The forty-two acres of Woodcraft Park Farm, near the picturesque village of Lurgashall in West Sussex, offer tremendous scope for both small and larger group camps. Lurgashall is situated in the South Downs National Park, surrounded by miles of beautiful countryside to enjoy.
The site has been sensitively developed for traditional camping while offering amenities such as toilets and hot showers. and includes a range of facilities. There are opportunities for a range of activities, including archery.
Camping is our main focus at Woodcraft Park Farm. We can accommodate up to 100 campers at any one time. Our site contains several camping fields as well as woodland. In our barn there is a games room and hall in case of wet weather, and there are toilet blocks with hot showers.
There is also a playground area with a fitness trail and zip-line. Archery targets and equipment can be provided for groups.

Over the past year and a half your Park Farm committee has been hard at work developing and maintaining the site to make it as pleasant a place as possible to bring your group for a weekend (or week!) away in some of the most beautiful countryside in the South East. We have been developing our vision for the site which centres around 3 themes; Bushcraft, Sustainability, and Development of the site.
Bushcraft – we are hoping to establish Park Farm as a leading centre for Bushcraft practice and learning, with training courses for those who want to learn, and a supply of equipment and tools.
Sustainability – we want to make Park Farm a beacon of sustainability within the Woodcraft Folk. We aim to make Park Farm as self-sufficient as possible as soon as possible, using solar panels, wind turbines, and even geothermal energy. We have recently installed new recycling facilities and a compost pit for food waste.
Development of the site – having cleared away much of the scrap and rubbish from the site we have been busy installing new guttering and fire alarms in the barn, which has also been freshly painted, making the buildings a more useful resource than previously. We are currently installing new doors and ramps to make the barn more accessible to those with disabilities. We are also in the process of refurbishing the playground/fitness trail, building a campfire pit and creating an assault course in the woods. There are many more plans afoot too! Remember there are already some great activities to be enjoyed at Park Farm, such as nature walks, archery equipment, a screen in the barn for projecting movies, and some friendly local badgers and bats.
