  • "The property was cold, smelled of damp."

    We did not stay the photo’s did not represent the the holiday home

    We are surprised to see this comment .there are THREE separate heaters in here It had just been cleaned and therefore fresh & ready to use Previous guests have described it as " Nice & Cosy " Being a warm day the heating was not put on , the door was left open for fresh air The photos absolutely do represent this property Carole came to our front door one hour after arrival to hand the keys back saying that although the hut was fine unfortunately the seats were not suitable , having just had an operation . Carole was clearly upset but agreed that she did not study the photos properly ,regarding the seating , prior to booking We wish Carole well in her post operative recovery Property Owner

  • "Hi .We had a nice time."

    As we needed a break .Shame it rained most days .But lucky we took back gammon to play as TV kept needing retuning .nice to park car close .Lovely big shower .but very tiny toilet and sink .toilet paper got wet as under sink .I bought another put on top of bin ..Lucky I took my travel hairdryer too as wasn't one .only see lady owner when we arrived. Balcony was in the shade .sun when out couple days came from back of hut .But it was nice peaceful time .We eat out so microwave combi we didn't use .

    What a shame the customer did not raise these issues as we would have been happy to resolve same . In 6 years of letting no previous guest has mentioned either of these points The sink is small and so splashing could occur and possibly wet the toilet roll . Having checked there is no water leak in this area . The WC is of course full size It is correct that this property does not have a hairdyier It can be nice & sunny on the balcony but only in the afternoon , when a lovely Sunset can be seen later on Property Owner

  • "The Hut was as described, well equipped and exactly what I was looking for."

    I had a funeral that I needed to go to which delayed my arrival, the hosts were brilliant and very accommodating, they sorted it so that I could still arrive on that day, leaving the lights on the path for me and the heating on low so that it was nice and warm for when I arrived. Listening to the rain on the roof and the wind in the trees whilst curled up reading a good book with the heating on was very relaxing and chilled out. Perfect for taking a break from my crazy life

    A handle in the shower would have been handy as my wife was a bit unsteady on her feet otherwise could fault the shepherds hut we like quirky places

    Hi Great feedback/ good idea Property Owner

  • "Hugatree is a lovely Shepherds Hut in the owners garden."

    The only real criticism we had was the fact that the area around the hut was very overgrown. Had the weather been better and we had wanted to sit outside this would not have been comfortable to do. Other than that everything was great. Good use has been made of a small space, except the very tiny washbasin in the toilet area!

    Oops Sorry for the late response and taken onboard We usually do “ no mow May “ but I also normally create pathways through that area with my mower If I hadn’t at the time you were here apologies I’ll try to do better Best regards Terry and Marie Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay."

    Very clean and comfortable. Position and Size of WC cubicle is not ideal but that's the way it is built. Perhaps a proper opening out door would help? Not much privacy.

    Hi Sorry for the late response This is what it is I’m afraid, having discussed all possibilities a concertina door was the best option, a solid door opening out would be far too wide and would restrict access to the loo Property Owner

  • "Hugatree completely lived up to my expectations!"

    Marie and Terry were the best hosts you could wish for and extremely generous. The hut had everything you could wish for and was immaculate. What to do on the day of departure was really clear and I loved the personal touch of hand written instructions in this age of technology. Hugatree is a perfect place to get away and explore all that lovely Norfolk has to offer - Thank you!

  • "Loved the hut and the hosts were great."

    Had no issues at all. A great place to relax and switch off. The surrounding areas are lovely to visit and both the hosts and the visitors' book gave lots of useful suggestions of things to do. My only slightly negative comment would be to relax the check in and check out times slightly. 5pm check in is quite late, and a 9am check out is quite early. On this occasion it worked for me, but it does mean that a lot of time is wasted/unused.

    Just checking through all comments and seeing this thought I’d reply Yes think this was ‘ post Covid ‘ Lots of extra cleaning still needed Apologies it has now been changed for some time to Arrive from 3pm. Leave by 10am Best regards Terry and Marie Property Owner

    It is exactly as the photographs show. The cabin has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is very thoughtfully designed and furnished. A beautiful place to enjoy the country side. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    We were very comfortable there, (and loved hearing the owl at night). It's in a brilliant location, not far from Swaffham and lovely beaches. Lots to see and do in the area.

  • "Hugatree is a beautiful retreat, literally just what we were hoping for."

    Our hosts, Terry and Marie were great, friendly and helpful- you could get on with your holiday and also enjoy a good chat with them at the end of the day if you wished. The hut itself was amazing, everything you could wish for, comfortable and all to a very high spec. We came purely to relax however we visited Castle Acre and had a day at Sunny Hunny- we were blessed with fabulously hot weather! Our evenings were spent on the veranda watching the sunset across the fields after having a BBQ, again, everything you need is thought of and provided. We are sad to leave our new favourite place but will definitely be coming back again. x

  • "Hugatree is a lovely place to stay, perfectly positioned for exploring Norfolk, and in a beautiful setting."

    I was the first guest to stay there, and found Hugatree very well-presented, with everything I needed, and cleverly done in such a bijou building. Terry and Marie, the owners, were very kind and attentive, and whilst there were a couple of teething issues, I am sure that these will have been sorted out, making Hugatree the cosy, comfortable, countryside retreat of one's holiday dreams. I was there in the first week of an unseasonably cold May, and think siitting on the veranda on a warm Summer's evening, sipping something cool whilst watching the sun go down over the fields, will be idyllic.

About the location


East Dereham 9 miles; Swaffham 9 miles; Fakenham 11 miles.

Litcham is a traditional, rural Norfolk village with one pub (The Bull Inn), a local butcher, a combined post office and convenience store, and a fish and chip shop. The beautiful village church, with its prominent square tower, dates back to the 12th century, though it was rebuilt to a great extent in the 15th. Litcham and the surrounding villages in the parish (particularly Beeston and Tittleshall) have a busy events calendar. Litcham Common, officially a Local Nature Reserve for over 20 years, is superb for nature lovers, bird-watchers and particularly walkers, as it sits on the Nar Valley Way, which runs all the way from East Dereham to King's Lynn. The three local towns of East Dereham, Swaffham and Fakenham are all about 10 miles away, providing access to a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Please be aware there is a £150 good house keeping bond on this property.
