Borleymere Shepherds Hut
If you have ever dreamed of waking up in a Shepherds Hut in a wildflower meadow, tucked away beside a picturesque Mere with woodland around you and just birdsong and the rustling of leaves to listen to as your neighbours; then this lovely place is a real treat for you.
The wonderful fairy tale Shepherds Hut is just gorgeous and of course the hut is just the beginning of what is offered, because what is really important is the location and here you really have a dream location…
Borleymere Shepherds Hut is set in a large wildflower meadow with grassy walks surrounded by secluded and peaceful woodland. Just a few steps from the hut is the picturesque Mere itself which is a one acre lake surrounded by wildflowers, rushes, willows and reeds. With fish and duck for company you are welcome to go ‘Wild Swimming’.
There are pathways meandering around the Mere and through the woodland where you can marvel at the richness and variety of Flora and Fauna. Here you really are in the bosom of the English countryside and this little piece of paradise is what we call Borleymere. As you cross the tiny lane 200 yards away you see you are in the lovely rolling countryside of East Anglia along the Stour River Valley. There are pretty footpaths wandering in all directions and tiny lanes for you to cycle round until you come across one of our lovely pubs. The local Hamlet is steeped in history and like so many around, every house is hundreds of years old and often thatched.
Borleymere Shepherds Hut is traditionally built for and based upon Huts for shepherds tending their flocks centuries ago. It’s very cosy and has everything you need including a full sized double bed, a fold-away table and chairs, a unit with a small basin, a single gas ring and a cosy wood-burning stove.
Outside is a really well thought out covered cooking and preparing cabin which has a gas hob and oven, a big Belfast sink, a cool box and hurricane lamp. Whatever the weather this is a comfortable place to make your meals. There is also a barbeque and brazier so you can cook in the open and watch the fish rise and the duck flight onto the Mere.
The star of the show is the luxurious Shower Cabin and its Loo which is tucked into the edge of the woodland. It is really very well fitted out and is as Ecologically as can be with its fabulous compost loo and unashamedly indulgently hot shower with a big Rain Shower head; in this case not real rain but a luxury Rain style shower head which is really big and the water comes down like rain!
The Shepherd’s Hut and its facilities are for two people who want real peace and quiet and a simpler way of life. Where they can come into rhythm with the world, enjoy the stars and the night calls of wildlife rather than television. There are little candles but no telly, no wireless connection and no mains power… although with a short walk to ‘the pump house’ you can charge your phone and replenish the ice-packs.
Borleymere Shepherds Hut is just an amazing and wonderful place to stay, where you will find peace and time to enjoy nature and each other.Check Availability & Prices
