    "Excellent,very peaceful stay. Brilliant- no TV could just enjoy the beautiful scenery and walks along South Downs."

    "Such an adorable cute place in quiet location with friendly and helpful owner, and I can not forget about our neighbours - alpaca, sheep and funny goats :)) Could not ask for better place to get away from a city, take a long walks and just relax. The only thing which would deserve an upgrade was the tinny grill, but we managed and everything was just perfect!!!"

    "Had a lovely 7 nights in Elsies shepherd hut. If you'd like a peaceful stay, this is the place. Beautiful location. Gorgeous views. Elaine and Chris (the owners) are ever so helpful. We would recommend it. Vic and Bob the pigmy goats) were friendly too."

    "We had a lovely short break in Sussex and Elsie’s hut was the perfect location for it! It is definitely a glamping style stay, but we loved cooking outside and sitting in front of the fire pit in the evenings. Bring warm layers and make the most of the hot water bottles provided! The location was fantastic, close to Brighton, the South Downs and plenty of attractions and places to eat. Thanks so much to Elaine and Christopher for our stay xx"
