Why stay here ...

By 17 April 2021 Brighton Club Site will have ten new Serviced Pitches and based on member feedback, phase 2 of our 3 phased project will be complete whereby we will have decompacted 52 hardstanding pitches.

Brighton Club Site is ideally located just 2 miles east of Brighton. Nestled within a fold of the South Downs and just a short distance inland from the Marina, the picturesque East Sussex caravan park offers easy access to the many attractions of this popular town. Buses are regular and for rail enthusiasts the historic Volks Railway which runs along the prom will be a treat.

Brighton is a classic and lively British seafront town, filled with all the attractions you would expect from a famous coastal resort. The shopping is excellent with many unusual boutiques and antique shops to browse in. The town also has an operational pier, complete with amusement arcades and some of the finest fish and chips on the south coast, and is home to the Royal Pavillion. The site is also well placed for visiting the historic town of Lewes, or the beautiful Arundel Castle and Gardens in nearby West Sussex. With plenty to see and do locally and extensive recreational grounds adjacent to the caravan park, you're sure to have a holiday here that will be hard to forget.

Fab stay, too short!

Having recently returned from a short 2 night stay at the Brighton site, we were very impressed with the organisation, attention to detail and cleanliness. The staff are clearly working extremely hard to maintain such high standards, along with providing a very friendly and happy site. We were made to feel very welcome, and always greeted with smiles and positivity whether in reception or around the site. We would particularly like to thank Kim and Helen who went out of their way to help answer any questions, and provide advice and suggestions, always with a smile and with good humour! Great location for Brighton seafront and bike rides along the promenade into Hove. We also came across a newly renamed/refurbished local pub, The Curzon on Rock Street (recommended by a local) which was only about a 10/15 minute walk from the site which served good food (big portions!) and beer, nothing pretentious, and gave a warm welcome so would recommend that. If there was any criticism, it was that there was too much cheese on the pizza my husband ate! We were very impressed with the site and would definitely return for a longer stay. Thank you for making our stay such a positive experience, especially in such challenging and uncertain times

Better than last time

When I used the site earlier this year I was more than disappointed. Whist some of my earlier criticism remains valid, our experience this time was much improved. Firstly, the staff seem to have done away with their policy of closing the office all morning, so that's good. Also, the site seems to have been given something of a cosmetic makeover, the road markings have been repainted, the grass trimmed and the leaves cleared away. The staff also seemed more sociable, perhaps because they had just had four weeks of lock-down without any hassle. There are still caravans parked on the road outside despite parking restrictions being in place, but overall this was an entirely satisfactory stay. One final point though, does the 5mph speed limit not apply to site staff using the little electric buggy?

Great site for Brighton

Great for location to Brighton. But do think expensive. People who park on the road come in and use the facilities( shower/toilets). Road was empty when we visited in the week in Oct. It’s good that people with vans can empty and refill with water. Not sure how much that costs. Saw one young chap in his van. Good walks from site and cycle into Brighton or along coast the other way. We go as we like to visit Brighton usually a couple times in a year. Usual facilities and quality of C&MC big sites.

Cars

The site is well placed for visit to Brighton with good bus connection. Its clean and the staff are always very friendly, however some who use the site clearly cannot understand the 5 mph speed limits. We were on a pitch just opposite the first toilet block and many cars going past seemed to think they are on a normal road, travelling at least 30 mph. What is the rush!!!??? This needs to be enforced as while I don’t have a young child or dog its really annoying and can be dangerous, particularly in the awful weather we had this weekend.

Not the best of sites

This site is extremely convenient if you want to visit Brighton, and it is a well laid out site as per most Caravan Club locations. Beyond that it doesn't have much going for it. Firstly, many of the pitches are laid on something close to concrete and, despite being classed as awning pitches, it's only possible to get pegs in the ground if you come equipped with a hammer drill. Secondly, for some reason it has been decided to close the office between 1000 and 1300 hours (although I think this has now changed to 1200), resulting a long queue of vehicles waiting to get in. The lane approaching the site is once again occupied by an assortment of motorhomes, caravans with number plates removed etc being used as living accommodation, despite there being parking restrictions which clearly are not enforced. And try getting in and out of the site with a large outfit when football is being played in the park and you are going to struggle. The site accepts non-members so there is no control over who stays there, and there is nothing to stop a group of rowdy yobs using the camping pods for a boozy party weekend as happened while we were there. Now let's get on to dog owners - am I the only person who takes any regard of the section in the Club book that says "do not allow your dog to urinate or mess anywhere on the site"? There is a huge field right outside the gate yet most people seem to think it is OK to let their dogs use any part of the site as a toilet. I had one woman allow her dog to pee on the grass outside my awning and another who allowed her dog to poo right in front of my caravan. It's time the Club got to grips with this. And finally, despite being given a COVID leaflet asking people to keep their distance and not cut across other people's pitches, people are too lazy to stick to the paths and walked right in front of my awning just to cut a corner off, including one of the staff employed to clean the Airstreams. I will probably suffer this site again because it is convenient for Brighton where I have family but were that not the case I would give it a wide berth.
