Lovely open site

Chalcroft Cottage
Very secure (narrow) entrance to a good, level, open and sunny field with shade if required. A pleasant welcome from Lynette. Surprisingly for a small CL there is the useful addition of a toilet/shower block, with no extra charge. Re. previous comments about road noise, the site is set well back from the road which is 30mph anyway and certainly didn’t bother us. Good dog walk from site, beaches, pubs and shops all within walking distance. Nyetimber is a short drive with a choice of pubs; we enjoyed a good meal at The Lion. Thanks Lynette and Richard for a enjoyable stay.

Friendly welcome at a site that's just a few miles from the coast.

Chalcroft Cottage
Spent six nights at Chalcroft Cottage just before the Jubilee weekend. Richard and Lynette are very friendly and helpful and the site is very well kept and spacious. With the promenade just a few miles away it's easy to get into Bognor Regis and we cycled in several times and rode the full length of the prom and back. As usual I've made a video of the site which can give a much better impression of it than I can put down in words. https://youtu.be/f8tJuzt_99Q

Great welcome

Chalcroft Cottage
Richard is the perfect host, the welcome he gives on arrival is second to none. The approach lane is narrow, but short and only goes to the field, so not really a problem. The field is a good size, relatively flat and you can choose your own pitch, depending on what is available. We arrived in early April and were the first one's in, so had our choice of the field. It has a wonderful sunny aspect and is a great size. The chickens are entertaining and access to Bognor Regis, on foot, is a pleasant walk. We can't comment on the facilities as the water heater was broken when we were there, so no hot water for showers/washing up etc. The biggest downside to this site is the road noise. Others have said it isn't obtrusive but it really is. Obviously, wind direction would make a difference but the road literally passes straight in front of the site and it's a busy road.

Peaceful bolthole near the coast

Chalcroft Cottage
An early season break at this spacious CL. Having said that the approach lane isn't. Owners of new 8ft. caravans will have to breathe in. Water pressure makes filling an aqua roll or motorhome tank need the addition of reading material while you wait. Ground seems fairly firm and well drained although I took the precaution of track mats just to be sure. Natives are friendly.

Lovely campsite

Chalcroft Cottage
So glad we found this lovely campsite, as mentioned before a hidden jem. Richard was the perfect host, we stayed for 3 peaceful nights. The campsite was flat and surrounded by trees, lots of wildlife. There was so much to see and do in the area, I would recommend the Tangmere military aviation museum, and the Gribble pub, good real ale and food.
