The BEECH ESTATE CAMPSITE is open April to October.
Beech Estate is one of The Secret Campsites, a collection of Real Camping and Wild Glamping sites focused on nature, peace and space. The site is an off-grid campsite with fully equipped bell tents and ‘bring your own tent’ forest pitches, including faraway tent pitches. All our bell tents and tent pitches allow campfires and are set inside a beautiful woodland area.
Beech Estate Woodland Campsite is located in East Sussex near the historic town of Battle, within easy distance of London, Hastings and the South Coast.
The campsite is located within the 2,000-acre private Beech Estate; a classified Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and nestled on the edge of a 600-acre woodland. The woodland offers limitless walks, forest rises perfect for mountain bike riding and areas for kids to make dens and run wild. Guests at the campsite have the exclusive use of the Estate’s woodlands, as there is no access for the general public.
We have a number of tent pitches for hire. These are set apart in clearings in our beautiful woodland location. Campers wanting to feel very secluded, might like to try our "faraway tent pitches” which are set on top of a hill looking over Bracken Valley. These very private, although there is a short additional walk to the toilets and shower.
Our lovely bell tents are set in the woods and each has it’s own campfire-pit. The bell tents offer a unique, off-grid 'wild glamping' experience and are set apart in the trees giving solitude and privacy from the outside world. This is a comfortable hassle free option, to enjoy real off-grid camping in our fully equipped pre-erected tents, with beds, cooking equipment and tableware, chairs, picnic table complete with an open fire bbq grill and a firewood allocation.
We have a permanent warden onsite to assist our campers at all times. The campsite is ideal for families and groups, to reconnect and renew friendships, or chat with fellow campers around the campfire. Full campsite bookings are also available for that special celebration.
Adjacent to the campsite is the Estate’s meadowland area of conservation, which encompasses 110 acres of the largest and most important surviving tracts of interconnected ancient meadow in the South East. The Beech Estate woodlands and meadows support birds of prey including hobby, buzzard, kestrel, sparrowhawks and barn owls. The meadows are full of orchids, ox-eye daisies, quaking grasses, bird’s foot trefoil and knapweed. As it stands 34 different species of Butterfly have been identified on Beech Estate (including clouded yellows and painted ladies) as well as a number of rare insects.
We also provide our unique eco toilets and shower in a custom made wooden gypsy style caravan. The campsite is off-grid with no electricity but we have a mains water supply.
We operate a small scale, quiet, relaxed and laid back campsite. We do not allow amplified music and have a low noise policy from 10 pm in the evenings.
