The Owner Says
Tucked away amongst ash and willow trees and overlooking a bamboo-lined pond, the Dogwood Cabin is a haven of peace and tranquility. The cosy, heated pine cabin is decorated in an Eastern-style and has a futon double bed with luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets. This fully-insulated retreat has all the modern comforts glampers have come to expect – silent mini-fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and a compost loo – but with one unique difference.
Nestled in the heart of the High Weald, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the cabin affords glampers the chance to experience a real back-to-nature visit. From the comfort of your cabin, you can just slide open the patio doors and let the birdsong fill the cabin as you watch our resident chickens or visiting ducks waddle past. There is even a suntrap meditation deck for those who enjoy quiet, reflective time.
In the mornings you can order breakfast brought straight to your door. And at nights, after a meal at the pub, you can warm yourself with your own fire pit and toast marshmallows while looking out for shooting stars in our noted dark skies.
Suitable for 1 or 2 adults + 1 baby/ small child the Cabin is heated, carpeted and sits in a secluded corner of the Dogwood Estate and is equipped with:
- Futon Double Bed
- Egyptian cotton bed linen
- Silent mini-fridge
- Tea and coffee making facilities
- Writing desk
- Electric heater
- Comfortable seating area
- Patio sliding door

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).
