FAT PHEASANT SHEPHERD HUTS

 

Off-grid huts surrounded by nature

We know that life can get busy. Come and stay in our off-grid huts, in the middle of our 500 acre farm, with no people, roads or houses in sight. The perfect opportunity to switch off and reconnect. The huts are luxurious and the views are outstanding. Each hut has a king size bed, an en-suite shower room with flushing toilet and a wood burning stove. Cook your locally sourced food hamper on your fire-pit then while the evening away in your private wood-fired hot tub.

The interior is bright and airy with millennial pink tiles in the shower. There's a king size bed, en-suite showroom with flushing toilet, small kitchen and wood burning stove.

We're very excited to be adding a third hut over the winter. It will be open to guests from 1st April 2022. The current plan is to have a free standing bath in the hut, an outdoor shower and huge windows at each end to admire the view through. As with Maggie and Dolly, there'll be a king size bed, flushing toilet, wood-fired hot tub and outdoor eating area. The hut will be a 5 minute drive down a stone farm track and you can park right outside. Check our instagram for updates.

The shepherd's hut was amazing. We stayed in Maggie and would stay again in a heartbeat. The hut was lovely and the hamper we ordered extra was amazing. The location was perfect, sitting in the hot tub overlooking the fields was lovely. Our dog loved it too; the jar of dog biscuits was a lovely touch. Would thoroughly recommend

  

We had a wonderful time staying in Dolly at Fat Pheasant Shepherd Huts. It was perfect for two families - with four adults and three children. Having the whole meadow to ourselves was a real treat, really private and super safe for the kids. Jo is a great host with great attention to detail. We ordered a BBQ box and a few other bits which were wonderful in terms of quality and presentation, the whole set up is so nice- an instagrammers dream!

What a wonderful countryside retreat! We loved switching off and living the off-grid life with all the modern and luxe details of a boutique hotel. 

There is so much to explore and the farm is the perfect bolt hole to make the most of getting outside. Dolly is completely secluded and private which is rare these days! A must is the food hampers which give you a real taste of the area where you are staying.

About us

The shepherd huts are run by Jo, with the "help" of her one year old son, Raffi. Jo grew up on the farm and wanted to share this wonderful place. Her brother Tom built the huts himself, so they're both off-grid and luxurious. Her family have been farming this land for over forty years. The farm is mainly arable, with some renewable energy sources, but there's also lots of lovely animals to meet; Highland cows, Kunekune pigs, friendly rescue chickens, emus and donkeys, amongst others. We really hope you'll love the farm as much as we do.
