A perfect CL site!

It amazed us how a CL site which is actually fairly close to a busy road and with great access to places of interest could be so quiet and peaceful! This is a lovely site, and the owner was so kind and helpful. We had a weekend of disasters - motor movers packed up, roof light leaked - but Anne lent us ladders and we fixed the problem, and had an excellent stay. We saw lots of wildlife, and Glow Wild at Wakehurst, the reason for our visit, was excellent. Definitely one to recommend and return to!

One of the best

Birch Trees Farm continues to be one of the best Cls in the network and is ideal for stays in West Sussex. The large, flat grass site is kept to a high standard and the five pitches are arranged to give a really spacious feel. The carefully planted trees and shrubs encourage a variety of wildlife and give the impression of being in a garden setting. A drinking water point together with recycling bins and chemical emptying facility are all located near to the site entrance. A further water tap is located in the centre of the site. 10 amp electric supply points are available to all pitches.The Information Shed has a good selection of leaflets on the local area, together with a selection of books that are available for a small donation to the air ambulance. TV is generally good but can be variable, mobile phone signals are good. Hard standing areas are also available if required. Car parking in Brighton can be very difficult but there is a good Park and Ride that runs from Withdean Sports Centre although it does have height restrictions at some peak times. We recently stayed for four nights and were made most welcome by the owners and have no hesitation in recommending this adult only site to other members.

Lovely relaxing CL

Birch Trees Farm is tucked away down a quiet lane - ensure you follow the owners directions, but easy to find when you do. Its a huge grassy area with loads of room for all units, surrounded by lovely mature planting. The pitches are extremely generous and spacious. There is also hard standing pitches available if required. We had a lovely warm welcome, and there's a great information shed full of leaflets and information to help with your stay. Plenty of local walks if you don't wish to take the car/motorhome out. Thoroughly recommended, we will definitely stay again if we're in the area.

A pleasant week

There isn’t much more to be said than is already in the other reviews. An exceptionally large, pretty and well looked after CL with rural views. It is a peaceful haven in an otherwise busy part of the country. There are 4 good NT properties within 30 mins drive and a 5th 45 mins away and NT car parks on the easy to reach South Downs Way. There are large Waitrose and other supermarkets in Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill, which are a short drive away. The quaint village of Cuckfield is within easy walking distance and has places to eat and a small Co-op. The triangle of woodland and pasture bounded by the A272 to the North and the A273 and the B2036 to the East and West, with Ansty and the CL in the North West corner, is very attractive and crisscrossed with well-marked public footpaths and bridleways.

Fabulous..

Stayed for 2 weeks 09/07-23/07..... Birch Trees is a fabulous site, plentiful space, freedom to pitch up just how you decide and has a lovely countryside feel to it despite being in a busy county. Nature is key here and Mr & Mrs Upton are very keen to keep it that way, we loved watching the birds and bunnies! There is an information shed with a ton of info relating to places to visit and amenities locally. We've made the most of our National Trust membership as there is an abundance of houses and gardens within a reasonably short drive.....our favourite 2 being Standen House and Petworth. Day trip to Brighton with the open top City Sightseeing Bus tour is a good way to get around, see the different parts and learn some of it's history. West Wittering beach was beautiful but VERY popular...probably best to avoid a weekend and be prepared to pay £8.50 to park on a rough field as it is sooo busy. We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely return in the future to do more and will be staying at Birch Trees CL......

Beautiful Site

This is a wonderful site which has been lovingly maintained. Set in beautifully landscaped ground, lawned with mature trees and shrubs and a wild flower area, it is very spacious so plenty of room around your caravan. There is also a well stocked information room. We would definately return here in the future.

It did the business for us

We were looking for a site in order to do some local touring in the area and Birch Trees Farm was an ideal location. It is a quiet site with immaculate grounds. We stayed in our motorhome on one of the hard-standing pitches which had plenty of space and a convenient electric hook-up. Checking in was easy and the facilities were all that we required - fresh water, local tourist information, rubbish facilities and an easy to use and accessible chemical toilet point. We were visiting local gardens (High Beeches Woodland and Water Garden and Sussex Prairie Garden), as well as the Ditchling Arts+Crafts Museum. I highly recommend this CL.

Best site yet

Thank you Mrs Upton for the welcome on a rival in our MOTORHOME. AFTER reading an earlier review we were not sure of what space we will be given, but need not of been concerned as we had a really nice spot over looking the well kept field of flowers and wild life, this site was a real pleasure to stay at, we will certainly be staying again.

Such a Shame

We stayed B/H May weekend for 4 nights in our Motorhome. Was welcomed by the owner and was asked to pitch up on which was their winter pitch placed behind the field. We asked why couldn't we go on the empty hard standing pitch on the field with lovely views . The owner said that she wanted to keep that free in case a "caravan" came in. It was such a shame as we thought the site was lovely and had a great few days there but felt that being a Motorhome we weren't given the same treatment as a caravan, and could of enjoyed the views on the field especially as the hard standing pitch was empty ALL week end.
