Nestled in a fantastic private rural spot in glorious Sussex countryside, and with the South Downs on its doorstep, Skoolie Stays offers a unique glamping experience in a converted American school bus.
With easy access to beautiful villages, gorgeously cosy and historic pubs and all that the South Downs National Park has to offer, Skoolie Stays is the perfect balance of quirky escapism, off-grid living and classic Sussex experience.
The Vacationist is an eco-cabin, designed and built on an old agricultural trailer. It is carbon-neutral, giving you the opportunity to experience some of the amazing eco initiatives and products that are available to those keen to reduce their carbon footprint.
Sleeps 4 - Open year round

Skoolie Stays is a solar powered luxury glamping bolthole. It has been lovingly converted and features original hand-made furniture and creative metal finishes alongside repurposed pieces of the original bus.
Nestled below the South Downs in a private meadow surrounded by ancient woodland, our idyllic location offers guests a chance to escape from it all. Close by are charming villages, country-pubs, the South Downs Way and Arundel Castle.
Hike or bike the hills and cliffs; enjoy the ambience, food and drink of the local villages; immerse yourself in seaside fun or get your heritage fix at Amberley’s open-air industrial heritage museum and Arundel’s Norman castle.
“Skoolie Stays was born out of a love of American school bus conversions. We spent an incredible year travelling 14,000 miles across 20 different states in our first school bus and when we returned to Sussex we knew we had to bring one back to show the folks back home! We can’t wait to show you the finished SKOOLIE STAYS bus. Expect comfort, surprises, tons of character, and the best location for your own Skoolie Stay!”
