The Owner Says
FOR CAMPING BOOKINGS OF 5+ PEOPLE, PLEASE BOOK PITCHES INDIVIDUALLY TO ENSURE CORRECT PRICING. Each pitch can accommodate a maximum of 5 people in 1 tent only. For extra tents you must make a separate booking. This is a peaceful countryside setting not allowing groups (please no groups), no music, no radios and no noise. The facilities are basic but there are proper flushing toilets, washing up areas and hot showers. Check-in at Blackberry Wood Reception.
Please note: you need to bring your own tent.

About Blackberry Wood
Tents, glampers, dogs (on leads at all times) – yes. Motorhomes, caravans and large groups– no.
The South Downs National Park (01730 814810) is the newest in the UK, which means a lot of recent investment in the excellent paths and landscape. The site provides route maps for lovely local walks, there are footpaths and bridleways galore and depending on which direction you take, a 45-minute walk can take you to the village of Ditchling; to the superb Jolly Sportsman pub or Half Moon with outstanding food and friendly ambience; or to the Black Cap viewpoint, a high point on the South Downs Way from where you can see eight miles across the Sussex countryside to the sea. Chilled-out Lewes is just 5 miles away, or it’s 8 miles to the bright lights of Brighton, with its pier, pebble beach and pavilion.
Food & Drink
A well-stocked campsite shop sells local produce, including eggs, bacon, sausages and locally produced wine and beer. There’s some great pubs within walking distance; The Jolly Sportsman and The Half Moon are fantastically snug and cosy and serve up a changing menu of gastro delights. Ditchling the closest village also within walking distance has 2 great pubs and 2 fine luncheon cafes.
