Sussex Group glamping and camping options

Wild Boar Wood and Beech Estate Campsites (formerly know as Eco Camp) both offer some great Sussex group glamping and camping options. Whether you want to camp with a couple of friends in neighbouring bell tents or fancy hiring out a whole meadow for extended family to pitch their tents in, we’ll have something to tempt you.

Our off-grid woodland campsites are designed to help you relax in natural surroundings. Wild Boar Wood Campsite and Beech Estate Woodland Campsite are perfect if you want to catch up with friends and family around the campfire. Our campsites are quiet, family-friendly sites and amplified music is not allowed at any time – great for a relaxed gathering but if you’re looking for an all-night party then it’s not the right place.

Sussex Group glamping at Wild Boar Wood

Sussex group glamping and camping

Wild Boar Wood campsite is our glamping-only site near Haywards Heath in West Sussex. There are just nine bell tents in the a small five-acre bluebell woodland. The campsite is located in a beautiful part of the High Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The campsite is perfect for small groups of two, three or four families to glamp together.  We have designed the campsite layout and placed some of the bell tents to allow for smaller groups to be able to share a fire and be located alongside each other. For families this ensures that if the parents stay up later chatting around the campfire, they can hear their children if they should wake up.

Full exclusive campsite bookings are available too. This means that families or groups can book all nine bell tents for exclusive use of the woodland, the tents and the facilities. Groups can gather together in the one of the two central areas where there is a larger fire pit area.

Each bell tent has its own fire-pit. However we have two central campfires, which are located under a parachute awning. So perfect for group campfires. In wet weather this allows for a group glamping together to shelter from the elements and still cook on an open fire.

For more information about group glamping and exclusive hire at Wild Boar Wood, see our Group Accommodation page here. For enquiries and bookings please contact the office by emailing or by calling the office on 01273 980218 [9.30am-5pm Monday to Friday] 

Just as side note we don’t accept Hen or Stag events. We are at heart a chilled, relaxed campsite for groups looking to glamp together in a peaceful way within a beautiful woodland.

Sussex group glamping and camping at Beech Estate

At Beech Estate we are able to offer group glamping and group camping in a slightly different way. At this East Sussex campsite, located near Battle, we also have forest tent pitches for people with their own tents. We also have eight pre-erected bell tents, kitted out in the same manner at Wild boar Wood, for people who want a taste of off-grid woodland camping made easy. One our most popular options is for small groups to offer groups to combine glamping and camping. Perfect if a few families or friends do not have all the required camping equipment.

For Sussex group glamping and camping options at Beech Estate site in East Sussex we offer the following options:

Large Group Camping Option – Woodland Meadow (10-15 families)

The Woodland Meadow is ideal for a larger group of families wishing to pitch their own tents together. This area is generally reserved exclusively for a group of 10-15 families but on occasions we do split the area to include two groups. The meadow is a unique tree-lined area, relatively close to the car park. It is within a short distance of the flushing toilet facilities (including indoor and outdoor showers). The meadow also has it’s own compost toilet and drinking water point. This area provides a group with a pitch well away from other campers in your own section of the campsite.
Faraway Pitch Group Option – F4 (6-8 families)

The Faraway Group Pitch (F4) is a large clearing situated on the ridge of the valley. It’s bordered on one side by the woodland and overlooking Beech Creek. It is an area large enough for up to eight tents, with the ability to include a big double pitch next door. The Faraway Pitches, although a further walk from the car park (approx. 300m), are among the most spectacularly scenic of the camping spots at Beech Estate. There is a compost toilet, washing-up area and two bucket showers (all supplied with hot/drinking water) nearby. The flushing toilet facilities are approximately 150-200m away. This area provides a group with a pitch well away from other campers in your own section of the campsite.
East Sussex Group Glamping and Camping Combination

There is the option at Beech Estate of combining your own pitched tents with our ready-pitched glamping bell tents. We have several different options for combining tents in this way in different areas of the campsite. There are a maximum of 4 bell tents within a close range of each other that can be combined with 3-4 other pitches. Please contact the booking office to arrange the most suitable option.
Small Group Options (2-5 families)

Group Camping

A smaller group has the option of utilising a combination of pitches within the main camping area. We have a number of large spaces with room for five tents (depending on size). The flushing toilet facilities are approximately 100m away. But all other facilities, including bucket showers, washing-up area and compost toilets, are close by.
