Sandy Meadow Farm: Tent meadow

General

  • Peaceful working farm in the South Downs National Park
  • Within 10 minutes’ drive of woodlands, stately homes and vineyards
  • Haven for stargazers: in a Dark Sky Reserve

Green pastures, river valleys, ancient woodlands and stunning coastlines… If that’s ticking all the boxes, park up for your hols at Sandy Meadow Farm, a family-friendly site on a working farm 10 minutes’ drive from the village of Pulborough in West Sussex.

In the South Downs National Park, Sandy Meadow is a top spot for ramblers, bikers and riders: there are hundreds of miles of waymarked trails and bridleways to explore in the park, and if your interests follow more of a treasure hunting vibe, you can also have a go at geocaching.

Back on site, chill out in the quiet meadow before cooking in the guest kitchen or firing up the barbecue (pick up supplies from the supermarket 15 minutes away). If you need a break from looking after your own needs, make your way to one of the restaurants within 15 minutes to have someone else do all the hard work.

And after that? The South Downs National Park is a Dark Sky Reserve, so get outside once the sun sets, turn your eyes to the skies and take it all in.

    The rural location and ease of stay

    Disliked: 

    Electric hookup was just an extension lead
    Toilets and showers were filthy (although the shower itself was good)
    No rubbish facilities
    £60 a night is definitely not justified

    Adrian was so helpful showing me the ropes on my first outing in Feebee campervan. He enlisted the help of fellow camper Billy to help me put up my awning. The site was steeped in nature, quiet and with basic facilities which were all great - shame there was no wifi. Cleanliness was good except where campers did nit clean up after themselves: why cant people clear dishes of food before washing them and blocking the plug with food - why can’t they wipe down the sink? Why can’t campers remove their hair and grass from plug holes and put in the bin and put empty product bottles in the bin - hmmmm! Quite expensive when you have add ons: electricity, dog, awning!

    We stayed one night in a tent and had a really lovely time. It was so peaceful, beautiful setting, friendly staff who checked round to all of us in the evening to say hello and see that we were OK. Sitting out in the evening, open fire, glass of wine, looking at the amazing night sky, hearing owls and nightjars still gives me goose bumps! Before we booked, I read the reviews on here so knew what to expect. Presumable other people do the same so if it does not sound right to you then think about staying elsewhere. Don’t stay there and then post a negative review. It is what it is and whilst that will not suit everyone, for us it was perfect. We are already planning to go back and stay longer.

Local attractions

There’s lots around here to keep history buffs counting their lucky stars: the Bignor Roman Villa, Coultershaw Heritage Site and Beam Pump, and the vintage steam and diesel trains of South Downs Light Railway are all roughly 10 minutes' drive from the farm.

Of course anoraks won’t be content with just that, so make a beeline for one (or all?) of the many stately homes in the area if you want a bit more. Spectacular Petworth House, Arundel Castle and Parham House are all within 15 minutes of Sandy Meadow, and you can also take a turn around the gardens at Woolbeding 25 minutes away.

Also less than half an hour from the site is Goodwood Estate – make your way here for the tour (and afternoon tea) at Goodwood House, or for something a little more high octane at the racecourse, moto circuit or aerodrome. Time your visit just right and you might be around for one of its famed events like the Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival or the Goodwood Festival.

Tipplers, when you think of wine regions, do you think of France, Spain, Italy, Chile, South Africa and… the South Downs? No? Well you should – the area is holding its own as a wine producer, and you can do tours and tastings at Stopham Vineyard and Winery, Upperton Vineyards and Wiston Estate Winery, all less than 25 minutes away.

You can also get out in nature at Lord’s Piece untouched heathland less than five minutes away, or entertain the kids with a visit to Fishers Adventure Farm Park (20 minutes).

Must see

  • Petworth House & Park (5.9 kilometres)
