Beautiful site

General

  • Working farm at the head of the Cuckmere Valley on the Weald Way
  • Sausages, bacon and free-range eggs available on site
  • Near Drusillas Park, Knock Hatch Adventure Park and the South Downs

‘Fantastic’, ‘amazing, ‘beautiful countryside’, ‘lovely location’, ‘A little slice of tranquillity hidden away in the East-Sussex countryside’… book a break at Hale Farm Campsite to add your own experience of this lovely little place in England’s south east.

Both site and surroundings come in for excellent accolades from former guests: the site's green, peaceful and family-friendly setting, and the location on the Weald Way at the head of the Cuckmere Valley. There’s easy access from here to the South Downs National Park, High Weald and the coast to explore by car, bike or on foot… or you could cart the kids to Drusillas Park 15 minutes’ drive away, or to the coast at Brighton and Hastings within 45 minutes. The farm is five minutes’ drive from Chiddingly, within walking distance of a village shop and two recommended pubs.

Guests of all ages are most welcome to meet the Hale Farm donkeys, pedigree flocks of Lleyn and Ryeland sheep, pygmy goats, ponies, free-range chickens, geese and ducks, all of whom can be greeted and fed daily. As a working farm, fresh eggs and home-produced sausages and bacon are also available to buy… and yes, campfires are allowed.

The site has a spacious accommodation field with no set pitches, alongside well-kept amenities of hot showers and compost toilets. And the final, excellent, little touch? The friendly Hale Farm owner visits pitches every day with logs, kindling and barbecue packs for sale – you might see that as worthy of a glowing review or two too…

    The peacefulness is what first struck us at Hale Farm, also because the pitches are huge you don’t feel like you are on top of other campers. There is plenty of green open space and fantastic woodland for the children to explore. Also a nice touch that the farmyard is open in the morning for the children to watch what goes on. We enjoyed using the fire pits every evening and found it very relaxing to just sit around and chat. They have a great policy in place for the site to be quiet after 10pm, so if you’re after a restful nights sleep then this is the site for you. There is very little mobile phone reception in the area and we found it was great to switch off from social media and the constant pinging of mobile phones! Toilets are composting, but don’t let this put you off...they are cleaned several times a day. Showers are also clean and we didn’t have any problem waiting to use them. An ice cream can came on site early evening, they serve delicious proper ice cream...no nasty fake whippy ice cream!! All Covid19 safety measures are in place and everyone seemed to abide by them. This was our first camping experience without electric hook up and we honestly didn’t miss it.
    We will definitely come back next year!

    The size of the pitches, the farm and the amazing hosts. This was our second year here, we love the friendliness of the hosts, the fact that you can have a fire is brilliant and the children (and myself) always enjoy visiting the farm. You can buy fire wood and eggs, bacon and sausages from the sitecwhich always helps and the bacon is DELICIOUS 😋 ! This will definitely be a campsite we will visit repeatedly for the foreseeable future.

    We enjoyed every minute but maybe suggest a few more steps for the children as the toilets are a bit high for them

Local attractions

What a lot there is to do around here… and that’s just the strolls, hikes and bike rides around the High Weald and the South Downs National Park…

This is spectacular wildlife-watching land too, such as at Arlington Reservoir (10 minutes’ drive), for spotting geese, cormorants, grebes and black swans around the waters and from the birdhide. There’s also the hillside around the huge chalk figure of the Long Man of Wilmington 20 minutes away and spying the inhabitants of the surrounding Cuckmere valley and nearby Cuckoo Trail. Access the Cuckoo Trail 10 minutes’ drive away at Hailsham for a pedal along its 14-mile route from  Heathfield to Eastbourne Park.

Other options are Blackberry Farm Park (five minutes), the Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare (10 minutes) and Spring Barn Farm (25 minutes). For arty types, Farley Farm House, home of surrealists Lee Miller and Roland Penrose and visited by the likes of Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, has its gallery within a few minutes’ drive of the farm.

Those with a head for history have plenty to browse around hereabouts too, such as Michelham Priory (10 minutes), Herstmonceux and Lewes castles (both 20 minutes), and vintage rides on the Bluebell Railway, accessed half an hour away in Sheffield Park.
