Our team – camp wardens and crew

The team that makes it run smoothly, so you can escape to nature…

Our camp wardens: Leanne and Joe

Leanne and Joe, pictured below, moved to Beech Estate Campsite in 2020 after working at and managing various sites abroad. With a real interest in off grid living and sustainability, they make a great fit! After a strange first season they’ve worked hard to make the campsite look and feel its best and have gone above and beyond to make it a safe environment. We’ve had nothing but glowing reviews from our campers since they joined us.

In the office: Katie and Hugh

Hugh, is the man behind Beech Estate and Wild Boar Wood Campsites (formerly Eco Camp UK). An Aussie by birth and a Brightonian by choice, Hugh started Eco Camp UK back in 2010. His idea was to provide the essence of wild camping in a way that was environmentally friendly, easy and enjoyable for families. Hugh is married with three children.

Katie is the Office Manager and will likely be the person you’ll talk to on the phone or by email if you have any questions. Katie has a love of the outdoors and is a keen camper (and glamper) in her spare time.
