 Absolutely loved this site! Every pitch is private within the woodland but not isolated; great care has been taken to make sure the pitches are level and they are linked with well-maintained paths.

In fact, a great deal of thought has gone into every aspect of the site. It bucketed down on our first night but paths and communal areas remained clean and unaffected.

Children loved exploring the woods and toasting marshmallows on the brilliantly set up firepits. The site was quiet and just stunning, especially in bluebell season. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and walking routes through the woods were well signposted - a nice touch.

We also enjoyed a delicious meal at the Squirrel - well worth booking! This stay converted my non-camping friends and we're planning our next trip - enough said!

 Harry was an amazing host and so kind.

Would visit again!

Loud during the day because of the go cart racing but we didn’t mind as we were off early.

Clean toilets and hot and cold taps, including a place to wash dishes

 Fab place to camp with children. Wooded, secluded with each pitch having a fire pit and loads to waling trails to chose from.

Friendly and helpful staff too!

 Just arrived back from an excellent 3-night break at Beech Estate with my son. The site was one of the best I've stayed on, and I've camped for around 40 years, man and boy :)

Pitching a tent in one of many separate glades in a large woodland full of wildlife meant you are not camping right on top of other groups, and made the place feel very peaceful even on a full Bank Holiday weekend - a huge bonus compared to many other sites. The wardens are extremely friendly and helpful and the site has excellent and very clean facilities (the bucket showers are a great experience; every home should have one!). Waking up to the woodland dawn chorus each morning was fantastic (although we slept in a little later than 4am!) and being able to do all our cooking on an open fire and have a camp fire each evening was a real plus.

Oh, and if you get the chance to order some lamb burgers from the wardens, don't miss out; they are delicious!

 Loved this place, off grid and back to nature.

Camped here with my grandson the first week of April, site was not busy, we stayed in one of the far and away pitches.

The toilet block with showers and flushing toilets was clean and of an acceptable standard.

Compost toilets were also clean, not able to comment on the bucket showers as the weather was not quite right for showering outside.

Plenty to do for kids and so very safe as no cars allowed on the site. As your in the middle of a wood/countryside there are lots that the little ones can do from climbing trees to making dens and acres of land in which to walk and explore.

Near to historic sites and the coast so there is plenty to do for days out.

We enjoyed out time here and would consider returning during the summer months.

 Stayed overnight with 5 year old son. Beautiful setting, it's a lovely part of Sussex. Pitch was in own clearing in woods and was distant enough from other pitches to feel like we had the wood to ourselves. Campsite is laid out to give a choice of remote pitches and areas for more communal camping.

The wardens were very friendly, good-humoured and helpful. Decent sized bags of logs for sale and free maps of local walks. The choice of composting toilets/bucket showers or 'normal' toilets/showers was good, particular as I failed to convince son of merits of the eco-friendly version. A fabulous and memorable introduction to wild(ish) camping.

 We have tried and tested a host of campsites around the UK for our annual group camping trip and have settled on Eco Camp on the Beechwood Estate as our number 1 location and returned in August for the 3rd year in a row - once again we had a truly wonderful stay.

For our group of families with kids ranging from 2 to 15 years old, this really is the perfect spot - a beautiful private meadow in a clearing in the forest with it's own tap and composting toilet and wonderful warm bucket showers only a short stroll away. It feels totally safe and secluded, almost as if we were the only group on the site and delivered everything you could want from a campsite. We enjoyed 5 days of glorious weather, cosy campfires, splendid communal cooking, meteor showers, woodland wanderings, family games and hanging in hammocks - the perfect antidote to busy London living. We can't wait to return next year.

 Having had one of those weeks you don’t want to have and having packed my daughter off with her dad and with a little me time on my hands, I wanted to get away for a night, by myself in a place where I wouldn’t feel like a weird Billy-no-mates, which incidentally I am not, as I have lots of lovely friends. I just wanted some alone time, somewhere beautiful. The angels answered my prayers in the form of EcoCampUK @ Beech Estate.

A sad and unfortunate accident had left the B2096 closed, which was fortunate for me as I got to come in the back way with Loz, the warden, who came to find me. The beauty was stunning and breath taking. To be privy to such beauty leaves me feeling very privileged. I can only describe it as pools of bluebells amongst the woods – something I had heard of but never experienced. Anyway, we reached my pitch, where I deposited my belongings and followed Loz to pick up my wood, that I had pre-ordered. Here I met Theresa (warden and wife to Loz). Loz was greeted by George, the cutest and tamest baby lamb you ever saw (Loz and Theresa are hand rearing him). I pitched the tent, got the fire going and cooked up a lovely Korma. Heaven. Each fire pit comes with a wire grill that you place over the fire, which makes cooking easy. I spent the evening, sat by the fire enjoying the tranquillity of my pitch. Each pitch is situated in its own glade, with a wood chipped path that leads you into it. Your neighbours have their own glades, separated by lots of trees – you know they are there, but their presence doesn’t intrude on your solitude – if that’s what you want. Wood chipped paths run alongside your pitch, but again not too close. You really do feel like you have your own bit of the woodland.

I slept so well. I was awakened at 4. 30am by a loud noise. It was the morning dawn chorus. It was beautiful, I drifted back of to sleep again. When I woke again I had breakfast and got the fire going for morning chai. I marvelled at how lucky I was to be in such a beautiful and amazing place. Whilst I was day dreaming, Theresa (the warden) came and offered me a lift to pick up my car – which was a relief – I knew where I had left it, but didn’t have a clue how to get there. ☺. I tried the bucket shower. They are a fantastic contraption and having tried it, I now believe every home should have one – just make sure that you have washed out all of the soap before your bucket runs out. I think the bucket showers would be a great hit with the kids.

Time to pack up and head back to reality. I will be back with my daughter asap. I also am thinking I would love to come with other friends and family, who I know would love this place. Thanks to EcoCampUK, George, Loz, Theresa and Hugh for giving me such a lovely place that I can escape to. This place really has something to offer everyone. Xxx

 This was the first time camping with our 2 boys, age 1 and 4 and we were looking for something as close to free camping as possible. We used both the compost toilets and the bucket showers with ease, though there are inside showers and toilets if needed. The site was amazing, our pitch was huge, there was so much safe space for the boys to run around without cars or pets allowed on site, it made the time for everyone totally relaxing. Mornings building the fire up to cook bacon and eggs, the days making dens in the woods amongst the blue bells and the nights looking at the stars around a roaring fire! Just perfect.

 We camped at Eco Camp last year with our neighbours and their children so there were 8 of us with two family tents and two 2-man tents. We needed a large enough pitch for eating, BBQ, etc. And they had no problem accommodating us.

The location was peaceful and beautiful - just what you want for camping. The facilities were very good, you can use the modern showers and toilets if you would like to but both the outdoor shower and compost toilets actually work better than we thought. The wardens were very helpful and the wood you can buy there are dry and good for the open fire. The fire pit was great and we had the best campfire!

All in all we absolutely loved it and we have already booked to go back again this year!
