  • "I really enjoyed my stay at the shepherds hut; the peace and being able to just be and watch the sheep was a real blessing."

    Lots of places to walk to close by and Stroud for evening meals made the mini break lovely. Will be going back

    Mr Noel-smithDec 2019

  • "This Shepherds Hut is in an idyllic spot, very secluded (apart from the sheep) and well equipped for such a small space."

    Lovely views and a pub nearby. If going in summer take a fan as it does get hot!

The property

Possibly the ultimate in terms of romantic, 'get away from it all' locations and we love it! Situated in the utterly gorgeous Slad Valley (famously known as Laurie Lee country) the owners have created a perfect hideaway on the edge of this quaint village.

Small, but perfectly formed, the accommodation contains a standard double bed, shower room and all the mod cons needed for a break.

They have even managed to incorporate a log-burner for those long, winter evenings. The kitchen area has your essential amenities, and the fold away table allows you the chance to make the most of the amazing views. Every effort has been made to combine creature comforts with this idyllic, rural setting. If you can drag yourself away from this incredible location - you have the quintessential Cotswold town of Painswick a few miles away, truly beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

Popular spots such as Burford, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water are all nearby.

If you are looking to explore some of the larger Cotswold towns, then Stroud is just down the road.

A little further afield is the gorgeous town of Cheltenham, famous for its Regency buildings, and for its internationally renowned horse racing meetings - most notably the Gold Cup meeting every March, something that the owners take a particular interest in.
