Situated in Wincle in the South West Peak District ideally located for exploring the Peak District National Park, Leek, Buxton and Macclesfield. Set in 38 acres of the owners’ grounds, this retreat enjoys a peaceful location with an abundance of walks on its doorstep. The small hamlet of Wincle is home to a local pub serving locally sourced dishes. For those who are looking for a bit of excitement Alton Towers, arguably the best theme park in the country, is just 15 miles away. For relaxing fun from the doorstep explore the many public paths that meander around the stunning countryside and enjoy the peace and tranquillity that surrounds you here. You can also take a tour of a traditional brewery situated just a short walk down the road.

Pop your stuff in the handy wheel barrow, head through the gate and follow the lit concrete path and you will see your beautiful shepherds hut nestled on the top of the hill. Take off your boots and head up a few steps into the hut which welcomes you with open arms. The stable door lets the light and fresh air flood into the hut and helps you enjoy the surrounding views. There is a kitchen area with two ring induction hob, kettle, slow cooker, small portable grill, fridge and microwave everything you need to rustle up a hearty breakfast. The comfy double bed benefits from storage underneath to keep your bags out of the way. There is a drop leaf table and chairs to come together round and enjoy a meal. The hut is well heated at all times by an electric radiator, making the hut lovely and toasty, even on chillier days. The shower room, although snug presents everything you need from an enclosed shower, sink and WC. The little touches from the lights on a dimmer switch, to the beautiful fabrics that decorate the hut come together to provide a really special escape. This luxurious shepherd's hut offers full electricity and lighting, the ultimate glamping experience.

Outside there is a summer house with comfy seating, think of this as an additional room to your outdoor living, the perfect place to watch the sun set. There is a BBQ with fire pit to really enjoy those summer evenings in the country.

We really enjoyed our short stay in the Shepherds Hut. We have stayed in other similar properties and this one stands out. We really liked the shower room and toilet on the end and the garden room was perfect for a read with a cupppa. The views across the valley and the pub just down the road make it an ideal location.

We were blown away by the Shepherds Hut! It has everything you need for a short stay. The views from the hut are breathtaking and we enjoyed having early morning coffee taking in the scenery. The location is perfect for local hikes and is within 5-10 minutes walking distance from the local pub (Ships Inn) which does good food and the Wincle BreweryRead more. The hut is tucked away so you can have a peaceful and quiet stay. The hosts Angela and Ian were so friendly and helpful. Recommended! Hide

Lovely relaxing place to stay with plenty of walks right outside the door. Well equipped and it was lovely having the summer house to sit in during the evenings. A shame that the local pub was closed most of our stay so check times before you go! Brewery was open though! Would definitely recommend doing The Hanging Stone and Luds Church walk.
