The Owner Says
During the 1800's Shepherd huts were seen across the English countryside and were originally designed as accommodation during the lambing season, offering shelter for both the shepherd tending to his flocks and new born lambs.
Sheep Dreams Shepherds Hut is a bespoke hand crafted, spacious getaway that makes the most perfect romantic retreat. Sleeping two in a luxurious king size bed the hut offers its own kitchen area with a quaint Belfast sink and granite worktop so you can have some tea and toast without having to venture out.
A wood burner with logs supplied will keep you snug and warm why you lie down and listen to birdsong and the crackle of the kindling on the fire. Electric is in the hut and free Wi-Fi for those who should want to use it. Easy reach of the shared facilities and car parking.
All guests share 2 luxury shower rooms and one bathroom with gorgeous roll-top bath (basin and toilet in each room).
We want your stay to be as relaxing and hassle-free as possible so we provide little extras to make your stay an enjoyable one. We supply bed linen, towels, basic toiletries, logs and kindling for the stove, and the kitchen is well equipped with a fridge freezer, oven, microwave, kettle and utensils.
