If you are in a self-catering shepherd's hut you will have tea, freshly ground coffee (from local speciality roasters Lost Sheep Coffee), sugar, and, of course, marshmallows in your hut. Please just ask on arrival if you'd like fresh milk and home made muesli. If you'd like to cook for yourselves there are fantastic farm shops locally to stock up on goodies. A choice of teas is available in the barn.
All huts are set-up so you can cook simple meals, but it is glamping so there isn’t a microwave or a dishwasher! Vanellus has a gas camping stove, Little Owl and Samphire have woodburning stoves, The Damson, The Saltbox and Ferryman’s have a kitchenette with gas hobs and a mini oven. Pots and pans, crockery and cutlery are provided.
Delicious hot meals delivered to your hut door
We can cook up a warming hearty supper or indulgent breakfast sandwich with fantastic Kentish ingredients and deliver hot meals to your hut. All meals are made in our kitchen using local ingredients. Our meat comes from Macknade’s Butchers which champion local farmers and are the only certified butcher of pasture-fed meat in East Kent. We source fruit and vegetables from Macknades and Brambledown Farm Shops.
You can settle up for any extras on check out by cash or card on check out.
