A lovely peaceful three nights in your cosy shepherd's hut.  Very well equipped and beautifully maintained.  Can thoroughly recommend The White Dog and The Castle Inn (with a walk up the the castle after dinner, singing nightingale a bonus!)  Lovely walk to Great Dixter on footpaths - take your boots.  Many thanks for the loan of your rucksack.
Very best wishes,

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at your beautiful, well appointed Forget-me-not Shepherd's Hut.  Thank you so very much for the well stocked fridge & breakfast cereals/milks/juices.  Thank you also for the extra treats for our anniversary celebrations and the doggie treats for our 2 Puggles.  You have thought of everything!
Best, Michelle & Warren

What more can be said, to share how much we have enjoyed our stay here.  Everything has been done to perfection, there was nothing more that we needed to make our stay so comfortable and enjoyable.  The peace and quiet and constant twittering of the birds was very special.  Comfortable bed, showering facilities and breakfast supplies etc were just right.  It was lovely to explore this area of Sussex and Kent and enjoy almost unbroken sunshine for the entire week.  We have been truly blessed!  Thank you!  
Geoff and Christine
P.S. We hope to see you again too!!

What can we say but "ditto" to all the other feedback!  Always difficult to go away with a greyhound and saluki but they were made most welcome.
Five days here have not been enough and hope to come back again to explore more of this lovely county.  The shepherd's hut has been perfect!  Thank you so much Judith x

Thank you so much Judith for making us feel so welcome and also for all the breakfast provisions.  We've had  a lovely relaxing week and feel very lucky to have been blessed with such amazing weather.  Another part of England ticked off our bucket list.  

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a very special place.

Following a difficult change of life circumstances I by chance saw an advert in Country Living for a short stay in Forget-me-not Hut.  The advertisement appealed - I rang the number, spoke to Judith and immediately felt in safe hands.  The availability suited my diary so I booked almost immediately.  Only to find a very dear old friend lived just down the road!  I had not previously had chance to visit her - we have made up for that this week!  Judith you clearly are a dear kind person who takes please in care and giving.  Everything about the Hut is beautiful.  The surrounding landscape, quiet lanes blissfully soothing.  This week has helped me calm my thoughts and repair.  It has allowed me to move forward.  During this unsettled part of my life I have experienced a number of 'serendipitous' events which have, I feel, been far more than 'just chance'.  Forget-me-not Hut has been another and will never be forgotten!.  With love and thanks Diane & Milo
