Shepherds Hut


Blissful return to simple living


Positioned in the farm’s prime location with astounding sunset views from your double bed, this is as good as ‘camping’ gets. 

We provide all you need for a few tranquil days and superb sleeping... luxurious cotton bedding, cooking facilities for soups and simple meals, victorian washing experience (!) candles, shepherding history books..

Bring your own: Toothbrush and Joy

The hut is for 1 - 2 adults but can also accommodate one child under 5  if you don’t mind a squeeze (add £40/w).

Great Pub Walks for delicious lunches and dinners:

Royal Oak Poynings 2 miles   Stunningly good food!   Jack and Jill Pub Clayton 1.5 miles.. good new chef                                         New Inn Hurstpierpoint  2 miles                                Ginger Fox - 2.5 miles     

Or a mile down the road is The Plough with a fine risotto and a huge range of other goodies..


PS  If someone looking like this comes knocking and claims it’s his hut, apologise when you tell him he’s in the wrong century.  Don’t show him your iPhone to prove it, he’ll think you a mad alien.  He’d have a point.

Fri-Sun in summer: £176 

£65 each extra night - please contact us by email 

We are trialling longer stays to encourage more settled enjoyment of the exquisite space - do ask!

With a surreal double-glazed 20C window facing west the sunsets are divine..
