Wild Boar Wood Campsite is part of Pegs and Pitches Camping, two beautiful woodland campsites in Sussex. Wild Boar Wood 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 our 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 our 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.

We have a permanent warden onsite to assist our 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! We operate a small scale quiet, relaxed and laid back campsite. We don’t allow amplified music and have a low noise policy from 10pm in the evenings.

Reviews of The Secret Campsite Wild Boar Wood

Stayed here for two nights in May and had a lovely time: wandering through the site's woodland (spotted a deer and barn owl very close to the campsite), showering under the bucket shower, waving to the steam train passengers and the absolute highlight for me was having a proper campfire. plus, waking up to hear the birds singing was a real treat.

The bell tents were fabulous and there was a lovely comfortable bed.

Plus the wardens were friendly and helpful and clearly love the big outdoors.

I plan to head back soon.

Close to nature without the hassle - I really enjoyed my stay at eco camp. I loved the convenience of staying in the nice large tents, We had our baby with us and the travel cot fitted perfectly in the tent, great for families as there are loads of things to do and a little sand box for kids. The campsite's really nice, good location and lovely forest.
Cooking was easy as pretty much all you need, except food, is provided for you. Even though the weather was not the best it was a really nice stay. We would will definitely be back.

What a fantastic campsite set in a beautiful wood.
The Bell Tents are great - come with just about everything you need for your camping trip.
Our little girl had a fantastic time. Open fire cooking, great eco open air showers, the Bluebell Railway engines running past the edge of the campsite. All fantastic. The guys who run it, Paul and Hugh, are extremely helpful and very welcomming.
We'd highly recommend it to all.
