Wimbles Farm offers riverside camping set deep in the Sussex countryside. Our site has two camping areas, each with their own firepit.

Why not try a unique private camping experience with friends or family in a quiet, secluded flower meadow beside the river or lake? We offer camping for people who want to experience the great outdoors by themselves and who maybe secretly want to do a little Ray Mears-ing about.

We provide fresh drinking water, a compost toilet, solar shower, seasonal organic produce from the farm, a wheelbarrow to move equipment, a barbecue grid to go over the firepit. Sustainably coppiced wood for your fire can be purchased to make a perfect evening under the stars.

This unusual camping experience is perfect for those who want to be well away from busy campsites and enjoy the peace of the countryside.

Guests can get fishing instruction from the site owner at £10 per hour for a group of three people, including tuition and hire of equipment. This can be booked on arrival. The normal fishing charges are £20 per person per day from 10am till 4pm including a maximum of three pegs. Your fishing equipment must be sterilised otherwise you will need to hire it from us. Our lake is naturally stocked with carp, bream, perch, pike, tench, rudd and roach, and no licence to fish is required.

Open from 1 May to 31 Oct
