Meadowsweet is one of two extra-large, luxury Shepherds huts nestled into the bottom of the owner's beautiful country garden, overlooking miles of open countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Measuring 6m x 2.4m, there's plenty of room for a super-comfortable kingsize bed, a kitchenette with mini oven/grill and 2 ring hob, a seating/dining area and a luxury shower room. Outside there's a little patio with a bistro set and recliners. Access to shared garden with BBQ and hot tub.

Помещението
Tucked away down a little lane with trees meeting over the top in places, 15 minutes walk from the charming Sussex village of Herstmonceux, nestle Meadowsweet and her sister hut Heartsease. Designed to be the perfect antidote to the stress of modern urban life without sacrificing any of its creature comforts or modern connectivity, they enjoy uninterrupted views across an area of outstanding natural beauty and still have very civilized bathroom arrangements, TVs, strong fibre optic wifi and reception.

Please not that due to Covid 19 restrictions (we are currently in Tier 4) we are NOT ALLOWED TO HOST HOLIDAY GUESTS. We can accept guests traveling for work, education or health reasons, people self-isolating or shielding, moving house or attending funerals and a few other reasons. You also need to check it's legal for you to travel. Please see the screenshots of the Tier 4 guidance from the gov.uk website in the photos for the complete list of allowed reasons and only enquire if you meet the requirements and can prove it. The minimum stay is 3 nights and there is a 20% discount on stays of over a week. The hot tub is closed until the restrictions are lifted.

Horses clop down the lane and the air is filled with bird song. At night you can hear owls. There is a farmer along the lane who has equipment in use and large vehicles during the week sometimes so it's more reliably peaceful at night and weekends. There's a private patio especially for you and a deck with a shared hot tub and a much larger shared patio with a built-in barbecue and seating which you are welcome to use. Should you require a bottle of chilled champagne on arrival this can be arranged with the owner.

Newly built and finished to a high standard, the huts offer a level of comfort far beyond what might have been available to a shepherd in times gone by. Much bigger than a traditional hut, each has more than enough room for the king-size bed which has a 3000 pocket sprung mattress topped with memory foam, goose feather/down duvet and pillows, high quality linen, a deliciously super-soft blanket and a sumptuous array of cushions to lounge on whilst you drink in the magnificent view.

Guests must be happy with committing to 2m distancing and participating in our new hygiene regime by using the products provided. On top of Airbnb's cleaning protocol, both huts and the treehouse are being periodically electrostatically deep-cleaned, which sanitises every nook and cranny and leaves a protective film on all the hard surfaces that keeps killing germs, bacteria and viruses as long as you don’t clean it off with other products. Guests need to commit to only using our cleaning and sanitisation products indoors because they top up the protective layer rather than removing it. It’s fine to use your own products on yourself if you prefer. We are also running an oxygen generator (which kills everything including viruses) between stays.

From the gate on the driveway, Meadowsweet is the first hut you come to and dominates that area of the garden overlooking the fields behind it, which are often occupied by sheep or horses. The windows in Meadowsweet are panoramic - the only obstruction is the back of the other hut to the far right which has no windows looking onto you and vice versa, but basically it's a full widescreen vista along the front of the van. There are fairy lights around the bed for night time and large bunkers with lids for your things at the end of the bed that can also be somewhere to put a cup or plate on if you're sitting there. Unlike some huts, our beds are normal height and fixed in position, so there is no need to rearrange anything before going to bed or climb to get there. There is ample room for suitcases underneath, as well as a bedside cupboard and hooks with proper wooden hangers by the door and hooks in the bathroom.

Meadowsweet has a table and chairs in the main body of the hut and a wifi router with a LAN port next to the table ideal for laptops. Opposite is the kitchenette, which has a small fridge, a sink and a small tabletop oven/grill with a two-ring stove on top. It's equipped with pans, crockery, cutlery, utensils and basics such as cling film, foil, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, olive oil, mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup and seasoning. It's also got tea, coffee, sugar, herbal teas, a kettle and a cafetiere. There's a flat screen TV with Freeview which can be angled towards the dining area or the bed and a wifi router with a LAN port, ideal for homeworking.

Opposite the door there's a rocking chair ideal for admiring the view through the door/reading/strumming an instrument/snoozing by the little electric flame-effect stove which provides a warm glow and variable heat in winter as well as cool air in summer. The hut also has an oil-filled radiator by the foot of the bed which can be left on all the time in winter, making it much nicer, cleaner, quieter and safer to sleep in than having a real fire or fan heater running all night whilst ensuring you'll wake up warm and cosy. The huts are very thoroughly insulated to keep them warm in winter and cool in summer.

To the left of the front door is an ensuite shower room with hot and cold water, big fluffy towels, soap and shower gel/shampoo and a proper, flushing toilet. Because the huts are elevated off the ground and pointed towards the fields, you can see the beautiful view but nobody can see you, so you have a loo with a view :)

Outside Meadowsweet there's a little private patio and an area of garden which has been recently landscaped and laid to turf and borders with a lot of flowering shrubs and bulbs. There is a folding metal bistro set which can be set up on the patio or two zero gravity recliners which can be stored under the huts or left out as required. There's a stepping stone path across to the bigger communal patio with dining furniture and built in BBQ and campfire area. Beyond this is a garden gate to the driveway and a building housing the owner's art/healing room and above, Treetops, another holiday home with a treehouse balcony. To the right of Treetops, across the garden is a shared deck with a hot tub which is fully heated and available all year round and, like the rest of the garden, looks out directly onto the countryside. It really is bliss! Behind that is the main house and owner's lawn and veg plot which is not fenced off for aesthetic reasons but guests are asked not to go beyond the hot tub deck. We encourage guests to feel welcome in the shared spaces and avoid going very near each others' front doors, none of which overlook each other.

If you'd like to use the hot tub, you can book an exclusive time slot at least once per day NB. only if government restrictions allow and it is shared, very public and for therapeutic use only. Please shower first - no makeup/lotions/food/drink/smoking (it's inflatable) and please don't go in if you're ill/alone/drunk/pregnant/there's a storm/it's already occupied (unless you know each other and have agreed) or after midnight/before 9am (so as not to disturb one another - if one party books all three properties they can use it together whenever they like). Max 30 mins per go (for health and safety reasons as well as because it's shared and to preserve the motor).

The owner is a music teacher and 2nd degree Reiki practitioner who lives in the main house with one child. Various treatments can sometimes be arranged during your visit, subject to availability on your dates. Aromatherapy massage (full body 1 hour £45 - neck, back and shoulders half hour - £30), Reflexology (45 mins, £35) and Reiki (1 hr head and torso £37, 1.5 hr full body £49). If you're interested please give plenty of notice to have the best chance of fitting you around existing work commitments.

We have a dog and a cat who are very friendly but not allowed in Meadowsweet because of people with allergies. Because we have our own pets we can't have anyone else's here and it wouldn't be fair to people with allergies so please don't book and then ask if you can bring your pet, no matter how well-behaved. Also if one of your party is afraid of animals please don't book as it's not practical to keep the dog in all day. He loves a game of ball and is very affectionate.

Have a lovely time!

Herstmonceux, England, Обединеното кралство

Herstmonceux is a lovely little Sussex village with a pub (the Brewers Arms), a French brasserie (The Sundial), a fish and chip shop that also does very good burgers, chicken, halloumi and pies (The Willows) and a really good Indian restaurant (Eastern Promise). We've got two convenience stores and a few other shops. It's about 15 mins walk to the village from Treetops.

If you don't mind driving or longer walks, there are plenty of good pubs that serve excellent food within easy reach. The Merrie Harriers in Cowbeech is about a mile a half away and it's a favourite amongst locals - a very traditional pub with beams and ingelnook fireplaces, good food and beer and a lovely garden. The White Horse in Bodle Street is at the other end of the lane and does good pub food and has a nice atmosphere. The Bull's Head in Boreham Street (about a mile and a half) have a beautiful garden and do great food including excellent home made pies. The Lamb in Wartling (near the castle) is similar but more gourmet (and pricier) and the Giant's Rest (by the Long Man) is also very good after a walk through the countryside.

Tucked away in historically rich 1066 country it is ideally located for walking, horse riding, cycling and painting. For nature lovers there is an abundance of local bird life and the nearby marshes and levels on the way to the beach at Pevensey (15 minutes by car), where there's another castle. 5 mins from the South Downs National Park it is within easy reach of Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Brighton, Ashdown (Pooh Bear) Forest and Forest Row Country Park. There is fishing at the local trout farm, golf, tennis, falconry, archery, the windmill at Windmill Hill, and of course, Herstmonceux Castle and the Science Centre and Observatory. You can go sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and paddleboarding from Eastbourne or Cuckmere and you can make pottery in nearby Burwash. Flying experiences/lessons can also be booked locally. Other nearby attractions include Bateman's (Rudyard Kipling's house), the Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park, Michelham Priory, Standen House in East Grinstead (a treasure trove for lovers of the Arts and Crafts movement), Great Dixter House and Gardens in Northiam, Scotney Castle Garden in Lamberhurst, the White Horse at Alfriston and Long Man at Wilmington.

I'm a single mum with one child. Treetops and the new Shepherd Hut, Heartsease, are in our garden. I teach music and art and run healing courses. I love hosting; I've been doing it for about 8 years and it gives me enormous pleasure welcoming people into our little sanctuary, seeing their faces brighten as I show them round, and sending them off happy and relaxed afterwards. I love the open countryside and the birdsong here, organic gardening, live music, cooking, animals and people.

I do my best to be here to welcome guests (if I can't I leave a key and come and say hello when I return). I live next door so guests are totally private and separate but I am usually on hand to help if needed. My aim is to be available but not intrusive; we've made a lot of friends through offering holidays but only if people have actively approached us. You will probably see us in the garden from time to time. Should anything go wrong I always have my phone and even if we are out or away we have local friends who can help if needed.
