Charming shepherds hut with hut with breath-taking views across Shropshire and short distance to Ludlow

Single travellers or couples in search of a quirky, romantic hideaway to escape to with their four-legged friend will simply adore this fully-contained shepherd’s hut in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. Located just 3 miles northeast of Ludlow, this compact and quaint property has a sleeping area for two people. Oozing charm and character, it boasts some gorgeous country views and has plenty of waymarked paths right on its doorstep - so it really is a paradise for pups and people alike.

Set on the grounds of the owners’ working farm, this compact but perfectly-formed property features an open-plan layout that includes lounge, kitchen, diner and sleeping areas. There is also a contemporary shower room with WC. After a day bounding around the Shropshire countryside with your pooch, you can soak up the views and enjoy a BBQ in the enclosed garden/patio while Fido runs free. Alternatively, head indoors for a glass of wine and a cosy night by the property’s wood burner, or take a leisurely stroll down to the local pub.

If you wish to explore a little further afield, take your pup for a walk at the romantic ruin of Ludlow Castle (4 miles), where they’ll be welcome in the castle, as well as in the Castle Kitchen Courtyard & Terrace. Or go for a lovely riverside walk at Whitcliffe Common (5 miles). Dogs are welcome and you’ll be rewarded with some wonderful views over Ludlow to the Clee Hills.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This was an incredible experience. A rural shepherds hut looking over rolling countryside. Watch the sun set and then light the log burner for a cosy night. Great that there is a shower too. Loved every second. Venessa and Robert were very welcoming.

Brilliant location combined with a lovely Shepherd's Hut on the edge of a rural farm. Surprisingly spacious and warm, even on the coldest night and a perfect alternative to a caravan etc

The Shepherds hut was fabulous looked exactly like the pictures and had been decorated up all Christmassy. Sitting outside all wrapped up and watching the sun going down over the hills then going into the hut with the fire going and curling up with a book listening to the radio was so warm and cosy. Waking up in the mornings with the sheep looking Read morethough the fence whilst I drank my coffee. I am feeling very calm and relaxed and ready for the coming December madness. I will definitely go back Hide

A very welcoming couple that made the stay pleasant from the very beginning. Home made bread and cake prepared on arrival and everything clean and ready for us. No issues arose and would be inclined to staying here again.

Well fitted. Neat and tidy with everything in its place. Partially sheltered setting to rear and panoramic views to front. Car parking just a few yards away. Steps up to split entrance door. This was useful for ventilation in the warm temperatures experienced. Proved to be more than adequate for interior space with some good design features.

Beautifully appointed and superbly equipped shepherd's hut with amazing views in an idyllic location. Friendly owners, delicious Shrewsbury biscuits and croissants were much appreciated. Small (obviously!) but cosy and cleverly laid out to make the most of the space. Log burner was great on some rather chilly days in May!
