Uckfield, East Sussex
Escape from the hustle and bustle at Walkwood Wagon, surrounded by beautiful National Trust bluebell woodlands in Sussex.
Walkwood Wagon offers an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Hidden away in secluded bluebell woodland, this peaceful campsite is a welcome chance to unwind and get in touch with nature. A Swedish bath is waiting to be heated up outside and help you relax in serene comfort. Soak up the natural beauty of your surroundings, gorgeous National Trust woodlands, while you slow down the pace and wash away any stress.
This is the perfect opportunity to spend a little time completely off the grid. While the wagon is equipped with the modern conveniences of running water and a flushing toilet, you'll be largely without power. You'll be surprised how little you miss it as you'll have everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. A campfire or the wood-burner will take care of the cooking, as well as keeping you warm and toasty during the evenings.
The wagon itself blends in perfectly with its tranquil surroundings. The cosy interior is home to oak features and floral wallpaper which makes the wagon bright and welcoming. No need to worry about not having enough space either, with several clever solutions for storing your belongings while you’re visiting. The outdoor camp kitchen might be basic but it has everything you’ll need for anything from toasting marshmallows over the campfire to trying your hand at a bit of wood-burner cooking.
The wagon is ideally located for those who want to explore the many miles of woodland trails or hike across the South Downs National Park. Nearby, you’ll find the wonderfully preserved Bluebell Railway where you can hop on a steam train and enjoy a trip from the 19th century between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead. The railway is regularly used by filmmakers and you might recognise sets from TV series and films such as Downton Abbey or even Muppets Most Wanted. For a bit more sightseeing, visits to the nearby Glyndebourne and Charleston House make for an interesting day trip. You won't be short on places to eat either as there are plenty of great pubs in the surrounding towns and villages, such as The Griffin Inn in Fletching or The Peacock in Piltdown.

Despite the wet weather, we enjoyed our time at the Wagon for the NYE weekend. The outdoor hot tub was fantastic & worth the effort of getting the fire going. The Wagon itself was very warm, cosy and very secluded - even without the leaves on the trees. The gas hob in the outdoor kitchen was a welcome bonus - as it was too wet to cook on the campfire.

Lovely secluded wagon in the middle of the woods - we loved making our own fire, cooking under the stars and getting away from it all for the weekend. Lovely owners and dog too! Would recommend bring wellies if autumn/ winter!
