The owners wanted the Scrumpy Shepherd to feel “like a luxury private hotel”, and they have certainly achieved it! The hand-crafted shepherd’s hut was built especially for them with huge attention to detail, high quality fixtures, furnishings and exquisite decorations… if you’re looking for a romantic escape for two, surrounded by countryside but with all the modern comforts of a luxury break, then the Scrumpy Shepherd is for you.
The hut contains a small bespoke oak kitchen, fully equipped with Emma Bridgewater crockery, combination microwave oven and fridge. You can enjoy your meal at the cosy seating area, or head outside and sit in the fresh air. There’s also a wood burning stove, luxury double bed and a beautiful en-suite bathroom with copper showerhead, WC, hairdryer and complimentary luxury toiletries.
Step outside the hut and you’ll find yourself in a private orchard, accessible through a meadow of fruit trees. You’ll have use of the fire pit, barbeque and oak furniture. The views from the orchard, over the surrounding fields and meadows banking the Deben Valley, are outstanding – perfect for admiring the sunset as you enjoy a glass of wine beside the flickering flames.
