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 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.

The site is excellent, drawbacks are not the fault of the site or the Club

I'll start with the down-sides. Brighton is a magnet for dossers, ne'er-do-wells, all manner of riff-raff, and the area the site is in seems to attract them in droves. Despite the Club and the Council having partially sorted out the parking issues in the approach lane, there are still numerous campervans, converted ambulances and the like who either buck the rules or work the system to be able to "wild camp" along the lane. There are also tent campers and rough sleepers who sleep in the bushes, on the grass etc, many of whom blatantly take advantage of the fact that the site shower blocks are not locked. The site itself accepts tent campers and non-members and so attracts a wide variety of unconventional people and similarly unconventional outfits, to put it mildly! I felt sorry for the site staff having to deal with some of the unpleasant sites that were left behind in some of the toilets, in some cases rendering them unusable until they had been cleared/cleaned or whatever. On the plus side, the staff do a blinding job keeping the site in tip-top condition, whilst maintaining courtesy and good humour. The site is well located for getting to Brighton, as well as the Marina where there are numerous cafes, restaurants etc. Particularly worth a mention is the Cherry Tree which is family and dog friendly. One final grumble - if I book an awning pitch, I would expect to be able to erect an awning without having to use a Kango to get the pegs in!!

Extended Stay

Just arrived back from what we can only describe as a great and family friendly site, arrived to find a great reception from wardens even tho extremely busy had time for all arrivals. We finally picked pitch 136 even tho it backs onto play area we had no late night noise issues all kids v well behaved, pitch nice and level and also one the biggest we've stayed on again a credit to the club for not being space greedy. The site also has a chippy and pizza van that comes onto site if your feeling lazy, the 2 shower blocks are immaculate, when one is closed the other is open even if you are at the top of the site the walk would be no more than a couple of minutes to the furthest block, The hard standings are a bit tough but with a 5lb lump hammer and rock pegs the awning was secure. ( recommended ) The access road can be tight if there are parked vehicles on the pay and display or if you meet a vehicle leaving site on the final bend but with sense 2 vehicles can easily pass. Brighton and the Marina are fantastic places to visit, the Marina has much to see inc Pubs and Restaurants it has a real cosmopolitan feeling if you get the weather, Brighton itself has something to offer everyone whatever your age. Prices in the Marina and the Town are a bit pricey but worth it in our opinion. Walk to local Asda about 15 mins if you can't be bothered to walk back Taxi cost between 5 and 6 pounds back to site money well spent in 30 degree heat. Overall a fantastic time for our stay, helped by the great weather but also the hard working and friendly staff. This is why we extended our stay with help from site staff. Will definitely return. Thanks again to the club. PS if it had a pool in this weather what a bonus.

How do you take 2 1/2 hours to clean toilet block?

Really, the upper toilet block is nothing special, yet it is closed for cleaning from 14.00 until 16.30. That means that if you are at the upper end of the site you have a very long walk to the toilet all afternoon - possibly when you've just arrived with kids or elderly people. The other toilet block is only closed for 1 1/2 hours, but when we arrived it was still not open 20 minutes after it was due to be. So there would be no excuse for their not being clean, would there? The access road (not the Club's responsibility) has improved since parking restrictions were introduced, but it has developed some alarming potholes that would rip your suspension out. Someone had put some gravel in the worst of them near the cafe, but the nearside edge of the road towards the exit is still very bad. The wi-fi was very slow and intermittent.
