These unique handmade shepherds’ huts offer beautiful boutique camping holidays in the tiny East Sussex village of Bodiam.

Only yards from the fairytale castle, the huts are situated in a wooded glade on a farm between the River Rother and the steam railway, yet it is only a short walk to the local pub.

Both huts offer accommodation for up to four people with a combination of bunk beds and a double bed. A gas hob and an outside fire pit provide cooking facilities and a separate hut offers piping hot showers, toilets and basins.

The wash hut is equipped with two separate showers and private wash rooms.

Designed to have minimal impact on the environment, the huts are built on-site using primarily reclaimed and recycled products such as old chassis from touring caravans, and old corn bins for the roofs.

The interiors are stylishly decorated using Farrow and Ball paints, which are dyed using natural pigments.

All the timber for the worktops and seat covers is sourced from sustainable woodland on the farm.

The electricity for lighting is provided via a solar panel in the roof.
