Set in the South Downs National Park, on a quiet farm, this cosy self built shepherd, surrounded by birch trees and horse fields, is a peaceful spot for a romantic getaway. Impressive views of the south downs from the accommodation makes this a stunning setting, with plenty of gorgeous woodland walks close by, as well as links to the South Downs Way. There is also fantastic star gazing that can be seen from the shepherd hut past the canopy of trees.
“Emma’s Shepherds Hut is a perfect nature getaway spot. We had a great stay overnight and really enjoyed all aspects of it. It is not your normal stay as there are not the usual amenities (electricity, mains water) but if you are looking to get away from normal life and slow things down - this place is perfect. We went for a beautiful walk in the forest near the hut, and enjoyed cooking over an open fire in the evening. The hut has a log burner for heating and it heats the space up very effectively and very quickly. The ponies and chickens in the field close by were also delightful! I also particularly liked the composting toilet- really clean and well constructed. There is also a regular toilet and shower available for those who don't want to use the composting one. Overall - it was wonderful so thank you Emma!”

“The place is idyllic and has a magic feeling. We spent the best weekend ever, the sound of the stream and the beauty of the place is something we never experienced before. The hut has everything you wish for with all the amenities and comfort. Emma and her husband are the perfect hosts and they made us feel at home the whole weekend. They provided us with all the information we needed as well as catering for us with a delicious breakfast in the morning. They are very friendly and gave us precious information on the walks and the surrounding area . Among all places we have visited throughout England I would definitely say that this is the one which stole our heart and we would recommend to anyone looking for peace and beauty. We will definitely be back!!”

“Jan’s place is really well equipped and full of thoughtful touches and extras. We arrived on a Monday after a very long walk, no pubs in the village were serving food that evening, so we were really grateful for the microwave and other bits that are included in the room. The shower was also lovely after a long day on the South Downs. Thanks Jan :)”
