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.

Beware of possible access problems

In general this site is well run and being close enough to Brighton centre convenient for most holiday purposes. But you may encounter access problems on certain days of the year when organised activities are taking place in the adjoining park and sports fields. We arrived just after 12 noon on a Sunday to find absolute chaos due to a massive cycle race event. Cars, coaches and vans were illegally parked on the narrow access road to the campsite making it almost impossible to get in, with consequent huge traffic jams on surrounding roads. The wardens said they had not been told about the event beforehand. But otherwise the site is fine save for the usual complaints, registered here in other reviews, regarding dogs, Muzak in the toilet blocks and speed. One caravan outfit came by us on the crescent at the top of the site doing at least 35mph. And I did mention to a warden the crazy chemical emptying points where the tap hose was so long it was fouled by the effluent and when you tried to use it to rinse the tank the backflow device prevented it from being possible. I gather this is a problem elsewhere too. Why? How long has the Club been in existence? One final warning....we found that the pitches furthest from the entrance were bothered by flies whereas those down the site were apparently not so unfortunate. Maybe something to do with proximity to the civic dumpit site further up the hill.

Pleasant, and feels small, for a large large site

I like everything about this site, except for one thing… Please remove the piped “music” from the toilet blocks. You may like 60s and 70s pap but after each visit to the facilities I felt like smashing things.

Enjoyble Time

We stayed at this site middle of August, the Warden's were very friendly, hard working and chatty. The site is a credit to them, I think they work very hard to keep it clean and tidy. The only problems we saw were irresponsible people thinking the rules apply to others and not them, think again please!! Dog owners just letting their dogs wander round pitches without a tether and allowing their dogs to toilet on pitches because they are too bone idle to walk them off site. Then there are the clowns who ignore the 5mph speed limit...the limit is in place for a reason....saving a couple of seconds is not worth risking another childs life!! There are only a few simple, easy to follow rules, try considering other people using the sites and stop having a go at the wardens for trying to ensure you have a safe and stress free stay.

Large site that needs some refresh

Overall the site is kept very clean and tidy. However some people seem to use the site as there personal dumping ground. On arrival arrival it was a bit like being back at school with notices and warnings everywhere with words like MUST DO THiS AND DONT DO THAT. But on watching some off the people using the site I can see why (dog fouling being left in the middle of foot ways etc). The wardens work very hard but didn't in the week we were there seem as friendly as other sites we have been to. We were given a service pitch to use which looking at the five in the row was the most uneven, the pitches could also do with being dug up and re laid as the ground was like concrete and I bent several pegs erecting the awning. They have put some fresh dressing down but that is only a cosmetic look. Overall the site is enjoyable and clean enough for everyday use. Brighton unfortunately seems to be overrun with homeless people and a lot of wild camping around the area. We will probably not be returning for a few years

Clean but far

Very clean parc and well behaved and helpful people. There was nothing wrong about the park itself. Some wild parkers and campers in the way up to the park. Tip: a shuttle bus to Brighton pier? It's not so close as you would think..
