Public transport to The Secret Campsite

With a bit of forward planning, it’s relatively easy to use public transport to get to and from The Secret Campsite. It may take a bit longer but it’s great for the environment and the hedgehogs prefer it. Just be prepared for some longer timetable gaps. We all cheered when a Sunday train service was […]

Glow worms at The Secret Campsite

Glow worms are rather magical. Their arrival at The Secret Campsite is always treated with excitement. Plus a raft of picture taking which is normally fruitless as they tend to be rather camera shy.

It’s very different from its raucous sibling Brighton, further up the coast. From the seafront you can access a wonderful clifftop walk to Seaford Head. This takes you up high, […]
