Idaho Cabin

If you’re looking for a relaxing woodland getaway, to spend some quality time with people you love away from busy city life, hiring one of our Sussex log cabins are the perfect way to unwind. 

The Idaho Cabin hire was hand built using western red cedar which still emits the beautiful and relaxing phytoncides (wood essential oils). There is much attention to detail in the construction of the cabin and the beautiful hand-built furniture inside. A beautiful way to enjoy the natural woodlands of Sussex.


- Sleeps up to 4 (+ 1 additional at £45pp/pn)
- Double bed and double sofa bed
- Mezzanine level sleeping
- Open plan living area
- Kitchen/diner
- Veranda with outdoor seating
- No pets


The double bed sleeping area is situated up on the mezzanine level, accessible via a sturdy ladder. Alternatively, there is a sofa bed that can also sleep 2 people, situated in the comfortable living area opposite a warm woodburning stove. 

Kindling can be collected from the woodland floor and you can either bring your own kiln dried logs or buy them from the Forest Garden shop.

The kitchen diner is well equipped with all the pots, pans, cutlery and crockery you will need, alongside a large cedar table, bench and banquette (seat) which pulls out to take a double futon mattress for an additional 2 guests.

Outside there is a wide veranda which offers a covered deck space with table and benches for outdoor eating. A large open outdoor fire-pit with oak benches and large log stools are outside the cabin. There is a grill that can be placed on the fire to barbeque food. 

Idaho Cabin hire is located approx 180m from the shower/WC/washing up area.  The shared shower/loo and washing up facilities consist of 2 x separate showers, 2 x WC's and handbasin and 2 x outdoor double washing up sinks and are located beside the car park.
