“Wonderful, fantastic, super, idyllic and so much more”
Reviewed 2 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My husband and I have just returned from a two night break in the Valley Hut. We were both very impressed with it. The Hut is super clean, with hot running water and a full size shower. The Valley Hut is perfectly positioned with sunshine all day, and a fantastic sunset over the Valley. There is plenty of local walks although we decided that we would stay at the Hut so that we could make the most of this fantastic experience.

We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the swing, with a glass of wine whilst looking over the Valley and watching the sunset.

Hannah is very friendly and does a fantastic job at keeping the huts clean and cosy.

We are looking forward to returning next year, and staying in the Woodland Hut.

“Idylic”
Reviewed 18 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Positioned with uninterrupted views of the surrounding farmland staying here was a treat from every angle. Peace and solitude in high comfort. Everything has been considered from tea coffee and milk waiting for you to a local OS map and torch. The fire was very cosy and sitting out on the step watching the sun go down with a glass of...well, anything, was just a treat.

“Beautiful break”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a fabulous, romantic two night stay here. We found this place just by searching for places to stay in Kent on Google. It is the most beautiful, secluded little hut on a working farm. It is small, but everything we needed was provided for us. Hannah and Mark have thought of everything! They were very friendly and on hand to help if we needed anything, but also gave us lots of privacy.

The setting is so tranquil, away from the main farm, the other hut or any road. Lots of countryside nearby to walk through and plenty of wildlife too. Inside, there is plenty of space for two people and we were impressed with the good shower and that the composting toilet wasn't a problem at all. No unpleasant smells! The only thing I would recommend taking is an eye mask as the sun is up early and the hut is very bright in the mornings!

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a special break away, it's just beautiful and has to be seen to be believed.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

“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!

“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 :-)
