Property code: 54698

Set within an established meadow enjoying stunning views across the Ridgeway, this original shepherd’s hut has been lovingly restored and is just perfect for couples looking to escape the real world.

Cosy up with a canine in this romantic converted shepherd’s hut, set in the rural tranquillity of the Cotswolds. This property is perfectly suited for couples or single holidaymakers to get away from daily stresses, even enjoy a digital detox, and explore its enviable location next to a National Trail - the Ridgeway. Holidaymakers will be charmed by the quirky layout of this peaceful retreat.

This original shepherd’s hut is accessed through a peaceful meadow with stunning views, where one lucky pup can laze on a sunny afternoon. Climb a few wooden steps to enter and inside is a homely painted wooden interior and bright furnishings, complementing the hut’s original features. Sit on cosy seating by the wood burning stove before retiring to the comfortable king-size bed. A separate well-equipped kitchen area is outside the hut. Here you can cook up a storm on a two-ring hob or the BBQ, dining alfresco on the hut’s decking over beautiful views of the countryside. Freshen up in a separate modern shower and WC, having all you need for a relaxing stay.

Canines will be delighted to join their two-legged walking companions on the 200m jaunt to the nearby Ridgeway trail, full of outstanding views long enjoyed by walkers and cyclists. For a dose of history, take your canine companion on an exciting day out full of more lovely walks to Liddington Castle, one of Britain’s earliest hill forts where historians speculate King Arthur’s Battle of Badon Hill took place. Explore some of the stunning nearby Cotswolds towns, including Cirencester, 21 miles away, with its range of boutiques, restaurants and dog-friendly pubs, as well as the Corinium Museum showcasing important locally-found Roman mosaics and sculptures.

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

We loved the Shepherd's Hut. It was beautifully set up and had everything you could of needed to make it a relaxing and cosy weekend. We loved the walks around the area and it was only a short drive away to the nearest pub. Becky did everything to make sure we felt welcome and comfortable.

We loved our stay in this old shepherds hut. The owners could not have been any more helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend a stay here for proper relaxation time. It was so lovely in the evening to light the log burner and switch off from everything. The thoughtful extras the owners provided on our arrival made us feel very welcome....thaRead morenk you Hide

Not enough words to say what a fantastic break in this Shepards hut. Stunning views and walks to be had. The owners were very friendly and assisted us if ever we needed anything ( more wood for the fire pit). We will 100% be going back.
