A beautifully presented shepherd’s hut, Rumwold is one of a pair of huts, located on the edge of atmospheric Romney Marsh with its big skies and romantic tales of smugglers made famous by the Rev Dr Syn. A chance to go “off grid” and be free from Wifi and television although you should have 4G coverage - Rumwold, along with its sister Lookerer, sits appropriately in a sheep meadow with 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 and cosy 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 Shepherd’s hut is a delightfully romantic base for your holiday in Kent.  The Lookerer is the sister hut and can be found here    Shop: 3 miles  Pub: 2.8 miles  Coast: 3.6 miles

Out and About: There’s plenty 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 Dungerness, the oldest of their reserves is also a fantastic spot for ornithologists. An uphill cycle will get you to the Historic Lympne Castle and nearby 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 your homeowner for 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. 



We had a lovely stay in the Rumwold Shepherds Hut. All of the little touches made such a difference; wine, bread, butter, jam and wood for the fire. The surroundings were so peaceful, lovely walks and fresh air. Will definitely recommend. Thank you!

Mrs F,

Very welcoming owner. The accommodation is quirky and very cosy. It is well equipped with a helpful welcome pack containing essentials. The opportunity to bottle feed the lambs was an added bonus that was much appreciated. This is luxury accommodation on a working farm. My wife being a member of the spinning and knitting community it was good for her to buy local wool for her next project.

Mr A,

Very welcoming very comfortable relaxing break in natural surrounding
