The Owner Says
Hadlow Hideaways is a unique eco camping experience located in a picturesque valley in East Sussex. We are located on the edge of a small woodland in the village of Hadlow Down which is approximately 20 minutes from the south coast. With the South Downs National Park and the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters only minutes away, we are perfectly situated for a relaxing getaway from the city with your family or as a couple.
Heron House is an Emperor style bell tent located in the beautiful rolling hills of the East Sussex country side. Your bell tent will come fully furnished with a luxurious king side bed and futons for additonal guests. We provide bed linen, towels, dressing gowns and coffee station to help you ease into the morning, and there is a wood burner and plenty of cosy throws and blakets to keep you toasty at night. Heron House sits on a deck which has a firepit that you can cook on and a private bathroom including shower and toilet. Finally unwind under the stars in your own wood fired hot tub.
Designed for comfort and luxury, reset the senses and unwind under the stars in your wood fired hot tub. Enjoy cards and board games around the fire with friends and family and enjoy some of our home grown produce on the BBQ or one of our great local pubs or wineries.

Features & Facilities
Bell tents are on a raised deck with a wood-fired hot tub alongside. Inside, they feature a king-sized master bed and futon-style extra beds, a wood-burning stove, charging points for phone and tablets, bedside furnishings, tea and coffee making facilities, rugs and storage boxes. The deck links to a private kitchen hut with everything you should need and a rustic shower room and toilet. All constructed with the environment in mind, the wood is FSC certified and eco-friendly Faith In Nature toiletries are provided. Towels, dressing gowns and linen are all provided too. Hadlow Hideaways is on a working farm setting with pigs and chickens.
In the High Weald AONB, there’s plenty of good walking on the doorstep, not least to one of the local pubs (see Food & Drink). Further afield, it’s a 15-minute drive to Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum (01825 840573) – a multi-faceted family attraction where there’s also an estate to explore and a huge wildfowl collection – while Sheffield Park, the other side of Uckfield, is a magnificent National Trust garden, from where steam trains run to East Grinstead on the Bluebell Railway (01825 720800). If it's raining, you might consider a trip to the Jacobean mansion of Rudyard Kipling, Bateman's, in nearby Burwash, while, on particularly sunny days, the coast probably calls. It’s 40 minutes to the seaside around Eastbourne and Birling Gap, while it’s 50 to Brighton and Hastings respectively. And, if you’re interested in 1066 history, the battle of Hastings actually took place in Battle, 30 minutes by car.
Food & Drink
It’s a three-minute drive of 25-minute walk to The Grove Farmhouse Café (01825 890415), a light, glass-fronted old building with farm shop fayre alongside the café. The pond-side Blackboys Inn (01825 890283) is a touch further down the road, though, in the opposite direction, it’s a five-minute drive and 30-minute walk to Hadlow Down where the old red-brick pub, built in 1885, wins on the history front. It has listed status and retains many of its original interior fittings and features, all much lorded over in pub guides and CAMRA circles. At the rear right is ‘the snug’, a small carpeted room with a bar billiards table, while in the main area the spartan public bar fittings are much as they were in Victorian times with a wood-block floor and a long Victorian counter.
