The Owner Says
Features & Facilities2 huts to choose from. The Higler hut is designed for couples only. It is off grid and set well away from the rest of the camping areas, under the partial shade of an old oak tree. It is simply laid out with a French Double bed, Chilly Billy wood burner, comfy seats and reading lights. There is a single burner gas cooker for kettle boiling and simple cooking and sink. Outside there is a BBQ, fire pit and grid, picnic bench, shower and eco toilet. All kitchen provisions are provided and a welcome pack can be ordered separately, which usually includes fresh farm eggs, juice, bread, butter, milk, cereal.
The Anderida Shepherds Hut provides accommodation for 2 adults and 2 children with a double bed and separate bunk room, a kitchenette with gas cooker, dining area and a unique recycled wood-stove, hot shower cubicle (bring towels). Bed linen & duvet for the double bed and single duvets, bottom sheet and pillows for children (under 16). The hut has its own clean eco compost toilet in a stylish beach hut with a poesy of fresh flowers. In winter we move the hut lakeside, where it becomes a cosy retreat for adults. Campfires permitted in the river meadow. Dogs are not permitted in either of the huts.
ActivitiesThe nearby Cuckoo Trail is a great option for cycling or walks, weaving its way through woods, fields, and the best of the rolling Sussex countryside. Normans Bay, named after the Normans who landed here a thousand years ago, is 25 minutes away; or if its raining pop into The Observatory Science Centre (01323 832731) on selected evenings when you can look through impressive telescopes at events in the night sky. Brighton (45 minutes away) has a fabulous array of activities to keep you busy, whilst a lengthy walk along the South Downs National Park (England’s newest National park) is certainly a must do given its proximity. Lewes (17 miles) is a pretty little market town with great shops, thousands of flea markets and a number of decent pubs. Don’t leave without visiting its enchanting castle (01273 486290) built during the days of William the Conqueror, and continuing the history theme just south of the town centre lies the historic Anne of Cleves House (01273 474610).
Food & DrinkThe recently reopened Brewers Arms (01435 812435) is within easy walking distance and treats visitors to a quintessentially British country pub experience. The menu is eclectic and the food always fresh and (whenever possible) locally sourced. Also within walking distance is the Black Duck (01435 830 636), a 15th Century freehouse, situated in the depths of the East Sussex countryside. The traditional pub grub has gained an excellent reputation so you are strongly advised to book ahead. Classics include: deep-fried Brie in breadcrumbs & cranberry, local pork sausages with mash & onion gravy and pork tenderloin wrapped in Parma ham with mash potato and cider sauce. Visit Hank who runs the local farm shop (again within easy walking distance) for sausages and home-cured bacon that taste delicious on the campfire. There’s also some great little shops and supermarkets in the local market town of Heathfield (4 miles), which also gives the option of takeaways and restaurants.
