The Owner Says

Our handmade shepherd hut is ideal for an unforgettable break in the countryside for couples and small families alike.  There is ample room for two adults in a kingsize bed and a small bunk above for a child.   We supply all bedding, you only need to bring towels. 
We are happy for larger families to squeeze in to the shepherd hut, you are welcome to bring an airbed to sleep an extra child, there is not extra charge for extra people.  The shepherd hut garden has plenty of room for a tent for older children, or perhaps a family camping and granny and granddad sleeping in the shepherd hut.   Camping is charged at our camping rate and is bookable separately or you are welcome to contact us directly. 
The kitchen area comes with a range of appliances: a small sink with running water, single gas hob, pretty china crockery, kitchen and cooking utensils.
You can stay warm and toasty in front the wood burning stove.
The views from the stable door and garden toward Wistlandpound Reservoir are truly breathtaking.
Outside the hut boasts its own fenced garden, private fire pit, seating and gated access to the stream and just added for 2019 is a lovely wood fired hot tub with L.E.D lighting.
Dogs are welcome.  We are a working farm with livestock in all the surrounding fields, we like to be sure that you understand that dogs need to be kept on a lead or under close control at all times.  Please select on the extras list if you're bringing a dog with you.
We have a lovely toilet block a short walk from the shepherd hut.  It has roomy showers and toilets, is kept beautifully clean and toasty warm, with central heating which runs all year.  Also in the toilet block in an information desk, fridge freezer, honesty shop during school holidays and busy times and games to borrow and swap.
