Arundel is a historic town nestled below the rolling hills of the South Downs with the river Arun running through it.
Arundel Castle, which dates back to 1067, is quite a sight as it sits above the town. The castle and its grounds are open to visitors.
The town has many more attractions including Arundel Cathedral, Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, Arundel Park and Swanbourne Lake which are all worth a visit.
With plenty of quaint tea shops, pubs and restaurants there is something for everyone.
The Farm has been family run for the past 80 years, situated between Arundel and the sea.
The farm is mainly arable with a beef herd to graze the pastures.
The South Downs
An area of outstanding natural beauty with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Perfect for the more energetic, with walking, mountain biking and horse riding readily available.
The Sussex coastline provides many beaches. Nearby Climping and Littlehampton are only a 5 minute drive from the campsite. A little further away (15 miles) are the Witterings. West Wittering has a white sandy beach with a lovely walk around the headland and up to the Chichester Harbour inlet.
