For Camping in the beautiful East Sussex countryside, at the head of the Cuckmere valley, this 30 acre working farm is well placed for exploring the South Downs Country Park, The High Weald, Ashdown Forest, and the Sussex coast.
This East Sussex farm campsite has basic facilities, but there is a shop a five minute walk away and the market town of Hailsham is just 4 miles down the road. SmallSnackShack for tea coffee burger and chips etc.
No cars allowed in camping fields except for loading or unloading, so the site is safe for children. It is a couple of minutes walk to the sites from the carpark.
The Pond Field, we reserve this for adults.
Camping Field, pitches are round the edge of the field, leaving acres of open space in the centre.
We want our visitors to enjoy our countryside and just for a while to be able to get away from modern life and appreciate the nature all about. There are plenty of places to visit during the day, beautiful walks, the coast, the South Downs, ancient villages, country houses and gardens, and of course old pubs. Build your own campfire in the evening and toast marshmallows, print out a skymap and try to name the stars, or just be silent and hope to see our barn owl glide past
Vehicles are only allowed at the entrance field. Well behaved dogs and children are allowed.
Arriving at Mill Farm forty years ago, from a neighbouring village, we are only too aware of how lucky we are to have been able to spend our lives here and now we want to be able to share our own little bit of heaven with others. Five years ago we took over the adjoining 30 acre Oakfield Farm together with its small herd of Guernsey cows. This farm had changed very little since the 1940's. Though the milking herd has now gone we still milk Pansy every morning and would be pleased to give a demonstration to anyone interested on Sundays at 8am. When we have spare milk we make our own butter and cream. You will see our beef cattle with their young grazing the fields. At Mill Farm we used to rear pigs, but now only keep four at a time to produce our own pork and sausages.
