Burning Heart River Camp

IN SHORT – For prices and booking please use booking form below. Now available for bespoke celebrations, baby naming and weddings.

“It will take your breath away and leave your heart on a plate.”

Set in it’s own magical four acre water meadow known as The Loiter-Pin field, we have a fully lined 16ft yurt available for your very own private hire. The yurt is sumptuously decorated with a comfy kingsize bed and kept warm on the cooler summer evenings with a cozy wood burner. The camp is fully kitted out with an under cover kitchen area, outside fire pit, the Rum Baaba (land only) Boat, hot shower and compost toilet.
Electricity is available via a silent suitcase generator upon request. The yurt is right beside the river with a jetty for you to lounge around on in the sun. If you fancy a swim the river water is clean due to the whole of Hooe level being under conservation. This amazing camp is ideal for couples for a romantic weekend, a humble fishing trip, for the true nature lover looking to find some rare gems in the surrounding flora and fauna, or just simply to take time out and relax.

Local Stuff

The Lamb Inn at Wartling  –  This award winning pub is a short’ish walk up a beautiful single track road called the Horse Walk. They serve delicious food and beverages.

Watch the kingfishers and barn owls fly by as you cook yourselves up some fresh fish on the bbq and sit by the fire under the stars while you eat it … What could be better?

Lovely!

A group of families, friends and children, we celebrated a pals 50th birthday on 13-15 July 2018 at the Burning Heart River Camp. It was fantastic! The site is natural and beautiful and the camp is really well equipped. We swam and canoed in the river, walked to the local pub at Wartling for lunch, barbecued delicious lamb from the farm for dinner and then stayed up around the camp fire till the early hours. The kids loved being able to roam safely and playing on the boat and digger and hay bails and the adults particularly enjoyed the funky bar! Thanks a lot Pete and Claire - we'll be back!

Thank you Andrej, you guys were really lovely guests too. So back at ya! See you again then! Pete and Claire

Family Camping

We wanted to take our boys for a camping holiday but also wanted privacy and to feel away from it all whilst still having some comforts like a hot shower etc.We were not disappointed with our choice in Burning Heart River Camp.We arrived on an extremely wet and windy summer day and Claire and Pete had kindly lit the wood burner in the yurt for us for our arrival, we can assure you the yurt is lovely and cosy and dry. The bed is lovey and comfortable and our sons thought the sofa bed was super cosy as well.The boys loved running around and exploring the field and all the interesting things on display, especially the boat and the digger!We cooked our meals in the outdoor kitchen, whilst rustic, it’s also charming and we had everything we needed and we loved sitting at the bar on the first night with a glass of wine watching the rain coming and going over fields and watching all the solar fairy lights around the camp come on when it got dark.We also enjoyed eating by the river and around the campfire, and enjoyed having our outdoor hot showers and the boys loved having an outdoor bath!The camps location on the river is beautiful as are the sunsets you can watch from the jetty, would recommend it for a lovey back to nature relaxing family break.

What a lovely review Diana, thank you so much. So glad you loved it like we do! Hopefully see you again, Pete and Claire

Just wow!

Just got back from spending my birthday weekend in the yurt, this place is my new favourite place in England! Such a friendly welcome and a truly beautiful place. The river is gorgeous to swim in and the sunsets are to die for. If it's back to nature and complete seclusion you're after then I haven't found anywhere better. Book it, just book it. You won't be disappointed (just keep it to yourself).

Paradise in the countryside

My wife and I stayed for two nights and two days at The Burning Heart River Camp. We felt like we were stars in a romantic film the whole time. The scenery is stunningly cinematic, the Yurt is warm and comfortable and the camp has everything we needed, from an outside bath, to rock 'n roll bar! We loved diving off the jetti into the river and sitting under the stars by the fire at night. We honestly felt like we were in paradise and didn't want to leave. This is a completely private, well maintained and beautiful location. If you are looking for the most inspiring, uplifting and relaxing place to stay, this is it!
