General

  • Peaceful site seven miles from Brighton and half a mile from trains
  • Carefully maintained to avoid overcrowding
  • Picnic tables on site, plus play area with full-sized football goal

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.

    We love it here, small quiet site with clean toilets and hot showers. Close to beach (17 min walk) and The Perch cafe. Shoreham is also wonderful and the Tom Foolery cafe is great there.

    Very nice friendly site, nothing was too much trouble for the owner who was always available. We moved twice during our stay which was no problem as the site wasn’t full and the owner didn’t mind a bit.
    The location is ideally situated as its only a short walk to the bus stop and train station with connections to Brighton (£5.20 return) Worthing, Portsmouth and London. Although we didn’t go it was also a short walk to the beach.
    BBQ’s are allowed and Asda is next time the train station so handy to stock up on the way back from a day out.
    We didn’t use the facilities out of choice but toilets and showers were available if needed, unlike a lot of other sites at present due to COVID.

Good site, tucked away, well spaced level pitches.10/08/2020

  • Liked: 

    Clean spacious site. Clean and tidy facilities that are periodically cleaned.
    Tucked away but close enough for walking to the beach.
    Staff are friendly and very accommodating. Owner makes a point of talking to all guests.
    My second visit and the grass pitches I have used are level.

    During my last stay there were strong winds and a lot of rain. The pitches I used were boarded by trees which reduced the effects of the wind. Even though the pitches were grass there was no problem with flooding despite the rain.

    I would recommend the site to anyone who wants a quiet peaceful site.
    I used the site for work purposes and will be using it again in the future.

    Friendly atmosphere, clean facilities, well spaced pitches, level pitches.
    Due to covid-19 pandemic decided to use caravan and stay here rather than book a hotel for work. Ideal place to avoid pandemic. Will be in same area for work again in two weeks, hoping to use this site again.

    Disliked: 

    No real dislikes but electrics tripped every so often - three or four times over whole stay.

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.
