Having been granted planning permission for the first tree tent in England to be put up on the edge of the ancient woodland that surrounds The Secret Campsites camping meadow, we are now nearly ready to make it available for weekend visits. There has been a growing interest in our Sussex Tree Tent, with the TV series reaching a huge audience of people keen to spend the night in an interesting space, and we would love to hear your thoughts on the Tree Tent, which will soon be joined by another exciting structure, from the Tree Tent designer.

Once things like insurance have been arranged, campers will be able to spend a couple of nights up in the trees with views over the camping meadow. Looking out from the two windows in the suspended tent they will also be able to see The South Downs beckoning them from the distance with its fantastic walks and beautiful downland pubs and villages just 3 miles away at Offham.
Guests will have their own firepit and grass pitch on the ground where they can relax around a campfire as the sun goes down, prior to climbing up into the tree tent for an exciting night hanging between the trees. Access to the tree tent will be along a raised wooden walkway that leads up from the camping meadow, and unlike all other tree houses to date, Jasons Tree Tent is suspended from trees where all others are help up by poles or built around the tree itself. Guests in The Secret Campsites Sussex Tree Tent will be able to watch the sun set in the west, and will wake to the sound of their fellow canopy dwellers singing from the tree tops. They may even feel compelled to join in with the nightingale who appears each Spring on the nature reserve adjoining the Secret campsite.
Jason and his team appeared in George Clark’s Amazing spaces TV series.
