A Shepherd’s Hut
On A Sheep Farm
also available on the Broomhead Estate
For a really special break for two why not come to our shepherd’s hut? Not only is it a shepherd’s hut on a real sheep farm, but it also has what must be one of the finest views in the Peak District. On opening your curtains in the morning, you will look down over the wooded Ewden valley across to the expanse of blue of two reservoirs. It is a wonderful retreat from urban life and the area abounds with wildlife such as hares, curlews, barn owls, nightjars and lapwings.
The hut is located on the edge of the lawn. The grass grows long below the hut and we have mowed a selection of meandering paths through the grass and wildflowers. Behind the hut is a backdrop of rhododendrons and azaleas which look amazing in May and June.
Our Plankbridge shepherd’s hut has been beautifully made with double bed, sitting area, log burner, small kitchen area with toaster and kettle and also shower, sink and toilet.
The hut has been decorated with the theme of sheep and all items have been carefully sourced, from the sheepskin rug from a local shepherdess to the wrought iron curtain rails in the shape of shepherd’s crooks. Linen is 100% cotton with a thick Welsh plaid rug on top.
With the fire lit, the hut is super cosy in no time, and if you want, you can curl up in bed and read a book or watch Netflix on the TV.
We supply a BBQ and firepit and also sun loungers and other garden furniture. You’ll have the extensive garden, walled garden and grounds all to yourselves as there are no other huts on the site. There’s also a tennis court for guests’ use as well as miles of walking, either on the moors or down in the valley by the reservoirs.
We supply food for a simple breakfast and a bottle of wine. Food can either be cooked on the BBQ or we can provide or heat up if necessary. There are also plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants in the vicinity.
so much to do in the national park
Other attractions such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall in the more touristy corners of the Peak District are generally about 45 minutes away in the car.
Local towns such as Holmfirth are full of interest and there are plenty of good places to eat out.
We woke up to a heron having his morning stroll a few yards away.
Beautiful hut in idyllic and private location.
