 Beautiful setting, with wonderful views of the south downs. There is a stable and a few farmyard animals running about. A very laid back campsite with both kids and dogs running around freely. No set pitches, you can just plonk your tent anywhere which is great as your not piled up on top of each other. Showers and toilets nice and clean and cobweb free! Showers are 50p tho so take plenty of change.
Best thing about the site is that its within walking distance of Ditchling and Keymer and some fantastic country pubs.
Perfect for groups and families, highly recommended! will be going back deffo, even tho I only live round the corner in Haywards Heath!

 From reading the reviews we decided to choose this campsite for a 4 day break, however, I feel I should let everyone be aware that however nice the place is and the people, they do not take groups, even though we were two couples sharing a 4 berth tent for convenience and are all over 21. We were sadly disappointed that they could not accommodate us and feel their policy on non-family bookings should be revised.

 Stayed for 2 nights over the Easter weekend, it was extremely wet and the field turned into mud where the cars were in and out. I was concerned how my little car was going get out, but I did!

Overall a good site, but not having hot water for washing up dishes was a bit strange I thought. You also have to pay 50p for showers which gives you 10 mins of hot water. Personally don't see why they charge extra for showers when usually at sites they're free as you are paying for the site!

Overall a good site

 We booked in for the Sunday night of August bank holiday and the weather was so good we stayed until the Wednesday. The staff were very friendly and a great relaxed atmosphere. Although not modern,the showers and toilets were fine. 50p for a lovely hot shower. Washing machines and dryers available to. Also they have about 20 BBQs that you can borrow for your stay as well as a few tables and chairs. Shops and pubs very close. The only mistake we made, was getting fish and chips from the local takeaway, would not recommend it. Fantastic views and central to all areas. Definately going back next year.

Had a great weekend at this very friendly and well set up camp site.
The views are great and the surrounding area is one to explore. The facilities were kept very clean even with the site at pretty much full capacity on the Saturday. Our kids loved the animals especially the parrot's. The only improvement I could suggest would be either hot running water in the washing up area or a new kettle that doesn't take half an hour to boil. Only 10-15 mins into Brighton. Jack & Jill Pub just down the lane serves good food and is kid friendly with play area in garden. Village shops just round the corner. We'll be visiting again.

Generally a very nice site. It is exactly as described a farm site. Friendly owners. Facilities are clean and adequate. Local village a short walk with good general store and pub. We are a family of 5 and it is good to be on a site were the ‘field’ is free for you to play ball, Frisbee etc. We will visit again. I may be a little out of touch on prices but at £20 odd per night I do not expect to have to pay a further 50p for a shower.
One minor annoyance I left my razor in the showers (my fault) and realised the following morning when I went to shave, It was handed in the previous day but they have a policy of binning everything at the end of the day, it cost me £7.00 to replace which I thought unnecessary and bit of a dull policy.
Do not be put off by my minor negative comments; overall it is a very nice site and great for family holidays.

The owners of the site were very friendly and make myself and my daughter very welcome.

Nice level field and not too far to walk to use the toilet and shower facilities. The birds, chickens and goats are on route to the toilet/showers so they amused the daughter.

Enjoyed our stay though have to agree with a previous comment that the flights from Gatwick and the road can seem noisy at night.

I have stayed here for 4 years now, and well that must say something. The place is great quiet with beautiful surroundings, All the animals except one missing this year Angus the cow. I was told by Clair the owner that he was chilling out for the summer - in the freezer - was most upset had seen him grow from a calf oh well country life hey, well that is exactly what you get and if you miss those exotic holidays they have 2 parrots just to make you feel at home. Claire the owner couldnt be more helpful with extra electric leads etc etc more than happy to help nothing to much trouble, showers and toilets are cleaner than some higher rated sites i have been on and the little shop is full of goodies and local info, occasionally claire even has a bar b q on the go where you might get yourself a bite to eat. Well done claire and the gang you are superb and look foward to staying with you again, yep thats right you havnt got rid of me yet..... well recommended

Very friendly people at the site, relaxed and welcoming. Good to have a no noise policy between 11pm - 6am but beware of farm machinery starting up early - well, it is a farm!! Pitch well away from the buildings or the tractors will scare you awake in the mornings. Kettle and microwave available in washing up room. Clean showers and toliets, chicken & duck eggs from their own birds on sale, really nice place to stay. Nice 10 minute walk to Hassocks, great deli and nice cafe, useful local shops. Recommended place to stay!

Just popped in for a look on the second weekend in July.
A spectacular spot on a beautiful summer evening. Nestling at the foot of the downs ..2 large grassy fields ..obviously well cared for .some thoughtful touches ..wooden picnic tables around the site. No set pitches. A line of hookups against one side. Two showers each for men and women,, and 3 loos for the ladies ..2 for the men. Showers cost 50p.
A couple of undercover sinks ..with an electric kettle for hot water, a microwave and a toaster ..
Shop advertises eggs, apple juice ..and there may be other things available.
This site would have cost us 12.00 in total (frame tent about 11ft square)
They are strict on noise ...and you are asked to vacate by 12 midday, unless you have made a prior arrangement. The site is bordered by 2 minor roads ..which you can`t see because they are well screened by trees.
Little windmill up on the downs ... looked very pretty and the centre of some wonderful walks ..or easy to get to brighton worthing etc etc.
