The Owner Says

Come and have a stay at our relaxed, unique camp site. Our picturesque campsite is located on the beautiful South Downs Way, offering pitches for tents and small camper vans. Sorry no caravans or motorhomes allowed. The site is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with breathtaking views over the Downland and sea. It's also only a 20 minute stroll from the  gorgeous Sussex coast and within easy reach of Brighton. It is in a perfect location for hiking, cycling or a family break, being only a 20 minute walk from the seafront. We have some great local pubs and many family attractions close by.

The site offers a  toilet facility, 2 showers, a washing-up area and drinking water. Fire pits can be hired to create a camp fire or barbeque (camp fires directly on the ground are NOT permitted). Logs & fire lighting packs can be purchased along with breakfast hampers, barbeque hampers & marshmallows. The campsite is dog & family friendly and an ideal location for walkers, cyclists and riders, offering them a reduced rate.

Stud Farm is a mixed working organic farm. Previously a horse stud and home of a Grand National winner in 1902. It is now a working sheep farm, along with pigs, cattle and arable farming. It also offers horse livery, with a range of stables, paddocks & packages available as well as an outdoor school and homemade hay & straw for sale. We produce our own lamb, pork and a range of sausages, all available for purchase and along with our free-range eggs can be supplied to hungry campers! The beautiful farm house offers B&B with equine companions welcome. Perfect for a ride along the South Downs way. Also look out for our open day running every year on the Sun & Mon of the first May bank holiday.

We are based in lovely Telescombe, a historic and picturesque village recorded in the Domesday Book. It is nestled at the foot of the South Downs with Telscombe Tye to the South. It houses the ancient church of St.Laurence which dates back to the twelfth century. Stud Farm forms part of the village along with the village Hall and houses such as The Manor and the Old Rectory. It has less than 50 inhabitants and therefore still remains quiet and unspoilt.
