Why stay here ...

The Club is planning to undertake some pitch works to this site between January - April 2020. They will be designated to one area of the site and some noise may be caused as a result, but this will be kept to a minimum during the construction period. We look forward to welcoming you back or making you welcome on your first visit.

What we are planning:

  • Introducing 20 more serviced pitches.
  • We have listened to member feedback and will be decompacting the hardstanding pitches. The site is situated on chalk therefore the surface is particularly hard to penetrate, and for members who wish to peg in awnings, this makes it almost impossible to do. We will be undertaking this work over the next 3 winter periods to ensure that the site can remain open all year round.

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.

Pleasantly Surprised

I have been to Brighton Club Site before but many years ago,and to be honest I was pleasantly surprised.Yes i was out of season and can imagine this site could get very busy at peak times.However even in October it was very busy.It is possible to walk into Brighton Marina for restaurants and pubs and an ASDA. Brighton in itself has a busy vibrant town centre with the Lanes to while away the shopping hours. The first week of my stay encountered very good weather meaning a stroll along the seafront was possible from the site.Parking is awful around Brighton so you could use the Volkes electric railway for a change to transport you into the town. My pitch did back onto Whitehawk football club so not sure what the noise evel would be when they play at home. All in all a very good site,with approachable warden team and handliy placed for Brighton and surrounds.

Great Stay

Location of site good for visiting Brighton & surrounding area. Site as expected well tended & shower blocks to the usual high standard. All wardens we met were very pleasant & helpful. The only downside was the noise from neighbours leaving at 06:00 leaving engine running & slamming doors & another who had obviously mislaid something & was slamming all lockers & door at 22:00, but you can get that anywhere. Recommended site & we will be returning

Excellent site.

An excellent site close to Brighton. Staff were very cheerful and they all seemed to be enjoying there work. The site is extremely clean. Will be staying there again. The only bad point was we had to leave.

Surprisingly peaceful

Spent the weekend on this site which was well maintained and considering how close to a city it is it’s peaceful. Large flat pitches spread over a number of different areas.

Can we have some money spent on the needs of traditional members please?

We use this site often because of family commitments in the area, and we have seen some changes over the years. The site is always busy and is definitely not what I would regard as a peaceful site, but we didn't experience any really rowdy behaviour or other disturbances during our stay. We enjoyed a first class reception from Debbie and Nick in the office, all smiles, helpful advice and a really warm welcome. Where things went wrong was the condition of the pitch. I am not exaggerating when I say it was impossible to get steel rock pegs into the ground using a 4lb club hammer, so I went to B&Q and bought a SDS drill in order to penetrate the concrete that lies a couple of inches under the stones. What irritates me is that the club has known about this problem for some time and the only response has been to change some awning pitches to non-awning because it's impossible to get pegs into the ground. Meanwhile, money has been found to convert two grass pitches to hard-standings in order to accommodate two over-priced Airstreams, lay new roadways at the top of the site to service the ten or so new glamping pods that have been built, etc etc, but there's no cash to dig up and re-surface the hard-standings for the benefit of us long-standing traditional caravanners. I've been paying my membership fees and site fees for over 30 years and I feel that the club now regards me as a dinosaur while spending money on "Experience Freedom" projects. Come on Caravan Club, let's try looking after those of us that still want to experience our freedom in the traditional way.
