Why stay here ...

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 beautiful Arundel Castle and Gardens in nearby West Sussex, or the historic town of Lewes. 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.

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.

Enjoyable stay, suits singles or mature couples / friends.

There’s no doubt this site is great for visits to Brighton, although within a short walk to the beach my personal opinion is it’s not ideally suited to families, it has a mature feel, although there is plenty of space immediately outside the site for ball games. The access road does have some pot holes which look to be marked for repair, but note this is very dark with virtually no street lighting after daylight has ceased. There’s a decent Co-Op (Whitehawk Road) & Asda (Marina) for supplies. You can catch a bus from Whitehawk Road/Co-Op straight through the town centre (Pier or Pavillion) all the way to Portslade/Shoreham. Uber taxis are the easiest method if you have the App for travelling about. But then if you bring your cycles there are routes both ways, East - the under cliff route to Rottingdean & beyond or West - all the way along the see front passing the Western Esplanade close onto South Basin Road, stopping at Carats Cafe for refreshments. The site itself is clean, tidy all in line with the clubs standards & the wardens were attentive & friendly.

5 day visit

Grounds require some maintenance (ie: grass cutting/weeding). The site is very popular with dog walkers who continually excercise their dogs on site despite the fact there is a large open grass area adjacent to site. One warden actually allowed his dog to urinate against the motorhome water point & then allowed the dog to defecate on a grass area immediately outside a campervan, this is not a good example, having been a dog owner most of my life I always made an effort to excercise my dog in appropriate places. Despite this I have enjoyed my visit.
