Plush Tents is a yurt village nestled in a beautiful woodland copse designed for pure escapism. Whether you want to enjoy the multitude of social spaces or have a little bit of privacy in your own hammock, from the point that your friends and family park their cars and walk through our welcome arch they will be drawn into the tranquil, calm atmosphere. We welcome guests of all ages and love to hear the laughter of children running free down the paths, splashing in the hot tub or playing in our natural play area. For newcomers to glamping, we have just the right level of luxury such as Egyptian cotton bedding, hot showers and comfy sofas by the stove to keep everyone happy and contented.
Nestled in the woodland copse you will find a multitude of beautiful spots to hold your ceremony. Every couple is so different and we love how creatively our space has been used. From Home Yurt with its capacity for 120 people, to the bandstand, willow arch and the copse of trees. Each has its own unique charm and is ready to be used for the most special moment of your life. Owners Makka and Louise met and then married here at Plush Tents whilst Josy our marketing manager liked it so much that after her wedding she came looking for a job! True love really is found in our little piece of paradise.
For those looking for more space we have the field adjacent available to hire for marquees, games and extra camping.

The communal areas
Our whole beautifully landscaped site is yours to decorate as you wish for the weekend. We have seen couples keep things simple and make use of the decoration already in place as well as create vintage picnics, full psychedelic installations and 60’s style festivals. Home yurt is the hub of Plush Tents with its sumptuous chesterfield sofas, cinema projector, sound system and roaring fire. It leads to a covered area outside so whatever the weather you can host your guests for your reception. We can host up to 100 standing. It also makes a beautiful place to get married. The wood fired hot tub, z line of hammocks and chill out teepee are a great place to unwind the day before and after your ceremony. Let the kids run free around the site, which has been designed with them in mind, and explore our natural play area. Our new addition is the tree house mess tent which houses gas hobs, 2 ovens, a sink for washing up and an ice fuelled cool box for keeping drinks and food cool. We encourage you to congregate around the communal evening bonfire to toast the bride and groom whilst watching the sun go down.
Toilets and showers
Our heated, cosy shower and toilet block contains 4 reliably hot, gas-powered showers (2 for men and 2 for women). There are two types of toilets on the campsite: flushing toilets (3 Ladies, 2 mens & 2 urinals) and composting toilets (1 ladies, 1 mens) which are an experience which must be tried to feel truly at one with nature. Speak to our staff for instructions of how to use them. Additional toilets can be hired if you have a large number of guests attending your event.
We have a wide range of caterers that we can recommend to you from street food vans to hog roasts or fine dining. We have a bring your own policy with alcohol and can provide you with staff to serve your drinks for an extra cost. As we predominantly run on solar power and rechargeable batteries you may need to hire a generator to provide enough power for your suppliers.
We love music and there is nothing better than hearing a great band play on our bandstand. We are off grid and are focused towards a more chilled vibe than other places with respect for our neighbours both human and from the animal kingdom. Whilst we can’t have a disco going on until 2am we can recommend some amazing alternatives which are sure to get your guests in the mood for dancing.
There is plentiful parking on site and we are accessible for whatever magical vehicle the bride chooses to arrive in. We close the gate at night and don’t accept cars after 11pm to keep the site quiet and safe. Parking is on grass so appropriate footwear is advisable. Chichester train station is 4 miles away and there are numerous taxi hires that can bring your guests to and from the site.
We are an Eco friendly site and endeavour to reduce waste and limit our use of toxic products wherever possible. We would love to encourage you to join us in our quest by limiting the amount of waste you bring to the site, using recycling points where possible and being aware of the impact of things like plastic, cigarette butts and chemicals. We provide each guest with a Kilner Jar and plenty of drinking water for throughout your stay. Feel free to chat to us about alternatives that we recommend and have a look at our blog post on reducing plastic waste.
