Monkwood Shepherds Hut - A couple’s paradise

Clad with Douglas fir and oak, while being insulated with all-natural lamb’s wool, Monkwood is a more eco-conscious choice of accommodation for your romantic getaway from reality. Free Wifi

A fresh contemporary space awaits you in Monkwood. Neutral wood panelling, exposed oak beams and a clever layout make this hut feel much larger than it is.

Take the steps up through the stable door into the open plan living and dining space. Here you’ll find a well-equipped and extremely stylish kitchenette. Dusky grey cabinets are topped with a quartz worktop creating a timelessly classic look.

Next to the kitchen you’ll find a seating area, opposite the toasty wood burning stove. Just imagine the smell of woodsmoke and the warmth of the flames after a day out in the elements…. bliss.

To the far left, you’ll find a cosy cubby area which houses the super comfortable king size bed. And on the wall, you’ll find the flatscreen smart tv ideally sited for watching television in extreme comfort.

As you head towards the sliding doors at the opposite end of your hut, you’ll come across the cute dining table and benches, built for two.

And as you pull open those sliding doors, you’ll unveil the most incredible William Holland double ended freestanding copper bath in your ensuite bathroom. Located in pride of place, it’s an impressive feature and one you’ll be keen to dive into as soon as you can!

And outside, you’ll find a patio space at the head of your hut, with outdoor furniture perfectly located to take in the very best of the rolling hills and open countryside views by daylight. Not forgetting to head out to lose yourselves in the stars come nightfall.

Please note that your hut has a designated spot for barbecues, and single use BBQ kits are available to purchase.
