26 May 2020; Our campsites and booking system are now open. Please note we can only book up to 6 people at a time (due to Social Distancing rules).

Those who want to camp with more than six people will have to book a series of single 6 man pitches and mention the name of the sharing party under “special requirements” If social distancing rules allow, we can make sure your pitches are all nearby.

We will honour any existing bookings for a future date in 2020, once we have a proper timeline.

Please email if you have any urgent queries.

The Covid Challenge

  • Yamp Camps are well known for their spacious camping pitches and the large gaps between campers, so we are already perfectly set up to meet social distancing (SD) guidelines.
  • However, to further minimise risk & while (SD) rules prevail, we are substantially reducing the number of campers we allow on site.

Minimising Risk

  • The risk of cross-infection is already regarded as “negligible” in the open air but there are concerns about shared, enclosed spaces – particularly bathrooms.
  • Well, we have the solution! All our pitches come with your own exclusive loo, for your sole use, for the duration of your stay! Welcome to “Super-safe” Bubble Camping Yamp Camp style! – Simples!

Bubble Camping

  • So, our bubble pitches include a loo for you and your family’s exclusive use!
  • They include a fire-pit so you can enjoy a campfire  every night of your stay
  • And every pitch has masses of space so that you can isolate in comfort with guaranteed privacy

Camping with Freinds

  • While (SD) rules are in place, we can only accept single pitch bookings. There can be no exceptions!
  • But, When (SD) rules allow, we will happily place you near any freinds that might also have booked
  • A real solution may be our new (and we think) utterly brilliant flexi-bubbles (see below)


  • Flexi-bubbles are still a bubble pitch, but it carries the option to increase the size of your booking, so you can invite others to camp with you – as & when rules allow.
  • That may be when camping space is in short supply, so it future-proofs your needs, but you only pay for others, when you know they can come! Flexi-Bubble Camping, Yamp Camp Style – Simples!

Double Bubbles

  • If (SD) rules allow, we may also offer the chance to “double your bubble!”
  • That would be two families, sharing one loo, with their pitch on either side of a firepit.

  • You could share the fire and maintain (SD) by using the fire as an easily identifiable “front line”, with a 1 metre no-man’s land on either side.

    Nothing is allowed at the moment, but watch this space!

Brilliant Locations

  • In easy reach of London & The South Coast
  • Set deep in beautiful Sussex countryside
  • With the BEST camping weather in the UK!

Lovely Campsites

  • Your own campfire on every spacious pitch
  • SD rules means that people need to stay on individual pitches and they cannot join up with others
  • There will be clean running water and plenty of open air washing points, but our showers may have to remain closed.

Campsite Fun

  • Plenty of room to play games & have fun
  • Rope swings are not available, but there are still dens & woody bits to explore
  • Lots of sights & activities in the local area

A Great Experience

  • A back-to-basics camping adventure where memories are made
  • Satisfyingly off grid for that authentic camping experience
  • A friendly & safe environment for budding explorers

Our Promise

  • Visitor numbers are strictly limited to avoid overcrowding
  • We pre-allocate pitches so that a place is reserved especially for you
  • Lots of space between pitches means privacy is assured
