The Vacationist

1 unit · Glamping2 acres · Uckfield, England
The Vacationist offers the chance to sleep in a beautifully designed bespoke eco-cabin in your own peaceful meadow. Fully off-grid, available all year-round and with 4 comfortable berths, this is your chance to escape it all without compromising on comfort, location or eco credentials. The Vacationist has been carefully designed to balance luxury, freedom and environmental impact. We wanted to help people reduce the carbon impact of their holiday by offering them a luxurious, comfortable and relaxing alternative in the UK. This is as close to net zero travel as you can get! We also wanted our guests to experience the joy of a outdoors, off-grid escape, where the kids can run around fields and climb trees and the adults can sit around the fire drinking wine and watching the stars. This is what memories are made of. The cabin is full of eco-technology and features solar panels, infrared heating, a bio-ethanol burner, double-glazed windows, water saving technology and sheep's wool insulation. We've repurposed where we can and also worked with partners chosen for their dedication to sustainable design - you will marvel at the story of our sofas and our painstakingly-assembled (with the help of our local school) ‘coloured-pencil’ epoxy kitchen counter. And your kids will love the hidden bookcase room - it was designed by our kids for your kids, so we're confident it will go down well! The Vacationist invites you to East Sussex to holiday without damaging the planet.

Cabins in Kent Downs AONB with campfires guide

Overview

Sloping farmlands, ancient woodlands, and lush wetlands make up the vast landscapes of the Kent Downs. Kent isn’t called the ‘Garden of England’ for nothing—visit the downs in spring to stroll through bluebell woods and daffodil meadows, in summer when wildflowers blanket the hilltops, or in autumn to admire the changing foliage. Miles of hiking, cycling, and horseback riding trails await outdoor adventurers, and campers have options year-round. Camp out in a tipi or pitch your tent by the beachside in summer, then cozy up in a heated glamping hut when the weather turns.  

Where to go

North-West Downs and the Surrey Hills

The northern borders of the Kent Downs lie right on the outskirts of London, making it a popular choice for day-trippers. Enjoy rambling country walks around Sevenoaks, visit the Knole deer park, and stroll through the orchards of Plaxtol. For long-distance hikers, the North Downs Way national trail runs west into the Surrey Hills AONB. 

Medway

North of Maidstone, the River Medway winds its way north to the coast, and the downs give way to lush marshlands. Set sail on a river cruise, discover the hometowns of Charles Dickens in Rochester and Chatham, or go bird-watching along the Thames Estuary at Northward Hill. To the east, seafront campsites and blue-flag beaches dot the shores of the Isle of Shetty.

Central Downs and the North Coast

The Kent Downs AONB has hikes to suit all levels. Explore ancient woodlands and Iron Age ruins in the White Horse Country Park, walk the valleys of the Devil's Kneading Trough, or stroll among the wildflowers in Perry Wood. Camp out in the hills and enjoy day trips to Kent attractions such as Canterbury Cathedral and Leeds Castle. 

Kent’s South Coast

Few natural landmarks are as iconic as the White Cliffs of Dover, and a walk along the famous sea cliffs is a must if you’re visiting the south coast. Afterward, cycle along the Royal Military Canal, stroll along the beach at Folkestone, and choose a campsite with a sea view. Further south, it’s an easy detour to explore the Romney Marshes, a favorite among bird-watchers.
