Here at Fallow Fields, we love all of the wonders of nature. Of course, you can look around our beautiful campsites and know that so much of our heart goes into creating a space that lets you soak up the natural beauty around you. We love the campfires, the fruit growing on the trees, the sheep in the fields, and that distinct sense of peace and calm that comes with rural life.
However, it’s not the only shade of seductive tranquility you’ll find in the great outdoors. When camping at Lathe Barn your just 30 minutes away from Camber Sands, where you’ll find a perfect example of the other stunning natural sight that nature has blessed this wonderful part of the country with.
Camber Sands is a dog-friendly beach – and a rather lovely one at that. Importantly, this is a sand beach. Now, at Fallow Fields, we’re fans of all kinds of beaches. The scenic, the historic, the downright pebbly. But, we understand that nothing can compare to the feeling of golden grains between your toes as the sea breeze provides a touch of coolness on a hot summer's day. When you’re camping near Camber Sands, that’s all nearby, weather permitting.
To be clear, there’s many amazing beach and coastal spots near both of our Selson Farm and Lathe Barn campsites. There’s no shortage of areas to build a sandcastle or two. With all that though, we still consider this one the absolute finest that this part of the country has to offer.
First off, there’s the sheer jaw-dropping beauty of the place. To say it’s easy on the eye would be an understatement: it just doesn’t do justice to being there. Cosmic sand dunes, deep blue seas, clean, crisp, beautifully preserved and unspoiled: it’s sheer beach magic. It may be better for many in the sunshine but make no mistake, this is an astoundingly delightful place to be whatever the weather.
It’s also a place with the scope to allow you to have pretty much whatever kind of beach day out you want. You can sit back and take in the ambience, feel the waves lap up against you with the tide, or just explore those great sand dunes. You could kitesurf – there’s actually a rather passionate kitesurfing community here, as it happens – or take a scenic walk or cycle. Some people have even taken to kite buggying around its transportive sands.
Elsewhere, there’s plenty of great historical sites nearby. That includes some rather amazing architecture just a mile or two away if you want to make Camber Sands just part of that afternoon’s exploration. Truthfully though, beach lovers will find plenty of reasons to stay right here for many hours.
That, we would say, makes the 30 or so minutes drive from Lathe Barn more than worth your while. You can even get there from Selson Farm, although that would likely take you more than an hour. Still, considering just how utterly magical Camber Sands can be, it’s something we can recommend from whichever camp you’re staying at as our guests at Fallow Fields.
