Best campsites for the High Weald AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The rural landscape of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty was largely shaped during medieval times and whose character lingers to this day. It’s a terrain of rolling hills, occasionally broken by sandstone outcrops, dotted with relatively small fields, farms and ancient roads and lanes, often sunken with time. Stretching from Tonbridge and East Grinstead down to the coast at Hastings, this is 1,461 square kilometres of unspoilt countryside, despite being in the heart of one of England’s most populous regions, the southeast.

The Weald originally took its name from the dense forest, but this has mostly disappeared, leaving huge swathes of ancient broadleaf woods. In fact, the Weald AONB retains 23% of woodland cover, one of the highest in England. Pigs were once grazed under the trees in clearings known as ‘dens’ – a word that still appears in many village names. The landscape is typified by its hung peg tile roofs, white weatherboarding and distinctive oast houses, once used for drying hops.
