All guests will be asked to complete a Covid health and safety questionnaire which will be emailed to them, this must be returned immediately prior to your arrival.

On arrival the guests will be greeted by the host and shown to the glamping area adhering to the social distancing guidelines.

Our hot tub will be available for use by guests following Government guidelines allowing outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs to reopen. Once open we will ensure that prior to your arrival that the tub and it’s surrounding surfaces are sanitised. Full guidance on the use of the tub will be provided prior to your arrival.

For the foreseeable future there will now be a minimum stay of two nights. Cleanliness and hygiene safety control is paramount and there will be a 24 hr gap between any guests arriving at our glamping hut. This will be reviewed back to a one night minimum stay over the coming months depending on the government guidelines.

All food preparations provided by the host will be handled by wearing gloves and mask with the correct hand washing guidelines before.

All bed linen/ towels/tea towels must be placed within the bag provided by the host on departure.

All washing up of used plates, mugs, pots and pans, knives and forks and cooking utensils must be washed up by using hot water and detergent provided by the host. The items used can then be removed on departure by the host and sterilised before returning back to the cooking area.

Arrival times will stay the same - 2pm arrival, departure 11am.

If you’re looking for a secluded, romantic glamping experience with a difference, then Escape & Retreat at Frenches Farm offers just that and more!

Our luxury Shepherds Hut is situated in a quiet, elevated position at Frenches Farm near Andover, Hampshire amidst wonderful countryside and boasts amazing views over the rolling hills of the North Wessex Downs.

The Shepherds Hut has been described by our guests as “Fantastic”. Arrive, open the door, and you’re greeted by the warm glow of the cast-iron stove, complimentary home-made goodies, a very large and comfortable king-size bed, table and seating along with a welcoming glass of bubbles perhaps to be shared in the wood-fired hot tub later in the evening…

The wood-fired, wooden hot tub is incredibly popular, and a very relaxing way to wind-down, especially in the evenings when you might just catch one of our spectacular sunsets or a view of a star filled sky.

There’s no roughing it either! Tucked away directly behind the Hut in The Spinney is the Shower Shack, which provides a full size shower, changing area, loo and washbasin. Cooking utensils are provided for cooking meals either on our gas-fired hotplate in the BBQ Shack, or outside on the charcoal-fired BBQ kettle.

Once you’ve prepared your meal, you have the choice of sitting inside the Hut at the table, or enjoying your food al-fresco, perhaps warmed by the chimnea. If you choose not to cook, we can provide you with a hamper - just ask!

For breakfast, we’ll stock the fridge with delicious locally produced bacon, free range eggs fresh from the farm and fresh orange juice.

Being situated in the countryside, there’s great walking available, you don’t need to bring the car! There’s a map to help you find your way around. Local pubs in Smannell, Hurstbourne Tarrant, Stoke and St. Mary Bourne are all reachable by foot.

Your hosts Charlie and Anna White run Frenches Farm, a working farm with acres of arable crops, livestock and an equestrian facility, and Anna manages Escape & Retreat. If you’re interested in the workings of the farm, we’d be delighted to show you around…

…but you may well be busy simply Escaping & Retreating in our little hideaway!
