Meet our campsite warden: Steffi

A true off gridder herself, Steffi completed her first season as warden at Wild Boar Wood Campsite in 2020. We were so happy when she decided to return for the 2021 season!

Having travelled widely, worked in customer service and lived off grid in a bell tent over winter(!), Steffi blended immediately into the off-grid lifestyle at Wild Boar Wood. Steffi’s love for the natural world and her welcoming nature make her the perfect warden for our woodland campsite. Here she is pictured below with part-time warden Nikita. Nikita is a wonderfully cheerful worker who has helped out for three seasons now at Wild Boar Wood and we hope she continues to return when she’s not busy studying or travelling.

In the office: Katie and Hugh

Hugh, is the man behind Wild Boar Wood and Beech Estate 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.
