The “totally secluded” cabin overlooking the Thursden valley

Located on a working farm, you will be surrounded by wild animals as well as farm animals, the host even warns against mud all year round!

Take in spectacular moorland views and have a rustic experience of outdoor living in a very private shepherd’s hut.

The cabin can accommodate up to two people in a double bed but is very well insulated, so no chance of getting cold.

There is a potable water supply right outside the hut and an adjacent composting toilet so not quite luxury but definitely an adventure!

During the muddier months, an electric fence surrounds the shepherd’s hut to make sure the animals don’t cause any damage.
