Why stay here ...

Planted with silver birch, rowan and flowering cherry, Slinfold Club Campsite is a gem nestled at the end of a country lane on the edge of a pretty stone-roofed village. The caravan park is ideal for a relaxing holiday break at one of our favourite West Sussex campsites, offering an amazing variety of wildlife, lovely walking trails and well-kept cycle routes, including the South Downs Link to the North Downs which follows a quaint old railway line adjacent to the site. Slinfold Caravan Club Campsite is a haven for dogs, with many walks directly from the site and the dog-friendly Red Lyon pub only a 15 minute walk away.

Slinfold Club Campsite has a reception area built on the spot of an old railway station which was closed in 1965 - fascinating pictures of this piece of local history are on display. The nearby village of Slinfold is a charming place to wander, with its rose-covered cottages still retaining their old names such as The Tannery and Forge Cottage. Local people extend a warm welcome to visitors, particularly at fete and flower festival times which are memorable events for young and old alike. The site is well located for visiting the nearby towns of Horsham, Guildford and Dorking or exploring the south coast. Please note: some noise can be expected from nearby factory.

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Geocaching trip

Slinfold Caravan Club Site
Had a very good stay on this site wish the C&MC had loads more like this as many sites are now over charging especially in high season. The wardens here at Slinfold were top notch. On checking in and being shown our pitch by Nick the warden he told us about the locals putting on a film show down in the village and we were glad he told us as the night was fantastic and wine at just £2 a glass plus a very good film whats not to like. We came here to ride the trail and look for Geocaches as the Down Link trail has lots of them along its route. The track in parts is not great but we managed taking time in the more tricky parts.Had a problem with one bike that with the wardens advice used the local guy to get a very quick repair that kept us on the road. Bus service is very good as both ways picks up at the end of the lane to the site. Went to Guilford & Horsham on the bus using our bus passes . If somebody puts more Geocaches into play we would come back no problem. Had a noise problem with the factory starting work early so moved pitches . Do like the sites without toilet blocks lets face it we all have our own facilities that we have had to use since covid and in fact the club asks you to use your own so why not make more sites like this ?.

Hidden gem

Slinfold Caravan Club Site
We booked this campsite because it is right on the Downs Link cycle path and, even better, is more or less half way along it, making a return journey south one day and a return journey north on another day very doable. It is a lovely path and goes through some delightful places and I would recommend a detour to Steyning (quiet road, lovely tea rooms) and Horsham (a bridleway from the Downs Link takes you to Broadbridge Heath and from there quiet roads and paths to Horsham.) My only word of caution is that the path is very bumpy in places so make sure your tyres, suspension and sitting bones are prepared! Our bikes were fine but we needed very soft cushions to sit on, especially after the southern route. The site itself is lovely and, although facilities are limited (as advertised), they are clean. The staff are lovely and Nick, in particular, was very helpful with advice about the cycling (and refreshments en route.) We would definitely recommend Slinfold.

A lovely Bank Holiday Weekend

Slinfold Caravan Club Site
⁣ Site Review 🤩⁣⁣ Slinfold - West Sussex ⁣⁣ *Small and peaceful site with 33 pitches. Mix of grass and hard standing. We were on pitch 4. *This is 1 of 3 @candm sites that is run by volunteer wardens. Mick & Sue, Peter & Lesley were the friendliest wardens we have had the pleasure of meeting. They really should be commended for their roles in keeping this site open, as without volunteer wardens it would close. *Site is well kept, with 2 service point areas which are spotless. *Downs Link runs parallel to the site, excellent for walking and cycling. *Approx 10 minute walk into village of Slinfold, with pub and village store. *Lovely walk along the Downs Link to the village of Rudgwick. The @milkchurn coffee shop serves the best cheese on toast, made with Sussex Charmer made on he farm. There is also a micro brewery @firebirdbrewery where I purchased some local brew. ⁣⁣ Points to note:⁣⁣ *This site has NO toilet/shower block. ⁣⁣ *Pitches are allocated upon arrival, as it is very narrow at the end, so it depends on your vehicle size as to where you are pitched. We were allocated a lovely grass pitch near the entrance……….not sure if we would have enjoyed being on a hard standing pitch down the narrow end. We would definitely return to this site as it’s just over an hour from home and we loved how quiet it was 😊 Thanks to all the other Happy Campers that we met during our stay. Wish you all well and hope to catch up again sometime. John, Debra & Archie 🐶 (blind jingle jangle dog) ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣

Peaceful a step back in time

Slinfold Caravan Club Site
Came to Slinfold for 3 nights . Kevin and Sue were on duty a friendly helpful couple who are an asset to the club , site kept spotless service points bins emptied every day and cleaned /sterilised. This is our ideal site lots of walking the Downs Link passes the site ideal for dogs and cycling. The village a 5/10 minute walk has a village shop and opposite the village pub , the residents all said good morning a friendly smile was appreciated. These small sites we prefer, don’t require toilet/ shower block as our van has it all. Thank you Kevin and Sue for making our visit so enjoyable the club is so lucky to have you .

For a short stay

Slinfold Caravan Club Site
We have just come home from a 4 night stay. Firstly, the wardens - who are volunteers, are absolutely great and extremely helpful. But come on Club, as someone else has said, do please give them a sit on mower! They work so hard with that walk behind mower. The Club does need to spend money on this site. No facilities is fine, but the hard standings need tidying up and some of the grass badly needs renewing. Also the photos on this page are accurate - up to a point! Pitches are allocated to fit this narrow site (we are 6.25 and among the smaller vans so don't quite get this). We, and quite a few others, were sent to the far end. Hard standing but very little grass between and mud and tree debris behind. And we have two dogs. All fine until it rained, then pretty muddy and unpleasant at the back of the awning. The vans nearest the entrance have lovely grassy pitches. How we did envy them! (and a lot of the pitches were empty throughout our stay). The far end is near the industrial estate (you can't see it). They do start at 6am (not sure where 5am came from) but the noise is only from the forklift trucks and a bit of hooting - they don't have reversing sirens (mercifully). It really wasn't very noisy. Two service points (spotless) for a small site so never far from a bin/water/waste etc. Site right on Downslink path with access both end. Fantastic for dog walking or for cycling. Slinfold village is an easy walk (and I'm a bit limited with my walking at the moment). Dear little village, lovely people, little shop for very basics (also ice cream) and Red Lion pub gave us a lovely meal. Big garden and very covid aware (take your masks). Whilst the weather was hot and sunny, we had a lovely relaxing time (but would have liked grass to sit on - are you listening CMHC?) but when it rained, it was a bit dreary. There are overhanging trees but we've had worse. Nice enough little site - probably won't return though.
