The perfect place for those looking to enjoy a relaxing break in a quirky modern shepherd’s hut! The Shepherd’s Hut at Calvesfield Shaw is a cosy retreat with a fully-equipped kitchen, shower room, Smart television, double bed and wood burner to keep you warm. With the outdoors at heart, it opens on to a large decking area with dining facilities and seating, with sweeping views across its own 5 acres of surrounding fields. It is set on a working farm totalling 37½ acres, which guests are also free to roam around and explore. There are sheep, geese, ducks, chickens and a fenced pond 30 yards from the entrance.
Herstmonceux is not only home to the hands-on Observatory Science Centre housed amongst the domes and telescopes of the former Royal Greenwich Observatory, but there is also the magnificent Herstmonceux Castle with its Elizabethan gardens to wander around. The town also produces Henner’s medal-winning sparkling wine, and because Sussex has a sunny climate and chalky subsoil (the same as that in Champagne in France), the county also produces wonderful sparkling wines. To access your nearest beach, take a short car journey to Pevensey where the Romans landed, and you can tackle the beautiful 31-mile 1066 Country Walk which starts at Pevensey via Herstmonceux, and on to Battle and then the Cinque Port town of Rye. Golf and fishing lakes are close by. For a spot of sightseeing, you can take the train to London from Polegate. Beach 8 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.
