  • Spacious glamping site with sea views, two miles from central Brighton
  • A 20-minute walk from the beach and marina; 45 minutes from the pier
  • Regular buses stop outside for travel to the city and countryside
City, coast, country – create your own combo of all the above with a stay at Brighton Experience Freedom Glamping. The Brighton location you’ll no doubt have twigged from the name, but this site is actually two miles from the city centre, in a peaceful hillside spot with views towards the city and sea and easy access to South Downs trails for a stroll or cycle ride. Eco-friendly Brighton is big on buses, and public transport can get you out to some great spots for a walk – perhaps Devil’s Dyke or the Seven Sisters Cliffs – or drop you off at a country pub for a pie and pint. In fact, this is an all-round fab site for folk travelling by public transport, as much of what you need is provided in your digs and there are plenty of amenities and attractions within walking distance. It’ll take a leisurely 20 minutes or so to stroll to Brighton’s beach and marina from here, or you can flag down a bus to get to central attractions in around the same time. Supermarkets, cafés, restaurants and bars are all within a few minutes’ amble, too, so you can afford to travel light and forage once set up. When not out and about, there’s plenty of space to chill out on site and admire those sea views, while tending a barbie if you wish. Lots of family-friendly touches have been thrown in to make life easy: a playground, a small shop, a wifi connection and a toilet block with baby changing area and accessible facilities.

Glamping microlodge

Liked: The space was great and clean, along with the site and very peaceful. Good size and well equipped. Customer service was exceptional. Small issue with bed sheets resolved in less than 10 minutes and everyone all too happy to help and polite.

Disliked: Hand towels and towels for the bathroom and an extra set of cups and plates. 1 for each individual is a bit limiting. Kitchen towel wasn’t the best for drying.

Glamping microlodge

Liked: The cozy well planned layout of lodge !

Disliked: There was lot of dislikes this time ! Our tv wouldn’t work along with the wifi ! We had gone there to catch up on thing we are too busy for all week and was unable to do this ! When we called staff to fix it , they were unhelpful and rude! Serious lack of customer service ! It was all too much effort for them! They finally came to help and the manager was called as we asked to swap pods! She was very rude on the phone . She was no as all the lodges are taken when we knew for a fact they wasn’t due to no cars and no people to be seen ! We finally got moved after moaning , and then the internet also didn’t work there after about 10minutes. The door wouldn’t close, it was freezing and drafty all the time ! And we couldn’t lock it and felt very unsafe. The fridge froze everything even when on a low number! Not happy atall and would like to try and get money back!

Disliked: Kitchenette was a bit cramped for making main meals, but that was expected. A little bit of mild wear and tear evident to pods, but generally seemed well looked after.

Local attractions

Buzzy Brighton is bursting with things to keep you busy for many a day. You’ll want to start with the beach, of course – wander down there in 20 minutes or so, then board Volk’s Electric Railway (the oldest of its kind in the country, no less) for a seafront ride to the city centre. Spending some time in the centre might involve poking about in the independent shops of The Lanes area, marvelling at the ornate Royal Pavilion or seeing what’s swimming at the Sea Life Centre. Those with a head for heights can see it all from 162 metres above by taking a trip to the top of the British Airways i360 Tower. Country escapades are just as easy hereabouts – the national cycle routes 2 and 20 start near the site, and buses can pick you up for valley walks at Devil’s Dyke (25 minutes’ drive) or to check out the chalk cliffs at Seven Sisters Country Park (35 minutes). If the weather threatens to dampen your days, walk down to Brighton Marina in 20 minutes for films, bowling and glow-in-the-dark golf.
