“Perfect relaxing stay”
Reviewed April 12, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Booked into the Valley Hut last minute for a much needed break away from it all. Having stayed in similar accommodation before this is by far the best and well equipped shepherd's hut we have been to. Everything was there that you needed and the hut was spotless and very well maintained. The swing was perfect to sit and relax watching the horses, yellow hammers and buzzards. Did a couple of lovely walks along the valley and into Elham. We will definitely be returning in the summer when hopefully the weather is better so we can make even more use of this beautiful location. Thank you Hannah and Mark for the perfect stay.

“Beautiful Stay in the Countryside”
Reviewed November 7, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

What a delight this gorgeous place is!

We booked for a quiet weekend in the country for a little birthday retreat and boy did we get just that.

The setting is wonderful and Hannah is brilliant. From arriving to getting set up, she was on hand for anything we needed.

The hut’s are equipped with everything you could possibly need (literally everything).

I would recommend Clavertyne to anyone looking for a little luxury in the wilderness. It was fab!!

Thanks Hannah! We will be back.

“Wonderful, fantastic, super, idyllic and so much more”
Reviewed September 2, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My husband and I have just returned from a two night break in the Valley Hut. We were both very impressed with it. The Hut is super clean, with hot running water and a full size shower. The Valley Hut is perfectly positioned with sunshine all day, and a fantastic sunset over the Valley. There is plenty of local walks although we decided that we would stay at the Hut so that we could make the most of this fantastic experience.

We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the swing, with a glass of wine whilst looking over the Valley and watching the sunset.

Hannah is very friendly and does a fantastic job at keeping the huts clean and cosy.

We are looking forward to returning next year, and staying in the Woodland Hut.

“Idylic”
Reviewed June 18, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Positioned with uninterrupted views of the surrounding farmland staying here was a treat from every angle. Peace and solitude in high comfort. Everything has been considered from tea coffee and milk waiting for you to a local OS map and torch. The fire was very cosy and sitting out on the step watching the sun go down with a glass of...well, anything, was just a treat.

“Beautiful break”
Reviewed June 1, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a fabulous, romantic two night stay here. We found this place just by searching for places to stay in Kent on Google. It is the most beautiful, secluded little hut on a working farm. It is small, but everything we needed was provided for us. Hannah and Mark have thought of everything! They were very friendly and on hand to help if we needed anything, but also gave us lots of privacy.

The setting is so tranquil, away from the main farm, the other hut or any road. Lots of countryside nearby to walk through and plenty of wildlife too. Inside, there is plenty of space for two people and we were impressed with the good shower and that the composting toilet wasn't a problem at all. No unpleasant smells! The only thing I would recommend taking is an eye mask as the sun is up early and the hut is very bright in the mornings!

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a special break away, it's just beautiful and has to be seen to be believed.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

“Peaceful getaway”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed for 3 nights in the wonderful Valley Hut. It's cosy & every detail is taken care of. It is solar powered & has a gas cooker , shower & woodburner. It is ecologically minded. The views are great over a rural landscape & has easily accessible woodland for walks from the Hut. The owners are very helpful & provided milk, bread, butter, cereals, towels etc. The dog absolutely loved it (there is no livestock on the farm, so she could be off lead). We had a lovely weekend. We shall be returning!
