Glamping has become more and more popular over the last few years, with Google’s Digital Garage, an online business research tool, showing a 118% year on year rise in online searches for the term “glamping”. The rise of staycations the last couple of years has a huge amount to do with this but even before the pandemic, glamping was becoming the go to holiday for many individuals and families. But if you’re new to glamping, it’s hard to know what to expect! Our website is full of tips and tricks for your glamping holiday so we can help you know what to expect when glamping with us.
Where will I stay
Where and what you’ll be staying in plays a large part in your expectations when glamping. Our two Sussex campsites both have lovely glamping options. We provide our glampers with fantastic five metre bell tents to stay in. You’ll have plenty of space and your own firepit just outside, perfect for a rural glamping getaway.
What do I need to bring
No two campsites are the same, but a stay at a Pegs and Pitches Campsite means all you need to bring is your bedding and food/drink for the stay. We have everything else covered.
What is there to do
It’s hard to know what to expect when glamping in terms of keeping busy. We don’t supply any particular entertainment at our campsites. There’s no bar, swimming pool or hot tub. But there is nature, wildlife, campfires and acres of beautiful woodland! Try a spot of den building, wildlife spotting, campfire cooking, stargazing and our all time favourite – FireTV. If you need further entertainment, we are lucky enough to be in one of the countries most wonderful counties for family attractions. There’s wildlife parks, adventure parks, vineyards, kayaking, castles, gardens and more!
Can I bring my friends
We love family groups at our Sussex campsites. We have spots for you to all stay together and Wild Boar Wood even offers exclusive use for larger family groups (we have nine bell tents here).
What if I want to pitch my own tent
Though Wild Boar Wood doesn’t allow you to pitch your own tents, our sister campsite Beech Estate has plenty of space for this! We even have spots for families wanting a mixture of glamping and camping.
