- Situated in the South Downs National Park and on the South Downs Trail
- Wetherdown Lodge, Camping, Yurts, Walking Breaks, Group & Events
- 55 acres to explore in a beautiful peaceful location
Our small campsite & Eco Lodge are in a peaceful open space, surrounded by trees. We welcome individuals, families, cyclists, walkers, group expeditions, companies and wedding groups.
We encourage guests to enjoy nature and the natural environment, and we hope you will find it peaceful and relaxing. We promote the values of The Sustainability Centre, providing wooden built compost toilets, solar heated showers. We encourage recycling and low impact on the campsite and in the 55 acres of land; supplying wood for sale and only allowing vehicle access close to the campground.
We have 12 camping pitches in total. Our main camping area accommodates 7 family sized tents, and there are a further 4 camping bays for those who prefer more seclusion. We have 2 fire pits on our campsite so that you can enjoy a campfire under the stars, and we sell bags of firewood from our Eco-Lodge and main reception.
Our facilities include a solar shower block with 3 showers and a washing up area in a straw bale building. We have 2 compost toilets.
We also have 3 incredible Yurts available for hire.
Our Yurts and shower block are only available in our summer months (1st April - 31st October). We do have winter camping available (1st November to 31st March), but there are no showers, just a compost toilet and standpipe for drinking water.

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.

From Old Winchester Hill
Continue on the road from Old Winchester Hill to Clanfield after three miles we are on the right.
A3 from London/Petersfield
Shortly after Queen Elizabeth Country Park, take a left turn - sign posted Clanfield. The road then doubles back under the A3. Now follow directions as 'from Clanfield' (see below.)
A3 from Portsmouth/Horndean
Take the first turning sign posted Clanfield - there is a windmill on the hill to the right (now see from Clanfield)
From A3 take the road into Clanfield. At the Rising Sun Pub turn right ( there is a brown sign signposted The Sustainability Centre). Follow the road for about 2 miles - the last mile is up hill through woods. At the top of the hill turn left by a cottage onto the Droxford Road. Continue for about 400 yrd and the Centre is on the left
By Public Transport/Taxi
There is (sadly) NO bus route passing the Centre.
Our nearest train station is Petersfield about 7 miles, from which you can catch buses to East Meon or Clanfield (both about 2miles from the Centre). Buses from Petersfield are the 52 or 67 to East Meon and the 37 to Clanfield (get off at the Rising Sun Pub if you intend to walk). You can also catch the 41/X41 from Portsmouth to Clanfield.
On foot from Clanfield
(About 2.5 miles/ 45 mins) From the Rising Sun Pub in Clanfield head up East Meon Road, which is brown signposted for the Sustainability Centre. After about 150m take Little Hyden Lane on your right hand side. Follow LH Road all the way up -it turns into a byway and finally into a footpath. Where the path becomes a footpath there is a bridleway going off to the right- do not take it! Continue straight up the hill on the footpath through the woods, and finally along the edge of a field at the outskirts of the wood. The footpath meets the South Downs Way on the brow of the hill. Follow the SDW to the left until you reach the Sustainability Centre.
The Sustainability Centre
We are right on the South Downs Way National Trail, at the heart of the South Downs National Park. We are a few miles walk from Butser Hill, Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Old Winchester Hill and East Meon. Just a 30 minute drive to Portsmouth Gunwharf Quay and historic dockyard and the old city of Winchester.
