We’d say this is ‘back to basics camping’, but that doesn’t explain why guests of all ilks are generally blown away by this fab little farm site, where the owners offer ‘camping as it used to be’, surrounded by so much nature it’ll take your breath away…
If noisy clubhouses, the kids glued to their consoles and being so close to other campers you can hear them snore puts the wind up you, Freshwinds Camping might just be a breath of fresh air: it’s in a secluded spot on a 200-acre farm between Rye and Hastings deep in the East Sussex countryside, has pitches spacious enough to spread around on and dishes up nature by the bucketload.
Rabbits, badgers, squirrels, weasels, foxes, field mice and a growing bird population can all be seen around the campsite and farm by day; at night, spotting foxes and barn owls should be a hoot.
More domestically, the farm has a herd of 30 suckler cows and a flock of 130 ewes which lamb in March and April, horses and their owners cantering about in the livery yard, and hens laying brown eggs for sale to fry up for breakfast.
The campsite is surrounded by a small stream, woodland and fields. Guests can usually drive their cars to field pitches to unpack their kit before parking in the car park, but if you’re camping in the woodland glade, the farm team will provide a wheelbarrow to get things back and forth as the glade is only accessible by foot.
Campfires are allowed – of course – but please use the same places as previous campers to minimise any impact on local plants. Logs are available to buy from the Freshwinds Farm team, as well as jam, cakes and the aforementioned eggs; the village of Pett – and three pubs – is within a mile.
No adult groups of more than 4 people. This is a campsite geared towards couples and families.
