If ever we saw blessing in the air, it's in this beautiful part of the Cotswolds, where handsome shepherds hut April Rise sits amidst the wildflowers in her own sepia meadow.  A romantic retreat for two, April Rise is named after the Cotswold's most famous son, Laurie Lee, and his famous poem of the same name.  We think that Lee would have enjoyed a stay in this cosy cabin, with its views of his beloved rolling fields, full of hares and butterflies, not far from his Gloucestershire home of Slad Valley.
April Rise may remind us of bucolic, hazy August days, but she's anything but traditional. 

April Rise is a little larger than your average hut, sitting in a peaceful location in which to enjoy your stay in this area.  She even has an en-suite bathroom fit for royalty, which is handy due to her proximity to the royal houses of Gatcombe Park and Highgrove House.  April Rise offers an opportunity to experience Tetbury's traditional hotel room, with all the modern conveniences, and even a breakfast hamper to boot.  Why not bring your loved one on a romantic break to this famously idyllic county?

Guests will also be treated to a complimentary breakfast hamper, which includes delicious croissants and fresh fruit.    

***Very good 4G signal available in the hut***

April Rise is a spacious shepherd's hut containing a large pull out double bed, with coverings printed by talented textile designer and owner Liz.  All soft furnishings in the hut were designed by Liz, creating a cheerful, comfortable interior, perfect for snuggling up with our loved one. 

Unlike Laurie Lee's shepherd's huts of yore, April Rise has an electricity supply, water supply and gas boiler, meaning you can fill the electric kettle for your morning tea, and jump into a hot shower in the small en-suite bathroom, with corrugated shower cubicle and washbasin before you begin your day of adventures in the Cotswolds.  At the end of a busy day, enjoy a glass of something fizzy in front of the flames of the fire pit - fab!

April Rise sits in her own flowery field, some 100 metres from her sister, Rosie Hut, who sits in a meadow beyond a large conifer hedge, meaning that both huts enjoy privacy and peace.  These beautiful huts are just over a mile away from Cherington, winner of several Best Kept Village awards, and 3 miles from Tetbury, with its lovely shops, tea rooms, and the fantastic Trouble House, a sixteenth century pub turned gastro haven.  And you can't miss the iconic 17th-century Market House, which sits majestically in the town centre square, as if it's on stilts.
