Run by campers, this spacious site on organic land in rural Sussex has two main fields with level camping, toilets, water taps, hot shower and direct access to the Weald Way. We have no set pitches - just turn up and find your own ambiance.

Open fires are a favorite of ours - we love the smell of wood smoke - and logs can be supplied. We want to have as low an impact on the land as possible. Therefore we have created waterless (smell-free) toilets which allows all waste to return to nature. We can deal with all recyclable waste, cans, tins, glass and plastic bottles, food scraps, but please take any non-recyclable (mainly plastic wrappers) waste with you when you leave.

You should be able to park by your tents in camping fields. Dogs are allowed but only on leads when leaving the site as we are surrounded by livestock. Make sure you clear up their waste (dumping eco-bags in the compost bin is ok).

Families are really welcome - children stay at the campsite free of charge. Please be careful of the kids having any crisps, sweets or drinks in individual wrappers as these can end up all over the unspoilt countryside surrounding us.

Merrylands offers bargain rates for this fantastic open land in the heart of the Low Weald rolling Sussex landscape. Come and join us - we look forward to meeting you.
