Campsite in east sussex

With no cars on site, there was even less noise (and plenty of barrows to move gear from car to pitch). We managed to strike up a few good conversations with other campers at the washing up facilities, which was a lovely alternative to the straight faces of London.

This left us to the glorious sounds of nature, peace and tranquility. There was also a fridge on site with plenty of space. There is so much space between the pitches here that it has probably spoiled any other campsite for me!

Stretching over 10,000 acres between Eastbourne and Hastings, the area is a large grazing marsh and home to many species of wetland bird and wildlife.

It’s also home to our 200-acre family-run working farm and campsite.

Best of all the pitches are far apart so we didn't hear the other tents at all- no zip noise, talking or anything else at all- and each pitch has it's own fire put where you can light real fires with wood they sell there. I have just returned from the most wonderful stay in the Gridshell at the Secret Campsite with my grandchildren.

We loved being so close to the woods and made the most of the great nature walks you can take, seeing the deer at night really made the trip, alongside all the other birds and nature you never to get to see as Londoners.

We especially liked the Secret Teapot and took advantage of the great hot chocolates provided!

It is a perfect base to explore Sussex and visit local beaches, historical houses and gardens and enjoy the vibrant and historic town of Lewes. The best place I know to get away from the rush of the modern world.

And so peaceful, no music, no dogs, no computers and no one near you. A full five stars is not enough for the great job they do at making peace possible. We had a wonderful stay at the Secret Campsite (weekend 19/20 Sept 2015) and really appreciate the generous hospitality of our host Tim.
