Basic Camping,
at Oakfield Farm,
Golden Cross.

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.  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.

Oakfield and Mill Farm are on what was once the Dicker Common, an area between the Roman settlements at Ripe and the Anderida Forest. The scenery here changed abruptly in 1813 when the area was enclosed by Act of Parliament and all Oakfield boundary hedges date back to that time. The Mill Farm hedges are several hundred years older.
