Adequate site but….

This is a decent enough site however we found it quite a trek to Brighton Marina which is situated just outside of the campsite (at least a 20-30 min walk). Ok walking there downhill, however bear in mind the walk back is uphill. For someone with mobility problems, elderly or just not in peak condition this would be a problem. However if you want to take your car there is a free multi story car park adjacent to the Marina and an ASDA. A word of caution; eating/drinking at the Marina is expensive. An ‘attractions’ pack of places to go and of interest is available from reception, which was nice but a lot of the leaflets were for places further afield, so not that useful. Site itself was kept immaculately clean and there were men on grass cutters driving around the site quite regularly. I did not use the shower facilities but my husband did and he said people were not being considerate about how they left their shower cubicles. People are required to squeegee out the floor of their shower cubicles after use, ready for the next user. This was obviously not being done by all users. We didn’t have any children with us this time which we were glad about as something happened whilst we were there that could have been quite upsetting for them (but more about that later). Tbh, I don’t think this site is a site for children as it doesn’t have much to entertain them and there seemed to be lots of older campers (us amongst them!) and not too many with families. Saying that it is a nicely placed site for getting to Brighton itself (park at the multi story car park by the Marina and walk through - opposite side to the ASDA - the underpass along the front to the VOLKS electric railway (White building on the right, takes about 5 minutes) and get a lift along the seafront to Brighton Pier (£5 ish return per adult). One of the highlights of our trip! A walk around the LANES in the middle of Brighton town is nice and well worth it, although it can get pretty crowded. It seems Brighton is an expensive place! We took a trip out to a NT house (Bateman’s) which was fabulous (about an 1.5 hrs from the site). Wonderful house and very friendly and knowledgeable guides and great little tea room. Well worth the trip. Unfortunately there was some trouble on site one night (we actually thought the noise was from some rowdy teenagers) when a male guest decided that it would be appropriate to not only smash up his accommodation (not sure if it was his own caravan or one of the glamping pods) but to batter his wife/partner in front of their children. There was much shouting and disruption and the police were called by their immediate neighbours on either side of them. Possibly drink was involved but that is just my speculation. It was (is) the poor children I feel sorry for. The next day we heard more details that were shocking. These sort of things cannot be foreseen but having read previous reviews hasn’t there been another incident like this before?
