Rookery Retreat Shepherds Hut
Immerse yourself in this tranquil woodland location. Surround yourself with soothing sounds of water, hooting owls, and the gentle rustle of leaves. Re-engage with nature and leave everyday stresses well and truly behind.
Set within an acre of historic woodland on a traditional, working family farm dating back to the Doomsday Book. Today, the land has been lovingly farmed by the same family since the 1800s. Idyllically situated to take advantage of the most beautiful scenery; facing out over 200 acres of forestry featuring views of the stunning valley.
Rookery Retreat Shepherds Hut perfectly blends indulgent luxury with a true escape into nature. Tune out modernity and instead witness the whispering woodland and gently babbling brook. Enjoy the seclusion of the remote location. Dine al fresco on the patio, or take a picnic down by the water. Later, settle in for the night with a good book to the backdrop of the crackling wood burning stove.
Rookery Retreat Shepherds Hut oozes bespoke luxury. The welcoming interior has been inspired by the outside, with natural tones and materials lending a warm, homely feel. Luxury touches include an induction hob, a wood burning stove and a Roberts Radio sound system. And don’t miss out on the most incredible walk-in rainfall shower. Every element has been thoughtfully designed to reflect the tranquil surroundings offering a unique, yet homely experience. Essential toiletries, towels, cooking pots, pans and utensils. Crockery and glasses, along with tea and coffee making facilities. Meanwhile, the double bed boasts a memory foam mattress; perfect for sweet, carefree dreams. Simply pack your clothes and some food – everything else is taken care of.
Breathe in the fresh air of your very own woodland at Rookery Retreat Shepherds Hut. The secluded setting makes for a relaxing break – your only neighbours being farm animals and nesting birds. Enjoy the unparalleled views of the adjacent valley and 200 acres of forest land. Recline into a restful doze as you swing gently between the trees on the hammock. Later, grill on the barbecue as you dine al fresco on the private patio area. And as night falls, cuddle in front of the glowing fire pit beneath an unspoilt, twinkling sky.
