Large group of huts available for family and friends gatherings near Hastings

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Original Hut Company, Bodiam, East Sussex, sleeps 18 in bedrooms.

Our huts are built on site by us, using reclaimed and recycled materials where ever possible. The only electricity on the site is provided for lighting via a solar panel. We have two sites which both have 4 living huts. Two can accommodate up to 4 people the remaining two accommodating up to 5 people. We have a separate camp site if additional accommodation is required.

On both the hut site and the camp site there is a communal covered area with a fire where a group can spend time together outside even if the weather is being a little unkind (good old Blighty). The communal wash hut is sited between the 4 living huts and houses two loos and two amazing, hot gas fired showers. The huts are fully insulated and double glazed. Heating is provided by a small wood burning stove meaning we can offer warm and cosy accommodation throughout the year.

We are based in the heart of the High Weald in Rural East Sussex. We are blessed with a huge wealth of historic towns, houses and gardens. The Kent and Sussex steam railway runs into our 200 acre farm and a short stroll across the fields leads you to Bodiam Castle.

A little ferry runs from a jetty at the Castle and can take a group of up to 16 people down the river to the next pub down stream.

Groups are also well catered for at Go Ape in Bedgebury forest - a 15 minute drive from the site. We have some great food and wine experiences very locally, with the Curlew Restaurant (Michelin Star) in the village and The Lighthouse Bakery School in the lane opposite our drive. The Castle Inn on the edge of the farm is very accommodating to groups and will work out a pre-bookable set menu.

We also have an award winning organic vineyard in walking distance great for an afternoons wine tasting. We are able to run foraging, forest school, team building, basketry and pottery courses on site and also have a falconer who will come in to take groups for a Hawk Walk round the farm.

The huts are available for weekend or mid week breaks.
