Fontmills Farm Campsite


Set in 140 acres of beautiful East Sussex countryside, Fontmills Farm Campsite is the perfect place to take a step back from reality and enjoy an idyllic rural stay in our 20 acre meadow field or glamping site.

Based on a family run farm, the campsite can be found in the low Weald of East Sussex between the popular towns of Eastbourne and Tunbridge Wells.

Whether you’re looking for an al fresco home from home, rest from the city, magical mini break or action-packed family holiday, there are 30 spacious pitches in our camping field allowing you to wake up with the birds and fall asleep under the stars. If you’re looking for the ultimate staycation we also have three fully furnished bell tents on site in our glamping field.

From walking countryside trails and cycling along the tree-lined Cuckoo Trail to visiting local attractions including some of Sussex’s most iconic pubs, coastlines and villages, Fontmills Farm Campsite is located within a hub of excitement.
