Anita and Stuart both turn 40 this year… We know. Can’t be possible. Don’t look a day over 30. Etc. etc.

Well, it’s true. And to mark this milestone, we’re having a relaxed family camping weekend with some of our close friends. That’s you! Thank you for joining us – we’re really happy you’re up for coming and celebrating with us.

This page is just an easy place for us to share helpful information about the weekend. We’ll update it with more info in due course.

Practical Stuff

WHEN: Friday 5th – Sunday 7th August (2 nights)
WHERE: Wilderness Wood, Hadlow Down, East Sussex, TN22 4HJ

About Wilderness Woods


We have booked exclusive use of the Lower Paddock. A nice, secluded field with a fire pit & grill.


There are compost loos and an amazing wood fired bath house which we can use.

Food & Drink

We’re going to organise a meal for everyone, including kids, on the Saturday night. Probably pizza as there is a great wood fired pizza oven we can use.

The rest of the weekend, you’ll need to fend for yourselves… But there is a little cafe which is open during the day which sells hot drinks and cakes.

If people are keen, we can arrange a communal barbecue for one or some of the meals…

Other Stuff…

That’s kind of the extent of the plans at the moment!

We’ll have a big campfire both nights. Bring a musical instrument if you like. There’s space to bring outdoor games too. The woods are lovely to explore and there are trails and the big swing, plus a small playground.

Timings for when we’re allowed to arrive on the Friday and when we have to leave on the Sunday to be confirmed…
