In pursuit of nothing much

escape to East Sussex

The Secret Campsite is a peaceful, tents-only campsite for nature lovers, real campers and their families, who are looking to explore Sussex, Brighton or Lewes. Our woodland meadow camping pitches are large and secluded and come with their own camp fire pit and free hot showers. We also have a number of unusual shelters where you can spend the night.

We keep the campsite free from cars and dogs, but happily embrace the need for great toilets and shower facilities.

Catch glimpses of deer, hunt for slow worms, wake to the dawn chorus, build dens or simply relax around the campfire at the end of a busy day. Camp with us as you relax and explore Sussex, and you’ll leave wanting more.

  • A beautiful site with lots of space, rich and interesting wildlife and peaceful tranquillity. They also have two amazing ‘secret shelters’ if you don’t fancy packing your tent! The Tree Tent – a round tree house suspended from the canopy and the Gridshell – which is perfect for a family getaway.

  • Really good small family run campsite. Great for kids with no cars allowed on the site. Always felt my kids were safe to play. Nice large pitches. Open fires allowed and great access to places like Lewes, Brighton or woodland walks closer to the site. Highly recommended.

  • We had a brilliant time and will definitely be back at some point!  We love the wildness of the site and the fact there are so few pitches so everyone has plenty of space.  All the staff were lovely: helpful, friendly and interesting to talk to.

  • We once again LOVED our stay at the secret campsite. Perfect for children and so peaceful and beautifully laid out. It was our second stay and we’ll be back again!
