The original shepherd’s huts have been around for hundreds of years, consisting usually of a timber floor with wriggly tin walls and roof, and large wheels allowing them to be drawn up onto pastures and moorland. Simply furnished with a basic day bed and a small stove, the huts were used by farmers and shepherds when there was a need to be close to livestock grazing away from the steading.
These days, shepherd’s huts, old and new, are often offered as glamping sites, where guests can enjoy the wonders of the natural world in a little more luxury than a canvas tent.
Our shepherd hut was hand-crafted by Stockman Shepherd Huts. We would highly recommend them.
We are not a campsite, but we do accept the occasional tent, so it's worth contacting us to ask. If it's for friends/family of people staying at the hut, you can stay near the hut, but if not it will be kept well away from the hut, a good few fields away. We have 26 acres and it's important to us to give you your own space.
Millions of people enjoy camping, immersing themselves in our natural environment and living as simply as possible - a break from the stress of modern living. It is great fun, but if you get unlucky with the weather it can be miserable. There’s often not much room in your tent to get wet clothes dry, that’s if you’re lucky enough to have a tent that hasn’t leaked all over your bedding! Glamping, on the other hand, gives you all the peace and tranquility to be found living with nature, but with the comforts of a warm and waterproof space, with a comfy bed, cooking facilities and an indoor loo. So you can get on with enjoying the great outdoors whatever the weather, knowing you can get warm and dry at the end of your adventures.
The word ‘glamping’ is a blend of ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’. Our glamping site offers all the fun of camping in a tent with the additional luxury of electricity, a comfy bed, shower and loo, kitchenette and above all, a warm dry space to live in.
People go glamping to enjoy all the benefits of a stay in the countryside with some of the comforts of home to boot.
