Details

Two very unique vintage shepherds wagons which have been lovingly restored offering a special farm stay with stunning views across the Kent Downs near to Dover and Canterbury.

Greenhill Glamping is set on our family farm in the beautiful location of the Alkham Valley on the Kent Downs near to Dover in an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty".

'Shepherd's Watch' is over 120 years old and has been lovingly restored by ourselves offering you a cosy hideaway oozing with charm and character. Shepherd’s Watch sits in its own private grass meadow with stunning views across our farm and the Kent Downs. It’s very spacious inside and has been furnished with bespoke features to a very high standard. You have all the comforts you can’t live without as well as added luxuries such as a king-size bed and Nespresso coffee machine. The hut has been insulated with sheeps wool and has a wood-burner with a plentiful supply of logs to keep you warm and cosy. We want your stay in our shepherd’s hut to be as relaxing as possible and there are lots of little extra touches to give a real feeling of luxury.

'Ploughman's Retreat' is an original ploughman’s wagon from the 19th Century which has been recently restored by ourselves. It is nestled into the bank and surrounded by picturesque & private views of our farm in the Alkham Valley. Our own restoration has ensured that this hut oozes individual character. The hut has vintage and antique furniture inside and a hand-crafted seat made from sleepers nestled into the bank outside making the perfect spot to watch the sun go down. Inside the hut comes with all the comforts you can’t live without and a cosy king-size bed.

We want your stay in our shepherd’s hut to be as relaxing as possible with lots of little extra touches to give a real feeling of luxury.

Our shepherd’s hut is not any ordinary glamping site. We have sympathetically restored the hut re-using as many of the original materials as possible whilst also bringing it up to the 21st century.

This has included insulating the walls with sheep’s wool, stylishly decorating using Farrow and Ball paints, luxury additions including a home-from-home en-suite shower, heated towel rail and also a handmade luxury king size bed with goose down duvet and pillows.
