Camping (including campsite rules)

We welcome you to stay at our straight forward and informal campsite situated on our farm within picturesque Sussex countryside and in the South Downs National Park. Our campsite is open 56 days during the period 1st July to 30th September (weather permitting).

The site is basic and one simple field on our farm.  Pitches will be marked out around the field, but we do not allocate pitches so you can choose your perfect spot.



To complete your camping experience you are able to have your own small campfire. Logs are available at our onsite shop, or feel free to bring your own. Whilst we are surrounded by woodland, it is owned by the South Downs National Park who carefully manage it to promote wildlife. Therefore, however tempting, we ask you not to remove any wood from any woodland.

Our Facilities

The campsite has access to onsite toilet and showers, split into male and female. Along with washing up facilities.

On site Farm Shop selling our quality fresh meat off the farm, eggs, logs and camping essentials, including baked beans, milk and bacon. Please note the farm shop is closed on Sundays, but we take orders which can be collected on a Sunday.
