Well maintained site in a great walking location

This is a really neat but characterful site. Well maintained, and with plenty of trees but you are not overhung. Facilities are really tidy and clean. The walks straight from the site, up onto North Downs / Pilgrim's Way, through Chaldon, along Happy Valley, and through the woods to Alderstead Heath, and more, are great. Tremendous views form the North Downs. Only gave 4* for Peace and quiet, as there is a slight um from M25. Great cycling on the nearest NCN cycle routes too.

An oasis of calm

This week I stayed at Alderstead Heath campsite with my young daughter and her best friend. The wardens were friendly, polite and helpful, without being in any way intrusive. The site and facilities were immaculate. Only an hour away from our home In London. Super little playground and lovely walks nearby. We shall definitely be returning. Thank you.

Not up to Caravan and Motorhome Club Standards

We stayed for 5 nights on serviced pitch and were disappointed by a number of aspects regarding the way the site was managed. The COVID rules restricted the sanitary bocks to 5 wrist bands which were left in sanitised fluid at the entrance. On many occasions that we used the facilities all 5 bands were in the fluid and showers and WC’s were occupied. For a 48 hour period only 4 bands were in the fluid when the blocks were empty. Other caravaners also commented on the large number of people not following rules. The grass was excessively long and long enough to disguise dog dirt just to the rear of our pitch. We were also surprised by the number of commercial vehicle on site and caravans with registration plates not matching their accompanying vehicles. One of whom was spraying his sporty BMW car windows with black out paint on his day off from work. On the plus side there is a lovely countryside walk to The Fox at Caterham, about 2 miles over open countryside and plenty of other walking routes. The wardens were very helpful and guided us to the site due to local road closure. They are aware of the issues regarding the wrist bands but my personal view is that they don’t feel empowered to challenge the type of people non conforming. We shall not return and would expect the club to take note of mine and other ,reviews.

Peaceful perfect Location

I simply can't concur with the last 2 reviews. A warm welcome awaits you at this site from the wardens. We arrived yesterday the 1/9/20 to a picture perfect site. It is very peaceful and tranquil. Very well maintained by the staff. The first night was very quiet no signs of any "alleged" travellers quite the opposite in fact. Large pitches well spaced out lots of room. We are in larger than average Motorhome 7.4 metres no issues getting into the site just avoid Dean Lane our sat nav took us the correct way. A great location for walking and cycling. Dog friendly and great for children as well. A nice play park and wide open spaces for them. I would highly recommend this site.

Another Great Stay 28/08 - 01/09

In reference to the pervious review, we cannot comment on all aspects of the review however the reference to the long grass the reason for this is when the grass is cut short and then put under the stress of heat and groundsheets coving it, vans / cars driving on it it does not respond well ( my job is looking after sports pitches ). As far as the loud music is concerned that was not coming from the site it was an illegal rave taking place in the woods adjacent to the site so apart from reporting it to the Police which I know they did, there wasn't alot the wardens could do. Good Covid-19 procedures in place, we have visited this site many times and love it and will be returning soon.
