East Sussex campsite

“My son and I have just got back from a stay at Wild Boar and wanted to say what a treasure and a delight it is. The site is beautiful and wardens Pete and Amy couldn’t have been nicer and more patient and helpful so a big thank you to them. We had a fantastic time and can’t wait to go back!” Robert and son  (May 2015)

“We have just had an amazing weekend at Wild Boar! I wanted to let you know that Amy and Pete were more than just wardens- they were true hosts. So engaged with everyone and even came out to wave to us all as we went past in the train – both ways!!! The children had a wonderful time. They are quite young but were able to play freely and wander the woods on their own. My son is SO dirty – already had 2 baths and not got rid of the grime. I think some of his clothes will never recover either – sign of a very good time and a happy child!!!! We are coming back next year!” Josine, family and friends (July 2015)

“This campsite is an absolute gem. It caters for both families and larger groups as well as those wanting a little more of their own space. Every small detail has been considered, from wheel barrow collection from the car park to carry your kit to the site, logs and fire pits ready for cooking or relaxing around an open fire to daily freezer packs for your cool box. The wardens make the experience extra special, such a lovely welcoming couple who really do go above and beyond to ensure you have the best time. Can’t recommend this wonderful campsite enough.” Katie (July 2015)

“Hi. We have just had a wonderful weekend at Wild Boar wood. A huge thank you to Pete and Amy for looking after us all so well, being so amazing with our children and waving at us so enthusiastically as we left on the Bluebell railway. We will hopefully be back next year!” Hazel family and friends. (July 2015)

“This weekends camping in Wild Boar wood was an amazing experience, the boys loved playing with the other children and seeing  the Bluebell trains coming through. Pete and Amy were tremendous and couldn’t have asked for better hosts! Now we want a season pass pleeeasse!” Andrew and Family (May 2015)

“Hi!  We have just spent a fantastic weekend at Wild Boar Wood, with our group of Italian students.  I have been camping for over 30 years and never have I found such a wonderful campsite, so cleverly and sympathetically (to the environment) laid out.  However, the real jewel in the crown, were the two wardens, Pete and Amy.  To be honest, they were not really wardens (in the sense that I have experienced previously on other sites) rather they were an excellent host and hostess, for whom nothing was too much trouble. They are a huge asset to you and as a result, I will be returning to Wild Boar Wood, later this season with just my family.  Next year, I hope to bring more groups and larger ones to stay as well.  Please pass on my sincere thanks to Amy and Pete.  Kind regards”  Alex, Director, The Blue Penguin Company Ltd. (June 2015)

“Hi Hugh – We had an amazing time – we were sooooooo lucky with weather!!!! Even my hardened non- camping friends loved it!!!!! Even talk as making it an annual thing!!! The wardens were fab. Thanks so much!” Becky, Family and Friends (40th Birthday – June 2015)

“Thank you so much for all your infectious enthusiasm, kindness and hard work over the weekend.  You both (Pete & Amy the Wardens) made the camp a very special place to be. Having a lit central fire when it was raining was very thoughtful, plus it was very nice for the community get together.”  Best wishes Adrienne, Russell and Ethan (May 2015)

“Hi Hugh, Just back from our wonderful weekend away at Wild Boar Wood. Wanted to write to thank you & your team for such a brilliant time. Amy & Pete were incredible hosts & made what was a very wet weekend a very fun one. Can’t thank them enough! Have written a review & posted online along with a picture so will forward that to you now as an FYI. Thanks again for everything” Jen (July 2015)

“Just got back from the most awesome stay at Beech Estate campsite! Theresa and Laurence are such welcoming and inspiring people, it definitely gave the whole campsite a very mellow feel.  The grounds were stunning and the facilities comfortable and clean.  Maddy told us all the way home how she’s going to have a place just like that when she’s big and when I asked her if she loved it there, she said ‘I don’t just love it, I want to live there!’ So thanks so much from all of us, next time we’ll stay longer and bring everyone we know.” The B Family x (May 2015)

”Half of me wants to keep this place a secret, the other half wants to tell the world just how great it is! Superbly private pitches nestled in the woodland makes you feel like you’re completely alone yet only a short stroll from toilets and showers which you can choose whether to go compost and bucket shower or conventional. The surrounded area is beautiful with lots of forest to explore and only a short drive to the historic town of Battle. I love the fact there’s no light pollution and the site is kept as natural as possible. The staff Loz and Theresa are lovelier than I can do justice in words. For me the biggest winner is the fact we can have a campfire and were even provided with a grill to cook on. I can’t wait to return and am booking my next stay today!” Max and Friends (April 2015)

“Hi there – we just had a fantastic long weekend at the Beech Estate Campsite – thank you!” Pete, Rachel and Family (May 2015)

“Hi,Thanks for a great stay. The site was perfect for our group. Thanks and enjoy the rest of the camping season.” Genevieve (May 2015)

“We had a fantastic time and were blessed with amazing weather. Will definitely be booking again! Best.” Jayne and Family (June 2015)

“Hi Hugh, We had a great time and L&T were great over the weekend and you were also a huge help to me pulling it all together! It was a beautiful spot and the bell tent was fab!!! Definitely my style of camping! I’ll sit down one evening this week and rate you on al the sites.. 5* all the way! Have a good summer and see you again at some stage! Cheers” Dani and Family (June 2015) 

“Dear Hugh, Just a quick email to say thank you so much for such a lovely weekend at the Beech Estate campsite.  We really enjoyed it and our little boy Luke took to it so well we are looking to go again as soon as possible. ” Francie and family (July 2015)

“Hi Hugh, Just wanted to say a big thanks for allowing us to stay at your awesome site! We had a fantastic time, what a stunning place, and we even got to see some common lizards in the woods (we are herpetological geeks so were hoping to see snakes basking somewhere, but this was better) will definitely be coming back for another visit! Could you also pass my thanks on to your warden Teresa(? I think) , even with the torrential rain, she still took the time to walk me around the site, and suggested some nice areas we could set up our hammocks.Best wishes” Matt
