Shepherd’s Hut in West Sussex: Reconnect with nature at our beautifully handcrafted hut nestled beneath the trees is rural west Sussex, where evenings are spent snuggled beside flickering flames in the special alfresco seating area.
Peace and serenity come to mind when we think of Douglas Fir… a wholesome hut quietly nestled beneath an ancient oak tree in rural west Sussex. Every inch of this bespoke hideaway has been thoughtfully created by the lovely owners, from its calming emerald green interiors to the clever design, which utilises the inside space perfectly. Douglas Fir warmly welcomes your four-legged friend, who will love to roam the lush green garden as you pour a glass of your favourite and settle into the unique alfresco seating area. Complete with cosy blankets, plush cushions and firepit to keep you nice and toasty. There is also underfloor heating in the hut, for those out of season escapes.
The hut itself invites you inside with its welcoming aura, you will feel utterly at home from the moment your bags hit the floor. In keeping with its enchanting woodland surroundings, forest green tones fill the hideaway, with pretty plants and leaf prints completing the space. The comfy double bed cleverly folds down from the wall. During the day, you can make use of the lovely dining area for a spot of breakfast or board game (should you be kept inside by the weather). As night falls, pull the bed down from the wall and drift off into a peaceful night's rest. Wake to the sound of birdsong, open the blinds and admire nature’s paradise as you sip your morning brew…bliss! The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything you’ll need to rustle up an intimate dinner for two. Including a gas hob and oven, Belfast sink, fridge, toaster and kettle. The sleek shower-room provides the perfect place to freshen up after exploring the South Downs. You are promised to feel well-rested and content after your stay at Douglas Fir.
Wander the path to reach your picture-perfect hut surrounded by lush green grass and pretty oak trees, an idyllic setting for your glamping getaway. To the left, is a little bench, perfect for getting lost in a good book in the dappled shade beneath the trees. Grab some local produce and enjoy a picnic on the grass or head into the quirky outdoor hut for a spot of alfresco dining with a touch of luxury. As the stars appear, stay snug beside the flickering flames of the firepit and reminisce on special memories with the one you love most.
