What We Offer at embers turners hill, campsite in sussex

What's on site

New this season are table tennis tables and volley ball - great for keeping the kids occupied.  The campsite itself is situated on a spacious field with plenty of room for a family kick about or even a game of rounders with your fellow campers!

We want you to enjoy your stay at Embers just as nature intended, but that doesn’t mean going without top rate facilities! All our bathrooms are kept meticulously clean and have flushing toilets and piping hot showers…a real comfort when you are camping, leaving you refreshed and ready to take on the day ahead, but please don’t forget to bring your own towel, as these aren’t included.

We also have The Embers Hub serving coffees, delicious hot food, all your snack & cold drinks and beer to enjoy under the cover of our large seating area under the stretch tent. Every pitch at Embers comes with its own fire basket for you to enjoy and can even be used to BBQ, with the addition of a tripod and grill.

As dusk draws in, the atmosphere at Embers is really quite special as everyone gets their campfires going, you'll understand why camping is made magical at Embers!

Wine, beer, hot food and coffee at the embers snack bar

New to Embers this year is selling chilled beer, wine and mixers such as G&T and Pimms.  A great way to start your holiday with a cold beverage after a long journey.

Our famous stone-fired pizzas are freshly made on site and individually fired. Available via pre-ordering before you arrive on site - keep an eye out for an email for pre-orders, about 5 days before you arrive on site and sell out so book early.

Wake up in the morning and enjoy a cheese toastie or croissant from the Embers Snack Bar, which stocks all the drink & snack essentials - freshly ground barista coffee to super creamy ice-cream, snacks and ice-cold drinks essential for those hot summer days during your stay.
