 Quiet location, spacious. Encourage campfires, well organised and good facilities except for off-season toilet facilities, basically OK but too small, cramped and lacking ventilation.

Exceptional cust service to be commended. Management seem to care about running a good site.

Will stay again.

 We like this campsite. The refurbishments have been amazing The shop and office are really well done and stock most small items you could need while the staff are super helpful.

Had a huge amount of rainfall the week before we arrived but there were sites that were drained well although the the main walking route to the toilets was continuously wet needing wellies.

We will return another year again.

Our children made friends and enjoyed the simple swings and forest walks.

 2nd stay at Camp Wowo, this time with friends who booked separately.

Great for young kids and adults. Friendly and welcoming with camp fires allowed for toasting marshmallows. Always a favourite!

I experienced the new spa facility this year, which was nice

 Amazing site. We went just after Covid-19 lockdown and found all the facilities super clean with extra hand sanitiser at the bathrooms showers and wash up stations.

The staff are friendly and the site is safe for our children.

We really enjoyed our time there

Reviewer: Black-deuce 12 reviews from this member

 Wow is a really good family site, thanks to its natural setting of fields and woods, the fire pits in every pitch, a variety of organised activities, the two popular donkeys and visiting take-away stalls/vans.

It's a huge site and I think our field was mainly for families. Certainly there were plenty of kids who could play happily and safely - without causing the slightest nuisance. Pitches are generously sized.

The camp shop sells good quality produce, while logs are available for delivery to the pitch. In high season there is a daily rota of visits from food vendors, giving a choice of pizza, fish and chips, paella, teas and coffees.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful. Possibilities include trips to the Ashdown Forest (and Pooh Bridge), Eastbourne, Lewes, Pevensey and Brighton.

The toilet and shower facilities were distinctly moderate and a small negative was the tendency for field entrances to get muddied up after heavy rain (despite piles of woodchip in the vicinity).

 There is a reason this site is so popular and booked up so far in advance! A great atmosphere - almost like a little festival. Lots of opportunity for adventure for kids. Pitches well laid out and arranged around firepits. The barn is handy for hanging out on the rainiest days. We've been a few times already and will keep coming back.

 Stayed in the Hobbit yurt for the first time in a chilly weekend in March. We were amazed at how well set up the yurt was and everything you could need was available therefore we were able to get the log burner up and roaring within 10 minutes. Inside was clean, comfortable and cosy- we especially loved the little touches such as tea lights dotted around inside. We made the most of the Yurt by ordering a takeaway and spent the evening round the campfire outside. Loved our weekend at Wowo and can't wait to return in the summer months when the days are a little longer to make the most of all the campsite has to offer!

 We are family of five that stayed there over one night. Kids loved it and then the parents are happy. Very clean and service minded staff. Would like to point out that we need some assistance due to problems with our tent and got excellent help from one of the staff, it is always a pleasure when members of the staff are willing to walk the extra mile to help its customers. Highly recommended specially for families with kids.

Reviewer: Nickyl 2 reviews from this member

 We stayed at Wowo with a school group of 28, Monday to Friday. For our students who all have communication and interaction difficulties, it was brilliant - very quiet and lots of space. The staff were extremely helpful, and understanding - when a student let their chickens out early one morning it was not a major issue. By Tuesday afternoon we were the only campers in a huge field (easily twice the size of 2 football pitches). Hopefully the campers on the site had always intended to leave Monday evening/ Tuesday morning.

There was lots of space, there is a shallow stream with stepping stones to play in, and plenty of woodlands just deep enough to give the students the feel of being hidden, and lots of tree swings.

Some of the students struggled with the pump flush system in the toilets, and the rustic lifestyle of camping in general, but their overwhelming feedback was very positive.

 Great site with ample facilities. They also had themed food nights including freshly made pizzas and paella nights hosted by the huge canvas Tipi in site centre. Sadly the paella chef forgot to turn up on our night but that was just bad luck! In evening we sat in the Tipi around a big fire brazier with a handful of musicians who played on both nights we stayed. Bonus points below.

Camp fires allowed and they give a trestle to use too for cooking.

There's a shop selling fresh bread and many other local produce on site.

You can pre book various excursions.

Often good acoustic musicians play in the tipi village.

Individual and family shower facilities.

There's a country pub within 25 min cross country walk.

Child friendly and we met many returning families with kids.

Barn has charging points for phone and some old toys and game facilities

Firewood delivered to your pitch

Dogs allowed*

Coast not so far away if you fancy a drive to change of scenery. Such as Brighton under 30 minutes.

Bad points below:

Shop is a tad pricy

On paella night chef didn't turn up (though think this hasn't happened before)

Some dog breeds not allowed due to previous campers concerns, Rottweilers, Alsatians, Pit Bulls and Boxers.

No camper vans with exception to VW Campervan sized vehicles.

Overall it's nice place and has a real old fashioned rustic feel but more quirky than many other campsites.

Especially the mini Tipi canvas area known as the village.

Price not bad for facilities on offer.
