many wet and windy holidays we this year decided to try hiring a motorhome for a long weekend to see how we got on with it before possibly hiring one for a longer trip. We picked this campsite because it isn't too far from home and we…Read more
Just come back from a few days at The Barn. Very basic but clean and quiet camping - the toilet block was clean and adequate showers were good - our host Joe was very welcoming friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The site was a nice size, secure and flat for our tent. If you are…Read more
Another great visit to this gem of a site. Always well maintained, always a warm welcome and handy for Brighton to the East and Worthing to the West. This was our fourth or fifth visit and we will be back soon.Read more
