General

  • Back to basics farm site under the South Downs
  • Spotless facilities including a shower and toilet block added in 2019
  • Catering van with local produce freshly cooked for you

There’s something immensely satisfying about pitching a tent, building a campfire and lying back to gaze at the stars... all in the happy knowledge this is how it’s been done since our early ancestors first discovered mammoths taste better when roasted over flames. Pass the barbecue tongs.

Guests getting back to basics surrounded by nature and forgetting about overflowing email boxes/underflowing bank accounts is the aim of June and co at the mighty popular (but def nor overcrowded) Oakfield Farm Campsite, under the South Downs and at the head of the Cuckmere valley.

It’s a working farm with space to camp rather than a commercial campsite, so you won’t find kids’ clubs, a bar or evening entertainment – just basic farm camping with spotless amenities, a very friendly owner and loads of countryside space to gaze at over the campfire. Pass the sausages.

Logs and kindling are for sale on site as well as small gas cylinders and barbecue packs (or before you arrive you can order sausages, bacon, burgers and steak from the owners, who sell their own or local meat). A catering trailer is on site too for hot and cold drinks, sweets, biscuits, locally sourced bacon and egg baps, burgers, chips and more from its varied menu.

For other campfire supplies, the petrol station within five minutes’ walk has most of the essentials (beer, wine, barbecue bits) and bigger shops and supermarkets are about 10 minutes’ drive away in Hailsham.

And if you want to teach the kids that no, milk is not only sourced from a carton in the supermarket, take your small sorts on Sundays to learn how to milk Pansy the cow. A crew of mischievous pigs are also around to meet, and it's sometimes possible to see the farm's miniature goats or visit the stables.

    The friendly and thoughtful staff on site, Julie the owner and Jordan were great. They helped with anything we needed and gave suggestions about where to go in Eastbourne which was great for the kids.
    On site there was nice hot food, ice creams, eggs, wood and kindling available and campfires for every pitch plus lots more.
    The showers and toilets were very clean and it honestly felt like a very easy first family camping trip.
    Julie, checked in on us every day and took time to put families with similar age children together.
    There is a BP garage less than 1/2 a mile away so any other last minute things can be easily purchased.
    Cars can drop off all your stuff on the first day and then are parked in the next field. Disabled spaces are available and much closer.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I can say is that it's a bit of a walk from where the cars are parked to the tent pitches, but nothing at all that would put us off using the campsite again.

From the manager...

Thank You So much for your lovely review, Julie is the one in the catering van cooking for everyone and keeping the children happy with sweets and ice lollies .
Jordan is a great asset the the campsite helping me (June) with the running of the campsite even he mixes up our names and for some reason I have started calling him Gordon but as long as the campsite runs smoothly and we have happy campers you can call us anything.
Hope to see you again
June

Directions


From the A22 the campsite will be on your left; look out for the small sign. Satnavs with the site postcode will try and take you to Mill Farm: this is a private drive not the campsite.

If coming from the A27, again your satnav will take you to Mill Farm; the site entrance is just past this drive on to your right.

You can bring your car in to unload. Please keep to the tracks.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The farm is well placed for seeing the best of Sussex east and west, the countryside and the coast, with walks, bike rides, country houses, gardens and cliffs all close by.

The 100-mile South Downs Way runs from Winchester to Eastbourne; if you prefer to pedal, the 14-mile Cuckoo Trail passes through Hailsham on its route from Heathfield to Eastbourne Park (bikes can be hired near the site).

Oakfield Farm is at the head of the Cuckmere valley, a grass chalkland and wildlife haven with views towards the River Cuckmere and the Seven Sisters, the chalk cliffs between Seaford and Eastbourne.

Look out for the Litlington white horse carved into the chalk cliff and for Devil’s Dyke, the longest and deepest dry valley in the country and called ‘the grandest view in the world’ by John Constable. Both spots are, of course, where you should bring a picnic...

Must see

  • Drusillas Park (4.6 miles)
  • Alfriston Clergy House (5.8 miles)
  • Eastbourne Pier (9.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Alfriston Clergy House (5.8 miles)
