Heartsease is one of two extra-large (6m x 2.4m) Shepherds huts retreats at the bottom of the owner's beautiful rural garden, overlooking miles of rolling countryside. There's a super-comfortable kingsize bed, a kitchenette, a seating/dining area and a luxury shower room. It feels like you're in the fields but there's no long walk with luggage and all mod cons including excellent wifi. There's a little private patio with a bistro set. Access to shared garden with BBQ and hot tub. 4L air cooler.

Tucked away down a little lane with trees meeting over the top in places, 15 minutes walk from the charming Sussex village of Herstmonceux, nestle Heartsease and her sister hut Meadowsweet. Designed to be the perfect antidote to the stress of modern urban life without sacrificing any of its creature comforts or modern connectivity, they enjoy uninterrupted views across an area of outstanding natural beauty and still have very civilized bathroom arrangements, 32" smart TVs, excellent wifi and good 4G reception. They're ideal for romantic breaks, retreats, shielding, isolating, working remotely or for groups who want to book more than one hut and have a socially-distanced reunion.

Horses clop down the lane and the air is filled with bird song. At night you can hear owls. There is a farmer along the lane who has equipment in use and large vehicles during the week sometimes so it's more reliably peaceful at night and weekends. There's a private patio especially for you outside your hut and a much larger shared patio in the middle of the garden with two charcoal barbecues, a fire pit and pots of fresh herbs which you are welcome to use. Next to the big patio is the new Therapy Room built during the latest lock-down, where guests are able to book treatments such as Aromatherapy massage, Reflexology and Reiki. The owner is an artist, music teacher and Reiki practitioner who lives in the main house with one child.

Newly built and finished to a high standard, the huts offer a level of comfort far beyond what might have been available to a shepherd in times gone by. Much bigger than a traditional hut, each has more than enough room for the king-size bed which has a 3000 pocket sprung mattress topped with memory foam, goose feather/down duvets and pillows, high quality linen, deliciously supersoft blankets and a sumptuous array of cushions to lounge on whilst you drink in the magnificent view. Should you require a bottle of chilled Champagne or Prosecco on arrival this can be arranged with the owner.

Heartsease is the furthest hut from the main house and the nearest to the fields behind the garden, which are often occupied by sheep or horses. At the moment we also have cows and calves :) The windows in the bed area are dual aspect and you can look out and feel like you're right in amongst the animals but actually you're a few feet the other side of the fence and a few yards from your car. There are fairy lights around the bed for night time and large bunkers with lids for your things at the end of the bed that can also be somewhere to put a cup or plate on if you're sitting there. Unlike some huts, our beds are normal height and fixed in position, so there is no need to rearrange anything before going to bed or climb to get there. There is ample room for suitcases underneath, as well as a bedside cupboard and hooks with proper wooden hangers by the door and hooks in the bathroom.

Heartsease has a folding table and chairs in the main body of the hut. Opposite is the kitchenette, which has a small fridge, a sink and a small tabletop oven/grill with a two-ring stove on top. It's equipped with pans, crockery, cutlery, utensils and basics such as cling film, foil, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, cooking oil, mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup and seasoning. It's also got tea, coffee, sugar, herbal teas, a kettle and a cafetiere. There's a 32" Smart TV which can be angled towards the dining area or the bed.

Opposite the door there's a rocking chair ideal for admiring the view through the door/reading/strumming an instrument/snoozing by the little electric flame-effect stove which provides a warm glow and variable heat in winter as well as cool air in summer. The hut also has an oil-filled radiator by the foot of the bed which can be left on all the time in winter, making it much nicer, cleaner, quieter and safer to sleep in than having a real fire or fan heater running all night whilst ensuring you'll wake up warm and cosy. The huts are very thoroughly insulated to keep them warm in winter and cool in summer. There’s also a HEPA air filter which removes dust, bacteria and viruses which you are welcome to run during your stay.

To the left of the front door is an ensuite shower room with big super-absorbent towels, soap and shower gel/shampoo. Because the huts are elevated off the ground and pointed towards the fields, you can see the beautiful view but nobody can see you, so you have a loo with a view :)

Outside Heartsease there's a little private patio with a bistro set and an area of garden which is secluded from the rest by the hut and has been recently landscaped and laid to turf and borders with a lot of flowering shrubs and bulbs. The view is really spectacular - the owner's favourite spot on the property - and because of the angle of the hut, something of a secret garden. There's a stepping stone path leading past the other hut, Meadowsweet (which you can't see from inside Heartease and can't see into your hut) across to the bigger communal patio with two charcoal BBQs, a wood-burning fire-pit that you can also cook on and the new treatment room. Beyond this is a garden gate to the driveway and a building housing the owner's art room and above, Treetops, another holiday home with a treehouse balcony.

To the right of Treetops, on a deck in the middle of the garden, is the hot tub. It really is bliss! Behind that is the main house and owner's lawn and veg plot which is not fenced off for aesthetic reasons but guests are asked not to go beyond the hot tub deck. We encourage guests to feel welcome in the shared spaces and avoid going very near each others' front doors, none of which overlook each other. There are a maximum of six adult guests onsite at any one time, which makes social distancing easy and ensures the facilities are never too busy.

The hot tub is available between 9am and midnight for private half hour sessions. Guests must shower first and use the sanitization provided - I show everyone how when they arrive. It's £10 a go. You can have as many goes as you like but if there's a thunderstorm or it's very windy it can't be used. Also if the water needs changing I don't hesitate but it only affects one day.

On top of Airbnb's enhanced cleaning protocol we are also running an ozone generator (which kills everything including viruses) between stays. This takes time for the gas to do it's work and then the accommodation has to be aired out before we can start cleaning, which has affected the check in and out times we are able to offer. If you want to come earlier and explore the area there are loads of things to do in our Guidebook for Herstmonceux which has lots of information about the local area, places to eat, walk and visit and activities available nearby. You can find it by clicking on my profile picture. If I'm ready early I'll let you know ASAP. Likewise, if I'm able to offer a slightly later checkout I'll let you know :)

We have a dog and a cat who are very friendly but not allowed in Heartsease because of people with allergies. Because we have our own pets we can't have anyone else's here and it wouldn't be fair to people with allergies so please don't book and then ask if you can bring your pet, no matter how well-behaved. Also if one of your party is afraid of animals please don't book as it's not practical to keep the dog in all day. He loves a game of ball and is very affectionate. If you play with him please use the ball thrower or the gloves provided.

If you'd like Reiki it's £37 for a 45 minute session of full body and mind relaxation and restoration or £49 for an hour and quarter, which is a double dose and more suitable if you have more significant physical/emotional challenges to face. I have a colleague who can sometimes visit and who offers Aromatherapy massage and Reflexology. It's £30 for a 30 minute neck, back and shoulder massage, £45 for a 45 minute full body massage and £35 for a 40 minute Reflexology foot massage. Treatments need to be pre-booked so they can be fitted in around existing work commitments.

If you’re interested in booking more than one of our places at the same time please click on my profile to see my other listings and check availability. The location is ideal for socially distanced reunions enjoying the great outdoors together while having your own separate accommodation. It's also a great venue for face-to-face team meetings/corporate treats because the wifi is great in all the accommodation and there's even a wifi router on the big guest patio.

Weeknights are cheaper and there's a 20% discount on stays of a week or more. If you choose the non-refundable rather than flexible cancellation you get another 10% off. NB please be aware that if you choose the non-refundable cancellation policy it’s not possible to change your trip dates. There’s a £35 cleaning fee per stay and the service charge is Airbnb’s booking fee.

Please also note the reason the hot tub can't be included in the price is that if you can't go in for some reason (eg bad weather) you just don't pay the fee.

Have a lovely time!

Hailsham, East Sussex, i-United Kingdom

Herstmonceux is a lovely little Sussex village with a pub (the Brewers Arms, now doing food Thursday-Sunday), a French brasserie (The Sundial, French cuisine, a proper treat with amuse bouche between courses), a fish and chip shop that also does very good burgers, chicken, halloumi and pies (The Willows) and a really outstanding Indian restaurant (Eastern Promise). We've got a convenience store and post office, a petrol station with a general store, a bake shop, a coffee shop and a few other shops. It's about 15 mins walk to the village. Supermarkets (Asda, Tesco and Waitrose) are about 3 miles away in Hailsham. Callendars in Hailsham is a really lovely restaurant, there's also a Prezzo and a Ribs & Co, Butlers Cafe which does a great Eggs Benedict and a vegan restaurant called Sacred Cow.

If you don't mind driving or longer walks, there are plenty of good pubs that serve excellent food within easy reach. The Merrie Harriers in Cowbeech is about a mile a half away and it's a favourite amongst locals - a very traditional pub with beams and ingelnook fireplaces, good food and beer and a lovely garden. The White Horse in Bodle Street is at the other end of the lane and does good pub food and has a nice atmosphere. The Bull's Head in Boreham Street (about a mile and a half) have a beautiful garden and do great food including excellent home made pies.

Tucked away in historically rich 1066 country it is ideally located for walking, horse riding, cycling and painting. For nature lovers there is an abundance of local bird life and the nearby marshes and levels on the way to the beach at Pevensey (15 minutes by car), where there's another castle and lots of pubs and an excellent restaurant called Simply Seafood which sometimes has freshly caught lobster. It's only open on Friday and Saturday evenings and you have to book. Raipur is a really good contemporary Indian restaurant; there's also a Chinese restaurant called the Happy Dragon where you can order as many dishes as you like for a fixed price per person.

Within easy reach of Eastbourne, Bexhill, Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Brighton, Ashdown (Pooh Bear) Forest, Forest Row Country Park and the South Downs National Park, there is plenty to see and do. There is fishing at the local trout farm, golf, tennis, falconry, archery, pottery, the windmill at Windmill Hill, and of course, Herstmonceux Castle. The Science Centre and Observatory is a great day out no matter how old you are or what the weather is like - they also host special events which you can find out about on their website. You can go lake swimming at Lime Cross nursery and they also do yoga and Tai Chi sessions by the lake. Knockhatch Adventure Park is about 3 miles away and

Flying experiences/lessons can be booked locally and you can go paragliding off the Downs. You can go sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and paddleboarding from Eastbourne or Cuckmere, which is a meandering river valley with a pub (the Cuckmere Inn) that does very nice food and you can walk from there either across the fields to the beach or around Friston Forest.

Other nearby attractions include Bateman's (Rudyard Kipling's house), the Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park, Michelham Priory, Birling Gap, Seven Sisters, Beachy Head, Standen House in East Grinstead (a treasure trove for lovers of the Arts and Crafts movement), Great Dixter House and Gardens in Northiam, Scotney Castle Garden in Lamberhurst, the White Horse at Alfriston and Long Man at Wilmington. Alfriston is a charming medieval village with quirky shops and really good walking nearby, in fact the Pilgrims Way runs through it. Rye, with it's abundance of interesting antique shops and restaurants, is less than an hour away, as is Winchelsea, which has a lovely beach. Camber Sands is only a little further.

Battle (the village where the 1066 battle with the Normans happened) is 20 mins east by car. Bewl Water and Bedgebury Pineatum are about 45 mins by car where you can hire bikes or canoes or go fishing, sailing, waterskiing, walking or take a boat ride. If you like castles, Hever Castle (Anne Boleyn's family home) is about an hour from here and a really brilliant day out and a lovely drive through the countryside to get there. There's also Scotney Castle and Sissinghurst Castle Garden.

I'm a single mum with one child. Treetops and the new Shepherd Huts, Heartsease and Meadowsweet, are in our garden. I teach music and art and run healing courses. I love hosting; I've been doing it for about 10 years and it gives me enormous pleasure welcoming people into our little sanctuary, seeing their faces brighten as I show them round, and sending them off happy and relaxed afterwards. I love the open countryside and the birdsong here, organic gardening, live music, cooking, animals and people.

Phakathi nokuhlala kwakho

I do my best to be here to welcome guests (if I can't I leave a key and come and say hello when I return). I live next door so guests are totally private and separate but I am usually on hand to help if needed. My aim is to be available but not intrusive; we've made a lot of friends through offering holidays but only if people have actively approached us. You will probably see us in the garden from time to time. Should anything go wrong I always have my phone and even if we are out or away we have local friends who can help if needed.
