If you are not busy enough setting up camp and managing your fire, the Eridge Park Estate offers the perfect environment to roam and explore. While your kids will be happiest hanging out in the woods around the campsite, you may like to walk a little further to find the Caves, the follies and the Saxon fort. Let's not exaggerate because this is not a theme park, but the Estate has plenty of natural and architectural history.
For 2014 in addition to Bushcraft we are offering Wood Wise and Art classes, with occasional Drumming circles and other fun things to do. Please click on the relevant tab
The Eridge Estate is criss-crossed with numerous
carriageways, linking the campsite to the Tunbridge Wells Circular Path and the
Sussex Border Path. Our visitors can use the carriageways to go on a short
circular walk, about an hour which takes you past the caves and Chalybeate
Springs, or a longer 3 hour walk around
the perimeter of the Estate. At Frant you can visit the George Pub and enjoy a
meal or drink before returning to the campsite past the lakes.
The campsite sits in a 100 acre wood which provides a unique playground for our younger visitors. We do not have any rides or formal entertainment. But our experience has been that anyone who thinks of themselves as a child will be happily entertained for days on end.
