About Woodside Spa and Glamping
Glampers, couples, groups, exclusive hire and kids – yes. Tents, caravans, motorhomes and dogs – no.
The fishing port of Hastings and its Old Town (15 minutes) offers plenty of fun for the family including: the chance to spot sharks and rays at the Blue Reef Aquarium and Smugglers Cave, where you can discover the secrets of smugglers buried deep in the heart of Hastings' West. And whilst you're close to the water, you might as well get wet at Bewl Water, which offers a host of water-based activities including fly-fishing and key water sports. If you're planning on bringing a bike, pop over to nearby Bedgebury Forest for some off-road biking to suit all capabilities. Sedlescombe and Carr Taylor vineyards are only few minutes away, with visitors being able turn up and enjoy the gorgeous countryside, or come en masse for a tutored tour & tasting session. Often described as “England’s quaintest town”, Rye (15 minutes) feels like a little piece of the past and makes for a splendid day out. Even the most hard-boiled cynics can't fail to be softened by Rye's secretive passageways, cobbled lanes and half-timbered Tudor architecture. Just out of town is Rye Harbour Nature Reserve which plays host to an impressive array of coastal birds, frogs and beetles. Entry is free.
