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 can't hear them, so they don't feel too watched. It was a really friendly site, with mostly repeat visitors. It's good play equipment, has a tower with climbing wall up (simple one, littlies could manage), slide down, roofed den above and roofed den below with seating, then off to the side is a climbing ladder and hanging down from that a swing and a trapeze. So it works well for all ages, and the shelter means they have cover if there's a bit of rain. Also there's a bench at the front of the building which houses the bathrooms and the manager's office, by the drinks machine and washing up, that area is covered so the kids can sit there too.
Happy kids = happy parents!
It was a level site, with good drainage, hook up worked well except for a trip after a heavy night's rain. The manager Joe was on site most of the time, helpful and friendly. The toilets were clean, never had to queue.
It was 10 min walk to the beach, you access at the sailing club, and then there's a walkway mainly along the beach that runs to Worthing and the other way too (I didn't walk that way). I went for run to Worthing, the route is flat, fine for buggies or wheelchairs, just the odd bumpy bit (approach road to beach and sailing club). The beach is mainly pebbles, with sand at low tide.
Other way to Worthing walking up the beach path, a new beach cafe bar had just opened called Perch, we went there for lunch, it was a lovely place, very stylish and gorgeous beach views, with a simple menu, good kids choices. The breakfasts looked fab but we didn't have time to return. Just outside Perch there is a nice big play park, with outdoor gym equipment area adjacent, and a big grass area. There's a beach hut selling burgers, coffees etc. Nice picnic place.
10 mins walk the other way takes you to Lancing station, train to Brighton return off peak for the 4 of us was £13. 80. Brighton is well worth the trip, great fun. Don't miss Choccywoccydoodah in the Lanes! Also next to Lancing station is a small Asda, two pubs (I think one's a Harvester), a couple of cafes, a shop called Mulberries which sells cold beer (unlike Asda)! And a pizza takeaway place, which delivers to the campside! Nice pizzas we had from there delivered on the first night. The level crossing is just by there too which is always fun for kids to see the trains going past.
There's a pool 2 miles away in Worthing called Splashpoint, it has play equipment for littlies, a flume, and 2 diving boards with their own pool. Our girls absolutely loved the diving boards, you don't see them so much any more. It's a nice modern leisure centre which looks straight out onto the sea, you feel like you are on the beach, and it has a small outdoor pool with sunbeds round.
Had lovely neighbours from Yorkshire, thank you to them for lending us all the things we forgot! A tin opener has been added to my camping list.
We would definitely return to this site.Tent, August 2015
