Wowo is a family orientated campsite in the heart of sussex surrounded by beautiful countryside.
We specialise in the things that we think are essential to great camping here at Wowo:
1. Campfires - We think camping just isn't the same without a crackling campfire to sit
around when it gets dark, cook on and keep you warm.
2. We are a family campsite - children and dog friendly, allowing
families to camp together in groups.
3. We have a varied selection of Mongolian Yurts for those campers looking
for added luxury whilst retaining the rustic style of the outdoors.
All of this is surrounded by our beautiful Sussex countryside with a small Brook that runs through the centre of the campsite and provides water edge camping. Our special Tipi Trail is woodland camping at its best also nestled alongside the Brook.

We LOVE Wowo!

Liked: The staff are helpful and friendly. The fields to pitch in are great with lots of trees around the edge. Fabulous swings and tyres hanging from the trees - the kids had a ball. Camp fires encouraged. Nice vibe amongst fellow campers. Just a very relaxing and fun place to stay.
Disliked: Loos and showers are not great. It's a bit of pain that you have to take your rubbish with you. (Who has the space for a big bag of smelly rubbish in the car when going home from a camping weekend?!)
From the manager...

The Bluebell railway is almost right next door to our farm. Turn right out of the Bluebell railway entrance and walk along footpath until it ends, then cross over the road to walk on grass verge round that hairy bend where you will see the entrance to the Bluebell industrial estate opposite you. To the right of the entrance are some steps leading up to our field. Walk around this field parallel with the road to reach our main track which will lead you down to our reception. Welcome to Wapsbourne manor farm, the adventure begins!
