Just back from a three night stay at Clippenham with my six year old son.

When we arrived we had a very warm welcome from Naimh. It turned out we had a nine acre field to ourselves as a number of people had cancelled on her at short notice due to the weather forecast.

My son had a whale of a time running round the field and woods. He's not used to having so much space! As we were the only ones there it was very safe for him. He was happy to see rabbits, pheasants, crows etc.

Despite no facilities for him (apart from some football goals we found in the neighbouring field on the last day of our stay), he was quite content to entertain himself or help with the camp fire cooking.

The fire pits were a big plus for us. The site is very clean with plenty of space. Very nice countryside around.

Only a short drive to Hailsham or Eastbourne.

My only gripes. In the ideal world would like to see plumbed in toilets and hot water for showers/washing up.

One small thing, would be handy to have plugs for the washing up sinks/wash block.

Apart from that a big thumbs up to Naimh and her husband.

Would definitely go back again but without the hot water would not stay longer than 2/3 nights like we did this time.

Stayed here for 3 nights in early August. What a gem! It wasn't too busy, but the camping field is so big, you can't even see people at the other end! There is plenty of room here - lots of space between pitches. There were several portaloo's, and a cold portashower, as well as a sink/washing up area at one end of the field. Bags of wood are available too.

The owner was extremely helpful and friendly, and was happy to tell us about the local area. Even provided discount vouchers for the local pub - the Merrie Harriers - food is great.

The campsite is lovely - and you can walk through the woods and other fields where there are some stunning views!

We had clear skies and the stars were amazing. We also had thunder/lightning one night, which was an experience!

We have already booked our next trip!

My 10yr old son and I stayed at Clippenham for a weekend this summer and our only regret was that we didn't have time to stay longer - but we'll certainly be going back. The campsite and facilities are low-key - facilities are basic - but this is all to its benefit - it's back to nature as camping should be.

The campsite is part of and surrounded by beautiful countryside. It includes a small, unspoilt woodland - great for exploring at dusk.

We were left to choose where we wanted to pitch in the huge camping field which was also a bonus. Our closest neighbour was about 200m away!

To cap it all, the owner is super friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended if back to basics camping is your forte.

Have just had a fantastic weekend at Clippenham with a group of friends. Beautiful rural site with campfires, loads of space and woods for the kids to play in. Basic, but very clean facilities. The owner was extremely hospitable and couldn't do enough for us. Thanks very much for a great chilled out weekend.

In detail:

The site is arranged in two fields with a reception tent in the third field, all close to the owners' farmhouse. (Our car is long and low, but had no problems getting in and out of the field. ) One field has two bell tents which are available for hire, a cooking shelter and gazebo, a portable loo and sink. In the other field there are three sinks, two portaloos a washing shelter with butlers sink and a cold portable shower (refreshing on a warm morning!). There are several adjoining fields and woods surrounding also owned by the farm which are good for exploring.

We didn't venture further afield but understand the Merrie Harriers (a good pub) is a short walk away. The owner often has eggs available, but the nearest big supermarket is probably between 5 and 10 minutes drive. Beautiful countryside all around (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and loads of things to do with or without kids within a 30 min drive, even on wet days.

We had a fantastic bank holiday weekend camping here. The ability to have a camp fire was a real bonus and made the weekend. There was also a beer and music festival on at the local pub (The Merrie Ferrier).

The pub was about a 15 minute walk away. The owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The facilities are basic, but the countryside, walking and campfire more than make up for it.

Would recommend the camp site as the pitches are far apart and you don't feel you are on top of each other. It was a perfect escape from London and only and hour and half’s drive.

Will be returning again next year!

Spent an amazing weekend at Clippenham, lots of free space in the middle for children to play.

Beautiful fields and amazing woods, which our kids loved exploring.

Being able to sit around a real camp fire melting marshmallows was a lovely added extra as many sites don't allow this. Spacious, quiet and a pub 10 minutes down the road!

Owner is lovely willing to help in anyway, toilet facilities were always clean, non smelly and always had more then enough toilet rolls Overall amazing stay will definitely be going back next year and recommending!
