Prices include parking for one vehicle only (there is a free car park a short drive away), beds, hot water bottles and blankets, cosy bedroom lighting and table and benches.

The Owner Says

We were so chuffed to find these amazing tents from New Zealand that are expressly designed to stay up all summer and withstand a similar (though more full-on) climate. Brand-new this season, they are large and solid with plenty of space and headroom; lots of light but also nice and dark when the window shades are up so your little ones sleep longer in the mornings. The big bedrooms and living area can easily accommodate a family of up to 5 (although a maximum of 8 can fit at a stretch) and the porch provides shade and shelter. In fact we like them so much, we’re living in one all summer ourselves. Duvets and pillows can become a bit damp over a whole season - we think you'll get a much better night's sleep if we provide hot water bottles and blankets,  and you bundle your own pillows and duvets into the car to snuggle up in at bedtime.

About Woodfire Camping

Suitable For

Tent campers only. Campervans or caravans – no. 


The South Downs National Park is eminently explorable from the campsite. England’s newest national park is filled with miles of dog-friendly rights-of-way to walk, including the Kingley Vale Trail. Or you could take it on two-wheels by cycling the South Downs Way. The Goodwood Estate is just under half an hour away. Home to the famous racecourse, Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival, it’s a mecca for petrolheads and fans of the gee-gees alike. The estate grounds also hosts the Cass Sculpture Foundation (01243 538449) which features over 50 extraordinary works of art amongst stunning gardens and bluebell-strewn woodland. There are several stately properties to explore including Petworth House (01798 343929), Uppark House and Garden (01730 825415) – both National trust-run – and the gorgeous West Dean Gardens (01243 818210) and Parham House and Gardens (01903 742021). Chichester Harbour AONB is a little over 30 mins away, so too are the beautiful beaches of Climping, Bracklesham Bay and West Wittering. The Weald & Downland Living Museum (01243 811348) at Singleton also offers a fascinating glimpse into the region's heritage.

Food & Drink

The onsite camp kitchen does delicious breakfasts and evening meals most days and every weekend, usually cooked over a woodfire or charcoal, either on the grill or in the pot. Breakfast might be huevos rancheros, bacon sandwiches, or just good old porridge to set you up for the day. Dinner might be grilled meat or fish and salads or stews with gremolata and flatbreads (kids options are also available). Pub-wise, there's plenty of traditional Sussex watering holes to seek out after a day's walking on the Downs. Pubs like The Three Moles (01798 861303), a short drive away, or The Cricketers (01798 342473) in Duncton, near Petworth. The latter, 16th century coaching inn, ticks all the boxes with a large Inglenook fireplace, beautiful beer gardens, a range of real ales and hearty pub fayre on offer. The White Horse Graffham (01798 867331) is one of the more upmarket gastropub options serving a refined menu of English classics. Another worthy dining option is The Unicorn Inn (01730 813486) at Heyshott, boasting locally sourced dishes and stunning views from its beer garden. There's a well-stocked village shop in Graffham too for any essentials you may need.
