Friendly camping and glamping on a Sussex farm, with animals to meet, a pond to swim in, and the South Downs nearby.

Welcome to the farm. Along with ample wildlife, ancient woodland and animals, including pigs, goats, and Highland cows, Cattlestone Farm’s 60 acres is also home to a superb little campsite that's garnered quite the reviews since it first opened. "Friendliest owners ever!" reads one. "One of the best campsites I've ever been to", says another. And, er, "best loo with a view", is a frequent comment heard. In fact, Cattlestone Farm doesn't have some hidden secret. Hosts, Donna and Alan, just love what they do and know how to get it right. And it shows. It's surely one of the greatest campsites near the South Downs.

Set in the West Sussex countryside, guests can pitch a tent or pull up their motorhome in a sprawling wildflower meadow, surrounded by ancient woodland. Facilities are clean and well-maintained – showers, a toilet block, a washing-up area, and a decent WiFi connection to boot. And there are glamping options in an entirely separate area of the farm if you don't want to camp: Boho-style bell tents provide pre-pitched charm, while a quaint shepherd’s hut is ideal for romantic getaways (the glamping area has private bathroom facilities and an outdoor kitchen).

There are some wonderful touches here to make the site feel like a home away from home. Breakfast and barbecue hampers can be ordered (cook on the firepit that's provided), and although mammoth group bookings aren't allowed, glamping families can book additional single mattresses or small bell tents to sit alongside their own. It's ideal for bringing the kids away with you.

For days out, the boundary of the South Downs National Park is less than 10 minutes away and there are good footpaths near the farm. Take a stomp along the West Sussex Literary Trail, visit a local or vineyard or drive to the gorgeous market town of Petworth, a hub of independent retailers and restaurants. Or for a day at the beach, make your way to the nearby seaside town of Worthing, its award-winning pier providing great views along the coast.

Stitchwort Shepherd's Hut
Glamping and cows
We stayed in the Shepherd hut and it was amazing. The facilities were brilliant. The kitchen area was so comfy and cozy. The farm is quiet and so relaxing, Donna and Alan are super friendly and make you feel like you've known them for years. Every little detail has been thought of. The cows just made it perfect. We absolutely loved it and will 100% be going back. If you want peace and quiet, time to relax and recharge, feel grounded then this is the place. Within 10mins of being there you feel the stress of life leaving. The hut was perfect. Thank you Donna and Alan for such an amazing place to stay.

Fabulous site. Amazing showers.
Fabulous time camping at Cattlestone Farm. Lovely spot and easy access to activities in the surrounding area (highly recommend Arundel and the Wetland Trust). The campsite itself is basic, but the shower and toilet facilities are FABULOUS! Hands down the best we’ve had at a campsite. Spotlessly clean, hot and powerful showers - just luxury! Out 8 yr old also loved meeting Gin and Tonic (the goats 🐐) and Thelma and Louise (the pigs 🐖) Finally, Donna was the most charming and lovely host. Would highly recommend a stay.

Magical stay
Lovely location and lovely hosts! We stayed for two nights with our 3 and 5 year old, and our 8 month old baby, and found the facilities clean and we never had to queue for them. Donna let the children help feed the piggies, and we loved seeing the haymaking, goats and cattle. Will definitely return!

Lovely quiet site
Really lovely hosts and nice, quiet site with good facilities. Lots of space in the field, showers were hot, plenty of toilets. I liked that the fire pits were available to hire and I thought the trolley system worked well to keep cars put of the camping area.

From the host
Set in 60 acres, our 8 acre while flower meadow and 5 acre glamping field are the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of life and just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility. The farm is fringed by woodland and we have an abundance of wildlife as well as our Highland Cows, 3 lovely pigs, pygmy goats and chickens. There are four spotless flushing toilets and showers, together with a double hand wash station, washing up and a freezer for your freezer blocks. We ask you please to bring your own toilet roll.
Nearby attractions

The South Downs National Park is only a 10-minute drive from the site, packed with plenty to do for ramblers, cyclists, and those looking for good food and independent shops. Put on your walking boots and explore the famous South Downs Way, a 100-mile hilly route lined with pubs providing a drink and hearty meal along your journey. Also a 10-minute drive, Southwater Country Park is a great day out for the kids, with a beautiful lake that hosts plenty of watersports such as kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and rowing boats. Fishers Farm Park is another excellent family attraction reachable within a 10-minute drive; this family-run farm lets the little ones interact with a wide selection of animals and also boasts a bunch of other activities such as a soft play area, splash zone, and rides.

Food and drink

The Blacksmiths Arms is a 5-minute drive away, which also houses the '10/10 Restaurant' – well-known locally for its delicious combination of authentic Italian food and pub classics.  The Rising Sun is a 16th-century traditional pub a 10-minute drive away in the pleasant village of Nutbourne, immediately noticeable due to its impressive ivy-covered exterior. There's a menu of pub classics and real ales here, with a shaded beer garden for the summer and regular live music. The Curry Lounge is also 10 minutes away, an Indian restaurant in Ashington that's widely regarded as one of the best of its kind in this region. The jumbo king prawns come highly recommended.
