Cosy, romantic shepherds' huts in the heart of the Sussex countryside.
Quarry Farm Bodiam East Sussex TN32 5RA 01580 830 932
Just an hour's drive or train journey from London, in the East Sussex village of Bodiam, the Original Hut Company makes for a perfect romantic retreat from the hustle and bustle of city living. It's a top choice for shepherds hut holidays, and the lovingly decorated huts are a comforting cocoon of cosiness, with wood-burning stoves to keep glamping couples warm. There are also separate huts with pristine showers and eco loos. The area is a real foodie hub, with the Michelin-starred Curlew restaurant, world renowned Lighthouse Bakery School and several decent country pubs in the vicinity, plus the site's own shop, café and meeting place, The Hub, where they also have free wifi. There are also countless food festivals nearby including Rye's famous Wild Boar Week and Rye Bay Scallop Week plus the autumn and spring harvests of the Brighton and Hove Food and Drink Festival just down the road. There are even foraging courses and a summer forest school for your little pioneers – the kids can spot woodpeckers, deer and maybe even the odd badger if they're lucky. All this, plus the fairytale Bodiam Castle just a short stroll from the site, with its magnificent panoramic views over the famous Weald. One other thing: you can rent electric bikes from the site to explore the gorgeous surrounding countryside on two wheels – something we heartily recommend.
