• exclusive hire only

The Round Hill, our exclusive-hire field on the stunning Firle Estate, is an magical, very private spot. Small, secluded and spiritual (if you like that sort of thing), the campsite is enfolded by the Downs, with stunning views of the Firle Estate  spread before it. Just a hop, skip and jump down the footpath from Firle Beacon on the South Downs Way, there’s loads to visit, eat and do within easy walking distance, or just stay onsite and while away a couple of days doing nothing. It’s the perfect, peaceful place to commune with friends, loved ones, sheep and cows.

Approached by car along the Old Coach Road (which has a good few potholes, be warned). Campers park and then ferry their gear up a farm track using our big wheelbarrows, or grab a lift in our 4×4.

It’s available any time from Easter until the end of September and for 2024 we are making the whole site available for groups of up to sixty people with prices starting from £90 per person for two nights (minimum group size of 40).

(by way of the Old Coach Road)

The site holds a minimum group size of 40 people (inc. children) and a maximum of 60-70 depending on how well you all know each other! The minimum stay is two nights. Extra guests can stay either in their own tents for our regular camping prices, or in extra pre-pitched tents – please see the table below for prices. 

Prices for the first forty guests is £45 each per night (regardless of age) . This includes: 

  • ten pre-pitched tents,  furnished, including up to four beds each; warm bedding; extra blankets; hot water bottles and lighting.
  • a delicious fire-cooked supper
  • a huge communal Kadai firepit with grill, tripod, cooking bowls
  • several smaller firepits and a cubic metre of seasoned firewood
  • cooking equipment, stove-top coffee pots and a large brass kettle 
  • a sheltered seating area with table and bench sets
  • exclusive use of the whole campsite, including two powerful, hot showers; two washing-up sinks; three hand-washing sinks and two clean, regenerative toilets, hammocks, rope swing and the right to roam straight off the site and across the Downs!

Want to jazz it up?
No problem! You can have more tents (your own or ours); a morning breakfast delivery of local eggs, bacon, tea, coffee and freshly-baked bread and pastries; your own private live-fire chef; yoga or pilates sessions; personal forager; silent disco – you name it and we’ll see what we can do!

One thing to note –  this is a space for people to enjoy each others’ company and nature without disturbing their environment or our neighbours. Amplified speakers won’t work and we ask for quiet voices (ie no shouting) around the campfire from 11pm.

Head to our Round Hill FAQs to find out more and use our contact form to get in touch to book your spot!


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 hot, powerful showers are in roomy cubicles with hooks, log seats and mirrors and plenty of space to get changed or wash children!

Washing-up area

Our covered washing-up area has two sink-and-a-halfs (sinks and a half?); drip-dry plate racks and log stools to stand on so there’s no reason why the kids can’t 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!
