No one likes hearing about rules (at least, we think), but our campsite rules are created with you in mind, and help to ensure that everyone on-site has the best possible experience. 

We know there won’t be any problems, but to safeguard your holiday and relaxation we respectfully ask that everyone adhere to the following:


We operate with a very informal reception, allowing campers to come and go at ease.

For more information on the area, please do not hesitate to ask the Site Manager.


The Site is available from 4pm on the day of your arrival. You are requested to vacate by 4pm on your day of departure. If you wish to extend your stay, please contact the manager before 12.00 am on your expected departure date.

Late Arrivals

You may pitch before or by dusk.

The manager will normally be on site between 4pm and 7pm to meet and greet, but if you arrive after this time please take care, use a torch and respect the other campers.

If you wish to arrive before 4pm please contact the manager who will let you know if this is possible.

If you have purchased wood or arranged the use of a fire pit and arrive outside checking in time this will normally be left at the main gate entrance for you to collect.


Please note that due to fire regulations you must pitch at least three, preferably six, metres away from anyone else. Unfortunately if this rule is not adhered to you may be asked to repitch (and no one likes that).

You will find a water sources in prominent places around the site, please make yourself aware of where these are located in case of fire.

One windbreak is permitted per pitch, with a maximum of six poles. 

Speed Limit

The speed limit on-site is 5mph – walking speed. As there are often young children playing, we ask you to take special care when driving on-site.

When off site please drive slowly past horses and cyclists whilst adhering to the highway code.


Generators are only allowed if specified by the management. Where generators are allowed, please abide by the times we allow these to run.


Any barbecues used on our sites should be specifically designed and used only for the purpose of cooking food (i.e not fire-pits).  They should be robust, secure and able to be raised off of the floor, there should no damage or marks left on the ground where they have been used.

In support of the South Downs Management Plan we are asking campers not to bring disposable barbecues for their stay. We are also reminding campers that outside of camp sites no barbecues of any kind are allowed anywhere in the South Downs National Park on unauthorized sites.

Please ensure the smoke and fumes do not annoy other site users or local residents. In times of very dry weather, when the fire risk is high, the use of barbecues may be restricted, although this will be in very exceptional circumstances. For more information on this please ask the site manager who will advise.


We offer a dog-friendly camping holiday. However, we request that dogs must be kept on a leash at all times whilst on-site. Please be courteous and always clean up after your dog. There is a maximum of two dogs per group.


For health and safety reasons, we do not permit visitors to hang any items on the trees. Hammocks, washing lines and tree swings are strictly prohibited.

Likewise we do not permit fireworks or den building on or around the site.


Please do not feed the animals in and around the area.


Please keep noise at a level, which will not disturb other site users and local residents, especially between 11.00pm and 8.00am.


Please take care when cycling. You can cycle on public roads, byways open to all traffic, public bridleways, restricted bridleways, and dedicated cycle routes.

Cycling on public footpaths is also not permitted.

Be safe around animals, pass them slowly and wide and to one side if possible. Close gates behind you so the animals don’t stray. Keep to a safe speed, and be polite to other cyclists, motorists, pedestrians and residents.


We make every effort to keep the site facilities clean and tidy and ask for your assistance in maintaining this standard and by leaving all facilities clean after use.

The manager checks the site on a regular basis for discarded tent pegs, litter etc, If you do find any old tent pegs or similar please either remove them or report them to the manager as they could be a hazard.


For health and safety reasons please advise the site manager if you wish to invite visitors onto the site.

Kites, Flags and Drones

Due to limited space available we do not encourage kite flying, flag poles or use of drones on site. 

Moving around the Site

Depending on the weather conditions, there may be enough moonlight to see where you are walking through the campsite at night, provided that you walk slowly.  Alternatively, it will be the responsibility of any person on site to have a torch or other means of light in order to see where they are going.

Terms and Conditions The Site Manager reserves the right to exclude customers for breach of our terms and conditions.
