This property is in a peaceful countryside setting enabling space to breath fresh air and recharge your batteries. We understand that sometimes peace, tranquility are time all on your own without seeing anyone else is all that is required so we respect privacy and time to ones self, however we offer a warm welcome and a chat if you fancy that too.

The space
The bespoke, handmade Shepherd Hut is set within a beautiful garden with views of our paddocks. The Hut comes with a private 4/5 person, wood fired hot tub which makes it the perfect getaway to unwind and relax, soaking away any tension or stress under the stars. The tub takes around 2.5/3 hours to heat depending on weather conditions, however we can prepare this for you with prior arrangement, please mention at time of booking.
Please note - one nights fuel included free of charge but extra can purchased at £10 each bag. Only our fuel to be used due to the delicate nature of the wood fired hot tub elements.

The Shepherd Hut comes with a comfortable double bed, and fun drop down single bed for a smaller person or child. It also comes complete with handmade kitchen area with small oven/hob, fridge, kettle, toaster plus all you need to prepare your own food.

My vision was to offer beautiful bespoke features & tranquil surroundings which would enable as many people as possible to stay with us.

Other things to note
This is a family home but the Shepherds Hut, its gardens, patio, outdoor kitchen area and hot tub cannot be overlooked & are totally screened off for privacy. Guests have given feedback that they feel secluded.
