St Ives Farm has many visiting families, couples and groups who return year on year. It is a relaxed space where you can explore the land and get away from the demands of modern life.
St Ives Farm has three fields and two fishing lakes which are stocked with perch, tench and roach. Please bring your own fishing equipment and a licence. There are Portakabin toilets between the top fields with a larger and more spacious toilet and shower block in the lower field. Attached to the shower block are sinks and work surfaces for dish washing.
Campfires may be built in existing firepits and chopped wood can be purchased daily at 6pm.

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 make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
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.

St Ives Farm is situated north west of Hartfield village. From Hartfield, take the B2026 towards Edenbridge. After 1 mile turn left into Butcherfield Lane, you will find the entrance to St Ives Farm after approximately half a mile.
The nearest station is East Grinstead where you can get a taxi which takes 20 minutes. The 191 bus runs from the station to Hartfield and then it's a 20-minute walk to the campsite.
St Ives Farm is in the Ashdown Forest which is the largest free public access space in the south east. One of our great walks is over to Hartfield and Pooh Corner, the home of Winnie-the-Pooh.
Other attractions are Groombridge, Hever Castle, Chartwell, Bolbroke House, Spa Valley Railway, Sheffield House and a nearby Ashdown Forest Llama Park. Ashdown Forest provides much in the way of activity outings:
Walking: St Ives Farm sits right on the High Weald Landscape Trail from which many glorious walks branch out in all directions leading to local pubs where you can find great food.
Cycling: A bridle path from the site offers access to the Forest Way - a designated cycle route along the disused Tunbridge Wells to East Grinstead railway line.
Climbing: The High Rocks and Harrisons Rocks are famous soft rock features which are nearby, while the Evolution Climbing Wall is a fantastic indoor climbing adventure perfect for beginners and kids.
Golf: Nestling in the Ashdown Forest are some fine golf courses such as Royal Ashdown and Holtye Golf course.
