No 2 Shepherd Hut is a warm and comfortable traditional shepherd's hut which sleeps two in the village of Cumnor, 3.5 miles from Oxford Station. Enjoy the best of both worlds with the peace and quiet of the countryside, and the closeness of Oxford with its ancient buildings and variety of restaurants and pubs. The hut is in a paddock with another hut, next to a farm track and fields, close to two local pubs, and a village shop and organic butcher. Plenty of local walks (guide book supplied).

The space
The space is self-contained with the bed, living space and bathroom all in the Hut - no need to go outside for the loo or a shower! It has wifi. There are a couple of chairs to sit outside, and and also a barbeque for guests' use (please bring your own charcoal, or let us know if you're coming by public transport and wish to use it). As there are two shepherd huts in the paddock, some guests like to visit with friends. Inside there is a small fridge, microwave, kettle, crockery and cutlery and an electric log-effect heater which warms the hut up in minutes at the flick of a switch. Tea/coffee and milk, towels, and shower gel are included.

Guest access
Minimum of two nights' stay please. Because we both work we generally prefer arrivals on Friday or Saturday/Sunday - but please ask if you would like to arrive during the week as we can arrange that easily.

I'm from the north west and moved to Oxfordshire about 15 years ago when I married. My husband is a farmer, and our house is in between the two main farmhouses on the family farm. I work at the University of Oxford - which is a relief after many years' commuting to London. I appreciate my own space and time to relax, and think guests will too.

During your stay
This is an ideal place to wind down and chill out. We will meet guests on arrival and give them a run-through of how everything works. The paddock adjoins our home, so we are around if needed, but equally will respect our guests' privacy.
