A holiday with a difference! These Shepherd Huts are set in the rolling Oxfordshire countryside - perfect for the independent traveller who wants to get away from it all. Superb walking, birdwatching horseriding (stables available), swimming in the river, cycling or just star watching and sitting by the camp fire.
Lots of local attractions including National Trust properties Canons Ashby and Upton House. Well behaved dogs welcome.
These shepherd huts HAVEN'T got a colour TV, hairdryer, telephone or DVD player, but what they HAVE got is something that cannot be quantified.
When you wake up in the morning, having had the most beautiful sleep on the ultra comfortable bed, all you can see is a rolling meadow running down to the River Cherwell. You can listen to the buzzards calling while they soar above, having heard nothing but owls hooting during the night. Just you and nature - nothing else.
Walk along the river to the local pub fo that glass of wine. Enjoy a nightcap by the camp fire before retiring to the divinely comfortable bed....
No neighbours, no noise, just complete peace and tranquility - a chance to recharge your batteries and have that little bit of adventure that the soul craves for.....
These shepherd huts are unique in that they are all completely private and you are the ONLY guests - no shared kitchens or bathrooms here - just complete privacy.
FABULOUS walks include the Millenium Way, The Jurassic Way, the Battlefields walk and The Macmillan Way.
Really cosy in the winter with fire pit, log burner or electric heaters and VERY warm duvets.
There is an 'African hut' style bathroom with a high powered gas fired shower and an eco loo, with full running hot and cold water. Camp fire and plenty of wood is available.
There is a barbeque or a George Foreman grill in the hut, or order a Chinese take away which can be delivered to the yard. A mobile shop comes into the yard on Saturday mornings which sells delicious fresh meat and vegetables
27/02/19 - A new family of otters have moved in to our stretch of the river! Between 9-10 otters were spotted tumbling around in the water near River Hut
Whilst we do not allow tents on the site couples can request a cosy cocoon (small double bed) or two for extra children/friends @£25 per person which will be placed by the hut. This doesn't apply to the stable shepherd hut.

"Just wanted to write and say thank you for the weekend. Your Shepherds Hut was the best place we have ever stayed, absolutely amazing. We've never spent a weekend doing so little, but enjoying the place we are staying in so much.
Thank you". Scot & Kay (Herts)
