Enjoy a luxury break in a wildlife reserve in Kent, with a unique shepherd's hut stay – includes animal park access and use of a golf buggy

For intrepid adventurers, look no further than this wild Kent haven. Sleep among Asian animals in a luxury shepherd's hut set within the 600-acre Port Lympne Reserve. Catch hog deer, Mishmi takin, sambar, barasingha and Asian water buffalo gently ambling past your hut, with wolves, bears, tigers, gorillas, giraffe and zebra waiting to be discovered during your stay.

With use of your own golf buggy and exclusive access, you can spend your days leisurely exploring this vast reserve before and after visitor hours, on the hunt to catch a glimpse of these exotic creatures. You’ll also have access to the sister park, Howletts Wild Animal Park, just outside of Canterbury.

Looking out over the Asian watering hole, sit on the steps of your hut or recline on your sofa with the family, while ticking off the animals that wander past. Spend your evenings watching the sun sink behind the water before heading to Port Lympne Hotel for a cocktail with stunning views over the Kent coast.

The Hog Deer Creek Shepherd's hut is a surprisingly well-appointed space that retains its rustic sensibilities. Undeniably charming, you’ll find a cosy double bed topped with two bunks – perfect for a pair of little ones. The bright interior features a comfy sofa and HD TV, plus plenty of windows for gazing out at the passing wildlife. A log burner also makes for toasty nights indoors, while Bamford amenities add a touch of luxury to the en-suite shower room.

Choose from a host of bars, from the Treehouse Club to the Port Lympne Hotel, which offers stunning views over the Kent coast.


Located in the Kent Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Port Lympne Reserve is an outdoor treat. The reserve is around a 20-minute drive from Folkestone and less than two hours away from London.
