The Secret Campsite Beech Estate

UK England South East England East Sussex Battle

Tent pitch camping and wild glamping in a Sussex woodland hideaway

There’s camping, and then there’s off-grid camping. Eco Camp at Beech Estate is most definitely the latter – no electricity, no mobile phone signal and a wheelbarrow for weaving your gear through the trees to the tent – if that all sounds like too much effort, then you may want to move on in search for something more suitable. If it sounds like the perfect escape, you’re in for a real treat.

Beech Estate is one of three campsites from the 'Secret Campsites' group – the others being a bell-tent-only affair at Wild Boar Wood in West Sussex and meadow camping and glamping at The Secret Campsite near Lewes. The Beech Estate site is the largest of the three. Set in the utmost of sylvan seclusion, the wild glamping bell tents are spaced out in individual clearings in the woods of an estate that spreads, in total, across some 2000 acres. If that doesn’t sound like camping heaven already, then just wait for the punchline: the 600 acres of woodland on which the campsite is located is for the exclusive use of guests to walk, mountain bike and generally run wild.

For those who think it isn't really camping until you've set up shelter yourself, there is a selection of 'pitch your own' tent spots, as well as a some in a tranquil meadow clearing.

Additional 'faraway' woodland pitches are available on a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside and wild-glamping bell tents are also available, complete with beds, chairs, a picnic table, cookware, a firepit, logs and an eco cooking stove. It’s fair to say these are functional rather than luxuriously appointed, but then that's just what you’d expect in this off-grid, back-to-basics paradise.
