About Campfire Weekends

Campfire Weekends was launched in 2012 and set out to provide a network of high quality, low density sites in remote rural locations across the UK.  Campsites will be open at weekends only, will be situated within an hour or so of major cities and towns, and will be adults-only.  Campfires will be a key feature. A decent rural pub will be within a mile or two of most sites.

The aim is to capture the essence of a good village pub and replicate it on a campsite.  Somewhere people can come in small groups, as couples or, even, on their own and feel comfortable.  A place where one can either join in a lively conversation with other campers or simply enjoy the atmosphere in a quiet corner of the site.  In order to keep unwanted noise to a minimum we have a lower age limit of 21.

With numbers restricted to sixty campers per site space should be plentiful.  Campers will be free to choose where they wish to pitch.  Space between pitches should be generous.

In one part of the site there will be a communal area comprising pub-style garden bench/tables centred round a large campfire.  The fire will have a number of grills so that campers can cook or heat up a kettle for a cup of tea.

Private campfires will be allowed on specially designed wood-burning grates so that campers can enjoy their own log fire near their tent and, if they choose, cook their breakfast, lunch or supper.

Our first site is at Green Hedges Farm in East Sussex and is the pilot for the new venture.

We charge £12 per person per night.  Our prices reflect the fact that we are a small scale, low density site, open at weekends only.  We are at the higher end of the scale but are are still less expensive than a number of comparable sites in the South East.  Unlike many sites, we do not insist you book for two nights for a weekend stay.  Indeed, you are very welcome to arrive at 9am on Saturday and leave at 7pm on Sunday, thereby making the most of your £12.  And we do not charge extra for cars.
