Beech Estate bookings open for 2023 season

Enjoy Sussex camping with fires again from April 1st

The camping season is only just coming to an end but we’re already getting excited about the start of the 2023 camping season. We’ve already seen an influx of keen campers booking their Sussex camping trip with us in the forest. Our Beech Estate Campsite re-opens for the camping season on April 1st. There’s a lot to look forward to with a spring-time stay. Whether you want to pitch your own tent among the trees or stay in one of our “wild glamping” bell tents…

The 600-acre woodland bursts to life with a carpet of beautiful bluebells in April or May. But it’s not just the bluebells that seem to come out of hibernation. All sorts of woodland wildlife and birdlife spring into action at this time of year (pardon the pun) making it a perfect place for nature lovers.

Campsite Improvements

In 2022 we made a number of improvements to the campsite, including a brand new facilities block – next to our famous bucket showers. We created a covered area, with washing-up sinks, hot water points and hand basins. Three new flushing toilet cubicles and a urinal for the guys next door. So far the feedback on these improvements has been great!

We also built bases for each of our bell tents, to help keep the tents dry and ventilated, as well as giving our ‘wild glampers’ an even better view of the woodland! Each bell tent also received a brand new annex, which has meant space to keep things covered and dry in the event of rain.

Our lovely wardens have also been updating the signage around the campsite and of course the all important pub walks! Have a chat with them on site for advice on which local pub to take a walk to from the campsite.

Great wardens

We’ll be welcoming back Ben as Campsites Manager for the 2023 season and will be confirming further wardens to help him out this season soon. Check out the job description if you’re interested! Our wardens love living the off grid lifestyle and are always happy to give you tips and tricks on your camping trips to make your stay even more enjoyable. Ask them about the beautiful woodland and all the wildlife that lives there, they know the area well, so utilise their expertise!

If the last couple of years are anything to go by we can look forward to some unseasonably warm weather. But in case it’s not warm our Sussex camping site allows campfires to make sure you stay toasty! The woodland looks different throughout the year, but the spring season is a special time with all the new growth and vibrancy.
