Beech Estate Woodland Campsite is Eco Camp UK’s second off-grid family campsite with fully equipped Bell Tents and ‘bring your own tent’ Forest Pitches, including the 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 to London, Hastings and the South Coast.
The Campsite is located within the 1900 acre private Beech Estate; a classified Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Campsite is nestled on the edge of a 500-acre woodland. The woodland offers limitless walks, the 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. For campers wanting to feel very secluded, try the “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, each complete with its own campfire-pit. The Bell Tents offer a unique, off-grid, holiday ‘glamping’ experience and are set apart in the trees giving solitude and privacy from the outside world. Our Bell Tents offer 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 such as Hobby, Buzzard, Kestrel, Sparrow Hawks 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 gipsy style caravan. The campsite is off-grid with no electricity. We have a mains water supply.
We operate a small scale quiet, relaxed and laid back campsite. We don’t allow amplified music and have a low noise policy from 10 pm in the evenings.
Large Pitch RestrictionsWe have lots of large pitches, but ask you to let us know your tent size on booking so we can place you in the most appropriate pitch.
Campfire DetailsEach Bell Tent and Tent Pitch has its own campfire pit. The Bell Tents also have an eco wood-burning stove and fire grill. We provide a bag of logs per night for our Bell Tent guests. Firewood can be bought on site. The Bell Tent Eco Stoves idea for cooking on and bbq equipment and campfire cookware is provided with each Bell Tent for the open fire.
Shower DetailsWe have a wood-fired water heater and a bucket shower in our shower stall. Kids learn about using a renewable resource to heat water - as we are an off-grid campsite there is no switch to flick to get hot water! (Although we do have a little gas hot water system for emergencies)
We are open from May to September on selected dates - please refer to our availability chart on our website. Camping rates are £15/adult and £7/child (aged 3-16). Prices for the Bell Tents start from £70/night for two people in a bell tent. Extra kids are £10/night. Booking is made online.
