About the Shepherd's Hut

While you stay

The space
Made with the help of our fabulous ironmonger called Rod from Wittersham, the hut has a lovely bathroom with a walkin shower. The bedroom has a double bed with a little clothing storage area. In the living area you can sit down read the paper, have a cuppa and look out across an orchard full of apple, pear, plum, and cherry trees. A little 'scrumping is allowed!

It's a lovely little unit where you can relax and forget yourself a while.

We had a fantastic stay in The Shepherd’s Hut. Andrew has kitted out the place beautifully, everything was of high quality and we had everything we needed (and more!). The Shepherd’s Hut was cosy and we loved the finishing touches - log burner, a lovely bathroom, comfy bed, high tech oven and even a dishwasher. The location was lovely and peaceful. I would highly recommend, one of the best AirBnB ‘s we have stayed in.

This is a beautiful shepherd's hut – immaculately decorated and much bigger than it appears in the photos. We had a very comfortable stay for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back!

We stayed for one night for my husband’s birthday and absolutely loved it! This place is stunningly beautiful, absolutely spotless and Andrew’s communication was excellent. We hope to stay again soon.“Absolutely immaculate and beautiful, thank you so much for a lovely stay 😊”

Such a beautiful, secluded place. The hut itself is the definition of cosy with the woodburner, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on and all of the furnishings and amenities for a perfect weekend. We went in November when it was cold and rainy outside but didn't hear any rattling or noises - the hut is so well put together and designed. All round just idyllic.

We had a wonderful stay in the shepherds hut. The log burner was fabulous after a long dog walk and everything was very clean and comfortable. Andrew was an extremely accommodating host and was excellent at communicating and helping when we booked it last minute! Would stay again

One of the best Airbnb's we've had the privilege of staying in! A cosy and picturesque stay only a few minutes from Rye - made a great weekend trip for us and our puppy. The stylish washroom was a highlight. Andrew was a great host and we really appreciated the birthday touch for my partner. Hard to beat!

We had such a lovely stay at Andrew’s shepherds hut - just the one night- but I had everything we could have hoped for. Beautifully fitted out in a peaceful location with just the bleating sheep in the next field for company. 😊 Perfect place for a spot of star/satellite gazing after an amble ‘home’ from the Ferry Inn about 25mins walk away
