General

  • Spacious working farm site on the Kent and East Sussex border
  • Half an hour’s drive from Camber Sands
  • Campfires, pick your own pitches, maze and adventure playground

Pitch up at Park Farm Caravan and Camping for pitchside campfires galore plus piles of spectacular wide open space around which to cycle, fly kites and let the kids (and dogs) run wild.

Set on a working farm in a peaceful rural spot on the border between Kent and East Sussex, this site is bordered by a little river and surrounded by miles upon miles of handsome countryside; for days out off site, the swell little seaside resort of Camber Sands is a handy half an hour’s drive away, and attractions like the Kent and Sussex Railway, Bodiam Castle and Bedgebury Pinetum are within a short drive too.

Back at base, there’s heaps of stuff to keep guests of all ages amply amused all day long, like a maize maze to get thoroughly lost in and free fishing into the neighbouring river direct from the site.

For kids there’s a partially fenced adventure playground with a trim trail, a play fort and a big slide for small folk to let off steam at. For rainy day, the open-sided barn is furnished with more fun-based bits, like a seesaw and other kit and games.

When peckish or thirsty head over to the site’s so-called ‘barn on wheels’ – out of its hatch are served drinks and locally sourced produce. Otherwise, head to the neighbouring pub for a feed or an afternoon pint of guest ale.

After a feed, it’s a splendid idea to have an amble around the farm to goggle its resident cows, sheep, donkeys and horses. The site owners actively maintain natural habitats to keep local wildlife happy, so while out and walking around one might well catch sight of some native critters too, from deer, barn owls and lots of other bird species to plenty of butterflies and insects.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

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

  • Liked: 

    We liked that we could camp anywhere and could pitch tents together without restrictions.
    We loved the fact that we could have a small bonfire.

    Disliked: 

    There is only one toilet block for the whole site which for such a huge site didn't feel enough.

    There was no evening patrol (as stated on the website) and there was a party going on near our tent with music and very loud voices until the early hours of the morning.

nice location, but not effectively managed 07/16/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom ALAN C. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We liked the layout of the tent pitches around the big field and the ability to make natural fires.

    Disliked: 

    We were expecting it to be busy as it was the middle of summer on a weekend and hot sunny weather. Unfortunately, after finding a quiet spot in the top corner off the field, 3 car loads of very loud Polish guests arrived and pitched up next to us.They were not respectful of the neighbouring pitches with kids kicking balls right in front of the tents, and shouting non stop until around midnight. Once it got dark the adults began to have a party. This continued until after 4am and made it impossible to sleep. At midnight I called the site warden who informed us security would be walking around enforcing the curfew. This did not happen. At 1 am I went over to them and asked them to please be respectful as it was a still night and the noise was carrying a lot. They told me it was a beautiful night and I should enjoy it.
    It could have been a lovely trip, instead it was like being on a stag night.

  • Liked: 

    I liked that we could have a fire, the kids loved toasting marshmellows. I liked the open space so we had a choice of where to pitch our tent. It’s was quiet and friendly where we were.

    Disliked: 

    The only issue I had was some vehicles travelling quite fast around the field regardless of the adults or children about. I understand this is difficult to police.

    Clean toilets, shower blocks and other facilities; friendly and helpful staff; delivery of very fairly-priced wood for fires; location and spacious pitches. Great balance between freedom to do as you wished and respect for those around around you. Noise at night curfews fair, adhered to and well-monitored too!

Local attractions

The plentiful paths that lie around the site also link up with other local footpaths, like the one that runs beside the river to Bodiam Castle, about 20 minutes’ amble away.

At Bewl Water you can go sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and cycling, or you can head to the
shingle stretches at Camber Sands for windsurfing and jetskiing at Cooden beach near Bexhill. If angling’s more your sort of water-based pursuit, fish free of charge for chub and roach from the site, or head to the nearby fish farm.

For a spot of local history, visit National Trust properties like Sissinghurst Castle, Cranbrook, Smallhythe Place, Scotney Castle and Batemans; should you instead fancy being ferried around, all aboard at Bodiam the Kent and East Sussex Railway.
