Introducing Cabins and Castles, for Fairytale Retreats on the South Coast

23 November 2021

Born out of love for the South Coast of England, Cabins and Castles offer a hand-chosen, personally-vetted selection of unusual holiday retreats that introduce discerning travellers to the very best of Sussex, Kent, Surrey and Hampshire.

Delights include a master architect-designed home, set amongst four acres of enchanting garden and woodland with a beautiful river ambling through, and a gorgeous ‘upside down’ coastal escape set right on the beach at Hayling Island… otherwise known as the “birthplace of windsurfing”.
