Glamping & Camping in Bodiam, East Sussex

Unplug and relax on our family-friendly, eco-glamping and camping site. We’re off-grid, wifi free, with no noise or light pollution. Bliss!

Stay in handbuilt shepherd’s huts, nestled amongst ancient woodland, or in our riverside campsites on our peaceful family farm.

Our onsite cafe, The Hub, has a menu full of locally sourced deliciousness, and hampers available for campers and glampers, plus pizza nights every Friday.

Go wild swimming or hire a paddle board or kyak. Walk to Bodiam Castle and the local pub. Hop on a steam train. Or just relax in front of the campfire and enjoy the countryside.

Our site is managed with the aim of having the lowest environmental impact and you’ll be immersed in a truly biodiverse habitat. A rare experience nowadays!

As we actively protect local wildlife we don’t allow dogs in the campsite or Shepherd’s Hut areas. But they are very welcome in our cafe, The Hub.


Handbuilt by Nick here on the farm, in the tiny village of Bodiam in East Sussex, our beautiful huts are sited in sunny glades in the ancient woodland we have been rewilding since 2008.

Each hut sleeps up to five people and comes fully-equipped for your stay.

Based on the idea of an old Shepherd’s hut, what makes them unique in today’s market is that (in true agricultural fashion) they are built using reclaimed, recycled and locally sourced materials wherever possible. 

Sorry, no dogs!


Bring your own tent or campervan (no electric hook-up), or hire a beautiful pre-pitched bell tent. 

Our quiet riverside campsites have wash huts and private fire pits, and plenty of room in glorious countryside.

If you’re looking for more than five pitches, contact us directly to make a group booking.

What our visitors say...

"...we had a fabulous holiday with you recently, thank you. I'm just coming out of 'shielding' and this was a chance to have some precious time with some of my close family before going back to work, to my favourite job in the world, being a midwife. We stayed in two of your lovely Shepherd's huts in a very quiet and peaceful woodland. The huts were cosy, comfy and clean. It worked so well, grown up siblings being close but not too close together and the grandchildren had such fun scampering around and just playing. We even paddled, swam and kayaked up the river. Of course we were very lucky with the weather but I imagine the Shepherd's huts would have their delights at all times of the year."

"Hand-built by farmer Nick on a farm in the tiny village of Bodiam, the Original Hut Company’s shepherd’s huts are made with reclaimed timber and locally sourced materials..."
"Sustainable huts based on a little farm in East Sussex. You can choose from rustic old-school camping, or pretty glamping that comes with all the ‘trendy pieces’ glamping is attached to, like chalkboards and bunting..."
"The eight shepherd’s huts of 200-acre Quarry Farm would ordinarily steal the show – wood-burners, custom-built beds and locally crafted kitchen fittings show impressive attention to detail..."
"This secret, shady glade near an old castle may sound like the stuff of legend, but Hop Pickers Wood is no fantasy. Guests will not be given the site's exact location until a reservation is made, but let's just say it's not far from Bodiam Castle, hidden about half a mile down a private track. There's a sheltered area with an open fire, which makes it ideal for communal gatherings – in fact, the whole tree-fringed site is perfect for groups seeking privacy and seclusion..."
"When developing their boutique campsite they recycled old caravans to build beautiful and original huts, allowing them to offer ‘Staycations’ with a modern eco twist. They illustrate perfectly that it’s quite possible to make the most of what you have, think about your unique selling proposition, build a successful business and brand, and yet still manage to remain earth friendly and sustainable. This is what Anna had to say..."
