About Wild Boar Wood Campsite

Suitable For

Families and family groups. Groups and full campsite bookings — yes. Dogs — no.


Wild Boar Wood is located right on the High Weald— a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ashdown Forest is also close to the site and is famously known as the home of Winnie the Pooh. This stunning area has an enviable array of walks and cycle routes and, should you wish to explore in a more laid-back way, the Bluebell Railway is a charming steam locomotive that travels from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead. The Capability Brown designed Sheffield Park and Garden is well worth a visit and can be reached by car in about 10 mins. Borde Hill, one of the country's most magnificent gardens, is around 5 mins drive away. Other attractions include Heaven Farm and the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum. If its restaurants, shops and nightlife you seek, boho beach town Brighton is only a 30 min drive away.

Food & Drink

There is no shop on sight but some excellent pubs and farm shops are within walking distance. The most notable of these is the award-winning High Weald Dairy; why not take part in one of their cheese-making courses? There are two great pubs within a mile and a half of Wild Boar Wood. The Sloop Inn is a traditional Sussex pub serving up classic pub fayre using locally sourced produce. The Green Man in Horsted Keynes is the quintessential English pub— right on the village green.

Wild Glamping gem!

We had a fantastic ‘wild glamping’ long weekend with another family here. It really feels like a hidden treasure in a secret woodland. We only left the campsite to do some food shopping nearby, embracing cooking on the fire with the Dutch ovens. The kids had a wonderful time just being ‘wild’ in the woods.

Thank you for your review Karen. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and and embraced the wildness! We hope to see you again soon.


We just got back from 3 wonderful nights at the Wild Boar campsite. It’s such a special place and even the rain didn’t dampen our spirits! The communal areas feel Covid safe and I saw how thorough the staff were at cleaning the tents when people departed. Everything is very well thought through to make your stay perfect. Thank you so much, we will be back!

Thank you so much Victoria! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay despite the downpour. We're really pleased you were happy with our covid measures as we've worked really hard to make sure every one of our campers remains safe. Please do come back again for more woodland glamping!

The most relaxing, fun and happy camping stay !!1

I took my Mum for 4 nights this Summer and had the best time!. The wood was stunning and the neighbours including the sheep were super friendly and welcoming. We felt very safe regarding covid protection and were finally able to relax and take a step away from hectic lives. The bell tent was stunning. We stayed in hornbeam which is one of the farther reaching tents and felt like we had our own little space that was private and quiet. The staff were super friendly and welcoming and happy to answer questions or just simply have a chat. We didn't travel far as we are local to Sussex but we felt like we were a world away ! They supply everything !! We came over prepared and didn't need too ! From cutlery to chairs, hammocks and storage they have you covered so all you need is food, sleeping covers and whatever you wish to do. We enjoyed watching kids collect bugs, go on night walks and play in the field. Everyday we waved at the bluebell train and the best part was nothing woke you at night because the train only goes daily and you are in a peaceful quiet country lane. Having a campfire was such a great experience and fun to do !. The bucket shower was incredible ! Invigorating, fun and even warm ! With a little effort you can have a really fun experience. Do come with wellies or hiking boots as when it rains, it can get muddy but your private quarters dry very quickly and everything is covered so even if it rains, you still can have a campfire and sit and play games. Such a wonderful and healing experience. We now we come every year to just take some time to ourselves.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review Roseanna! We're so pleased you had a lovely time despite the rain we've had lately and we're so happy to hear you found everything provided helpful! We hope to see you again next season if not before. 

Wonderful Family Campsite

We had such a wonderful time at the Wild Boar Campsite. Steffi and her team are very welcoming and came to meet us at the car park and show us to your tent. It was almost like being at an airbnb! The tent was extremely clean, beds were very comfy for us and our 2 year old who slept on the fold out bed provided. It is very handy to have all the kitchen equipment and your own space with shelter to cook and have a fire. The site only has 9 pitches so it is very small but private at the same time with a field next door for children to play there is also a small hut with toys and books to borrow. Warm water is avaliable throughout the day with extra hot water for bucket showers. In terms of location there are lots of nice pubs nearby, the bluebell railway literally runs along the bottom of the site so you can see it every day. Wakehurst and Sheffield Park are close by too for trips out. We will definitely be coming back.

Thank you so much for your lovely review Amy. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your time at the campsite and the surrounding area. We hope to see you again soon. 

A perfect getaway

We booked one night as a spur of the moment retreat from the city, and it was perfect! Lovely and peaceful, very friendly welcome and very thoughtful in terms of the facilities and gear provided (including walking maps, first aid kit, all the cooking utensils you need) making it a brilliant choice for a last minute getaway as all you need is bedding. Definitely staying longer next time, thank you!
