The Secret Campsite is a peaceful campsite for nature lovers and their families, who are looking to go glamping in Sussex, Brighton or Lewes. Our camping meadow is kept car and dog free to allow children to roam and explore safely. We provide trolleys to transport your belongings to The Secret Shelters, which are just a couple of minutes from the car park and have a quiet time after 10 pm to allow for the sounds of wildlife to fill the site.

We offer a secluded location in a beautiful setting with great access to cycling, walking and exploring the South Downs. It is a perfect base to explore Sussex, South Down National Park, visit local beaches, historical houses and gardens and enjoy the vibrant and historic town of Lewes.

The Gridshell was lovingly created by Brighton based designer Jason Thawley along with our Tree Tent. The structure is comprised of locally sourced wooden laths of ash clad in a heavy duty cotton canvas and it will happily sleep up to 6 people. It is located in the orchard part of the campsite with its own firepit and a grass area for you to relax on and enjoy the sunshine and Sussex wildlife. It is the ideal accommodation for wild glamping in South East England for families and friends alike and to stay in a one of kind camping pod in Sussex.

We provide 2 double beds with mattresses and 2 extra mattresses for those sleeping on the floor. There are free hot showers and toilets at the campsite. The Gridshell has its own fire pit with 2 eclectic chairs for you to relax in front of the fire. There is also a willow withy and table for campers to cook on, offering some protection from the elements, but not much. We will also provide basic equipment such as a camping stove, a kettle, mugs, plates and cutlery for your trip.

You will need to bring your own bedding as well as your own towels. You also need to bring any food you will need. Please note that you can’t cook inside the The Gridshell, so you should bring along any cooking shelter that you require such as a small tent or a gazebo.

Please note 2 nights min stay / 3 nights for a Bank Holiday.
