1 unit · Glamping3 acres · East Sussex, South East England
Wildling Camp is in a tranquil location in East Sussex and is a campsite which can be rented for you and your group. Therefore perfect for private parties, retreats and special gatherings A space for those that are looking for the quiet life, and an opportunity to escape the stresses and strains of modern living off - grid with family and friends. A very safe environment for children and animals Tune into nature and know that your trip is having little impact on the environment. You don't need to pack anything other than yourselves. Accommodation is available on an exclusive use basis for 16+ in a converted horsebox and a 3 beautiful luxury bell tents, including a communal space, firepit, eco toilet and shower. Almost everything you may need to camp as comfortably as possible is provided, so you only need to pack the bare minimum. Wildlings Camp is set on a beautiful piece of land with views over the downs. Look out for deer and badgers scampering across the field in the mornings and buzzards in the sky. And the inquisitive ducks who have moved in and follow you around. You have your own beautiful large field, perfect for games, picnics or to do yoga in the morning, perhaps up by the pond? It is set within 40 acres of a farm with rights of way leading in all directions On the site there is a private indoor swimming pool in a magnificent 18th century converted barn, with a hot shower and toilet. It is heated to 32° which means on any grey wet days you have the back up of a lovely warm space and entertainment for the kids. This can be rented out on an hourly basis up to 10 guest per time. Pricing is PER HEAD. and numbers are extendable. In addition, "Little Wildlings" is a smaller version of the main camp in the adjacent field. The option is available to supplement the main camp by adding "Little Wildlings" to your booking, (depending upon availability). Gloria is a 7.5 tonne horsebox repurposed into a cosy comfy accommodation. Self sufficient in power via solar, converted using almost nothing but recycled materials 'wombled' from skips, recycling plants, and from what existed inside already, re-used in another capacity. As seen on series 2, ep4 George Clarke's Amazing Spaces on Channel 4. Gloria is also listed as a separate unit if the main campsite isn't booked out. Inside you will find 2 really comfy double beds, one above the cab with a porthole for looking at the tree tops, and one that is a sofa bed for chilling on during the day with a view straight out the back ramp when it's open. Sitting in bed in the morning with that ramp open is one of the most wonderful things. There is a small basic kitchen with gas hob and a fridge with small freezer.. And a dining table. A stereo with speakers both sides and she is fully insulated. Phone charging points. Gloria is a great option for those that aren't that keen on camping or tents, she's a unique cosy home from home. Warm, dry and lots of fun to stay in. Gloria sleeps 4 comfortably but a fold out bed can be added for an extra child at no extra cost. Basic provisions will be provided so you don’t have to lug all of that with you. This means things like olive oil, salt and pepper, basic herbs and spices and some herbal and builders teas bags. ‘Molly’ is a 5m bell tent with a full size double bed with a memory foam so no sleeping on the floor, and 2 singles. Lit and warmed by a candle chandelier and fairy lights. Romantic and dreamy. 'Moira' is more contemporary 5m bell tent, with an incredibly comfortable double futon and 2 singles. The sides can be lifted in hot weather to let the breeze in. There is plenty of room to add an extra single bed if need be. 'Felix' is another 5m bell tent This tent can be configured however you request fitting up to 6 singles. . I have one child's 'easy bed' blow up mattress and sleeping bag. A travel cot can be arranged. So numbers are from a minimum of 8 and comfortably up to 16. (Please see my other listing where it is possible to rent just Gloria for 4 people during off peak periods) A horse trailer "Lulu" has been converted into an off grid shower with an extra compost loo. Wildlings Camp is set on a beautiful piece of land with views over the downs. Look out for deer and badgers scampering across the field in the mornings and buzzards in the sky. On the site there is a private indoor swimming pool in a magnificent 18th century converted barn, with a hot shower and toilet. It is heated to 32° which means on any grey wet days you have the back up of a lovely warm space and entertainment for the kids. This can be rented out on an hourly basis and includes a life guard, for £70 per hour, up to 8 guest per time, which works out around £8 per person dependent on group size. This will be by separate arrangement as the pool belongs to the main house and is rented out as a swim school. I am renting it on your behalf as and when you book sessions. Access is very strictly monitored and only available as and when you book it I endeavour to be as gentle on the environment there as possible. I have a stringent "leave no trace" motto. Therefore to ensure no nasty chemicals are going into the ground I will provide locally made 100% natural cleaning and showering products for your use whilst on site. (Not necessary for the pool) Among other things the bedding is organic approved and I'm using an ethical green insurance company and totally green cleaning products and washing powders. A fire pit is provided and a basket of local sourced logs on arrival will be free and more can be ordered for £8 per load. These will need to be ordered in advance. There are 2 BBQs. One for meat, one for vegetarian. I can arrange for a company called Leaf and Ladle to deliver to site pre ordered vegan/vegetarian meals made with entirely organic ingredients, all the vegetables being grown themselves. Hearty happy nutritional meals that are feast for the eyes and incredibly good for you. Food is delivered in cardboard food boxes and trays, an array of salads and dips, one main dish ie a curry or tagine that can be heated up on the fire and served in the pots provided. No cooking or washing up necessary. A wonderfully nourishing add on. I also have 2 inflatable paddle boards for use on the nearby river or down at the sea, that I can rent out for £20 per board per booking. [To be used at your own risk)

Hastingford Fishery Glamping

4 units · Glamping32 acres · Uckfield, England
Searching for a peaceful holiday/short break without kids underfoot? Ramble along to Hastingford Fishery, an adults-only shepherd's hut and fishing site set in a scenic lakeside setting less than five minutes’ drive from the East Sussex village of Hadlow Down and 20 minutes from Royal Tunbridge Wells. This site should suit couples or singles wanting to 'get away from it all' and also fishing fans down to the ground. It’s got several fishing lakes to choose from with lots of different species, so settle down on the banks with rod in hand and while away a few hours (or days) in quiet contemplation, waiting for something to bite. But please note, the site is not for 'competition anglers' although there are plenty of good sized carp around. and asks anyone fishing to only use barbless hooks, and for fish to be returned to the lake quickly after being caught.Not the fishing type? Chill out in and around your secluded hut, or there’s plenty to entertain in a leisurely fashion: paths wind around the lakes and through copses/shaws (as this is the High Weald) plus through the local countryside. There are spectacular views towards the South Downs National Park from the top lakes. A spring-fed lake is also on site to cool off in with some wild swimming. Lots of bird life around, with feeders outside each hut and waterfowl visitors to the lakes.When it comes to eats, pick up or have supplies delivered from supermarkets or takeaways in Uckfield, Heathfield or Crowborough or take a drive to Buxted Park for some posh food or pubs in Blackboys, Crowborough, Ringles Cross, 5 Ash Down, Rotherfield, or Buxted (it'll take about 10 minutes to drive to any of these). Lots of sample menus in huts.

6 units · Glamping3 acres · Cranbrook, England
We are a family run glamping site in the beautiful Weald of Kent. We are off the beaten track on a secluded farm, at the end of a no through lane, nestled between woods, apple orchards and fields of lambs. We are an eco friendly site: no power, camping as it should be with nature all around. Settle in to the sound of the birds, watch the lambs playing in the fields, play games with your friends or family, roast marshmallows on the campfire, star gaze by night and maybe spot a deer at sunrise. We decided to create Dingle St Glamping so we could share our little bit of paradise with others. Come and rent an individual bell tent or alternatively rent the entire site for you and your friends. Both options are possible.

Glamping near Ramsgate with swimming guide

Overview

Just a quick hop from London, Ramsgate is surrounded by the Kent coastline and countryside, with all kinds of outdoor fun right on its doorstep. Whether you’re keen to hike along sea-hugging chalk cliffs, cycle across the rolling South Downs, or go rock-climbing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, or wild swimming, you’ll find it here. Campers can pick from eco-conscious farms, beachside plots, and forest, as well as glamping huts, tents, and yurts for all budgets.

Where to go

Kent Downs

With woodland campsites, glamping huts, view-laden caravan parks, and seasonal pop-up camps, the Kent Downs AONB makes a spectacular inland escape from Ramsgate (it’s under an hour away). The tranquil landscape flows from chalk ridges to ancient forests and Dover’s White Cliffs, covering 880 square kilometres. Walk some of the 250-km North Downs Way (once a pilgrimage route), go biking and horse riding, and pop into farm shops for Kentish goodies. 

Along the Kent Coast

Spreading north and south from Ramsgate, the Kent coast is packed with beautifully positioned campsites, glamping spots, and holiday parks overlooking chalk cliffs and the English Channel. Explore bohemian Margate, buzzy Deal, arty Folkestone, wild Botany Bay, or weekend favourite Whitstable, then dive into the coastal walks and water sports.

High Weald AONB

An hour’s drive southwest of Ramsgate you’ll reach the High Weald AONB, a jewel among southern England’s protected natural spaces. Cobbled villages and chalk-dusted cliffs give way to 1,500 square km of undulating heathland, streams, and wildlife-rich forests, making it an idyllic area for camping and outdoor adventure. Kayaking, horse riding, hiking, cycling, and rock-climbing are big draws here, as is the literary heritage of Ashdown Forest. 

South Downs

Sprawling between Winchester and Eastbourne (and about two hours’ drive from Ramsgate), the South Downs National Park rolls over 1,500 square km of classic southeastern countryside. Wonderful hikes run along the well-marked, long-distance South Downs Way, with views disappearing out to sea. You can pitch up everywhere from bell tents on working farms to beachside caravan parks. 

When to go

Spring (March to May) is the best time to hike, camp and explore with trees in bloom and warmer weather, though there are no sunshine guarantees. Summer brings (generally) the warmest weather and beachy fun (with water sports and more), but also high-season crowds, especially on the coast. September and October can be a lovely time for quieter outdoor adventuring as the countryside shows off its autumn colours. Sidestep the crowds by avoiding bank holidays (especially in May and August) and travelling during the week.

Know before you go

  • Ramsgate has excellent rail links with London (one to two hours), as well as buses and trains to/from Margate, Folkestone, Deal and other coastal towns. For the surrounding parks and forests, you’ll need your own wheels. 
  • There are plenty of supermarkets, specialised delis, and shops selling outdoors gear in Ramsgate, as well as cafes, pubs, and restaurants near the parks. 
  • Book all campsite slots and other accommodation well in advance, especially from May to September. 
  • Some protected nature reserves don’t permit camping, but often have reliable campsites nearby.
