No public transport near the site.

This review is for Graffham

No public transport near the site. You can request a bus one or two days in advance, and no taxi's in the area so very secluded. The walk by road to Petsworth is on a very dangerous and fast road, so do yourselves a favour and purchase a book of walks from the site office for 50pence and don't get injured or killed.

We arrived and was told where to pitch our tent.This we did,trying to avoid the slope.Tent up with inner tent stove cupboards etc inside the guy then wanders round and said we were 3 foot too close to a caravan next door and we would have to move it all.He then made us turn it round so the footprint of the tent was on the grass and in front of the tent was a large expanse of dirt.Also on the slope so everything was sliding about.needless to say not happy.However we made do.On tuesday evening dinner on doulble ring hotplate electric tripped out,saw the guy whosaid he was sighting a van but would be round.Didnt want to worry them so waited.Another guy came next morning as it had been forgotten,not 3ven a cuppa all evening let alone dinner.To finish it off we had a big storm and torrential rain on friday and all the dirt had turned to mud and filled our awning.Couldnt understand why on a big site there only 3 female showers,but again geared to people with their own facilities.

A tucked away simple site with woodland glades to pitch in.

This review is for Graffham

A tucked away simple site with woodland glades to pitch in. The staff were lovely, welcoming and very helpful after a long drive. Don't expect site wide wifi, tree cover is too dense. Lovely position for visiting Chichester, Petworth and Arundel which we did. Quiet and peaceful at night but take some repellent for the Sussex Midges!

Welcoming staff make the relaxed atmosphere even more enjoyable.

This review is for Graffham

Welcoming staff make the relaxed atmosphere even more enjoyable. The Lavington plantation on the edge of the site is a joy to wander through. The site office offers some essentials but local Village shop stocks a good variety of the usual weekly needs for any family...including meats, veg bread, sweets, frozen and local fresh produce, papers, wines, spirits etc all at reasonable prices. There is also an excellent farm shop on the road back up to Petworth and if you are National Trust members then Petworth House and grounds is well worth a visit. A great and safe site for children, parents and grandparents to enjoy the family life so often lost in the fast moving world. We shall go again as soon as possible!
