Space & setting.

If the thought of not having WiFi or phone reception has you running for the hills, this may not be the place for you. But if you’ll feel your shoulders drop not to hear a ping, ring or buzz for a couple of days, you’ll love the liberation of this back-to-nature experience. Cows graze in the pastures, butterflies and bees busy themselves in the meadow and the low hoot of an owl heralds the dusk. You’ll be led by the peaceful rhythms of nature rather than your usual routine.

Wake when you’re ready to, and mosey down to the village to pick up fresh eggs to scramble for an alfresco brunch. There are plenty of places to sit and simply be for the rest of the morning – curled up with a book in the outdoor snug, by the wood-burner with a cup of tea or reclined in a deckchair when the sun’s out. In the afternoon, perhaps a ramble across the 860 acres of private farmland, or hop in the car to explore pretty Cotwsolds villages. Then it’s back to your beautiful hut for dinner; we’d recommend one of the owner’s legendary asado packs, to sizzle over your firepit. Finally, sink into the wood-fired hot tub for some stellar stargazing, then go to bed when the mood takes you rather than when you should.

Getting here: drive, or train to Kemble or Swindon, then taxi (15/30 mins)

“When we first moved to the farm, I spent a few years juggling my old job (cooking for foodie events in London) with milking the cows and raising my sons. Eventually I started to look for opportunities to put my own stamp on our farm. The evolution of farm diversification began with the shepherd huts, and I’ve since started doing farm suppers, weddings and parties, floristry workshops and selling Christmas trees. It’s a beautiful spot that we are committed to sharing with others.” Owner, Eloise

My Kip favourites

She loves
“Sitting in the deckchairs at sunset, listening to the birds. There’s something about being off-grid that makes me feel so good. It’s low impact, I’m not consuming but instead reconnecting with nature and whoever I am there with, be they friends, partner or just myself. Peace.”

We love
The timeless Ercol chairs, and beautiful wall hangings handwoven by Pidgepidge.

There are 3 huts in the 9-acre field, approx 60m apart from one another but screened for privacy. Solar power means no hairdryers, please. Adults only.

  • "These huts are a must visit for those looking for the ultimate relaxing off grid experience. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anybody who lives a busy life and is seeking a peaceful and (luxurious) back-to-basics break. The hut is spacious, spotlessly clean, has all the small kitchen facilities required and a very comfortable bed. The hut features an incredibly relaxing wood fired hot tub, set within an extremely quiet field, under dark star lit skies, the hot tub looks out over vast unspoilt landscape toward the sunset on the horizon. We are already planning our next visit!"

  • "If you are looking to get back in contact with nature this is the place to stay. Luxury shepherds huts with all you’ll really need to get by. Log burner to keep the inside warm, fire pit to cook your breakfast lunch and dinner, oh and not forgetting a log fired hot tub! A great retreat to recharge and enjoy nature. Star gazing is the added extra!!"

The huts are off grid, with solar-powered electricity and composting loos. The grass is only cut once per year and the woodlands are carefully managed to create biodiversity for wildlife, including some rare species found here.
