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 slap bang in the middle of the South Downs National Park? Splendid. Folk who need little more to make them happy than a great swathe of space and some fine views should certainly 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, you’ll be chuffed to hear) and a drinking water supply. That means you’re left with plenty of open space to play games, light a barbie, construct a campfire… and generally chill out.

Bike rides and walks are top activities around these parts of course – you may like to start by taking a wander by the lake next to the site and local footpaths (plenty of sniffing about for any hounds you may have brought along for the ride) 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).

Please note

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Views! Simple campsite, just 2 portaloos, washing up area & fresh water tap.

    Disliked: 

    No privacy in field, all camped around edge. Okay but more suited to families with children - children playing, babies crying didn't make a very peaceful stay. Field sloped & thistly.

    I wanted my kids to experience real camping away from the sites with full facilities and activities. As wild camping is not allowed in the UK this was the next best thing. Essentially a farmers field off a very quiet lane with a great view of the south downs. There were some facilities, a drinking water tap, two large sinks and a couple of porta loos (they were very clean) which was all me and my 4 year old twins needed.

    Angus, who runs the site was a very nice chap with a good knowledge of the area. There is a small copse next to the campsite where I took the kids for a mini adventure. Angus can also provide a fire pit and logs if needed, we had our bbq so had a fire in that after dinner and roasted marshmallows. All in all we had a great time and will definitely return.
