Camping pitches at The Secret Campsite Lewes

Our normal cancellation policy is that once a booking has been made we will provide a 50% refund if we receive a cancellation 30+ days from the arrival date of the booking. This policy remains in place.


…. until further notice we will happily reschedule any booking to a mutually agreed date in 2020 or, if the current situation continues into the middle of summer 2020, we will very happily extend this to a mutually agreed date before mid summer in 2021.

If you need to cancel or reschedule, please let us know as soon as possible by email to avoid any confusion.

If we are asked to close

If we are told that we have to close the campsite, we will do so immediately.

The wildlife we share the campsite with won’t mind in the slightest. Not that the local dormouse can post any glowing reviews for us.

If this happens, we will happily reschedule all of the bookings to a mutually agreeable date, in the near future.

What we do and what we provide

The Secret Campsite is a small and very passionate little business that has been running since 2012 and we have lots of plans for our future. They all include encouraging more people to connect with our natural world as they relax and chat around a campfire. We have ideas we are keen to develop and lots of work to do for the local wildlife. Not to mention the efforts we make with our fantastic partners such as Sussex Wildlife Trust.

We remain optimistic that our little 10 acre site near Lewes is a perfect location to escape from the turmoil and stress that is being inflicted by the Corona virus.  This year we are looking forward to seeing all of our regular and new customers at some point over the summer.

In the meantime, it might be invigorating to take a step back and see how nature might be taking its chance to flourish, whilst it still can.

Here are some observations:

More places are hearing a dawn chorus

The morning air is smelling cleaner in our cities

Bees on the move are being spotted by more and more people

The night sky has far fewer moving lights to distract us

The roads are quieter

Living out in the countryside, as we do, we can sometimes be blase about these observation. But, now many more people are starting to spot and enjoy them, and that has to be good for us all, as well as for nature.

Stay safe and remain optimistic.
