Booked as a sun holiday, we tried to book our usual Haven Pagham but only this one available for the dates we wanted. Its sandwiched in-between a large Sainsbury and Tesco which is a little strange, I am sure the caravan site was there first though! But once inside the site, depending on where your caravan is, you wouldn't notice that is in an industrial area. First impressions were it looks outdated and a bit run down. The two security lads on reception were very friendly and helpful, took a couple of mins to get the key. The caravan was very clean, and nice little touches like, washing up liquid, cleaning spray, tea, coffee, shampoo and shower gel (allot of parks don't provide these and you have to take your own). Food and drink in the club house was reasonably priced and not bad. Entertainment was ok, the kids enjoyed it, and they didn’t think much of the arcades, which was handy for us as they spent less! It’s a bit rough and ready. Only 10 mins drive from Bognor Beach, had fantastic weather which I think helped.
The only thing I can really criticize was the sour faced women on reception when we checked out. Once she managed to tear herself away from whatever was more interesting than serving a customer, she took the key, no thank you, did you have a nice time? Nothing, just a sour faced look as if I had inconvenienced her. Apart from that it was good. Would I return, probably not unless I got a good deal.
