El espacio
Buckhurst Shepherd's hut is ideally suited to couples; however, there is also a bunk bed, above the main double bed, available for a child between the ages of 5 and 10.

Size of the Shepherd's Hut is approx. 24ft x 8ft - it has an open plan living, bedroom and kitchen area, and separate bathroom with shower, WC and sink, with a selection of toiletries provided.

The living area has a double bed with single bunk on top. Fresh linen is provided on arrival; if guests are staying 5 days or longer, we will change the linen half way through the stay, but for shorter stays, we do not disturb guests for linen changes.

The kitchen is fully equipped with comprehensive self-catering facilities including an electric oven and stove, fridge freezer and sink, as well cutlery, crockery, condiments and all the cooking basics guests will require.

We provide a seasonal breakfast hamper including croissants, pain au chocolat, bread, butter, preserves, honey, granola, milk, orange juice, as well as tea and coffee (Nespresso machine), biscuits and fresh fruits. When possible, we try to provide seasonal home grown fruit as we grow fruit on site, such as strawberries, raspberries, apples, blueberries, pears, damsons, plums and tomatoes.

Our breakfast hamper should be sufficient for 2/3 days; we will provide a further hamper (or hampers) for guests staying more than three days. An example of our breakfast hamper for a family of three for a 2/3 day stay is shown in the photos above (subject to change).

As explained below, you have access to most of the 10 acres surrounding Buckhurst. It also contains a private orchard garden area behind the Shepherd's hut, which has a table and seats, as well as a small portable barbecue (we provide utensils and a lighter, but guests will need to bring or acquire their own charcoal, fire lighters and any produce they intend to cook; the barbecue should be used with caution and only on the slab provided away from the Shepherds Hut).

There is a television, which can pick up all terrestrial, Freesat and radio channels, and it has the facility to play the numerous DVDs and CDs which we have provided for guests. There are also board games, cards and books for guests to enjoy.

The property is all electric (no gas), including the heating, which is amply provided through a log-effect fire in the living area and a large radiator in the bathroom.

Our welcome pack provides details of the numerous local pubs and restaurants, if you want to dine or drink out; and lots of information about local tourist attractions and public transport (see the "Guest Access" and "the neighbourhood" sections below for further details).

Wifi is provided by an extender from the main house - this provides basic Wifi connection due to the connection through the extender, but we are looking to hardwire this for summer 2020. 3G/4G should also be available on most networks.

There is ample free guest parking on site (Vehicles and Contents Left at Owner's Risk)

Acceso de los huéspedes
Whilst Buckhurst provides a perfect base for exploring the Kent Coast, Romney Marsh, the East Kent Countryside and many attractions in the county, it also provides direct access to most of the surrounding 10 acres. This includes a stream which runs through our land as well as a public footpath which crosses the grounds and provides scenic walks into the yonder of the Kent countryside. Walking sticks, umbrellas and torches are provided for the convenience and comfort of guests.

As summarised in the "the neighbourhood" section below, our welcome pack, which we will provide to guests before arrival, provides ample details of the many local pubs and restaurants, shops, amenities, public transport, walks and tourist attractions including: Port Lympne Safari Park (3 miles away) ; the historic Cinque Port of Hythe with its Military Canal, and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway (4.5 miles away); Ashford with its Designer Outlet and Curious Brewery (5 miles away); Dymchurch Beach and Amusement Park (7 miles away); Folkestone with its refurbished Harbour Arm and Old Town and Sunny Sands Beach (8 miles away); Dover with its Port and Castle (15 miles away); the historic Cinque Port of Rye with its famous Mermaid Inn, Ypres Castle and nearby Camber Sands Beach and Dunes (15 miles away); Tenterden with its medieval High Street, Market, Heritage Steam Railway, Chapel Down Winery and Rare Breeds Centre (15 miles away); Canterbury with its famous Cathedral, and Wingham and Howletts Wildlife Parks (15 miles away); Leeds Castle, Historic Rochester with its Castle and Cathedral, and Chatham Historic Dockyard (20-25 miles away).
