Camp Fire Marshmallows

The Experience

The all inclusive package includes the following:
Choice of tent pitch on arrival, maximum pitches just 20, so plenty of space to spread out.
Friday night supper of Bolognaise with Crusty Bread, followed by roasting marsmallows over the firepit watching the sun go down.
Saturday morning a full cooked breakfast followed by organised games and activities for the children,
including facepainting, arts and crafts, giving you some well deserved ‘time out’. But you’re are welcome to join in.
Unlimited tea, coffee, water and soft drinks are available throughout the weekend from the help your self
refreshment tent.
A picnic lunch is provided on Saturday lunchtime.
The silent disco starts at 4pm on Saturday afternoon in the marquee, so get those sequins on and bust your
best moves. Saturday evening supper is served from 6pm, with a great menu including veggie options. Take your
blankets and eat under the stars or gather around the main firepit. Head to the pay bar and grab a glass of
something. Lager, ales, wine and G&T all available.
No we’re not done yet....
At 9.30pm, head over to the main marquee and settle down on deckchairs or blankets and enjoy the
movie.
Breakfast will be served from the refreshment area between 8am and 9am. You’re welcome to chill out
in the field for a few hours before heading out to explore the local area, there’s so much to see and do.

Meet Sara & the Team

A little about Sara the team and her fabulous field

In 2017 Sara bought a field. And yes many of her family and friends thought she was bonkers.. to be honest so did she. The plan was to create a small eco friendly low key campsite on half the field, enough to generate a small income to support the creation of a wildlife area on the other half, an allotment to enable self sufficiency and allowing her to offer it to local schools and youth groups to use free of charge during term time. 


Sadly planning was turned down for the camp site, so it was back to the drawing board. But she could often be seen just sitting in her somewhat shabby field with her spaniel Ruby (who spent most of the time in the ditches...) watching the butterflies, slow worms, foxes, ducks, birds and occasionally the totally stunning Marsh Harrier. She has planted 15 rare Black Poplar trees as part of an initiative with Sussex Wildlife Trust and Wakehurst Place to re introduce this beautiful native tree to the UK. There are also 50 Willow trees planted in the bottom field, which in 12 years time, will be made into cricket bats – exciting. Undeterred, Sara saw an opportunity to share her little rough around the edges field and started to plan a ‘pop up’ camping experience for weary home working, home schooling, home entertaining mums and dads.


Sara and her amazing team (just the 3 of us, but with a combined 130 years of event management experience... impressive!) set about the planning of the 12 weekend events and whilst we have worked incredibly hard to think of everything, we are sure we might not get it 100% right and ask for your
patience and understanding in this our first year. Your enjoyment and safety are paramount, but if you do need anything or spot a potential problem, please do come and talk to one of the team and we will do everything possible to resolve it quickly and efficiently.


Sara is just so pleased to be finally able to share her little bit of land and realise a long held dream of working outside and developing her nature reserve for future generations.

Sara is first aid trained, has her DBS certificate and food hygiene certificates. She will be on site at all times.
