The most relaxing little staycation. Heidi was a wonderful host. The space is much bigger than it looks in photos, and felt very private even with other accommodation on site, with a lovely little garden area - the hot tub was a highlight! The space was spotless and so well thought out and has all you need for a little self-catering getaway. We’ve come away feeling relaxed and reset - thank you!

Had a lovely couple of nights stay here. It was a bit more pricey than my usual picks but after seeing the photos I thought it would be the perfect place to relax for a bit. It was just as shown in the photos. A lovely, immaculate and quirky little space that had everything I needed. In quiet surroundings with a completely private garden space. It felt lovely and secluded but safe and not isolated. The outdoor hot tub/bath was definitely an experience. It took a long time to heat up but was definitely worth it. I kept it simple during my stay and had a walk along the beach (just a 5 min drive) and lunch in a local pub.

We have just enjoyed a lovely 3 night stay here. The area is quiet and picturesque and the cabin was cosy and had all the amenities we needed. The highlight was the wood fired hot tub, would recommend firefighters to get the fire going when it’s cold/wet. Heidi, our host, was excellent and provided us with everything we needed, including extra logs for the fire - within 30mins of asking they were left outside our door. Overall it was a great stay, recommended for anyone wanting a cosy/peaceful getaway from a busy city. We would happily come again!

Really nice, quaint hut on the Isle of Sheppey. Never been before but it was really nice, the video by the host was really helpful along with her response to messages via text. The hot tub was amazing once it got going and stayed baking for ages! Shame you have to pay extra for bringing your fury friend and that is it non-refundable, this is not clear in the description as far as I could see. All-in-all it was nice and we would come again!

We had a beautiful stay here, we only stayed for one night but we wish it could of been longer. It was so peaceful and relaxing we didn’t want to leave. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a meal. Lovely spacious bed that was very clean and neat on arrival. Tv was brilliant as you could watch Netflix and Disney plus. Hot tub was a bit of a pain to heat for us. We lighted it 4 times and it went out all 4 times but on the 5th time we managed to get it alight and kept it alight. The hot tub didn’t take long to heat once the fire was alight. We arrived around 7 so was late by the time we got in the hot tub so I would recommend arriving earlier if you are planning on getting in the hot tub. But over all an amazing and relaxing stay. Lovely host and very good in regards to communication. We will definitely be back!

This place is truly a little gem and I would say it looks better in person when you’re there, me and my wife were immediately surprised and Heidi the host is brilliant and makes you feel so welcome the minute you arrive, the hive which is what we stayed in is like a mini 5 star hotel with how clean and modern it looks. Brilliant log fire hot tub and some wooden loungers that you can’t see in the pictures that are in your own private area so you can enter the hot tub how ever you please… we will 100% come back even if just for one night for a little reset back to reality.

The Hive, an excellent place to stay and Bee relaxed.

We loved the garden, especially the wicker basket chair, which was very relaxing to sit in. We loved the layout of the Hive pod, perfect for the two of us to stay in over the weekend. The Hive was in an ideal location and was a superb base for travelling around the Isle of Sheppey.

Lovely place to stay! 5* service Very responsive owners. Very secluded. It takes 8 mins to walk to the main road. You will need to get taxis if you want get into the nearest town as the roads do not have pavements. The farm shop nearby is walkable, but you do have to walk on the road for 25% of the journey. The pool is lovely on a warm day! It’s open from 10am - 12 and then 3-5pm The fire hottub is great. The amount of wood provided will last you 2 go’s if you’re conservative with it. You will need to bring your own kindle if there is moisture in the air as the fire if difficult to start if it’s been raining. Very peaceful and there are good dog walks nearby as it backs onto fields. Tea/coffees etc is provided. The hut is just about big enough for 2 people and a couple of dogs. Nextflix and Disney accounts are already on the Tv and the wifi is good Would definitely recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cute, private and quiet. Just what we wanted to celebrate our mini moon. We like that it was fenced off and we had our own little private garden.

Nothing about the property. However, it didn’t bother us but good to note the hot tub takes nearly 3 hours to heat up. We would heat in the morning so by afternoon/evening it was perfect

Quiet and private area that guarantees a successful getaway from daily life. Lovely outside garden area for enjoying the sun. The hot tub was phenomenal!

Only a very minor thing, but a fly screen for the entrance door would have been great. Probably less of a problem when you’re not travelling in summer.

We took our 6year old with us and stayed in the Hive, Such an amazing place, we loved staying in a hobbit like house, the hot tub was lovely and enjoyed relaxing in the swing chair listening to the birds. Very clean and well equipped, even more magical when getting dark with the colourful lights. We also like that's its Eco friendly and good use of recycling and nature. Very friendly and helpful hosts with great pre- stay advise on how things work via video and how to find place. Definitely recommend.

Hive hobbit house

The pod was lovely, clean, peaceful. Loved the hobbit house, everything inside perfect.

Hot tub, had warming 4 hours and was luke warm. We used what was given ro get it working and brought firelighters, it was smoking like it was working and had a flame. Came for wedding anniversary and we wanted a hot tub under the stars but only had 10 mins as it was cold. Absolutely gutted or it would of been perfect.

The Hobbit House is very quirky, unique and a different experience. We will be returning in the future.

We loved the idea of heating the hot tube ourselves and being out in the open. It was nice to have a secluded garden. We found the living space very cosy and relaxing, we really enjoyed the local farm shop hamper. The property had everything we needed to stay for the night. We will be definitely visiting again and will highly recommend this to ours friends and family.

We could not fault the property. However, other than the farm shop, there isn’t much to do in the area. If you enjoy walks and bird watching this is a perfect getaway.

We had a great stay for my boyfriend’s 40th birthday. The hot tub was amazing and the whole place was really clean, quiet and cosy. The garden felt super private but not 100% secure if you have a dog who is good at getting through hedges! Not a complaint as we were fine keeping Brolin on a long lead, but just something to be aware of. We wished we could have stayed longer and will definitely be back.

The hobbit house was very clean and the bedding smelt fresh. The host was very helpful and friendly. I was impressed by the amount of useful tools in the small kitchen such as plastic wine glasses, bottle openers etc. The attention to detail was very good and so helpful to already have tv set up with netflix etc. We had a lovely visit and would look to stay again. Thank you Hedi

The mattress was a-little uncomfy. would be better to replace with a memory foam mattress. The rest of the bedding was excellent and clean. If the mattress was better the stay would have been a 10

This was the perfect weekend away! Heidi sent a really fab message prior to our arrival with all the info we needed to find the pod and settle in. It was very clean and comfy, much larger inside than it looks! All the utilities and crockery you could need. Bed was comfy and the hot tub is amazing, getting very hot for a long time! There was a bit of noise overnight but we realised this to be the air freshener, Heidi called to check after we left and apologised for this. It didn’t at all ruin the stay and was only a trivial little thing, however, she really cared that we were comfy the entire stay and that there had been a small amount of noise, which was incredibly kind of her.
