Overview

  • Campsites next to or within walking distance of a beach

    Top site for beaches

Explore the beauty of England's south coast from our campsite.

With cycling and walking trails in abundance, miles of sandy beaches, bustling towns, pretty chocolate box villages and a host of family attractions within a short distance our Chichester Club Campsite offers something for everyone.

Chichester is a small, welcoming campsite. Once an orchard it has a relaxing ambience and is an ideal setting for kicking back and relaxing after a hectic day exploring the area.

Head across the road on foot or two wheels to enjoy the paths to the coast and Chichester harbour. Or catch a bus from outside the site to Chichester (great for shopping), Bognor, Littlehampton and Brighton in one direction and Southampton and Portsmouth (with the Spinnaker Tower, Gunwharf Keys and the Historic Dockyard) in the other.

For a bucket and space day head to the Blue Flag beach at West Wittering where you’ll find sand dunes, sheltered waters and acres of space. East Head and Selsey too are great for lazy beach days.

Worth Noting

Electric security barriers in operation. Please note there is no parking for visitors and, because of the narrow entrance road, there are no overnight parking facilities.

This review is for Chichester

Whilst the site is small the facilities are very good. Bus stops outside the entrance on routes to Portsmouth and Chichester which link into other routes.Reasonably quiet although pleased we did not have a pitch near the road.Emshurst is a lovely place to visit and only 1 mile away. Thanks to the staff for looking after the site so well.

I have one or two specific problems and one or two general ones.

This review is for Chichester

I have one or two specific problems and one or two general ones. Firstly, let me reiterate as above that the standard was, as usual, excellent (that's why we use The Club) and the staff friendly and helpful. However, one campervan near us, on two evenings running, spent at least ten minutes running his engine, causing such noxious fumes that I had to retire inside our tent to escape them. If he had stayed any longer, we would have complained to the staff but fortunately he left the following day. I realise this is not the fault of the Club or the site but I would be grateful if the site could make it clear to all that such behaviour is unacceptable. The lady in the unit next to us was also affected. We also had someone on a unit close to us who had some sort of instrument; I hesitate to call it musical as, although it played notes, they were not on a scale and I am reliably informed that the only chord it could have played was b flat minor. It looked a bit like the top of a steel drum, turned upside down and to hear it being "played" three or four evenings in a row, started to wear on the nerves, to say the least. My next comments are general. Firstly, I feel that the site fees, even now I am old enough to benefit from a discount, are becoming too high. At �160 for a week and, taking into account the membership fee, we could have stayed, warm and secure, with tea and coffee provided and bathroom ensuite, at a standard low cost hotel. Don't get me wrong, I love camping but at what price? My other "niggle" is the WiFi charge. Firstly, unless you know in advance that you're going to camp for at least two weeks in any year, I think it is inordinately expensive, then only one person at a time can use it and it will drop out if you don't utilise it within a specific period of time. This can be very frustrating if you are in the middle of something and it drops out, please reconsider this fee, or provide free WiFi for all, that would be much better.

This review is for Chichester

We used the Chichester site for two nights so we could visit Portsmouth historic dockyard on our way to the Isle of Wight. The site was reasonably easy to find and was fairly busy, you enter via a key pad electric gate, we were directed to our pitch by the warden who advised us on the positioning of our unit. The sites facilities were good, the toilet and shower blocks were excellent, clean bright and tidy, the shop in the reception area stocked some basic caravan and camping equipment but bread and milk have to be brought from the farm shop opposite the entrance or the small supermarket slightly further down the road. The Travellers Joy pub nearby was OK although a little on the expensive side for standard pub grub, however the portions are huge. We went into Emsworth, the nearest town, late in the afternoon but even in mid August it was like a ghost town, and we couldn't find a coffee shop or cafe that was open to get a drink, lovely little harbour/marina area but quiet and quaint rather than a hustling and busy. I would definitely use the site again if I was travelling to France via the Portsmouth ferries or to visit Portsmouth city which is a great place for a few days if you like all things nautical. As some others have said the locking of the gates between 11pm and 7am would be an issue if you're catching the early ferries, perhaps a keypad on the site side would enable you to leave earlier if you needed to get to the port before 8am.
