General

  • Wild site in peaceful woodland on the Sussex Weald
  • Five minutes drive to East Grinstead shops and pubs, Blue Bell railway
  • 10 minutes to Ashdown Forest and 20 to Ardingly Activity Centre

Walk in the steps of Winnie the Pooh on this wild woodland patch of the Sussex Weald.

There’s a touch of drama about checking into Evergreen Farm Camping: you make your way to a spot 150 metres from the main site, and you won’t see anything except the trees. A quad bike with a trailer roars down the path to pick up your stuff and take it to a tiny, peaceful site in 10 acres of ancient woodland. With sleeping among the trees, cooking on firepits and listening to the birds, you could be in the wilderness... but you’re five minutes’ walk from town and 40-odd miles from London.

It’s a simple site, focused on peace and quiet in the natural surroundings. Guests have two compost toilets to use; 25-litre containers of drinking water are provided, and firewood can be obtained from the farm (affording a chance to meet the sheep, pigs, goats and horses).

A 10-minute walk or a five-minute drive and you’re in East Grinstead, an attractive medieval town well furnished with pubs, eats and supermarkets. The site is also within walking distance of Standen House, an arts and crafts home with William Morris interiors and eye-catching hillside gardens. Nature tamed: a neat contrast with your wild wood accommodation.

Quiet woodland, poor facilities. Will not return. 04/11/2018

    Camping in quiet woods, seclusion [perhaps not secluded in summer]. Campfire.

    Disliked: 

    Check in time of 2pm - 8pm. By the time we'd pitched up, not much left of the day.
    The notice requesting campers not to take toilet rolls.
    One of the two naturally composting toilets had no toilet paper. There was no running water only gel.
    The notice requesting campers to use gel sparingly.
    Lack of washing facilities [for face and dish washing.
    Poor value for the amount charged.
    How does this site attract such fantastic reviews?

From the manager...

We can't please everyone !

Local attractions

While you’re in East Grinstead, grab a ticket to ride the Blue Bell Railway, where restored steam locomotives take you on a 40-minute tour of the Weald countryside finishing up in Sheffield Park. There's acres of landscaped gardens, parks and woodland to wander round there, and a lake to picnic by.

Walkers and climbers congregate at Stone Hill Rock (15 minutes’ drive), a geological oddity of sandstone crags ripe for clambering up and hiking around. Equally stuffed with trails for the curious is Ashdown Forest (10 minutes), a mix of deep woods and open heathland home to deer, adders, nightjars and a certain famous bear. Make for Pooh Sticks Bridge for the must-do activity on the river stream (20 minutes from site) and seek out Five Hundred Acre Wood to see where it all started. Furry friends of a different kind can be encountered at the llama park 15 minutes from the site.

No deer at Deer Leap Park (five minutes) ,but mountain bikers have 240 acres of trails and slopes and scrambles to cycle up, down and off; hire bikes here if you haven't brought your own. If water’s more your thing, Ardingly Activity Centre (20 minutes) has the aquatic full onmty, from fishing to windsurfing and kayaking to paddleboarding.
