In a nutshell…
We want staying in the hut to feel like a luxury hotel, so we’ve tried to go the extra mile to make it really comfortable for you, ensuring that all the styling is from British designers and adding in extra little treats to delight you.
The hut is 18 feet long and contains a double bed, seating, kitchen area and a bathroom with shower and flushing toilet.
Dimpsey Slumber Space
In our opinion, there’s nothing worse than having to make a bed every day, so our double bed pulls down out of the wall fully made with luxury British bed linen and cosy blankets. You can either leave it down and use the sofa bench seat to lounge on during the day…or tuck it away again when you’re ready.
The hut has a hand-built oak table and sheepskin-covered bench seats to seat up to 4 people. We also have a lovely long day bed which makes for comfy magazine reading, or just gazing out at the view across the hills. Our fairy lights and board games, make for cosy evenings – with a log burner for you to light on a really cold day.
We have a gas hob, fridge and small belfast sink within the hut – and we supply a starter pack of oils, vinegars, sauces and basic spices, tea and coffee. Outside the shepherd’s hut we have an oak covered outdoor kitchen area, complete with a wood-fired garden oven, plus outdoor washing-up area with Belfast sink with hot & cold taps.
All essential utensils and crockery are provided – there’s a list in the Welcome Pack.
We can also provide meals upon request and have also provided Places to Eat recommendations on the site.

Dimpsey Shepherd Huts are perfect summer and winter alike – for the chillier days you can light the logburner and hunker down with a good book – and the sunny days make it a great place to enjoy the sunshine and the fantastic views. The top step is a perfect place to sit with a cup of tea and drink in the scenery.
