Our next meet is at Dyke Farm, which is a lovely quiet site just outside Pulborough. There is a Farm Shop on site, and the entrance to the camping field is gained through the car park. There is also a well stocked lake suitable for fishing from the banks.
Access to the site is best approached via the A283 either via Pulborough or Storrington, then turn into West Chiltington Road, signposted Nutbourne. At the Dyke Farm Shop, turn right into the car park and proceed through to the camping field at the back of the car park through the gate. We would not advise going through the local villages as they can be quite tight when towing. Click Here for link to Google Maps. Postcode RH20 2EE.
Stewards are Pat & Chris. (07813 107655)
Fees are £8.50 inc VAT a unit night. (Unit = 2 Adults & their children under 18yrs) . Site opens 10am on Thursday 7th July.
We are also holding an open day for our Facebook members so if you are a member of the Facebook group, and not camped with your local DA previously, please check out the Facebook page (here) for a Special Offer.
Don’t forget you can stay as many or few nights as you wish, so even if you just want to get away for a night you can still camp DA style!
We hope to see some new faces as well as old friends.
UPDATE: Unfortunately due to ground conditions, the site owner cancelled this meet.
Partridge Green Village is home to the Dark Star Brewery, which is open on Saturdays (tours need to be pre-booked) and has a choice of pubs and a fish and chip shop if you don’t fancy cooking yourself.
The site is also adjacent to a disused railway line which is perfect for cycling in a safe and very picturesque environment, so if you can, bring your bike!
