Cabin Getaways for Couples in Sussex

I'm constantly looking for new places to stay in the Sussex countryside with my partner, it's a great way to spend time together and relax. Some of my best memories with my partner are when we have stayed at a wooden cabin near Petworth; it's kind of in the middle of no where but that's what makes it so relaxing. Being surrounded by greenery and animals makes you slow down and appreciate the small things. Any cabin with a hot tub is a huge plus for me, I absolutely love them. Whether you're looking for a weekend away, a staycation or a mini moon, a cabin getaway would be perfect. Let's have a look at some of the best I've found:

Drew's Farm, West Sussex/Hampshire

Anna has two Shepherd's huts on her land in Rowland's Castle. They have beautifully decorated interiors and a copper bath hot tub outside to add to the relaxation of the countryside views. There's a fire pit allowing guests to do their own BBQ for dinner whilst enjoying the sunset over the fields. This airbnb is great for outdoorsy couples who like to go for walks and enjoy the peacefulness of nature. They have the option to hire out electric bikes, book windsurfing lessons and have your meals prepared by a local chef. Everything you need for the perfect getaway.

Swallowtail Hill, East Sussex

There are five different types of accommodation available at Swallowtail Hill Farm, all different types of wooden cabins/ cottages. My favourites are The Roundhouse and The Longview. The Roundhouse is a round wooden hut, perfect for couples looking for a luxury woodland retreat. There is a wood-fired hot tub and fire pit to cook al fresco or toast marshmallows. Guests can order Breakfast Boxes and BBQ boxes before they arrive to make self-catering easier. They describe The Long View as luxury glamping with a view. It has been decorated beautifully and the outside space offers a hot tub and fire pit. The full length window at the end of the cabin not only allows the guests to watch the sunrise from their bed, but it also fully opens up to bring the outdoors inside.

Walkwood Wagon, Uckfield, East Sussex

This pretty little wagon has been beautifully converted into cosy accommodation for couples. Here you are surrounded by the National Trust bluebell woodlands with miles of woodland trails and national park to explore. There is an outdoor heated bath for you to relax in whilst taking in the views. The campfire or the wood-burner will take care of the cooking, as well as keeping you warm and toasty during the evenings. If you like steam trains you could take a trip on the Bluebell Railway which goes between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead.

Chase Farm, Southwater, West Sussex

This farm has two amazing new places for couples to stay, they're not cabins but I think they're worth a mention. They have a super cool air stream which has a decked area outside with outdoor furniture and a fire pit, where you can cook over open flames and stargaze late into the night. They also have a blue shepherds hut which has a lovely cosy interior with a patio area with outdoor furniture, a fire pit barbecue and stunning views. It's located in the countryside of West Sussex with plenty of nature to explore on your doorstep. If you can bring yourself away from your tranquil hideaway, there’s plenty to do in the local area; there are lots of walking trails to explore, as well as plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs in Horsham town.
