Staycations: The Hay Hut in Kent’s Saxon Shore
The Hay Hut is a beautiful Shepherd’s Hut surrounded by ten acres of peaceful countryside which is yours to enjoy during your stay. A short walk or very short drive takes you into the village with a shop, pub, and butcher. Kent and East Sussex are on your doorstep. The Hay Hut is beautifully furnished to make your stay a real treat.
The hut is perched on a gentle slope leading down to a stream which borders mixed woodland, and the uninterrupted views are outstanding. Whilst the top of the field is cut for hay in the summer, the slope leading down to the stream and woodland is left wild, and as a consequence is a haven for nature, particularly birds and butterflies.
There’s a double bed with the softest of sheets and under-bed storage. The bathroom has a WC, sink, shower, fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries. Your own well-equipped kitchen means you can make everything from a morning coffee to drink in bed or delicious supper to eat on the patio on a warm evening. During colder months the woodburning stove keeps you cosy, and we’ll provide you with plenty of firewood.

What’s in Aldington?
Although the hut provides you with all the facilities you need to self-cater there are numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants in surrounding villages and towns, so you could enjoy a scallop and bacon baguette on the seafront at Hythe for breakfast, have a different world cuisine from every stall on Folkestone’s Harbour Arm for lunch, and a slap-up traditional dinner at a village pub for dinner. The fish and chip van visits the village on a Tuesday.
Aldington itself has its own general store and Post Office, pub, butcher and fishmonger, as well as the fantastic egg vending machine, which has to be seen to be believed! And it doesn’t just sell eggs. You can snap up some brownies, bacon, milk, veg and whatever the farmer happens to have put in it that day, and it’s just a short walk away across the fields.
