Gumber Camping Barn (Formerly known as Gumber Bothy) is a converted Sussex flint barn on a working sheep farm within the National Trust’s Slindon Estate. It provides simple overnight accommodation or camping for walkers, horse riders and cyclists, just off the South Downs Way, or a tranquil and remote location to get away from it all.

Five minutes’ walk from Stane Street, the Roman Road that crosses the South Downs Way at Bignor Hill, facilities include sleeping platforms in 3 dorms sleeping up to 25, basic kitchen and bathroom facilities, BBQ, drying room, bike racks, payphone. Wheelchair accessible (please phone for details). There is also a campsite available

Sorry, but as the Camping Barn is on a sheep farm, no dogs and most definitely NO CARS. Not suitable for under fives.
