  • Back to basics farm camping under the South Downs
  • Clean facilities including a shower and flushing loos
  • Five minutes' walk from supplies and 10 minutes' drive from town

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 29 April to 31 August
