Earth Camp: Bell tents (photo added by manager on 17/11/2022)

General

  • Eco-friendly, family-run East Sussex site on the edge of a woodland
  • Massages and reiki available on site, with yoga classes every Saturday
  • Compost toilets and hot showers; firepits and outdoor games provided

Serenely sustainable and with plenty of room to roam, family-run Earth Camp has good basic facilities and direct access to gorgeous woodland. A mile outside of the peaceful village of Chailey in the rural East Sussex hinterland, this well-placed spot is also half an hour's drive from Brighton and the coast.

The site's environmentally friendly focus is another big plus: the well-maintained composting toilets, washing-up basins and shower blocks are, for example, almost entirely made out of recycled wood.

And there's also the fact that your pitch is within easy strolling distance of a wildlife-packed woodland, which looks particularly gorgeous in spring when the forest floor bursts into bluebell-coloured bloom. Any kids you've brought along can stay safely within the confines of the site and get up to games among the trees, while those hoping for farther-ranging adventures should bring walking boots or bikes and set off along the range of paths that are directly accessible from base. Chailey Common Nature Reserve, a popular spot for such jaunts, is just a couple of fields away, and it's a 20-minute walk along footpaths to Newick, which has three pubs, a bakery, a butcher's and a convenience store.

Games to borrow include a badminton set, football goals, a table tennis table, croquet, cricket, boules and Kubb. On-site massages and reiki are available, as well as yoga and sound baths every Saturday.

For a lovely outdoor evening, this site allows campfires and barbecues, with wood and kindling available to buy if you need a bit of help getting your blaze burning. Finally, feel free to bring well-behaved dogs along – they'll find a very warm welcome here.

    had a great stay at Earth Camp a very well run site by Will & Rachel. The ground is quite slopey and uneven in places, I was in a camper van but will offers the loan if chocks to even you up if needed. The compost loos, showers and washing up areas are kept very clean. It’s a very peaceful site and offers massage therapies and yoga sessions which was a definite bonus. It’s a great site for kids with a lovely area in the woods with a fairy grotto and rope swing. There are also some lovely woodland walks straight from the site. Will & Rachel were wonderful hosts very welcoming and helpful.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Looking for a spot to get up to some kayaking or wild swimming? Park up at Barcombe Mills (10 minutes' drive) to explore the river Ouse and reservoir. Perhaps you'll find yourself paddling upriver in the direction of a waterside pub like The Anchor Inn (10 minutes), where you can also hire a boat if you haven't brought your own.

If sticking to dry land is preferable to messing around in boats, check out the mid-century steam trains that serve the four stations on the Bluebell Railway (10 minutes). Alternatively, head into Brighton (30 minutes) and sail down the esplanade on Volk’s Electric Railway.

Lewes (15 minutes) should also make your to-do list: its 11th-century Norman Castle, priory ruins and connections to Anne of Cleves should sort the historical component of your visit, while catching a show at Glyndebourne Opera (10 minutes outside of town or 20 minutes from base) should please to those curious about culture. And the kids? They'll be sorted at Drusillas Park (30 minutes).

Must see

  • Sheffield Park Garden (2.5 miles)

  • Wakehurst Place (8.2 miles)
