Pegs and Pitches runs two small-scale private campsites in Sussex. Our first site was Wild Boar Wood, near Horsted Keynes in West Sussex, which has been in operation since 2011. Our second site at Beech Estate, close to Battle, opened for the first time in 2012.
Wild Boar Wood Campsite
Bell tents at our West Sussex campsite, Wild Boar Wood
The first of our campsites in Sussex, at Wild Boar Wood, is surrounded by a beautiful five-acre wood, with the Bluebell Railway line running right past our edge. The woodland campsite is the perfect place to get away, unwind and enjoy camping with friends.
The campsite is available to rent for groups on selected dates through the season (April – October). We provide almost everything you’ll need – you just bring your sleeping bag or duvet and sheets, food and drink.
Wild Boar Wood has nine bell tents in the woods, which can sleep up to four adults or two adults and two kids on comfortable beds. Each bell tent pitch has its own fire pit so you can enjoy cooking and relaxing around the campfire. We also have a larger communal fire pit which you are welcome to use. This fire pit area is covered by a parachute suspended from the trees so doubles up as a wet weather area. It’s a great place to socialise with other campers, toast marshmallows and share stories.
Nearby activities include the famous Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park Garden, The Ashdown Forest, horse-riding, golf and a host of beautiful walks and charming country pubs. Kids love the woodland, which is fenced, around the perimeter so it’s a great space to give them freedom and a sense of adventure.
Beech Estate Campsite
Over at Beech Estate Woodland, near Battle, is our second of the campsites in Sussex. We have a mixture of bell tent pitches, offering the same “wild glamping” experience as at Wild Boar Wood. But we also have forest pitches where campers can pitch their own tents. The site is located within a much larger 600-acre woodland, part of the privately-owned Beech Estate. There are many opportunities for woodland exploration and walks through the private woodland. With lots of wildlife watching and opportunities for mountain bike riding. Three country pubs are within walking distance of the campsite, almost exclusively along tracks through the private estate.
You can also head out to visit the nearby town of Battle, which is just a couple of miles down the road. Visit its historic 1066-associated sites, as well as Hastings and the beaches of the south coast.
Pegs and Pitches campsites in Sussex offer camping and “wild glamping” with a focus on protecting the natural environment within which we operate.
