“Great for groups”
Reviewed 10 June 2010

Billycan Camping is a private campsite a few minutes drive from Arundel in West Sussex. It is "boutique camping" meaning that much of the hard work is already done for you. They supply tents (large, canvas tents already erected), air beds (already inflated), a large lounge-tent with armchairs and tables and a well-stocked campers kitchen with a hamper of food.

It is luxury camping, designed for those who don't own their own camping gear or don't have the time to organise a full-on camping trip.

I recently stayed there with a group of 14 women for a friend's Hen Party. It was terrific and suited us perfectly. We got the benefits of camping (being outside, lots of space, having a bonfire, looking at the stars) without the hassle of too much organising. It is obviously more expensive than 'normal' camping but cheaper than booking hotels or going to a festival.

The toilet block is very 'civilised' although showering is a bit of an adventure. There is no electricity whatsoever, so be prepared.

The women who run the site are helpful and friendly. They settled us in, they left us to our own devices which was perfect.

It is walking distance to Arundel, but certainly much more convenient if you have a car as you'd be a little bit stranded otherwise.

I imagine this would be perfect for a large extended family, or for several families holidaying together. Also could be good for a high-school group or a group of 30-somethings like ourselves.
