Not necessarily a unique concept, but another welcome addition to a growing trend towards experiential camping in the UK. Based on the South Downs, and moving location every month to avoid planning laws (a permanent camp needs all sorts of permissions), Dan and Chelsea, the owners, have created a great weekend escape where you can forage for berries, nuts, mushrooms and other goodies with their professional guides, as well as hunt with peregrine falcons, spot rare downland orchids, search for nightingales, fossil hunt and have a go at bronze age archeology. Canoeing, paragliding and horse riding are nearby.

The elegant camping arrangements are in bell-tents with a sumptuous central yurt for communal dining.
