Peaceful rural location with far reaching views over rolling countryside on a family beef/sheep farm. A great place to relax, unwind and switch off in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Tucked away on a working family farm the Shepherd's Huts have privacy in a peaceful rural setting with fantastic views over rolling countryside. Well equipped each hut gives you a chance to get away from it all, switch off, relax and be a one with nature. The Huts are far enough apart for complete privacy but close enough if two couples wish to holiday together.
Wake to bird song and the occasional sheep bleat, drift off to an owl hoot or fox bark in the wood below. Amazing sunsets and some wonderful star lit skies. Guests are welcome to enjoy the farm and to meet the animals.
Lambing time is popular when guests, if they want, can watch a birth (lambing mid April to mid May). We have Clun Forest sheep and a composting business.
