 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.

 Stayed with my 2 JRT for 5 nights, Julie and Paul were super always there to help ( I ran out of calor so Paul connected my stove to one of his bottles for my stay)

It's a beautifully kept site very peaceful and the shower, even though a porta shower,was probably the best one I have ever used camping.

Great for the dogs 2mins walk from the site we were gone for 2hrs didn't meet a sole or car.

Tesco is 5min drive with a great garden centre opp,

I will deffo be going back

 It was a lovely peaceful site. The pond is a nice addition and very tranquil.

The facilities were exceptionally clean and well maintained.

The owner was very friendly and approachable.

 Lovely quiet site with good views.

Pitches spaced well apart. Covid measures had been thought out which was reassuring.

Friendly staff.

Didn't explore the area because we only went for one night.

 Lovely clean site with large plots. Shower very good.

Either ask for shade or a plot away from the road. It was quiet at night but traffic got going quite early and although itís in no way a major road it was a commuter shortcut I think.

Very friendly owners. Would return and recommend.

 Had a fantastic time at this site again over the bank holiday weekend. A lovely welcome as always from owners Julie and Paul. They have done so much work and made such a huge improvement to this site since our last visit.

It was so warming to see how busy this site was, really pleased for them. Love the fact there is no electricity on this site, had to sit, chill, read, chat to the neighbours (even our dogs got on nicely), enjoy the scenery, watch the distant storm, listen to the birds.

Left here feeling like we had had a proper break rather than just a few days. Look forward to returning soon

Reviewer: Cliff B 1 review from this member

 Back home after my second visit to this site. Arrived at noon on Bank Holiday Monday after the crowds had gone and the site was spotless, as it was on my previous visit. I was told to pitch where I wanted to, (again as before)and set up on the grass under some Oak Trees backing onto the road.

What I didn't work out was that it was Autumn and the acorns were falling from the trees on to the 'van roof. My fault entirely, but after the first 100 or so, I no longer noticed them. There were plenty of Tractors on the road outside, but it's also harvest time and the crops have to come in while the weather is fine. Again, no problem for me with road noise. As for train noise mentioned by other reviewers, the railway is down in the valley surrounded by trees, so the noise is negligible and you can't see the trains.

Yes, I suppose to some the facilities are a bit 'lacking' with no electric, only Two Male and Two Female loos and one shower, but if you're camping, what do you expect for the prices charged? Get up a bit earlier or hang on until the morning rush is over and you'll get a great, hot shower with no problems. Go when everybody else does and you gotta wait mate.

Shops etc are a car ride away in Crowborough, or there is a Tesco Shed and a Sainsbury's local in Jarvis Brook.

The facilities and grounds on site are kept in excellent condition by Julie and Paul, and nothing is too much trouble for either of them.

I would, (and I HAVE) recommend this site to others. If you want peace and quiet, no Computer, no TV, etc. And above all, no KIDS, this could be the site for you.

Thanks Julie and Paul. I will be back, September maybe.
