Why stay here ...

Please note: Fishing on site - water is fenced off for safety.

Our CL is set on a small working farm with sheep and cattle and is surrounded by open fields and views of the beautiful South Downs. Adults, children and pets are all welcome. 

The site is set in 1 acre and we have 5 grass and 5 hard standings pitches enabling us to be open all year and all with 16 amp electric hook ups and space for an awning.

There is a shower (chargeable) and toilets on site, and fields accessible for dog walking. Fresh eggs from our free range chickens are also available.

2012 saw the opening of our Fishing Lake, set in a quiet, secluded corner of the farm and is filled with a variety of fish (some 20lb+). The nearest beach is just 3 miles away, and golf within 5 miles. Also within 5 miles od National Cycle Network. There are a variety of local shops and a train station within 1 mile and the nearby historic town of Arundel with its stunning castle and river walks. Chichester offers shopping, restaurants, bowling, cinema, cathedral and canal walks; where Bognor Regis and Littlehampton offer more traditional seaside attractions.

Nice stay

Nice place, plenty of room for caravan and awning, if on road side a bit noisy with traffic, but better on field side, the only down side was the electric meter, never been on site like this before and told when booked about £1a day so arrived on Saturday set up and by Monday had used nearly £5 so turned off all except fridge, used radio just for hour in morning and tried to not use phones to much so did not have to charge them every day, got that sorted, fishing was short walk through field lucky took trolly with me, but nice friendly people nice fresh eggs and a lovely pub in walking distance, so a lovely week stay,

My favourite CL

Tracey and Keith are lovely people and the sites facilities are always spotless. The site is huge far bigger than most CLs. The view from the pitches is lovely you really feel like you are away from it all even though I am only 45 minutes from home. The grandkids love spending time there as they can see the animals and last year Tracey took them to see the lambs and they loved it. My Husband likes to fish and the lake is so beautiful and tranquil and there are big fish too. See you in the spring.

Beggars Belief !

Booked four days at this site in January. The hard standing, toilet block, shower and fishing were the main reasons for choosing Choller. What a disappointment! Nobody there to greet me, apparently the owners work during the day so a fellow tourer told me where to pitch and explained how the electric meter system worked. Due to the bad weather 5 vans were crammed onto a very small hardstanding area leaving only 2 or 3 metres between vans. Both toilet and shower blocks were nothing more than garden sheds with no heating or hot water in the loos. Whilst the loo pan was clean the rest of the room was covered with many cobwebs in every corner and on the inside of the doors. The electric is a meter system which runs faster than a London Cabbies. If I choose to use the shower room I would also have to pay extra. So more like £15 a day with the extras. Not such a good deal in winter considering the poor quality of the facilities. I currently pay £12 for a club site with spotlessly clean heated loos and hot water, but hey ho, I still had the fishing to look forward to, (£8 extra for two rods). However the day I arrived my 85 year old mother was unexpectedly admitted to hospital. I advised Tracey I may need to leave early subject to her condition. To my astonishment all she cared about was making sure I payed in full for the 4 days booked whether I stayed or not. How heartless! Unfortunately my mothers condition deteriorated the next day so I decided to leave immediately. A little tip for you Tracey, I know you are running a business, as you delighted in telling me, but a little more pragmatism and understanding would have resulted in future bookings from me as I am a keen fisherman, however, Your intransigence and couldn’t care less attitude to my unfortunate circumstances 'beggars belief' so I will not be returning.

Comment from the Club:

Many thanks for your review and we are really sorry to hear that your mother was admitted to hospital and hope that she has recovered well.

The CL owners have been in touch as they work hard to ensure everyone has the best possible time on their site and as such they would like to address your concerns to avoid any confusion and misunderstanding in the future.

The pitches are 10 metres from the next caravan so it should hopefully haven given you plenty of space on site. The site inspectors are happy with the spacing of pitches on the site.

The toilets are cleaned every day and although there is no hot water they do have running water, toilet paper, soap, hand dryer and air freshener. If you have any concerns about the cleanliness of the toilets please do speak to the CL owners about this as they will be happy to help. The shower has hot water as well as underfloor heating. This is charged at 20p per 2 minutes. Both buildings for the shower and toilet are insulated, painted and tiled inside.

All information regarding charging for electric and shower is communicated to guests before arrival and a confirmation email is sent out with information about the site and arrival, advising that if you have any queries you will usually find the owners after 4pm weekdays and all-day weekends on site but if you have any concerns on arrival and they are not home to please call the CL owner with the mobile number given. WiFi on the site is free for guests.

They do advise that all nights booked will be charged and this is in their booking T&Cs that are sent to all guests. On this occasion they were fully booked and had previously turned other potential guests away for the nights you had booked.

We hope this helps clear up any confusion and explains why they charge for all nights. It is not unusual for any site to do this as they need to be able to ensure they cover costs to make it a viable option to run the site. Thank you again for taking the time to leave a review.

Nice site, great fishing, friendly owners

Just spent a week here and found it to be a great site. Large level field with hard standing options. Grass well mown. Friendly helpful owners. Enjoyed fishing at the lake a short walk away. Good position for nipping to Arundel or Chichester. Useful to have a shower there. Thank you Tracy and Keith, sure we will be back.

Very Helpful Owners

Nice little site with good access to local attractions, although approach road is very narrow. Extremely helpful and friendly owners. One downside was the cleanliness of the toilets, which could have been better.
