In the country club

Couple of landscapes from the weekend; me, Dan, Ant, Alec and Vic had a weekend camping in West Sussex; jolly nice it was – lots of warm walks in soft rain, bonfires, games of rounders and pints of Meteor.

Hook Farm, between the lovely villages of West Hoathly and Ardingly, is a beautiful spot to camp; secluded, huge, and beautiful. We’ve stayed here two years running now, and I’d be surprised if we don’t return. Here’s the campsite.

Yesterday we went on a long ramble – starting at the Ardingly Inn and touring the grounds of the local prep school (Ardingly College, which schooled Ian Hislop and a million Tory MPs) and the nearby reservoir. The views were pretty spectacular and, pleasingly, the weather held out.

Today my body aches gratifyingly.

  1. Oh, this does look lovely!
    Is it easy to get there by public transport, (or bicycle), or do you need a car?
    I really want to get one more camping trip in before the summer subsides altogether.

    • It’s not far from Brighton, but it wouldn’t be that easy without a car. But you could get the train to Haywards Heath and then (I think) get the bus (or a taxi), or even cycle from there (it’s about seven miles I think).

      Here’s the website. It’s a really lovely place.
