Blackbird Shepherds Hut is nestled on a rural estate, away from the bustle of the South East, just an hour from London.
A natural habitat for wilderness. The spectacular landscape, dark night skies and breath-taking wildlife provide a truly inspirational escape.

It is a very special place, and provides an idyllic setting for a weekend escape or simply to immerse yourself in nature and have time to hear the dawn chorus and the owls.

The space
This is perfect for those wanting to enjoy simple off grid living in a rural peaceful secluded location set in a field on its own but still well located for Lewes, The South Downs, Glyndebourne, Firle and the Ashdown Forest. It is comfy and warm but the charm is being away from the mod cons. There is a gas hot water outdoor shower, cooking is on the fire or a gas stove if preferred, reading by solar lamps and washing by candle light. The bedding is quality white cotton linen and towels are provided. Breakfast can be delivered if requested on arrival. Tea and real coffee( plus cafetière) are provided. There is a small cool box which will have ice packs and milk for the first night. Kindling, matches and the first bag of logs are provided - more logs are available for a donation.

There is a jar of marshmallows for toasting on the fire!

There is a blackboard of local wildlife sightings, and a desk which opens as a small shop with a collection of cards, notebooks and nature inspired prints by the owner who is a well established local printer(some of which decorate the hut).

Guest access
There are many walks straight from the hut around the woods, hedgerows and fields (maps are in the hut). There is a campsite near by with a small shop where you can by essentials if needed and an ice-cream. If a little treat is required there is a spa with a selection of treatments, sauna, pool and steam room within walking distance where you can purchase a day pass.

Other things to note
We have taken cleaning guidelines from air bnb to make sure the hut is free from virus. We will leave the key for you to arrive in your own time( after check in time of 3pm) and to make sure social distancing is applied.
