I have just been to clean the hut for this weekends guests, a family with two children who i am told are very excited and looking forward to the adventures in the woods.
The shepherds huts are sited in the most beautiful location with nature all around but lots to do on your doorstep,
We have been lucky enough to accommodate couples celebrating their anniversary, a couple becoming engaged and families enjoying much needed time together.
The sun shone, the children played, the birds sang. We spotted horses cantering past the hut, buzzards soaring in the sky, rabbits frolicking, songbirds tweeting, pheasants calling, a mass of daffodils and hidden primroses. We ate outside, danced round the fire, swung from the trees, hunted bugs with torches and fell in to our cosy beds. We woke to a pink sunrise, birds singing and absolute calm. We had cups of tea in bed looking over the fields and read ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. Breakfast was in pyjamas and welly boots. On our way home we found a ploughing match in a nearby field; a field of vintage tractors which sent our daughters into a final frenzy of excitement. A wonderful, memorable night under the clear Sussex skies and bright stars.
