The Original Hut Company is based in Bodiam, East Sussex. We offer glamping and camping in a beautiful woodland surrounding. In a bid to continue to preserve the woodland as well as provide useable accommodation we have been careful to use local and recycled products wherever possible throughout the build. We are a 10 minute drive from Robertsbridge and an ideal base for walkers who want to explore High Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Glamping Huts: Currently we have two hut sites. each site has five huts; two of which offer living accommodation for up to 4 people, two further living huts are 5 berth. The 5th hut is the wash hut
The huts themselves are built on recycled caravan chassis, the roofs are made from an old corn bin many of the windows and doors are reclaimed. Much of the timber used for the flooring and worktops was sourced on the farm, from trees that fell in the 1987 storm.
The low voltage lighting runs from a solar panel mounted on each hut, and provides enough light for comfortable usage, but not enough to cause any real light pollution. The heat is generated from logs, which are sourced from a sustainable coppicing programme around the farm as well as the pruning’s from our cider orchards, which would otherwise be considered a waste product.
Camping: We have 3 beautiful campsites available at Quarry Farm. Hop Pickers' Wood Campsite is sited in a little wood not far from The Huts which houses 15 pitches. It provides a secluded site with a unique Hop Pickers' Cook House. A communal covered space complete with open fire, great for cosying in on a rainy evening. A shepherd's hut houses 2 loos, 2 piping hot showers and washing up facilities.
The Poplars and Udiam are nestled in a little wood by the River Rother with stunning views of Bodiam and the Castle. Poplars has 15 pitches and Udiam has 10 pitches. Facilities are the same as Hop Pickers' Wood with 2 loos, 2 piping hot showers and washing up facilities in a shepherd's hut, and a communal covered area in case the weather doesn't behave!!
We are able to hire out Udiam in its entirety for group bookings and it can accommodate up to 30 people, great for birthdays or big family weekends away! Please note this has a 2 night minimum on weekends and 3 nights on bank holidays.
