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.

The space

We are family and dog friendly.
The hut sleeps 2 adults and 2 children. (All linen and towels provided). Additional children can be accommodated, we charge a small fee for pitching your own tent to sleep up to 4 more children. Well behaved dogs are welcome, please notify us at the time of booking, a £20 fee is payable for additional cleaning.

Where you’ll be

West Sussex, United Kingdom

We are Phil and Alicia Acton, custodians of a 17th century farm nestled in the beautiful Sussex Weald near the pretty market town of Horsham.

With plenty of beautiful walks via public footpaths accessible from the farm gate and the South Downs Link just a 5 minute walk across the fields (a former railway line, now a public bridleway, cycle path linking up to the South Downs Way) we are well placed for those who enjoy the great outdoors.

We are spoilt with two charming local pubs within walking distance which have log fires burning in the winter months and are children and dog friendly.

We are passionate about our animals, the land we farm and this beautiful corner of Sussex and we invite you to share in its charm. Come and take a look around...

During your stay

We are happy to help with any advise on places to go, or dine out. If you have any queries at all don't hesitate to ask. We are usually out and about on the farm so if no-one answers the front door, give us a call on the mobile.
