In January 2016 we were delighted to welcome a new addition to our glamping family. Meet Poppy, our beautiful new Shepherds Hut!
Available all year round, this bespoke, British-made Shepherds Hut offers the perfect countryside sanctuary, whatever the weather.
Inside you will find a a generously sized double bed with all necessary bedding, along with plenty of storage space underneath.
Poppy also features a bijoux kitchen area with cold running water, butler sink, cupboards, wooden worktop, toaster, kettle and induction hob. There is a fold away wooden table and two wooden chairs, and all crockery and cutlery is provided. There is also a slow cooker for your convenience. A plug in cool box is also provided.
June 2016 saw the addition of yet another Shepherds hut - Forget-me-not.
Forget-me-not is a 4 berth Shepherds hut but built to the same specifications as Poppy.
The extra two beds are bunk beds but are sturdy enough to sleep adults with no problem.
Poppy is powered by mains electricity, but you will also find a beautiful log burner inside to keep you warm and snug. Logs, kindling and firelighters are all provided.
Forget-me-not is mains electricity but also has a logburner.
Sunflower joined the fleet in 2018. Also 4 berth with the same foot print as Forget me not, but is bigger offering more space to include a sofa in the furnishings.
And finally October 2019 saw the arrival of Daisy - another 2 berth Shepherds hut.
This has been built basically to the same spec as Poppy but is solar powered only with back up batteries. There is a single gas ring in the Shepherds hut for heating up water etc but the log burner is double ringed and you can cook on it. There is still a plug in cool box but no toaster as you can do that on the log burner!
We feel this will offer more adventure and authenticity to glamping. However, as a back up, there is also an external kitchen to the Shepherds hut offering 2 double ringed gas cookers.
The price of Daisy is reflected in the price in the absence of mains electricity.
During warmer months you may enjoy eating your meals al fresco. Guests of Poppy, Forget-me-not, Sunflower and Daisy have access to an individual outside area featuring a fire pit/BBQ and table and chairs.
All you need to bring with you to complete your glamping experience is a towel, a torch, a pair of wellies and some slippers.
Picnic tables and chairs
Campfire pit with BBQ
Firewood and logs are provided in generous amounts but an additional cost is required for extra.
Shower/toilet block with electricity and mains water.
