The Secret Campsite is a peaceful, tents only campsite for nature lovers, real campers and their families, who are looking to explore Sussex, Brighton or Lewes.
Our woodland meadow camping pitches are large and secluded and come with their own camp fire pit and free hot showers. We also have a number of unusual shelters where you can spend the night.
By keeping the meadow car and dog free we enable wildlife to flourish, and this increases the number of encounters that you and your family will enjoy. It also ensures that it is a safe place for children to roam freely and explore, and we have an area of woodland where dens can be built and trees climbed.
We are located in a beautiful and sparsely populated part of East Sussex, and our camping meadow is enclosed by both private and public nature sites. These include great stands of ancient and coppiced woodland, and a site of nature conservation interest, SNCI. This mosaic of habitats is incredibly rich in wildlife. The Secret Campsite is lightly managed to create an environment where wildlife can thrive. The surrounding ancient woodland is encouraged to advance at the edges of the camping meadow, ensuring an ever changing diversity of animals and plants for you to watch, hear, eat, smell and touch.
Catch glimpses of deer, hunt for slow worms, wake to the dawn chorus, build dens or simply enjoy the unique flavours of fresh and foraged produce at the end of a busy day.
We also have two secret shelters, The Tree Tent and Gridshell. These are both fantastic quirky accommodation options for your stay in our beautiful site. Both these unique shelters were created by local inventor and designer Jason Thawley. The Tree Tent was even featured on George Clarkes Amazing Spaces TV programme. All stays in The Gridshell and The Tree Tent are for 2 nights / and 3 nights Bank Holidays.
Camp with us and enjoy a beautiful campsite with some great places to explore locally, including beaches, countryside and the vibrant market town of Lewes.
Please note we are a peaceful family site and do not allow groups. For more information, please visit our website.
