General

  • Simple stays at a sheep dairy farm on the outskirts of High Weald
  • Around two miles from the centre of Horsham; firepits for hire on site
  • Swimming pool, bowling alley and cinema within a 35-minute walk

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.

Please note that this park has a water tap and two portaloos but no showers.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Please note that a cold water tap and a portaloo are the only facilities on site.

    Peaceful, basic, loved the brightness of the stars at night. Fire pit and wood all organised beforehand. No difficulties at all. Brilliant place to camp. Smashing little wooded area we stomped around in and made dens with kids. Really a great back to nature camp (with a loo!)

    This is a lovely back to basics site, with just 2 portaloo's and a tap. The portaloos where kept immaculate, with plenty of spare toilet rolls to hand and plenty of sanitizer. This is a hilly site with lots of flat spots to choose from, we had to field to ourselves on the first night, but on the following day another 8 family's arrived. The field is huge and you can pitch where ever you like. The owner provides fire baskets and sells logs to burn if that's your thing. It was lovely to hear the birds in the woods in the morning and the owls at night. There's not to much light pollution, so star gazing was brilliant.

    Disliked: 

    The grass could of been a bit shorter, and would be a good idea to have a loo brush in the toilet, it was difficult to flush sometimes.

    Very relaxed atmosphere. Large camping field with a little wood next to it. Loads of butterfly's. The owner was very friendly and drove up so we could hire fire pit and buy logs. Also sold homemade sheeps milk icecream which was delicious! Clean portaloo and a fresh water tap.

Directions


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.

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

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.
