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

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.

The valley shepherds hut is set in calcareous grassland which hosts wild flowers such as egg and bacon, orchids, bluebells and cowslips. Also during May the wild broom flowers a beautiful yellow.

Tents only available for September. Next year the main tent will have a wood burner so will be up from March to October

Hi all, i've been brave and invested in new bed linen for the valley hut! This specific bedding is for guests with doggies. We've always had an issue with the bright orange clay that sits around that hut that can ruin duvet sets if doggy puts a paw up.

Well i say i've been brave because i've bought sort of clay coloured bedding!!! Actually more of a mustard bottom sheet and then mustard and dark green duvet sets. Rather risky stepping away from the white sheets but i feel i want to be able to welcome people with dogs without the hang up of asking them to bring their own set or pay a big deposit.

Can't wait to try them out woo hoo!
