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.

Externally the yurt is surrounded by decking including a firepit and picnic table; there is parking very close by. Internally the yurt is decorated in an eclectic but chiefly Tibetan style and includes the following:
  • a Morso Wood Burning Stove. A radiator is also available for additional warmth.
  •  2 x Deluxe Handmade Taurus beds (90cm  x 180cm); including firm 'orthopaedic' mattresses.
  • Quality bedding including duck down duvets and pillows. Egyptian Cotton bed linen.
  • Kettle, mini-fridge, electric lighting. Complimentary tea and coffee provided. Complimentary mineral water.
  • Chairs, small table and other basic furniture including cushions.
  • Travel cot available
  • Commode (optional!). A short walk from the yurt are 2 toilets and a basic shower.
  • Outside – picnic bench, parasol, fire bowl.
  • Small shop on site selling milk, eggs, wood, occasional homemade bread.
Pets Sorry... no pets are allowed in the yurt.
Catering
Apart from the electric kettle, toaster, mini fridge and wood stove, there are currently no catering facilities available at the yurt. We do have a small shop on site for basic supplies including local raw milk and yoghurt as well as free range eggs (the ones from our chickens, when available, are organic). We also bake our own organic seeded  sourdough bread. At extra cost we can provide a simple breakfast and there are tea and coffee making facilities available in the yurt. There is plenty of space outside for cooking for those who have their own cooking equipment. If required a firebowl is available for outside cooking. Most importantly however, a 10 minute walk from the yurt is the Red Lion 'gastro' pub which does great lunches and dinners (and good beer!). We also recommend the Rainbow Trout in Broad Oak, a walk or a short driving distance away. Various restaurants in Rye will also deliver as far as Brede. Depending upon availability organic vegetables available for purchase from our 'vegetarian organic' vegetable garden.
The yurt is ideal for two but certainly has the space, if not the actual beds, to accommodate more and is easily adaptable to small family occupation. It can be made up as either a twin or a double as in the pictures below – please let us know which you prefer on booking.
Please note we provide bed linen for the beds, any additional children must bring their own camp beds and bed linen
One night midweek stays are available at £95. Please contact Dogwood directly to book.

Activities

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.
