Why stay here ...

Located conveniently close to the A23, the Gatwick Club Site is well suited as a stopover base for exploring the treasures of the West Sussex area. At just a half hour journey by rail from Gatwick, the caravan park is also perfect for sightseeing or shopping trips to London. With close proximity to the airport, the site is in the perfect location for keen plane spotters.

To the south of Gatwick Club Site (formerly Amberley Fields), the lovely coastal town of Brighton is within a short driving distance for all the benefits of a traditional English seaside resort. This lively town is known to have a bustling but friendly atmosphere and is famous for its vast pebble beach as well as its 1,722 ft long pier. Those keen to stock up on conveniences as fast as possible will find nearby Crawley is well located to the caravan park. Apart from the usual necessities, the town offers a fun arcade and a select variety of restaurants and shops to enjoy.

Another great stay

We have just returned from the Gatwick site, having spent a great couple of nights there. We have only been caravaning for a coupe of years but this is one of our favorite sites, we have been for many weekends here. The planes are not that noisy and don't prevent you sleeping, if you were a plane spotter you would be in heaven here. The main reason for the review is to thank the new wardens. All the previous wardens have been great and we are more than happy to deal with them and stay on their site. The current couple however are fantastic. They are always working but have time to help you if needed, they never seem to stop. The site facilities are the cleanest we have ever seen them, it is almost like being at home. That said the previous wardens also keep the site to a high standard.

Well maintained site with pleasant wardens

Stayed her for a couple of nights after returning by Dieppe/Newhaven ferry. Took less than an hour from the port and easy to find. Yes, it's a noisy site as it's only 100mtrs from Gatwick runway with flights either taking off or landing every couple of minutes from 5.30am until 11.30pm. Great for plane spotters though. The site itself is very well maintained and the toilets/showers spotless. Wardens very pleasant. Major shops & supermarkets a short drive. An ideal stopover site but wouldn't recommend for a peaceful holiday.

Best warden ever

The site, as expected of it's location is noisy. Nonetheless, it is very well maintained. Cannot praise the warden high enough. She met us and was very very friendly and welcoming. An inspiration to a lot of wardens who could learn a lot from her. She changed us from a none awning pitch prior to our arrival to a more spacious, comfortable pitch. What a gem.

Purely a short stay site

Well maintained site with decent showers. Of course we expected aircraft noise knowing the area well. However, flights until midnight and again starting at 6am on the dot take there toll on anything over a one night stopover as the site is almost parallel to the Gatwick perimeter road.

Airport stopover

I booked this site as a stopover for my son and I. He was flying from Gatwick Airport the following morning. The site is extremely convenient for this purpose. Yes, it is a bit noisy when the aircraft are taking off and landing, but this stops overnight. We were seriously delayed by hold-ups on the roads. Bless our motorway system and the M25 in particular. The warden called me on my mobile to see where we were; we were still more than fifty miles away and stuck in traffic. She was very understanding and told me to ring the bell when we arrived. I did and the wardens came to book us in and gave us a convenient pitch. I cannot praise them highly enough. They even advised me on an alternative route back up north, via the Dartford Crossing. Probably saved me a few hours and a fortune in diesel. They are a credit to the club. The site itself was immaculate. The facilities spotlessly clean. Despite the noise, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
