Not suitable for extended M/H use especially if wet, you are liable to get stuck.

This review is for Buncton Manor Farm

Not suitable for extended M/H use especially if wet, you are liable to get stuck. However, friendly owner happy to give us hard standing by his barn during a rainy night. Need your own toilet/shower, the portaloo was grim during our visit. Plenty of ducks & horses around what is also a working farm so watch out for tractors, horse boxes etc.

Very basic site, toilets unclean and unfriendly owner was nowhere to be seen.

This review is for Buncton Manor Farm

Very basic site, toilets unclean and unfriendly owner was nowhere to be seen. Overpriced at �16pn. Would not go back, would not recommend. Site is extremely basic � simply a grass field with sloping edges. Way overpriced for the quality (�16pn inc EHU in summer). The toilets/shower are worse than basic, they were shocking!! They are literally festival-type single cubicles, which got full quickly and stank, as did the rudimentary chemical toilet disposal point. In fairness the owner provides hot water in one of them and anti-bacterial gel in the other, but there was ivy growing up through the floor and cobwebs in the shower! You can�t regulate the shower temperature and it becomes unusable if someone is filling up their water carrier at the same time! As previously mentioned, there are only two electric points, so you have limited choice where to pitch, and these are up a sloping edge so it did require ramps to level the �van. We received no welcome or contact from the owners throughout our stay. No polite introductions or popping over to see if we were enjoying our holiday. By the final morning we even had to resort to going up to the farmhouse to pay! In fact the general impression was unwelcoming, more rules about how to treat the site than helpful information or local attractions. The grass got really long as it was only mown once a week. Not perfectly peaceful � you can hear a constant low rumble from the A283 and the occasional Gatwick jets but these are much quieter. There is a pub and Co-Op at Ashington, a 2 mile walk away. You can't walk along the A283 but there are some back lanes to get to Ashington. Watch out when towing as the entry sign from the road is tiny and easily missed. Our children loved camping next to the horses and guinea fowl, and feeding the ducks and fish. The best thing about the site is the location. Great for exploring the Downs, and we loved Amberley Museum, but I wouldn�t want to stay at this particular site again longer than a couple of nights.

What it said on the tin As described, facilities basic but clean.

This review is for Buncton Manor Farm

What it said on the tin As described, facilities basic but clean. Large well kept field with electric hook ups and some uneven ground. Right next door to the stables and on the other side of the field are bridle paths and the m�nage so if you like horses, it's heaven. There were only facilities for recycled rubbish, none for landfill. Dogs welcome and everyone clears their leavings in the camping field, but not on the footpaths through and surrounding it. Also when removing my tiny dogs tiny poo a horse walked past and left a steaming pile that's of course, wasn't cleared, ho hum. Staying village is five minutes drive and has a large Co-op and other shopping. There are no pubs within walking distance but I recommend the Fountain at Ashurst, also five minutes drive, dogs welcome and gorgeous food.

A beautiful country retreat and escape just 10 miles out of Brighton.

This review is for Buncton Manor Farm

A beautiful country retreat and escape just 10 miles out of Brighton. Fabulous countryside and great excuse to just do nothing. I had a lovely welcome from the owner who told me all about the 12th century church just behind the field, the 2 Red Kites that had been following the farmer ploughing all day. Great news for a wildlife photographer... The setting is just gorgeous with a lovely farm pond with farm ducks and a cherry tree. It was all so pretty and the perfect escape from a busy job in Brighton without having to go too far. The field is really large but slightly restricted with the main electric point just being at the top. This didn't really matter, 4 units fitted alongside each other without being on top of each other. The other was a tent not needing electric so it didn't matter. There is another electric point alongside the barn so a couple more units could easily go there. It was very relaxed and laid back. I had 2 dogs with me and one in particular was fine just to follow me to the water point and potter around without anyone having some sort of 'put your dog on a lead hernia ' the Guinea fowl that wander around are hilarious to watch, they roam everywhere and watching them run is just one of the funniest things ever. Behind the site is a large field with a wide grass edge perfect for a safe dog walk as flanked with hedges. It's a mile all the way round, so you don't really even need to go anywhere else. Chanctonbury Hill however IS just over the road and is also a lovely walk. I found a co op in nearby Ashington and who needs more than a co op when touring. There was also a lovely looking village pub The Red Lion but I didn't get to try this out. Pub and co op only 5 min drive away. The only problem I may have had is that I don't have a 4 wheel drive and may have struggled backing the caravan up the slope to sit at the top of the field but I could also have just pulled it straight on parallel to the hedge, so only my problem really but may be useful if anyone else doesn't have a 4 wheel drive.... I can't wait to go back.
