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.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

There are no hot washing-up facilities.

Good position.Disinterested owner.Facilities dirty & poorly serviced. 17/10/2017

  • Non-electric grass motorhome pitch

  • Liked: 

    Position. Bus service brilliant. Bus stop is 10 minutes from campsite and buses run every 10 minutes (20 minutes on Sundays). Also bike routes along seashore.

    Disliked: 

    Almost everything. Owner briefly pointed us in direction of campsite entrance and that was last we saw of him. Little evidence of cleaning or replenishing the toilet block. Wet grass cuttings were a real problem, and contributed greatly to the general feeling of lack of effort and care. Suggest owner invests in a grass catcher for his mower. Even decent door mats would help.

    Great little spot to get away from the city, in a huge open paddock next to a horse farm. Facilities are well maintained and showers are hot- just what you need after a night camping in October. Owner is really friendly and made us feel welcome.

    Just came back from a great weekend in Brighton. The Barn provided a great location to travel in by train and the site itself was quiet, clean and well attended. Great that we could arrive slightly later than most sites would usually allow. Thanks for helping make our stay and first time in Brighton so enjoyable, definately be back again.

Good site 27/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Paul C. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch (two man)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Quiet site on edge of Lancing with all the facilities I needed - basically a toilet and hot showers. Not spectacular scenery as wedged just behind an area of housing, but convenient for my stay as close to sea and to station and buses. Friendly reception.

    Don' think there was wifi but didn't actually check.

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.

Must see

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

National Trust

  • Monk's House (14.2 miles)
