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.

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
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.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
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.

Brand new for 2014 our shepherd's hut provides accommodation for 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 16. Features a double bed and separate bunk room accessed from the rear of the hut with 2' x 6' beds. We provide the bed linen and duvet for the double bed and sleeping bags with cotton liners for children.
The hut is an ideal romantic getaway for couples looking to escape to the countryside or for families that don’t quite do camping.
Features a kitchenette with gas cooker, dining area and a unique recycled woodstove, hot shower cubicle (bring towels).
The hut has its own eco-compost toilet nearby and a Kampa Khazi for night time.
In summer evenings enjoy a glass of wine around a campfire in the river meadow while the children are tucked up in bed. The shepherd's hut is positioned at the top of the river meadow, distanced from the campers. We provide a welcome pack which usually includes fresh farm eggs, bread, butter, milk, cereal and some fire wood to get you started.
Please note that dogs are not allowed with bookings for the shepherd's hut. One dog is allowed free of charge only if sleeping in the car. Dogs are strictly forbidden from entering the hut.
