Could a hol get any more tremendously rural than on a sheep dairy farm in the middle of West Sussex countryside? Find out for yourself with a trip to Top Paddock Campsite, on the outskirts of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with woods for wanders right next door.
If there’s still life in the legs after tramping across all the local trails on offer, within a couple of miles is the Downs Link, a 37-mile shared route along a couple of disused railway lines connecting the North Downs and South Downs ways.
Requiring a rest after a stroll here or at the Leechpool and Owlbeech Woods (five minutes’ drive)? Veg out on the spacious grassy meadow back at Top Paddock. This is a pitch-where-you-like sort of place with no set markers, so it’s fine to bag yourself a quiet corner or create a sociable circle of tents with a group of pals. Whatever option you choose, plenty of peace and space is pretty much guaranteed as the owners limit the number of guests to help keep the site as serene as possible.
When you’ve got your get up and go back, head off on footpaths from close by Top Paddock towards Horsham (35 minutes’ walk) for supplies to snack on while sitting around a hired firepit – a cosy spot for stargazing on cooler nights – or drive to the nearest supermarket, 10 minutes away.

Top Paddock is after a left-hand bend and opposite two cottages and a converted barn. If you get to a junction with a glass triangle, you've gone past it.
Outdoor highlights of Horsham include a wildlife pond, tennis courts and mature gardens, with indoor attractions including a historic museum, an art gallery, a swimming pool and lots of 17th-century buildings; for evening entertainment, the town also has a bowling alley and a cinema.
If you’re more of an ambler than a film fan, set off on the Downs Link, a five-minute drive away, to pass by wildlife habitats, wildflowers banks, rivers, ponds and streams, or drive for around half an hour towards the western paths of the South Downs National Park instead.
Active endeavours of the aquatic sort more your thing? Swing by the Southwater Watersports Centre (less than 10 minutes' drive) for kayaking, canoeing and sailing – equipment hire is available for experts and there are organised activities for novices. A golf course is also within a 10-minute drive for putting about on the green.
