In the Area

There is so much to see and do in this area of Kent. The nearby Royal Military Canal was built to defend England during the Napoleonic wars and is now a perfect place for a relaxing walk whilst spotting kingfishers and other water birds. Romney Marsh itself is a wonderful place for bird and wildlife spotting. RSPB at Dungeness, the oldest of their reserves is also a fantastic spot for ornithologists. For history lovers the Historic Lympne Castle is nearby, as well as Port Lympne Wildlife Reserve. There's no need to bring your own bikes as you can hire bikes from Channel Bike Hire who will deliver to your accommodation free of charge - please ask for further details. For some retail therapy visit Hythe, one of the original Cinque Ports with its long high street of local shops, or for a day at the beach head to Dymchurch less than 4 miles away.

Extras and Experiences


Refreshing! 5/5

We loved every minute, it was a beautiful and refreshing stay that we really needed! We would definitely go again and have recommended our friends to go! My highlight would be feeding the baby lambs!

A bucket list that didn’t disappoint 4.8/5

Beautiful setting, well thought out accommodation with everything you could want for your stay Incredible accommodating hosts which was much appreciated as they were a busy farming family The welcome pack was the best ever and I have traveled a lot Would thoroughly recommend a visit, will visit again!

Mandy Sharpe | 22 April 2024

Excellent experience 5/5

Exquisite, cosy venue in the countryside. The host had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. It was great to see a lamb being born, too!

Louisa Lee | 13 April 2024

Lovely stay 5/5

Beautiful view over open field. Great location for all of the Marsh and Dungeness. Extremely well-equipped and comfortable. Host very helpful and easy to contact. Easy self check-in.

Stunning weekend 4.8/5

I want to start off by saying a HUGE thankyou to Kristina and co. for being so helpful with everything from way before my arrival till the very end. Anything we needed help with she was just a phone call away, we needed help with running hot water outside for the bath she was there within 10minutes with a bottle of wine in hand to say sorry for the inconvenience. We took a chance on heading there early March hoping the lambs were there but unfortunately we were too early BUT that didn't matter as the stay was just as beautiful. Location is great, a big tesco is only 15/20minutes away along with Ashford town, personally i wouldn't bother heading towards Hythe the place is a ghost town and very dated. We headed out one afternoon for a walk and stumbled across Lympne zoo which we were upset we didn't find earlier as it looked like more of a safari where you feed the animals from your Jeep. The shepherd hut had everything we needed and i would definitely come back here so well done on creating such a gorgeous stay so thank-you. The only criticism i can think of is when we had that awful weather Friday night, above the boiler can get really noise with the wind which made it hard to sleep but other than that it was unreal. Thanks, James and Francesca

A magical detox from modern life 4.8/5

A perfect spot to switch off from modern life. Beautiful cosy hut, well appointed and homely, bliss!

Clare Hickie | 01 December 2023

Stunning views of stars and beautiful accomadation 5/5

We had an amazing stay at The Romney with our little girl. From the luxury outside tub, to the fire pit for toasted marshmallows! We enjoyed every second. Our little girl adored the chickens that go around the field and the sheep. The breakfast box add on was delicious of fresh farm shop foods and the owner leaves lovely little touches (like bath robes and lush toiletries) that really go a long way to make the stay special! The stars are stunning to see on a clear night too.

Beautiful Getaway in nature 5/5

What a perfect location for a getaway surrounded by nature! The view across the fields with the company of fluffy friends was amazing. In the hut, absolutely everything was thought of - from wine to fresh bread and biscuits. The outdoor bath was lovely, and perfect for using during the day or night. We will definitely be returning!

Giuseppe Di Donna | 24 August 2023

Gorgeous 4.5/5

The Romney was gorgeous, it was so relaxing and peaceful it was so nice waking up to all the sheep around us, would definitely recommend and stay again

Ideal short stay for ewe and yours 4.7/5

We stayed for one night in the larger hut and had a terrific time. With two boys (8 and 11) sharing the top bunk it wasn't roomy but absolutely fine for a short stay. They enjoyed the outside bath and the novelty of sharing the 'garden' with the farm's sheep. Overall, the communication was good, the owners left us to it (which I liked), all facilities were new and clean and we were on the beach by 11am the next day. Will probably return next year. A great base for the South Coast

Adam Russell | 13 June 2023

Beautiful, perfectly designed, well kept 4.8/5

Fantastically designed small cabin. Sheep and baby lambs all around, outdoor bath a wonderful touch even on a cold windy day. We had a bath under the stars and were kept lovely and warm. Bed comfy, everything clean. Lovely walks all around, though paths aren't clear at points.

Ellesheva Kissin | 01 June 2023

Speechless! 5/5

My stay at the Shepard's Hut was beyond words. It had the best views, it was cosy and very cute with all the lambs and their mothers huddled round. Any of my questions were answered so quickly by Kristina who was so helpful and gave me so many recommendations on what to do and where to eat. If you are looking at booking I definitely would! It was super clean and the bath tub on the outside is to die for. I was lucky enough to even feed one of the lambs which really rounded of the whole experience.

Georgia Brady | 31 May 2023

Amazing place 5/5

Such a beautiful place, surrounded by peace and beautiful scenery. There are so many homely extra touches provided such a jam, bread, milk, and wine and the owners are attentive and welcoming which made the stay feel so much more personal. Beautiful sunset from the huts. Being surrounded by the sheep with all there is also a bonus. Can’t wait to book again!

Romney Shepherds Hut 4.8/5

Beautiful shepherds hut, clean, well stocked and in a great location. Children were invited to feed the lambs which was an added bonus. Minor points - Microwave should be added to the list of facilities. Slippers are mentioned but we didn't find any. It would be nice if the toiletries were replenished on turnover. It states that it sleeps 4! We were two adults and two children (7yrs & 3yrs) and one of us had to top and tail with the children on the larger bottom bunk. The photo is a little deceiving as the top bunk is only a single size. With there being no safety rail on the top bunk we couldn't risk putting a child up there. Luckily our children are only small, had they been teenagers we couldn't have stayed. So it needs to be clear that this hut is more suited to three people.

Eve Kindred | 12 April 2023

Overnight family stay 5/5

We had a fantastic stay, the room decor was fantastic and clean. The views and surroundings incredible. We will recommend and come back ourselves. We had the breakfast add on, the sausages, bacon and eggs were top quality. The only small constructive criticism that I can think of would be the bread, a nice crusty loaf or sour dough would take this to the next level.
