The Shepherd’s Hideaway

Sleeps 2 – 6, + baby!

Our brand new Treehouse-on-wheels ! Each room is housed in a beautiful, handbuilt, luxurious oak clad Shepherd’s Hut, (you get 4 Huts/cabins in total, exclusive to you) – all set around a secluded decking area.

NEW – hot tub hire available!

Ideal for families, couples, or 2 couples . Sleeps – up to 6 guests, plus baby or toddler.

Everything is provided to enhance your stay. Smart bedlinen, fluffy towels, beach towels, soap and shower gel, as well as basic kitchen ingredients. All well insulated with cosy sheeps wool, and with good heating, they are perfect for all year round stays. There is plenty of storage under the beds, and many useful hooks and shelves – but don’t bring too much luggage – this is still a step up from glamping – though in great comfort and style!

The Master bedroom occupies it’s own spacious 16ft wood clad Shepherds Hut with comfy double bed, excitingly raised up, with plenty of space for either luggage or a toddler bed underneath; and space to chill out, or for a cot. There is a proper ensuite bathroom at one end, with shower, loo and washbasin and lovely views into the trees. It is all fully heated and cosy too.

The Bunk room is another beautiful wooden 16ft Shepherds Hut. Extremely flexible, it can either provide sleeping space for up to 4 kids or adults – with 2 full size single bunks, plus 2 slightly narrower single bunks.

It also has it’s own ensuite bathroom at one end, with shower, loo and washbasin and lovely views into the trees. It is all fully heated and cosy too.

You would never know, but the loos actually route off to a clever composting system outside, but look and function like a normal loo inside.

The Living room is actually two more beautiful Shepherds Huts joined together to provide a kitchen and living area, heated by a woodburning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and has a cosy dining table with wraparound benches. You can cook on and in the quaint little woodburning stove, or we also provide a gas hob, and microwave to speed things up sometimes ! Oh and just to be as green and natural as we can, there is no dishwasher. Eco friendly products are provided in the kitchen and the bathroom, as the waste water runs away through a reedbed back in the woods. For kitchen food waste, there is a special composting area . The living area has two comfy sofa areas, with French doors leading out onto a sunny decking area for al fresco eating and relaxing.

We have purposefully not installed TV’s, and hope that this will enhance your stay, and encourage conversation and good old fashioned play! However we have included free Wifi, so you can plan your days and keep in touch with the real world if necessary ! Books, puzzles and games are all provided.

Children – kids can run around the paddock and woods to their hearts content and play on the rustic wooden swings and rings. The Hideaway is much more suited to young children than the Treehouse, and has plenty of space for a cot. We have a baby monitor system between the two lockable bedroom cabins.

Babysitting is also available in the day and evening.

Extra guests – why not book the Treehouse too for extra friends or family ? You will have a wonderfully private paddock and all the accommodation just for yourselves – plus we have some gorgeous Bell tents for any more. Perfect for Family get-togethers and large groups. Do contact us for further info.
