Very, very, very peaceful

A very large field surrounded by trees, in the middle of the countryside, with lots of privacy (at one point we had the whole field almost to ourselves), an organic, environment-friendly compost toilet, and farm animals available for visits. Beauty and goodness combined: beautiful to the sight, and good for the soul, the heart and mind; I was looking forward to the dawn chorus of birds, to the bonfires at night, and to our barbecues. Very, very, very peaceful

Just perfect!

We stayed in one of Hale Farm’s beautiful bell tents for three nights in the summer and everything was just perfect. The tent itself was thoughtfully kitted out, the location idyllic and both the communal kitchen area and lockable private bathroom were spotlessly clean and just a stone’s throw from our tent. Oh and the farm animals were adorable. Thank you Ruth and Scott for a lovely break - we’re looking forward to coming back next year!

Just had a wonderful three day stay at this beautiful campsite and the Sussex countryside. The owners are very friendly and helpful and everything is very organised. The facilities were immaculately clean. I’ll daughter loved visiting the farm animals which was an added bonus. A lovely tranquil spot Plenty of nice countryside walks and reachable pubs. Couldn’t of asked for more. We will definitely visit again.

Amazing - a perfect place

One of my favourite Glamping sites. Spacious. Homely. Clean. Sparse. Absolutely brilliant facilities and real simple chic. I will be back and will recommend to all my friends in the meantime.

Amazing location, amazing glamping

Hale Farm was amazing, the glamping meadow was large and peaceful and having your own bathroom facilities felt very luxurious. There was also the added bonus of the coffee and ice cream van. Ruth and Scott were helpful and no question or request was too difficult. We would definitely recommend Hale Farm and would happily revisit.
