Book the Shepherd's Hut or Higler Hut

Higler hut

I made the Higler hut last year, inspired by 19 C stories of local chicken dealers (Higlers) that scoured the area looking for birds! It is built almost entirely from recycled materials, becoming more of an art work for me. Lined and clad in Cedar wood it has its own natural aromatic properties that immediately puts you into a relaxed mood. The Higler hut is designed for couples only, who want to get away for few days of comfortable relaxation, reading and sleeping, and who enjoy simple pleasures associated with the countryside and being outdoors. The hut is off grid and set well away from the rest of the camping areas, under the partial shade of an old oak tree. It is simply laid out with a French Double bed, Chilly Billy wood burner, comfy seats and reading lights. There is a single burner gas cooker for kettle boiling and simple cooking and sink. Outside there is a BBQ, fire pit and grid, picnic bench, shower and eco toilet. To enquire for bookings please email us or use the enquiry/availability widget.


The Shepherd’s Hut

Our fantastic 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 all kitchen basics and a welcome pack can be ordered seperately, which usually includes our fresh farm eggs, juice, bread, butter, milk, cereal.

Our Hut provides accommodation for 2 adults and 2 children with a double bed and separate bunk room, a kitchenette with gas cooker, dining area and a unique recycled woodstove, hot shower cubicle (bring towels). We provide the bed linen & duvet for the double bed and single duvets, bottom sheet and pillows for children (under 16). The hut has its own clean eco compost toilet in a stylish beach hut with a poesy of fresh flowers!

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). Prices from £75 per night low season to £90 per night high season for full occupancy. Minimum two night stays and check special deals either directly or on the availability widget for longer stays and midweek breaks.

We had a wonderful ten days stay looking forward to the next stay thank you Mark & Sue had a great time
