For those who love being deep in the countryside (but aren’t averse to a few luxury touches) we’ve found this small, secluded site in a stunning location; just a hop, skip and jump down the footpath from the South Downs Way. There’s loads to visit, eat and do within easy walking distance, making it perfect for families, walkers and cyclists.

Woodfire at Firle is on the Firle Estate. By car, it’s approached 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.

We have campfires, hammocks and a sheltered seating area with a huge copper gypsy kettle for tea and hot water bottles. The crystal clear drinking water is piped straight from a nearby borehole on the Estate, to the powerful hot showers and sinks.

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!
