Beautiful field site

General

  • Spacious back to basics site in the South Downs National Park
  • Within half an hour's drive of Chichester and Portsmouth
  • Next to woodland with fab views; half an hour's walk from local pub

A secluded, simple site in the middle of the South Downs National Park? Splendid. Those who look for space and fine views while on hol should consider a stay at Clarefield Copse Wild Camping, in a quiet corner of rural Hampshire 15 minutes’ drive from Petersfield.

As you might expect from a spot inside a national park, the views from here are pretty fab – as is the amount of space around the place from which to admire them. The owners have kept things low key so as not to interfere with their natural surrounds, simply installing toilets (regularly cleaned) and a drinking water supply, leaving plenty of open space to play games, light a barbie and construct a campfire. If you're new to the art of this last, learn firebuilding and other outdoor skills at the site's bushcraft classes: contact the site once booked for further information.

Bike rides and walks are top activities around these parts – start by taking a wander by the lake next to the site or on local footpaths, or, just maybe, strolling to the nearest pub in half an hour or so. Many a mile of trail runs through the national park, and there’s much more strolling to be done in nearby National Trust properties or on day trips to Chichester and Portsmouth (both half an hour away by car).

    Beautiful site, the managers were lovely and everything went smoothly even though we arrived a little later than planned. Clean toilets

    Disliked: 

    The facilities are fairly basic - effectively some portaloos and a water tap. We knew that when we booked, though, so it's not so much a criticism as something to note when booking

    Lovely, quiet location. Plenty of space to be able to pitch up without being close to anyone else. Local farm shop/market open on Friday and Saturdays, good for getting coffee, cakes and meat.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately didn’t have bins to be able to dispose of rubbish easily.

    Beautiful location - stunning walks and views all around. Was glad there was a tap at the site despite it not being noted on the ad on Pitchup.

    Disliked: 

    The portaloos were in great need of a clean, almost unbareable smell. Wild camping vibes, fine for one night but probably not more for us!

Excellent site in a beautiful location09/20/2020

  • Liked: 

    Loved the campsite, it was spacious with plenty of space between pitches. The facilities were basic but clean and adequate as per the wild camping description. We opted for the fire pit and logs and as it was a chilly night, it really made a difference. There is no light pollution so the stars were fantastic as was the view over to Harting Down and the ridge of the South Downs Way. The owners came by to check us in and drop off logs and were really nice. We would definitely stay here again.

    Disliked: 

    There was one noisy group on the site who played loud music until rather late, but we think they were told to quieten down, so we did get a good nights sleep. Bit of a pain but did not put us off how lovely the site was. Still giving it 5 stars.

Local attractions

Folk who’ve invested in a National Trust membership can surely get their money’s worth out of this area: aim for 18th-century Uppark House (10 minutes’ drive), wander around Woolbeding Gardens (10 minutes) and admire the art collection at Petworth House (half an hour) - tipped to be one of the finest in the NT’s possession. (Or try Hinton Ampner, Slindon Estate, Winkworth Arboretum…)

There’s a whole load more history to see down by the coast, too. If it’s maritime times gone by that interest you, head to Portsmouth to potter around the historic dockyard and mosey around the Mary Rose Museum (or, for something more modern, sail up the Emirates Spinnaker Tower to see the sea from 170 metres up). Weald & Downland Living Museum (20 minutes) is a fab place for a glimpse into real life from days of yore.

If you’re simply planning to fill your break with lots of rural rambles, perhaps it’s a wise idea to lay in supplies for a restorative drink upon your return? Langham Brewery (20 minutes) is worth a visit for a tour of the steam-powered brewery, and there are local vinos to pick up at Trotton Estate (10 minutes) and Upperton Vineyards (20 minutes).

Must see

  • Uppark House and Garden (3.3 miles)
  • West Dean Gardens (6.7 miles)
