Secret Garden Glamping is an adults-only site consisting of one luxurious bell tent set in the heart of Ashdown Forest. The tent itself is within the stunning grounds of Tile Lodge, a country house.
With dozens of tea lights among the surrounding trees, the Secret Garden is the perfect romantic setting on a warm summer's day. If you're keen on a bit of wildlife spotting there's a horse paddock on your doorstep.
The bell tent is enclosed in a small hollow surrounded by rhododendrons, with an opening onto the horse paddock. Through this opening there are panoramic views of Ashdown Forest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There isn't a house in sight!
The bell tent has a comfy double bed and there is a small outhouse where you can cook, have dinner and relax. There is also an outside seating area under the canopy of the rhododendrons, with a firepit/barbecue and awnings.
If it's sunny, you can enjoy a swim in our outdoor pool.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the B2026, once you are on Kidds Hill, we're at the top of it! We are opposite Gills Lap car park. Once you're at the top of the hill, look out for the car park and our drive is right opposite it. There is a white signpost with 'Tile Lodge' listed at the top.
Just down the road is the fourteenth century pub, The Hatch. It is the definition of 'quaint country pub' with low ceilings, a friendly crowd and great food - a must-visit spot in East Sussex.
Secret Garden Glamping is in the heart of Ashdown Forest so there are endless walks to be taken and sights to see. Ashdown Forest is the home of Winnie the Pooh so you can even go and check out Roo's sandy place or Pooh Bridge.
