Set on the outskirts of an ancient bluebell woodland, surrounded by lush green meadows, this hand-built Shepherd’s Hut is an off-grid space where stresses melt away.
Maybe it’s the views out over the pond, the woods and the fields. Or maybe it’s the hut itself, with its achingly pretty cornflower-blue interior. Whatever it is, a glamping stay at Sussex Flower Glamping gives you a deeply restful space to escape the hustle and bustle of life.
You’ll find Sussex Flower Glamping on a 100-acre family farm, on the edge of the glorious South Downs National Park, 6 miles north of Brighton. The farm is home to Cathy and James Flower, their 2 young sons, William and Freddie, 12 chickens and a one cat.
Complimentary breakfast hamper delivered to your door every morning
When you come and stay, the woods and fields around the hut become yours to enjoy as the dawn breaks or the sun sets. And the family are on-hand to make sure you have everything you need: including delivering a delicious breakfast hamper to your door every morning, full of local produce to help you start the day.
Inside the hut, you can curl up on the soft double bed, freshly made with floral linen, or sit and relax in front of the log burner as it crackles and pops to the sounds of the birds outside. There is no electricity here; this is truly off-grid, so as evening falls, light the candles, click on the fairy lights and ease back to watch the stars appear.
If you want to sit outside, there’s a traditional fire-pit to warm yourself by with logs and marshmallows to buy for £5. Or if you want to wander further afield, there are two outstanding pubs within walking distance: The Shepherd and Dog and the Ginger Fox.
