Shepherd's Hut - Sleeps 2

This cosy, green-painted shepherd’s hut, named after our wild herd of Exmoor ponies, is situated in the middle of ancient woodland which is a carpet of bluebells in spring, and full of birdsong.

The door opens onto the sunny south, with a covered veranda and outside chairs.

The interior is ingeniously constructed using reclaimed timber. There is ample storage space underneath the bed for luggage. An antique wooden table with table flaps and two antique wooden chairs provide convivial seating space inside the hut.

The ‘Hobbit’ wood-burning stove has a glass door so you can watch the flames, with a stove-top kettle and a Bialetti coffee-maker.

The double bed is 5ft wide x 6ft long – suitable for most adults - and situated at one end of the hut, surrounded by three walls, making it cosy and warm on even the chilliest of nights. However we suggest taller guests might be more comfortable in a full length king-size bed in one of our tents.

The bed has a luxury natural fibre mattress, feather duvets and four down pillows, pure Egyptian cotton bed-linen, and colourful recycled wool blankets.

Lighting is provided by a battery hurricane lamp, two bedside reading lights, and a candle lantern.

Outside, the hut has its own upcycled fire-pit and barbeque grill, with two hardwood outside chairs.

"Second time back to Knepp this summer and truly, truly wonderful! With amazing landscaping, beautiful and interesting ideals and the perfect place to enjoy a short jaunt away from Brighton. I will most certainly be back again!"
