Have just spent a relaxing weekend here are Farm House Camping and it is a lovely gem of a site. As motorhome owners we have our own facilities, but we did have a quick check to see what they were like. The toilets and showers are basic and the washing up area isn't covered, but there are recycling bins, which you don't see on all camp sites.

The main attraction of this site is the views and the price. Once you are parked up and set up you can sit back and relax and just listen to the sound of silence. No road noise, just the local geese and chickens ( there is duck poo near the top of the site as they run free)

The magnificent view of the South Downs is well worth the 14 a night including electric.

The local pub is just 400 yards away, with the shop a few yards away from that. We didn't eat here so can't give an opinion, as we cycled along the old railway to Henfield and ate at the white Hart, which was great.

Luckily the weekend we were here there was also a cider festival at the Shepard and Dog at Falking, a nice 2 1/2 mile ride with a great pub at the end.

We'll definitely be returning here, great value and location

We camped here for the August bank holiday because literally everywhere else was fully booked.

The site is basically a field behind a farm house. The atmosphere is nice and there are farm animals including chickens and a goat, as well as some noisy geese. The surrounding area is good and there is an excellent pub in the village. The local shop only a five minute walk.

As mentioned in the previous reviews the main sticking point is the toilet facilities. Very run down and basic. There is one shower in each block which is powered by tokens (75p each from reception). I was worried that there would to be too few facilities for the number of people on the site, potentially over 100 if it was full. But no one seemed to use them, probably because they were so grim. A lot of campers seemed to be fairly local and made the trip home to take a shower.

It was a fairly wet weekend and there was a major problem with access to the site. Vehicles were restricted to one exit route which soon turned into a mire. Caravans had to be towed off by tractor. It would not take much to make a safe exit road and this is definitely necessary.

Overall this site represents good value, perhaps ok if you were in a caravan, but the poor facilities mean I would not visit again.

Our first visit to Farmhouse Camping was a toss up between this and Washington. So glad we chose this one.

Now in our 5th year and a fair few stays here, I can honestly say I would not go anywhere else. The site is very well kept and the owners are very friendly and have always been very helpful. They can't do enough for you. Nothing is too much trouble.

The showers are basic but they are clean and well kept, lets remember after all, this is camping ! For the price I think it's well worth the money. They said this year they have has to put the price up to 13 per night with electrics. I'd never quibble with a great deal like that, with the service as well, a very good deal indeed.

The field is very well drained, we have only ever had one muddy trip here. One of those things. It's well kept and grass in good condition. Beautiful views of the South Downsand the rear of Devils Dyke. It's very well situated with Brighton and Worthing a short journey away.

We wouldn't go anywhere else. We love the place and the people. It's a great place for kids as well and we always feel safe letting then play here.

Very dog friendly as well. Our Springer and Terrier love it as much as our kids.

Overall, a beautiful and friendly place to stay.

Why go anywhere else.

C Seldon.

With so many positive reviews I was curious as to why Aug 2012 was the last review date so thought I'd go and investigate. Well done to the owners for opening before the main season.

Easy to find, at the end of a short road of ordinary houses, convenience store very nearby and Henfield itself probably only about a mile away with a selection of shops.

In essence, this site is someone's back garden, albeit a large one, and reception is their lounge window! Owners seemed pleasant and helpful.

A large, flat and level square all grass field, electrical hook-ups round the edges, ground felt it would cope with lots of rain without going to mud and was excellent for tent pegs, although I felt this site is very much geared towards caravans.

Views of the Downs in one direction were just excellent, 180 degrees opposite were the fences of domestic back gardens so simply point your chair in the direction of the sea!.

The facitlites area has clearly marked rubbish and recycling bins, Elsan point, fresh water tap and uncovered washing up area.

As mentioned in reviews going back years, the toilet and shower area really let this site down badly - a lot could be improved by spending a summer weekend's fees on it, for example, and would show the owners were at least making an effort. Showers are token controlled, sign said 75p for 5 mins. Hand basin has electric water, soap provided.

On the subject of fees, tents from 10, caravans from 13, think dogs free.

Goat, chickens and ducks are tethered / free to roam in the field which I think adds a nice touch.

Overall, a pleasant and relaxing site, good views, a useful base for visiting local attractions / coast, sensible charging structure but let down by the facilities. I would return.

Had a fantastic stay here as we do every year because we and our children enjoy the freedom to enjoy the site and the regulars we meet there each time to catch up. The owners have known us since we were kids and we have attended the site almost every year for the past 20 years. the owners are a wonderful couple and very tolerant of many things and people, which makes the site a pleasant, usually quiet, place to stay. I wouldn't advise couples or singles to use this site as it is a FAMILY site.

The toilet and showers are a bit old fashioned and could do with an upgrade. the site has a large selection of wildfowl and some goats which goes down very well with the kids and adults too! You can also buy very fresh eggs for a very reasonable cost and I would recommend any one tries at least one for breakfast!

The site offers electric hookup if you require it and there is a local shop for those odds and bods you may have forgotten.

This year we had a very small party (with guitars) with a couple, who we knew with their children and another tent with relatives, to celebrate my birthday with the kind permission of the owners.

Thank you guys and see you in 2013.

Met by friendly owner and told to pitch where we wanted but not round the edges. It was fairly dificult to find a space not because it was busy but because it was a free for all and folks were pitched all over the place so difficult to find a space that didn't feel you were staring at another camper. Finally found somewhere OK.

The site is a in a beautiful location with views of the Downs and well placed for Brighton.

Toilets were just about Ok in a kind of 1970's camping way but showers were unpleasant and didn't use.

It was very noisy at night with guitars and kids playing till late at night and then kids up and shouting at 6am too. All very laid back which is great sometimes but a bit of thought for other campers would have been appreciated.

All in all I'm a bit unsure. Cheap site and friendly owners but not organised at all and the toilets would be unpleasant for longer than the two nights I stayed.
