Welcome to 2018 and our Shepherds Huts - South East

Janis and Alastair warmly welcome you to come and stay for your holiday time,  weeks, - weekends -  or  simply short breaks in one of our  beautiful, homely and spacious authentic Shepherds Huts situated on an idyllic family farm in one of the most peaceful parts of Kent.

Come and be welcomed in with freshly baked cakes and be provided with an English breakfast -  including local made sausages each morning for you to cook when ever you decide to rise.

All you need to bring is yourself and your preferred company and enjoy a relaxing time

Wake up to the songs of birds, see the soring Kestrals, Herons and if you are lucky you might see the Barn Owls as they swoop around in the dusk looking for prey.

Enjoy the picturesque veiws of the gently rolling countryide, set amongst a variety of local villages, each with their own unique pubs, restaurants, historic houses and gardens[ and with pleanty of local footpaths and country sports] one is guaranteed to have a wonderful time exploring surrounding areas or simply relaxing in the peace and quiet experience of the

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

The shepherds huts "Hop" & "Strawberry" are identical in construction and both sleep two adults.

Each hut is stocked up with tea,coffee, milk and sugar throughout your stay.

Our Farm

Set on a working livestock and arable farm in the area triangled between the beautiful villages of Bethersden, the haunted village of Pluckley and historic village of Smarden - all set deep in the Garden of England.

We are close to the Cinque port town of Tenterden and the towns of Ashford, Cranbrook  and  Rye 

Come and share the peace and quiet in the beautiful countryside of East Kent - yet  only about 40 minutes from London or 40 minutes to Dover, Canterbury, Rye and Maidstone.

The huts interiors are non-smoking areas

We do not accept pets - as we have farm dogs and our farm animals graze the field nearby and may not accept a strange animal in their "patch". We also strongly respect  our clients concerns regarding allergies to pets
