  • "Brilliant stay."

    Owners met us on arrival & showed us around the hut. The facilities were excellent & the hut was lovely and warm. We able to sit outside during our stay finding it very quiet and relaxing. Whilst being in the countryside it is within easy reach of Lewes, Brighton and the coast. We would definitely recommend this property.

  • "The shepherd's hut was warm, comfortable and as well-equipped as one could expect in a relatively small space."

    We were made most welcome by the owners, and we had a lovely break despite mixed weather, which we could not complain about as after all, it was mid-March in England! Gorgeous views (when the weather allowed) and I should imagine it would be idyllic during the summer months.

    The location was perfect, and the view was amazing. We were made to feel very welcome by Ann and John and the Cream tea, that Ann made for us, was delicious. Perfect place to wind down and enjoy East Sussex at its best.

    It was perfect and the hosts Ann and John were lovely :-) I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a break from the rat race. Peaceful location but not far from Lewes and the coast. Some lovely local pubs too which do good food. Thanks for having us Mike & Belinda x
