Ease the stresses and strains of modern life and come and stay in our luxurious hand crafted shepherd's hut. You will soon forget about your troubles as you drift off to sleep in the comfort of this unique space, thoughtfully fitted out with everything that you could need. The full size double bed is as comfortable as at home, the wood burning stove is warming and the atmosphere is romantic. This perfect hideaway enjoys an elevated position, shared only with our flock of pedigree Hebridean sheep on this 5 acre smallholding. It benefits from wonderful views of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is the North Downs of Kent. You have exclusive use of the accommodation and are free to enjoy the surrounding fields and woodland, experience life on the farm and get to know the animals. This is a perfect base for exploring the beautiful English countryside and Kentish coast, an ideal bolt hole from urban life or simply a great stop off en route to, or from, your European holiday.

"Exactly what we needed!"

We read the reviews on here and decided to give the shepherds hut a try. All I can say is that the reviews were spot on. If you have a stressful city job, then this is the place to forget it all. I ha… More

"It is an idyllic place for a peaceful weekend away"

I really enjoyed the weekend with my partner away from the busy streets of London. The shepherd's hut was beautifully designed and very well kitted out for cooking light meals. The weather was lovely too.

"So relaxing we just wanted to sleep all the time!"

We booked the shepherds hut for two nights this July. It did not disappoint. Phil greeted us and showed us exactly what we needed to know. Full tour of the little farm (piglets adorable) And he made s… More

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! You caught us in the middle of a wet and sunny growing season and are quite right to suggest that the grass around the hut should be maintained - it is usually! We have also replaced the garden furniture for new because as you suggest the old furniture had seen better days. A highlight of any trip to the farm should be spending time sitting outside in the field and we hope you will return again to do so.
