'"THE BELL TENT WAS BEAUTIFUL"  THE TELEGRAPH

GLAMPING AT CHAFFORD PARK ESTATE, SUSSEX

Staycation weekends - glamp camp with us this summer and stay in one of our spacious bell tents, perfect for weekend getaways set within beautiful grounds of a charming Country Estate, bordering Sussex & Kent. 

 

Chafford Park Estate  is located just 10 minutes by car from Tunbridge Wells and only 45 minutes by train from London Bridge. Nearby are the picturesque villages of Groombridge, Fordcombe and Penshurst, with the historic Hever Castle, just 15 minutes from the estate.

 

Groombridge Place, just a 10 minute drive offers an enchanted adventure garden with giant swings, rope ladders and bridges with climbing frames and also, Ashdown Forest , one of largest free public access space in the South East and home to Winnie The Pooh. Local pubs include The Bottle House in Penshurst, The Crown in Groombridge and close by the Chafford Arms.

All our pop up bell tents will be pitched with plenty of space between each tent and facilities include wc, showers and outdoor kitchen areas. There is also an outdoor rustic hand wash station next to the glamping area with cold running water + soap.  We can cater for families, dogs (one per tent) and group bookings (only within the glamping part of the campsite). We have approximately 16 bell tents available each weekend throughout the summer and there is more than enough room within the camping meadows with beautiful rural countryside views. Please read to see what is included in each tent, to make sure that they meet your requirements for family camping. If you are a group of friends/family who would like to glamp together in bell tents nearby, just let us know and we can make sure that your bell tents are next to each other or opposite - subject to availability.  We cannot however, place you together if you are a mixture of glamping or non-glamping families, as the general campsite pitches are located around the perimeter of the field, separate to the glamping area.

"Setting is just gorgeous, full of wildlife, quiet and next to some great woods for the kids to play in. Lots of lovely walks nearby too." Helene 

Chafford Park, so easy to get to it warrants the experience even if you only have a couple of days to spend there. Yet it feels like a proper escape. The owner strikes the perfect balance of the excellent host – friendly and helpful but never interfering. The woods are magical for kids, precluding the need to entertain them, so that you can sit back with a glass of something cool and just relax.” Claire 

"The site has lots of space and great facilities! Lovely scenery and walks nearby in the beautiful Kent countryside."  Charlotte
