Fancy a short break from the everyday? Why not get back to basics in this beautiful hand made shepherds hut located in the heart of the beautiful Kentish countryside?

The space
Set in 12 acres of beautiful Kentish countryside. This beautiful hut was designed and hand built on our family farm, it gives you a unique experience of living as our shepherds once would have done, albeit with the luxury of modern day life! So why not try a bit of 'glamping'?

The hut has a fully functional kitchen, with hot and cold water to the sink, electric hob, combination microwave/oven, fridge, toaster and kettle. Plates, cutlery, pots and pans are all supplied.

A small inbuilt table and two stools provide you with space to indulge in any tasty meals you have rustled up in the kitchen.

Heating is provided from an electric heater situated in the kitchen plinth.

A comfortable double bed to rest after a long day, with storage beneath to tuck away your suitcases. Bed linen provided.

There is a small wall mounted TV with inbuilt freeview. A DVD player can also be found in the kitchen cupboard for those of you that fancy a chilled evening in.

A separate toilet and shower room can be found on the side of the double garage in front of your parking space, towels provided.

Guests also have the use of a small bistro table and chairs for those nights when you fancy a bit of alfresco dinning

Guest access
Guests have an allocated parking space and exclusive use of a toilet and shower room built into the side of an oak framed garage. By prior arrangement guests can organise to set up there own tents, perhaps to allow you to bring children with you. As well as this please feel free to make any other requests and I will endeavour to help! Perhaps you would like to visit the lambing shed or see the combining in action!

Other things to note
Please be aware you will be staying in the countryside! The hut is located in a field, so please take the weather conditions into consideration and bring appropriate footwear.

For any supplies you may need, a small Sainsburys Local can be found in The village of Headcorn 3 miles away and is open until 10pm daily. Tenterden 15 minutes away has a Waitrose and Tesco.

Smarden, England, United Kingdom

I am the fourth generation of our family farm, where we have been since 1893. So it would be fair to say we love this area, and I'm sure you will too!

Our country pubs make for a lovely atmosphere to relax, have a delicious meal and perhaps one too many drinks! There are a couple of popular ones less than a miles walk away.

The area has plenty more to offer depending on what you're looking for.

Leeds Castle and Scotney Castle are within a twenty minute drive. With many other national trust gems not to far away.

The rare breads centre at Woodchurch is something for you animal lovers.

Perhaps golf is your sport? Chart Hills is only 2 miles away, a brilliant course designed by Nick Faldo, and my brother in law is the resident golf pro if your looking for a lesson to hone your game!

Headcorn airdrome is within walking distance, you may even be lucky enough to see acrobatic planes performing from the comfort of the hut! Or if you fancy a closer look there is plenty of space to set up a picnic or enjoy a bite to eat in the Wings Bar. The airdrome also hosts many events throughout the year which prove very popular and are well worth s visit.

Biddenden vineyards with it famous Biddenden cider is in the neighbouring village or try some wine tasting at Chapel Down Winery in smallhythe.

Explore some of the county's fantastic churches or visit some of its historic towns such as Canterbury or Rye.

For those of you that fancy a little retail therapy a trip to Mcatherglen designer oulet in ashford or blue water shopping Centre may be up your street.

I could go on forever but I'm always happy to advise if there is something in particular your are looking for.

During your stay
As with many of us, I lead a busy and hectic life, and the hours the farm demands during the busy seasons can be long! However I will always try my best to be there to welcome you and show you around! In the event I can not, the hut keys will be in a combination key safe, which I will give you the code to, there will also be a helpful handbook to help you find your way around!

We live in the farm house, not the barn conversion which is a tenanted property
