Garden of England - the Kentish countryside.
The Shepherds Huts are "Glamerous Glamping" or as the young ones say "Glamping", with a taste of luxury due to the creative use of space coupled with the use of an ensuite toilet and shower with plenty of glorious running hot and cold water
Equipped with an efficient wood burner [for the odd cold night] [wood provided] and a outside chiminare to snuggle up to for a romantic evening under the stars and the satallites fly over while enjoying the warmth .
The bed has a luxurously deep sprung mattress under fine linen sheets and pillows, shower and dry off with fluffy towels then enjoy sitting against plump cushions encouraging you to relax
No need to worry about space due to plenty of storage for bags and bits below the bed
