"Steal away to an orchard by the south coast in the country's newest National Park. "
An orchard in Slindon Park is home to our lovely campsite - part of 3,500 acres of land owned by the National Trust and at the heart of the South Downs National Park. It is a haven for wildlife and has beautiful views across the coastal plain of West Sussex.
Please note that this site has no toilet or showers, so you will need suitable facilities in your unit.

This was our second stay at this site in a year, it is a wonderful site, very quiet and very well kept. It is perfect for those wishing to get away from it all. There are no showers or toilets which is fine for us with our own in the caravan. Alan and Rose are very helpful and knowledgeable, and always make you feel welcome. Lovely secluded level site, already booking our next visit.

I am a novice caravanner and I tow a BIG van. The Warden has been a great help in helping me to set up. When my electrics failed, he was there to offer advice and help. When I struggled to get the van in through the slippery entrance, he was there to help yet again
While the site is more suited to older couples my two young teenagers love the site and always get a warm welcome from the Wardens.
If there is something out of the ordinary I am asking about both Wardens will usually come back to me the same day or the day after with some helpful advice .
Not only have they made my family welcome they have been great mentors in the hobby of caravanning. It really is "The friendly Club"

This was our first stay on a CCC site, joined by my parents with their outfit we were pitched up together and spent 4 nights in a pretty orchard setting, there is electric hook up, Fresh water points and Chemical disposal facility, a small shop for the essentials.
the wardens were really friendly and helpful. Would definitely return for weekend breaks.

What a wonderful peaceful site, with a friendly welcome on arrival. An ideal site for long country walks and relaxing in the unspoilt surroundings. Cannot wait to return again

Members may wish to note that a community shop and cafe opened in the village late last year. (The venture is owned and run by the villagers) and is located in the historic old village forge (next to the village hall at the other end of the village from the site).
The Forge offers a wide range of eveyday essentials, fresh produce (inlcuding meat) and the cafe serves light lunches, teas etc. More details at www.slindonforge.co.uk

Far too regimental for us, and certainly not in an orchard, pitches are very close to one another, and definitely one for the over 65's.
Immaculately presented, but very crammed in.
Not a great experience for 3 days.
The area is beautiful, and walking up on the downs was great.
But I will look for a more friendly site with a bit more room next time we visit this area.

A really lovely site, very natural and unspoilt with great woodland areas great for dog walking - the bluebells and other wildlife are wonderful - walk quietly and in the early morning or evening you will see plenty, including deer if you are lucky! Rose and Alan are very efficient and friendly - go out of their way to make sure you are happy and if any problems do occur they are ready to help (my car broke down twice and Alan was on hand straight away. Recommend the site to anyone who wants a peaceful and relaxing break with plenty to do nearby. Visit the Bakery and Pottery - don't miss the pumpkins in September!! Barnham good for shopping and try the Indian Restaurant (excellent). Arundel nice for a day out. We visit Slindon at least three times a year!!
DATE STAYED: June 2012
This was our first visit to this site & we found the wardens very helpful, nothing was to much trouble, this site has limited facilities (very basic)no showers or toilet block (but who needs them when you have them in your caravan) i was a bit concerned about the entrance as i have a large twin axle caravan (almost 8mtrs), looking at the netrance on google it looked a bit awkward with overhanging trees, but upon arrival i found it no trouble to get into, the only downside was the weather, but who can arrange sunshine all the time, the site did get a bit waterlogged, some caravanners had a bit of trouble getting off site,we tow with a 4x4 so had no trouble getting away,not all pitches are flat, some have a gentle slope, so level ramps/chocks may be requiree on some pitches, the wild life on site is great, site is very ideal for walkers, (which i am not,as i am disabled)but the peace & tranquility were great so no doubt we will return sometime & hopes the weather is a lot better

stayed over easter,site was almost full,but did not seem crowded.alan and rose made us most welcome.first time we have used a site with no shower block,or toilets.walks round the site lovely,so quiet at night,just the sound of the wildlife.only problem was the entrance off main road,first few feet tarmac, but then large stones. had problem getting grip, as front wheel drive ,and had wheel spin, and smell of clutch. at the third attempt i managed to get grip on side grass.shame they did not tarmac up to the first bend.has not put us off, going back in june. hope grass side not turned to mud.
What a wonderful site! So peaceful and secluded...Our 2 kids loved it.
We have a couple of dogs too and so we had daily exploits into the woodland surrounding the site. Its quite popular with locals and so it was good that our pups are friendly but the dog waling was superb.
Make sure you print and follow the towing directions to this site!!! Narrow lanes and big tractors caused us some excitement!

If you love peace and quiet as we do this is a gem of a site. Minimum facilities just water and chemical disposal point. No hardstandings which we thought could be a problem but, despite some heavy rain, proved to be no problem at all. The dog walking facilities both on and off site got the paws up sign from our collie. We're quite into electronic gatgets and can report that both our mobile phones, orange and vodaphone, worked also our vodaphone dongle so we did not use the site wifi. Surprisingly, as the site is surrounded by trees our satellite T.V worked well. The site approach from the road can be challenging in the wet, but don't let that deter you just be aware. Only negative comments are the chemical disposal point could do with a bit of an update and the Camping and Caravan Club signs on the approach roads are rather small and inadequate, but I suspect this is because it's owned by the National Trust. We were there for 6 nights and I'm sure we will be back as there is a lot to do in the area.

We stayed for a lovely sunny week in July. We found it to be peaceful sheltered and ideal for our needs. Its basically a big CS, has a laid back atmosphere and is very good value. If you can cope with no facilities its ideal. Plenty of country walks and woodland straight off the site and yet 30 mins by car gets you to Bognor Regis, Littlehampton or Chichester.There is interesting coastline and beaches at Wittering, the Weald and Downland museum proved to be an interesting day as was Bosham harbour. Wish we could have stayed longer !

We stayed here over the really hot Easter weekend and it was lovely. It was sheltered and quiet. You need your own sanitation/shower etc but there are a few electric hookups if you are lucky enough to get one. If you like peace and quiet and enjoy walking, this is the place to come.Lots of walks accessible from the site, so no need to use your car/van. I would class this site as an adult one, which I like, as there are no facilities for children. You can walk to a Shell garage on the A27 for milk etc which takes approx 25 mins and there is also a boot sale on a Sunday morning at Fontwell race course which again is approx a half hour walk. I have been here a few times and would come back again.

Visited this site for the first time in 2009 for our bi-annual visit to the Festival of Speed at Goodwood. Perfect for location. Found site manager extremely kind and helpful. Going to book again this year. Many more local attractions to see.
DATE STAYED: July 2009
Our second visit this year, Site managed by Trevor (everything you expect from a C & CC Manager, kind, courteous, helpful, forever doing his 'rounds' making sure that everyone was comfortable etc)
The site is set amongst National Trust woodland, with miles & miles of good walks - See Trevor in the shop - he has put together a small guide of local walks for a nominal fee towards the 'bird food fund' - The small shop sells the usual bits & pieces - all reasonably priced too - especially the ice lollies (according to daughter who never let a day go by without one!)
Own San essential - just the drinking water tap & CDP - what more do you need?
We spent a lovely week here in April and that prompted us to spending a second week in August - We'll be back again in April 2011!
Arundel Castle - well worth a visit, beautiful walks around the castle too!
North Weald & Downland Open Air Museum -An absolute must - dogs allowed (bonus)
Near the coast (a number of beaches are just a short drive away)
Note: Some people may mark the Site down on facilities - I felt that this would be undeserved as everywhere is well tended and clean and the site is advertised as no toilets/showers etc so have marked based on facilities as advertised.
Also worth noting is that on both booking occasions we received a telephone call from Trevor - He was making sure that we were definitely aware of the 'Own San' situation - a courtesy call that I would not have expected, there's dedication!
