Set in the meadow

General

  • Eco-friendly and relaxed Norfolk farm near Aylsham
  • Handmade shepherd's hut with spectacular views
  • Double bed with linen, woodburning stove and outside barbecue

If it’s high time for a digital detox, retreat to the secluded setting of Shepherd's Hut at North Farm Cottages, surrounded by rural fields 10 minutes’ drive from Aylsham.

The handmade electricity-free wooden hut is insulated with lambs’ wool to keep it cosy, and mounted on sturdy cast iron wheels from the local foundry. It’s flits between a couple of homes on site – in the summer months it’s housed on a secluded water meadow overlooking a stream, and between October and Easter it retreats nearer the farmhouse to keep tootsies dry, but still with pretty countryside views.

Inside, there’s a double bed with linen provided, chairs, table, woodburning stove and stove-top kettle. You’re in for a warm welcome – the owners provide an essentials box of tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper and cooking oil to get you started, as well as the first basket of wood for the stove (additional baskets are available for a small charge).

Head outside for a lungful of fresh air and pull up a chair by the firepit to keep things toasty – it doubles up as a barbecue, so that’s alfresco eats covered too (barbecue tools are provided). A washroom with shower, toilet and sink is a couple of minutes’ walk away; in this annexe, guests also have access to an electric kettle, crockery and cutlery box, washing-up facilities and fridge.

When it’s time to stretch your legs, join the Bure Valley Path by walking across the fields to Oxnead (keep your eyes peeled for wildlife while you wander). Anglers can also stay put and try their luck in the small tributary of the River Bure, which runs through the property.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    This Shepherd's hut is so cozy! The log burner kept us very warm and the bed was comfy. The fire pit meant we could comfortably sit outside under the stars even in a chilly October. Gill was very welcoming and happy to help. The shower was nice and hot.

    Cosy Shepherds hut with lovely views in a peaceful setting. The stove kept us nice and toasty and we enjoyed sitting out using the bbq on the warmer evening. The facilities were clean and had everything we needed.

    Lovely cosy clean comfortable shepherd's hut, in a quiet countryside location. Own use of a bathroom and washing up area, plus a fridge and a kettle. Firepit/bbq provided. Within easy reach of Norfolk beaches, we went to Caister-On-Sea, Cromer and Winterton-on-Sea. The owners were friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

    Shepard’s Hut was wonderful and cosy! The surrounding area is just beautiful and so so peaceful. Hosts were lovely - greeted me when I arrived and supplied anything I could have needed 😊 I went alone as a relaxing retreat but would be fantastic for couples or families who want to enjoy the Norfolk countryside! Facilities were clean and very close to the hut. I loved watching the dragonflies & butterflies buzzing around the beck. Lots of wildlife and gorgeous views!! I really could go on and on about how lovely my stay was!!

    Very cosy hut surrounded by a peaceful, green meadow in a farm setting. All we could hear were birds and cows. Hut, toilet, shower and kitchen area literally one minute away and very well equipped.

Directions

Local attractions

Take in a couple of impressive buildings with visits to Blickling Estate (10-minute drive) and Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate (20 minutes), then continue with pretty garden explores at East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden (20 minutes) and Plantation Garden (half an hour).

For history with a bit more engine power, take trips to the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum (20 minutes) and the City of Norwich Aviation Museum (20 minutes).

A day at Wroxham Barns (15 minutes) should come with something for everyone – the leisure and shopping complex has boutiques, craft studios, a kids' farm, funfair and restaurant.

What’s a Norfolk hol without exploring the Broads? Opt for land or water adventures at Salhouse Broad (25 minutes), where there are woodland walks to cover, canoes and kayaks to hire, and play areas to blow off steam.

Then, of course, there’s Norfolk’s county town, Norwich (half an hour), for a bit of city life – think shops, eateries, a market, cathedral, museums and art galleries.
