Why stay here ...

Location, location, location...this is just what Bucket and Spade Holidays has in abundance. Based in the heart of West Sussex, Bucket and Spade is just 10 minutes from everything you need for the perfect, relaxing break. We are in lovely countryside and yet just 10 minutes from the beaches of Selsey, Bracklesham Bay and the Witterings. For walkers and nature lovers, we are just 10 minutes from Pagham and Medmerry Nature Reserves, and if you fancy a city break we are just 10 minutes from the beautiful city of Chichester, with its thirteenth century cathedral and thriving centre.

We are in the perfect place if you plan a visit to Goodwood. We are just a stone's throw from the ferry at Portsmouth, making Bucket and Spade an ideal stopover site.

Even closer to home, there are two stunning golf courses just two minutes drive away, and when you return from your day out you can relax in the friendly pub which is just across the road from us.

Electricity is supplied to each pitch. We have two hook ups with 16 amps and 3 with 10 amps and we charge £30 for week nights and £35 for weekends. These prices are for EHU, caravan plus car or motorhome and two adults. Additional people will incur an extra charge of £5 per person, per night. We do not charge extra for dogs or awnings.

Why not take a look at our Website which has plenty of information about things to do in the area.

Dogs are welcome.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bucket and Spade, we are sure your first visit won't be your last!

Absolutely tip-top!

Bucket and Spade
August 2021 A fantastic little site with loads of space so you don’t feel like you’re in a housing estate but free in the fields! Wonderfully organised and so so clean. The shower and toilets smelt amazing! A pleasure to use rather than an unpleasant experience. Even emptying the cassette toilet was better here as it was a flushing system with space to place and tilt the cassette right next to it. Peter was a really welcoming and helpful owner that helped us out even though we interrupted his dinner. Thanks so much. Can’t wait to return!! P.s. The Anchor pub just a few minutes up the road is definitely worth a visit. Really friendly staff and delicious food.

A Lovely Place

Bucket and Spade
We stopped here for 6 nights in April 2021. This was our second visit to the site and found it just as lovely as we previously did. Peter and Hayley (the new owners) are lovely, friendly people, this is a new venture for them and they are doing a great job. The CL is separated from the other part of the site by a fence and bushes. There are only 11 pitches in total though so it’s not crowded at all. The pitches are huge with plenty of space between and plenty of space for kids to play safely. There are some tremendous walks right on the doorstep, you are literally 20 metres away from a footpath which leads out over fields from which you can walk all the way down to Chichester Mariner, perfect for dogs. There is a small herd of deer that graze the fields and can be spotted most days. Unfortunately the pub over the road was closed when we visited, it is being renovated and will, I’m informed be opening shortly. It was nice to see kids having a good time, they had their bikes with them and had a bit of a zoom around most days. They didn’t bother us at all, they were a nice family. We plan on going back towards the end of June and personally, I can’t wait! Thanks Peter and Hayley, keep up the good work. I’ll bring more beer next time :o)

Excellent CL

Bucket and Spade

Stayed here in our motorhome for a one night stopover while visiting family in Selsey. This is a great little CL - spacious, peaceful, secure (padlocked gate), clean and well maintained. Friendly welcome on arrival. We paid a bit more than we are used to for a CL (£23/night) but we cannot fault the quality of the place and, with loos and a shower, water tap on the pitch and access to a chemical waste point, it goes way beyond what many CLs provide. We would have no hesitation at all about staying here again and for longer.  The site combines a MH&CC CL and a small 'other section' which is not members only.  We were in the 'other bit' as the CL was full when we booked, though I am using the term CL in this review

Excellent site, beautifully maintained, spotless!

Bucket and Spade
We stayed on the site for one night whilst visiting relatives. We walked from the site to the Anchor Pub (along a foot path just a 10 minute walk) where we met up with our relatives for lunch, really easy. The site is one of the best maintained and cleanest that we have ever stayed in. Lovely atmosphere with a mixture of families and couples staying. Some with dogs but all well controlled. The site is surrounded with country side and access to footpaths for walking. Although it is located off of a busy road into Selsey the noise of the traffic was minimal.Will definitely return there can't recommend it enough!!
