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. Each pitch is for up to two adults, (minimum age 16) who can each use their own tent/tarp/bivvy, or share. No dogs allowed.
We will meet you and show you to your pitch. Campervans are welcome. There is space to park within the woodland. Firewood can be purchased from us at the site - £12 for a large bag full. Kindling is also available for £3. It is very important that no wood is picked up off the forest floor for ecological reasons. We also ask you not to bring wood into the forest becasue that could bring in diseases that could affect our trees. 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 15 Ltr water for £10, please request this in advance.
Bookings start from 12 midday on the booking date and end midday the following day. Maximum is usually 2 people on any one night but please contact us by text or email if you wish to book for any extras.
