Photos from the meadows

Our shepherd’s huts stand in organic ground, untouched by modern day chemicals, where cowslips and bluebells grow, and wild orchids and violets dance amoungst the long feathery grasses.

"Myself and my girlfriend stayed with Liz and John for one night as we where attending a wedding in the local area. We really enjoyed our stay in their Shepard's hut it was clean, cosy and comfortable. John and Liz where extremely helpful and breakfast the next day was delicious. Highly recommend staying to anyone."

"We had a lovely and relaxing time at Liz and John's beautiful Shephards hut. They were very welcoming, friendly hosts and had thought of everything to make sure that we had a good stay. The hut was warm and cosy with a log burner, a fire pit and a compost loo nearby. The breakfast in the barn was delicious! A perfect retreat in the countryside, we would highly recommend. Thanks Liz and John."

"What a fabulous place to stay. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived to when we left, nothing was too much trouble from booking a table for dinner, checking the weather forecast and even getting cups of tea when you needed one. Everything is thought of for a simple, peaceful stay in this lovely area of the Cotswolds. The Shepherds Hut is lovely and the added bonus of the fire pit for those chilly September evenings was perfect. Breakfast is outstanding and a great start to the day if your taking advantage of the beautiful local country walks."

In the unspoilt meadow land you can enjoy the song of nature – the joy of the blackbirds, the passion of the wren and the sounds of the skylarks overhead
