We are really lucky that our campsite near Lewes in sunny East Sussex is so close to all of the exciting and interesting things that go on there.

This autumn is the annual Octoberfeast event when the town and local people showcase their brilliant cooking and eating skills with a fortnight of scoffing and indulgence. It runs from the 18th September until 4th October and is packed with events such as Pop up Suppers, community apple pressing, a soup festival,  expert talks, workshops and masterclasses, and a brilliant street food feast, wow.

To get the best out of the event you might want to book a night or two camping and stay over at our campsite near Lewes, the Secret Campsite. You could even stay at the luxury bed and breakfast next door at whitelodge . We are just 4.5 miles from Lewes and you can easily get a taxi home, or if you haven’t eaten too much and become rather portly you could walk. It only takes a couple of hours and is virtually all off road. You start out along the river Ouse and then across my mates sweetcorn farm and finally criss cross some footpaths past the pub and back down the railway track to the campsite. It’s a breeze and very jolly. No one is likely to hitch, as this seems to be a dying pastime, which is a shame.

  1. This sounds a great idea. How much and can I book for the Friday and Saturday night of the Octoberfest? One tent for me, partner, 7 and 3 year old. Thank you.

    • Hi Andrew, You can book to stay here on one of the weekends using the book now button at the top of the page and then search out an event you like the look of and book direct with them. I look forward to meeting you latter in the year
