New for 2023, we’re bringing the full Woodfire experience to a stunning field at Firle for 28 days only! Same beautifully-crafted hot showers and regenerative toilets (my new term for compost – click here for rant); same incredible views of the South Downs (from a different spot, obviously) and Firle Place; same great food cooked every night over fire. If you’ve been to Westerlands before, it’s exactly the same deal – a large, flat field with parking right next to it; wheelbarrows for carting gear on and off; campfires and campervans allowed. The crystal clear drinking water is piped straight from a nearby borehole on the Estate, to the powerful hot showers and sinks.

Close to Brighton, Lewes, Eastbourne, Seven Sisters National Park and all the gloriousness and beaches that entails, there’s masses to do nearby. Click on our FAQs and Things to Do below to find out more!


We are deep in the South Downs National Park, which is a ‘dark sky reserve’, meaning we don’t have lighting onsite. Do bring your own torches but please no fairy lights on all night – they really disturb nocturnal wildlife.

Hot showers

Our powerful showers are in roomy cubicles with hooks, log seats and mirrors and plenty of space to get changed or wash children – we even have a double shower to make it easier!

Washing-up area

Our covered washing-up area has three sink-and-a-halfs (sinks and a half?); drip-dry plate racks and log stools to stand on so no excuses for the kids not to do the washing up.

Compost toilets

Our lovely, clean compost toilets turn something that is usually a waste product into a rich compost that helps things grow, making them both practical and beautiful!

Large 6-8 person hire tents

6 man tent

These lovely 5-metre ‘touareg’ tents are large and solid with plenty of space and headroom. Unlike bell tents, they have windows so they’re also light and airy even in hot weather, and unlike synthetic fabrics, canvas doesn’t slap around noisily in the wind. They could sleep up to 8 though that would mean no space other than beds, but it gives you an idea of room available. We like them so much, we’re camping in one all summer ourselves!

Prices include parking for one vehicle (please let us know if you need to bring more), top-rated comfy airbeds (BYO sheets, duvets and pillows), hot water bottles and blankets on request, cosy bedroom lighting, a table and 2 benches that can seat up to 8. If you need chairs we have a limited number available on request. Please bring any extra lighting and other equipment you think you might need.

Prices per person, per night (minimum £72 a night for two people; 2 nights minimum at weekends, 3 nights for bank holidays). Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate dogs in our pre-pitched tents. 

Adult (18+):  £36*
Child (3+):    £12*

NB If you are booking as part of a group please read about our limits for group bookings in our FAQs.
