Off the beaten track nestled in the heart of the South Downs you will find Little Oldwick Shepherd's Hut; beautiful self-catering accommodation built to replicate the style of an original 19th century shepherd's wagon. The premise of the hut is to be compact but be able to suit every need for living.
Carefully designed and impeccably crafted this gorgeous wagon provides a kitchen, dining area, bedroom, seating area and bathroom all rolled into one. The comfy seating area you can see at the far end of the hut converts into a cosy sleeping area perfect for two.
This bespoke Shepherd's hut really is exquisite. The attention to detail is astounding from the carefully crafted kitchen area to the completely original hand painted mural that adorns the perfectly curved ceiling.
Kept on the owner's land you can park right up to the Shepherd's Hut and make use of the large shared garden. Make sure to keep any eye out for the free roaming web footed residents Sooty and Sweep. These friendly little ducks are very inquisitive and are sure to say 'hello' during your stay.
Set only a few miles from Chichester, Little Oldwick Shepherd's Hut is still very much set in the heart of West Sussex countryside; the perfect setting to enjoy a quiet break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Based in West Lavant, Little Oldwick is great for keen ramblers or those wanting just a short evening gander in the Sussex countryside. Only a mile and half away you will find yourself in Lavant Village, a great spot to start the many walks and trails around. Heading off from Chalk Pit lane, the old coach wagon track to London, you will get to the top of the 'Trundle' where on a clear day the view will literally go on for miles into the horizon.
Following an 8.5mile circular walk from the Trundle this stunning walk will at some points cross the Monarchs Way footpath, an interesting trail that tracks the final steps made by King Charles II as he fled from the English civil war to France in 1651. You will only want to follow part of it though as this great long footpath reaches a grand distance of 615miles crossing several counties!
There are plenty of places to go out for lunch and dinner nearby. Just a short walk across the fields opposite little Shepherd's Hut there is the wonderfully converted 'Wellies Restaurant and Tea Rooms' open seven days a week serving an extensive menu catering for all tastes.
Changing direction and heading a few miles west to quaint Funtington village you will find the intimate Michelin starred restaurant 'Halliday's' and the cosy country 'Fox & Hounds pub and restaurant' .
