The Shepherd’s Hut

Historically, shepherds’ huts were originally designed as a mobile shelter for shepherds guarding their flocks and nursing sick lambs on cold nights; traditional shepherds’ huts were a crucial part of Britain’s agricultural history. Back in those days, your average shepherd’s hut was usually a rather basic affair; the ‘Secret Hideaway’ in Benenden is a world away from those cold draughty shelters, having been kitted out in total luxury. It is fully insulated and double-glazed with a cast iron wood stove as well as electric heating, making it warm and cosy all year round, whatever the weather!

The Secret Hideaway is delightfully light and airy and comprises a small kitchen, breakfast/dining area and seating in front of a warming log-burner. A supply of logs is provided. The kitchen area has a small induction hob, mini fridge, Nespresso coffee machine and microwave. There is a Butler’s sink with plate rack above and a wrought-iron table and chairs.

The pretty bedroom area has a sumptuous double bed with quality cotton linen, either a summer or winter duvet and a window fitted with wooden folding shutters for additional privacy. There are drawers under the bed for storage, a hairdryer, and wooden hangers. The newly appointed en-suite shower room boasts a power shower, WC and basin and heated towel rail. Large fluffy towels, bathrobes, complimentary hair and body gel, shower cap and even your very own pair of slippers are all provided.

A stable door leads to an outside garden area with a table and chairs, and a charcoal BBQ overlooking the grazing sheep and llamas – The perfect spot for relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book!

There is a standard Welcome Pack provided which contains milk, bread, butter, small jar of jam or honey, and a small bottle of wine or apple juice. However, the owners can provide a ‘Special Basket’ for an additional charge and by prior arrangement, comprising of local sausages, local free-range eggs, Swaylands Barn own honey, smoked salmon and even some ‘bubbles’ from the local vineyard.

Additional Amenities

Wi-Fi available, radio, hairdryer, selection of books and board/card games.

Location description from owner

The England region

Just 12 miles along the coast is Hastings, with its artists community, delightful old town, fishermans' huts, funicular railway, Smugglers Adventure and seaside pier. For the odd rainy day there is Clambers Indoor Play Centre and The Blue Reef Aquarium. For a more educational trip, visit the site of The Battle of Hastings in the aptly named Battle, a delightful market town with the English Heritage site of Battle Abbey where King Harold fell and history changed forever.

On the opposite side of the River Rother lies Rye Nature Reserve - just perfect for a walk or cycle along its flat paths towards Winchelsea. Discover Camber Castle, one of Henry VIII's coastal forts on your way and look out for any number of bugs, beetles, reptiles and birds.

Benenden

Camber Sands is one of the great beaches of the world, let alone England. Its five miles of golden sand are backed by traditional dunes straight from central casting. Whether you're looking for simple days on the beach, exploring castles, cycling or walking in Kent and East Sussex or even kite and windsurfing, it's all there. And when you're hungry, there's something for everyone from fish and chips to the gastronomic delights of some great local pubs and restaurants in Rye, Winchelsea, Hythe, Tenterden and beyond. If you're cooking yourself, there's fantastic local produce including fish fresh off the Rye fishing fleet and award-winning wine.

When you want to get the sand out from under your toes, pop into Rye, a town in a rather pleasing time-warp. Wander through the maze of lanes, taking time to browse around the many and varied shops selling everything from old fashioned sweets weighed out of jars to hand blown glass. Climb the tower in the Church and enjoy fabulous views across Romney Marshes, stop for a cream tea, buy some fish straight off the boat, relax and let life take you by the hand.
