Common questions people ask before camping at Night Pastures.
It is very private and you are surrounded by farmland and woodland. There is plenty of opportunity for enjoying the West Sussex countryside on foot or by bike. One end of the field (nearest the car parking area) has 4 yurts and a slightly larger yurt, but these are well away from the free range camping area and will not intrude on your camping experience.
The Camping is located in the top area of a very large yurt field, surrounded by farmland and woodland. Parking is a short walk away and wheelbarrows are provided to transport your gear from the car park to the site.

If you’re arriving by train, it’s advisable to get your shopping done in advance, as nearest shop to the farm is 10 minutes drive. There is no Wifi or electricity on site. Each family pitch sleeps up to 6 guests (some of whom must be children) in a single tent. Additional guests and tents by prior arrangement only.

During peak times we have back-to-back bookings so we ask you to kindly vacate your pitch by the agreed time so as to give us a chance to make it lovely again for the next guest.
What time can i party to?
Nightpastures is located in a National Park and the valley we are in resonates for miles around. Fopr guests hiring a single Yurt we ask you to respct the other guests and keep noise levels to a minimum. For people hiring Yurts as part of the main venue hire, we do not permit any amplified music beyond 11.45 pm without a special concession first as other fees apply.
Chichester District Council require us to register for a special event license for any event which will go on past midnight and failure to do so results in an immediate fine for breaching noise pollution statutes and bylaws.
If you are planning your party at Nightpastures, please contact us first with your requirements and be sure to check our booking terms and conditionslisted here on the website.
Incredible, the pace is HUGE it was so quiet but there was so much space that my three kids could run around on the far side of the field and not trouble a soul.
