Boathouse Farm Camping

The best kept secret in East Sussex

Camping in the heart of the Sussex countryside

About Us

Boathouse Farm has been a traditional livestock and arable organic family farm for over 40 years.

We started to offer camping in 2008 and word quickly spread that camping on our farm is the best kept secret in Sussex.

Pitch your tent on our beautiful fields next to the tranquil River Ouse where a short walk away is the Anchor Pub. There you can eat a wide range of delicious food and hire a rowing boat on a gorgeous summer day. Other attractions include the Isfield Farm Shop, the historic Lavender Line, and the Isfield village pub The Laughing Fish. The farm is surrounded by many peaceful and beautiful country trails and the stunning South Downs

Kids will have a great time, this is the perfect place for them and you can have fun fishing in our river!

We realise that camping wouldn’t be the same without a campfire, so why not bring your own or hire one of our fire pits and snuggle up with a blanket or even toast some marshmallows.

We provide flushing loos, hot showers and washing up facilities. You can also order Breakfast and BBQ packs supplied by the Isfield Farm shop for collection from camping reception.

The major unique point of Boathouse Farm is the space – space for children of all ages to run around and space so you don’t find yourself camping on top of your neighbour. Your stay with us will be a real camping experience in the countryside; you will be able to experience nature at its best.
