One of the huts

General

  • Shepherd’s huts beside a pond on the grounds of a 16th-century pub
  • A 15-minute drive to Godalming; llama treks organised from the site
  • Units include smart TVs, coffee machines, wifi and underfloor heating

What could make a stay in a swish shepherd’s hut in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty even more spectacular? A scenic pond? Yep. A 16th-century pub just opposite? Definitely. And a group of llamas in the grounds...? 100%.

These animals hang out in the village of Hambledon: go wave hello on your way to drinks at The Merry Harriers inn (which the site belongs to), where you can still spy the list of landlords’ names written on the walls dating as far back as the early 1700s. Or better yet ask at the bar about treks with these furry creatures in tow; amble alongside them on The Greensand Way while they carry a picnic prepared for you by the pub (with options to add a bit of fizz as a treat…).

You could also sip a glass of vino – kept cool in the wine fridge – while lying back on the teak sun loungers beside the firepit outside your shepherd’s hut during cooler summer evenings or cosy up in front of the logburner inside in winter. Your slick space will also have a private bathroom with a shower and luxury toiletries, a flatscreen TV, wifi access and a Nespresso coffee machine.

The underfloor heating is a cosy addition to the hut and one that’s especially welcome after getting feet wet on a fly fishing in the local area (check on site about organised trips). You can spend time outdoors gazing at more than 1,000 different tree and shrub species at the National Trust - Winkworth Arboretum too, just over five minutes’ drive away, or in the 25 acres of woodland and hills at award-winning Ramster Gardens about 10 minutes down the road…

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Great location , friendly staff but room for improvement09/07/2020

  • Liked: 

    Location was great , great local walking paths, Shepard’s huts set around a small pond in a quiet location.

    Disliked: 

    service was very sloppy, very polite attentive staff however very sloppy and forgetful. food is over priced for the average standard. Good food but not at the same quality as the price point suggests. If you are charging £19 for a roast Dinner it needs to be amazing in my opinion.

    No kindling provided to start the inside or external fires. Shower drainage was extremely slow. (Shepard’s hut 5)

    No WiFi in Shepard’s huts although not a massive problem for us. But when charging over £200 a night it should be on offer if needed.

Local attractions

Cracking stately homes are rife in the rural lands around the South Downs: head to Petworth House and Park (20 minutes’ drive) for one of the best in the area, a mansion with a fine art collection displayed in grand rooms. You can see works by Turner, Flaxman and Blake here as well as take tours of the servants’ quarters or wander about in the 700-acre deer park.

Prefer cycling to sauntering? Bikes can be rented in Hambledon for tours of the countryside on two wheels.

While you’re in the village have a look inside the well-preserved Oakhurst Cottage with its renovated timber-framed front to see how labourers lived in the 16th century; the garden’s interesting too, as it’s planted with flowers that were popular in Victorian times.
