Welcome to The Sussex House Party, a place for wilderness weddings, arty parties, writers retreats, Wild Nature kids’ camps and some serious glamping. We’ve even got a little black book stuffed with some of the best massage therapists, yoga teachers and reflexologists around so you can plan your perfect weekend away. Tell us what you’re after, and we’ll see if we can sort out your dreams.
You can hire the smallest room along with some coaching or artistic support, or a bell tent or The Big Green Bus for a glamporous night out with your mates. You can also hire the entire eight acres for your wild wedding or big party. Next year, a fabulous eco-house will be available to rent too.
The Bell Tent Village
The thing about the Sussex House Party is that you can make it all up yourself. You can mix up our bells with your campers or… you could just call in The Bell Tent Company. With bell hops and breakfast hampers, proper beds and personal touches, these guys can build you a wedding bell village for your guests. And at less then the average hotel room for much more glamour, why wouldn’t you?
Here’s how it works.
The Bell Tent Company provides a little piece of home, blended with the excitement and comfort of staying in a hotel!
From shabby chic or contemporary, bright and funky or chill out festival style, booking with us enables you to invent your own bespoke wedding accommodation.
Guests book their ‘rooms’ through your personalised wedding page using a private login. We accept all major debit or credit cards.
The tents sleep up to 5 adults comfortably so groups can share a room and keep the costs down.
Once booked, guests arrive on the day and checkin to their individually named tent with full height, queen sized air bed and bedding pack, maroq lighting, carpet, mirror, bedside box and coir door mat.
We also have phone/camera/ipad chargers, and if you’re not sure about the weather, then we have 3×3 metre awnings and chill out tents for extra room for gathering.
Traditional campfires for late night chats and marshmallow roasting can be set up for you, ready for your return (depending upon site regulations!).
Hampers crammed with late night goodies – these can be hand built, with guests providing contents ideas for the individual touch.
Ultimately, if you can think it, we’ll do our best to do it!
The Big Green Bus
This 1982 west midlands metro bus has been converted into an amazing space that sleeps 6 people comfortably, a full size kitchen and lounge downstairs with a log burner, the lounge turns easily into a dining area and there's also a toilet and wet room.
Upstairs you have 3 bedrooms, two full size doubles and one bunk bed room, at the topfront of the bus is a chill out space, ideal to sit with a glass of wine and take in the view!
There's no getting away that you are on a bus, alot of the bus fittings have been re-used throughout the quality conversion, this makes it a fun and original place to spend your holiday or short break.
We can offer welcome hampers of organic fresh produce or a bottle or two of local wine for your arrival should you want them, all from local independent suppliers, just click on the 'contact us' with your requirements and we will be happy to price this up for you.
