This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

We visited on two separate weekends during June. Once with a group and the second time on our own.
Local pub serves good food and beer.
We also found the walk in the woodland around king Alfred's tower very pleasant and on the doorstep of this site.
The fire pits are an extra bonus. The logs and marshmallow pack, purchased from the owner, made for a warm and fun late evening.
Owner was friendly and helpful with local advice.

Fantastic small and peaceful site, perfect if you like beautiful countryside and a friendly welcome.
Had to return this year, as we love this site and the surrounding area. There is one toilet and one shower hut, but as this is a small site there was never a queue for either and both were spotless. Each plot is huge and has a fire pit which is fantastic, and Jenny supplied a fire kit each night (Wood, lighter & marshmallows !) at a very reasonable price which the kids (and adults) loved. There is loads of room for the kids to play safely. If you like simple peaceful camping then this site is perfect....AND there is a really nice pub 15 minutes walk away. Highly recommended.

Loved this spacious site for its simplicity and charm. The pitches are around the edge of the field, generously spaced, overlooking the meadow and pleasant view. There were mown areas for the pitches, pathways and a lovely space for children to play in the middle. The toilet was clean and welcoming. Liked the additional of local walk maps etc. Did not use the shower as we have our own. Highly recommended.

This review is for Kingsettle Campsite
Central to a lot of attractions, quiet site with a lot of potential. Jenny the Manager/owner has plans, which when realised will result in a very desirable place to stay. Voucher idea, 'bogof', once you have stayed there, brilliant! Hope to use ours before end of year.
