Woodland camping plus the added attraction of a functioning traditional farm selling high quality products to cook over your campfire.
A small family run mixed farm in the heart of the beautiful Sussex Weald, with a herd of pedigree Sussex cattle, traditional breed pigs and South Down sheep.
It has 70 acres of ancient semi-natural woodland and is the vestige of the forbidding forest that covered the Weald in times gone by.
With the assistance of a Woodland Archaeological team the owners recently identified many charcoal burning platforms, saw pits and medieval boundary ditch and bank systems.
An 8 acre field in the middle of this woodland is the wild camp site.
In Tudor times this was the very heart of the iron industry and the place names underline this; Furnace Lane, Gun Hill etc.
Each stage of growth provides different habitats for various flora and fauna.
The owners objective is to leave the woods to the next generation in better heart and health than at the time of acquisition; they believe in enjoying the beautiful woods but treading gently on history and nature.
