Grumpy greeting

As a single female driving a campervan, my worst nightmare is to try and park on a sloping grass field after a day of torrential rain. So my nightmare was made worse on Saturday 12 October 2019 when I attempted to manoeuvre into position on the CL at Hundred Acre Barn. Campervans do not like wet, grassy sloping sites and I was doing my best, tried first gear, very slowly and then tried 2nd gear, also slowly................ then to make my nightmare complete, a very grumpy owner came over and said "Look at the damage to the field". Thank you for enquiring if I had had a stressful journey (that was sarcastic) and that I and my 2 small dogs were safe now and he could assist me (also that was sarcastic!) There was no assistance offered! There were terse commands to "reverse, now drive forward and DON'T LET IT SLIP" "DON'T LET IT SLIP". He obviously has never tried to drive a campervan on slippery, wet, sloping grass. I was appalled at that 'welcome' and will never visit again - grumpy owner

Little gem

Just come back from our second visit, very local to us but in a different world as away from everything, always a nice welcome and great to see the local wildlife like the birds of prey and the pheasants and grouse, good walks from the site and 2 good pubs to walk to , will be back again without a doubt

Smashing CL

Very quiet spot, overlooks arable field, Mrs Bray asked us to just pitch up on arrival, she came and had a chat early evening, there are water points by the electric hook up, grass was short. There are buses to Petersfield and Chichester bus number 54, about a 15 minute walk to bus stop which is opposite the Pub for Chichester, the bus to Chichester leaves at 10am and 12.15. Buses back are the 12.50 and 15.50 from the Cathedral. There is also a village shop near the bus stop in Compton. This is a working arable farm and must be very noisy at harvest time, with combines, and driers being used. Would come again when in the area but not at harvest time. Having a motor home we found it very useful having buses to go into Chichester without the hassle of driving and parking Bub and Mos

Relaxing break

We have recently enjoyed a couple of wonderful days on this CL. The views are terrific and it was great to stroll up the farm track adjoining the field and to see bluebells (English variety), celandines and wood anemones. We also enjoyed watching the day to day workings of the farm. Make sure you take your binoculars as there is so much to observe. Thank you Mr and Mrs Bray.

OUTSTANDING SITE WITH GREAT VIEWS

We have just spent two separate weeks on this site this year and have enjoyed the peace and tranquility the venue offers. Views of the countryside are outstanding and beautiful. The owners Mr and Mrs Bray are very welcoming. We have stayed on this site four times in the last two years and would thoroughly recommend it. The walks are numerous and easy to find without maps. It must be understood, like many, this is a working farm but this does not detract from the experience. They offer water and electric to each pitch which is great for £15.00 per night. During one stay this year, one member did not adhere to club rules which concerned the owners, showing how they care for their customers. They made us aware and we appreciated this greatly. We have been Caravanning since the seventies and prefer the small friendly sites and if we require the full facilities we would go to the main Club sites where these are available. As we said this is a full working farm and you will find farm buildings etc. These however does detract from the site. We have found the owners to be very accommodating, even by letting us wander freely over the farm, keeping to the paths. In conclusion if you are looking for a tranquil site this is for you. We give this site a five star rating.
