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