The Owner Says
The two-person hut is located in a rural setting, on a one-acre meadow farm. It comes complete with a double bed (bedding and towels are provided), hot water, wood-burner indoors and firepit outside (from which to enjoy the breathtaking scenery). There are board games and a digital radio (plus two chairs to relax in whilst playing or listening). Just a short 100 metres stroll from the hut is a modern toilet and shower; toiletries are provided.
There's electricity, allowing for a kettle (tea and coffee are complimentary); grab a mug and make a cuppa. When hunger strikes, rustle something up in the microwave, or pop a piece of bread in the toaster; on warmer days there's a gas BBQ for cook-outs and a picnic table for alfresco dining. There's a fridge in the nearby garage for guests to use. Driving to the site? There's ample parking, at no charge. If you fancy heading out on two wheels, bring your bike (there's plenty of storage too). You can also connect to our WIFI.

Beautiful, homely and relaxing
Immediately fell in love with this spot. Stunning countryside, gorgeous friendly animals, cosy well equipped shepherds hut and a warm welcome from Faye. All the family were friendly yet let us just enjoy their patch of heaven. Faye’s animals added to our stay so much. Chickens, goats and a 3 legged deer were affectionate and comical. We spent a glorious few days just chilling by the fire, playing games and reading. We could have easily done more walks and adventuring but were truly happy at Gollin’s farm soaking in nature. Highly recommend. We will return. No complaints at all . Faye is very generous, kind, down to earth , accommodating host.
A comfortable and relaxing short stay in beautiful surroundings
We stayed in the Shepherd's hut for 2 nights in June. Faye really made sure the hut was kitted with everything you would need and more, and the toilet and shower facilities across the field and fridge filled with goodies was excellent. The firepit was lovely for the summer evenings. The location is lush and peaceful area. Ideal for walks straight from the hut if you do not wish to drive. Some great views in good weather! We fell in love with the animals and their personalities- they made our stay! We will be recommending Faye's hut to our family and friends and would love to visit again ourselves!
Omg...what more can we say but amazing,fantastic and 1 of the best short breaks we,ve ever had.we loved it.Perfect location,immaculate shepherds hut and Faye is the best hostess. We will definitely go back again. And will be recommending her to all our family and friends. Thankyou Faye.xx
Peaceful location with beautiful views
We’ve just had 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. An idyllic setting and perfectly located for travelling to Buxton, Bakewell and Chatsworth. We walked up Chromer Hill (with a few stops on the way up!) the start of the walk is only a mile away and the 360* views when you reach the top is definitely worth the effort. There was plenty of wood provided for using the campfire and barbecue and it was fab having animal neighbours who were tame and friendly. It’s not very often you get to make friends with a deer 🦌 We loved our glamping experience…thanks Faye x
Everything you could need
There could be a list to tell you everything that Faye was so thoughtful to include. Besides the basics which are already highlighted on any website, Faye is an amazing person, thoughtful and caring, there was eggs bacon and milk as well as butter, jam and marmalade. Towels !! I really can't praise Faye enough, she is a rare and beautiful person.
