Damson Field Rustic Camping: Full-sized pitches with generous spacing

General

  • Pop-up meadow camping overlooking Bodiam Castle in rural East Sussex
  • A 20-minute drive to Sissinghurst Castle Garden and Go Ape Bedgebury
  • Wildlife on site; easy walk to pubs; stately homes and beaches nearby

Damson Field Rustic Camping is a small and peaceful pop-up site set in a 10-acre field in East Sussex countryside, overlooking Bodiam Castle and near the village of Ewhurst Green. The vibe here is very much all about nature, so you can camp among fruit trees and relish the wildlife and seclusion.

Owners Terry and Lynda (ably assisted by the ever-smiling Nathan) welcome you to cosy up around the campfire, light the barbecue, toast marshmallows or simply chill with a book.

If you take a stroll around the ancient orchard at sunset, you might be lucky enough to spot badgers, deer and pheasants, and after dark you can watch the stars glittering in the night sky. There are a handful of traditional pubs in Bodiam village (20 minutes’ walk, no need to take the car) if you feel like upping the pace.

As this is wild camping, there is no electricity but separate portaloos and a standpipe with fresh water are available. Kindling and firelighters are provided for a small charge, and you can borrow firepits on site.

A few site rules: no ball games please, and noise is to be kept to an absolute minimum between 11pm and 8am to allow all guests to get a well-earned night’s sleep. The owners ask that you take all your rubbish home with you too.

    The location of the field was perfect with a great view of Bodiam Castle and the surrounding countryside. Was met by Terry who was both welcoming and accommodating at all times. Also met with Nathan who was extremely helpful in trying to find the correct pump for our air awning, as we left ours at home. Definitely a 10/10 camp site.

    We can honestly say there was nothing about this camp site or our stay which we disliked.

Beautiful peaceful site , stunning views and super friendly staff04/20/2022

    Beautiful and peaceful location in Ewhurst Green overlooking the surrounding rolling fields and a stunning view of Bodiam castle in the distance, just perfect. I received a direct email straight after booking from from the lovely Terry, Lynda and Nathan who run the sight. They were super friendly when we arrived and we were happy we could purchase cheaply, logs and kindling to use with one of their fire pits which they brought once we were settled. All the pitches are well spaced out and we had a beautiful evening watching the sunset. We hadn't bought a BBQ dinner as this was the last night of our trip so cycled to the pub (8 mins!). There are 2 within 20 mins walk but I would recommend to prebook the White Dog Inn in advance if you want food. Ideally bring all supplies and don't leave the field! Sunrise over the misty fields in the morning was worth an early rise! Everyone was just enjoying the peace and nature and it was a nice mix of couples, friend groups and families. So much space to enjoy. Chemical toilets are available at the top of the field so bear in mind if you camp at the bottom.

    Disliked: 

    Leaving after one night!
    Mid field Motorhome pitches were very slightly sloped but not an issue.
    Quite a lot of thistles mixed up in the long cut grass so just take note if young kids running around but plenty of grass paths for them to enjoy safely.

From the manager...

Thank you for visiting Damson Field and we're pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have removed as much thistle as possible to make the play area safer for the children. Hope to see you again soon! :)
