Children and dogs welcome
Families should be able to holiday during school holidays at no extra cost so our prices are simply in two seasons: winter and summer.
Having two dogs of our own, we welcome dogs coming on holiday with you to our shepherds huts in Kent. Sadly, due to damaged bedding I must now request a fee of £20 for one dog and £25 for two and an extra £50 refundable bond if staying in the valley hut. At the end of the tax year any monies not spent on damage will be donated to a dog charity.
no dogs on the beds, bring dog towels and poo bags.

Hot water, hob and oven run by gas. LED lights and fridge run by solar power. There is a cosy wood burner to keep you warm. All wood supplied. The shepherds huts are set in stunning locations. One in a 10 acre private woodland and the other on the valley hillside with beautiful views. Our huts are aimed at people who want a wild tranquil escape. They are 1/2km away from the nearest road and dwelling.
The woodland shepherds hut is set in a sunny glade with mature oak trees. During the spring, anemones, orchids, primroses, bluebells carpet the woodland floor. The woodland hut sleeps 2 adults and 2 young children.
The valley shepherds hut is set in calcareous grassland which hosts wild flowers such as egg and bacon, orchids, bluebells and cowslips. Also during May the wild broom flowers a beautiful yellow. The valley hut sleeps only a couple and baby or toddler in your own travel cot. You can relax take in the views and listen to the skylarks and buzzards above. Doggies are very welcome and will enjoy the fabulous walkies here.
