FAT PHEASANT SHEPHERD HUTS

OPENING 1st MAY 2021

The perfect escape from your busy life.

 

Come and get away from it all on our idyllic farm in Oxfordshire. Stay in a luxurious and isolated shepherds hut with views of the beautiful English countryside. Bask in a private wood-fired hot tub just outside your hut and then cook your locally-sourced hamper of ingredients on your fire pit before retreating to your king size bed with wood burning stove and en suite shower room. Heaven!

 

We know that life can be stressful and that it's so important to find some time to yourselves and to reset. We think we've created the perfect hideaway in the secluded Oxfordshire countryside. You can explore the local pubs or have a hamper of locally sourced ingredients delivered to your hut to cook on your fire pit. 

 

The huts are located on Bury Court Farm in Shotteswell, Oxfordshire. Bury Court Farm is a working farm, focusing on arable crops and renewable energy.We wanted to provide an eco friendly place to escape it all - all our huts are off grid - but without sacrificing comfort. We have a wide selection of farm animals, from emus to Highland Cattle and you're welcome to meet them all!

Dogs are very welcome and we can even arrange for a bell tent to be put up outside your tent for children or friends.

We know this is a tricky time to book a holiday but we also feel that now, more than ever, we all need something to look forward to, so we want you to be able to book your break with confidence. We're currently offering full refunds for all cancellations with more than five days notice.

Kitchen in Dolly

Locally-sourced food hampers

We can deliver a hamper of raw breakfast or dinner ingredients for you to cook on the fire pit outside your hut. There's a small menu to choose from. We've aimed to keep food, as much as possible, from either the farm itself or from the local area.

 

The Farm

The huts are based on Bury Court Farm in Shotteswell on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border. Our family have farmed these 500 acres for over forty years. 

The farm is currently mainly arable crops, with some renewable energy as well - there's solar panels, a biomass boiler and a Combined Heat and Power boiler on site.

There are also some lovely animals to meet - Highland Cattle, sheep, Kunukune pigs, chickens, ducks, donkeys, emus, bees, cats and dogs, to name a few.
