We have enjoyed a very relaxing and restful stay at Forget-me-not Shepherd's Hut.  Even though we only live 18 miles away, we feel as though we have really escaped and we've loved exploring the beautiful countryside.  We had everything we needed in the luxurious and beautifully decorated hut - the wonderfully comfortable bed and the peace and quiet were the best!  Thank you.

This was our first experience of staying in a shepherd's hut and it was everything we wished for.  It was so relaxing and we enjoyed some great walks with our little dog Bones, right on the doorstep.  We were all very cosy and had everything we needed - thank you again Judith.  We shall remember ours stay with fond memories.

Thank you Judith.

We have had a really fantastic 3 night stay at the 'Forget-me-not Hut'.  We have never stayed anywhere like this before and we love it.  You have thought of everything, so cosy and inviting.  Spotlessly clean.  (So pleased our friends recommended it to us.)  Been out and about, nice trip on the steam train, had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Mermaid Inn in Rye. 
Thank you for all the breakfast provisions.

"Small but perfectly formed."  We have enjoyed a very peaceful few days in your comfortable shepherds hut.  Could definitely have stayed longer as feeling very relaxed.  Loved the hippo pouffe!  and such a comfy bed too.  Thanks for the breakfast goodies.  Would def recommend and hope to return again when there's no fuel shortages so we can get so see some of the places we couldn't this time.
Many thanks.

We were so lucky to find a 4-night slot in beautiful Forget-me-not Hut.  Would echo everything the previous entries have said.  It's perfect!  You've thought of all the little details for guests to have a comfortable, relaxing stay in this area of stunning countryside, gardens, manor houses and castles.  Bodiam and Great Dixter our favourites.  Thank you for your care.

Our first stay in a shepherds hut did not disappoint, such a high standard of workmanship and cleanliness. 
All needs had been catered for and the weather even turned out better than we expected, choosing to rain later in the evenings. 
Lovely days out and virtually on the doorstep. 
Thank you Judith for the generous food supplies.  Will certainly recommend to friends.

Beautifully well fitted out 'hut', exceptionally comfortable bed.  We really appreciated the excellent breakfast provisions.  The walks were a very thoughtful touch and enabled us to find the Castle across the fields.  We had a perfect break, lovely attentions to detail.  Quiet & private location.  
Thank you from Anita & Steve

Had a wonderful 2-night stay - shepherd's hut was just amazing!  Immaculate and so well designed - the provisions provided for breakfast were far more than we expected!  We will be back and will certainly be recommending to friends.  Thank you Judith for making this a perfect stay for my husband's 'surprise' birthday present!

We have had a very peaceful four night stay.  The hut has provided everything we needed and we enjoyed eating at the White Dog.  Lots to do and see in the area.  We made full use of our National Trust membership to visit a number of properties in the area.  Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

I'm so glad to have found the perfect place to stay - the county where I was born and still have relatives living locally to visit.  I too have had a yen to stay in a shepherd's hut and this is perfect.  I was on my own and needed a healing space - I've loved it and I'm very grateful to Judith for all her kindness.  I just wish my husband had been here to share it with me.   He would have really appreciated the superb craftsmanship and attention to detail.  Bless you and thank you Judith.

Have never stayed in a shepherd's hut before but what can I say but WOW!  What an initiation, it's quaint, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.  Judith has thought of everything guests would require and made every effort to ensure a pleasant stay.  She went out of her way to loan me a stair gate so my small dog could look out of the open door, he was very happy!  The weather was kind over the 3 days and we explored the beautiful Kent and Sussex areas of interest.  Very happy to recommend the hut to others, but want to keep it a secret too!  Thank you for being a super host.

Thank you so much for having us!  It has been so nice and so relaxing.  The hut is very well equipped and had everything we needed.  The hut is also so clean and well presented.  Wish we had booked to stay for longer than 2 nights.  We will be back!  Thank you Judith.
