There’s something immensely satisfying about pitching a tent, building a campfire and lying back to gaze at the stars, all in the happy knowledge that this is how it’s been done since our early ancestors first discovered mammoths taste better when roasted over flames. Pass the barbecue tongs.
Guests getting back to basics surrounded by nature and forgetting about overflowing email boxes/underflowing bank accounts is the aim of June and co at the very popular Oakfield Farm Campsite, under the South Downs and at the head of the Cuckmere valley.
It’s a working farm with space to camp rather than a commercial campsite, so you won’t find kids’ clubs, a bar or evening entertainment – just basic farm camping with clean facilities (shower and flushing loos), a very friendly owner, the occasional barn own flitting past and loads of countryside space to gaze at over the campfire. Pass the marshmallows.
The pitches at Oakfield Farm are kept to the edge of the farm fields so guests have plenty of space and there’s loads of room for the kids to roam free range (all safely, as cars/vehicles are only allowed at the entrance field except for unloading).
If the thought of free-roaming kids of an early morn has made you shudder, Oakfield is usually able to use one field for families with children and another for adults without, so slumber/early morning mania are both undisturbed. Canine campers with good manners are also welcome on site.
Oakfield is a back to basics site, with four simple flushing toilets (toilet rolls, hand wash and hand towels are provided), a small but adequately spaced electric shower with changing room and hot water hand wash basin, and two small but hot gas showers added in 2016.
Logs and kindling are for sale on site as well as small gas cylinders and barbecue packs (or you can pre-order sausages, bacon, burgers and steak from the owners). For other campfire supplies, the petrol station within five minutes’ walk has most of the essentials (beer, wine, barbecue bits) and bigger shops and supermarkets are about ten minutes’ drive away in Hailsham.
Open from 01/05/2017 to 28/08/2017
Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
