Our bespoke Shepherd’s Hut provides an ideal romantic getaway for couples looking to escape to the countryside or for families that don’t quite do camping!

In summer evenings enjoy a glass of wine around a camp fire in the river meadow while the children are tucked up in bed. It is positioned at the top of the river meadow, distanced from the campers. We provide a welcome pack which usually includes fresh farm eggs, bread, butter, milk, cereal and some fire wood to get you started.

In winter we move the hut lakeside, where it becomes a cosy retreat for adults.

Shepherd’s Hut sleeps a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children (under 16 years old).

Pumpkin Harvest and Jam Making - Half Term Special
To celebrate the harvest, guests can pick their own farm grown pumpkin to carve and then help to prepare into a sweet pie or soup to cook and eat. At dusk light a tea light and see the scary design glow in the dark! The next day, forage the farms field hedgerows for blackberries, sloes, hips n haws and add to the farm picked apples to extract the juice, then learn and help to turn it into a delicious jelly and fill jars to taste and takeaway. Delicious on scones, toast or accompaniment to cheese or meat.

3 nights in October available for £270 for a 3 night stay, based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing. An extra £25pp for these harvest activities (2 night stay minimum).
