Description of The Original Hut Company

Only yards from the National Trust’s fairy tale castle in Bodiam, the shepherds 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.

There is a Michelin starred restaurant in the village and a small ferry service operates to the next village down stream.

The farm is 200 acres of grassland and orchargds run by the family.

Each hut offers accommodation for up to four or five 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 huts are finished to a high level, in terms of interior decoration and safety and are accredited by Quality in Tourism.

They are warm and cosy, double glazed, fully insulated and heated with a wood burning stove they are designed to be both comfortable and user friendly at any time of year .

The wash hut is equipped with two separate showers and private wash rooms. Piping hot water is supplied by a gas fired boiler offering convenience for our guests
