We are a family run working farm in the heart of the Sussex Weald, we have a meadow in the middle of 70 acres of ancient coppiced woodland for those who enjoy a bit of wild camping with open fires. We have our bell tents in gorgeous private clearings with wood-burning stoves and toilet and shower facilities, and right at the top of the camping scale we have our safari tent, in a large sunny glade in exclusive area of woodland, 3 bedrooms, wood burning range, ‘normal’ hot shower and hot water to the Belfast sink in the kitchen, state of the art waterless toilet, you really couldn’t ask for anything more. This is the ultimate in luxury camping, or glamping as it has become known.The newest addition to our camping stable is, The Cabin which was built by a team from William Hardie Designs after an idea by architect and innovative design aficionado George Clarke. The build was filmed throughout and shown on the third series of the Channel 4 programme George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, using local resources and timber harvested from our ancient coppice woodland.The Encampment is an exclusive area with 3 pitches around a natural pond. It has its own tree bog loo and covered washing up area. for more information and photos please click here to go to our wild camping page.We are a dog friendly camp site, providing they are kept under control!
