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.

There are no hot washing-up facilities.

Everything excellent. Well-maintained and clean. We'll be back. 20/07/2017

    Very welcoming. Nice flat tidy site with pitches clearly marked, plenty of electric hook-ups, lighting for when it's dark, water tap near our pitch. Clean toilets that actually flushed properly, plenty of loo roll, clean showers and washbasins, full soap dispenser over washbasins, very efficient hand dryers. Accessible freezer for ice packs. Washing up sinks if needed. Lots of picnic tables and benches. Good play area with full size netted football goal in centre so can be seen from every pitch. Sensible policy on dogs. Horses in neighbouring field and small aircraft taking off from local airport gave us something different to watch. No pressure to leave site after we had moved off our pitch. And all so close to Brighton. We'd have happily stayed for the whole summer if we could!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at all.

  • Liked: 

    The campsite had a fantastic location, waking up to picturesque green landscape and only 5 minute walk to Lancing beach. Lancing beach being the best in that area. Also of you wish to take bikes, again you are only 5 mintutes from the coastal route which will take you directly into Brighton without touching the road. Excellent facilities and cleaned everyday, So pleasant everytime I went in. Joe (the owner) is very personalble and helpful. Storm hit one day when I was out and he saved my bell tent which was about to take off, kindly bringing it back down to earth and amending the guy ropes. He also very kindly sought out and returned a jumper of mine which I left at the campsite.

    Disliked: 

    I have no dislikes of my stay or campsite

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.
