Two Night Shepherd’s Hut Glamping and Half Day Safari for Two
Escape to a wildlife treasure trove in the Knepp Wildland Project and stay in a spacious shepherd’s hut on the edge of an ancient woodland. During your break, join the resident ecologist with a small group to head out for a morning or night time safari, and spot the varied wildlife of the local area. First, settle into your cosy hut built using recycled flooring from Knepp Castle, complete with a double bed, feather bedding, a wood burning stove (kettle and coffee maker included) for two nights. One morning or evening, join Penny Green and a small group for a wildlife safari which are likely to include sightings of free-roaming cattle, ponies, deer, pigs. Birds such as red kites, buzzards and ravens are also abundant and a cake stop is included.
