The Owner Says

Our cosy Shepherd's Hut is located at Lockhurst Hatch Farm in the heart of the Surrey Hills AONB, close to Guildford, with both Heathrow and Gatwick airports easily accessible. For visitors arriving by car, there's parking adjacent to the farmyard, from where there is a 200 metre walk up across the field to the corner where the hut is situated in a lovely private spot.
Inside, there's a bed, table and chairs, photo-voltaic lighting, 12V sockets for re-charging mobiles, plus the hut includes bed linen, towels and a box of logs to keep the wood-burning stove roaring. Outside, guests will find a compost toilet, hot water outdoor shower and a 70 centimetre Kadai (firepit) – excellent for keeping warm whilst admiring the vista and watching the sunset, and useful for cooking too.

A delicious Farmhouse breakfast will be delivered to your doorstep in the morning, at a time of your choosing. Options include cheeses, cold meats, home-made bread, yoghurt, granola... There may well be enough left for lunch, if you're walking or cycling and want to take some with you!

About Lockhurst Hatch Farm Glamping

Suitable For

Glamping only. The shepherd's hut sleeps two people in a double bed.

Nearby

Ramblers can pick up the North Downs Way for some splendid walking, while cyclists can take on the challenging Surrey Hills. Down a gap carved by the River Wey, amongst the slopes lies Guildford (8 miles) with its enormous cathedral (01483 547860), a Norman Castle (01483 444751) and a pleasant high street. On the way, a detour into Shere is well worth your time, a picture-perfect place to stop for a drink in one of its numerous charming pubs. To the west Compton plays host to the Watts Gallery (01483 810235), a remarkable space for the works of prolific Victorian painter and sculptor George Frederic Watts. Those on the hunt for history and culture will enjoy the National Trust properties Polesdon Lacey (01372 452048) and Clandon Park (01483 222482), while privately owned Busbridge Lakes (01483 421955) matches both in size, history and grandeur.

Food & Drink

Gill and Peter deliver a delicious farmhouse breakfast  to your doorstep in the morning, at a time of your choosing. Breakfast can be chosen from the menu which includes, cheeses, cold meats, home-made bread, yoghurt, granola and more. There is often enough left for your lunch if you are walking or cycling and want to take some with you. Those eating out should head north to the villages of Shere and Gomshall, a couple of miles away. Gomshall Mill (01483 203060) is a timber-framed mill dating from Medieval times, and inside this characterful space good food is served at reasonable prices. Similarly atmospheric is the 1920′s Hurtwood Inn, with a contemporary bar serving traditional ales. For finer dining, Kinghams (01483 202168) restaurant was opened in 1993 by chef proprietor Paul Baker and now features in all major guides – booking is therefore essential. Other local favourites that have to be mentioned are the recently renovated William Bray (01483 202044), 15th century timber framed The White Horse (01483 202518), which has featured in several films, and the wonderfully local William IV (01483 202685), with low chunky beams and roaring log fires in winter.

Magical memories

I was considering a couple of days of half-term camping with my daughter, but when I spotted this I just couldn't resist. From the top of the hill where the shepherd's hut is situated you can't see any other buildings. Our only neighbours were the sheep, and the owls softly hooting in the trees as the nights drew in. With the stove to warm us, it was the perfect cozy autumn getaway. The breakfast hamper was such a treat, with enough leftover for packed lunches to fuel our biking along the River Wey Navigation, and a soggy but fun hike up Box Hill! Thank you for making 2020 more memorable for the right reasons.

Magical location, snug, warm and cosy

A blissful few days escape from everything, surrounded by beautiful countryside including some lovely autumn woods. The hut itself was warm and cosy, with a very efficient wood-burner and comfy bed. And a delicious breakfast every morning! Loved every minute of our stay.

Beyond Glamping!!!

Our two nights at Shepherd's Hut were wonderful, and exceeded our expectations. We (two friends, professionals working in London) charged up our spiritual well-being batteries with nature, while cycling over to Guildford, walking through many trekking/walking paths to explore the nature and local pub/village around Lockhurst Hatch. Gill(host)'s breakfast and all cares were great!!! The hut (with outside shower/compost toilet) were very clean/tidy, cosy, so special at the top of the hill, with "USB charging point" "good phone/internet reception" My time at Shepherd's Hut will stay in my mind for long as sweet/wonderful memories.

Peaceful, isolated and beautifully serene.

I've just spent 4 nights here and what a gloriously perfect 4 nights it was. I originally booked 3 but went for the additional night because it was just so lovely. If it's isolation you're after then this is your place. The hut was a couple of fields walk from the farmhouse, high on a hill with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. It was really comfortable and I slept like a baby. I would wake each morning and build my fire for coffee using the camp kettle, and each morning as I walked out I would see deer in the field opposite. There were no other souls around. I watched buzzards from my camp, even seeing one try to take prey in flight (it missed) which was just fabulous. The breakfast that Gill delivered at a time that suited was delicious, and plenty enough for lunch as well, and I do eat a lot! There is so much countryside to roam, right on your doorstep, and I didn't need to visit any shops the whole time I was here. The outside shower was wonderful, and the peace and quiet was so good for the soul. I felt relaxed the moment I arrived, and only got more relaxed the longer I was there. I would recommend this to anyone seeking tranquility from the buzz of life. Perfect soul food. Thank you Gill for your hospitality and kindness. I'm certain I'll return! An easy 5 stars from me🙏
