General

  • Peaceful site seven miles from Brighton
  • 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 brick barbecues and 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, there are buses and trains within a mile; Lancing train station, with a supermarket outside, is about half a mile away.

Please note

Bookings must not be for more than 14 consecutive nights.

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

Excellent, clean, we'll run site perfect for families and couples 5* 17/08/2017

    We've just left this site after a three night stay and really did not want to leave. It's such a great site for families and couple alike.

    We travelled with two young boys 8 & 4 and loved the fact that the owner has not packed the field out with pitches and has left a kids playing area and football nets in the middle. As parents this means that no matter where you are pitched you can always keep an eye on the kids.

    Even though it is family friendly it is not overrun by children and those that are there are well behaved and in by 9pm.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the different people of different nationalities that we at the site and when you make the effort to chat with your neighbours hear some great stories and meet wonderful people.

    The owner was always on hand to listen and sort any issues (not that there were any). The facilities were clean and the showers were always warm and available.

    This is a great location and it gives you the ability to walk to the beach only a 10 minute walk away.
    We would definitely return as it makes a great base to visit the West Sussex and Brighton area.

    The cost of £25 per night is very, very reasonable and there are other sites in worse locations asking for much more.

    Couldn't fault it, would definitely recommend.

Great site for families. 16/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jessica M. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Huge open field with marked pitches. The owner mixes motorhomes with caravans and tents which makes for an informal field. Good ablutions block, two showers and two toilets.
    Friendly owner.

    Disliked: 

    It's good for families as there's a playground in the centre. However, we're not a family!
    £20 for a pitch with no hookup, however, it is the height of summer so shouldn't complain.

Peaceful site, spacious pitches, friendly owner 11/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The campsite is really peaceful with good sized , well spaced pitches, so you didn't ever feel on top of your neighbours. The showers and toilets were always clean with plenty of hot water and lots of electric sockets in the shower room.There was also music in the shower block, along with a freezer for your ice blocks. Although there was only 2 showers in the ladies, I only waited a couple of minutes on one day out of the 4 we stayed on the site. The site is great for visiting the local area, the railway station is a 15 min walk from the campsite and just £4.90 return to Brighton.
    The owner was really friendly and checked on a regular basis to ensure everything was ok. Free wifi and very reasonable site fees, would have no hesitation in returning

    Disliked: 

    No hot water for washing your dishes and only 1 drainer for 2 sinks.

Lovely site with lots of open space, nice owner and good facilities. 07/08/2017

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The campsite was great with plenty of space for my young child to run around and play and a little swing area. The facilities were clean and good showers with no shortage of hot water. It's a lovely peaceful site with horses all around.

    Disliked: 

    We had to leave a day early not through any fault of the owners due to the weather as 40 mph winds didn't fair too well with many of the tents and cooking outside was not an option in the winds and rain as it is an open area. But this is no fault of the campsite just the English weather.

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, officially declared Britain’s sunniest seaside resort in 2011.

Going east? Brighton probably doesn’t need an introduction, but if you’re looking for recommendations on what to do there, George IV’s Royal Pavilion, Sea Life Brighton or shopping/eating out around The Lanes are good places to start.

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.

Portsmouth is around an hour’s drive away for days’ worth of activities and attractions like the award-winning aquarium or a trip around Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to see old ships including the Mary Rose; for a true day trip, hop on the ferry to the Isle of Wight or France.

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.
