Stayed on this site for 4 nights in a quiet beautiful area, on grass able to find level area with outstanding views, Mr Drake was very welcoming, paid cash. Able to hear lots pf birds and see deer in the field in front. The site faces West with views to the west and North. Fresh Water and disposal sewage though quite basic but it worked for me. My days were cycling around the country lanes very little traffic, but do get the odd combine harvester and tractors. The lane up to the site is narrow in places with vehicles parking so careful driving is essential. Petworth House National Trust is close by, easy by Bike or walk. Great walking area needs OS Map. Lurgashal has a very well stocked store & Post Office with local produce and the Noah's Ark Pub a Green King establishment is very popular. A basic site no frills and hope to return again.
Had a very peaceful 2 night stay over a very wet weekend in early August 2021. The site is nice and large and pitches well spaced out. It had everything we wanted i.e. not a lot. Just fresh water and waste disposal. We were worried we might get bogged down on the grass after so much rain but got off no problem. The owner was helpful, saying he would give us a tow if needed but this was luckily not required.
This was our first outing in our new campervan (at the end of April) and it couldn't have been better. There were six very well spaced out vehicles at the edge of an arable field in beautiful countryside. There are excellent walks from the site and everything was so quiet, other than bird song. We will be happy to return.
As noted before, peaceful, beautiful views, lovely walks and loads of space on the site. All facilities were well managed and the relaxed attitude of the owner to arrival and departure was an additional bonus, adding to the easy-going feel of this site.
We visited this site 3 times this year for weekend breaks. If you want a peaceful site with good views and plenty of space with minimal basic facilities, this is the site for you. For the energetic there are plenty of walks in the surrounding area. For the not so energetic Petworth, Midhurst and Chichester are not far by car and well worth a visit. As the site was not full, the owner allowed us to stay as long as we liked on the final day, which virtually gave us an extra day on each visit.
