The Shepherd’s hut at Hare Farm is set in Chestnuts Field, sheltered by a copse and looking out over a lake with far-reaching views down the Brede Valley.

The hut was built by Plankbridge based in Dorset who care deeply about quality and heritage. It replicates the shape and look of its authentic Victorian origins as a shepherd’s shelter, but now includes the modern elements and detailing for a taste of luxury camping.



Very few shepherds hut holidays are based on a working farm, with sheep all around, and with only the one shepherds hut in the field. Too often there are several huts and not a sheep in sight.

The hut at Hare Farm sleeps two people (minimum one adult). One child who is 5 or under may sleep on the hut floor, at an additional cost of £10 per person per night.
