Total seclusion: A single, furnished bell tent pitched in an ancient woodland on the edge of the South Downs

Beneath the Oaks is a glampsite that seems to mirror much of what’s so special about its surroundings. Just like the local village of Plaistow, this glamping site is small, cute and full of character. And while the village has a historic old church and a playground on the edge of the village green, the glamping site pays its worship to great, ancient trees that tower their leafy spires all around. As for a playground? The woods offer endless fun. All you need is a little imagination.

Comprised of just a single bell tent, furnished with beds, drawers, chairs, tables, cushions and rugs, this small-scale site is a truly special place. Bag a night here and you have the whole place to yourself, with woodland trails to wander, a rope-swing dangling invitingly from a tree and bluebells carpeting the floor in spring. Build a den, clamber among the branches or while away the hours around your private campfire. And, while the village may be lovely, it’s as much as you can do to convince yourself to leave. The animals are company enough and the tranquillity of it all is just wonderful. Why head anywhere else?

Lets imagine you do make it out of the woods for a day, though. Hypothetically speaking, you could drive to National Trust-owned Petworth House, a splendid seventeenth-century stately home with a sprawling 700 acres of parkland to its name. Or you could use one of the OS maps provided in the tent to plan a good walking route, out of the trees, across the meadows and into the heart of the South Downs National Park.

Stay back at camp, meanwhile, and you can cook over the campfire or brew yourself a cup of coffee in the cafetiere provided. And that’s surely one of the real benefits of having just the single tent on site. It allows that extra attention to detail that bigger sites can’t match. From the ready-hung bunting to the selection of books, this small but simple site has everything you need. And all beneath the ancient oaks that give the place its name.
