Property code: 90021

Soak in the tranquil woodland surroundings of this charming shepherd’s hut, set in the Southern valleys of the Peak District. This romantic bolthole is perfect for a couple of walking enthusiasts seeking a restorative getaway in nature. Gear up for a scenic peddle through the Derbyshire Dales on the traffic-free Tissington Trail, then snuggle up in front of the crackling fire pit and toast with a glass of fizz as the sun dips below the horizon.

This elegant lodge is beautifully designed to fully utilise the compact space. Saunter along the patchwork stone path then slide off muddy boots before stepping through the stable door into the open-plan living space. After a day in the hills, refresh with a relaxing shower before settling in for the evening. Throw a log on the wood burner then prepare a simple supper for two in the crisp country kitchen with sleek wooden worktops. Select your favourite tipple and pour a couple of glasses then dine at the intimate table and bask in the warmth of the fire. Retire to the sleeping area with an inviting double bed and handy under-bed storage. There is also a Smart TV for leisurely morning viewing or evening movie marathons. On balmy mornings, throw open the door and drink in the blissful countryside seclusion as you sip a brew on the wooden deck.

Step out and explore the myriad of wonderful walking routes snaking from your front door. Amble through the lush Dovedale valley and leap across the iconic stepping stones set at the foot of Thorpe Cloud (8 miles). Settle in for a hearty lunch with the locals in the charming market town of Ashbourne (7 miles) before browsing the eclectic antique shops for a bargain. To stock up on unbeatably fresh farm produce for breakfast, don’t forget to swing by the rustic dairy barn (7 miles).

We loved staying in this beautiful hut in the Peaks. Cathy and Robert were so kind that made a protection so that our one year old child doesn't get close to the fire place. We had good fun with lots of snow, loved the area, and the hut was the cherry on top with great views to the countryside. Superb choice, hope to come back again!

Me and my partner came here for our anniversary and it was beautiful. It was clean, comfy, friendly and overall a lovely place to be. The shops, cafes etc were quite a drive away which didn't really bother us but it was very out of the way from where we were staying.

However, we know that flies are an uncontrollable thing and it wouldn't change our minds about coming again. We loved it! x Hide

This was our first time staying in a shepherds hut and we thoroughly enjoyed it. On arrival there was tea, coffee, milk, butter, a lovely loaf of bread with jam and marmalade and a beautiful cake. The owner was very friendly and told us about the local area. Its great for cycling and walking or if you enjoy peace and quiet.
