Our delicious, hearty food has earned us a reputation as the country’s first ever gastro campsite. Using local, seasonal and top-quality ingredients from the high-welfare farms kitchen gardens, woods and fields surrounding us, we are proud to showcase the fantastic produce that Sussex and the South Downs has to offer. All our food is freshly prepared, cooked over fire and shared at trestle tables overlooking wonderful views.
We began cooking for campers on Friday nights, knowing from experience that travelling from work, putting up a tent (usually with a row) and then having to produce a meal can test the most patient of souls. We now cook breakfast and supper most days for our campers, and also host ticketed one-off dining events where we collaborate with some amazing chefs – see our Feasts below. But whatever the occasion, our key ingredients stay the same: relaxed outdoor dining with friends as the sun sets over the hills and the kids play nearby (though not too near).
Every so often, when the stars align, we hold a Feast. Like a big, village picnic, everyone sits together at long tables and we serve up a storm. Sometimes it’s us cooking, sometimes guest chefs from top open-fire restaurants like Temper, Scully St James, or Ottolenghi’s Rovi. Impromptu and fun, they’re a celebration of outdoor dining and local produce; less white tablecloths and matching cutlery, more like the end of every Asterix story; people coming together to share food and fellowship.
Every Feast ticket includes an overnight stay meaning no one has to drive and you can peel off to bed whenever you want, or sit up around a fire, chatting and stargazing. Lovely hot showers, coffee and breakfast the next morning.
