The Campsite

The camping ground is set in a meadow that has for many years been managed under the Countryside Stewardship sceme. Its backdrop is a series of ancient woods, that ring the site, thus providing tranquility and shelter, on even the windiest of days.

However, the site has also been chosen with its views in mind and they are absolutely stunning. You can't see their bottom, so The South Downs seem to float above the surrounding countryside. The southern view looks out towards the world renowned Chanctonbury Ring, an ancient bronze age hiil fort that was used by the Romans for its commanding views from the Downlands.

In typical English fashion, The Downs are actually "ups" and the term "downland" really means rolling upland. No matter! It is exceptionally beautiful whatever the case.

The camping area is around a mile from the nearest road, but it is an easy (albeit a little bumpy) drive to the camping ground, where luggage can be unloaded and cars parked close to tents.

 Because it is such a special area, our aim is to have as little impact on the immediate environment as possible. On that basis, while there are a series of discreet loos and a central washing area, there are currently no shower units and therefore no hot water. There is a cold water shower area, but we would advise washing in trunks or swimsuits because the outside shower is "au naturel"

Children are obviously very welcome and we have designated a mown area where they can play football, fly kites and generally muck around, in total freedom and safety.

Well behaved dogs are also welcomed and again, there is an area set aside for them to let off steam as well. All that we ask is that dogs are kept on a lead and that any calling cards are promptly cleared up and removed.
