Shepherd’s hut in Staffordshire with a hot tub: Perched within an impressive garden and cocooned by enchanting woodland, this wholesome hut is just a stone's throw from the dramatic landscape of the Peak District.
Embrace a slice of rural life at Flora, where peace and serenity are promised. Retreat with the one you love for a wholesome staycation in nature’s paradise - spend quality time together, away from the bustling outside world. The hut is perched within an impressive one acre garden, which you’ll have all to yourself (besides a silkie hen or two). Enjoy your morning cuppa on the lovely swing seat, embrace an alfresco brunch or rustle up some Italian delights in the pizza oven. After a day exploring the Peak District, treat yourself to a sunset tipple in the heavenly wood-fired hot tub or beside the flickering flames of the firepit. When you’re feeling snoozy, head inside, get snug in the cabin style bed and drift off into a sweet slumber.
This joyful little hut is sunshine for the soul. Enter to be greeted with wholesome countryside charm, a beautiful design and soft soothing tones. The cabin style bed is snuggled to the left of the hideaway - a lovely little den where dreamy nights’ sleep await. Embrace slow mornings with breakfast in bed and open up the sweet stable door to let fresh countryside air fill the hideaway with ease. There’s a small table, perfect for intimate dining and a characterful Everhot mini electric range, adding a pop of colour to the space. The kitchen area is simple but well equipped with everything you’ll need during your stay. Including a 2 ring electric hob, fridge with ice-box, toaster and kettle. Not to mention, it’s decorated in a calming sage green creating the most welcoming atmosphere. The shower-room is located to the right of the hideaway and is just the spot to freshen up before the day ahead. There’s also lovely fluffy robes for when you’re hopping out of the shower or heading to the steamy hot tub…
Flora is settled within a stunning one acre walled garden, encompassed by verdant green trees. Wander through the wooden gate and along the path to reach this rural paradise. You will be in awe from the moment you arrive, with an abundance of outside space and plenty of peaceful spots to sit back, relax and soak in the tranquillity. This hidden gem is situated on a farm in the Peak District National Park, so gorgeous scenery is promised. Say hello to your friendly neighbours; sheep, ponies and hens! Get lost in a good read on the lovely swing seat nestled at the end of the garden or enjoy breakfast alfresco fuelling the day's adventures. Evenings at Flora are just magical. As golden hues fill the sky and dusk settles over the hills of the Peak District, sizzle dinner over the barbecue or light the pizza oven and enjoy a taste of Italy. Once the wood-fired hot tub is nice and steamy, pour a glass of fizz and soak your worries away. The firepit is sure to keep you toasty on a cool starry night and the lovely owners even supply a bag of marshmallows for making s’mores! Flora is the perfect getaway from it all - you’ll be wishing to return time and time again.
