Shepherds hut
The Shepherd's Hut, nestled in the beautiful Weald of Sussex is a perfect bolt-hole to escape the bustle of everyday life. Slow down to nature's pace and reconnect with the great outdoors on our working farm. We have just one hut for one important reason...escapism! Exclusively yours for the duration of your stay, the 3/4 acre orchard paddock is your own private playground, overlooking woodland and pasture, a place to unwind with only the cows for neighbours, and maybe the odd chicken or two. The Shepherd's hut has all the mod-cons you could want to ensure your stay in the country is comfortable...en-suite shower room...fully fitted kitchenette, central heating, wi-Fi and a dining hut adjacent with an outdoor log burning stove for that authentic campfire experience under the stars.

We are family and dog friendly. The hut sleeps 2 adults and 2 children. A double bed, a single bed and a high level bunk suitable for children up to 4ft tall due to height restriction. There is a pull down double bed in the dining hut perfect for teenagers. Please note this is suitable only for the summer months as the dining hut has an open side closed off from the elements by a canvas curtain and is heated by a log burner. You will be spoilt for choice as there is plenty to do in and around the area for all ages, from motor racing at Goodwood to visiting stately homes, exploring Brighton, the Dinosaur adventure park up the road, or simply enjoying the many walks and good country pubs nearby.More

About the neighbourhood
Your own private enclosed 3/4 acre orchard, perfect to relax in, with views over farmland. This part of Sussex is known as the Weald and is dotted with timber framed houses and is known for its fertile green rolling hills, located at the foothills of the South Downs National Park. A stone's throw away is the South Downs link... a footpath and bridleway, enjoyed by cyclists and walkers that links the coast at Shoreham-by-Sea with Guildford in Surrey. The coast is a 35 min drive away, With beaches such as Brighton, Burlington Gap and The Witterings easily accessible. Horsham is a bustling market town with good shopping and historic charm with its 15th century timber framed buildings along the Causeway near St Mary's church.
Getting around
A car is desirable, but we find that once guests arrive, they leave it parked happily and venture off on foot or by bike to explore the lovely countryside. We have footpaths from the farm gate with walks to our local pubs so walking boots are a must!
