The Shepherd's Return - Shepherd's hut in Sussex
Not suitable for children
Not suitable for pets
Lizzie came across a magazine article that planted the idea of owning a shepherd's hut in her head. She was instantly smitten by their simplicity and magic and after a long wait and much consideration, she created The Shepherd's Return. The idea of a simple yet magical space has been realised in the calm of her West Sussex country garden which is just an hour from London.
The hut, close to the house and neighbouring The Bothy, but with countryside stretching out all around, is simply decorated, with soft colours and red gingham curtains, giving it charm and warmth. In keeping with its setting in the natural beauty of the South Downs, the hut is lit and heated by solar and wood fuel. The shower and bath are up at the main cottage and there is a camping loo in a mini shepherd’s hut next to the main hut.
Lizzie tries to keep everything local and organic where possible, from the sheepskin hot water bottle to the natural wool bed linen and the breakfast hamper that arrives every morning to put your day of relaxation on the right track.
