Inspired by our original shepherd’s hut, we found a local carpenter to build a new hut to deliver a luxury glamping experience and yet retaining the authenticity of the original.
The furnishings are unique and have been designed and hand printed by textile designer Liz Lippiatt, in her studio in Stroud (web link). The curtains are soft buttercup yellow printed with ‘tree bud’ stripes and the bedcover is a distinctive ‘tree lace’ design in vibrant ‘bluebird blue’. The double bed slides back to become a comfortable sofa. The large hut is well insulated, cosy and warm, and has a wood burner for cool evenings. There is an ensuite shower with plenty of hot water and a private eco ‘throne-loo’ just outside.
There is a kettle, cafetiere and toaster and mini butler sink with a kitchen cupboard full of cooking utensils and crockery. Welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk & organic biscuits is provided. A breakfast hamper with fruit and continental breakfast is included and homemade shepherd’s pie or fisherman’s pie for 2 can be pre-ordered. All bed-linen is provided for the comfortable double bed as well as towels and toiletries. Through the little iron gate, made for us in the local forge, there is a bush shelter under the trees, with gas barbecue provided for your use. The forge also made our beautiful fire pit, outside the hut, ready for toasted marshmallows! There is seating outside and a table.
A breakfast hamper is provided with continental breakfast and fresh fruit and coffee. There is also the option of coming into the barn for a pre-booked full English breakfast at an extra £7.50 per person. Just let us know beforehand.
Guests are free to enjoy our garden and paddock. There is wireless internet access in and near the house, but the shepherd's hut is probably not close enough .... might be a good thing if you want some isolation!
