About our shepherds huts

Both huts are heated by a wood burner, have hot running water and an ensuite with shower and composting toilet. For cooking there is the gas hob and cooker with grill. There is also a fridge. The huts run from 12v solar power. There are 12v sockets for charges.

Our 2 shepherds huts have been beautifully built by The Shepherds Hut Company in Devon. They have hand built bespoke kitchenettes, composting toilet and good size shower. Hot water, hob and oven run by gas. LED lights and fridge run by solar power. There is a cosy wood burner to keep you warm. All wood supplied. The shepherds huts are set in stunning locations. One in a 10 acre private woodland and the other on the valley hillside with beautiful views. Our huts are aimed at people who want a wild tranquil escape. They are 1/2km away from the nearest road and dwelling.

The woodland shepherds hut is set in a sunny glade with mature oak trees. During the spring, anemones, orchids, primroses, bluebells carpet the woodland floor. The woodland hut sleeps 2 adults and 2 young children.

Julie Page - thought this might interest you

Our bell tent will primarily be available for single use up until Thursday 6th August. We will be erecting the other tent during that week so will work around bookings. For now i've blocked out 5th and 6th but could do the Monday and Tuesday if a booking comes in.

We are delayed because i have broken my big toe which is super helpful at peak time and harvest time!

With camping and glamping i am deciding to close off calendars (mainly the camping) when we have more people in the bell tents to keep the woodland a special space and not to overload with lots of guests. Of course our tents will take priority but when we have a quieter time such as 1 family in the tent we could rent the camping space out for a couple.

Yes priority does go to people booking both tents as i can't rent each tent out to different guests but if no booking that week then of course 1 tent can go to a family of 4 or a couple.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new special space in the woodland 🙂
