General

  • Family-friendly site five minutes’ drive from the South Downs
  • Beaches, horse racing and stunning country houses within 10 minutes
  • A 15-minute drive from Chichester cathedral city

Can’t decide whether you want to spend your hols among lush hills and dales or splashing around south-coast beaches? You’re in luck: at Prince of Wales, a family-friendly site in the village of Woodgate, 15 minutes’ drive from the West Sussex cathedral city of Chichester, you can have the lot.

This small site in the grounds of a traditional country pub is nearly midway between the South Downs and the southern coast, placing you about five minutes from the edge of the national park for scenic hiking, biking and riding routes, and 10 minutes from sand and sea.

Equestrian types will definitely want to canter in this direction too: the site is well placed for track days at Fontwell Park and Goodwood (both within 10 minutes) and, if you’re as comfortable riding as you are watching, you might want to trot over to Hunters Lodge Riding Centre (15 minutes) for a day on horseback.

No doubt that’ll work up an appetite, which is where the benefits of staying on a pub site come into play: the restaurant a few moments’ stroll away so nab a table for some home-cooked food, then wander into the bar for a game of pool or darts. This is a dog-friendly pub, so feel free to bring Rex along – the owners reckon your best friend needs some hols too.

If you’d rather steer clear of other people for an evening, you can fire up the barbecue back at home base and pile it high with goodies from the shop a 10-minute walk down the road.

Fine for a brief stop over, but lacking facilities 10/09/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Anonymous Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Easy to find and campsite very close proximity to the pub.

    Disliked: 

    Ideally could be better served by a dedicated toilet/shower facility within the campsite, instead of having to use the pub toilets.

    Unfortunately, food service wasn't available in the pub when we arrived on the Friday evening and so we cannot comment on the quality of the food. We were hungry after travelling, so this was a little disappointing.

    Prices had been inflated for a stay at the campsite on the weekend we visited. We assume this was connected to the Goodwood Revival Festival.

    Be aware there is a railway line which runs alongside the campsite so noise could be an issue for some.

    It was close to where we needed to be.

    Grass wasn’t cut so very long. It’s essentially just an unmanaged field with facilities inside the pub.
    It is right next to a very busy Trainline

    Price was great, location was ideal for us as we were visiting family and just needed somewhere to stay for a couple of nights and didn't need any facilities.

    Disliked: 

    The Grass could do with cutting as it was very long but not a problem.

    There was train noise but we knew in advance and so didn't bother us.

    The pub was 'no frills' but very welcoming. There was a good amount of space to camp. The evening food was very good - we especially liked the Tuesday burger deal.

Local attractions

Early on in your stay, you’re going to want to make tracks for the Goodwood Estate, whether you’re a fan of the gee-gees or not – there’s plenty here for all tastes, including tours and afternoon tea in the house, fab gardens, a couple of golf courses, a motoring track (time your stay for the Festival of Speed or the Goodwood Revival), and airborne trips from the aerodrome.

Goodwood isn’t the only old stately pile in the area, so anyone with a penchant for landed estates and glamorous history should glide to Arundel, Uppark, Parham and Petworth for house tours and turns through the gardens. Like your history a little less grand? History buffs are well served nearby and trips to the Bignor Roman Villa and Fishburne Roman Palace come highly recommended.

For kids tiring of traipsing through the past, give them one last chance to learn something at the Weald and Downland Living Museum – an open-air museum covering 1,000 years of history – before heading to Bognor Regis for miniature golf, a miniature railway and a boating lake.

Must see

  • Goodwood House (4.2 miles)
  • Chichester Cathedral (4.9 miles)
