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 around 30 campers at any one time so space should be plentiful. Campers will be free to choose where they wish to pitch within the camping field.
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 can be hired and will be allowed on these 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. We do not allow open fires on the ground or disposable BBQs on site as these would damage the ground. All fires must be kept at least 2.5 metres away from any tent or other flammable objects.
Our site is at Great Danegate Farm in East Sussex, 5 miles south of Tunbridge Wells.
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 (Friday and Saturday nights, extended on bank holiday weekends). Unlike many sites, we do not insist you book for two nights for a weekend stay. Arrival time on Friday is 5-7pm and on Saturday anytime from 9am. Check out time is up to 5pm on either day. Indeed, you are very welcome to arrive at 9am on Saturday and leave at 5pm on Sunday, thereby making the most of your £12. And we do not charge extra for cars.
