The Hotel Inspector, 2 May 2024, Channel 5, “East Sussex Shepherds Huts”

Channel 5

The Hotel Inspector returns with a new episode, taking us to East Sussex and introducing us to Anna and Nick, owners of a struggling Shepherds Huts business. Alex Polizzi, the legendary hotel inspector, visits their site for her very first glamping experience and is determined to help turn their fortunes around.

In this episode, airing on Channel 5 on Thursday 2 May, Alex encounters a unique alternative camping business set in stunning ancient woodland. Nick and Anna, faced with financial difficulties, built this eco-friendly venture 15 years ago after their marquee company went bust. Despite the beauty of the location and the craftsmanship of the hand-crafted huts, the business is hurtling towards huge losses and the couple is working tirelessly to avoid closure.

Alex recognises the potential in their eco-friendly space and believes that the huts themselves are the key to profitability. She calls upon experts and devises a strategy to revitalise the business, aiming to bring in more customers and allow Anna and Nick much-needed time with their family. The couple has invested everything into this dream, and Alex’s intervention comes at a crucial juncture.
