Shepherds hut -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Brandeston, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
Tucked away in it's own secluded orchard sits The Scrumpy Shepherd. This handcrafted, hideaway for two, is full of delightful details from the copper fittings in the ensuite to the flower filled milk churns in the meadow.

Combining the charm of heritage fittings with modern facilities, The Scrumpy Shepherd offers pure luxury on a compact scale. The handcrafted kitchenette is beautifully equipped and a wood burning stove creates a cosy cabin. At the end of the day you will climb up into the full size double bed and wake up to beautiful views across the fields from the luxury of your bed. The attention to detail is continued outside too, with lanterns in the trees, a fire pit, barbecue and bespoke furniture, all crafted on the family farm - relax and reflect in the most restful setting.
