Shepherd's hut with a Scandinavian wood-fired hot tub in Staffordshire: Nestled within rambling rural landscape, is where this dreamy little hut awaits. Light the tub or unwind with a good book in the comfort of your humble abode. This little haven promises a luxurious retreat to nature.
From the picturesque view to the spacious interior, Shepherd's View is just the tonic for a romantic getaway. The perfect hideaway to escape to at any time of the year. The pretty patio is just the spot for a sunset tipple on a warm summer's eve and the cosy wood-burner is idyllic for snuggling up by after a winter's walk and leisurely pub lunch. And, for a truly unique experience, embrace a star lit dip in your very own wood-fired hot tub. If you are looking for a peaceful, restorative retreat, then this heavenly hut is the hideaway for you.
As you enter the hideaway you'll instantly feel at home. Shepherd's View is larger than your average hut, with a free-standing double bed at one end and a cosy sitting area with a warming wood-burner and handy fold down table in the middle. There's also the ensuite shower room and well-equipped kitchen with a double ring electric hob, kettle and toaster. The lovely owners provide fresh eggs from their cute chickens, a wonderful personal touch to your wholesome getaway. If you fancy cooking in nature, light the rustic fire pit and enjoy a wood-fired feast alfresco style! Why not stop by a farm shop and pick up local produce to cook over the flickering flames? Serve with a side of seasonal veg from the owner's gorgeous vegetable, fruit and herb patch which you are welcome to help yourself too.
The secluded patio area is perfect for soaking up the sunshine. Surrounded by raised beds full of beautiful blooms and overlooking rolling countryside, it really is a serene sanctuary. Enjoy golden mornings, coffee in hand as you take a seat on the step and sink into the earthy ambience that surrounds your simply stunning hideaway. As the sun begins to set, soak away your worries in the alfresco tub and unwind with a glass of your favourite. The surrounding farmland bursts into life from spring with an abundance of wildflowers for you to explore and the paddock to the right of the hut is home to some gorgeous sheep. Breakfast and barbecue hampers are also available to pre-order with the owners. Everything is produced on the farm where possible or from a local-award winning butcher.
If you are looking for an eco-friendly hideaway, Shepherd's View is the perfect 'Green' getaway. The surrounding wildflower meadow and native hedging plants have been chosen to attract pollinators and there's also a 'long grass' policy throughout the spring and summer months. For lovers of wildlife, there are bird feeding stations, an insect hotel, hedgehog house and bee feeding station.
Items have been supplied to guests in refillable bottles where possible. All cleaning products have low environmental impact and are supplied by a local plastic free shop, Roots Larder. Guests are encouraged to use pedal power to explore the local area as the owner's kindly offer bikes for you to use.
Where possible, solar panels are used to supply electricity to the hideaway and rainwater is harvested to water the plants on site. Shepherd's View really is the perfect sustainable retreat!
