Our campsite is located at the Bentley Estate in East Sussex, giving you the perfect rural retreat for your holiday. Apart from exploring the picturesque grounds in the estate or playing games in the camping field or wooden adventure playground, you can take a family trip on the miniature Bentley railway, visit the unique collection of cars and motorcycles at the Bentley motor museum, view the amazing collection of wildfowl birds or indulge yourself at the tearooms with afternoon tea and cake – all conveniently located on the doorstep of the campsite.
