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.

What a find.

Really loved this site. For us with dog we could not have asked for more. The wardens are really lovely welcoming and helpful. The pitches are big and the facilities ( no showers or toilets ) are great. You walk out of the back gate straight onto the Downs Link with 90 miles of great walking to choose from. Its lovely and quiet at the weekends. We arrived late on a Friday afternoon and had about an hour of noise from the neighbouring factory loading bay but come 5pm all was quiet. We wont make it back before it closes this year but without doubt I can foresee more than one visit here next year.

What a quiet gem!

We stayed for three nights last week and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of the site. It has only 33 pitches, no toilet/shower block and is run by volunteers. We had a lovely warm welcome. Our pitch was handy for the facilities, ie the water, waste and rubbish bins. That area was clean and very well kept. The village is only a 10 minute walk away and there is a shop (under new management) and a pub, The Red Lyon which has a beer garden round the back. Children and dogs are welcome. The main draw for us to this site was its proximity to the cycle trail which was right next to the site and is an old railway line covering the route from the South downs to the Notrth downs. There is also a regular bus service from the stops at the end of the approach road to the site and they provided a means of going to Horsham and Guildford. I mentioned before that the site is run by volunteers from the club. They keep the site immaculate and obviously love their job as they were so friendly and informative. All in all a great site and one that we shall return to.

Lovely site, great volunteer wardens

This is a lovely, quiet site in a picturesque corner of Sussex. If you are looking for a bit of peace and quiet, this is the place to go and at a fraction of the cost of sites like Sheepcote Valley (Brighton). The Downslink footpath/cycleway is right next to the site so plenty of walking available. A couple of miles up the track is Rudgwick where you will find the Milk Churn cafe and Firebird Brewery, both highly recommended. We also visited Amberley Museum about half an hour drive away, and Leith Hill which is the highest point in SE England and supposedly you can see 14 counties on a clear day. Finally, a word of praise for the excellent work done by the wardens who are all volunteers on this site so we all owe them our gratitude for keeping this wonderful site going.

Lovely location

Located close to the village of Slinfold which is well worth walking to if only for the local pub. Or you could cycle along the Downs Link to a great little cafe called the Churn which also makes its own cheese, cross from the cafe to the small industrial site (don't be put off by this) to find the Firebird Brewery which will extend a very friendly welcome. Here you ca tase the craft beers and take some home. What a lovely clean site, in a great location for walking and cycling. It's quite a narrow site but there is still plenty of room between pitches. Very friendly and helpful wardens.

Why book a no facilities site and then moan?

I noticed a moan about this site having no facilities! That's one of the reasons I book these little sites. The approach road has a couple of slight holes in too but no worse than the potholes all over the country. I enjoyed my stay the wardens were great and its a good site for dog owners. It would be good if some dogs we're kept a bit quieter though. I have three and they barked once! They all bark at home but they know better when camping, they get put in the van with the blinds drawn so they dont see anything to bark at! QED. Nice walks on the old railway line that runs past the site. It is a very pretty part of the country and lots of interesting places to visit. I went to the wonderful Smokery in Edburton under the downs for some very good smoked produce.
