The Secret Campsites have three hidden campsites in the beautiful Sussex countryside. We encourage campfires and each campsite provides the chance for campers to experience real camping and wild glamping with a simple focus on nature, peace and space.

Beech Estate has forest tent pitches, family group pitches and secluded glamping bell tents set on the edge of a heavenly 600 acre woodland, on a private 2000 acre estate. The perfect place to roam free in an off grid location with star filled, ink black night skies. Beech Estate is located near the historical town of Battle in East Sussex, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Wild Boar Wood is our off grid glamping only site, with nine bell tents scattered within a 5 acre semi ancient woodland. When you’re not relaxing around the campfire, wandering the woods or building dens you can watch the historic Bluebell Railway as it chugs past the site. Wild Boar Wood is in the heart of Sussex, 35 minutes from Brighton and the coast, and 10 minutes from the Ashdown Forest.

The Secret Campsite Lewes has spacious pitches nestled within an ancient woodland meadow. This woodland clearing is alive with wildlife from snakes to glow worms. You also have the chance to stay up in the branches in our Tree Tent, a fascinating structure suspended between three sturdy oak trees. The Lewes campsite is located just outside Lewes and around 30 minutes from Brighton and the coast.

All of our campsites are kept car, dog and music free to allow our campers to enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature whilst connecting with the wildlife we share the sites with. The only distractions are the dawn chorus, the excited whispers of exploring children, the flash of a dragonfly and the twinkling of stars in the night sky.
