  • "Utopia provides a very well appointed private space where you can relax in pretty much total privacy."

    Andrew and Diana have thought of near enough everything you will need. The garden is an additional great space to unwind. We hope to visit again when we can. Alan and Christine, Cornwall.

  • "We had a magical few days' escape in blissful peace in this luxurious, self-contained Shepherd's Hut."

    Everything had been thought of for our comfort and ease and we were made very welcome, with treats on our arrival and a gentle but unobtrusive offer of further help if we needed any - which we didn't! The hut is beautifully designed right down to tiny artistic details, and with privacy and relaxation in mind. There are lovely walks right out from the door, and the coast is not far. We hope to come back soon!

The property

This beautifully crafted luxurious Shepherds Hut is positioned in complete privacy within a secluded setting, with the birds singing around you.

You'll be sure to be amazed as you walk into the grounds with a large grassed area with topiary balls, water feature and areas to sit and enjoy the Suffolk sunshine.

The location is ideal for walkers or cyclists looking to enjoy the Suffolk Countryside and coastal positions.

There is a footpath located directly from the property.

Wooden steps lead up into the spacious shepherds hut accommodating two guests, with living/dining/bedroom area, and a separate shower room.

No expense has been spared with this luxurious holiday home, with beautiful oak flooring throughout, Quartz kitchen worktops, antique furnishings and Emma Bridgewater tablewear.

The landscape surrounding the hut is delightful, and you can enjoy this by dining alfresco and making use of the BBQ.

Metfield is a small village within Suffolk, located just a few miles from the Norfolk border.

It is a perfect location that visitors get the best of both worlds: rolling countryside ready to be explored with hikes, walks and cycle rides aplenty and within a few miles, the breath-takingly beautiful coastline of the East Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Towns on the coast worth visiting include Southwold and Aldeburgh.

Check out market towns such as Diss, Halesworth and Woodbridge with attractions worth visiting including Framlingham Castle, Yoxford Antiques Centre and Gardens, Sutton Hoo, Somerleyton Hall and RSPB Minsmere.
