 I stopped here with a small tent just for one night whilst backpacking the South Down Way. The site is set in a lovely valley and is very quiet (apart from the odd rook in the trees!).

The owner was very friendly and it was really good value for money. The site covers two large fields. I pitched up the top so as to be sheltered by the trees with my tent catching both the evening sun and then the sunrise the following morning.

It took a couple of minutes to walk to the toilet block which includes hot showers The facilities are simple but clean.

The village of Alfriston is only a few minutes walk away and it has pubs, a tea room and a good general store. A walk past the church to the river gives beautiful views of an idyllic part of England

I highly recommended this site, especially for those backpacking the South Downs Way.

 We stayed here for a night and had a great albeit short stay. The facilities are exactly what you need and are nice and clean. There was plenty of hot water.

It's in a nice place in a valley between woodland. The village of Alfriston is lovely and has at least three pubs serving food and a well stocked shop.

Oh and it was a very very reasonable amount to stay there. The gentleman who came to collect the money couldn't be nicer either and made sure that we were comfortable.

We'll definitely be back.

 We had a wonderful weekend (of the Royal Wedding) spent in Alfriston. The site was in a lovely setting with good facilities - what more could we ask for? Oh yes, and the weather was warm and sunny too.

Some sites we've stayed on around the world are often just too well appointed, managed and manicured, Alfriston on the other hand is comfortable and friendly and just what we were looking for.

Roy also made the pre-booking arrangements (not that they will always be required) no trouble at all.

We'll be back.

 The site is in a beautiful, quiet location. It is split into two fields; the first is an enclosed, well kept area for Caravan and Campers Members and the second field is a much larger open field for general tents and motor homes.

We stayed in the second field, half of which is flat and the other half on a slope. You can pitch your tent wherever you like. At one end of the field are some electric hook ups, but I think there are only about six of these and so I presume you are best to book in advance for these. Having said that, we decided not to be in the electric hook up section because we preferred to be out in the open area of the field rather than cramped into one end.

On the bank holiday we visited there was a pretty even split of people, half being groups of young families and the other being walkers. Although there were no signs up warning against making noise, everybody was respectful, quiet and made little or no noise after about 10.00pm.

The nearby village of Alfriston is perfect as it is only a 5minutes walk from site and has 3pubs, restaurants, newsagents and grocery store. Seaford is only a 4miles away if you want to visit the beach or go to a supermarket. There is also a small (expensive) zoo about 3miles away.

The only downside to the site is that the toilet and shower facilities are very basic. They are clean and have plenty of hot water etc, but the site would be perfect if they had purpose built, modern showers and toilets.

The site has only been open 4years and so I expect that new buildings will be built at a later date once the site becomes more established. It only cost us 12 a night for two adults, one child and one dog, which I think is a bargain. I would happily pay much more than this if they decided to build some new showers/toilets.

So, in summary it is a hidden gem of a site with lots of potential. We will definitely visit again soon.

 Found the campsite well sign posted in a good location just beyond the picturesque town of Alfriston.

The site itself has 2 distinct areas, the first for members which benefit from the mowed lawns and designated flat marked pitch areas. The second, which I used is presumably for the general passing trade and is basically a large field with no special conveniences.

The wash room and toilet facilities are adequate, with good showers and covered open air wash areas. Hot running water was not an issue although it was admittedly quiet.

Fresh drinking water is provided from several taps dotted around the field. As it was not busy we had the choice of where to pitch, which was just as well as much of the field in on a slope.

The owner was pleasant and accommodating and charged us a fiver a head, which was fair. On the whole I would recommend the site to others and use the site again myself.

Its location is well suited to those wishing to explore the south downs and it has excellent road links to nearby Eastbourne, Newhaven and Seaford.

 We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Alfriston campsite. We are a family of three and found the campsite had everything we needed.

The atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful, which started from the moment we arrived. Roy the owner is very welcoming and is on hand for advice on the local area.

The toilets and showers are adequate and clean. It would be great to have a shower block in the tent field in the future.

Our 2 yrs old girl really enjoyed herself. We visited Drusillas Zoo which is a 5 min drive away which was fantastic. The local village has all the shops that you need to restock supplies or grea pubs and restaurants to eat out in. There are lots of walking routes to take from the campsite which we tried to embark on.

Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely return for another break.

 We stayed here in August and despite not particularly good weather we had a lovely weekend. The campsite is lovely and quiet with simple and clean amenities - exactly as described and what we were after.

The location is beautiful and peaceful and other campers seem to keep themselves to themselves and keep the noise to a minimum after about 10.30pm.

The new shower blocks for the men have been built and the ladies are being done next month but even so they were acceptable with a handy little kitchen area with a fridge/kettle/microwave if ever you wanted to use it.

We took 4 teenage girls with us and they all managed to keep themselves entertained by going for walks to the local village and keeping a camp fire going (in a fire pit) for the most of the weekend - exactly what camping should be about - not commercialised!

We will definitely be going back to this one - we think we've found a nice little site that's not over crowded - and also a good price.

Great site owner too, friendly and approachable. Thanks for a lovely weekend :)

 Stayed here in the week before and the weekend of the bank holiday. Its a lovely, basic site. The showers and facilities are ok - better for the men than for the ladies, but Roy, the ever helpful owner, did recommend that my partner used the mens showers during the week when it was quiet. He also promised a further refurb for october, when the whole shower block is going to be improved.

During the week, the site was really quiet, and a lovely space, despite the weather, but my only complaint would be that it was probably a bit too full for the bank holiday. Part of the main field had been reserved for a rally, but everyone else was sardined in - to the point, where we went out for the day, and found a tent in the spot where we normally left our car ( ie - very close). The caravan field was virtually empty, and you can't help but think that a bit of common sense should have prevailed to make more room for the normal campers.

Alfriston is a lovely little village, with plenty of eating out options, and the surrounding area is great for walking and days out to brighton, beachy head, cuckmere haven, eastbourne. The list is almost endless!

We don't often return to campsites, but would definitely go back to his one if we happened to be back in this area.

 We made our second visit to Alfriston Camping Park the Thursday and Friday prior to the August Bank Holiday, on arrival there was plenty of space to pitch the tent. There was part of the field roped off for a motorcaravan rally but still a good half left for private campers.

The weather was very wet on the first night but fortunately the new tent held up and the field didn't become water logged. The gents showers were much improved to our first visit as they were out of order on that visit. Nice that you don't have to pay for them and there is plenty of hot water. There is apparently another shower planned for the gents for next season.

Not sure about the female facilities as didn't use.

Toilets were clean and stocked with paper, a bit of a walk from the tent field but there is a portaloo up there you can use if you don't want to walk so far.

All in all lovely stay and good value for money at 6 pppn, no extras for the car or if we put a wind break up.

 I've been to Alfriston Camping with my kids aged 12 and 14. Low-priced, quiet rural place on a horse farm with plenty of space and a nice view on the hills. They have separate sites for tents, caravans and mobile homes. There is no electricity on the tents' site. The showers and toilets are basic but clean, with enough room.

Roy, the owner, comes along at least twice the day; he is always helpful.

The village Alfriston is only a some-minutes walk away and has a cute shop with everything you need (not really cheap of course), non-food and food including organic bread, baguettes, croissant and stuff.

We stayed two nights on our way from Germany to the South-West, and we liked it. Also to take a trip to Brighton, Alfriston is a convenient and non-expensive base camp.
