 Lovely Campsite, very quiet.

Fires allowed.

Child friendly.

Staff are great.

We have been a few times and will go again.

There's a shop close by for supplies and most of the pitches are very private.

 This is a lovely campsite with a beautiful setting and a wild, wooded feel to it - great introduction to no-frills "wild" camping for our group of 3x dads & 3x 8 year olds.

It's very easily accessible from London, only about 20 minutes from the M25 (Junction 6). The town of East Grinstead is nearby (close enough to walk, if you wanted to), with good choice of shops pubs etc. , but because of the hilly terrain, the site has a lovely remote and rural feel to it - no traffic noise, minimal light pollution for SE England, the occasional plane in the distance heading in to Gatwick.

The pitches are large and secluded, we had plenty of room for our three tents & couldn't hear any of the other families.

Toilets and other facilities are on the "natural" side - composting toilets with sawdust. We wanted wild camping and we got it. Fine for us, everything was clean and well maintained, but might not be your cup of tea. There's no campsite shop but the site operators provide fresh water and sell fire logs.

Only down sides of the woodland setting is that the floor is leaf mould rather than grass (it gets everywhere), they do have some grass pitches elsewhere in the site & you could likely get one on request. And a few tree roots in the soil, you'd definitely want a floor mat for a comfortable night's sleep.

Great value, friendly management, lots to explore nearby, all good.

 Camping in the woods at its best. A small and cosy campsite that makes you feel truly lost in the woods.

A variety of pitches so you can find the perfect spot.

Good compost toilets that were clean.

We would come and camp here again.

You can just about hear the road at times, but that didn't bother us. You can choose a pitch with views over the town or countryside or get right into the woods.

 It isn't often you get to camp in the midst of genuine oak wood.

It was a hot weekend so it was nice to take the edge off with a bit of dappled shading. You cannot drive to the pitch but don't discount just yet (as I usually do). We pack heavy and I mean kitchen sink heavy. They chuck everything into a giant box trailer so it isn't the nightmare multi portage with a wheelbarrow that some sites offer.

As well as a car load of stuff I had my own box trailer and they were happy to take that to the pitch. Our friends moved everything from car boot to their trailer to campsite without issue.

Plenty of space for us and another family at the pitch as well as the camp kitchen Coleman shelter. Fire is on the ground with a makeshift brick surround.

Some nice walks but we didn't go far as only staying two nights. Water provided to the pitch in two large containers. No standing tap but we didn't run out and they replenish daily or more if you phone. Wood sold on site was nice and dry and dense.

Some pitches slope a bit. One of the main reasons we keep coming back is the pitches are 100 yards apart or more so a nice solitary experience even though they were almost fully booked.

They had portaloos as part of the covid distance measures but having cooked in the sun for two days they were pretty toxic. Younger kids could roam in the woods without us fretting as within shouting distance and no roads or machinery to worry about.

The compost toilets were fine, albeit a 3 minute walk from the pitch. This caused some grumbles from teen daughters but I was glad to see the kids stretch their legs and experience camping rather than too cushy everything on your doorstep glamping.

We were not exactly roughing it though and all enjoyed the nice views, peaceful ambience and the hammock slung between two oaks. 40 minutes away from M25 means the homeward bound journey was a doddle.

 Beautiful place. Proper camping.

Huge private pitches in the woodland.

Clean compost toilets.

One recommendation I would make is that it is so hard to find. If it were me I'd put a sign on the road

 Brilliant! Had the best couple of nights with my family and friends. Prices was really good and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Beautiful grounds, we camped in the woods and we had our own private pitch.

Will definitely be coming back in the near future as a regular. Strongly recommend.

 What a fabulous place, we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here, we stayed on a pitch in the woodlands with friends and all experienced a fabulous stay.

The owners deliver wood and water to you, they r on hand if you need anything.

The compost toilets are not something I have experienced before and they were ok, clean and plenty of paper/ antibacterial gel. My only criticism is there are only 4 toilets at the top of the woods, so a bit of a trek when staying at the bottom,

However we will definitely be returning here.

Reviewer: Loiraarnold 1 review from this member

 I don't have enough good words to say about our camping trip at Evergreen Farm Woodland Campsite! We traveled as a group (3 families) and 2 of us came in a car and another on train from London.

It's a really easy 5 min drive/taxi (or bus!) from East Grinstead Station. The owner of the campsite, Chris, was so helpful and available before and during our stay. When you arrive and park, he has a trailer where you put all your things and drives you to your campsite.

We had a lovely pitch at the bottom of the hill and even though it was a busy night, we felt completely secluded (couldn't hear anyone even after 10pm when it was dark -- although you could see other campfires going on in the distance).

Great for kids (we had 3 toddlers and 2 babies with us). The firewood is only 7. 50 for a big bag. Every pitch has a campfire set up too. This is only a tent only campsite but it was perfect for what we were looking for.

There are no showers, but the compost toilets were clean and you are provided with a big tank of clean, drinkable water for your stay (we didn't even get half way through it).

Also close enough to a National Trust, Ashdown Forest, and East Grinstead for kids' playgrounds, activities, a nice meal at a pub, or a quick food shop.

We'll definitely be back for a longer stay next time!

 Great camping experience, best one in a long time. We had a lovely peaceful weekend at this small woodland campsite.

Pitches spacious no one nearby and the best part of all the campfire. Location lovely. Compost toilets best I have used. Did not smell. Owners helpful.

Cannot wait to go back next year.
