Why stay here ...

Chalcroft Cottage CL is a quiet site set on approximately 1.5 acres of lawned grass on the edge of Bognor Regis with easy access to town, seaside and countryside. The Beach is about a mile away along flat quiet roads, perfect for walking or cycling, and from the footpath adjacent to the site there are wonderful views to the South Downs and Chichester Cathedral. Bognor Regis itself boasts a 2.5 mile promenade perfect for strolling along or for wheelchair users, crazy golf along the seafront, shops and cafes a recently restored Hotham Park with its miniature train and park cafe and a full events calendar in the summer with something for everyone! The beach regularly flies the European Blue Flag for being a clean and safe beach with good facilities. Bognor Regis is consistently in the top five of the sunniest places in Britain.

The site is well placed for exploring the beautiful county of West Sussex, with easy access by car, bus or train to Portsmouth and Southampton to the West and Worthing and Brighton to the East. The nearby City of Chichester and towns of Arundel and Littlehampton offer plenty of scope for days out for all tastes, from sightseeing and shopping to water sports, fishing and the theatre with Chichester Festival Theatre only 6 miles away. Bognor Regis itself has a fine independent cinema The Picturedrome which offers very good value for money on the latest film releases in a beautiful old listed building with a wonderful ambiance. Various activities held at Goodwood throughout the year including the Racing Calendar and Motor events are also within easy reach as Goodwood is approximately 8 miles from the site.

Great CL

We stayed here one Saturday in May to visit RSPB reserves and other local attractions. Although right on the edge of the town this feels very much a rural CL but is just a short bike ride to seafront (2.5. miles) through quite residential area. It is very spacious and also has plenty of showers and toilets for a CL. Super friendly and helpful welcome.

Just what a CL should be!

Can't add much to the previous good reviews! Found the entrance easily thanks to prior information. Friendly greeting and shown the facilities. Large level paddock with marked pitches and picnic tables. Flexible departure time was allowed because we had specific requirements to leave later than midday. Thanks for a nice stay.

Good location

Good location for exploring the area with easy acces to town by bus. We walked to the sea front in approximately 35mins and it is completely flat all the way. There are NO signs visible from the road for this site, so as you approach it following the directions you think you are turning into a "Public Foot Path". May we suggest this is mentioned in the published directions, to make it easier, also look for the two rows of concrete bollards at the entrance. Excellent warm welcome, lots of information offered. My only issue would be with the length of the grass, sadly a little too long, not quite what the published image implies. Overall excellent value for money.

Calm and tranquil.. just perfect!

We stayed a week here whilst visiting relatives.  The site is well maintained and has all the basic facilities you need (water, chemical disposal and good recycling facilities).   In response to a previous review, yes the water does take an age to fill an Aquaroll.. so sit back, relax and enjoy watching the local woodpecker or the pheasants.. or just the peacefulness of the whole place! We had mixed weather whilst here (typical British summer!) but had no issues getting off the site, despite it being a very wet day. There is a little noise from the road, but we were on the pitch nearest to it (our choice) and it soon blends in to the background. It is a lovely place, with easy access to local tourist attractions (if that's what you're after), some great walking for the dog and the beach nearby. It is definitely in our virtual brochure of sites we will visit again!
