The Owner Says

Shepherd's Watch is a beautifully restored original 19th-century shepherds hut situated in its own grass meadow with stunning views across our farm and the Kent Downs. We want your stay in our shepherd’s hut to be as relaxing as possible with lots of little extra touches to give a real feeling of luxury.
Our shepherd’s hut is not any ordinary glamping site. We have sympathetically restored the hut re-using as many of the original materials as possible whilst also bringing it up to the 21st century.
This has included insulating the walls with sheep’s wool, stylishly decorating using Farrow and Ball paints, luxury additions including a home-from-home en-suite shower, heated towel rail and also a handmade luxury king size bed with goose down duvet and pillows.

Nearby

Greenhill Glamping is in the heart of the Alkham Valley with its network of footpaths and bridleways. Horse riding at the Alkham Valley Community Project (07472910009) is a 15-minute walk away, while Port Lympne Safari Park (01303 264647) is a 10 minutes drive and also has great views across Romney Marsh. Walk the white cliffs after a visit to nearby Dover Castle (01304 211067) or explore the Folkstone seafront. This stretch of UK coast has seen more battles, skirmishes and occupations than anywhere else in the UK and has a bucket load of castles and abbeys to show for it. A day exploring the streets of Canterbury isn't a bad place to start for history – pop into the cathedral (01227 762862), nose around the castle (01227 378100) and, if the weather's good, rent a punt (07786 332666) for an hour on the water.

Food & Drink

You can order generously sized breakfast hampers (£15 for 2 people) with local and homemade produce delivered to the hut in the evening. Wendy can also provide excellent packed lunches if you decide to stay local (£7.50 per person). Canterbury Farmers Market runs 6 days a week in the city centre and there's also great farm shop (01304 212040) in Farthingloe. On weekends, the Folkestone Harbour Arm opens up with pop-up restaurants and live music. It's seasonal but, when running, highly recommended.
