 Arrived around 12 as that is the earliest you are allowed to be on site.

You drive past the lovely sheltered, mown, flat caravan field to the slopy, open camping field. We found a relatively flat site at the far end of the field and set up.

The owner arrived within about an hour and took our fee of 12 for two adults.

The facilities are basic to say the least. There are about 5 portaloos outside. You are able to use the Tennis club showers and toilet block. There was hot water though. The block is also the other side of the Caravan field to the Tent field so a fair walk. Note from site owner: Please note that from May 2010 we now have new separate Ladies / Gents, Toilet / Shower facilities.

Last note is that if it is windy then think twice. The wind funnels up the valley and hits the tent field with some force.

Alfriston is a lovely village though with great pubs. About 5-01 minute walk from site. However book in advance as they don't hold many inside and if weather is poor get very busy.

 Spent a couple of nights here at the end of July and had a great time. The location is beautiful, you shaped valley with woods on one side and chalk cliffs on the other. It is surrounded by footpaths and bridal ways so is a really well situated. The village is small but very pretty with lots of pubs and good restaurants. I would recommend to bring some bricks so you can use a barbecue which we also used as a brazier for little fires.

The facilities are pretty basic but were fine and clean. There are about 6 portaloos which were pretty clean despite it being quite busy. There is just one shower which by mid morning was without hotwater but then I should have got up earlier! Note from site owner: Please note that from May 2010 we now have new separate Ladies / Gents, Toilet / Shower facilities. There are good washing up facilities which again were clean. Roy was friendly and helpful and I like the fact that you can just turn up in the week. At night it was very quiet but we still managed to stay up late without annoying anyone. So all in all it was great and will be visiting again.

 The camping feild is set in lovely bit of east sussex. The facitilties were good, showers, flush toilets, portaloos.

Roy Savage the man in charge was very helpful, friendly and the source for local information.

Stayed 2 day, glorious weather and very pleasant time.

Alfriston is a very pretty English village, village greebn, church next to the green. Had an evening meal in local pub the food was great.

Will go back and five stars for overall experience.

 We stayed here for one night whilst walking the South Downs way. The campsite is in an ideal location for this being only about 10 minutes walk off the trail.

The campsite was very quiet on the night we stayed (only us and one other small group) but the field is large enough to contain a reasonable number of tents. Unfortunately as we were the first to arrive we found it difficult to find the campsite as it was not signposted from the road and it is behind a Caravan Club site (where we started to erect our tent before being told off and moved on).
In terms of facilities, the field contains drinking water taps but these all appeared to be turned off during our stay. The shower and washing up block is next to the tennis club (the other side of the Caravan Club field).

The village of Alfriston is lovely with a good selection of pubs (we liked The George) and restaurants.

 Booked for 1 night only after borrowing a friends tent (normally use a touring caravan) as we needed to be in Brighton for the day so decided to stay over. Arrived in glorious sunshine and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of space available to pitch. There are 2 areas to the site, a caravan section and tent section. The tenting section was quite big although it is sloping in parts.

Not long after arriving Roy turned up, was very friendly and explained all the facilities and what was available in the local area.

Facilities consisted of male and female shower, toilet and washbasin within the tennis club, with several portaloos next to them. Note from site owner: Please note that from May 2010 we now have new separate Ladies / Gents, Toilet / Shower facilities.

The site is by no means 5 stars, more basic, but it had all the required essentials and with the weather being very hot it made a pleasant stay and would go back.

 This is a nice site with very friendly owners and good facilities. The shower block and portaloos are a short walk from the main tent field (200m ish) but by no means too far. The centre of the village is only a few minutes wander where there are some lovely pubs and restaurants (Ye Olde Smugglers is particularly recommended for excellent food, lovely staff and a friendly atmosphere).

Would recommend arriving early (they only take bookings for Friday and Saturday nights) as the tent field has a few slopes so getting a relatively flat plot might prove tricky if it is busy. They also did have a separate field for regular caravaners.

All in all a really pleasant weekend with some lovely walking on the South Downs

 The site is in a great location, very near to public footpaths, and the village is a really short walk away. The site is off the main village road, making it ideal for us as we have a family. There are tennis courts for use (small visitors fee charged by Roy the owner) and the kids loved the walks nearby.

The toilets and shower block were clean and the showers had plenty of hot water. It would have been nice if the toilets were slightly nearer because we have small children but it is such a short walk away really. The site wasn't crowded and so there was plenty of room for the kids to play in the field.

We loved the village with the pubs, especially the Smugglers although our friends liked The George so there is choice! The village doesn't have a take away which was unusual but this might spoil the quaintness of the village or spoil the pub trade. Loved the icecream shop (or should I say the kids did!). We will be returning to the site as there is so much to see around the area, particularly for the kids.

 We attended to find 2 area's, one that had caravans and a couple of tents on a nicely mowed & hedged area and a more wilderness like field with quite long grass containing a couple of tents. On arrival as there was nobody around we began to erect our tent in the mixed area, only to be asked to move to the other field as one of the caravaners didn't approve. Following this we moved to the more wilderness like field that had no hedges to protect it from the high winds.

Facilities-wise: showers - out of order, wash up - out of order. Portaloo's working fine. Note from site owner: Please note that from May 2010 we now have new separate Ladies / Gents, Toilet / Shower facilities.

Reviewer: Polly2006 1 review from this member

 Lovely setting for this rural camp site. The only facilities when we visited were the ones at the nearby tennis club which were basic - but very busy in the morning the loo couldn't keep up with the constant use so was blocked up on my visit. The owner was really nice and happy for our bunch to have BBQs etc.

Lovely site near village though. Would return.

 Generally a nice relaxed site very close to the local pubs and resturants, with some good local walks and cream teas. Access to the site is over some rather high speed bumps, friends had to walk when car was loaded with camping gear.

During our stay only the chemical loos were working (6 on site, 2 right next to the tent area) but none were smelly and all had plenty of loo paper & hand soap - none have lights so torches essential. 2 unisex showers (seem to be open when it gets busy, otherwise locked) plus one dedicated male & 1 female shower (although we were advised that we could use either) which are shared with the Tennis club (showers are accessed through the small tennis clubhouse). Plenty of free hot water. Note from site owner: Please note that from May 2010 we now have new separate Ladies / Gents, Toilet / Shower facilities.

Trailer Caravans were on the electrical hook ups in the adjoining field (did not seem to be many hook ups, so maybe not too many caravans?)

Our only real problem, and really nothing to do with the camp, was the large numbers of Crows nesting in the trees each side of the camping field. Something we got used to, but a very early wake up call on the first morning - this is not your normal dawn bird songs, much much worse and lasting most of the day.

Would we go back - probably, but not when the crows were nesting.
