  • 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 sited in a tranquil setting on the fringe 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 along your furry companion in our pet friendly shepherd hut Lily, as they are also welcome at 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.

    Each hut full of rustic charm contain wood burning stoves to keep you warm & cosy, perfect for those chilly Winter evenings and cooler days. They each contain a built- in double bed with sumptous matresses & fresh pretty linens and throws ensuring a good nights sleep. 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 to set you up for the day. see website for menu & prices
