Campsite Description

Campsite overview

Lovely, relaxed proper campsite surrounded by woods, nestled into a valley in the South Downs National Park - and with newly refurbished facilities. A great place for families, couples and groups (we have separate a field area for groups so everyone has space). We're a tent and campervan only campsite with no hook-ups - we like to keep it as simple and natural as possible....

Separate Ladies/Gents Toilet/Shower Facilities. Women's Changing/Toilet/Shower Area have been refurbished. 3 Further Shower/Toilets/Washbasins. Kitchen Area Moved. Also Available: Fridge for Ice Boxes, Etc and Sockets for Chargers, Etc.

Great activities / places of interest within walking distance

The site itself is set near the picturesque village of Alfriston along the Cuckmere River. Set within the South Downs there are numerous walks to be enjoyed if so inclined such as the South Downs Way. The village of Alfriston itself contains a number of quaint Old English shops and tearooms as well as a number of restaurants and two hotels whose restaurants are also open to non-residents. There are also pubs within walking distance too.

Great activities / places of interest a little further afield

Drusillas Zoo Park can be found further on from Alfriston either by car or by walking. The English Wine Centre can also be found next to Drusillas and sells locally brewed wine as well as wine from other parts of the country. The Living World Nature Centre can also be found in the local area and well as The Seven Sisters Country Park.
