Whether you’re on the hunt for a woodland getaway with family, friends or as a couple, come and explore the natural beauties that Sussex has to offer whilst staying in one of our comfortable log cabin hires.
The Orinoco Cabin hire is situated on the edge of the woodland, with far reaching views of open pasture and forest beyond. The coppiced hazel understory beneath the trees creates a secluded corner of the ancient woodland which is teeming in wildlife and covered in woodland wildflowers.
