Stayed here for 2 nights on the basis of other reviews. Good points - Fridge and freezer. Location and staff. Wheelbarrows provided to haul tents etc from car. Plots are reasonable distance from neighbouring campers. Bad points - Communal toilet and shower block. Pretty grim.More

Thank you for your feedback Paula. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay but so sorry about your experience with the facilities. These are cleaned on a daily basis and so it shouldn't have been the case when you visited. Please do accept our apologies...More

This is the place to come to escape. There are no noisy groups, no dogs, no loud music. Just big pitches set in beautiful grassland with lots of trees and wild flowers and wildlife abundant. We love it so much we stay all the day...More

I’m not a natural camper - I like my comfort, so I was surprised that I enjoyed my stay as much as I did. The showers and facilities are brilliantly maintained, there is plenty of space around each pitch and the silence at night is...More

About
Description
The Secret Campsite (Lewes) is one of The Secret Campsites, a collection of Real Camping and Wild Glamping sites focused on nature, peace and space. The site is a small tent only campsite 5 miles north of More Lewes in East Sussex. We have very large pitches and we allow campfires. The camping meadow is surrounded by ancient woodland filled with an abundance of wildlife and visitors often see kestrels, owls and deer amongst a huge variety of other species including Glow worms in July and August. Our camping meadow is kept car and dog free to allow children to roam and explore safely. We provide trolleys to transport your belongings into the camping field, which is just a couple of minutes from the car park. We have a quiet time after 10 pm to allow for the sounds of wildlife to fill the site. We offer hot showers, new flushing toilets and covered washing-up facilities. Less
