The pathway to your pitch

General

  • Wild site in peaceful woodland on the Sussex Weald
  • Five minutes' drive to East Grinstead shops, pubs and Bluebell 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 Woodland Campsite: 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’ drive 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 half-hour 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.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

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

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Perfect New Year's Eve escape from the crowds07/01/2020

    Chris, the owner, texted earlier in the day to confirm our arrival, which was helpful and reassuring.
    On arrival we got a very warm welcome from 3 dogs and Chris. He took our gear to the pitch and delivered water and wood, and gave us good guidance on local area and other queries. Generally a very helpful and kind person, especially having to deal with us noobie campers on New Years Eve!
    Spending the night by the fire and waking up surrounded by trees and wildlife was a fantastic and memorable experience.

    Solitude, trees and surroundings. Great that the dog could have his own little adventure around my camp. Great that they allow fires in fire pits and provide wood as well. Nice to have Chris meet me at the gate, and to drop me off at my camp site as it is awkward to carry stuff to and from a car. Cracking location with long forest and field walks just out of the campsite. No need to cross any roads and so peaceful and easy to wake up and walk the dog.

Nice site for wildish camping, too muddy in November02/12/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Oak Tree non-electric forest floor tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Very helpful friendly owner Chris.
    Wood supplied for the fire was nice and dry, water also supplied for putting fire out.
    Will certainly be returning to the campsite in the summer, beautiful views and stories round the campfire!

    Disliked: 

    The hill pitches are incredibly muddy, we got a car stuck in the mud so had to get towed out.
    Local pub was nearby but on dark road with no path so high-vis and torches needed to be safe. Paths are there but mud logged.
    Camping in Nov is always going to be wet, but too much mud - would have been nice to have been warned not to park on the field.

    Great that you have your own clearing and fire pit. It had a real wild camping feel to it. It is also hammock friendly.

    Disliked: 

    As it attracts groups, it was a little noisy at night.

Amazing wild camping, will return.07/11/2019

  • Liked: 

    Chris was really helpful in taking our stuff to the pitch and picking us up. He provided a water canister with plenty of water for our 3 day stay and plenty of dry wood for the fire.
    This is as close to wild camping as you can get, fires are allowed and there’s plenty of wildlife to listen to if a night time. We were lucky that we were the only people staying at the site so no noise except the guy fawkes fireworks.

    There is a public footpath that leads to a lovely pub with great food and service.
    And the composting toilets are kept clean and have electric light and are surprisingly warm for November.

    Well worth a stay if you like to camp wild!

    Disliked: 

    If you are bringing young children the site is quite large so best to get a pitch nearer the toilets!

Local attractions

While you’re in East Grinstead, grab a ticket to ride the Bluebell 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 monty, from fishing to windsurfing and kayaking to paddleboarding.
