This rustic wagon offers the chance to experience four unique buildings within one idyllic spot in ancient woodland which comes to life in Spring with a sea of bluebells. Great for couples who relish a degree of seclusion.

Perfectly situated in the pretty village of Pett, in the heart of the 1066 countryside with spectacular views across the Sussex countryside and out to sea makes this a great escape for couples. An ideal location for keen walkers who can take advantage of numerous footpaths that lead straight from the front door through woodlands and along the Coast, and with two village pubs, a tearoom, and a local butcher, all within walking distance from the property you can easily leave the car at home. Just a short drive away is the beach at nearby Pett Level, an ideal spot for bird watching or to see the unique petrified forest. Hastings Old Town is also nearby, full of restaurants, independent shops, coffee shops and traditional seaside entertainment.

This unique accommodation comprises of The  Woodland Wagon which has been lovingly hand built by the owner, a 1940’s Showman’s Wagon, Summer House, Piano Room and a large former Gumbo tent that was featured in the film ‘King Arthur’ and now offers a private space for contemplation, yoga or tai chi.

Entering the Woodland Wagon into the open-plan studio area you are greeted with spectacular woodland views, two comfy chairs, a dining table, and a Smart TV. The kitchen area has all you need to cook a light meal or whip up a snack with a combi microwave oven and electric hob and fridge with ice compartment. After a busy day exploring the local area retreat to the king-size bed for a comfortable night’s sleep. Completing the inside of the wagon is a vanity basin and just a few steps away outside there is a shower room with shower and separate WC.

Heading outside into the heart of the woodland you will find woodland walks in abundance. Just a few metres from the Woodland Wagon you will find an outdoor seating area and a fire pit for barbecuing. Next to this is the spectacular Gumbo tent with its own log stove and twinkly lights, it is an ideal private space for yoga, tai chi or just relaxing and listening to the sounds of the woodland. A short walk away across the driveway you will find the Piano Room with a piano and wood burner, a great place to curl up with a book.  Continuing along the woodland path leads you to the beautiful 1940's showman's wagon which has a wood burner for those chilly days and spectacular countryside and sea views from the decked seating area.  Heading back down the driveway towards the Woodland Wagon you will find the Summer House where you have use of the commercial pizza oven, camper roast master and an additional fridge.

My partner and I enjoyed a very quirky and relaxing week-long stay at The Woodland Wagon. The surrounding area (immediate and further walking distance) was beautiful, and short drives took us to numerous lovely beaches and towns. The owners were on hand to assist with any queries or advice on local sites or amenities, but were not in any way imposiRead moreng, and could not have been nicer. Hide

We loved this unique and wonderful getaway. The woodland wagon was comfortable, clean and beautifully furnished. The private woodland walk was lovely, and the tepee, showman's wagon and summerhouse meant that there are lots of different spaces for socialising, reading or meditating. The owners were welcoming and respectful of our space, but helpfulRead more when needed. The whole ambiance was restful and restorative with so many thoughtful touches, which made this a delightful stay. Highly recommended! Hide
