Spacious bell tent

General

  • Small rural glamping site 10 minutes' drive from Uckfield
  • A 15-minute drive from the South Downs and 40 minutes from Brighton
  • Hot tub, kingsize bed, woodburning stove and fresh eggs for breakfast

If you’re pining for a stylish getaway surrounded by the gorgeous coast and countryside of Sussex, look no further than Hadlow Hideaways. This smart East Sussex glamping site is in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 10 minutes’ drive from Uckfield and a half-hour drive from the south coast.

There’s plenty of space to make yourself at home in the fully-furnished bell tent, which is kitted out with a kingsize bed for comfy sleeps, a woodburning stove, tea and coffee supplies for your morning caffeine fix, and games to play on cosy evenings in. Outside you’re in for a real treat, courtesy of the woodfired hot tub, and there’s plenty of space for barbecues when alfresco dining calls. A private shower and compost toilet are provided too.

Resident on site all year round is a collection of small farm animals, including friendly pigs and a flock of chickens; you’re welcome to get in among them to forage for eggs for breakfast. For meals and drinks later in the day, there’s a country pub 25 minutes’ amble down the lane with great food and local ales.

For walks beyond the pub there are many trails in the surrounds of the High Weald, and more around 15 minutes’ drive away in the South Downs National Park. Just think, that tub is waiting back at base to sooth any aches and pains after a day well spent exploring… bliss.

    Everything ! Natalie and Connor have thought of everything you could need for a few nights away. The attention to detail goes above and beyond from the welcome pack which included some divine rhubarb gin to the telescope provided to watch the stars. A true gem of a place . We didn’t want to come home!!!

    Hadlow Hideaways is in a fantastic location so peaceful and relaxing with no neighbours to interfere with your experience, the amenities were 5 star, Connor and Nat were amazing hosts, nothing was too much trouble, they even came and collected our girls (ages 5, 7 and 9) to feed the pigs and collect the eggs from the chickens, the breakfast basket is a must, the produce is such good quality. The hot tub was definitely the girls favourite, we feel we have found a little gem and a small piece of heaven and are coming back, I don't think this luxury camping experience could be beaten elsewhere and great value for money, thank you for what our party agreed was the best holiday EVER 😍

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike but maybe a suggestion of a table outside for dinning

    We had a wonderful time staying at Heron house. The tent was so well kitted out with everything you would need including lovely bedding, lamps, cutlery, glasses. The hot tub was a huge hit as well as the kids trip to feed the pigs and the books/games and toys in the toy box. My husband and I loved the well thought out welcome basket and the views from the tent were beautiful. Connor was so welcoming and was just a phonecall away if needed. We would definitely love to come back.

    The beautiful decor and cleanliness of the tent. All of the thoughtful finishing touches from the children’s books to lovely dressing gowns really made us feel welcome and relaxed. The kids enjoyed charging around the field while we cooked the bbq and then had a dip in the hot tub.

    A tent big enough for a family of 6!
    The location of this tent was fabulous - the sole tent at the top of a field with an amazing outlook across the valley. Waking up to see deer in the field, a heron perched nearby, and kestrels, a plus for nature lovers.
    Being on a decking platform meant a level bed and minimal muddy feet. The toilet/shower cubicle and kitchen being upon this decking too, neighbouring the tent was immensely convenient.
    The hot tub was great fun (but do give a good few hours to heat up). Once warm it keeps its heat until the next day for a morning dip - a real luxury directly next to your tent.
    Nat and Connor are so welcoming and helpful. Little touches like a welcome hamper with homemade goodies and treats make a huge difference. Also, games, toys and books for the kids means next time we visit we don't need to bring entertainment. Any extras needed were only an ask away.
    Feeding the pigs and collecting eggs was another highlight for us all.
    We totally loved our stay and plan to return to Heron House (the name of our tent).

Local attractions

The market town of Lewes (a 20-minute drive) is brimming with historical buildings, including the 16th-century Monk's House, Anne of Cleves Tudor House, the medieval Lewes Castle and Barbican House Museum, which houses an archaeological collection.

For some animal encounters, you can walk llamas at The Llama Park (20 minutes) or meet a whole host of animals at Drusillas Park (25 minutes), where there’s also soft play, water play and mazes for energetic kids. For something a bit more relaxed, be on the lookout for wildlife, such as butterflies, buzzards and skylarks, while you stroll around Sheffield Park and Garden (25 minutes).

With the Bluebell Railway (25 minutes), you can explore the Sussex countryside on a steam train, or, if it’s the Sussex coast you’re after, Pevensey Bay beach is half an hour away.

Sticking to the seaside, Brighton (40 minutes) has something for everyone. If you don’t mind getting wet then have a go at some watersports, or stay dry on the pier and opt for arcades, rides and eats instead. You could also mooch around the shops, visit the Sea Life aquarium, or have a good nose around your surroundings on the British Airways i360 observation tower to make a day of it.
