Why stay here ...

Nestled in a tree lined, park like setting, Rowan Park Club Site is adjacent to a country park yet conveniently situated alongside the A29 and just 2 miles from the traditional seaside resort of Bognor Regis. Bognor Regis has a shingle and sand beach, promenade plus many appealing entertainments including South Coast World - a Butlins attraction - where one entrance fee allows access to all of the rides throughout the day - a bargain for the whole family to enjoy.

Rowan Park Club Site also gives you convenient access to Arun Leisure Centre, home to a fine indoor swimming pool. Must see attractions are Arundel Castle and Chichester Cathedral, whilst the Chichester Festival Theatre offers theatre goers the chance to experience both classical and contemporary plays whilst Arundel hosts a popular Music and Drama Festival at the end of August. You will be well located for Glorious Goodwood in July, Goodwood Revival (September) and the Festival of Speed in June, which means you'll be well located to enjoy a range of events when staying at this caravan site in West Sussex. Picturesque Bosham is also nearby and offers a lovely walk along the harbour and pubs within the village. With all these attractions and more throughout the year, the area has a varied appeal that won't disappoint.

Our mini break at a great site

When we saw the small shopping park as we turned into the site gate we did wonder what we had come to. They say first impressions and all that, well that vision was behind us, and on entering the site we were amazed at what lay before us. A wonderful green space with trees, nicely laid out pitches of all types and a lovely open feel to the place. We picked a grass pitch on the right hand side as we went through the barrier, lots of space which we liked. Having pitched and erected our awning, advised the staff of our pitch number and picked up the keys for the toilet / shower blocks, we settled back into a relaxing 4 night stay with two exited Grandchildren. There is lots to see and do in the area, we particularly enjoyed the Roman Villa ruins near Chichester. Chichester itself and the harbour area, LittleHampton and more. The facilities on the site were spotless and well maintained. The staff were very helpful and professional. We had been told about road noise and in truth there is some, more to the East side of the site. We were more in the middle towards the West side and barely noticed. In all honesty we loved the site and while there is a little road noise, this was more than compensated for by having a Lidl and other shops just across the road. Just over half a mile further is a Sainsbury, with a pub adjacent to it, ( they do a have a great carvery) on the other side of the road is a Tesco. perfect for Motor Homes, even great for us with a caravan We will return to this lovely site. Thanks to all there.

Top Site with Top Staff.

We have just spent another 3 nights at Rowan Park and were not disappointed. My wife had a bit of a medical glitch on our first night, an ongoing problem. The wardens found her in terrible pain outside of the wash block and walked her back to our pitch and made sure she was safely in the van. The next morning they came to check that she was ok. We are not sure of their names but we can't thank them enough. The site is top condition with everything clean and tidy. Yes there is a bit of road noise but the site info does warn of that. Overall a nice place to stay, we will be going back.

Fabulous site

Although some reviews mention the noise of the traffic and yes, during our stay we heard the same overall our stay was fabulous. The site is very well managed with a good size pitch on offer. The shower/toilet facilities were spotless and our hosts very helpful

Noisy and backs onto a graveyard

I'm really very sorry to have to give a bad review, but this campsite was, unfortunately, the worst I have ever stayed on and I've been camping for a good few years (since the early 1980s), but only recently joined and used the Caravan Club facilities. Good points: the pitches were flat, level and gravelled. Hook-up points are shared, 4 to one post. There were a lot (and I mean a lot) of big shops nearby (KFC and Halfords were located opposite, while half a mile away were Sainsbury, Tesco and the like). Bad points: Pitch backed onto a graveyard (was not informed about this). A very, very busy main road running alongside the site. A key for the toilet blocks was obligatory which indicated to me the staff (unlike at other sites) did not regularly check the site/facilities or its customers satisfaction levels. I said I didn't need the key because I had my own toilet in the campervan. This was met with stiff resistance and the reason given was that staff would know I was off the site when my key had been handed back in through the letterbox. I tried to negotiate the reasons why I didn't want it and other ways around the situation, but this was their system and they were sticking to it. I'd rather not say anymore as I don't wish to spread ill-feelings. However, I will be avoiding this site in future.

Our thanks to the staff at Rowan Park and to the Caravan Club booking team

We were already booked in for a fortnight at Rowan Park following our holiday in France, unfortunately a sudden death in the family changed our plans. We were in the South of France when we received the terrible news and needed to bring our start date forward at Rowan Park and change our tunnel booking so we could get to our family who live around Bognor. I contacted the CC booking team and they changed all our bookings within minutes allowing us to start our journey back. On our arrival at Rowan Park the Wardens and Assistant Wardens were excellent nothing was too much trouble for them during our initial stay and subsequent return for the cremation at one of the busiest times of the year (festival of speed). We would like to express our sincere thanks for all of their help and concern during this trying time.
