The UK's best kept secret, woodland glamping in the heart of Sussex with fires...

The team behind Eco Camp UK at Wild Boar Wood take secrecy seriously. So seriously in fact, the exact location of this semi-luxury campsite is only revealed upon booking. And who could blame them for wanting to keep the location of this magnificent bell tent site under wraps? For after carefully making your way through the meandering country lanes of this particularly lovely corner of West Sussex, Eco Camp's secret instructions will lead you to the main five acre bluebell wood which you'll call home for the weekend and quite possibly never want to leave.

Wild Boar Wood is located right on the High Weald – a captivating Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that spreads across a vast stretch of Kent and Sussex. The woods and surrounding fields are home to a rich array of wildlife; from woodpeckers and butterflies to owls and deer.

The nine bell tents tucked amongst the trees make for a cosy, hassle-free stay. Moreover, every aspect of your holiday has been considered with sustainability in mind; from the wood-fired showers and green-friendly shampoos, to the special eco loos that accompany the more ordinary flushing toilet type. It all gives the place a green edge that suits the type of 'wild glamping' they provide. But don't take our word for it, you'll have to go to find out…

Nearby

Wild Boar Wood is located right on the High Weald— a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ashdown Forest is also close to the site and is famously known as the home of Winnie the Pooh. This stunning area has an enviable array of walks and cycle routes and, should you wish to explore in a more laid-back way, the Bluebell Railway is a charming steam locomotive that travels from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead. The Capability Brown designed Sheffield Park and Garden is well worth a visit and can be reached by car in about 10 mins. Borde Hill, one of the country's most magnificent gardens, is around 5 mins drive away. Other attractions include Heaven Farm and the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum. If its restaurants, shops and nightlife you seek, boho beach town Brighton is only a 30 min drive away.

Food & Drink

There is no shop on sight but some excellent pubs and farm shops are within walking distance. The most notable of these is the award-winning High Weald Dairy; why not take part in one of their cheese-making courses? There are two great pubs within a mile and a half of Wild Boar Wood. The Sloop Inn is a traditional Sussex pub serving up classic pub fayre using locally sourced produce. The Green Man in Horsted Keynes is the quintessential English pub— right on the village green.

The Owner Says

We think there’s something magical about Wild Boar Wood, our off-grid glamping site in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in West Sussex.

The campsite has just nine bell tents in a woodland that is filled with bluebells and birdsong in springtime. Den building is allowed, campfires are encouraged and waving at the steam trains passing on The Bluebell Railway is practically obligatory. Tent pitch camping is available at Beech Estate Campsite.

The Wild Boar Wood Campsite is in a secret location. Once bookings are confirmed, campers are provided with detailed instructions to locate the car park if driving. Once there, they have areas for car parking away from the pitches. Cars may not be driven to your pitch. Wheelbarrows are provided to move your equipment to the pitch (and the wardens will assist if you need it). It may be a five-minute walk – but it’s worth it once you set up not to have cars in the campsite. Much safer for kids as well!
