Walking up the steps & along the woodland path from the parking space, you will enter the private fenced Shepherds Hut garden. Set within the trees there is a picnic table, BBQ, reclining garden chairs & a hammock for added comfort. The campfire area has log seats to perch on while you toast marshmallows. Extra little luxuries like super-fast wifi, heated towel rail & (in winter) a heated bed blanket are there to keep you cosy & relaxed. The hut has perfect cooking facilities for glamping!

The space
Set between Burwash and Broad Oak Heathfield the Shepherds Hut in the Woods is a cute & cosy retreat.

There is plenty of wildlife in the setting including deer which seem to enjoy resting in the adjacent woodland or sunbathing in the neighbouring field!

Walking into the Shepherds Hut through the french doors the king size double bed is on your right (with heated blanket for the winter months). This can be converted into a twin bed set-up on request. The room has a small electric fire (plus a radiator during winter) to take the edge off on those chilly nights. There is an en-suite shower room with heated towel rail next to the main room.

The kitchenette is compact & well equipped, with a two burner stove & fridge, plus plenty of cookware for you to prepare delicious food. Outside there is a small BBQ for outdoor cooking (BBQ utensils provided). We provide a quick-light BBQ charcoal bag in the outdoor storage box to get you started on your first night.

We provide fresh milk (whole cows milk by default; with some notice we are happy to arrange a skimmed or a plant based milk), croissants (or a mixed fruit bowl on request), jam (vegan friendly), cornflakes & delicious Dorset Cereals for your breakfast. You’ll also find beer, tea, instant & ground coffee by the stove plus Nespresso pods, herbal teas, hot chocolate (vegan friendly), sugar, salt & pepper in the fridge or cupboard.

There is a small storage ottoman next to the bed for your personal items.

A bundle of wood, some kindling & firelighters will be left in an outdoor storage box near the campfire area to get you started on your first night, along with marshmallows & toasting skewers in the kitchen.

Please let us know if you are vegan - in addition to providing a plant based milk we can also arrange vegan marshmallows and swap the croissants for a mixed fruit bowl.
