Handmade entirely from one single ash tree – that blew down on the farm several years ago – Abberton Shepherd’s Hut manages the rare feat of looking traditional in its old orchard setting, whilst subtly offering all the modern comforts of a luxury holiday: en-suite bathroom, a modern kitchen space and a balcony with views all the way to Bredon Hill in the Cotswolds. What really makes Abberton super special are the small touches that owner, Catriona Sutherland, has woven into the hut. Exposed ash wood throughout creates a cosy setting, while the décor, crockery and wood-burning stove lend it all a farm-house type feel.
Away from the abode, there’s over 260-acres of the farm’s land to explore – including egg collecting from the hens, which the kids will love. Head further afield to enjoy the Cotswolds and the Malvern Hills, or start from the hut and walk the three-mile route to Inkberrow for a confusingly named pair of pubs: The Bulls Head and The Old Bull. The latter, a white, half-timbered, low-ceilinged affair claims to be the inspiration for the fictional ‘Bull’ in The Archers on BBC Radio 4 and is dotted with memorabilia.
