  • This was the third year we’ve been glamping at the Beech Estate. We absolutely love it and certainly will be back. It’s such a delightful escape from the routine for us all. The kids keep telling us how they miss being there. Thank you all for making it a very welcome and special place for us.

  • Thank you! We loved our stay in the bell tent! The only problem was that we were only there for one night!! It was a little surprise getaway for my husband’s birthday and It was lovely. We will hopefully be back soon 🙂

  • Just to say we had such a great weekend and everyone in the group was blown away by how beautiful the estate is.

    Thanks very much!
  • We absolutely loved the site – best site and pitch ever! The wardens were brilliant, welcoming and obliging and we had the most fantastic weekend. Lots of walking, wildlife, camp fire cooking but I must say (and we have camped a lot) we were most blown away by the valley view pitch – it was such a lovely position. We walked in the woods one day to Netherfield and the other day to Battle (via the brewery which was nice) and saw deer, foxes, rabbits, mice, red kites and buzzards.
    The facilities were great, no issues there whatsoever.
    Many thanks for a great weekend away.
  • After three nights this week at the Beech estate I just want to come back for more; and with only a few other people on site, I felt as if I had the place to myself. Imagine that, my very own forest !?

    The variety of wildlife on the estate is quite amazing and made itself known 24 hours a day. So every opportunity was taken to brush up on flora and fauna i.d. from sound, sight and track or even just to lie back in the hammock after a fire-cooked dinner and listen to the symphony being played out all around.

    Thank you to the atmospheric Owl, serenading Robin, alarming Woodpecker, chatty Magpie, hysterical Blackbird, careful Deer, playful Wren, vocal Fox, and the meandering Buzzard.

    Oh and thank you wardens, for looking after the pitches and what little admin was required to produce a happy camper.

    Booking again soon,


  • We loved our camping weekend. And we love your campsite. It was our second visit and it was better than I remembered. It’s one of my favourites if not my favourite site in Sussex. No criticisms at all. We loved the bucket showers – the kids thought they were great fun.

  • We loved the bluebells and the perfect spot you chose for me on plot F5. My son and I remember the visiting birds such as the pheasants and song birds that we enjoyed waking up to each morning. The campfire with fire wood was great to have available and was my son’s first experience of a campfire. We had a lot of firsts in those couple of nights such as camping in a tent and open air showers, brilliant! Thank you so much for all your help and for making this the best son dad experience I’ve had and with father’s day coming up I am reminded that I have a lot to be thankful for.

  • Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at the Beech estate, it has been the best campsite we have ever visited. The pitch (F1) was perfect for our needs and our two children really enjoyed it too. The warden was wonderful and extremely informative.

  • I spent 2 nights at your camp with my teenage son, we had pitch W7 which couldn’t have been more perfect. Fab camp, great few days and loved the walk to the pub. Wasn’t sure what to expect from the bucket showers but found these simple and effective and a great way to focus the mind on how much water we use.

  • We had a great time on our second visit. The warden was a perfect host, friendly and helpful….We didn’t use the bucket showers last time, but we tried them out and they were perfectly good. The recycling is a new addition since our last visit, which was helpful.

    Everything else was great really, can’t complain. We will definitely be back again in the future to our little piece of the woods.
