Conies farm Shepherd's Hut

Shepherds hut -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
West Grinstead, West Sussex, England
The Shepherd's Hut, nestled in the beautiful Weald of Sussex is a perfect bolt-hole to escape the bustle of everyday life. Slow down to nature's pace and reconnect with the great outdoors on our working farm.

We have just one hut for one important reason...escapism!
Exclusively yours for the duration of your stay, the 3/4 acre orchard paddock is your own private playground, overlooking woodland and pasture, a place to unwind with only the cows for neighbours, and maybe the odd chicken or two.

The Shepherd's hut has all the mod-cons you could want to ensure your stay in the country is comfortable...en-suite shower room...fully fitted kitchenette, central heating, wi-Fi and a dining hut adjacent with an outdoor log burning stove for that authentic campfire experience under the stars.
We are family and dog friendly. The hut s...

This was our third stay at the shepherd's hut which should speak for itself. Everything is provided for your comfort and relaxation. We highly recommend trying the produce from the farm itself which you can arrange with Alicia. Our two dogs really appreciate the paddock...More

About the neighbourhood
Your own private enclosed 3/4 acre orchard, perfect to relax in, with views over farmland. This part of Sussex is known as the Weald and is dotted with timber framed houses and is known for its fertile green rolling hills, located at the foothills of the South Downs National Park.

A stone's throw away is the South Downs link... a footpath and bridleway, enjoyed by cyclists and walkers that links the coast at Shoreham-by-Sea with Guildford in Surrey.

The coast is a 35 min drive away, With beaches such as Brighton, Burlington Gap and The Witterings easily accessible.

Horsham is a bustling market town with good shopping and historic charm with its 15th century timber framed buildings along the Causeway near St Mary's church.
Getting around
A car is desirable, but we find that once guests arrive, they leave it parked happily and venture off on foot or by bike to explore the lovely countryside. We have footpaths from the farm gate with walks to our local pubs so walking boots are a must!

We are tagged with a marker on google maps so this is the best way to navigate to us. Other satnavs seem to take people to the top of the hill some 200 metres away at Belmoredean stables. With Belmoredean on your left hand side follow the road downhill, we are the second driveway on the right on a tight bend.
