- Camping on the South Downs Way, with use of all Hostel Facilities.
Truleigh Hill is a Youth Hostel but there are plenty of grounds to be able to pitch a tent. As part of the price of the pitch you would have full access to the hostel facilities such as showers, toilets, self-catering kitchen and dining area. As well as having the option for breakfast, packed lunch or evening meal and why not have a bottle of beer or glass of wine.

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.

Being right on the South Downs Way, Truleigh Hill offers direct access to miles of beautiful countryside in what is now England's newest National Park. With panoramic views, you can see the River Adur winding down to the sea at Shoreham, three miles south of Truleigh, where you can enjoy the family-friendly beach and all that a small harbour town can offer.
Devil's Dyke is only a couple of miles walk away, an historic summit dropping steeply away to the pretty village of Fulking, and is very popular for hang-gliding or simply stopping for a drink at the pub!
Walk the South Downs Way to visit the ancient historical sites of Cissbury Ring and Chanctonbury Ring, taking in pretty villages on the way, such as Steyning with its Norman church, traditional Sussex architecture, lovely cafes and shops.
The tranquility you will find at the top of Truleigh Hill and across the Downs is in contrast to the abundance of activities available in nearby Brighton, just 10 miles away.
