Ashford | Kent
Escape from the hustle and bustle of every day electronic life and indulge in the beauty and tranquillity of nature.. Without the distractions of phones, internet and TV you can completely unwind, de-stress and soak up the peace, quiet and far reaching countryside views (although 4G should be available if you need it).

A beautifully presented shepherd’s hut, Rumwold is one of a pair of huts, located on the edge of Romney Marsh with its big skies and far reaching views. A chance to go “off grid” and be free from everyday stresses Rumwold, along with its sister The Lookerer, sits appropriately in a sheep meadow with wonderful views across the marsh and up to the ridge where you will find Lympne Castle which was built in the 1080's for the Archdeacons of Canterbury. Bright, warm and inviting with all the necessary amenities, a well thought out kitchenette and living area with a lovely wood burning stove, plus a thoughtful welcome pack of local produce, this Shepherds hut is a delightfully romantic base for your holiday in Kent.

In The Area

There’s 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 Channel Bike Hire 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.
