Forgewood Camping

The Eridge Park Estate

For those who haven't visited yet, Forgewood is an ancient woodland situated in the High Weald on the Eridge Park Estate. 
The Estate itself was created by William the Conqueror when he gave the land to his brother Odo. The Nevill family inherited the estate in 1448. It is the current Marquess of Abergavenny who in partnership with us, is offering camping on the Estate.


Camping at ForgeWood is about getting back to nature and enjoying camping the old way. There are no Caravans or electrical hookups, just the basics needed to make it a real break from the technocrazy world we live in. You make your own space, light your own fire, build your own shelters and give your kids the chance to run free in the woods.

We  have pitches in the woods or on the field. There is plenty of space and its up to you how far you want to go. If you walk a little further you get to find your own special space.
