“Peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed for 3 nights in the wonderful Valley Hut. It's cosy & every detail is taken care of. It is solar powered & has a gas cooker , shower & woodburner. It is ecologically minded. The views are great over a rural landscape & has easily accessible woodland for walks from the Hut. The owners are very helpful & provided milk, bread, butter, cereals, towels etc. The dog absolutely loved it (there is no livestock on the farm, so she could be off lead). We had a lovely weekend. We shall be returning!

Well what can i say about this place...quite simply, its heaven on earth.
This was our 1st time in a shepherd hut and we absolutely loved it. From the excellent friendly service provided by Hannah,Mark and their family to the idyllic setting.
We truly couldnt have wished for a better experience and for that we thank you.
We will definitely return someday.

“Pure serene bliss - perfect in every way”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I absolutely loved my stay in the valley shepherd's hut and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. I thoroughly embraced the loner in me on this stay and adored the sense of isolation and being at one with nature...beautiful birds (including birds of prey), butterflies and badgers and all manner of flora and fauna were enjoyed throughout my trip here. The hut has every facility that you require to be nice and comfortable. Owners were really lovely and extremely accommodating which was very much appreciated. Cannot wait 'til my next stay here :-)

“Excellent, idyllic getaway”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Clavertye Valley Shepherds Hut was a perfect destination for a surprise weekend away for my partner. We walked through the beautiful Elham valley, around nearby villages, and through bluebell woods. Lots of wildlife and fantastic views, but the hut itself was as much of a draw. The owners were very accommodating and the set-up there is fantastic. Highly recommended.

“Amazing boys family break in the beuitiful Kent countryside”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I take my young boys on an annual Easter break, or should I say my wife gets a break from us. I do a crazy amount of searching to ensure we all have an amazing time. Clavertye Valley Shepherds Huts exceeded all our expectations in every way. The worst part was dragging the boys off the tree swings when it was time head off back home after a dream break.

“Lovely countryside retreat”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My partner and I live in central London and love to get out into the countryside on a weekend. We googled glamping in Kent and came across the Clavertye Valley Shepherds Hut, we were sold by the description and pictures and the fact that it was only an hour and a half drive from London. I requested a booking and Hannah (the owner) got back to us quickly, she is friendly and very helpful. We arrived in the evening to be welcomed by Hannah who gave us our key and pointed us in the right direction. The hut is gorgeous! Modern, clean and just the right size. The bed was unbelievable comfortable and the shower was great. Hannah provided us with fresh milk, bread, tea and coffee which we enjoyed in the morning looking over the beautiful valley. We had a fantastic time even though we were only there for one night, we will definitely come back again and recommend to friends and family.
