A convivial rural campsite with 15 pitches in a hilltop grassy meadow in the Garden of England. Play in the wildflowers, cook atop your campfire, or just plain chill.

A few years ago, Sasha and Philip Eason bought the eight grassy acres of Little Pett Bottom Farm and it wasn’t long before they were lured outside by the colourful wildflowers and fluttering garden birds. After camping amid the greenery of their private paddock with family and friends, they began to realise how much fun could be had by pitching a tent on their doorstep. Now they have unbolted the meadow gate, set down the basic facilities and opened up their pristine pastures to the everyday camper.

Nestled in the Kent Downs, surrounded by ancient trees, The Sunnyfield boasts a hilltop position that's blessed with sunlight all day long, hence its name chosen by Sasha and Philip’s children. Arrival is tinged with anticipation as you wind your way through narrow lanes, the banks overgrown with cow parsley and long grass, to this truly secluded spot in the Kentish countryside. As you pull through the gate, you’re greeted with a generous open space for just 25 pitches and a car-free site perfect for kids.

Refreshingly understated, ablutions consist of composting loos, cleverly-converted horsebox showers, and there are standing pipe taps dotted around the site which supply easy access to running water. There's also a new undercover 99% recycled washing-up station, so you can wash up in the dry. Other than that, this is an unadulterated meadow and it's such simplicity that creates the real charm of the site. It provides a rustic, traditional camping experience, with campfires at each pitch and dogs welcomed. When you’re done larking in the flowers or clambering among the trees, you can clean-off a short stroll down the hill to the farm yard undercover of the Atcost barn where a brand new hub-come-haven has been created with horsebox coffee shop, straw bale breakfast cafe and, the pièce de résistance, a fantastic new Italian outdoor oven ready for delicious wood-fired pizzas and other smokey outdoor delights including the Argentinian classic, 'dirty beef' with chimichurri salsa, and butterflied spring lamb.

Such seclusion need not cut you off entirely and those willing to re-emerge from their cocoon in the countryside will find themselves poised to make the most of South East England. By car the beaches of Dymchurch, Sandgate and Folkestone are less than half an hour away, while historic Canterbury with its distinctive cathedral is just a 15 minute drive. Then of course there are the myriad quaint local villages with excellent pubs and restaurants, while top walking and cycling routes are on the doorstep for those who want a more vehicle-free holiday. The Sunnyfield have teamed up with a local independent bike shop to offer you a full range of bikes and itineraries to keep you busy all weekend or just an afternoon. Canoe trips can also be arranged – just cycle to the canoe station drop your bikes and head up river your bikes will be waiting for you at the other end for your journey home. A wide range of bikes and accessories are available including leisure, MTB, road riders kids bikes & tug alongs at excellent weekend rates. All come with helmet, lock, map and handy tool kit. They can even offer electric bikes for this who are really taking it easy (sorry no motors for canoes!).

For those looking to recharge the batteries, keep your eyes peeled for The Sunnyfield's summertime wellness retreats. featuring pilates, yoga and lovely health-conscious vegetarian cuisine courtesy in this most reinvigorating of settings.

The Sunny Field is the working definition of ‘simple but effective’. Sasha and Philip saw a space made perfect for camping and thought, 'if something ain't broke, don't fix it!' Wildlife still enlivens the hedgerows and tranquility is still the word – rural camping at its best.
