 Beautiful location and setting. Lots of lovely walks and quaint shops.

The biggest downfall for us was the facilities, two toilets and one shower in an old shipping container. One for male, one for females. Lots of portaloos around. No electric hookups either. Expensive camping for a field.

The owner drives around between 5 and 6 selling wood for fires, laid back and relaxed approach.

I wouldn’t return based on the facilities.

 Nice family friendly campsite.

The owner was very nice and for first time ever (we have been camping very often through the season for many years now), we were not rushed to leave before noon.

We will definitely come back and I highly recommend this campsite to everyone.

 We were a school DofE group, the campsite was situated in a lovely setting, with ample choice of camping areas.

A very relaxing peaceful spot even with a group.

Facilities were very clean.

 Beautiful location. Stayed as three families. Site is very simple in its amenities but fine for what we needed.

Plenty of space for pitching, everyone seemed to space apart nicely.

Fires and music allowed. Children loved it.

Took a nice walk to Hartfield through fields and woodlands.

Owner very nice and helpful. Will 100% be returning.

 Beautiful location and plenty of space to pitch, camp and enjoy. Walks can be made in many directions to visit Hartfield or just meander through fields, hills and forest.

The site is dog friendly with good amenities, wood can be purchased to build a fire.

The lake is good to fish on and my 8 year old and I caught a 10lb Mirror carp which was great fun and exciting for us both.

The site was busy but still provided large space between pitches and all were friendly.

Thank you

 Fantastic beautiful campsite, we have been coming to this site for years.

It's friendly and laid back,

Lots of walks from the site and pubs nearby.

 Lovely views from the site and a choice of open field or under trees for camping.

Portacabin with two toilets and one shower each, plus washing up sinks outside next to it - seemed adequate, surprisingly! Didn't meet the owner as I was out all day.

Mostly quiet but there were some quite noisy guys the first night talking till past 1am.

Second night was wonderfully peaceful even though there were more people.

I'd definitely come again.

 Beautiful site, lovely lakes with ducks, mature trees, lots of squirrels and open views of the countryside. It is as isolated and peaceful as it is possible to be in southern England (There is distant traffic noise, and it is on the Gatwick flight path).

Mostly what you hear is the ducks, wood pigeons, geese flying over and owls in the evening. It wasn't very busy when we went, and most other visitors were friendly and considerate. (A rowdy group was reprimanded I believe. )

The camp fires all around the field were lovely, and we cooked on ours with great success. Wood is sold by the owners who come round at about 6pm, £6 a box which last about two nights.

There is no reception, when you arrive you just pitch up wherever you like. They come around twice a day and collect payment if owed, very friendly guys.

On a practical level the facilities are limited, there is a small block near the entrance with two flush toilets and one shower per gender, plus outside washing-up sinks, plenty of hot water and no charges.

There are also several portaloos dotted around the fields so never too far away, they were generally kept clean and emptied regularly. It was all perfectly adequate when we were there, but perhaps not in busier times.

Do note that the lakes are not fenced, and neither is the main camping field, in addition to open fires on the ground, so you would have to take great of care young, adventurous children.
