Sussex is a nature lover’s paradise with 140 miles of gorgeous coastline and a fairytale castle, ancient woodland or national park around every corner. If you like your outdoor adventures with a side order of culture and gastronomy, you’re in the right place, with Brighton, Hastings and Chichester on the doorstep. Our idyllic cabins in Sussex are a tranquil antidote to the bustle of city life, but they’re only a stone’s throw from the capital. Before you know it, you’ll be toasting your escape from the throngs with a glass of award-winning local fizz.
Our cabins in Sussex cocoon you in the heart of nature with an abundance of ways to enjoy the great outdoors. Go for an invigorating wild swim, admire the views from the warmth of the hot tub, stride across the downs or stargaze by night on the deck. We personally inspect every one of our cabins to make sure they’re gloriously remote, with all the creature comforts you need to relax deeply and sleep soundly. In Sussex, you’ll find everything from a strawbale cottage and an ancient woodland wonderland to a converted dairy and a reservoir-adjacent luxury retreat.
There’s around 140 miles of coastline to this southern county – and many more treks to take through the salty sea air.
Who we are
We’re an independent travel company based in Bristol, leading the way in unique, creative outdoor holidays. Our story began in 2010 with seven places and a big dream to help as many people as possible live a life more wild. Over a decade later, we’ve got over 800 glamping spaces across the UK and Europe and we’re champions for greener, kinder travel that respects people and the planet.
Why are cabins so special?
When it’s time to stop the world and get off, book a cabin getaway. We’re not designed to live life in the fast lane, sometimes we need to slow down and smell the crisp forest air. Enjoy the simple pleasures of swaying in a hammock, cooking over a fire pit, exploring country trails and hanging out with people you love. The soul nourishing views will linger happily in the memory banks long after you return home.
Cabin holidays with Canopy & Stars
When you book a cabin holiday with us, you don’t just get a unique place to stay, you get incredible experiences in nature and the low down on the local area from our owners. We’ll tell you the best country pubs to visit, which walks are closest to your front door, the wildlife to look out for and a whole host of outdoor adventures to try. That said, if you’d rather just doze by the wood burner for a few days, more power to you.
Is Sussex worth visiting?
The quintessential English county has hidden depths beyond the rolling Downs hills, picturesque sleepy villages and sweeping sandy beaches. Sussex is at the heart of the thriving UK wine industry with soils to rival the Champagne region and over 130 vineyards (and counting). Come for the gorgeous scenery and historic castles, stay for the top notch fizz and don’t forget to sample the booming art and foodie scene with a trip to Towner Eastbourne and a few stops on the West Sussex food trail.
