Camping in wild unspoilt meadows
This beautiful campsite is made up of 3 separate meadows with woodland attached, all sprawling over 20 acres.
The land has been designated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is car-free and electronic music-free giving you every opportunity to connect with your surroundings and nature, the perfect place to recharge.
Across the site, you will find Chill-out structures, that if not booked out are free for campers to use.
The woodland has free hammocks but also has designated hammock areas for campers bringing their own to sleep in and set up more wild camping.
Open on weekends from May to mid-July and then 7 days a week through July and August. From £15 a day stay so whatever your budget whatever your style be it self-pitching, camper van, tree tents, or bell tents we can cater for you.
£15 per night for adults – £10 per night for kids – 3yrs and under go free
Our Meadow fields and woods have a bountiful supply of secret spaces for families, groups and individuals looking for a place to enjoy natural and off-grid camping. Walk through trackways to pitches cut through the meadow grass from just £15 per person per night in an unforgettable location. Each pitch comes with washing up bucket and recycling bags and don’t forget to take advantage of our ‘Bell-Hop’ service to take all the hard work out of moving your belongings.
Bell Tents ready for your arrival
Empty bell tent £50 per night ready for you to pop your own gear in. Kitted bell tents from £75 per night.
Our bell tents are set fresh each week, allowing friends to pitch together. Once you have selected the dates on the booking system, simply select your self-pitching people and then add your bell tent in the extras section. More info about booking a bell tent
Hammock kits, that include DD hammock, thermal under blanket and DD over camp tarp for £50 per night.
Our private hammock ground is situated away from the main camping ground, giving a slightly more wild edge to the experience. You can bring your own and just pay the £15 per person per night fee, or hire the Hammock kits.

With 20 acres of land there are plenty of places to find peace and quite. Request our Babble pitch that can house 3-6 tent pitches or camper vans and is situated right next to our stream and dipping pool. Or long summer evening pitches with views, shady places for shelter from the summer sun.
Sounds great, but what about the toilets?
We designed our infrastructure to fit around you and your needs, with a mixture of composting and traditional toilets you will never be very far away from a convenience.
Tell me more about your ethos and camp facilities!
We run off-grid so that you can enjoy a genuine back-to-nature experience; real down to earth camping doesn’t have to be hard work and we have provided you with everything you need for your comfort.
Unlike other campsites, we have designed our facilities to be mobile and versatile to meet the changing needs and spaces on our site.
We pride ourselves in using up-cycled materials wherever possible – look out for our eco-toilets in vintage horse box trailers!
We have both compost and traditional toilets across the site and wonderful piping hot showers. For your ease we have washing-up stations dotted all over the site next to drinking water points and if you are looking at hiring shelters for communal spaces we can offer these too so just get in touch. We care for our stream habitat so we provide paraben free washing up liquid and shower soap for our campers to use.
Fires And Wood
Camping isn’t camping without setting fire to something, however, they do need to be treated with respect and common sense. We have fire pits available for every pitch to prevent the tree roots being damaged, and handy buckets to help you extinguish them in the evening.
We have permission for campers to forage for small fallen timber to act as kindling, but nothing bigger campers as the forestry team turn coppice wood into money for the winter. Our neighbouring estate has produced our bags of wood so please ask the warden and they will be happy to sell you some!
Our campsites are very popular for hosting school groups, family pods, and friends for yearly get together all looking for private space to be together, enjoy nature, play games, cook food over an open fire, party the night away with silent discos and relax in safe open space where kids can explore and adults can kick back.
In our unique spaces we can create self-pitch and bell tent areas together and offer huts and cabins for a more getaway from it all stay. Bolt-on large communal structures, fully kitted kitchen trailer, mains power, private toilets, and showers.

Explore local rivers and the hidden beaches
We have some amazing rivers close to the campsite, the river Rother is 20 minute drive, with easy parking and access on to the river. The campsite has Paddleboards for hire starting from £25, drop off and pick up service, maps on the best spots to stop or best pubs to refuel. Contact us for further details. Paddle board hire is in the extras section of booking.
Bell Hop transport service to your pitch
We are also operating a Bell hop service on weekends (Friday and Sunday only) that will ferry all kit across the site for £10 a load from the car park in field 1.
This is an add-on service is found in the extras section of your booking page.
What is the Bell Hop Service?
What is it?
The Bell Hop operates with Quad bikes and 4×4 vehicles picking up campers equipment from the car park and dropping it directly onto their pitch.
Why offer this service?
This year we have taken the decision to no longer allow cars onto the main camping fields or woodland (except camper vans), we have invested in trailers, quads and 4×4’s, and subsidised the service so for a small fee we transport your camping gear directly to your pitch.
Why can’t I drive to my pitch?
The land started to struggle with the amount of cars driving across the field, as did the wildlife, and it was became increasingly difficult to get campers driving safely in wet conditions or being mindful of others so we decide to change things.
How do I book this service
You can book the service through the booking system in EXTRAS but we will only be taking cash on arrival for the service.
What if I don’t want this service
No problem! If you would rather transport your kit across the site, we have provided BIG wheel barrows that are in the car park, all we ask is that you return them after you have finished using them.
why do i have to pay?
This is an extra service, we provide wheel barrows for free, but we also understand the average family comes with a lot of gear. It costs a considerable amount of money to buy and maintain quad bikes/4×4 with trailers, then add insurance, training and staff hourly rate for arrival and check out, so we hope you’ll see why we have set the fee at £10.
Welcoming you to the site
We warden the campsites on weekends at check-in, show you to your pitch and assist with anything you need during your stay. Wardens are not always available during the week and we check in remotely so do look out for your allocation email on the week of your stay to help orientate you to your pitch.
Wood Fired Pizza on a friday night
Why not book in for our Friday night pizzas. This year we are sending out menus and time slots 5 days before your arrival. To avoid disappointment please book in for the pizzas when booking your pitching as we do not carry enough for every camper on-site. We will not charge you for anything until arrival.
It is the pain of every campsite and camper to deal with rubbish.
Being a Pop-up short stay camping ground moving about, we have always had problems sourcing rubbish accounts as they offer 12 month contracts.
Luckily this year we have found a company who will take all of our recycling on an as-and-when basis. So recycling will operate like this…
We give netty bags on each number pitch, one bag is for glass that must be empty and separated. The second bag is for all empty plastic and cans. Then on the Sunday we open the bins situated by reception and on your way out you deposit your recycled waste. Hoorah!
We welcome dogs, please keep them controlled for neighbours, livestock, wildlife and other campers.
