Real camping. So what is it?

For us at The Secret Campsite, real camping starts and finishes with nature, peace and space. Inky skies It’s the inky sky at night. The chance to see the stars and learn the constellations. It’s the dropping off to sleep hearing the night time wildlife sounds. The hoot of an owl, the amorous croaks of […]

Rockpooling at Seaford Beach

Seaford Beach is about 25 minutes drive from The Secret Campsite. A quiet spot. Seaford’s charms are its simplicity, peace and space. Plus free parking. 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, […]

Secret Wildlife Festival 2020 Cancelled

We are so gutted to have to cancel the 2020 Festival. Unfortunately for obvious reasons it can’t take place. But we will definitely run it in 2021. In the interim, we have been welcoming new wildlife here to the campsite. Clearing out an old poly tunnel to make way for a new wildlife area, we […]

Bookings at The Secret Campsite during the Covid outbreak

Over the course of the outbreak we ask all of our current and future customers to accommodate a few changes to our normal rules: We will happily reschedule any booking that can’t be enjoyed to a mutually convenient date. This could be due to our forced closure, or because you, or a member of your […]

Up with the Skylarks, Swallows and Scarlet Pimpernel

Friday morning saw us leave The Secret Campsite at 4:45 AM to walk on The South Downs Way. Walking along the roads to join the South Downs Way at Offham, we saw the early morning sun rise and the world start to awake. We joined the South Downs Way passing the old racecourse near Lewes, […]

Beavers come to Sussex

Beavers are a keystone species. So named as they are a species without which, whole eco-systems collapse. Sadly they were hunted to extinction in the seventeenth century. Beavers were once prized for their fur and their castoreum. This was used to make perfume and medicine.  However very excitingly, beavers have recently been reintroduced in 2 […]

Donate to The Sussex Wildlife Trust

The Secret Campsite is really pleased to be able to offer all our campers the opportunity to make a donation to The Sussex Wildlife Trust when they book online. It is entirely optional, but this £3 donation at point of checkout, will help support the valuable work of The Sussex Wildlife Trust. The Trust acts […]

Switch on your senses

Experiencing nature is essential for our well being and never, ever gets boring! Our quiet campsite, which is so very quiet now we are in Lockdown, provides a great opportunity for slowing down, switching off and ‘doing nothing’ as we say. When we choose to ‘do nothing’ we give ourselves the time to pay close […]

Birdsong and bluebells

We are always lucky with the bird song here. This year with no aeroplanes flying overhead and with empty roads, we are treated to the full vocal thrust of the birds. Last week we woke and crept down over to the camping meadow at 5 am. The moon was still full and creamy and within […]
