Cannot describe how truly wonderful Anna and Charlie’s retreat is! From the moment we booked, Anna’s hospitality was outstanding - excellent communication to help us organise the weekend. Having read previous reviews, we decided to order a hamper with food for the bbq and Anna helped us brilliantly to sort it out.
The glamping site is beautiful and secluded, located on Anna and Charlie’s farm. The shepherds hut contains the most wonderful comfy bed alongside a really cute seating area with table for eating / games and a sink and mini fridge. Outside, the wood fired hot tub is really easy to keep toasty whilst you are there (Anna kindly put the fire on the morning we stayed so that it was ready to use upon our arrival)! The bbq area was fab, with a great gas bbq (also a coal one if you prefer) and a sheltered seating area. There was another outdoor seating area with a cute chiminea on which we toasted marshmallows. Round the back of the hut is Wendy house / shed which has a well powered shower, loo and sink.
The food provided for breakfast was delicious and I would definitely recommend people to buy a hamper with steaks, burgers, sausages etc for evening meals and lunches. The food was scrumptious! Anna also provided lovely complimentary treats upon arrival including mini proseccos and delicious home baking.
The walks from the glamping area are wonderful and we went to a cute local pub for lunch one day. We booked for a 30th birthday as a treat weekend away and it ended up being the location of our engagement, a perfect spot for such a special moment.
We are very excited to return!! Thank you to Anna and Charlie for their wonderful hosting and a super weekend.
The location for the shepherds hut was lovely, tucked away up the hill from the farm. The hot tub was fantastic and so gloriously hot. It was a shame there was a problem with the water pressure and generator but Anna sorted the problems out really quickly. The food provided was of excellent quality and we enjoyed cooking it on the gas barbecue. It was wonderful sitting outside in the evening sunshine looking at the amazing view. Thank you, Anna and Charlie.
The girlfriend and I stayed at Anna's shepherd's hut to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We had the most wonderful time! Anna was a fabulous host, even ringing before hand to let us know the finer details. On arrival she showed us round. There was complementary bubbles and fresh local eggs bacon and sausages. The hut itself is gorgeous with a spectacular view! Nothing more special than sitting in the hot tub with bubbles looking out over the countryside. Would highly recommend.
From very first booking enquiry through to the moment we left, Anna was the perfect host and we cannot thank her enough for making our weekend as perfect as it could be- despite the rainy weather!
Every detail at The Hut is thought out- from fluffy white towels and dressing gowns to delicious home baked treats for you to enjoy during your stay.
I booked the hut for a weekend away from London with my boyfriend and his 15 year old Jack Russell and we spent the weekend cooking on the BBQ, keeping the fire going in the wood burning hot-tub and going for walks in neighbouring fields & woods.
I would recommend pre-ordering one of Anna's hampers, which are excellent value for money and provide you with everything from fresh farm eggs and sausages, to steaks & burgers for the BBQ as well as cheese, wine, home baked bread and much more.
We will most definitely be returning when the warmer summer weather arrives, and we are so pleased to have found such a lovely hide-away less than an hours drive from our London home!
We had a lovely break away at Frenches Farm. It’s so secluded you feel like you are away from
Everything and everyone. All you have to do here is relax and take in the beautiful scenery. Anna the host is excellent, very kind and caring and makes you feel
So welcome. Nothing is too much trouble.
The food was delicious, all fresh produce and the walk we had in the woods to the local pub was great too. The hot tub is lovely morning or night time. Thank you Anna for making our special break away perfect. Will be back to visit you again soon . Richard and Sarah. Xx
My husband, dog & myself had an absolutely wonderful 2 night say at Frenches Farm.
Anna couldn't do enough for us and we arrived to homemade bread, jam & biscuits. Along with fizz & local produce for breakfast.
The hot tub was amazing to lay back in and stare at the stars with a glass of wine whilst surrounded in snow!!
We were warm and snug in the amazingly comfy bed in the shepherds hut.
Can't wait to stay again!
We had the most wonderful welcome from Anna who had gone to so much trouble to make everything look beautiful on arrival. From freshly baked bread to a fridge full of lovely goodies we felt completely spoilt by it all. The hot tub is such a treat, perfect addition for our romantic night away.
The view is simply stunning too.
I couldn't recommend staying here highly enough!
