Campsites near Ditchling with horseback riding guide

Overview

Known for its role in the early 20th-century Arts and Crafts movement, Ditchling is filled with quaint character and natural beauty. Tent pitches, caravan parks, holiday rentals, and glamping pods provide unique outdoor getaways near the village’s artistic history and nature escapes. Step into South Downs National Park for a glimpse of ancient woodlands, rolling hills, and river valleys. In Chichester Harbour Area of Natural Beauty, campers can tour one of South East England’s few remaining undeveloped coastal areas, where flocks of Brent geese, Kingfishers, and swans live. Nearby, New Forest National Park features garden walks, historical rifle ranges, and even a golf course with a view.

Where to go

South Downs National Park

With over 3,300 kilometres of hiking, biking, horseback riding, and paddling trails, South Downs National Park is considered one of Britain’s Breathing Spaces. Set up at on-site tent and caravan pitches, farmstays, shepherd huts, or yurts, many of which include amenities like hookups, firepits, and picnic tables. Take in tree-covered canopies and open hillsides, or get a sky view while hang-gliding or paragliding into South Downs. As a designated International Dark Sky Reserve, campers can experience rare sightings of celestial bodies and constellations right from the campsites.

Chichester Harbour Area of Natural Beauty

Cruise southeast to the coast and visit Chichester Harbour Area of Natural Beauty. Popular for boating and bird watching, the undeveloped land of Chichester Harbour consists of a series of tidal inlets and wind-worn oaks leading to the sea. Book an organised boat trip on Solar Heritage or Terror to learn more about the harbour and its history. Despite a lack of on-site camping, private holiday parks and campsites are available less than a kilometre from the AONB. They include full hookups, laundry facilities, showers, and wifi.

New Forest National Park

Wander through the majestic trees and wildlife sanctuaries of New Forest National Park. On-site tent pitches and caravan sites are maintained by Camping in the Forest, alongside private holiday parks and cottage rentals that surround the park. Trek through epic redwoods and Douglas Firs on Tall Trees Trail, or enjoy a scenic trip in the motorhome along Rhinefield Ornamental Drive. Get a glimpse of rare species at New Forest’s sanctuaries, especially the Dartford warbler, New Forest ponies, southern damselfly, and the adder—Britain's only poisonous snake.

When to go

Camping near Ditchling is considered a year-round activity, though seasonal weather patterns may change outdoor plans. Late fall to early spring is cold and wet with overcast skies that make winter months a bit colder. In contrast, late spring to early fall is an ideal time for campers to hike and play on long, warm days. Summer temperatures average around a high of 19°C and tend to be highly populated with tourists and vacationers.
