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.

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.
