The Owner Says

Our accommodations are more like B&B suites that happen to be in our 10 acres of gardens, paddock and ancient bluebell woods but without the ensuite, indeed we started life as a 5* Gold Award winning B&B and diversified into glamping to cope with excess demand, we still serve our gourmet award winning breakfast too for those mornings when you don't want to be bothered to cook.  Our accommodations have very high specifications and all have feature beds with electric blankets and an assortment of sofa beds and futons with memory foam toppers.  We take a pride in the great attention to detail provided in all of our themed glamping accommodations. 
There are 4  x 5m bell tents all together on our top paddock and each sleeps 4 so ideal for families or a group of friends. 
In the middle paddock there is a 6m 2-6 person Rose themed bell tent and 2 animal print themed yurts perfect for families, often two families holidaying together, or a group of 10 as each of these sleeps 5. 
Nestled in the woodlands just off the middle paddock is the romantic Moroccan yurt with 7ft round bed perfect for couples although it does sleep 4.
In the bottom paddock there are 2 group yurts that each sleep 10; perfect for groups. 
Whole site if booked exclusively will sleep 56.
There is a spa in the main country house with health suite with hot tub, infrared sauna and body jet shower and there is a treatment room where our highly qualified spa manager offers a full range of beauty, spa and massage therapies.  There is a TV cinema guest  lounge with 9ft screen.  We offer a huge range of catering by our in house qualified chef and a range of on site activities to keep you amused. 
Please see our website for full details and also photo slide show galleries and videos of all of our accommodations and our over 200 5/5 reviews on Trip Adviser.  Late availability and videos, including those of the grounds and woodlands, spa, catering and activities can be found on
We do not take on-line bookings as I like to speak to everyone to ensure they are allocated the perfect accommodation to suit and can make recommendations and place similar people next to each other eg children of the same age place together, couples together, groups kept separately in their own paddock etc as it is important that interaction with other guests inhances the stay.  I can also use my discretion on discounted pricing.  I can also help with special requirements and help arrangements for the weekend and make local recommendations.  We offer a personalised bookings experience, hence our reviews, so I would love to speak to you.  Telephone calls are fine any time up to 11pm or email me for a full information pack which includes everything we offer on site and all the relevant prices.
Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you, Amanda :)

About Woodside Spa and Glamping

Suitable For

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.

Food & Drink

The site has a ‘Breakfast Award’ and guests can order anything from a full English to eggs Benedict, smoked salmon, haddock, homemade smoothies and pancakes with maple syrup and banana. Also on offer are ‘Vintage Tea Parties’ with sandwiches, scones, profiterole towers, cupcakes and seasonal fruit served with a variety of teas and decorated jugs of Pimms. Woodside also supply local, organic and free range products to glampers from the kitchen on pre-order basis. A complimentary beverage area is also provided with free instant coffee, tea cakes and more. Offsite, there’s plenty of local eateries to fill your belly. Grab an afternoon drink at the Cross Inn in Staplecross, a classic old drinkers’ pub, and full of local characters. To treat someone special (or yourself), check out the Curlew restaurant in Bodiam a Michelin star gastro delight, with a varied menu and extensive wine list. The Castle Inn opposite Bodiam Castle offers good value food served in generous portions. The terrace overlooks a big field which also acts as a play area for little ones.
