  • "Enjoyed my stay in this lovely little hideaway in a beautiful part of the world."

    .only suggestion would be an upgrade to the folding chairs to bring a bit more comfort while sitting having your morning coffee.. thanks..

  • "It’s a lovely, well designed but compact shepherd’s hut."

    It was warm while we were there but I imagine it would be cosy in colder weather. Beautiful location too, and handy for many of Suffolk’s sights, pubs, towns, beaches etc.

  • "Cosy hut in a gorgeous, secluded setting, perfect for exploring this part of Suffolk."

    Lots of lovely touches - the fire pit and BBQ were ready to go! - and it felt like everything was thought of. The dog loved having the big field on her doorstep. Just be sure to pack insect repellant, as the setting comes with the downsides of nature as well as the upsides!

The property

Settled into a picturesque meadow in Hollesley and with countryside walks and cycling, Shepherds Pightle is a blue shepherds hut which has been converted into a fantastic holiday home for a couple looking to explore the countryside of Suffolk.

Be delighted by this picturesque hut, painted blue and with a backdrop of countryside trees and meadows, parking off road and making yourself at home.

The interior of this hut is all open plan, with wooden walls and ceiling adding character and a woodburning stove warming your feet in the colder months, and there is also a small kitchen with contemporary cupboards in greys and browns, as well as storage, a table for two and a double bed.

This hut also has a fantastic little shower room where you can enjoy a relaxing soak at the end of the day.

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

Hollesley is a rural village which offers a pub and convenience store, where you can stock up on essentials before heading outside for a countryside walk at RSPB Hollesley, where you can make use of the local bird hides and see what wildlife is there.

If you fancy a glimpse into the past, then a visit to the nearby village of Orford is a must, where the excellent Orford Castle and grounds can be enjoyed by guests.

Travel further to Aldeburgh and you will be able to enjoy the selection of eateries, as well as the wonderful pebble beach where you and your significant other can take a stroll in the salty air.

Create a special couple’s retreat with a stay at Shepherds Pightle.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
