Big Sky Tipi Holidays

UK England South East England East Sussex

Well House, Wartling Road, Wartling, Hailsham, East Sussex, BN27 1RX

Starry nights, sizzling burgers, and your little warrior braves running wild in the nearby woods
Tipi means ‘dwelling’ in old Lakota language, though the ones you’ll stay in at Big Sky Tipis are Sioux in design. Driving down vernal Sussex lanes to the site is a wonderful culture shock; your first view of the six tents sitting in 22 acres of meadow and woodland is unforgettable and filmic – you almost expect Sitting Bull to pop up with a kola pipe in his mouth. The tipis are sufficiently roomy to sleep six and come fully furnished with a comfy double bed, beanbags, and faux-fur rugs on the floor just to add that final element of Crazy Bull authenticity. And with the fields bordered by ancient woods, you could almost be in Montana, the spiritual home of the Sioux. The canvas tipis were hand-crafted in Little Creek, Washington State, and welcome you in with a womb-like embrace and, when the sun comes out, the membrane of the canvas seems to glow with life. But we get too medicine man on you – what’s so special about the place? Run by lovely Geoff and Sarah, Big Sky has a laid-back tempo that charms you; nothing seems too much bother and everything has been carefully laid out – from the utensils in a hamper at the foot of your bed, to free-range bacon, sausages, and eggs you can buy from their farm (as well as local venison, game, and fish – subject to availability). Imagine sitting back, taking in the fresh air as the first stars emerge, the struts of your tipi striking proudly into the twilit air. Sussex? Forget it, as soon as you enter here, you’re someplace special, be it in the enchanting 12-acre wood – a favourite with the kids – or somewhere childish in your imagination.
