Escape and enjoy some peace and quiet in this luxury hand-built shepherd's hut with wood-fired hot tub, close to the South Downs National Park and the city of Brighton.
If you're looking for a rural escape where you can sit back on the sundeck and listen to mother nature whilst watching the sheep graze, then this is the spot for you.
As you step through the stable-door there is a super comfy king-size bed, dressed in sumptuous linens for a wonderful night's sleep. To the far end of the hut is a cosy wood-burning stove and a door which leads to an en suite shower-room.
The kitchenette is well-equipped with an electric hob, toaster, kettle, induction hot plate and fridge, perfect for rustling up a quick meal. The decking is a lovely spot to catch the afternoon sun or make a cocktail or two, or at night sit around the fire-pit and toast marshmallows whilst you look up and do some stargazing.
Cleo's Hut got her name after Cleo Rocos who starred alongside Kenny Everett the famous TV presenter and comedian who lived in the main house here in the 1970s.
If you require additional accommodation, you can book Kenny's Hut (4920) a shepherd's hut located in a nearby field which sleeps two or The Piggery at John Bulls House (4922) nearby, which also sleeps two.
