A sustainably built off-grid escape awaits you in East Sussex. Inspiring design throughout with maximum space, peace, and comfort in every room.

glamping with stunning design


Designed by the team behind Skoolie Stays, The Vacationist follows a similar design ethos, balancing luxury, freedom and environmental impact to create a space that is sensitive to its surroundings, full of clever design ideas and a joy to relax in.


Going green does not mean compromising on standards. Solar power, hi-tech devices, sheep’s wool insulation and a green roof mean you can still use devices, keep cosy and warm, enjoy hot showers and cook dinner with minimal impact on the planet.

luxury glamping woods


Enjoy a campfire, sit under the stars, listen to the birds and explore the great outdoors. Then retire to your spacious cabin, sink into the sofa to enjoy the log burning stove, have a hot shower and sleep in a comfortable bed. This is glamping at its best.
