The Owner Says

New for 2016 is our fairytale treehouse perched up among the trees on the campsite. It sleeps up to four adults or two adults and two children (possibly three, ask when booking), with a double bed as well as a snug loft bed. The Tree House is fully self contained with a toilet and shower room in the turret and a kitchen equipped with ceramic hob, fridge, toaster and microwave oven. It is fully heated and insulated to the highest standard and also comes with a wood burning stove for extra cosiness. A lovely window seat is perfect for observing wild life or contemplating life in general! The outside area offers a terrace with seating for al fresco dining and a chimenea for keeping warm on chilly evenings. All bedding & towels supplied.  Sorry no pets!

The South Downs National Park (01730 814810) is the newest in the UK, which means a lot of recent investment in the excellent paths and landscape. The site provides route maps for lovely local walks, there are footpaths and bridleways galore and depending on which direction you take, a 45-minute walk can take you to the village of Ditchling; to the superb Jolly Sportsman pub or Half Moon with outstanding food and friendly ambience; or to the Black Cap viewpoint, a high point on the South Downs Way from where you can see eight miles across the Sussex countryside to the sea. Chilled-out Lewes is just 5 miles away, or it’s 8 miles to the bright lights of Brighton, with its pier, pebble beach and pavilion.

Food & Drink

A well-stocked campsite shop sells local produce, including eggs, bacon, sausages and locally produced wine and beer. There’s some great pubs within walking distance; The Jolly Sportsman and The Half Moon are fantastically snug and cosy and serve up a changing menu of gastro delights.
