General

  • Spacious working farm site on the Kent and East Sussex border
  • Half an hour’s drive from Camber Sands
  • Campfires, pick your own pitches, maze and adventure playground

Pitch up at Park Farm Caravan and Camping for pitchside campfires galore plus piles of spectacular wide open space around which to cycle, fly kites and let the kids (and dogs) run wild.

Set on a working farm in a peaceful rural spot on the border between Kent and East Sussex, this site is bordered by a little river and surrounded by miles upon miles of handsome countryside; for days out off site, the swell little seaside resort of Camber Sands is a handy half an hour’s drive away, and attractions like the Kent and Sussex Railway, Bodiam Castle and Bedgebury Pinetum are within a short drive too.

Back at base, there’s heaps of stuff to keep guests of all ages amply amused all day long, like a maize maze to get thoroughly lost in and free fishing into the neighbouring river direct from the site.

For kids there’s a partially fenced adventure playground with a trim trail, a play fort and a big slide for small folk to let off steam at. For rainy day, the open-sided barn is furnished with more fun-based bits, like a seesaw and other kit and games.

When peckish or thirsty head over to the site’s so-called ‘barn on wheels’ – out of its hatch are served drinks and locally sourced produce. Otherwise, head to the neighbouring pub for a feed or an afternoon pint of guest ale.

After a feed, it’s a splendid idea to have an amble around the farm to goggle its resident cows, sheep, donkeys and horses. The site owners actively maintain natural habitats to keep local wildlife happy, so while out and walking around one might well catch sight of some native critters too, from deer, barn owls and lots of other bird species to plenty of butterflies and insects.

Great site to go to for a good camping experience 10/28/2018

  • Liked: 

    Nice camp site with lots of room. People working there were nice and helpful answering any question/needs had. We stayed on the electric pitch and had no issues. set up camp fires both nights we were there adding to the experience.

    Site had very good facilities (toilets/showers/cleaning sink), nice, clean and seemed quite new.The showers were big and long but only had one hook and no shelves to put clothes or washing things on so had to put some stuff on floor, which was not ideal.

    Good adventure play ground for kids with different things to go on. The camp shop was closed when we were there so cant comment on that and worth considering that when bringing supplies as shop is not available all season.

    The local pub was nice and about a 20 to 30 min walk depending on your walking speed and the path was easy to follow.

    Was very happy with site and we all had a great time, definitely recommend to go to.

Good clean facilities, safe, quiet in October. 10/27/2018

  • Liked: 

    Good facilities with everything you need. The freedom to pitch your tent where you like is great, you can pick the spot best suited to you. Also, we saw the wardens do a driving patrol which is great because you still have privacy but also have a sense of safety as well. Logs are for sale so you can easily have a small fire to keep you warm which is great for October camping.

    Disliked: 

    Could hear the road nearby by but it was still incredibly quiet so not something we disliked really, more of a comment.

Directions

Local attractions

The plentiful paths that lie around the site also link up with other local footpaths, like the one that runs beside the river to Bodiam Castle, about 20 minutes’ amble away.

At Bewl Water you can go sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and cycling, or you can head to the
shingle stretches at Camber Sands for windsurfing and jetskiing at Cooden beach near Bexhill. If angling’s more your sort of water-based pursuit, fish free of charge for chub and roach from the site, or head to the nearby fish farm.

For a spot of local history, visit National Trust properties like Sissinghurst Castle, Cranbrook, Smallhythe Place, Scotney Castle and Batemans; should you instead fancy being ferried around, all aboard at Bodiam the Kent and East Sussex Railway.
