The following are some of the comments made by our lovely campers following their stay our Eco Camp UK’s East Sussex campsite at Beech Estate Woodland Campsite;
“Hi – just wanted to say thank you so much for a wonderful w/end at Beech Estate! What a special place. We stayed in our own bell tent and loved the camping grounds… we (baby Max, hubby and I) had a good giggle in the “bucket” shower! The loo was spotless although I was a little nervous. All in all a super w/end and Laura was so helpful and nothing was too much to ask! Also thanks for helping us unload our rather large load! thank you! sitting by the fire under the stars was just what we needed – now for the massive load of smelly washing xxx” Jacqueline and Family (August 2012 – Beech Estate Woodland Campsite)
“Awesome first time camping for me! Brilliant campsite and fantastic, helpful and friendly staff! Will be back again!!!”

“Hugh, Just a quick e mail to say what a brilliant site! We thoroughly enjoyed it. The faraway pitch was great. Will definitely come back. Am going to try and get another couple, you could easily get two tents on that pitch. Sorry we didn’t catch up properly, but thanks for all your help. All the best.” Scott (August 2012 – Beech Estate Woodland Campsite)
Finally the rain has held off and Paul has been up at the West Sussex Campsite building away while I’m stuck in the office doing accounts!
There’s a new storage shed to hold the kindling for the campsite campfires and importantly keep the kindling dry. The sandpit sand has been collected and and the sandpit has been lined.
Tomorrow we will be filling the water storage units and preparing the bell tent carpets up at the farm storage area.
We still have a few glamping bell tents left free to book for May Bank Holiday for our opening week, but hurry as we are nearly full. The second weekend in March is already fully booked.Read more
Wild Boar Wood Campsite – of course we think it’s the coolest campsite in Sussex (and possibly the UK) – will be opening for the May 4th Bank Holiday Weekend. There is still some camping availability on all three nights.
Our campsite in the woods has campfires – nothing like sitting next to an open fire at night – glamping in lovely bell tents, wood-fired shower, eco loos and a beautiful setting in the Sussex High Weald close to both Brighton and London.
We just hope the poor weather predicted for this week stays away long enough thereafter for us to get everything set up in time. Paul has put a new roof on the shower, built a sandpit for the kids and we have moved the eco toilet. The last few little jobs need to be done – including building the campsite compost heap, putting up the new cover for the central campfire and lots of little jobs around the site.
At least if we get rid of any rain now we are certain for great weather for the May campsite re-opening!
Hope to see you eco camping in the woods of West Sussex soon!
If you are looking for a campsite close to Brighton and London, look no further!
Our Wild Boar Wood campsite near Haywards Heath, is also nearby to Brighton – only 30 minutes if you know the shortcut through Ditchling and Slugwash Lane. The Woodland Campsite – many of our campers are calling it Sussex’s Best Campsite – is also near to London. Handy to the M23, it means that after a hard day in the office in London or Brighton you can be relaxing around the campfire while most other campers are still on the road.
The other benefit is our Bell Tents, kitted out with almost everything you need, means no more tripping over in the dark putting up your tent. Instead you will be cooking on our campfire grills and enjoying a drink, instead of battling traffic and erecting your tent in the dark.
Come and camp off-grid at Eco Camp UK.Read more
Hi All – Please excuse the higglety pigglety formatting of this post. I wanted to put in our first newsletter ever, but it proved more difficult that I thought!
The newsletter looked great – honest it did! But I couldn’t figure out how to re-format it.
So instead – here’s a link to the original (I hope) - CLICK HERE.
