The Shepherds’ Hut (New for 2015!)

Our Plankbridge shepherd’s hut provides an ideal romantic getaway for couples looking to escape to the East Sussex countryside that don’t quite do camping!

It is beautifully equipped with everything you will need for a memorable, comfortable relaxing stay. There is a full-sized double bed made up with fresh linen.  The micro kitchen  includes a small sink with running water, smev oven, china crockery, kitchen and cooking utensils.  The wood burning stove,even on the chilliest of nights will keep you toasty warm and the views from the stable door overlook our beautiful buttercup field.Cupboards under the bed provide ample storage for any of your belongings and there are two chairs and a let down table by the double window overlooking the field.

Our new for 2015 environmentally friendly compost toilets and gas fired hot showers will ensure you have as comfortable a stay as possible.

Outside and under the unspoilt sky, it is a perfect spot for a barbecue, or campfire in your pre dug fire pit, listening to the sounds of the countryside.

The shepherd’s hut was traditionally used in the 19th and 20th century by shepherds during sheep raising and lambing. They were also used while moving flocks around for “natural fertilizer” purposes. The hut new for 2015 built by Plankbridge based in Dorset replicates the shape and look of its authentic Victorian origins as a shepherd’s shelter, but now includes the modern elements and detailing for a taste of luxury camping.

PRICES: £60 per night
