Welcome

Our long awaited new Amenity Block is now open. The block features plenty of showers, toilets, washbasins, washing up sinks and even hairdryers and underfloor heating. There is also a larger reception area with a campsite shop stocking a wide range of groceries, cold drinks, ice creams and general camping supplies. For full details see our site facilities page.

Stubcroft Campsite is situated on an environmentally friendly working sheep farm close to sandy beaches, Chichester Harbour and the South Downs. The peaceful private lanes and grounds surrounding the farm make it an ideal holiday for families and couples wishing to escape the pressures of modern life.

Stubcroft is uniquely situated in an area known since medieval times as "God's Pocket" for its warm, sunny location and sandy beaches. It is in the lee of the Isle of Wight, which provides a mild, dry local microclimate with one of the highest average sunshine hours on the UK mainland. Often the weather passes over us and is frequently much better than forecasted
for elsewhere in the UK. It is not unusual to be dry & sunny here even when raining in London, the home counties or even either side in Portsmouth or Brighton. Our site is well drained, sheltered by attractive hedges and has a friendly atmosphere making it an ideal camping location.

The farm is a sustainable, environmentally friendly family farm and the campsite is run in keeping with that ethos. The site is set in a level paddock nearby. The camping field has been planted with new wildlife conservation hedges and trees planted to provide more shelter and privacy. There is a wealth of wildlife on the farm with over 72 species of birds identified; deer, hedgehogs, foxes, rabbits, rare butterflies and much more.

Near the campsite are some of the best sandy beaches on the South Coast.  Bracklesham Bay is a long curving sandy bay that runs from Selsey Bill in the East to the famous sand dunes at West Wittering that forms the entrance to Chichester Harbour in the West.  Bracklesham Bay and East Wittering with their villages, cafes, restaurants & beaches are within walking distance from the campsite.  You can explore the quiet lanes of Chichester Harbour, the Salterns Way cycle path, discover West Wittering beaches & sand dunes of East Head, ride along the Canal towpath to Chichester or across the “Itchy Bosom” ferry from Itchenor to the picturesque village of Bosham.

If you want a change from the beaches & harbour, the attractive & historic city of Chichester provides good shopping and a wide range of places to eat set against the rolling backdrop of the South Downs National Park. Within a 20-30 minute car drive lie some of the South’s best attractions & days out including Arundel Castle, Fishbourne Roman Palace, The Weald & Downland Open Air Museum,  Portsmouth Historic Docks & HMS Victory, Tangmere Aviation Museum,  Amberley Working Museum, National Trust properties at Uppark & Petworth house and much more. Please see our “Local attractions page” for more details.
