Swallowtail Hill is a small East Sussex farm, which has now become a beacon for bio-diversity and is used as a demonstration site to show exactly what a landscape can become if managed for conservation – wild flower meadows, hedgerows bursting with life, ponds and reed beds, coppice woodland – all managed traditionally.
Swallowtail Hill offers a beautiful setting in which to spend a deeply relaxing holiday safe in the knowledge that its impact on the environment will be absolutely minimal.
We have two cosy wooden cabins and two quirky cottages-on-wheels which are our own rather eccentric designs – you won’t find anything similar around. Each of our units sleeps up to four people (one double bed and two singles).
Each pitch has its own fire pit so you can enjoy a traditional campfire. We provide a kit box with all the necessary equipment you need to cook and cater for yourselves.
Each pitch is furnished simply but comfortably and wherever possible everything we supply is sustainable and kind to the planet.
We supply pillows, sheets, duvets, covers, blankets and towels.
The two wood cabins share a compost loo and gas fired outdoor shower. The cottages-on-wheels each have their own compost loo and outdoor wood-burning shower.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
