Sam Lees Nightingales around the campsite

Every year in spring we are lucky enough to play host to a growing group of nightingales in and around the campsite. Sussex is a great county for these secretive birds as they like to stay hidden ideally in some scrub or a prickly bush where they are hard to find for any prying eyes […]

New Year, New opportunities

2017 was a good year but as always when the next year arrives, everyone’s heads lift up and we start to think about the things we will do in the coming 12 months. My resolution is to get more wildlife opportunities into the site and to find some new sites where we can create more […]

November is my favourite month of the year. Selfishly its my birthday, which means a few drinks with friends and some interesting presents. This year I have been inundated with the most fantastic set of bird boxes which we will be putting up around the campsite and on the new building which we have called […]

First frosts arrive with the sheep

Once the campsite is closed for the season, we get to work with landscaping different areas around the site. The Secret Campsite is set up to provide a fantastic array of habitats for a wide range of species. In turn this enables campers to come into contact with some beautiful and unusual creatures and plants […]

Electric car charging point installed

With our eyes to the future we at last got round to join the electric car revolution. To avoid us running out of fuel we have installed an electric car charging point at the campsite, which campers are welcome to use when it is free. The unit was installed with government grants by a firm called […]
