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.

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 […]

Planting trees and shrubs around the campsite

We set The Secret Campsite up as a place where campers could relax and connect with the natural world around a campfire down in sunny Sussex. To ensure that we deliver this we spend lots of time enhancing parts of the campsite so that more of our native flora and fauna move in. This year […]

We advise that everyone uses the conveniently located hand sanitisers before AND after touching any equipment or furniture around the campsite.  Please can you explain this to your children and […]

Covid-19 virus

Currently the Secret Campsite remains open for camping trips, as well as for stays in our Tree Tent and The Gridshell. But, this may change, and we are ready if and when it does. Our team is very much alive to the current situation and its fast moving nature. So this post is to reassure […]
