Stud Farm: Grass pitches on site (photo added by manager on 22/08/2022)

General

  • Peaceful back-to-basics rural site in the village of Telscombe
  • Just off the South Downs Way and 30 minutes' walk to the beach
  • Organic meat and free-range eggs available to buy from the farm

‘The Downs… too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness, if only they would look.’ Thus sighed author (and former local resident) Virginia Woolf in her diary back in 1937. Little has changed around here in the intervening years – if you’d like to look for yourself, settle in at Stud Farm, just outside Telscombe in the South Downs National Park.

And what views they are from here – a patchwork of woods and farmland tumbling down to the south coast. There aren’t any marked pitches so just pick your spot and commence the fine activity of staring out to sea. Campfires directly on the ground aren’t permitted but you can hire a firepit or barbecue for warmth and eats.

Crank your evening’s gawping up a notch or two with an alfresco feast direct from the farm, which can supply tasty treats for your grill, including home-reared pork and lamb. Marshmallows (not home-reared but still essential firepit fodder) are available for dessert. While you’re there, pick up one of their breakfast hampers so you can get your morning off to a champion start with bangers and free-range eggs.

Facilities are kept basic here to maintain the site’s peaceful vibe – you’ll have access to toilets, a couple of showers and drinking water. If you’d like to immerse yourself in water it’s a half-hour stroll down to the nearest beach, where you can launch yourself into the sea for a refreshing dip.

    The grill to put on top of the fire pit only fit nicely when the fire was very flat/small, made it slightly more complicated to cook food. Fire pits perfect for cooking marshmallows and general enjoyment though.

    The beautiful location and sea view. The toilet and shower block were lovely and clean. Friendly staff.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately during our visit the shower was only delivering luke warm water which was a little disappointing as we don’t have hot water in our campervan and therefore book sites that offer hot showers. I’m not sure if this is an ongoing problem.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review and appreciation of location and staff. Sorry for the disappointment with the showers. Unfortunately the water temperature can be affected by the low pressure which we do our very best to warn people about it. We are doing everything we can to resolve this issue

Local attractions

To see more of those views, get your boots on and head out onto the South Downs Way, which passes very close by. Hardy souls can tackle the route’s full 100-mile length, while casual ramblers can choose a shorter section. A popular attraction along the route is the chalk figure of the Long Man of Wilmington, a tall lad indeed at 72 metres. It’s a four-hour walk to see him, or you could drive there in around half an hour.

Heading south, a 15-minute walk takes you down to the coast path, where you can continue your stroll to the stretch of shingle at Saltdean. The pier, beach and historic buildings of Brighton are around a half-hour drive away. If you’re feeling particularly active you can walk there in around two hours and then hire a kayak or paddleboard to take to the sea.

If you’d like to see the place that inspired Virginia Woolf to wax lyrical about the area, visit her country retreat, Monk’s House, an hour’s walk from the site.

There are family-friendly attractions galore around here, too – it'll take you around half an hour to drive to the steam-powered Bluebell Railway, or to Drusillas Park.

Must see

  • Brighton Marina (4.0 miles)
  • Volks Railway (5.4 miles)
  • Brighton Sea Life Centre (5.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Monk's House (2.2 miles)
  • Alfriston Clergy House (7.2 miles)
