Friendly, well maintained, beautiful.

Friendly, well-organised and well-maintained site. The staff are very helpful. Lovely pub, The Squirrel, is a half hour walk away through beautiful woodland. Some spots more secluded than others so there's something for everyone – whether you want a bit of calm and quiet or to be a little more outward facing. I've been three times and love it.

Proper camping

A wonderfully scenic, shaded website. Very clean and well run. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you Russell! We're so pleased you enjoyed the campsite and hope to see you again soon. 

Wonderful experience!

One of the most beautiful campsites I’ve ever been! Off the grid, bucket shower under the stars, cooking on the bbq (cast irons for hire) and great walks. Close to the beach, we went by train (with bike) and cycled to Hastings (and went back with the train) Really great adventure! Thanks guys

Response from Beech Estate Campsite

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your adventure break to Beech Estate! Lovely to be up there with the most beautiful campsites you've visited, we're blessed with the beautiful forest we're in. I hope you're able to visit us again soon. 

Great campsite even in the wet!

We had a great stay in a woodland pitch, which wasn't too boggy given the heavy rain. We felt far enough away from others that our three year old wasn't disturbing anyone. The warm bucket shower under the tree canopy was a real touch of luxury and the rangers couldn't have been friendlier. In fact we wish we could have stayed a bit longer!

Thank you for your lovely review. We're so glad to hear the wet weather didn't dampen your spirits and that you enjoyed your time on site. The bucket showers are always a big hit! We hope you can visit us again for a longer stay.

A beautiful woodland retreat

One of the best, if not the best, campsite we've ever stayed at. An absolutely beautiful location and very well maintained - everything felt clean and safe and always plenty of hand soap and toilet roll. We loved our pitch which was conveniently close to the toilets, showers, water tap and car park but still felt secluded. The only slight downside is that we were hoping to add a couple of friends to our pitch for 2 nights of our 5 night stay, in the same tent, but were told this wasn't possible due to close proximity to other tents. We understood this was likely to be a noise issue and that they were keen to keep things quiet which was fair enough but then it was a bit unfortunate to be sandwiched between two pitches of families who were quite noisy (not an issue given it's a family campsite in half term) but it just tinged our stay feeling we had to be quiet when it was so noisy around us. But otherwise an amazing stay and we can't wait to go back!

Response from Beech Estate Campsite

Thank you for your review and feedback Francesca. We do have to limit numbers on pitches and I'm very sorry this effected your stay this time around. We can usually be very flexible and move you to a larger pitch but as it was so last minute we unfortunately didn't have the availability for this. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay regardless and do hope to see you back at the campsite soon. If you can get in early we'll make sure to give you one of our larger more secluded pitches.
