Looking for a campsite close to Lewes?
If you are looking for a campsite close to Lewes, consider Wild Boar Wood Campsite. The campsite is ten miles, as the crow flies, from the historic town of Lewes. Only around about a twenty minute drive. The campsite is located in the heart of Sussex, on the border of East and West Sussex. Our second campsite at Beech Estate is a little further from Lewes. But it’s still a great place to be based if you want to explore this fascinating historic town. It is about twenty-three miles or forty-odd minutes away from Lewes. The drive from this campsite close to Lewes into town takes you through the beautiful Sussex countryside.
Both sites offer woodland glamping with open camp fires – where you stay in one of our pre-erected bell tents. At Beech Estate we also have forest pitches where you can pitch your own tents. Both campsites are close to London and the South Coast, with Brighton within easy reach.
Lewes is a lovely old market town, the county town of East Sussex, England and historically of all of Sussex. It’s a great location to visit, with lots of quirky antique shops, coffee shops, bars, restaurants and most importantly the Harvey’s Brewery. Harvey’s is Sussex’s oldest independent brewery and the maker of some fine ales (just ask any Pegs and Pitches warden!). For more information on the town of Lewes check out our guide to the town.
Camping near the Lewes countryside offers lots of walks, the River Ouse flows through Lewes and meanders to within a mile of our Wild Boar Wood Campsite. Either of our two great Sussex campsites are perfect places to explore Lewes or the South of England from.
