The Secret Campsite Lewes

UK England South East England East Sussex

Brickyard Farm, Town Littleworth, Cooksbridge, Lewes, East Sussex, BN8 4TD

A not so secret campsite in East Sussex with camping and glamping - and campfires encouraged

The secret campsite is, of course, not really very secret at all. Nor does owner Tim want it to be. He wants people to know about it, to come and support his fledgling business and the rural economy nearby. The real secret is just how unique and special this campsite is.

After arriving and parking at the reception and amenities area, occupying the various nondescript buildings of the now defunct garden centre previously located here, visitors grab a wheelbarrow, load up their gear and follow the grassy path up and over an old brick railway bridge. (The railway underneath has long gone, leaving a beautifully overgrown pathway to explore). Accessing the site from the bridge makes it feel isolated, secluded – and just that little bit secret. From this vantage point, it’s easy to take in the features of this place: just 15 hugely spacious pitches cut in to the long grass of this secluded meadow, interspersed with a scattering of recently planted saplings and all encircled with a backdrop of ancient oak and hornbeam trees. Wild flowers are bursting to show off their colours, while the woods beyond are ripe for exploration. In fact, the plan is for plants to be a big part of this site. Tim is a botanist and wants to turn this place into the UK’s first ‘edible campsite’ – a planting programme is underway, with an increasing array of berries, edible shrubs and flowers growing freely, ready for campers to pick fresh and add to the saucepan.

In the meantime, there’s something else growing quickly – and that’s the reputation of the Secret Campsite. Secret? It won't be a secret for very long!

The campsite owner says

The Secret Campsite Lewes is a peaceful, wildlife friendly campsite, for real campers, wild glampers and their families. The campsite is surrounded by Ancient woodland and a Site of Nature Conservation Interest. We don't take groups or dogs, and there are no cars in the camping area which allows campers to explore the wildlife that we have encouraged into the site. Each of our secluded camping pitches has its own fire pit for campfires. We provide excellent showers, toilets and washing up facilities with plenty of hot water, and sell take away hot and cold drinks during reception hours. We have recycling facilities and lots of walks from the site, with maps.
