Price per night: From £135 for 2 people

If you like minimal, rustic and chic interiors, then you’ll love Copse Cabin. Because, let’s be honest, sometimes simplicity is best!

Totally secluded in green woodland, in the midst of a countryside farm, this cute little cabin combines the wild beauty of nature with all the creature comforts of home.

A personal favourite highlight of the cabin is its large windows that maximise the views and bring the outside in.

Expect to find little treats such as organic toiletries and a fridge filled with delicious local breakfast provisions too!

2. The Buzzardry Treehouse

Price per night: From £230 for 4 people

Location: Rushlake Green, Heathfield

Who doesn’t love a treehouse, right?

You’re lying if you say you’ve never wanted to stay in a treehouse before, especially one that you access via a spiral staircase!

As seen in The Times, The Buzzardry is one of my favourite places to go glamping in Sussex.

There’s so much to love about this place, from the freestanding copper bath to the expansive decking to the roaring log burner.

And with electricity, underfloor heating, and a super kingsized bed, you definitely won’t be camping here!

What guests say: “This place is popular for good reason. We love staying in treehouses. The only downside of this one is that others might be disappointing. This place is beautifully designed, built and finished and is a joy to be in. Even in the pouring rain, it was lovely! Amenities are perfect and all in great condition.”

3. Jessie Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Sedlescombe, Whatlington

Follow a meandering path through the crab apple and cherry trees and soon you’ll stumble upon Jessie Shepherds Hut.

Set in a tranquil oasis of flourishing farmland and pockets of hidden wilderness, nature really is at its best here.

And inside, the shepherd’s hut is just as special.

The surprisingly spacious romantic accommodation for two houses a double bed, fully-equipped kitchen, log burner and ensuite bathroom.

What guests say: “Jessie is the perfect place if you want a cosy couple of days away from it all with stunning views and all the home comforts you need. Sue has done an amazing job with the space and has made Jessie incredibly comfortable. Even though the weather wasn’t great, it was lovely and cosy watching the rain come down over the fields. We can’t wait to come back.”

4. The Hide Out

tall-black-the-hide-out-cabin-on-decking-in-forest

Price per night: From £105 for 2 people

Location: Cock Marling, Winchelsea

The Hide Out is easily one of the most unique cabins I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

And not only is it unique but it’s also beautiful too!

This self-built shepherds hut inspired haven comprises a unique mezzanine sleeping area, a fully-equipped kitchenette, a cosy living space, and a wet room.

However, the best thing about this cabin is the large floor to ceiling glass doors that maximise light and the amazing views.

Whether cosied up inside or relaxing on the decking, you’ll feel at one with nature here.

What guests say: “The Hide Out is a fantastic place to stay, surrounded by beautiful woodland and with a great view looking out over fields to the sea at Rye. It has all you need for a comfortable few days, with a bed from which you look out through the woods, cosy living room area with gorgeous sofa and armchair, excellent shower room and good cooking facilities. There are two comfortable terraces from which to enjoy the forest and the views.”

5. The Hut

Price per night: From £99 for 4 people

Location: Cock Marling, Winchelsea

Set in the same idyllic woodland as The Hide Out, The Hut is another totally unique cabin that is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

And luckily, it also benefits from amazing views.

Set in the lambing field, one of the farm’s most iconic spots with incredible views out onto the coast, you won’t be able to get enough of your surroundings.

And inside, the hut is beautifully decorated in calming shades of blue and grey that will take you far away from your worries!

What guests say: “We came upon the hut which looked amazing and we noticed a small clearing with chairs and a fire pit and views to die for with the glint of the sea in the distance. The hut itself is surrounded by decking, a table, chairs to sit on and admire the glorious views. The wood has a few dens for children to complete and play in, a wood to explore and a hammock to daydream in.” 

6. de Etchyngham Geodome

Price per night: From £93 for 2 people

Location: Robertsbridge, Mountfield

If you’re looking for an extra unique place to go glamping in Sussex, then look no further than de Etchyngham Geodome.

An intimate and special getaway for couples that overlooks 20 acres of barley and wildflowers, this glamping dome is the perfect place to disconnect and get back to nature.

It’s beautifully decorated with 70s-inspired furnishings, and comprises a double bed, sofa, seating area and gas stove, with loos and showers outside.

What guests say: “Wow! What a fantastic location. We really enjoyed our time going off-grid and living in the woods, albeit with some little luxuries! The geodome accommodation is very nice and comfortable and the cooking area outside offers a great range of facilities. The location made us feel like we were the only people there and we absolutely loved watching the local wildlife from the decked area.”

7. Bodichon Yurt

interior-of-bodichon-yurt-with-bed-at-glottenham-castle-glamping-sussex

Price per night: From £90 for 5 people

Location: Robertsbridge, Mountfield

Set on the same gorgeous site as de Etchyngham, Bodichon Yurt is just as special.

It’s positioned at the top of a wildflower meadow, so a stay here is worth it for the unspoilt views of the rolling Sussex hills alone. Sunset drinks, anyone?

Luckily, the inside of the yurt is just as beautiful.

Shabby chic meets French style in this spacious yurt that comprises a double bed, single bed, and a gas stove to cosy up to in the evening.

What guests say: “A very relaxing location with great views, including watching deers walking lazily across the field in front of us. Also watching the birds in the trees above your head while in the shower is not something you get to do every day.”

8. Rossetti Cabin

Price per night: From £100 for 5 people

Location: Robertsbridge, Mountfield

If the geodome and yurt weren’t enough for accommodation options at Glottenham, there’s also a cabin to stay in!

Named after the Pre-Raphaelite poet Christina, who wrote about her stay at Glottenham in the 1880s, this quirky cabin is packed full of history.

It’s also appropriately decorated in the eccentric style of this Victorian movement with everything from original antique rugs and furniture to hand-embroidered linen sheets.

And in the centre of the cabin stands a tree trunk to bring you even closer to nature too!

What guests say: “It was so peaceful in the forest with only nature to listen to… my idea of heaven! Rossetti had everything you needed, all the cooking facilities were fantastic, the room was comfy and homely and loved showering under the trees! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back.”

9. Bensfield Treehouse

rope-bridge-leading-to-bensfield-treehouse-in-woodland-glamping-sussex

Price per night: From £179 for 2 people

Location: Beech Hill, Wadhurst

If there’s one thing Sussex does well it’s treehouses. And Bensfield Treehouse really is the stuff of childhood fantasy!

With a magical 24-metre rope bridge that leads you across a pond to access the treehouse, you really will feel away from the rest of the world here.

Inside you’ll find a kingsize bed, central heating, an ensuite shower room, leather sofa, TV with Netflix, kitchen and more.

However, my two personal favourite highlights are the private sundeck with an outdoor bath, and the breakfast hamper that is filled with everything you could possibly need and more to cook up an amazing full English.

What guests say: “The treehouse is an absolutely amazing place to stay. We had high expectations but they were exceeded in every way. The owners have thought of everything and the addition of the 5-star BBQ was the final perfect touch. Hamper was phenomenal! Thank you – hope to be back soon.”

10. The Long View Shepherds Hut

the-long-view-shepherds-hut-in-field-at-swallowtail-hill-glamping-sussex

Price per night: From £145 for 2 people

Location: Four Oaks, Beckley

The Long View Shepherds Hut has to be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Sussex.

Because let’s be honest, you don’t come across shepherds huts as amazing as this one any old day of the week.

The highlight of the hut is the floor to ceiling door and windows that maximise the views across the gorgeous eight-acre wildflower meadow.

And you can enjoy these views from the comfort of your bed.

Oh, wait, another highlight is the wood-fired hot tub.

Oh and the glampsite chef who can cook up delicious feasts for you.

There’s just way too much to love about this hut!

What guests say: “We greatly enjoyed our stay at The Long View – an idyllic location and a genuine retreat from the world’s noise; a real taste of off-grid living. From the stunning views to the comfortable bed to the woodfired hot tub, it was a hugely relaxing stay and a real break away! Sarah was a fantastic host who looked after us carefully and made sure that every part of the experience was exactly as described.”

11. Woodcutter’s Cottage

Price per night: From £120 for 4 people

Location: Four Oaks, Beckley

Hidden away in an eight-acre chestnut and oak coppiced woodland, the timber-clad Woodcutter’s Cottage looks like it was taken straight out of a fairytale.

So whether you’ve got kids or you’re a big kid at heart, you’ll love an escape to this tiny cottage.

Accommodating up to a family of four, you can make this a family break or a romantic escape for two.

Plus, when the cottage is complete with a log burner, electric lighting, and a mini kitchen with a mini-fridge, you can enjoy being close to nature without compromising on any luxuries!

What guests say: “My nieces and I had a wonderful stay at Woodcutters! The property is perfect for getting away from the world for a few days, and getting back to nature. The owners have done an amazing job at creating a beautiful space that allows you to live off-grid, but with a couple of creature comforts. The kids loved toasting marshmallows and on the fire pit every night and endlessly played in the woodland.”

12. Wood and Penfold Cabins

penfold-cabin-in-field-at-swallowtail-hill

Price per night: From £105 for 4 people

Location: Four Oaks, Beckley

If Woodcutters Cottage didn’t take your fancy, then maybe Wood or Penfold will!

These two identical timber cabins share a pretty paddock in the heart of Swallowtail Hill’s farm but are far enough apart for you to enjoy your own privacy.

Outside, each cabin has its own firepit equipped with a BonFire cooking kit, as well as an outdoor seating area for you to dine alfresco.

There’s also no electricity inside the cabins which makes for a very off-grid experience.

If you want to seriously switch off from modern life, then this is the one of the best glamping sites in Sussex to do it.

What guests say: “We had a brilliant time – the cabins were so secluded and in a beautiful spot. Lots of thought has obviously been put into these cabins, and they are very comfortable and well-equipped while still keeping the back to basics vibe! We stayed with family across both cabins, and it was perfect for this, sharing campfires, games and cooking in the field they share. Kids (and adults!) loved exploring the woods, and meeting all the animals.”

13. The Sussex Roundhouse

Price per night: From £145 for 2 people

Location: Four Oaks, Beckley

Last but absolutely by no means least, Swallowtail Hill Farm is also home to The Roundhouse, one of my favourite places to go glamping in Sussex.

Hidden away in one of the most remote corners of the farm under a tall oak tree, just reaching The Roundhouse is an adventure in itself.

Turn off the track, cross the rustic bridge, unlatch the gate and wander deep into the wood. However, despite being hidden away, The Roundhouse is far from rustic.

If you’re looking for one of the most luxurious glamping holidays in Sussex, that’s exactly what you’ll find here.

From modern stylish interiors to a wood-fired hot tub, it feels more like a luxury hotel room than a cabin.

What guests say: “The roundhouse is beautifully designed and spotlessly clean. The area is beautiful and peaceful – perfect for shutting off from the outside world and having a good relax. Everything has been carefully thought out and the essentials all provided. We even received a leaving gift containing a postcard, homemade fudge and jam made on the farm – a really lovely, thoughtful touch.” 

14. The Harbour Hut 

the-harbour-hut-living-area-with-balcony-overlooking-harbour

Price per night: From £110 for 3 people

Location: Brighton Marina, Brighton

For one of the most unique places to go glamping in Sussex, book a stay in The Harbour Hut.

Amazing sea view sunsets? Check. A gin bar? Check.

Beautiful interiors and the opportunity to explore one of the UK’s best seaside cities? Check and check.

There really isn’t much not to love about The Harbour Hut.

Inside you’ll find a mezzanine bedroom, an open plan living room with Smart TV, a kitchen and dining space, and a modern shower room.

But let’s be honest, the real party happens as soon as you step out onto the glorious, private outdoor sun deck with deck chairs!

What guests say: “Wow! WHAT A FIND! Having visited Brighton many times previously for both work purposes and pleasure. I think we have found our favourite little place to stay forevermore! The beautiful and stylishly furnished Harbour Hut is a hidden gem we are so glad we’ve found, with its excellent amenities, relaxing waterside location and quirky little touches it definitely won’t disappoint. The bed was luxuriously comfortable and gave us the best nights sleep ever (fuelled by the complimentary gin bar!).”

15. The Raft 

teal-and-gold-kitchen-of-the-raft-houseboat

Price per night: From £89 for 2 people

Location: Shoreham-by-Sea

In a similar vein to The Harbour Hut, we have The Raft.

This beautifully decorated floating home is seriously easy on the eyes.

Set in a vibrant houseboat community, the handcrafted space is full of character and charm, while still packing in all the comforts of a modern house.

From the curve of the roof to the hand-hammered brass door handles, the attention to detail here is also something special.

And the cherry on top of an already very tasty cake is the large floor-to-ceiling windows that maximise the views of the estuary.

What guests say: “The Raft is moored among eclectic houseboats on the River Adur, giving the feel of a quiet quarter in Amsterdam. Inside, it has the warm ambience of a mellow bohemian cafe. While we were there, the tide was at its highest annually, and we watched the water come in peacefully yet swiftly. Behind us, the ocean! We swam in the bracing sea. All in all, an ideal little getaway from the city. We were impressed by the green roof with its friendly succulents, and the dangling, healthy, calming plantlife inside.”

16. Mill Laine Farm Shepherds Huts

exterior-of-mill-laine-farm-shepherds-hut-with-hot-tub-in-field-glamping-sussex

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Offham, South Malling

Set in a lovely grass field at the foot of the Southdowns you’ll find Mill Laine Farm Shepherds Huts.

These two beautifully designed huts come complete with a private bathroom, kitchenette and wood-fired hot tub.

They’re so self-contained that there really is no reason to leave!

And when you can go for lots of hot tub dips with amazing countryside views at sunset, why would you ever want to leave?

What guests say: “A rare find – perfect accommodation for anyone who enjoys the countryside. Its a tastefully decorated shepherds hut with a very comfy bed, shower room (great shower by the way) and basic kitchen area. Amazing walking on the South Downs and along the river to Lewes.”

17. The Big Green Bus

the-big-green-bus-double-decker-on-decking-in-woodland

Price per night: From £195 for 2 people to £395 for 6 people

Location: Holme’s Hill, Hellingly

If it’s good enough for George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces and Four In A Bed, then it’s good enough for me.

If you want to say you’ve slept in a green retro double-decker bus (I mean, who else can say that?) then book a stay on The Big Green Bus.

One of the best places to glamping in Sussex for a big group of people, the 1982 West Midlands metro bus accommodates six people across three bedrooms.

And, with its bright splashes of colour, original bus features, and a hot tub, it looks pretty cool while doing so.

What guests say: “A truly unique setting for what turned out to be a fantastic holiday. From the personal greeting on arrival (accompanied by some delicious chocolate brownies) to the memories only a location like this can bring, I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the Big Green Bus as an ideal holiday location.”

18. Downash Wood Treehouses

Price per night: From £187 for 2 people or £210 for 4 people

Location: Ticehurst, Robertsbridge

I mean, I did say that Sussex is home to some of the UK’s best treehouses, didn’t I?

Downash Wood Treehouses are just yet another fantastic example of amazing treehouses in Sussex.

And with two treehouses to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

Tinkers is a romantic hideaway for couples wanting solitude in an exceptional space, whereas The Oakey Koakey is a large family fun treehouse.

Both benefit from beautifully designed interiors and even better outdoor spaces!

What guests say: “The Oakey Koakey Treehouse is a very special place. Tucked into the woods, secluded and private, it gave us all quality family time without interruptions. The design and quality of the treehouse were thoughtfully done and the finishings and decor were homely and tasteful. The little touches of cookies, coffee and juices were lovely and much appreciated! We all had a fabulous time and would love to return, which we very rarely say!”

19. Coddiwomple Cabin

Price per night: From £165 for 2 people

Location: Ticehurst, Robertsbridge

Coddiwomple Cabin is easily one of the most unusual romantic weekend breaks in the UK.

From the stylish and cosy interiors to the outdoor log-fuelled hot tub, this cabin just screams romance.

One of my favourite things about this space is how light and airy it is, thanks to the large dual aspect bi-folding doors.

Throw them open and let nature in, or head out onto the large sun deck to soak up the sun and watch the sunset.

The kingsize bed with pure cotton bedding and goose feather duvet is another highlight!

Any excuse to cosy up with your partner, right?

What guests say: “We had the most perfect 2-night staycation in Coddiwomple Cabin at Downash Wood. Waking up to the stunning view of the woods is so peaceful and the outdoor hot tub is just dreamy. The beautifully designed cabin has everything covered from underfloor heating, to Bluetooth built in-ceiling speakers to plastic Prosecco flutes for a toast in the tub. I couldn’t fault Coddiwomple Cabin and would 100% recommend it. “

20. Willow the Wisp Cabin

path-leading-to-willow-the-wisp-cabin-at-downash-wood

Price per night: From £145 for 2 people

Location: Ticehurst, Robertsbridge

Set within Downash Wood, along with the last two amazing glamping accommodations in Sussex, you’ll find Willow the Wisp Cabin.

This cabin might be smaller but boy does it still pack a punch.

Firstly, this cute cabin comes complete with an idyllic log fuelled Swedish bathtub, made with long evening soaks in mind.

Secondly, the large sun deck also benefits from a BBQ fire pit – you couldn’t really ask for a better set-up for a summer evening!

Inside, a cosy interior and a bottle of champagne await you.

What guests say: “Our stay at the Willow the Wisp Cabin was excellent from start to finish. The cabin was idyllic with a Swedish bath and log fire than doubled up as a BBQ. Our stay was completely relaxing and we couldn’t hear a peep from the treehouses nearby so we really felt like it was just us and the woods. We also pre-ordered a breakfast hamper from Eggs to Apples which was delicious, fresh, and waiting for us when we arrived.” 

21. Alfriston Shepherds Hut 

exterior-of-shepherds-hut-with-doors-open-and-outdoor-seating

Price per night: From £104 for 2 people

Location: Alfriston, Lullington

Alfriston Shepherds Hut sits within a walled garden in a charming village, and while it’s not quite as remote as some of the other glamping sites in Sussex, it still feels like an escape away from the world.

Open double doors to a cleverly designed space done in a retro style, with plenty of quirky features to discover.

From fine brass plumbing fixtures to an artist’s cheerful stained glass window, the attention to detail here is second-to-none.

What guests say: “We had a lovely relaxing stay. The hut is a very comfortable and cosy spot, a perfect escape from the city. This was so much more than your typical shepherd’s hut, with thoughtful touches such as a stocked fridge, chocolates, fresh warm pastries and a prepared fire pit. Also, a hut with its own bathroom is a huge plus. Can’t wait to come back, Alfriston is gorgeous.” 

22. Walk Wood Wagon

walk-wood-cabin-in-woodland-with-bluebells-glamping-sussex

Price per night: From £150 for 2 people

Location: Sheffield Park, Uckfield

Looking to get closer to nature?

Then you’ll love a stay in Walk Wood Wagon, a wonderfully unique wagon with rich oak cladding and floral wallpaper.

Time your stay right and you’ll find yourself waking up to bluebells, which you can enjoy a view of from your Swedish outdoor bath.

This really is one of the best places to go glamping in Sussex if you’re looking to get back to nature.

It’s safe to say the laid-back pace of campfire or wood-burner cooking will have you feeling a million miles away from the rat race.

Sometimes simplicity is best!

What guests say: “What a truly amazing place to stay! This place is perfectly quaint and quiet and situated away from the owners under a canopy of a small forested area. It’s perfect for an evening away with your best mate catching up and having a good time laughing, or a romantic stay with someone special. Logs and fire-lighters were all provided and made the evening so memorable, firing the outdoor bathtub or the fireplace up for toasted marshmallows and a hot chocolate!”

23. Forest Garden Yurts

interior-of-the-kushti-yurt-in-the-forest-garden

Price per night: From £124 for 2 people or £129 for 4 people

Location: Ashurst Wood, East Grinstead

If you really want to go back in time and get closer to nature then Forest Garden Yurts are one of the best places to go glamping in Sussex for you.

There are two yurts to choose from: Kushti, an intimate getaway for two, and Savannah, a family-sized yurt.

Both feature an intricately designed interior filled with vibrant Indian and Asian textiles that take you far away from modern life.

A cosy wood burner will also keep you toasty on even the chilliest nights!

What guests say: “We had a wonderful relaxing and enjoyable stay in Savannah. The woodland is beautiful with interesting wildlife. The yurt was cosy and comfortable and the area outside it was perfect to relax and socialise – by sitting and chatting around the fire, reading on the decking or eating together on the outside table. A perfect getaway for our family.”

24. Forest Garden Log Cabins

exterior-of-the-jacaranda-cabin-in-the-forest-garden-in-autumn

Price per night: From £113 for 4 people

Location: Ashurst Wood, East Grinstead

Set in the same beautiful woodland as the Forest Garden Yurts are four amazing cabins that would not look out of place in the United States.

So if you’ve always fancied a cabin getaway in the forests or mountains of America (just without the price tag!), then this is your best bet.

Jacaranda, Orinoco, Anderida and Idaho each offer something different but what they all have in common is cosy interiors and wide, wooden verandas ideal for dining alfresco.

What guests say: “The cabin was a wonderfully cosy space with homely decor and all the pans, cups plates etc needed. We toasted marshmallows over our outside fire every night and kept ourselves toasty with the indoor wood burner. Breakfast was fabulous and it was great not to have to cook! We were surrounded by woodland, primroses and birdlife. Electricity was an unexpected bonus.” 

25. South Downs Shepherds Hut 

exterior-of-mint-yellow-and-wood-shepherds-hut-in-field

Price per night: From £65 for 2 people

Location: Swanborough, Lewes

Set in a three-acre plot with far-reaching views of rolling fields, South Downs Shepherds Hut goes hard on charm and comfort.

Enter the vintage-style hut and it will feel like you’ve stepped back in time.

However, don’t worry because the hut is still well-equipped with all the mod cons you’d expect from a glamping site in Sussex.

Electric lighting, an induction hob, Wi-Fi, and a DAB radio are just some of the things you’ll find inside.

And if that wasn’t luxurious enough for you, how does a steaming sauna sound?

Get me in there already!

What guests say: “This is a bolt hole like no other. If you prefer a back-to-basics weekend rather than a 5-star hotel, this is the place for you. You even get the luxury of a sauna thrown in. And views to die for – from your bed. Not to mention the no-expense-spared breakfast ingredients provided by Joe. We’re already planning our next visit!”

26. 1973 Airstream 

1973-silver-airstream-lit-up-by-fairy-lights-at-night

Price per night: From £100 for 4 people

Location: Brighton Marina, Brighton

If the Forest Garden cabins didn’t take you to America, then perhaps the 1973 Airstream will!

This stylish 31 foot long, fully renovated airstream can accommodate up to four guests, across a snug king-size bed and full-size sofa bed.

Inside, you’ll find a fully-equipped kitchen with an oven, hob, fridge, sink and a coffee machine, as well as a shower room.

And from the pink record player to the glass of wine awaiting your arrival, there are quirky, luxurious touches everywhere you look.

27. Hut Therapy

Price per night: From £68 for 2 people

Location: East Chiltington, Lewes

Hut Therapy is sure to provide the therapy you need to completely disconnect and unwind from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The hut is the perfect mix of cosy and modern, with a luxurious full shower room and warm textiles.

However, one of my favourite things about the hut is the plant-based and macrobiotic quality food that is served for breakfast and dinner!

Whether you enjoy breakfast in bed or outside on the sundeck, you’ll love not having to cook for yourself.

What guests say: “Gilly is an outstanding host! Not only is the hut a beautiful space to relax and take some time out of a busy lifestyle, but Gilly’s breakfasts are also incredible! The hut itself is a well constructed, warm and welcoming space with everything you could need for a calming stay and the surrounding gardens create a very private environment. Everything was spotlessly clean and I had three nights of uninterrupted, deep sleep. Utter bliss!”

28. Riverside Camp Wagon

Price per night: From £110 for 4 people

Location: Ringmer, Lewes

How do you fancy getting off-grid, lounging on the riverbank, and strolling down the trail to the pub?

Sound idyllic to you? I thought so.

Book a stay at Riverside Camp and you can do just that!

Set on Wellingham Farm, an absolute haven of biodiversity, you’ll spot an incredible array of birdlife, from kingfishers to heron, right on your doorstep.

While the surroundings really are the main draw of this place, the wagon themselves are cosy and comfortable too!

29. Wellingham Wagon

bed-kitchen-and-living-area-inside-wellingham-wagon

Price per night: From £130 for 4 people

Location: Ringmer, Lewes

Set on the same site as Riverside Camp Wagon but with an added bit of luxury, Wellingham Wagon is ideal for those who want a little more space to spread themselves across.

However, the off-grid cabin still retains that simplicity that puts nothing between you and the simple life.

There are gas hobs for cooking and a wood burner indoors for heating but other than that, it’s just you and nature!

A personal favourite highlight is the outdoor seating area which looks like one of the most special places you could ever dine alfresco.

30. Withywood Shepherd’s Hut

hammock-in-front-of-withywood-shepherds-hut-in-field-on-merrion-farm-glamping-sussex

Price per night: From £105 for 2 adults ot 2 adults and 2 children

Location: Bines Green, Ashurst

Can you think of a more idyllic spot to lounge on a long sunny summer evening than from that hammock? No? I didn’t think so.

Tucked away in a peaceful woodland setting on a working dairy farm you’ll find the ridiculously picturesque Withywood Shepherd’s Hut.

Inside, the hut is cosy and compact, without feeling too cramped, and is filled with games and books for you to dive into if the weather’s not on your side.

But if it is, make sure you make full use of the fire pit and outdoor cooking grid!

What guests say: “Glorious! An absolutely blissful stay in a cute, cosy shepherds hut surrounded by bird song and beautiful country walk options. Janice is super friendly and welcoming, the hot shower is, I think better than mine! And all in all, I returned to life in the city feeling an enormous sense of well-being.”

31. Blackberry Wood Treehouses

higgledy-treehouse-at-blackberry-wood-treehouses-glamping-sussex

Price per night: From £160 for 4 people

Location: Streat, Ditchling

I mean, do I even need to explain why you need to stay here? I think the photo above speaks for itself!

One of my absolute favourite places to go glamping in Sussex, Blackberry Wood is home to two treehouses that really are like the castles of fairytales.

They may be a little more back-to-basics than some of the other treehouses on this list but their quirky, rustic appeal is what makes them so special.

George Clarke even said that he’s “never seen a treehouse like it, the whole space is just magical” so if that doesn’t convince you to stay here, I’m not sure what will.

What guests say: “What a magical, amazing and very special place to stay. It really felt like we were in a storybook. Being able to explore the woods with so much to do and discover. The owners were also really helpful and the attention to detail is inspiring! Highly recommended! We will be coming back as soon as we can!”

32. Worth Forest Safari Tents

Price per night: From £125 for 6 people

Location: Balcombe, Crawley

Fancy feeling like you’re on the plains of South Africa rather than the fields of Sussex?

Then book a stay at Worth Forest Safari Tents.

There are two tents to choose from, and both come complete with a fully-equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, books and games, and probably the most luxurious ensuite bathroom I’ve ever seen in a safari tent!

Outside you’ll find your own private decking area with a table and chairs for alfresco dining and drinks.

What guests say: “A fabulous time had by all in the amazing safari tents that were so well equipped and comfortable. Seeing the children collecting firewood, toasting marshmallows and bread on the fire and having the freedom and safety to explore was amazing! Not once did they say they say they were bored – it was so refreshing! A fun time had by the adults too!”

33. Little Walnut Hut

Price per night: From £105 for 2 people

Location: Heathfield

Simple, bright and airy, Little Walnut Hut is the refresh you need from modern life.

Whether you relax in the cosy queen-size bed, clawfoot bathtub or by the outdoor furniture, a detox is pretty much guaranteed here.

I mean, how many people can say they’ve taken a bath in the middle of an AONB?

The setting here is nothing short of picturesque with a great array of wildlife on your doorstep.

Expect to meet the charming resident goats and spy wandering herds of deer passing through the field!

What guests say: “The most beautiful little hut in Heathfield. We absolutely loved the stay – it’s so cute and well done. Everything is to a fine standard – the bedding is cosy and warm and comfortable. There are all the amenities that you need for something without a “kitchen” – egg cooker, kettle and coffee maker. You arrive and there are fresh eggs from their chickens in a little bowl, as well as butter and granola and tea/coffee of course.”

34. Hoots Treehouse

Price per night: From £249 for 4 people

Location: Witherenden Hill, Mayfield

Any stay in Hoots Treehouse is pretty much guaranteed to be an absolute hoot. Sorry, I had to do it.

But as soon as you climb the steps up to the treehouse, I’m sure you will agree.

Perched above a pond amongst ancient woodland, the treehouse is truly hidden away, providing a much-needed escape from city or town life.

Arrive to a homemade cake which you can enjoy on the spacious decking or by the cosy wood-burner – or heck, even your kingsize bed. You are on holiday, after all!

There are also lots of luxurious touches to discover inside, from a 40″ TV to a Bluetooth Bose speaker. 

What guests say: “We absolutely loved our stay at Hoots Treehouse! The treehouse itself is like a model miniature home, elegant and charming, and it’s located in a tranquil oasis, surrounded by trees, nested over a pond. We loved making a fire in the fire pit outside in the evening and having our breakfast on the spacious veranda in the morning, enjoying the view and the sunshine. An idyllic getaway, highly recommended!”

35. Log Cabin Retreat

Price per night: From £200 for 4 people

Location: Little Common, Bexhill

Luxury log cabins with a wood-fired hot tub? I’m sold already.

Oh and then you throw in the fact that the cabins are nestled within the grounds of a beautiful Georgian Manor on the East Sussex coast. Even better!

Sleeping two to four people across a king-size bed and a sofa bed, you can make a stay at Log Cabin Retreat a romantic getaway or a family break.

Either way, you get to enjoy breathtaking coastal views from your private hot tub.

Sounds like one of the best places to go glamping in Sussex to me.

What guests say: “The place is perfect for a romantic getaway. It has the most beautiful views with lots of beautiful walks around. The cabin was extremely clean and was kitted out with everything needed for our weekend. I would also recommend the breakfast hamper; perfect touch to our romantic weekend. The staff have been amazing to contact during the current times, and even set up the hot tub for our arrival!”

36. Undercover Treehouse

Price per night: From £84 for 2 people

Location: Colgate, Pease Pottage

If glamping isn’t so much your thing and you’d rather get closer to nature, then consider booking a stay in the Undercover Treehouse.

I’ve never seen anything quite like it before so it definitely wins bonus points for being totally unique!

It’s a tent, in a tree, with a double bed. I mean, need I say anymore?

Overlooking a stream, the outdoor treetop decking is an absolute dream.

I’m already daydreaming about eating breakfast alfresco or drinking a glass of wine at sunset from it.

And if that wasn’t enough, you’ve also got a Swedish hot tub to relax in!

What guests say: “The most unique and magical Airbnb experience we have had! Sam is such an amazing host, he guided and introduced us nice hiking path, brought us pastries both of the mornings, helped us get some drinks and even gave us a ride to the train station! A perfect getaway as nothing can beat a Swedish hot tub and shower surrounded by greens and fresh air! The treehouse is very cosy and warm with the stove even in November.” 

37. Wilderness Wagon

Price per night: From £88 for 2 people

Location: Scaynes Hill, Sheffield Green

Last but by no means least on this list of glamping holidays in Sussex, we have Wilderness Wagon, an intimate getaway for two.

The bow top gypsy wagon is set within its own private gated haven with the most incredible view of the wild field.

This provides the perfect setting for you and your partner to totally disconnect from life and just enjoy each other’s company.

The wagon is also lovingly stocked with lots of board games so there’s no excuse to get bored here!

Turn off your phones and get ready for this romantic retreat.

What guests say: “The wagon is beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need – including a super comfy bed, board games, coffee machine and blackout blinds to enjoy lie-ins! Outside the wagon are a fire pit and kitchenette area with fairy lights all around, perfect for BBQs. We loved sitting at the fire pit in the evening with a drink toasting marshmallows. The setting of the wagon is beautiful, surrounded by acres of countryside.”
