General

  • Friendly rural site five minutes' drive from central Chichester
  • A 15-minute drive from Goodwood Estate and West Wittering beach
  • Profits from the site and café support a local independent charity

The Apuldram Centre is a small, friendly site in the grounds of a West Sussex rural daycare centre five minutes’ drive from the centre of Chichester.

Guests here won’t just get a peaceful and spacious place to stay – they’ll also get the warm glow of doing good for the world, as all proceeds from pitch fees go towards supporting the independent charity that runs this vital facility for adults with learning disabilities.

If you’d like to add a few more coins to the coffers, head into the site’s café, which serves breakfasts, lunches and a rather enticing spread of homemade cakes and bakes. Again, all profits go towards supporting the charity’s work (and you’ll get a few tasty treats into the bargain too…) For evening meals, guests are welcome to light a barbecue on site, although site staff recommend taking the 20-minute walk to the waterside Crown & Anchor pub at least once (and they’ll happily recommend other local eats too).

Days out are plentiful around here: it’s a 15-minute drive to the Goodwood Estate and West Wittering beach, or a 20-minute journey to Portsmouth. Walkers can hit the trails of the South Downs National Park just north of Chichester and cyclists can pedal along a path just next to the site.

Amenities on site include an indoor washing-up area, phone charging points within the amenity hut, and dedicated bathroom facilities including toilets, a shower room and an accessible wetroom. Wifi is available in the café/shop and the outdoor seating area just next to it.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    We stayed two nights whilst visiting the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Centre is very well cared for and the staff are warm and very welcome. We loved the facilities and bought a couple of plants.
    We are hoping to be able to visit next year again.
    Thank you to all the staff and wishing you all the best.
    Anita and Steve

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. The site is quite and peaceful in an 'out of town' location. It wasn't difficult to find though and convenient for local amenities and beauty spots. It is very kept clean and tidy and has a pretty garden to relax in. Ideal for the Festival of Speed, especially because the café served a breakfast which set us up for the day. I'd recommend it to anyone.
