Why stay here ...

CL of the Year Award 2010 - Regional Winner

My CL is a quiet secluded adults only 2.5 acre lawned field, with electric hook-up facilities. Set in the heart of the Sussex countryside with views across to the South Downs and adjoining Sussex Weald. Opened in 1981, the CL has been landscaped with a variety of specimen trees and shrubs, overlooking a wild flower meadow. The site has won 3 awards being placed 2nd in the 'CL of the Year Award' in 1991 and winners of the 'Regional Award' in 2003 and 2010. 

For members who enjoy winter caravanning hard standing areas are available overlooking the CL field. The site is excellent for walking and the nearby picturesque village of Cuckfield which offer shops, pubs and restaurants can be reached by an enjoyable walk across fields. The South Downs, Ditchling Beacon, Jack and Jill Windmills and Ashdown Forest are all within easy reach from the site.

Beautiful gardens and National Trust properties including Nymans, Wakehurst Place and Sheffield Park gardens are all nearby. Also of great interest is the famous Bluebell Railway, where daily trips of nostalgia can be enjoyed. 

Strictly 1 dog only by arrangement with the owner. We charge £1.50 per night for a dog which is then donated to Sussex Air Ambulance.

Minimum 2 night stay. Sorry no groundsheets.

Beautiful Site

This is a wonderful site which has been lovingly maintained. Set in beautifully landscaped ground, lawned with mature trees and shrubs and a wild flower area, it is very spacious so plenty of room around your caravan. There is also a well stocked information room. We would definately return here in the future.

It did the business for us

We were looking for a site in order to do some local touring in the area and Birch Trees Farm was an ideal location. It is a quiet site with immaculate grounds. We stayed in our motorhome on one of the hard-standing pitches which had plenty of space and a convenient electric hook-up. Checking in was easy and the facilities were all that we required - fresh water, local tourist information, rubbish facilities and an easy to use and accessible chemical toilet point. We were visiting local gardens (High Beeches Woodland and Water Garden and Sussex Prairie Garden), as well as the Ditchling Arts+Crafts Museum. I highly recommend this CL.

Best site yet

Thank you Mrs Upton for the welcome on a rival in our MOTORHOME. AFTER reading an earlier review we were not sure of what space we will be given, but need not of been concerned as we had a really nice spot over looking the well kept field of flowers and wild life, this site was a real pleasure to stay at, we will certainly be staying again.

Such a Shame

We stayed B/H May weekend for 4 nights in our Motorhome. Was welcomed by the owner and was asked to pitch up on which was their winter pitch placed behind the field. We asked why couldn't we go on the empty hard standing pitch on the field with lovely views . The owner said that she wanted to keep that free in case a "caravan" came in. It was such a shame as we thought the site was lovely and had a great few days there but felt that being a Motorhome we weren't given the same treatment as a caravan, and could of enjoyed the views on the field especially as the hard standing pitch was empty ALL week end.
