The Owner Says
calmness in a busy world
We stayed on the late May bank holiday. Arived late and walked up in the dusk and had no problem finding it from the directions provided. The bothy kitchen has everything you need and with swifts flying over head, the showers are great. When we woke in the morning our fellow previous night campers had gone and we had the place to ourselves, it was gorgeous. The following night we were joined by a few more campers in search of the peace and quiet. A camp fire brought us all together to chat in the evening and it was a very pleasant way to pass the time. This is such a jewel of a campsite to find in the busy south of England. We will definitely be back. I just hope the lamb with the cough gets better.
11 of us stayed at Gumber Bothy last weekend (12th Aug) for a night during our efforts to complete the SouthDowns Way (Eastbourne to Winchester). The place is outstanding! Simple, clean, efficient - everything we needed after the first two days. True it's a bit of a hike down from (and back to) the car park but that's a smal price to pay for the peace and tranquility it offers. The Bothy itself is brillint; we left the barn door open so it was fresh air all round and the resident housemartins came and went at will!
Can't recommend it highly enough.
This campsite is not for the faint-hearted as it's not signposted at all and involves a mile and a half walk up through woods. But completely worth it when you get there. We stayed in August and were the only people on one night so the sense of getting away from it all is amazing, especially considering you are in the crowded south east of England. It is a really atmospheric place and the facilities in the old barn are brilliant. The kitchen has all you could wish for and the toilets/showers were spotless. There is a campfire area as well. Just make sure you've packed everything you need before you leave the car!
