This isn’t a normal office desk. But then, this isn’t a normal office. 

It’s a simple desk in a nature reserve.

A place with none of the usual office distractions.

Just a simple desk, surrounded by wildlife

Every year we are asked by numerous campers if we have space where they can finish a project, do a little creative thinking or just complete their admin.

They want to enjoy the freedom of camping, do some work, but not go to work. 

So here’s our solution…

Introducing the Secret Office

The Secret Office is our antidote to the “bored room” and it’s now open for business. 

Campers can rent a desk from us and ditch the everyday office for a few days spent with nature. 

Hold the commute and the expensive coffees and lunches. Swap all of this for a desk at a location, surrounded by wildlife and other like minded folk. 

Now, a little more detail about this unique, rather unusual desk.

It comes with high speed wifi and free coffee and tea. 

That’s it.

And more

But, to add some zest, there’s free car parking and electric vehicle charging points. The showers are hot and the toilets are completely normal. 

You can use the spacious office fridge for your lunch ingredients. You can buy evening drinks from our licensed cafe which can be poured by the campfire, less than 90 seconds after leaving the office. 

There’s a maximum of 4 desks in the office, so you might get to meet some other inquisitive folk who want to work AND stay in nature. 

Feel free to arrive anytime from 9am for that night’s camping. The office shuts at 6:00pm sharp so you have plenty of time to relax and seek inspiration from the other local residents, whatever the species.

The nature calendar

Your base at the Secret Campsite will give you an unending stream of nature.

See the Brimstones and Adders in April, listen to Nightingales and Cuckoos in May. Watch butterflies in June (especially the marbled whites), and Glow worms in July.

Come September, forage for mushrooms and as the season draws to a close, listen to the haunting deer rut throughout October.

Your days schedule

Bask in this change of scenery, an upturn in creativity and …

…rather than the frenetic commute you can lie in bed a little longer, listening to the dawn chorus. Pop on the boots and explore the neighbouring woods, before coffee and breakfast and the 90 second walk to your new desk. 

After lunch at your tent and a peaceful afternoon of toil, why not finish the day with a walk along the seafront at Seaford, or a quiet campfire. Then drift off, under the stars, to the sounds of owls in their neighbouring woods.

You can always choose to stay in one of our Secret Shelters, choose from the Okra, the Gridshell or sleep up high in the Tree Tent.

The small print

The Secret Office is only available on weekdays, outside the school holidays. It cost £21 per desk per day. It’s open to all over 18 years. This is a quiet, peaceful office and not suited for those who need to make lots of phone calls.
