Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you allow caravans or motorhomes? We allow VW style/size campervans and sprinter-type campervans, but no towed caravans or motorhomes. We do not have electrical hook-ups or chemical waste disposal.

  • How many people/tents per pitch?  We don't have pre-defined pitches, which allows for a variety of party shapes and sizes, however when you book, we will need to know how many people/sizes of tents there are in the party, so that we can allocate a suitable area to accommodate you all

  • Can we bring a gazebo? We are happy for you to bring gazebo's and awnings, as long as you are sensible about not taking up too much space. As long as everyone on site is happy, then we're happy.

  • Is there any electricity available (or phone chargers)? No, unfortunately we do not have these facilities currently.  Quality travel solar charging panels are recommended, and can be sourced for around £40.  To keep food cool in your cool-bag, we recommend bringing frozen food which can defrost on day 1, ready for day 2.  Additionally, we find using frozen plastic bottles of water, milk or squash more effective for wild camping, than the blue ice-packs.

  • Can we park next to our pitch? Due to no hard-standing around pitches, we can only allow vehicles up to the pitch to unload during dry weather conditions.  At other times, we will supply wheelbarrows for the short transfer from the path. Vehicles can not be left next to tents for safety reasons and are to be parked in the car park at the campsite entrance for the duration of your stay.

  • Do you allow dogs on site? We are dog friendly, but dogs must be kept under control/on a lead, barking overnight is unacceptable. We charge £5 per night per dog, payable upon booking. Please let us know when booking if you intend to bring your four legged friend as we have a limit on how many dogs we will allow on site at one time. A dog waste bin is located uphill from the compost toilets.

  • What time can we arrive on site? The campsite manager will be on site to greet you between 2pm and 7pm. If you need to arrive outside of these times then please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you.

  • Do you allow camp fires? Yes! Every pitch has its own private fire pit, and the Campsite Manager will visit every pitch each evening around 5/6pm to sell local firewood and kindling, kiln dried to the latest strict Government moisture levels. If you need wood out of hours then please contact the Campsite Manager directly by phone (07889052334) and we can arrange a wood drop off for you. Please do not bring your own firewood or burn wood found in surrounding woodland.  as 1. We cannot be certain that the wood complies to UK moisture laws, and 2. Wood often contains screws and nails that are left in the fire and can cause harm to wildlife and campers alike.

  • Are there any hills on your campsite? Yes, we have a slope separating the top of the campsite, where the majority of pitches are, and the bottom of the campsite, where you will also find the woods.  This means the access to all areas of the site may be difficult for wheelchair access and people with mobility issues.   If mobility is a concern, please email us with your specific needs.

  • Can we choose where we pitch our tent? Yes this is possible, however when we have larger group bookings, these will dictate which pitches are free.  If you have been before and have a preference as to where you would like to be pitched then please let us know and we will do our best to reserve that spot for you.

  • What facilities are available? Our campsite currently has composting toilets and portaloos, as well as a urinal.  There are hand wash basins next to the toilets, multiple washing up basins & hot showers within a short walk from your tent, with all facilities cleaned to a high standard regularly.​  We provide biodegradable washing up liquid and dish brushes and ask you only use our liquid, so as to protect the wildlife.  Eco-friendly hand sanitizer will also be conveniently sited or your use.  There are no food outlets or shops on-site.

  • Are you environmentally friendly? Yes! Saving the planet is at the heart of how we manage our site.  As previously mentioned, we have introduced compost toilets, which avoid using water and the waste is later used to (safely) nourish hedges and trees (off site). We provide  environmentally friendly washing up liquid and brushes at the wash stations and have plastic free sponges available for sale (please ask). We also provide recycled toilet paper and offer a 10% discount to our guests travelling to us by foot, bike or public transport. Please read our full 'Environmental Policy' for more information.

  • Can we have a BBQ? Off ground BBQ's are welcomed, but please avoid using disposable BBQ's as they burn the grass, as well as being bad for the environment.

  • What other attractions do you have on site? We offer a variety of massages and energy healing in a treatment tent on-site and have an outside Yoga class (suitable for all) on Saturday mornings - please visit our Massage/Reiki an Yoga page for further information. We also have a table tennis table, and can set up a badminton court on request, and a few other outdoor games you can borrow for a small deposit, so please ask.

  • Will you deliver ice cream to me on a hot Saturday afternoon? Our local ice cream van visits the site every Saturday around 4pm, so don't miss out! 

  • Is there space to play games? Yes! There is lots of space on the field and wooded area to play games.  You may hang your own swings/hammock in the wooded areas, at your own risk.  We have a ping pong table in the woods and a net for badminton,so please  bring your own bats and balls. We also have some other games you can borrow for a small deposit, so please ask.

  • Where do we put our rubbish/recycling? Earth Camp is a rubbish free site, so we kindly ask that you bring your own bin bags and take your rubbish and recycling away with you at the end of your stay.  Maresfield amenity tip is a 2 mile drive east along the A272.  Any rubbish bags  you can not take with you, will be subject to a £5 disposal fee, thanks.
