Ditchling Camping: Wonderful open site with views of the South Downs in the background

General

  • Dog-friendly site in the peaceful South Downs National Park
  • A 25-minute drive from Brighton; 15 minutes to Devil’s Dyke
  • Adventure trail, swing tree and places for den making on site; firepit

Bunker down at Ditchling Camping, a dog-friendly site in the South Downs National Park. A 25-minute drive from Brighton and its busy coast, this site rests in the historic village of Ditchling, surrounded by vineyards, bumpy countryside and great views.

If the whole family is tagging along, there is much to play with around the site, including an adventure trail through the woodlands around site, a swing tree and places to fashion your own little dens.

The site is only a five-minute drive (or a 50-minute walk) from the traditional Jack and Jill windmills and its neighbouring family-run pub serving good ales and grub. There’s also a vineyard 15 minutes’ walk away from the site, good for wine-tasting tours, or you can simply pedal past country lanes on the surrounding cycling routes (hire a bike locally if you may).

On your route, stop by the characterful Ditchling, home to local craftspeople and winemakers. Here, there is a nice selection of independent shops, cosy cafés and pubs that will ladle you a good serving of Sussex food, all within a ten-minute walk.

Back on site, end the day with an intimate evening beside the firepits. Things are kept nicely straightforward on site with warm showers and a separate dishwashing area.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comment - I quite agree. We have ordered 3 panels of split chestnut fencing (very attractive and rustic), but due to Covid it is taking a while to arrive. Due to be installed next week
