Accommodation is booking up fast for the autumn break. Here’s our pick of cottages and glampsites that still have availability
Hand-built by farmer Nick on a farm in the tiny village of Bodiam, the Original Hut Company’s shepherd’s huts are made with reclaimed timber and locally sourced materials. Fire pits and log-burners keep the four-berth huts snug year-round, and an on-site cafe and wellness space – The Hub – provides somewhere warm and dry to hunker down. Pizza nights, picnic hampers, pop-up taco vans, and homemade local produce take the pressure off catering. Flanking the National Trust’s Bodiam Castle estate, with the River Rother flowing at the bottom of the farm (outdoor adventure company Epic Life can organise kayaking or SUP adventures), the site lends itself to car-free days and mini adventures. For those who want to explore further afield, Camber Sands, Brede High Woods, Rye and Hastings are all a short drive away.
