This review is for Graffham

The Graffham campsite is in a thick forest and there is a 200yd single rutted, pot-holed track that leads to the entrance to the campsite where there is a solid piece of road outside the office. The rest of the site has all single tracks, mostly rutted. We have been caravanning over 30 yrs, all over France & England & that was the worst pitch we have ever been on � it was very small � not room for our sun canopy � not that we needed it in the shade. We felt we could not ask to be moved as our caravan mover was playing up � other campers helped us hitch up after our 9 night stay. There is a lovely walk into the village. There is a shower block which is at the top of the site � we were down the bottom� The Wardens are very friendly & helpful but do not make up for the site. Very disappointing.

Nice clean site, Petworth House well worth a visit.

This review is for Graffham

Nice clean site, Petworth House well worth a visit. Access road to site a bit of a nightmare, surely a few quid spent on some gravel would be an investment. Potholes are quite large and such a nuisance as to make me now think twice before returning, not wishing to risk my unit and vehicle again. Otherwise, a pleasant site in a lovely area.

we arrived just before hurricane Bertha did and were shown to our pitch.

This review is for Graffham

we arrived just before hurricane Bertha did and were shown to our pitch. It was a pitch area triangular in shape with 3 sites which made it feel very crowded. The rest of the site seemed to have far more privacy and seclusion and after asking the following morning to move we were given a lovely pitch with both privacy and seclusion. We were visiting the chilli fest which turned out to be about 25 mins away. Other than facilities there is little to do but relax. It was a peaceful site . The pub was a mile or two away and so was the shop. The wardens were very helpful and accommodating. Their hut/reception was open for limited hours with some supplies.The barrier is on a PIN which changes weekly and closes and locks at 11pm. There is a fish and chip van that visits on a friday. would def recommend and re visit but would ask to have a site with space before a came. Pitch 45 was great. wash rooms were clean and warm and never appeared too busy. Fresh water at the entry barrier and toilet points. with the tall trees you did not catch too much of early morn sun and evening sun.

This is a great site as you feel like you are in the middle of a forest.

This review is for Graffham

This is a great site as you feel like you are in the middle of a forest. The pitches are large and spread out so you are never on top of anyone. Great area for walking the dog and the kids had lots of fun in the trees with the rope swing. Such a shame that you cannot have charcoal BBQ's this would have made our stay perfect but we will definitely return.
