  • Two beautiful traditional style shepherd’s huts on our hill sheep farm in the fabulous Peak District, situated above the River Dove near the picturesque Milldale.

    Our quaint shepherd’s huts are reminiscent of the original living accommodation for a shepherd, with its stable door, cast iron wheels and wood burning stove.

    Today it is a romantic all seasons retreat to relax, unwind, explore, walk and enjoy this countryside haven.

    The shepherd’s huts are nestled on the edge of a small woodland, with nature on the doorstep. Ideally suited to couples or the solo traveller to escape the bustle of everyday life.

    With circular walks from the doorstep, you can bring your trained dog, as they are also welcome in one of our shepherd huts with no extra fee.

    Our shepherd huts are ecologically friendly, with no electricity, television or internet, instead just relax, refresh and awaken your senses amongst nature in the delightful Derbyshire Dales.

    The huts are warm and cosy with their wood burning stoves, perfect for those chilly Winter evenings and cooler days. They each contain a built- in double bed with fresh pretty linens and throws, battery operated lanterns & fairy lights creating an ambient atmosphere, a camping gas stove for cooking simple meals, alternatively cook outside on the charcoal barbeque and enjoy alfresco dinning.

    If you don’t want to do all the cooking, an optional breakfast hamper can be delivered right to your door.

    Sit out on the shepherd hut balcony, sip your tea and see the wildlife and farm animals awaken. In the evening swap your tea for a glass of wine and watch the sunset disappear behind the trees or sit round the fire pit and star gaze under starry skies.



    Each shepherd hut sleeps 2 persons in a double bed. All linens are supplied for your stay including towels

    There is an initial supply of logs in each hut, you are more than welcome to bring or buy your own logs or we sell extra bags of logs when required.

    There is no electricty in our huts to keep them as traditional as possible, but there is a power point in the Old dairy for keeping you in the 21st century to charge phones, or to use a hair drier.
