Just BasicCamping,
at Oakfield and Mill Farms,
Golden Cross, East Sussex

This East Sussex campsite has basic facilities, but there is a pub and a shop a five minute walk away and the market town of Hailsham is just 4 miles down the road.
This is Basic Camping, so don't expect modern comforts ( we do have clean flush loos with handwash sinks, and now a shower).
Campfires are allowed, logs for sale, £5 a basket

No cars allowed in camping fields except for loading or unloading. It is a couple of minutes walk to the sites.

(Don't confuse us with what was the Old Mill Holiday Park which was once also in Chalvington Road)

Tents: £8 adult per night, £5 children 5 to 15 years.
The Pond Field, we try to reserve this for adults.
Camping Field, pitches are round the edge of the field.

Sundays at 8am, learn to milk Pansy

Cars must be parked in the first field, ONLY allowed further for loading/unloading.
Family friendly so children are welcome.
Dogs are not always allowed as we have livestock, but please ask us.
Behaviour that offends or disturbs other campers will not be tolerated.
No loud music or boisterous behaviour, we want you all to enjoy the peace here.
Facilities basic, but do have clean flush loos and a shower. This is a farm so don't expect mownlawns, clubhouse, electric hook-ups, pretty lights, entertainment, etc.

We take re-cycling but anything else that you can't burn on your campfire you will have to take back home with you.

the Guernsey cow!
