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.

Things to do in Alfriston

Alfriston is a village within the beautiful Cuckmere Valley, part of the South Downs National Park. It’s a great place to explore on foot, by bike or on horseback and the South Downs Way National Trail runs right through the village making it a handy spot to stop off if you’re taking on the whole route or a great base from which to explore. The village itself has a little high street with a few independent shops and some great country pubs as well as a National Trust treasure. The Alfriston Clergy House was the first property acquired and protected by the National Trust and remains open to visitors. Thought to date back to around 1400, it is forever associated with the village church, which is also worth a look. Families with kids will be pleased to know that the ever-popular Drusillas Zoo Park is just a few minutes’ drive out of the village too. Add to this the proximity of the south coast (just four miles away) with the Seven Sisters Country Park, Eastbourne and Brighton nearby and you won’t run out of things to do while you’re camping in Alfriston.
