Set in a one-acre farm meadow, this two-person shepherd’s hut features an interior reminiscent of an old country cottage: a chunky Welsh dresser, deep armchairs and a stack of logs that will keep the fire going until morning. Step outside, and you will find a firepit for late-night s’mores toasting and a BBQ for farm-shop steak. Best yet, as there's just one hut on the site, you’ve the whole place to yourself! There’s lots of space to kick back beside the hut and it’s a quick stroll down the meadow path to a modern toilet and shower – watched along the way by your neighbours: sheep, chickens and a single pet deer that thinks she’s part of the flock. Visit the shepherd's hut in springtime, and you will have the added bonus of buoyant lambs on the farm too.
Candles beside the bed, board games for rainy days and a digital radio on standby make the shepherd’s hut a great getaway for couples, but it’s walkers that are most in their element. There are plenty of opportunities to strike out right from the hut – from Crome Hill and Axe Edge Moor to the Three Shires Heads (the hilltop point where Derbyshire, Staffordshire, and Cheshire all meet), while nearby Buxton provides a popular café stops for lunch. The village of Flash also has a decent café and pub, and since it’s the highest point in England you can convince yourself the walking will all be easy downhill, too. No doubt the epic views will quickly make you realise otherwise.

The Owner Says

The two-person hut is located in a rural setting, on a one-acre meadow farm. It comes complete with a double bed (bedding and towels are provided), hot water, wood-burner indoors and firepit outside (from which to enjoy the breathtaking scenery). There are board games and a digital radio (plus two chairs to relax in whilst playing or listening). Just a short 100 metres stroll from the hut is a modern toilet and shower; toiletries are provided.
There's electricity, allowing for a kettle (tea and coffee are complimentary); grab a mug and make a cuppa. When hunger strikes, rustle something up in the microwave, or pop a piece of bread in the toaster; on warmer days there's a gas BBQ for cook-outs and a picnic table for alfresco dining. There's a fridge in the nearby garage for guests to use. Driving to the site? There's ample parking, at no charge. If you fancy heading out on two wheels, bring your bike (there's plenty of storage too). You can also connect to our WIFI.

Picturesque Hollinsclough village is a short stroll away, while Macclesfield Forest (20 mins drive) offers a wealth of outdoor activities and wildlife to spot, including the heronry at Trentabank Reservoir.
