The Barn Caravan Park: Overview of the pitches

General

  • Peaceful site seven miles from Brighton and half a mile from trains
  • Carefully maintained to avoid overcrowding
  • Barbecues, picnic tables and play area

Like Topsy, it just growed…The Barn Caravan Park at Lancing, West Sussex opened in 2003 and has been growing and welcoming guests ever since.

Fret not though if big sites aren’t your thing: this is a peaceful medium-sized site and is carefully maintained by owner Joe to avoid overcrowding even in busy periods. Hide yourself away here or take a trip to Brighton about seven miles away; several West Sussex beaches are even closer to hand.

Pitches are on grass and come with access to The Barn’s five toilets, baby changing, showers with lashings of free hot water, and a cold water beach-type shower for outdoor suds. There are picnic tables for guests to use, and a good play area with full-sized football goal, swings, ball game area and a climbing tower slide.

For getting off site, buses and trains are within a mile; Lancing train station, with a supermarket outside, is about half a mile away. Eating out can be done in style at the smart Art Deco restaurant at Shoreham Airport, a mile away from the site.

A good site that I would use again if visiting the area.23/05/2022

  • Liked: 

    Very friendly welcome on arrival and clear directions to the pitch. The pitch was level and the grass was neatly cut. The pitch was spacious enough and backed onto a fence and fields with ponies in.
    Showers were fine but could have benefited from either a stool or more hooks to hang your clothes on but this is being really picky. This is a lovely site and the elsan disposal point etc is all easy and clean.

    This is a really well run, spotlessly clean site in a great location with excellent facilities. It was especially good for us with 2 ten-year olds - children played on the playground/were playing football/cricket in the centre of the site throughout our stay with campers camped around the edges. It's a small to medium sized site and felt extremely safe. There's also a cafe which my coffee-addicted husband and slushy-crazy kids loved. It's a short walk to the beach in one direction and the shops/takeaways in the other. If you like planes, it seems to be very close to the end of the runway of the nearby (small) airport - so great for plane spotting. The owner was very friendly and helpful when our dog was injured - recommending a local vet and pointing us in the direction of fish and chips on request. We will certainly return.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike - but a potential suggesttion - only that we weren't sure if there was wifi or not (had we had our teenager with us, she'd have sussed this out within minutes). If there is - maybe a sign up somewhere with the code would be helpful. Our own fault for forgetting to ask about it.

    Lovely small site with a friendly and helpful owner. Pitches were spacious and level, nice big grass area with playground for children. Toilets and showers were modern, clean and warm. We liked that wherever you pitched you overlooked the children's play area so they could be watched at all times. There is also a little shop for drinks and snacks and outdoor seating. 5 min walk from the beach! We will return!

Local attractions

Beaches, beaches, beaches… the nearest beach, South Lancing, is within a short walk, with the beaches of Worthing and Shoreham-by-Sea each two miles’ walk from here. Or head west along the coast to the flumes of Littlehampton’s Harbour Park or to the bountiful resort of Bognor Regis.

The town of Lancing is less than a mile away from The Barn with a nature reserve, Lancing Ring, to its north and restaurants and shops at which to fill your boots and empty your wallet. Worthing is also well worth a look as one of the biggest towns in the area – and the former home of Oscar Wilde and Harold Pinter for those who like their literature.

There are a couple of hundred listed buildings in the town to make your way around as well as the biggest museum in West Sussex, an undercover shopping centre and, er, a haunted oak tree. Along the coast to the west there’s cracking Chichester with its Norman cathedral, festivals and shops; Fishbourne Roman Palace, the biggest Roman home in Britain, is just outside the city.

Going inland, nature lovers, sightseers and adrenaline seekers will find heaps of things to do: the market town of Horsham and its birds of prey centre; horse-riding, hiking and historical artefacts in the South Downs National Park; the RSPB reserve of Pulborough Brooks and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust wildlife haven Arundel overlooked by Arundel Castle.

Sprogs have plenty of choice too: take them along to West Sussex’s farm parks and play centres, to Chichester for mountain boarding (not biking) or for a puff on the South Downs Light Railway.

Must see

  • Hove Museum & Art Gallery (5.6 miles)
  • Preston Manor (7.1 miles)
  • Brighton Fishing Museum (7.3 miles)

  • Monk's House (14.2 miles)
