The Owner Says
Reached down a leafy lane lined with Oak trees, the yurt is a 20 foot diameter, felt-lined Ornate Turkmen built from Ash trees sourced from the Glyndebourne Forest and is of a strikingly beautiful construct. It has a 6 foot roof wheel which is great for lighting during the day and on clear nights gives fine views of the stars; it is also possible to partially open up the roof. There are barn owls, badgers and rabbits for company and the surroundings are usually alive with birdsong, with an amazing morning and dusk chorus.

Amid the High Weald AONB (01580 879500), there are plenty of good walks in the local area while a stroll in Brede High Woods is a particular highlight, the stunning ancient trees are over 400 years old and home to an array of birdlife. Head south to the numerous beaches that are within driving distance, Camber Sands being perhaps the most well known, or stop at one of the coastal towns. Hastings is an excellent place, not only for its historic old town and famous connections with the invasion of 1066, but also for the spattering of fantastic seafood that can be found. Further inland, Battle, is where William the Conqueror defeated Kind Harold II and the spectacular Abbey (01424 775705) he built to commemorate the event also has a visitor centre with a wealth of information. History lovers should also visit Rye, a wonderfully unspoilt ancient port town. The 14th century Bodiam Castle (01580 830196) is a few miles north of the campsite, while Scotney Castle (01892 893820) and Bateman's (01435 882302), Rudyard Kipling's former home, are further but still less than half an hour's drive. Those hoping for something walkable need look no further than wine tasting in the Carr Taylor Vineyard (01424 751716) or The Giants of Brede (01323 897310), a steam museum with free entry.
Food & Drink
There is a small onsite shop selling home-grown organic seasonal veg, free-range eggs and other essentials. The Red Lion (01424 882188) pub is just 10 minute stroll across the fields and serves great local seasonal British cuisine, while The Rainbow Trout (01424 882031) is a 15 minute walk towards Broad Oak and provides a great selection of meals as well as a sizeable beer garden. Both are dog friendly. Brede Farmer's Market (01424 813928) runs every Friday 10am-12 noon in the village hall. It offers a fantastic selection of local produce and a warm welcome is guaranteeed... as are a few delectable tasters as you wander round! There's also a convenience store within walking distance and a large Sainsbury's 10 minutes drive away. For those fans of the grape, the family-run Carr Taylor Vineyard (01424 752501) offers tasting tours from £10.

From London take the M25. Exit at A21 towards Hastings, turn left onto A268 at Flimwell, follow onto A28. Located on A28 between Westfield and Broad Oak. Look for white sign at entrance to drive. Go to end and through gate to site (approx 150 yards).
