Kitts Cottage Campsite in West Sussex

A truly beautiful site set in the heart of unspoilt Sussex countryside, but within easy access of London and the South coast. Extensive footpaths and seven minute amble to local award winning pub. Camp fires allowed.

The camping ground is set in and around a natural glade - a forest clearing if you like, although in this case the open area that surrounds the site runs to nearly 20 acres. Pitches are set both in the glade itself or along the outside of its circular edge.

It is a tranquil and totally natural area, which really is very beautiful. Its quite high relative to the surrounding countryside, so the views can be spectacular. However, at the same time, the lie of the land and woods to the west means that the site is very sheltered, even on the windiest of days.

?Because it is such a special area, our aim is to have as little impact on the immediate environment as possible. On that basis, while there are a series of discreet loos and a central washing area, there are currently no shower units and therefore no hot water. There is a cold water shower area, but we would advise washing in trunks or swimsuits because the outside shower is "au naturel"

Children are obviously very welcome and we have designated a mown area where they can play football, fly kites and generally muck around, in total freedom and safety.

Well behaved dogs are also welcomed and again, there is an area set aside for them to let off steam as well. All that we ask is that dogs are kept on a lead and that any calling cards are promptly cleared up and removed.

There are many more attractions available to those who are willing to travel a little further. There is the beautiful county town of Lewes a short drive away with its eclectic range of craft and country shops. In the other direction lies Haywards Heath, for what should probably be described as a more modern shopping experience.

Ashdown Forest and Pooh bridge and the magnificent South Downs are also close and there are numerous gardens either temporaily or like Borde Hill for example, permanently open to the public.

Of course one of the other things that Sussex prides itself on is its locally produced beer (Harvey's) and the quality of its pubs. The Sloop will require no further introduction (even though it offers Greene King), but The Coach and Horses at Danehill, The Rainbow at Cooksbridge and The Jolly Sportsman in East Chiltington are all within a ten minute drive. Booking is essential.
