Wild Boar Wood Campsite offers unique, off-grid "wild glamping" in fully-equipped, pre-erected bell tents. Campers can expect all the benefits of wild, woodland camping with open fires, birdsong, butterflies and den building but enjoy the comfort of a bell tent at the end of the day (if you prefer to pitch your own tent please look at Beech Estate Campsite).

The site's nine bell tents are set within a five-acre bluebell wood in the heart of Sussex and part of the High Weald, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Tents are set in among the trees giving solitude and privacy from the outside world although its location in West Sussex, near Haywards Heath and the Ashdown Forest, means it is within easy reach of London and Brighton. Wild Boar Wood Campsite offers an opportunity to camp side by side with nature, whilst enjoying the comfort of the tents, with beds, cooking equipment, open fire bbq grill and a firewood allocation. The two ‘faraway' tents offer a more secluded option, tucked away from the main campsite, for couples and families wanting their own space.

There is a permanent warden onsite to assist campers at all times. The campsite is ideal for families and groups, to reconnect and renew friendships, or chat with fellow campers around the campfire. Full campsite bookings are also available for that special celebration.

Wild Boar Wood and its surrounding 40-acre field teems with wildlife; birds, butterflies, deer, rabbit, hedgehogs and foxes make their homes in the field, hedgerows and woodland. Close by the woodland campsite, the River Ouse meanders through the countryside, offering delightful and scenic walks along its banks to the welcoming local pubs.

The peace and tranquility of the site and surrounding area are interrupted only by the historic and spectacular Bluebell Railway locomotives as they occasionally steam past the edge of the woodland campsite! This is a small scale quiet, relaxed and laid back campsite. Amplified music is not allowed and there is a low noise policy from 10pm in the evenings.

Single nights possible but 2 night minimum stay if including a Saturday.
