Why stay here ...

Bow Hill Farm is a peaceful and tranquil CL site set within a small farm on the Downs north of Chichester, West Sussex within the South Downs National Park. The site is constructed over two fields situated either side of the farm wildlife pond - the top field consists of 3 pitches, with 2 further pitches in the lower field.  All pitches are hard standing, (8m x 8m), electric hook ups (16amp) and drinking water taps. The site consists of well maintained grassland and hedgerows. This site is adult only and well behaved dogs are welcome.

Our facilities also include an electric shower and two WC cubicles housed within a log cabin. You will also find a washing machine and a dryer which operate via a coin meter - £1 for 30 minutes. There is a shaver socket and hand basin with hot and cold water in each WC cubicle.

The pitches all offer views across the Downs to Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. In the evening you can sit and watch the city lights in the distance, as you relax in the beautiful and peaceful countryside. As well as farm animals such as sheep and horses you will also be able to spot birds of prey such as buzzard and red kite.

The CL site has a footpath passing along the boundary allowing quick access to footpaths and bridleways within the area, offering beautiful walks through local farmland and woodland.

The Royal Oak pub at Hooksway is about 1 mile away and The White Horse Restaurant at Chilgrove is 0.25 mile away. The nearest local shop is at South Harting (about 2 miles)

Chichester, Petersfield and Portsmouth all offer local attractions and shopping.

Our preferred booking method is via our online facility where you can also check availability and prices.

Fantastic stay beautiful CL

Bow Hill Farm
Really lovely CL …. Great Facilities on site well thought out and very clean. Great views, great dog walks. We really enjoyed our stay and will return if we are in the south again. White Horse pub…… over rated, over priced and not recommend for food. I am fussy but at £22 for a Sunday roast it needs to be a £22 roast ….. it wasn’t dont be fooled by appearance of the place the food is mediocre at best. This has nothing to do with the CL which I reiterate is excellent. Thank you for a lovely stay.

3rd trip, unusual for us and that says it all

Bow Hill Farm
Our 3rd trip to Bow Hill. Other than sites close to home it's unheard of for us to return to the same place as we like going to different areas. We've previously been on pitches 4 and 5 but took a chance on pitches 2 and 3 which had just been put in when we last visited. At that time there was little grass and they weren't established as per some previous reviews. The grass is established now and the pitches are huge and loads of space between you and the neighbour. Our elderly dog struggled a bit with the large stones on the hardstanding (the original pitches used a smaller pea shingle) and these are chunkier stones and even with awning groundsheet down we couldn't walk on it without shoes, however that's a minor complaint. Fabulous walking for dogs from the site, hardly saw a soul. Good pubs nearby and loads to do in the area. The polo at Cowdray Park is free on weekdays (just get tickets on the website) and you can take dogs on lead and a picnic. Stroll from Chichester Marina around Dell Quay to the pub at Bosham. Take a trip to Selsey and pick up excellent seafood at Potters. Stroll around Portsmouth's historic harbour and view the Mary Rose. Perfect site if you go with friends in another caravan as you can have pitches 2 and 3 or 3 and 4 and it feels like private camping. Facilities are clean and have everything you need. Didn't see the owner but that didn't bother us as we've been before and had done our research of the area and have OS maps. Mobile and TV signal good and free WiFi too.

Not long enough

Bow Hill Farm
We were booked in for 3 nights but unfortunately we could only stay for 2 which definitely wasn’t long enough to enjoy the fantastic views and tranquility.Everything was beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean showers and toilet .There are lots of walks from the site which our dog loved. We had a lovely day at Bosham,a real must place to visit and did a lovely walk around the estuary. Unfortunately,we didn’t really meet the owners which is always nice to do and the only thing we missed would be some local information on the area .Otherwise,we absolutely loved this site and are looking for another visit soon.

All pitches are large and on hardstandin with EHU. Also have own water tap and grey water disposal.

Lovely quiet clean site with easy access to lovely walks

Bow Hill Farm
Just stayed for 3 nights for the first time. Very impressed. Super clean organised site with lots of space between pitches. We had pitch no 4 which although was more exposed to winds had great views. Lambs in fields next door, baby coots in wildlife pond behind us. Toilet block kept very clean with washing machine and tumble drier. Takes £1 coins. Lovely to have water at each pitch. We walked in different directions every day onto footpaths direct from the site. Easy access to South Downs Way and Monarch’s Way with glorious views. Within short distance is Inholme Wood where we had a glorious walk on trails through vast areas of bluebells and wild garlic, absolutely lovely. From there we walked round to the Devil’s Humps and over Bow Hill.
