Reviewer: Glen Burrows 1 review from this member

 Just back form a great 2 days in Alfriston, the campsite was packed on Saturday night but still quite by 10pm which is amazing considering how many teens were there.

Sunday night however was amazing, nearly empty and absolutely silent. The site is basically a large field in a valley surrounded by trees on 2 sides, as it is up a farm track it's great for children as they can run around and explore.

The arrangement is nice and casual, just pitch up and set up, no check in and Roy the owner will find you for payment which is a very reasonable 6 each for adults.

Showers and toilets are great with plenty of hot water, the only very small gripe is that there are only 2 washing up sinks which means a queue at busy times on Saturday night.

I am a paraglider pilot and the site is right in the middle of the south downs and handy for many of the Southern Club flying sites being a few minutes away form High and Over and not far by car from Caburn so I will definitely be back as the whole family loved the weekend.

Alfriston is a very quaint little village with more than it's fair share of pubs serving very good pub food for non-cooking nights

 Alfriston Camping Park was a beautiful setting for celebrating my birthday with 43 friends (recommended for group bookings).

Roy (the owner) is extremely helpful.

The children enjoyed playing tennis for free and horse riding from the adjacent stables.

It is a good base for walking on the South Downs and surrounding area.

Taking a short walk into the village we enjoyed browsing the shops and we tried out a couple of the pubs and the hotel near the campsite.

Drusillas Park is less than a 10 minute drive away.

We will definitely return.

 The camping fields are set in a valley making for a lo'ely setting. Plenty of room to set up away from other campers.

Toilet block is very clean and well stocked. Roy is very friendly and can be haggled with for the price of a pitch (don't ask, don't get).

Short walk into Alfriston where there are 3 pubs which are pricey on food and drink. Great place for walking, many routes pass through the area.

All in all a great campsite and surrounding area

 This site is in a beautiful setting well away from the road but very close the pretty village of Alfriston which has a choice of pubs, restaurants and a great village store.

The field well maintained and gently sloping but some flat pitches are available. It is a basic site with no special area or equipment for children to play on so perhaps best suited to adults and children who can make their own entertainment.

The site is right next to the South Downs Way which makes it an excellent spot for walkers. The general camping field is right next to the one used by groups (on our weekend there were two organised groups of teenagers who were rather noisy!) so it may be a good idea to choose a pitch away from the boundary if you value peace and quiet.

The downside to this site is the very poor facilities. They are a long way from the camping field, inadequate for the number of people using the site (they were also used by the groups in the rally field), poorly maintained and did not appear to be cleaned throughout the whole weekend.

The ladies part in particular was quite unpleasant by Sunday. There is an outside sink for washing up with a cold water supply apparently it will sometimes deliver warm water as well. The rubbish bin was overflowing with bags of rubbish piled around it.

If the owner could only improve the standard of the basic facilities then this would be a gorgeous place for a short break.

Reviewer: Courtingladyluck 1 review from this member

 To be honest, this campsite is exactly as described in the reviews.

The field is large, well situated and peaceful, apart from a few less considerate residents (but that's not anyone's fault). Toilet/shower block is a five minute walk away, but that's not really a hassle, unless you're busting! They are quite dilapidated and the hot water doesn't always run very powerfully at all (TIP: run the hot tap once you've put the shower on and it triggers the pump - lovely hot jets of water!).

Otherwise, Roy is very obliging, is around enough that if you have any problems you can find him easily, and was more than pleasant.

It's not the cheapest campsite (though it's far from the most expensive) but as long as you're happy with a bit of hot running water and beautiful surroundings, then going without electricity and a toilet right next door is perfectly bearable.

 Beautiful site and location. We really wanted to be nearer the coast but everything was booked up. However, this is a very short drive away from Seaford, Beachy Head etc and at the end of the day you are next to a lovely village by short walk where there is everything you need (except a cashpoint!).

I thought it was a lovely campsite, just a big field with great views, the way we like it. Roy was taking an interest in everyone's welfare, checking everything was OK and answering any questions etc (but not too in-your-face).

And a good thing is you can just turn up and pitch your tent - Roy will find you. There is none of that checking in and earliest time for arrival etc that sort of takes away from the 'back to nature' appeal of camping.

And no caravans! Hurray! The campers seemed to be mainly adult groups, walkers etc.

Shower and toilet facilities are minimal but adequate for a night if you are fussy - or longer if you are not. Owner's comment: Please note that from May 2010 we now have new separate Ladies / Gents, Toilet / Shower facilities.

It's a nice walk to the local pubs in the evening.

I hope this campsite goes from strength to strength!

 This was our first camping trip ever, so we were a little nervous.

Out of the 3 other sites we tried to contact, this is the only one that replied.

Roy was really relaxed, allowed us to arrive when we wanted and was not too worried about us having to leave at a specific time.

He also recommended a great beach which was really fantastic.(we did have great weather)

The facilities were basic and use-able, just a little too far for comfort.

We were unfortunate with some of our fellow campers who were pretty noisy and kept us up.

Would definitely visit again, with ear-plugs and a plan to camp closer to the beginning of the field.

 Finding the campsite proved to be tricky, as we drove passed the tiny signpost at the entrance to the driveway. Could do with better signage from the road in both directions.

The facilities were shared with the tennis club, situated next to the campsite. Although basic, the shower was good and there was plenty of hot water for showering and pot washing. The campsite would benefit however from having more showers and toilets. The site owner who was very pleasant and obliging, told us he was waiting for planning permission from the local council to build new facilities. Owner's comment: Please note that from May 2010 we now have new separate Ladies / Gents, Toilet / Shower facilities.

The location of the campsite itself was very good, only a 10 minute walk into Alfriston which had a variety of pubs,

Restaurants and a village store. It was also a great starting point for walking or cycling with immediate access to the South Downs Way.

All in all a good campsite which could be made great with better facilities.

Reviewer: YZF600 1 review from this member

 Used this site for mountain biking week end due to location with south downs way which runs right through Alfriston.

The campsite itself was quiet and secluded and only a 10 minute walk to local pubs shops and restaurant's.

Motor homes at the entrance, caravans then camping in the top field.

Camp facilities are very basic but new facilities are planned according to the site foreman.

The 10.30 pm curfew meant a good night sleep which was a big plus and the site foreman Roy Savage was very helpful and obliging.

All in all a great campsite which will be perfect once new facilities are in place.

Will definitely be going back.
