Hastingford Fishery Glamping

4 units · Glamping32 acres · Uckfield, England
Searching for a peaceful holiday/short break without kids underfoot? Ramble along to Hastingford Fishery, an adults-only shepherd's hut and fishing site set in a scenic lakeside setting less than five minutes’ drive from the East Sussex village of Hadlow Down and 20 minutes from Royal Tunbridge Wells. This site should suit couples or singles wanting to 'get away from it all' and also fishing fans down to the ground. It’s got several fishing lakes to choose from with lots of different species, so settle down on the banks with rod in hand and while away a few hours (or days) in quiet contemplation, waiting for something to bite. But please note, the site is not for 'competition anglers' although there are plenty of good sized carp around. and asks anyone fishing to only use barbless hooks, and for fish to be returned to the lake quickly after being caught.Not the fishing type? Chill out in and around your secluded hut, or there’s plenty to entertain in a leisurely fashion: paths wind around the lakes and through copses/shaws (as this is the High Weald) plus through the local countryside. There are spectacular views towards the South Downs National Park from the top lakes. A spring-fed lake is also on site to cool off in with some wild swimming. Lots of bird life around, with feeders outside each hut and waterfowl visitors to the lakes.When it comes to eats, pick up or have supplies delivered from supermarkets or takeaways in Uckfield, Heathfield or Crowborough or take a drive to Buxted Park for some posh food or pubs in Blackboys, Crowborough, Ringles Cross, 5 Ash Down, Rotherfield, or Buxted (it'll take about 10 minutes to drive to any of these). Lots of sample menus in huts.

Shepherd's huts in Kent Coast with wildlife watching guide

Overview

If Kent is the “Garden of England”, its coastline is the most magnificent of garden walls. Choose between the rugged south shores, where startling white sea cliffs look out across the English Channel, or the Blue Flag beaches of the North Sea coast, all within day-trip distance of London. Outdoor adventures await at every corner—enjoy coastal hikes and bike rides, spot wildlife on wetland walks, or play a game at one of the cliff-top golf courses. May through October offers the most pleasant weather for seaside camping and water sports, but it’s possible to explore year-round in a campervan or caravan.  

Where to go

North Sea Coast

Kent’s 10 Blue Flag beaches all lie along the north shore. The south-eastern resorts of Margate, Ramsgate, and Broadstairs draw beachgoers and surfers throughout the summer months, but if you can brave the cold, you’ll catch the biggest swells in winter. Further west, the pebble beaches and colorful beach huts paint a pretty picture at Herne Bay and Whitstable, while the Isle of Sheppey has a wide choice of beachside camping and caravan parks.

South Coast

South of Ramsgate, white chalk cliffs, rocky coves, and shingle beaches stretch along the shores of the English Channel. The headline act is the White Cliffs of Dover, home to one of England’s most rewarding coastal hikes. Further south, Folkestone is a favorite for summer campers and caravanners, while the Romney marshes are popular with walkers and bird-watchers.  

East Kent

North of Dover, the rolling green hills of the Kent Downs—an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty—provide a lush backdrop for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding. Stay at a farmland campsite, visit the cathedral city of Canterbury, or play a game of golf with views across the countryside.

West Kent

With easy access from London, west Kent provides plenty of options for city campers or glampers looking for a rural escape. Spend a night in a tipi or bell tent, enjoy wine tasting at a local vineyard, then take a ride on the scenic Spa Valley railway. For hikers, the High Weald AONB has trails ranging from short walks to epic hikes.
