Revive your soul with a midwinter wilderness retreat at The Cabin

Midwinter is the season of rejuvenation, an opportunity to recharge the batteries and reconnect with ourselves. We’ve created a collection of wellness experiences that will inspire your mind, body, and soul – helping you curate your very own restorative nature retreat in West Sussex this winter.

Get back to basics

Immerse yourself in nature, escape any unnecessary distractions and calm your mind.

Stray from the beaten path and discover The Cabin – an enchanting, timbered hideaway for two, burrowed away in 65 acres of Sussex woodlands.

A stone’s throw from the charming village of Billingshurst, with a newly installed hot tub for two, The Cabin is idyllically placed for a wellness retreat.

Embrace the wilderness

Wake up to the twitter of birdsong amid the soothing presence of the forest glades. Instantly feel your stress drift away.

If you want to venture out from the cocoon of The Cabin, the great outdoors is awaiting, right on your doorstep.

Don your hiking boots and explore the South Downs National Park, which can be accessed via a direct path from the Cabin.

For a faster pace, hire a bike from Southwater Cycles, and explore the serene Wey and Arun canal path, trailing through miles of serene Sussex countryside.

Connect with nature’s source and learn the art of bushcraft with resident expert Clive. Or, go foraging for ingredients in the wilderness with Fern.

Thrill seekers wanting to try cold water swimming can take the plunge with a Wim Hof experience.

When it’s time to unwind, indulge your senses with a dip in The Cabin’s secluded outdoor hot tub, then wrap up warm, and toast marshmallows on the firepit.

Feed your mind and body

Take advantage of the limited wi-fi and switch off from the outside world for some well-earned rest. The Cabin is the ideal setting to curl up with a good read or take some time for peaceful reflection.

If you’re heading out on a winter’s walk, why not take a flask of homemade soup. We love Jamie Oliver's hearty minestrone soup recipe, which goes deliciously with a generous slice of crusty bread.

Just a ten-minute drive away you’ll find Westons Farm Shop, brimming with local produce, from award-winning Sussex cheeses to homegrown fruit and vegetables.

You might prefer to venture into nearby Kirdford for a cosy winter supper at The Half Moon, where you can tuck into warming seasonal classics such as roasted pork belly with winter greens.

As night falls, back at The Cabin, fire up the wood burner and retreat to the mezzanine to gaze at the starry winter sky.

Nurture your Soul

The wilderness of The Cabin might inspire you to find your own inner balance, whether that’s through mindful meditation or some gentle yoga.

Why not try a private yoga session in the calming environs of The Cabin with the wonderful Saara Vance.

If you’re looking to surprise your loved one, then this romantic luxury bolthole has the perfect ingredients.

Feast on sumptuous luxury picnic hampers delivered to The Cabin, or sip on bubbles in the hot tub, as the sun dips amongst the forest glades.

Unwind at The Cabin with pampering spa treatments or indulge in a private massage. The possibilities are endless.

For the most idyllic midwinter retreat West Sussex can offer, then look no further than The Cabin.
