Shepherd’s Huts were introduced in the 19th Century when shepherds would travel with their flock of sheep, away from habitation.  The idea was borne out of the necessity for the shepherd to have somewhere to sleep, eat and store his equipment and equally important, that ‘somewhere’ had to be mobile, in order to go with him.  The Shepherd’s Hut was his home away from home, with an open-plan combined living area.

We are very excited about our new Shepherd’s Hut.  We know that it will not suit everyone, but for those who enjoy experiencing something ‘a little different’, be it a romantic break or just getting back to nature, we believe that this really is an opportunity not to be missed!

The Shepherd’s Hut stands alone in the corner of a field with panoramic views over the countryside and has outside seating and a BBQ area.

The internal dimensions of the hut are 11’ x 6’4”, so not the largest of areas, but we believe that we have made the best use of the space, creating a cosy and relaxed atmosphere.  There is a double bed that folds out at night and acts as a seating area at other times, a foldaway table and two chairs.  Hooks on the wall are provided for hanging garments.

A log burning stove in the corner of the hut can provide heat, if required.

We must insist on absolutely no smoking and no naked flames in the hut, due to the nature of its construction.

A standpipe is provided outside, for fresh, cold water.  There are no services inside; but a shower and toilet being available close by. Internal lighting is provided by battery.

Bed linen is, of course, provided. Cereal and a thermos of tea or coffee is brought to the hut to start your day.

The Shepherd’s Hut has its own fire pit nearby, with a tripod which you can use to boil your kettle or cook over the wood fire. On a clear night, you can snuggle up to the warmth of a fire and stare up at the stars. Logs can be bought from Martin.

The Bolt Hole

Welcome to our new hut!

Unlike our other hut, 'The Bolt Hole' is designed for people on a budget - at only £40 per night.

'The Bolt Hole' still boasts all the traditional features of 'Y Cwtch' but you provide your own breakfast and bedding. 

The Bolt Hole

We do provide you with pillows and logs to keep you cosy and warm. Unlike our other hut, there is an electric kettle, since this hut also has an electrical hook up... but of course, it still retains that wonderful traditional experience of staying in a hut!

There is seating outside along with a BBQ and there is use of bathroom facilities on our friendly farmyard.

Inside The Bolt Hole

Because we have cut back on provisions, this means we have reduced the price, that means your hutting experience is reduced to £40 a night!

To book The Bolt Hole, please phone 01792 390554, (mob 07813 446317) or email
