Travel and Accommodation

Somerley Estate is a 2 hour drive from Brighton. There will be AA road signs to help get you there. Please arrive via GUEST ENTRANCE on Nea Drive. Guests are welcome to arrive from 3.00pm on Wednesday 24th July. The first big top celebration will be on Thursday evening and Kids and Youth groups will start on Saturday morning. 

We love camping at Focus! At the St Peter’s Village we welcome all kind of tents and non-electric caravans. Please note motorised caravans and campervans will have to be in the electric pitch campsite a short walk away from the St Peter’s Village. Over the years we have gathered top tips, look out for an email as we draw closer with handy hints to make your camping more like glamping!

You can bring your own tent if you want. Book your pitch (just £20 per person) here. Log in to your account to add this to your booking. If you don't have a tent, you can hire one. Tent 2 Hire have a fantastic range of tents and camping equipment available. And they'll even pitch your tent for you, so it's ready when you arrive. You need to arrange and pay for this hire via the Tent 2 Hire website. The £20 camping pitch charge per person still applies to this option.

Meal Deal 

We want to encourage community and friendships at Focus and what a better way to do this than over delicious meals.
