Set on our working farm in a peaceful rural location.
Park Farm has fantastic open spaces - great for kite flying, cycling and burning off calories!
We serve a wide range of drinks and locally sourced produce in our "barn on wheels" farm cafe catering trailer.
There is also a partially fenced children's play area with a play fort and large slide, trim trail for older kids and wings, see-saw and other games in our open sided barn, ideal for rainy days.
If you walk around the farm you may see cows, sheep, donkeys and horses. There is also an abundance of wildlife including deer, barn owls and other species of birds, butterflies and insects.
We are participating in the Countryside Stewardship Scheme trying to maintain natural habitats for wildlife.
Walks, Fishing and Wildlife
Guests can walk around both the campsite and the surrounding fields. We ask guests to respect the Countryside Code and remember that we are a working farm.
Paths on the farm link up with other local footpaths. Fairytale Bodiam Castle is a lovely 20 minute walk along the riverbank.
Campsite guests can fish for free in the river Rother from the campsite grounds - bring your own fishing gear. Catches include chub and roach. There are many surrounding fishing lakes for serious sport fishermen.
Bodiam is a 20 minute riverside walk from the farm. Why not have a cuppa in the local tearooms or pop in to the local gift shop in the Castle. The Curlew Inn and Restaurant is located only a mile from our park
Many National Trust properties are within easy reach. These include the wonderful gardens at Sissinghurst Castle, Cranbrook, Smallhythe Place at Tenterden, Scotney Castle at Lamberhurst and Batemans in Burwash.
The Kent and East Sussex Railway operating between Bodiam and Tenterden is a
popular attraction for families and a must see for steam railway enthusiasts,
Don't forget the Spa Valley Railway at Tunbridge Wells or Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railways. Into Sussex, the famous Bluebell Railway is well worth a visit. Most railways hold special event weekends and dining services.
The famous gardens at Great Dixter are a short drive away. You should also visit other popular gardens such as Pashley Manor Gardens at Ticehurst and Merriments Gardens at Hurst Green. Historic buildings and houses nearby include Hever Castle and Battle Abbey.
The South East is becoming well-known for its vineyards and the quality its English wines. Carr Taylor Vineyards offers tastings and tours. Lamberhurst Vineyard has a childrens' zoo. You will also find many farm shops and markets throughout the region selling locally grown produce.
Hawkhurst Fish Farm is only a short distance from our park. Daily fishing permits are available. Fishing and water sports fans can also head off to Bewl Water. Here you can enjoy sailing, canoeing, wind-surfing and cycling.
Camber Sands with its fantastic sandy beaches is only 15 miles away, great for sandcastles and a family day at the beach. Shingle beaches stretch for much of the coast. Several beaches, including Cooden Beach near Bexhill are popular with wind surfers and jet skiers.

From the manager...
We take the enjoyment of all of our campers very seriously and unfortunately one group can spoil it for everyone else on site.
We have a rule that after dark music is turned off and voices are kept to a minimum and we employ a security guard to ensure that the peace and quiet is kept for everyone on our campsite. This group were asked politely on two occasions to keep the noise down, however they did not respond as they had been drinking and this resulted in the security guard having to raise his voice.
We aim to run a relaxed family friendly site, where you can enjoy the pleasures of sitting around a campfire at night.
