We will be serving breakfast as normal (delivered on a tray to your door), but if you would prefer we can also offer our apartment on a self-catering basis. For up-to-date information please phone Shirley on 01273 841244.

Blackberry Wood 

Blackberry Wood will be open from 4 July.

“We have increased deep cleaning of all our facilities, hand sanitisers around the site, cleaning stations for guests, managed queuing systems at check-in and shower blocks and limited numbers allowed inside our on-site shop.

Our campsite has very low density anyway and pitches are well separated and most of them very large so it is easy to socially distance whilst on site. We believe camping to be one of the safest and healthiest activities you can do, especially during these times and we are looking forward to a busy season ahead.”

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft is set to reopen on Thursday 16 July 2020, for a limited number of visitors who book in advance.

The museum, which tells the story of the artists and craftspeople who made Ditchling a creative hub in the 20th century, will initially welcome back visitors for four days a week with extensive safety measures in place to protect both staff and visitors.

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft will open with new exhibition tillage by John Newling. The show, which was originally planned for an April opening, will feature works spanning the past 40 years of the artist’s career, alongside new works created during the UK lockdown. The exhibition, with its focus on the relationship between people, nature and place, feels particularly resonant in our current times.
