Camping at Brightling Park

Our sustainable campsite is situated in the very heart of Brightling Park’s 600-acre estate, offering a totally wild and back to nature experience. With breathtaking views across the South Downs, our camping field provides a magical setting for those who want to experience total escapism and freedom.

Please note, we only operate an online pre-booking system. We regret that we do not accept walk-ups or cash payment.

Pitches

We accept every size and shape of tent and we aim to provide enough room so each pitch can be as private as possible with plenty of space for little ones to run around and explore.

 

Facilities

Our ‘nearly wild campsite’ means that our facilities are fairly simple. We have toilets onsite which are cleaned regularly and access to clean running water which is safe for drinking.  We do not currently have showers onsite and our campsite is off-grid so there is no electricity or WIFI. However, the campsite has very good phone signal for most major mobile networks. 

 

Rubbish

We operate a Leave No Trace policy, whereby we ask campers to take all their rubbish away with them when they leave. This is to reduce the impact on the environment and to encourage campers to minimise non-recyclable waste.  The two nearest Waste and Recycling Centres near Brightling Park are Heathfield (TN21 8RA) and Mountfield (TN32 5LT).

 

Campfires

We are very happy for campers to make campfires and we also sell firewood and kindling sourced from our own woodland for £10 a bag which is available to purchase in advance online or for cash during your stay.

Things to see and do

There is no shortage of things to see and do in and around the village of Brightling, including adventurous walks, exploring historical monuments and enjoying fine ales at local pubs. For more details on things to see and do, including the Mad Jack Fuller Folly Trail, please click here.

Rural Responsibility

Sustaining our natural environment is part of the Brightling Park ethos and so we ask all our campers to agree to respect countryside around them by sticking to the footpaths, minimising mess, waste and any potentially lasting damage, as well as being considerate to wildlife and farm livestock.
