The pathway to your perfect pitch

General

  • Wild site in peaceful woodland on the Sussex Weald
  • Five minutes drive to East Grinstead shops and pubs, Blue Bell railway
  • 10 minutes to Ashdown Forest and 20 to Ardingly Activity Centre

Walk in the steps of Winnie the Pooh on this wild woodland patch of the Sussex Weald.

There’s a touch of drama about checking into Evergreen Farm Camping: you make your way to a spot 150 metres from the main site, and you won’t see anything except the trees. A quad bike with a trailer roars down the path to pick up your stuff and take it to a tiny, peaceful site in 10 acres of ancient woodland. With sleeping among the trees, cooking on firepits and listening to the birds, you could be in the wilderness... but you’re five minutes’ walk from town and 40-odd miles from London.

It’s a simple site, focused on peace and quiet in the natural surroundings. Guests have two compost toilets to use; 25-litre containers of drinking water are provided, and firewood can be obtained from the farm (affording a chance to meet the sheep, pigs, goats and horses).

A 10-minute walk or a five-minute drive and you’re in East Grinstead, an attractive medieval town well furnished with pubs, eats and supermarkets. The site is also within walking distance of Standen House, an arts and crafts home with William Morris interiors and eye-catching hillside gardens. Nature tamed: a neat contrast with your wild wood accommodation.

Please note

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

    It was a great wild camping experience and cooking over a campfire. Chris the farmer is a great guy and very helpful, as his daughter. My daughter loved the farm dogs that would follow the farmer around when delivering water or showing you to the pitches. I took my own fire wood but it is available to buy at the farm if you need it. Would definitely go again.

    Disliked: 

    All good for us.

Beautiful site, lovely views and lots of space to roam and play09/15/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomIlona P.Confirmed

  • Primitive grass tent site (large)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely site. We loved the privacy and space - we were on the grassy pitch.
    The hosts were super friendly and helpful, and took us on a ride around the grounds which the kids loved. Beautiful views as well. In the summer I think it'd be really nice to pitch a tent in the woods where it's cooler. But as we were there in September, although the weather was great, it was good to be out on the grassy pitch to catch as much sun and warmth as possible.

    Also Standen House is really close by and we took a lovely walk through the woods to the house and then back to the campsite. Really recommend it!

    Disliked: 

    My only suggestion would be some warm running water for dishes and to wash hands. Maybe even a shower. But I know the appeal of this place for some is the 'back to basics'. I still loved it all the same.

Lovely secluded woodland site.09/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United Kingdomsarah b.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Liked: 

    Lovely secluded woodland pitches. Trailer ride to and from pitch from car park with all your gear good fun and convenient!. Free firewood and giant vat of fresh water. Friendly owners. Cute dogs however we have an unsociable dog so had to keep an eye out for the owners dogs wondering around. Long walks right from the site without having to drive. Compost toilets were kept clean.
    Seems quite pricey considering it is a very back to basics site, but those are the types of site we like and do see this quite regularly. However, with the free firewood, firepit on pitch and water provided, If you paid less but had to pay to pay to hire a firepit and buy all the wood then it would probably work out about the same if not less...
    Will definitely be back!

    Disliked: 

    Had very noisy neighbors on the first night who really put a downer on the evening as they made it impossible to relax and enjoy the quiet woodland surroundings. Text owners but no reply as it was late which was fair enough, if had called them they said they would have come and sorted it out.

    Great campsite, just call the owner on arrival and he'll pick you and your gear up and take you to a pitch. Water is provided at the pitch.

    Back to basics camping, no showers as more wild camping, compost toilet.

    Will stay here again, enjoyed the option of in the open camping or camping within the forest setting.

    Everything!

    Back to basics natural camping. Loved the individual pitches in the forest clearings, especially as shaded by trees so no waking up sweltering in your tent or by bright sunlight.

    Really helpful owners/staff and having your camping gear taken to and from your tent was a big bonus.

    Very clean compost toilets

Local attractions

While you’re in East Grinstead, grab a ticket to ride the Blue Bell Railway, where restored steam locomotives take you on a 40-minute tour of the Weald countryside finishing up in Sheffield Park. There's acres of landscaped gardens, parks and woodland to wander round there, and a lake to picnic by.

Walkers and climbers congregate at Stone Hill Rock (15 minutes’ drive), a geological oddity of sandstone crags ripe for clambering up and hiking around. Equally stuffed with trails for the curious is Ashdown Forest (10 minutes), a mix of deep woods and open heathland home to deer, adders, nightjars and a certain famous bear. Make for Pooh Sticks Bridge for the must-do activity on the river stream (20 minutes from site) and seek out Five Hundred Acre Wood to see where it all started. Furry friends of a different kind can be encountered at the llama park 15 minutes from the site.

No deer at Deer Leap Park (five minutes) ,but mountain bikers have 240 acres of trails and slopes and scrambles to cycle up, down and off; hire bikes here if you haven't brought your own. If water’s more your thing, Ardingly Activity Centre (20 minutes) has the aquatic full onmty, from fishing to windsurfing and kayaking to paddleboarding.
