The Owner Says

A lovely, cosy, romantic hut.  For couples or families.  With a wood fired hot tub.

The Drovers Hut has sleeping for 5-6, including a king size bed, single bunks and a trestle bed which pulls out from under the main king size bed.  There is also room to pitch a tent below to decking for extra friends and family or older children. 

It has a gorgeous country kitchen with Belfast sink, solid oak worktop, dresser top, two burner gas hob, a table and benches and a wonderful wood burning range stove with oven and hobs above.  Lighting is powered by solar panels and candles for added ambience.  The kitchen is equipped with pots and pans, utensils, crockery and cutlery.  We have also added a games cupboard with cards and board games.

All the beds have comfy memory foam mattresses, plump pillows and are made up with quality linen.

The drovers hut is fitted out beautifully, in a lovely peaceful corner of the field, has a decking area which has two gates to secure it for dogs or children, outdoor seating, table, fire pit and bbq.
