Beech Estate Woodland Campsite

Camping in Sussex – visit our Beech Estate Woodland Campsite

Explore the forest, relax around the campfire and sleep (almost) under the stars with a stay at Eco Camp UK’s Beech Estate Woodland Campsite. Set on the edge of a beautiful 600-acre woodland near Battle in East Sussex, our off-grid campsite offers glamping and camping in Sussex among the trees from April to October.

Set up your own tent in a Forest Tent Pitch or choose the “wild glamping” option to stay in one of our pre-erected bell tents, with beds and cooking equipment provided. If you really want to get away from it all, you might like the seclusion of our Faraway pitches or, for a pitch with a view, choose our extra-special Valley View pitch. We also have pitches especially for hammock campers and a number of dedicated areas which offer space for groups to camp together. For further information about group options at our campsites please click here.


The woodland is part of a privately-owned estate in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is yours to explore during a stay with us. You’ll be able to discover beautiful wildflower meadows and spot birds, butterflies and insects as you head out on woodland walks and mountain bike rides through the forest or try your hand at den building or bushcraft.

We try to minimise our impact on the environment and provide an experience based on the freedom of wild camping with the basics taken care of. There’s no electricity and no amplified music allowed on site and cars are parked away from the camping area so you can switch off and enjoy the surroundings. We have a small block of flushing toilets in the main camping area, but try to limit our water use by providing composting toilets elsewhere on site and our highly-recommended open-air bucket showers.

Our beautiful campsite is surprisingly close to London and Brighton, and is very near to the south coast and it’s beaches. It is a great base for those wanting to explore the East Sussex countryside and coast or to visit the historic sites at Battle, Hastings and Lewes.
