The Accommodation The Shepherd's hut, settled on top of the slope, gives you far-reaching views across the valley.
Inside, the hut has electricity (supplied by photovoltaic panels) & lights - along with a double deluxe mattress for a perfect night's sleep. It is well insulated & has a wood-burning stove for all year round toastiness. Self-inflating mattress can be supplied for one child.
Tents Tents can be pitched only by those guests staying in the Shepherd's Hut. If there are more than 3 of you wanting to stay feel free to bring yours.
Kitchen Fully equipped kitchen (incl. gas hob & fridge) with crockery and cutlery for 6. Or cast yourself back into a simpler age & cook around the kotlich and fire.
Things to do Children can explore the 3.5-acre site with rucksacks that we provide packed with ideas and equipment. They can also go pond dipping, play on swings, hide in willow dens or build their own (plenty of materials cunningly placed for discovery!). There are maps and games in the hut.
Please note, as the Shepherd's Hut is at the top of the slope (only 2 mins but steep) it would be difficult to get a pushchair up...
Lots in the area for families to do - paintballing and high ropes at Oaker Wood Leisure, furry creatures at Small Breeds Animal Park and indoor fun at Quackers to name a few...
Adult bikes are available for hire.
Large Pitch RestrictionsThere are no restrictions on large family tents.
