Why stay here ...

Planted with silver birch, rowan and flowering cherry, Slinfold Club Site 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 in West Sussex, 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. Slinfold Caravan Club Site 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 Site 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.

First Visit

This was our first visit to a Volunteer run site. It was their last week open and the weather could not have been worse with heavy rain most days. However the wardens worked hard and unlike some conventional sites managed to keep the office open all day! They held a Macmillan Afternoon tea which was even attended by ladies from the village which shows what a good relationship they have built up with the village. It is only a pity that the Club do not value this site enough to make some improvements especially the site road which has become a series of potholes. We hope to visit again and maybe the Club will consider investing some money in the site.

Great for walking

The voluntary wardens do an excellent job and could not be more helpful, assisting new inexperienced members and ensuring that everyone is happy whilst on site. The site is basic with some noise from the nearby industrial unit which did not effect me personally. Excellent location for coast and various other places of interest. A previous reviewer suggested that the bottom gate should be locked overnight, I am an early riser to walk the dog so I don't really think it is reasonable to inflict another late night and early morning job on the wardens.

Good site but..

Stay here for three nights to 20/9/19. Clean well presented site with friendly volunteer wardens. Pitches are allocated which is unusually for a club site. We booked this site due to its proximity to the Downs Link, we used this each day to cycle and its great, went as far as Cranleigh to the north and just east of Horsham to the south. As mentioned by others and as pointed out in the site description there is an industrial unit very near and this can be noisy with the intermittent horn of a reversing fork lift particularly annoying from 6 in the morning. Around us we had three units each with transit type vans, sole male occupants obviously some form of tradesmens who were quite noisy in leaving each morning before 7 and one of them didn’t try to hide his urinating in hedge. There is an access gate at the bottom of the site to the north bound cycle track this is useful but should be locked during the nighttime to afford those pitched at that end of the site better security. Overall a nice site very near a pretty village with an excellent dog friendly pub and at £15 per night good value.

Incredibly friendly staff

We went to the campsite for the first time in the beginning of September on arrival the staff were welcoming you as if you were an old friend. Very happy to help in anyway they could. We found it was a haven tucked away on a lovely walk for your dogs and on a pub run. The pub and village shop were a mere 10 minutes walk away. The pub welcomes your dogs and serve up a very tasty filling meal of an evening reasonably priced too. Will putting it on one of our favourite campsite list.
