"Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous holiday with you recently, thank you. I'm just coming out of 'sheilding' and this was a chance to have some precious time with some of my close family before going back to work, to my favourite job in the world, being a midwife. We stayed in two of your lovely Sheppard's huts in a very quiet and peaceful woodland. The huts were cosy, comfy and clean. It worked so well, grown up siblings being close but not too close together and the grandchildren had such fun scampering around and just playing. We even paddled, swam and kayaked up the river. Of course we were very lucky with the weather but I imagine the Sheppard's huts would have their delights at all times of the year."

Beautiful, Comfortable & Sustainable

Hand built by Nick here on the farm in the tiny village of Bodiam in East Sussex, our huts are based on the idea of an old Shepherd’s hut. What makes them unique in today’s market is that (in true agricultural fashion) they are built using reclaimed, recycled and locally sourced materials wherever possible. The aim of this is to make them of the lowest possible environmental impact.

Camping & Tabernacles

Bring your own tent, or alternatively we have beautiful tin tabernacles available for hire, that will be all set up and waiting for you on your arrival in one of our picturesque campsites. Our campsites offer wash huts with 2 loos and 2 piping hot showers, private fire pit per pitch and a covered seating area in case of any changes in the Great British weather!

"The eight shepherd’s huts of 200-acre Quarry Farm would ordinarily steal the show – wood-burners, custom-built beds and locally crafted kitchen fittings show impressive attention to detail. Yet the farm’s other attractions are just as appealing: kayaking and paddle boarding are available on the River Rother and the Kent & East Sussex Steam Railway runs right through the farm..."

"Sustainable huts based on a little farm in East Sussex. You can choose from rustic old-school camping, or pretty glamping that comes with all the ‘trendy pieces’ glamping is attached to, like chalkboards and bunting. Nearby there’s GoApe, Bodiam Castle and – get this – a lighthouse baking school..."

"This secret, shady glade near an old castle may sound like the stuff of legend, but Hop Pickers Wood is no fantasy. Guests will not be given the site's exact location until a reservation is made, but let's just say it's not far from Bodiam Castle, hidden about half a mile down a private track. There's a sheltered area with an open fire, which makes it ideal for communal gatherings – in fact, the whole tree-fringed site is perfect for groups seeking privacy and seclusion..."

"When developing their boutique campsite they recycled old caravans to build beautiful and original huts, allowing them to offer ‘Staycations’ with a modern eco twist. They illustrate perfectly that it’s quite possible to make the most of what you have, think about your unique selling proposition, build a successful business and brand, and yet still manage to remain earth friendly and sustainable. This is what Anna had to say..."
