  The Detail...

Nestled in 100 acres of unspoilt working cattle farmland, youll find the beautiful handbuilt Herdsmans Hut. This one-of-a-kind hut has been carefully and lovingly constructed without the use of any power tools. The frame is made up of oak beams which have been left exposed and the slate tiles for the roof came from a Victorian property in Canterbury. The result is a delightfully proportioned hut located in one of the farms most secluded areas. The peaceful surroundings, close to the farms duck pond and the uninterrupted panoramic views make this a wonderful destination for a quiet romantic couples escape.

Inside the hut, youll find a luxurious double bed waiting for you with crisp cotton linen and a comfy mattress. Due to the compact dimensions, every inch of space has been cleverly utilised. Youll find some storage space under the bed and a table for two pulls out from the bedframe. The little kitchenette is equipped to help you rustle up some simple meals for cosy evenings in. Theres a mini fridge for storing your supplies, an electric hob and a sink. Alternatively, take the cooking outside and fire up the barbecue or the fire pit on the decking. Settle in for the evening with a glass of wine on the decking, a delicious meal cooking away on the barbeque and watch the sun go down over the farm.

You dont need to worry about leaving any home comforts behind as The Herdmans Hut has its own electricity supply powering the kitchen and the ensuite shower room. Youll have hot running water and a powerful electric shower and youll be cosy and warm in the evenings thanks to the wood-burning stove.

For breakfast, you can tuck into a bowl of Broxhall Farm Granola, made in the farmhouse kitchen, before setting off on the days activities. There are a whole array of places to eat in the local area and in nearby Canterbury. Or, simply stroll across the fields to The Duck, the fantastic local pub which is known for its delicious food.

Theres plenty to do in the local area, from country walks to exploring the nearby towns and cities. There are footpaths around the farm itself which lead out into Kents beautiful countryside. There are also several cycle routes if you fancy bringing your bike along. The beautiful city of Canterbury is under 10 minutes away with one of the countrys oldest cathedrals to visit and lots of independent shops and restaurants. If you prefer a day at the seaside, a trip to Whitstable is a must, with delicious seafood and beach huts lining the seafront.
