Recommended Stylish Glamping Breaks

Shepherd's View is a beautiful, cosy and incredibly comfortable shepherd's hut located on Copper Beech Glamping site just outside the pretty village of Woodseaves.

Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy this countryside haven picking your own fruit, vegetables and herbs from your own allotment and orchard, explore the local area with the onsite bikes and all only a short drive to market towns, quaint villages and stunning countryside. There is even a quirky wood-fired hot tub outside the shepherd's hut which will make your stay a truly unique experience.

Located on Knightley House Farm, a working beef and sheep farm that has been in the owner's family for over 50 years. Shepherd's View is sited in the farm's former kitchen garden and orchard, with a stunning neighbouring Copper Beech tree, it enjoys enviable views out over grassland and grazing sheep and cattle.

The wriggly tin hut is beautifully appointed with a newly extended sleeping area with a traditional metal frame bed, handcrafted kitchen with double hob, mini Belfast sink and fridge, dining area and ensuite shower room. The ‘Hobbit’ log burner will keep you cosy on chilly evenings. The hut has beautiful views directly across the pastureland and outside there is a private seating area with table and chairs and original Kadai pot for BBQ cooking and keeping warm into the evening.

Celebrating the site's ruralness the shepherding life is picked up in the decor and furnishings. The owners have also focussed on sustainability and being ecologically friendly from 'pick your own' to using renewable energy resources and encouraging biodiversity throughout the site.
