  • I stayed once this year and loved it so much I recommended it to my two twin brothers who stayed in October to see out the season. It’s been such a tough year on everyone, and Beech Estate has given my whole family a new lease of life during some difficult times. Thank you for providing such a fantastic space.

  • We just wanted to express how much we loved our stay at Beech Estate Campsite.
    Everything about it was perfect; the giant clearing where we had bbqs and gazed at the stars, then disappeared into our tent to play chess when the weather got a bit too wild, the toasty fire pit where we hung a hammock and tarp and stayed cosy drinking from our growler from Battle Brewery, the deserted surrounding woodland where we went on long walks which made us feel like it was just us in the world, the local pubs (Castle Inn Fish and Chips and The Squirrel Inn pies, oh my), Bodiam Castle and it’s carp, and even the toilets and showers were delightful, which I wasn’t necessarily expecting!

    You guys couldn’t have been more helpful, from the warm welcome when we booked in, to lending us a sponge because we are idiots. We will definitely be booking again (possibly in summer!), and you were so right about our pitch being one of the best.

  • My son and I had a great time on our recent stay. It was our first time staying on your site and it certainly lived up to its good rep. I personally aim for sustainable living and also apply that as a philosophy in my work as a builder, so your campsite ticked all the boxes. We stayed on F4 and were lucky to have the area to ourselves for the 2 nights.
    My only ‘problem’ was that we were relaxing too much to remember to take pictures! Next time though.
    Ps Those are the most well made composting toilets I have used! Oh and the bucket showers, very decent too.
    We will hopefully return next year.

  • Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful weekend at the faraway pitch on Beech Estate. It’s such a magical place to catch up with friends and see our kids play in the beautiful forest. It truly is a happy place for us. All the COVID measures (and the fresh air) made it feel completely safe and allowed us to enjoy a weekend of normalcy.
    We can’t wait to be back there next year.

  • I’ve done camping in a big open field with lots of other tents close by, but this was so different. Not only did we love exploring the estate and the wider area, but we also got to see some shooting stars! – as we laid outside the tent in our own personal clearing. We also loved the locally grown vegetables that were for sale and of course the bucket showers – among the trees!
    I was hoping to get my partner into camping and now, this is likely to be a regular spot for us. Can’t wait to come back soon – this is what camping is supposed to be like. 🙂

  • Thank you again for having such a great campsite. It was our second time there and we are back in 3 weeks again for another short stay.
    Despite the rain, we had a great time, and the added water jet and sanitisers are really great! Everything was really clean and our stay was wonderful.

  • We had a great time, thank you so much. I love your campsite, we love the wildness and the space. The wardens were super helpful too. Let us know when we can book for next year?!!!

  • Thanks for an amazing stay. It was our 3 month old daughter Mara’s first camping trip and she absolutely loved it, come rain or shine!

    Greg and family
  • We loved your campsite. The quiet and simplicity and the eco amenities. It was the perfect break for us after months of shielding.

    Cassie, Sean and Jamie
  • It really is a fantastic campsite that is well looked after, myself and my wife will be coming back to you for years!
