Robins Retreat and Woodpecker Hill - Shepherds Hut Glamping in East Sussex
Located in our apple orchard overlooking the gorgeous River Cuckmere are our oak Shepherds Huts, Robins Retreat and Woodpecker Hill, which arrived during June 2023
Perfect for those romantic nights away or simply detox with the peaceful sound of birds and the wind through the trees, or relax in the wood fired hot tub (for Robins Retreat).
Pet/Dog Friendly Accommodation
Both our cabins and shepherds huts are dog friendly… (or pet friendly as we have had cats and a rabbit stay too!)
The area is ideal for doggy holidays…with walks from the door and plenty of dog friendly places to eat and drink in the area…
Treetent + Hammock... Sleep under the stars!
The tree tent season is April to September, with your opportunity to experience our tree tent and hammock within the woods. We are offering this to guests who book the cabin(s) as an additional opportunity to feel immersed in nature, listen to the birds singing, lift your feet off the ground and feel the wind between your toes.
The tree tent sleeps up to 3 people (no pets) and facilities of the cabin will be shared giving you the opportunity to make your stay more special with friends and family, or stay with children for a unique experience in nature. The tree tent should be used by those over age 5 years and children must always be accompanied by an adult.
Bring your sleeping bag, pillow and towels to snuggle up with nature under the stars in the tree tent. The list of reasons are endless – and be sure to make a wish if you see a shooting star!!
Holidays in East Sussex
Located just a short drive to the seaside and magnificent Seven Sisters, Friston Forest, Brighton, Lewes, Eastbourne & Royal Tunbridge Wells. The South Downs National Park is such a unique and special place for wildlife and people looking to have a break away from London too!
The South Downs has something for every kind of cyclist and walker to enjoy and explore.
Badgers Rest and Foxes Hollow are designed by a local award winning architect. From moving to Alfriston in 2018, after many months of planning, five storms and the Coronavirus outbreak our plans and dreams became a reality in July 2020 when the two oak framed woodland cabins could finally open.
We built the beautiful cabins on the footprint of an old forest school and summer house which had become dilapidated. Always having a dream of living in a safe environment our son, surrounded by nature.
Subsequently Robins Retreat arrived in August 2022, the first of three Shepherds Hut within our orchard rather than in the woods, with views over the Cuckmere Valley. The second Hut, Woodpecker Hill, arrived during June 2023
Within this dream, sharing the beautiful scenery of the South Downs National Park, enhancing wildlife, creating long lasting memories for guests, growing vegetables, keeping farm animals, and living off the land. All of this and much, much more!
To become a carbon neutral business is also a vision to help retain and restore the world we live in, and our journey is now well underway.
We hope to see you soon xx
