From Our Website
Welcome to our website full of all you need to know about our campsite here in the heart of Sussex. 4. We believe the great outdoors to be healing and educational. We host a huge range of Workshops to nurture and support this belief, as well as making your stay extra fun for all ages. All of this is surrounded by our beautiful Sussex countryside with the Pellingford Brook running through the centre of the campsite providing water edge camping. Our special Tipi Trail is woodland camping at its best also nestled alongside the Brook.
The name Wapsbourne is the modern version of the older Sussex names of Whapplesbourne, Werpplesborne and other derivatives. The name means 'a track by the stream'. This track leads you from Lewes to East Grinstead, right past the Elizabethan Manor house built in the late 15th C. Wapsbourne was once part of the Sheffield Park Estate, auctioned into private hands in 1953 when the estate of several thousand acres was broken up. Following a bumper potato crop, in a drought year when other growers on lighter soil had low yields, Bill Cragg of Brooker Farm in Kent, purchased Wapsbourne Manor Farm in1978 to use the streak of Tunbridge Wells green sand to grow strawberry runners.
