Traditional Shepherd’s Huts

  • 2guests
There are two of these 10sq m huts, each featuring a double bed, ensuite shower room and a wood-burning stove (there’s no mains electricity). Little Owl comes with access to an bird-watching spot looking towards the oak trees where Elmley’s barn owls nest – what’s more, there’s a pair of vintage binoculars and a Swarovski telescope waiting for you inside. Samphire has sweeping views across the marsh, Swale Estuary and the mainland in the distance. In winter, wildfowl take shelter on the Swale, and you’ll be in with a chance of spying short-eared owls swooping over the ponds. Request your preferred hut – Little Owl or Samphire – when booking.

Each of these cabins has floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the reserve. Designed with rustic upcycled furnishings, restored wood beams and lightly-hued panelling, the cabin has a king-size bed, small living area (with a sofa bed for two children under 10), a wood-burning fireplace and an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Outside, there's a freestanding roll-top bath tub, an alfresco dining space and a firepit. There are sweeping views of the reserve from the bedroom, so you won’t miss the TV, but you will also have a Roberts radio, tea- and coffee-making kit, hot-water bottles and Verden bath products. Please note, the indoor fireplace cannot be used if under-10s are staying on the sofa bed.
