Shepherd’s Hut in Sussex: Nestled amongst cherry trees in the east Sussex countryside is where you will find picture-perfect Jessie. She is the sweetest escape, designed perfectly for two and your four-legged friends.
If you are wishing to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life, this is the perfect retreat for you. Oozing peace and tranquillity, this lovely shepherd’s hut is full of countryside charm and home comforts. Spend a long lazy morning in bed listening to birdsong or have a picnic on the grass in the dappled sunlight beneath the trees. The wood-burner will keep you cosy on a rainy day and your beloved pooch will love roaming the outside space just as much as you will. Jessie has been lovingly created for two and is the most idyllic retreat no matter the time of year.
Meander along the path to find Jessie nestled quietly and comfortably between the crab apple and cherry trees. Totally secluded, a stay at Jessie will put your mind at ease for a little while. Step inside the bespoke hut and be greeted with a lovely open plan living space, with solid oak furnishings and countryside charm throughout. To the right sits the pretty dining area. On a rainy day, pop on the radio and play a board game. There are also binoculars and plenty of wildlife books for your use. The cosy double bed folds down from the wall of the dining area, utilising the space during the day. Light the wood-burner and enjoy a slow morning in bed, admiring sweeping views of the Sussex countryside. The spacious kitchen area is well equipped with everything you’ll need during your stay. Including an electric hob, microwave and grill, fridge, toaster, kettle and all the utensils to cook up a delicious meal for two. The shower room is an idyllic spot to freshen up after a countryside ramble or day near the coast. This comfortable retreat comes with all the little luxuries and home comforts for an utterly relaxing stay in nature.
Step outside and soak in the tranquillity this secluded paradise has to offer. With an abundance of outside space for you to enjoy, your four-legged friend will love roaming through the garden. On a long summer afternoon, have a picnic on the grass or enjoy your favourite tipple in the shaded seating area amongst the trees. From dawn till dusk, Jessie is simply a dream. As the sun disappears behind the trees and stars fill the night sky, light the fire pit and get cosy with that special someone. This charming hut is the most idyllic base from which to walk and explore the Sussex countryside. Whatever the occasion, this romantic bolthole is the perfect place to call home for a little while.
