This stunning shepherd’s hut has been beautifully designed inside and out to provide a cosy hideaway in a tranquil rural setting. Sleeping just two, this is the perfect retreat for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Short breaks from £275.

This gorgeous hideaway is located in countryside just outside the Wealden village of Benenden in Kent. Benenden is a delightful village, with several pubs, Post Office, village shop and butchers. It is within a 15 minute drive of the interesting town of Tenterden with its high street and lanes full of quirky shops and varied places to eat. Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, once home to Vita Sackville-West is within a ten minute drive and is a lovely day out for keen gardeners or those who just enjoy a leisurely walk.

This beautifully decorated traditional shepherd’s hut is glamping at its finest and makes a beautiful location for a getaway for two. The experience provided is total luxury with all logs supplied for the wood burner and fire pit. The kitchen is small, but perfectly formed with induction hob, mini-fridge, microwave and coffee machine. There is even a Butler’s sink and a wrought iron table and chairs. There is a wonderfully warming woodburner too, which makes the whole hut lovely and cosy, whatever the weather. To the rear of the hut there is a stylish and comfortable double bed with drawers under and even a hair dryer, there is no roughing it here. A window beside the bed affords views to the fields outside, but also has folding shutters to give you privacy. The en-suite shower room has a heated power-shower and WC and just like a high-end hotel, there are even fluffy bathrobes and slippers, as well as complimentary toiletries. A stable door leads outside.

The outside space here is part of the attraction, you have your own private space tucked away in a corner of the owner's immaculate gardens, including a gravelled seating area with fire pit, surrounded by fields of grazing sheep and llamas. There is parking for one vehicle.

This shepherds hut is situated on a small farm. You have your privacy but the owners are a short walk away if you need them. The hut is perfectly equipped & is very cosy. We enjoyed our time here to chill and relax in peace & quiet. Its just a few minutes drive to the local village pub and we enjoyed a very nice carvery there

Absolutely perfect. Our hosts thought of everything, homemade treats and prosecco waiting for us, lifts to thw toen and a local restaurant plus a chance to feed the sheep! I wish I could have stayed for longer! I'm hoping to be able to stay again if they will have me.

The Shepherd's Hut was small but beautifully appointed. Located close to a lovely village with a friendly pub. Our hosts were very welcoming and made sure we had lots of local information. A wonderful, relaxing retreat.

We had a superb week at the Secret Hideaway in Kent. Marriane & Tom were excellent hosts, providing an excellent welcome pack including home made cake & cookies, & provided the right balance of help & support without being unobtrusive. The cottage was ideally situated for touring the area, whilst providing an idylic &peaceful setting for a a relaxiRead moreng break. Although small the Shepherds Hut was designed & equpped to offer everything you practically needed to totally relax . Hide

The cottage itself was fantastic and cosy. It also had great access to a lot of walking trails in the area. Best of all, the communication with the owners before and during the stay was clear, reliable, and warm.

The Secret Hideaway was a breath of fresh air in every way you can think of. And yes it is as beautiful, inside and out, as in the photos! Quiet and tranquil, very comfortable bed, lovely views, all the amenities you need, great shower room, very private yet with super hosts within the grounds should you need them. If you can draw yourself away, thRead moreeres a well-stocked local shop and a pub with great food both within walking distance. Really lovely and so highly recommended. Hide

This was the perfect country hideaway with all that we needed for a weekend stay. The llamas and lambs were an added extra. The bed was super comfortable and the aroma of nespresso coffee made the morning.

Reviewed by Mr Ettinger 9th May 2016

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my stay in your shepherd hut although 1 night was too short a stay..It is the perfect place to stay to soak up the countryside and wake up to Llamas looking at you across the fence. Beautifully equipped with everything one could want and lots of hot water. We will be back soon

Rural slice of heaven...............Spent an amazing two nights in the Hut in April.
