 We have just returned from another relaxing stay at The Alfriston camping park with some friends.This camp site is a great place to go for a real switch off from the out side world, take your dogs for a great long walk to the pub for lunch and sit around in the evening chatting to friends.It got a bit windy and wet on the Saturday night and it was nice to see Roy the owner checking on everyone in the morning to ensure they were all OK. Great new mens shower block & my wife is looking forward to the ladies being done next year.

 My wife and I spent an impromptu weekend break in Alfriston. We hadn't booked and turned up in the hope of a space. As the campsite is spacious we had no problems.

When we visited, the hot showers and toilets were clean and free of charge. The Gents have been refurbished and there are plans to improve the ladies facilities by the end of the year.

On arrival we found a quiet edge of the main field for our tent. Having no car we used public transport which was easy to arrange from Brighton. The surrounding area was rolling Downland with many paths to explore. The location of the site is great as you have good access to the hills and to the village of Alfriston. Given the accessibility and good location we would visit again.

 Highly recommend this site. Just spent four enjoyable nights at this basic, straightforward site. Roy is most pleasant and appears to adopt a relaxed approach which is welcoming. Brilliant site for children who have plenty of space and can play in the adjacent woods. And we all had great fun using the tennis courts.

The fellow campers seemed to be extremely friendly and enjoying their stay. The site filled up on the Friday evening which put pressure on the limited facilities. A common problem, due to the time of year, was the constant barrage of wasps when cooking/eating/thinking about food.

Alfriston is a lovely village a short walk from the site with a good range of interesting shops. We can heartily recommend the Tudor House Restaurant which did us proud two nights running.

 A nice, spacious, peaceful simple site.

2 portable loos, a small toilet block (2 loos and 2 shower units)- never busy when we were there. Drinking water from tap. Washing up sinks.

Very easygoing. And Roy is very helpful - especially when my hopeless Halfords family tent decided to snap and tear (this has now been disposed of).

5-minute walk into the old village (don't expect to eat here every day, especially with children. Prices are astronomical - 5.50 for a scone and a cuppa in the local tea rooms).

A good base, though. Recommended

 Alfriston Camping Park is on the edge of Alfriston, which is a lovely bustling village not far from Eastbourne and set in some beautiful countryside. It should be ideal for touring and countryside walks. We've been to many camp sites and this has been the biggest let down ever!

The site is easy to drive past as there are no proper signs - just an apologetic 'camping' sign. At the end of a long dirt track past the Alfriston Riding Centre, a few houses, some tired old tennis courts, and a small complex of dilapidated sheds (the facilities) there are three fields. The first one is a well manicured and pleasant looking Caravan & Camping Club area, then the two not so well tended general camping areas.

There was a small, badly written sign pinned to a gate post directing campers to the end field. The camping area is fine - a large level area in the middle gently sloping to the edges and backing onto/overlooking lovely countryside and views. It feels quite exposed and got very windy so tie your tent down well! Very quiet at night and as there are no safety lights on the campsite at all, there was the benefit of being able to enjoy some clear starry nights.

We were quoted 15 per night by email, then charged 20 when we arrived - so be warned and print out any emails and take them with you!

The facilities are the worst any of us have ever seen. They consist of an untidy complex of home-made looking sheds that have obviously been altered over the years. There are two washing up sinks (outside), two sinks, two cubicles and two showers in each of the toilet areas. One cubicle in the gents had a rusty nail and two sharp screws sticking through the flimsy exterior wall - at small child hand/face height. Lots of cobwebs and dead insects. Facilities are dirty and not properly cleaned. Needless to say our kids hated using the facilities. When more than one person takes a shower or flushes a loo both the hot and cold water cut out! There's not even a hook to hang a towel on or somewhere to put a toilet bag etc. There is only one working water standpipe in the main camping field with a length of grotty hose on the tap.

We had arranged to meet family who were staying nearby so had to endure this site for a few days as everywhere else was now booked up. We saw a few families only stay one night then leave. This site is such a wasted opportunity on the part of the owner, if only the ubiquitous Roy could spent his time updating the site and making it safe for families he would be onto a winner.

 Spent the weekend there with my partner. We found the campsite to be spacious with clean amenities, free powerful hot showers and very peaceful at night.

Will definitely return and when we do we will ask the ever helpful and friendly owner if we can borrow his shotgun for the crows! only joking. The area has much to offer and is an undiscovered gem.

Reviewer: Salandpaul 1 review from this member

 We only stayed for one night but we wished we had stayed longer!

On arrival we saw a (very small) sign saying to find your own space and someone will come to find you later. We were fine with this and it was nice to select our own spot (near other families under the morning tree shade) but we did meet several lost looking folks in cars asking for the office.

The grounds are nicely kept with a beautiful looking caravan club space.

My only grumble would be the showers and toilets, while they were clean where it mattered and perfectly useable they were very dated and lots of spiders webs which put my small daughters off using them.

The owner Roy came round checked we were ok and familer with the area and took our money and let us know about the local village etc.

A short walk down the track and you are in Alfriston which is a lovely village with lots of cafes, pubs and gift shops to choose from, only one 'useful' village store, so if you need anything like gas or drinking water buy it before hand.

We really enjoyed the stay at Pleasant Farm, looking at the horses and watching kids play tennis, we would recommend it to anyone looking for a quite rustic camp site.

 This is a great little site. Stayed with two other families all with young kids. Lovely setting, safe for the children and the horses paddocked in the surrounding fields just added to the beautiful setting.

Alfriston is on the doorstep with good pubs and shops and the coast is only half an hour away. The owner Roy was great and the facilities are basic, but clean and work well - one of the best showers I have had on a campsite. We will be back and recommend this place to all.

 Lovely setting and surroundings for a wonderful break with friends. Tent pitch was perfect with a great view up the valley.

Daughter enjoyed the local horse riding and I enjoyed the local walks and town of Alfriston.

Facilities were basic but generally clean and the water was hot every shower!

The owner was very helpful and friendly and couldn't help enough with any problems.

Particularly enjoyed the tennis facility although it was too hot for a 3 setter!

 Just returned from a 3 night stay here. The area and campsite are both great - fantastic walking, lots of wildlife and very peaceful. Roy (the owner) was very helpful, facilities are fine. Would recommend this site to anyone wanting a relaxed, non fussy break.
