The two 'Faraway Bell Tents' pitches are set a distance from the main campsite. (Request one of these in the 'notes' section if you want added privacy and we will allocate one if possible).

Nearby

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.

Lovely woodland stay

Had a fab time with our toddler who didn't want to leave. We only live ten mins away but felt a world away, surrounded by wildlife. Can't wait for our next stay

Response from Wild Boar Wood Campsite

Thank you Jemma! We're so happy you and your little one enjoyed your time with us. How lovely to be just around the corner, less travelling time means more time for relaxing and adventuring in the woodland. Please come back and stay again.

Wild camping - but with convenience and luxury

Extremely welcoming staff, accommodation on a par with the best bell tent set ups, well stocked supplies (wood, wine, marshmallows) and a true back to nature feel with bucket showers but the Best Bit for us was letting the kids run free safe on the knowledge they were safe and making friends. Truly excellent family camping option for those looking for a rustic experience without the fear of turning the camping in to an endurance event! Thanks Stefi for making our stay spot on!

Response from Wild Boar Wood Campsite

Outdoor living in an amazing bluebell wood

We stayed for the bank holiday weekend with our 15mo toddler, he loved the freedom of exploring the pathways & particularly liked wandering to the ‘shop’ to borrow a tractor from the toy box The bluebells were fabulous, the tents are enormous and it was fantastic to have a travel cot waiting for us- one less thing to pack! Everything is super clean, the bucket showers were hot and lasted a good 5 minutes. All the equipment is provided including firewood. If it’s chilly pack an extra duvet and a hot water bottle Steffi is the perfect host-thanks for a great weekend, it felt so good to be outdoors again!

Response from Wild Boar Wood Campsite

Thank you so much Emma. So lovely to read about your experience and to hear you were so looked after by Steffi. Bluebell season is a magical time to experience and we're so happy you and your family had such a great stay, we hope to see you again soon.

Relaxing, quiet and magical mid-week stay

Waking up at Wild Boar Wood on a still and sunny September morning felt like waking up on a film set - with dappled sunlight filtering through the trees and even a robin joining us for breakfast! I stayed mid-week in September with two friends. The site was lovely and quiet and I would definitely recommend mid-week stays at this time of year for couples or friends who want to cook and catch up round the campfire. Steffi, the site warden, is brilliant, inspiring and clearly loves the woodland which helps you to enjoy it too. It was very quiet during our stay so we had no worries about social distancing etc. In fact, we hardly saw the other campers and the facilities were very clean so it felt like a very safe stay in 2020 - as well as a very enjoyable one! We will return!

Can't wait to come back

We loved our 2 nights at Wild Boar Wood and so did our boys (2 and 5). The bell tent was massive, comfy, cosy and everything fantastically clean. Steffi was so welcoming and showed us around before we settled in. We'll be back next year for more campfires, birdsong and adventures.
