About Hadlow Hideaways Glamping

Suitable For

Glamping only. Dogs are not permitted.


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.

Lovely owners

I went to stay here for a weekend with some friends. The owners were nothing but kind and polite to us, and really made our stay worthwhile. One of our group uses a feeding tube which needed charging during our visit, and Connor charged it for us at his house so that we wouldn’t need to cut our stay short. He also let us see and pet his pigs, which we all really enjoyed. The yurt was beautifully set up and very comfortable, with a kitchen with all the tools we needed. It was very windy and rainy on the weekend we were there, but luckily the yurt kept us cosy and dry. The wood burning stove and the hot tub were also really enjoyable. Overall we all had a lovely time and definitely plan on coming back soon.

Perfect escape from everything

We stayed a couple of nights and it was absolutely LOVELY. The setting is beautiful, completely peaceful, not a house or road in sight, and we had the whole field to ourselves. The tent is luxurious, light and well appointed, with a comfy double bed. The two single futons are a little thin, but we doubled one up so it was fine. There's a log burner and fluffy duvets so we were very snug. We loved the little touches - the cocoa and shortbread, the games (although maybe add a couple of classics?), the books, fairy lights, fluffy robes and especially the welcome hamper! The best bit was the hot tub: although it took ages to get it hot - so preheating would definitely have been helpful - it was divine once it was hot! The only other thing I would recommend would be complimentary ear plugs and eye masks in the welcome pack because a big tent is noisy in a high wind and very light in the morning. Other than that, it's really well equipped (especially the kitchen!) and the hosts were so helpful and responsive. so all in all it was pretty perfect!

A simply incredible place.

I would like to start the review by saying, we tried to stay on for extra nights because we didn’t want to leave. The setup is beautiful. We never saw another soul apart from the hosts who were friendly, attentive and not in your face. Perfect! The view from the tent and the hot tub is breathtaking, and the tent was pristine, comfortable and spacious. The hot tub is also amazing, and the offer to pre-heat it for us, was gratefully received. With regard to everything else, it was excellent, but could be even better with a few tweaks. The (private) compost loo/shower was clean, and worked well. The kitchen was well equipped (shout out to the excellent cool box which still had ice in it 3 days after we bought ice cubes to cool our drinks.) The bed is comfortable, and the fresh flowers, welcome pack and fluffy bath robes a really nice touch. The setup would benefit from a sink of some sort. Washing up / brushing teeth in a bucket is not perfect, and the tap could be moved to miss the decking! but that was realistically the only gripe in an otherwise lovely trip. We will be back, and we have recommended it to many others.
