Camping in Kent
Our campsite is set in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there is a wealth of wildlife, footpaths (including the Weald Way and the Sussex Border Path), outdoor activities, and interesting places to visit on the doorstep.
Camping is offered in an informal setting in the garden, amongst the old brick and tiled farm buildings, near the pond, and in the field with views to Ashdown Forest. There are no marked sites. Picnic tables and benches and camp-fire sites, and a limited number of electric hook-up points, are available in various places. Bags of wood can be bought at the farmhouse (you may bring your own wood if you wish, but please do not collect wood from the local countryside!).
A recycling point for glass, paper and cans is provided, and there is also a chemical toilet emptying point. A recently renovated old cowshed offers excellent toilet and shower facilities, and laundry area, with coin-operated washing machine and drier. A fridge-freezer and microwave oven is also available for guests’ use. We have also adapted an adjacent building to house several washing-up basins, with hot and cold water.
Dogs are allowed on the campsite, but must be kept on a lead at all times.
Please note: We do not allow radios or loud music on the campsite.
You can check availability and see independent reviews, on the www.ukcampsite.co.uk website, and camping bookings can be made any time after February 1st.
We were able to offer ‘Rent-A-Hen’s last year, but with the current DEFRA-imposed strict regulations on the keeping of birds, because the possibility of Avian flu.
