Kitts Cottage Campsite is a beautiful, grassy campsite surrounded by ancient woodland; deep in the Sussex High Weald yet close to many delightful visitor attractions. The unusual name references an ancient settlement that once occupied the two acre clearing of Little Kitts. The campsite has lots of open space for children to play, allows camp fires and BBQs, and has solar-powered facilities. You can enjoy a uniquely rural experience in stunning countryside and benefit from the rejuvenating effects of nature.
There are plentiful opportunities to explore the local area. Three public footpaths radiate out from the campsite; heading along ancient routeways once used for hauling timber out of the surrounding woods. Head beyond the woodland and you can easily walk to the National Trust’s Sheffield Park – where four lakes created by the famous landscape gardener, Capability Brown, form the centrepiece of the stunning gardens. Also at Sheffield Park, you can hop on the puffing steam trains of the Bluebell Railway, and serenely travel through the High Weald landscape as if in a bygone era. Why not jump off the train at Horsted Keynes and walk back through fields and woods to the campsite? A sure way of working up a good appetite!
The campsite owners also own and manage the nearby Sloop Inn: a delightful country pub with great food and beer only half a mile away on one of the public footpaths. If you tire of cooking for yourself at the campsite, it’s the perfect place for an evening meal and pint before a torch-lit walk back through the woods!
