Housedean Farm Campsite is within the South Downs National Park and directly on the South Downs Way. We are uniquely located for walkers of the South Downs because there is no need to deviate from the national trail at the end of the day. Some of the most popular spots on the Downs are within an easy walk (Ditchling Beacon, Firle Beacon, Devil's Dyke).
We pride ourselves on a laid back atmosphere and there are amazing views of the South Downs from every pitch. There are 23 spacious pitches, each with its own firepit for campfires.
A frequent bus service stops directly outside the campsite and runs to and from Brighton and Lewes. This makes the site great for those wishing to visit Brighton without the cost and difficulty of parking.
The site has excellent flushing loos (that we keep scrupulously clean!) and three hot showers in separate wooden enclosures (one of which is open air). There are also two washing-up sinks.

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.

If travelling east on the A27, go past Sussex University and the football stadium and continue for approximately one mile. Soon after emerging from a tunnel of trees you will see a bridge crossing the main A27. Turn left immediately after the bridge and Housedean Farm is located just off the road on the right.
If travelling west on the A27, go past the Newmarket Inn and turn left off the A27 approximately half a mile (before the bridge over the road). Go over the bridge and follow signs to Housedean Farm.
Lewes is located four miles away and is easily reachable by bus or car. Alternatively there is a cycle path from the campsite to Lewes or it is possible to walk over the Downs. Brighton is approximately seven miles away, and buses run from the campsite. All major attractions within the eastern half of the South Downs are within easy driving distance.
