Stud Farm: Exterior

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.

Please note

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

There are no bins onsite: all rubbish will need to be taken home with you.

At least one of the party members must be aged 16 or over.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Please note that all rubbish must be taken home with you.

    Great campsite with some fantastic views, can even see the sea! Stayed during the week, and on the first couple of nights seemed to be quite a few people but pitches spread out enough that noise didn’t travel. Showers and toilets well looked after. Would definitely stay there again and recommend.

Beautiful location, good for country and coastal hiking.15/06/2021

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful location with a gorgeous view down to the coast from the camping field (once the rolling sea mist had lifted!). Lots of farm animals in the surrounding fields and the sound of larks to wake you up in the morning. Hiking route directly down to the seafront in ~30 mins. One (clean) toilet/shower block which can get a bit busy at the weekends. Excellent sausages and hamburgers available to buy directly from the owners. No campsite reception, but the owner regularly visited the field and also messaged us before arrival to confirm which camping pitch we had reserved, which was really helpful.

    The toilets were really quite far from the bell tents, really I think a 2nd block is needed at the other end. The website still advises to bring you're own bedding due to covid, which we did only to find that it was provided

    Really lovely big pitches, beautiful views, big space for kids to play and very clean facilities. Great location for the beach and visiting nearby Lewes. Attracts experienced campers which is nice because they tend to be more understanding and considerate than newbies. Definitely recommend.

    Disliked: 

    Think the signage that suggests people don't wash up during peak shower times needs to be clearer as it was ignored a lot of the time meaning no water pressure. Obviously would be great to improve the water pressure overall but saw that this was something you were going to do anyway.

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)
