A unique wild camping experience, set in 200 acres of ancient Kent woodland just a hour from central London, 7 miles from Ashford international train station. Pluckley is the nearest train station, 1.9 miles away.
On the edge of a vast ancient forest of oak, hornbeam, ash, hazel, birch, hawthorn and poplar. The camping area is approx 4 acres within secondary ancient woodland oak ash hornbeam hazel birch and hawthorn. We regularly change the area marked out for wild camping to minimise impact on the woodland. There are just three pitches per day, for up to two adults, (minimum age 16) who can each use their own tent/tarp/bivvy, or share. We now also offer a glamping option, a 4m diameter bell tent for two adults.
We will meet you at the gate to the woods and show you to your pitch, you can now park your car next to your pitch, and campervans are also allowed. We will give you a bag of firewood for cooking, which is included in the price. No wood should be picked up off the forest floor for ecological reasons. Only small cooking fires are allowed, no large heating fires. Please bring everything you will need, this is a true wild camp experience but we do now have a compost toilet. We have no running water, but if you are hiking, cycling or using public transport and find it difficult to bring water with you we can provide 5 Ltr water for a small fee, please request this in advance.
Bookings start from 12 midday on the booking date (2pm for the bell tent) and end midday the following day. No more than 2 days can be booked at any one time for the wild camping but the bell tent can be booked for up to one month. Maximum for either option is usually 2 people on any one night but please contact us by text or email if you wish to book for any extras. No dogs allowed.
Leave no trace is the essence of wild camping.
