Reviewer: Mrslor 1 review from this member

 Liked: Absolutely perfect campsite for a relaxing peaceful break, the fishing lake was beautiful, wasn't there for the fishing so can't comment on that.
Actual campsite was pretty much an L shape so not just a big square field all over looking each other which felt lovely and private and the pitches were a good size, plenty of room for my 5 x 4m touareg tent, gazebo and car, also adults only so lovely and quiet.

Facilities were more than adequate, only 1 shower as the other was broken but no queuing and it was fixed quickly anyway. Place was spotlessly clean too.

Fire pits were free to borrow and logs and kindling were for sale. Big Tesco just a 5 minute drive away and plenty of restaurants etc in Crowborough main town.

There's a vineyard next to the campsite but didn't have time to visit unfortunately. I'm looking to return already and taking my dog as it's super dog friendly.

Owners were so friendly and it was a privilege to share their beautiful campsite, their passion for the place shines through. I stay in a lot of sites and this is my favourite by far!

Disliked: Didn't bother me but so others know the 2 showers are in portaloos, worked just fine though great water pressure and temperature

 Lovely little site. So peaceful surrounded by the animals.

 This was a lovely site with a relatively small number of pitches though full for the jubilee weekend.

Great welcome and facilities were good. Didnít queue once for showers and the water was beautifully hot.

Enjoyed a campfire and fresh eggs on site.

 Lovely quiet site with immaculate grass and hardstanding pitches.

Views across the South Downs with Mares, foals and sheep as neighbours.

Owners were very helpful especially when I got stuck on a lip in the gravel!

Fresh eggs available and lots of lovely walks. No EHU.

 Lovely campsite very peaceful and tranquil.

Two ponds for fishing or just sitting and relaxing on one of the many benches or strolling with your dog, the site is very clean and well maintained toilets are clean and fresh I didn't use the shower.

Can't really think of anything I disliked if I had to dislke something it would be that we would have liked a bit more information about local amenities when we were leaving we noticed fresh eggs being sold at the gate as you drive in we would have loved to have had some for our breakfast if we knew about these.

 Quiet, well maintained site, very friendly and informative welcome. We enjoyed a campfire one night using the supplied fire basket, and a net of logs bought on site.

Well located for Ashdown Forest. Basic, but immaculately clean facilities - never crowded, but as they seemed to rely on solar power for lighting, it was a bit dim late at night!

Would recommend to others.

 Love coming to Idle Hours!

The atmosphere is chilled, always a friendly bunch of campers, owners are very welcoming, gorgeous sunsets to be enjoyed sitting beside a fire pit, plenty of walks and places to visit nearby.

Even a weekend here feels like a holiday

 I can not recommend this camp site enough. The lovely couple that run it Julie and Paul are so kind, helpful and accommodating,

The toilet and shower are spotless clean and the small touches makes a big difference.

The beautiful views of sheep, horses, chicken a deer are wonderful and relaxing we will definitely be returning next year.

 Just had a wonderful few days at Idle Hours Owlsbury Park. Julie and Paul are excellent and friendly hosts at this adults only non electric campsite.

It has nice views towards the South Downs, and with not too much in the way of light pollution, it is the perfect location for sitting around a fire in the evening watching the stars.

Local produce can be obtained from Mary or the town of Crowborough is nearby.

For a quiet break with a pleasant atmosphere, Idle Hours cannot be beaten.
