Highway Hill is a family-run business aimed at people who love the outdoors. We’re located within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a stunning landscape of ancient woods, gently meandering chalk springs, and rolling downland, offering peace, quiet and relaxation. Staying at Highway Hill in one of our shepherd’s huts or bell tents is a very special experience. You can choose a traditionally-built shepherd’s hut or spend a night under canvas in one of our very spacious bell tents.
Each of our Shepherds huts are uniquely designed and crafted individually ensuring they reflect the heritage of the downland landscape.
With comfort being the main priority each shepherds hut has been fitted with a kitchen equipped with all the essentials, including cutlery and crockery (we also provide towels). We will supply you with half a dozen farm fresh eggs and a pint of milk for your arrival. If you are staying in a shepherds hut then these will be in the fridge or the electric cooler in your hut. Enjoy your evening sitting out with your own barbecue watching the sun set behind the surrounding fields, woods and Wiltshire’s famous rolling downland. Once the cool evening air greets you, curl up under your Egyptian cotton bed linen, enjoying both the toasty warmth and ambience of the hut’s wood burner. The perfect way to prepare for bedtime, snug inside your very own shepherd’s hut, with the sound of nature soothing you into a deep and restful sleep.
We have washroom facilities such as toilets (with disabled access), showers, washing up facilities and a kitchen area (by the office), BBQs, fire pit and a hammock are also available for your use. Guests are welcome to bring their own charcoal for the barbecues, but logs and kindling for the fire pit and woodburning stoves are supplied on site.
Explore the nearby attractions such as Bowood House, with its gardens and much loved adventure playground and the Georgian city of Bath with its spa and grand architecture – all an easy drive away. Closer to home there are networks of footpaths and bridleways which gets you out into our own beautiful local landscape, leading to magical places such as our local White Horse, one of eight still visible in Wiltshire.
