Glamping in Oxfordshire The Cotswolds
A glamping holiday with a difference! These Shepherd Huts are set in the rolling Oxfordshire countryside – perfect for the independent traveller who wants to get away from it all. Superb walking (on the battlefield trail) birdwatching, horse riding (stables available). Lots of local attractions including National Trust properties Canons Ashby and Upton House. Well behaved dogs welcome.
Our shepherd huts HAVEN’T got a colour TV, hairdryer, telephone or DVD player, but what they HAVE got is something that cannot be quantified. When you wake up in the morning, having had the most beautiful sleep on the ultra comfortable bed, all you can see is a rolling meadow running down to the River Cherwell. You can listen to the buzzards calling while they soar above, having heard nothing but owls hooting during the night. Just you and nature – nothing else. Walk along the river to the local pub for that glass of wine. Enjoy a nightcap by the camp fire before retiring to the divinely comfortable bed…. No neighbours, no noise, just complete peace and tranquility – a chance to recharge your batteries and have that little bit of adventure that the soul craves for….. These shepherd huts are unique in that they are all completely private and you are the ONLY guests – no shared kitchens or bathrooms here – just complete privacy.
FABULOUS walks include the Millennium Way, The Jurassic Way, the Battlefields walk and The Macmillan Way. Really cosy in the winter with fire pit, log burner or electric heaters and VERY warm duvets.
There is an ‘African hut’ style bathroom with a high powered gas fired shower and an eco loo, with full running hot and cold water. Camp fire and plenty of wood is available.
There is a barbeque or a George Foreman grill in your hut, or order a Chinese take away which can be delivered to the yard. A mobile shop comes into the yard on Saturday mornings which sells delicious fresh meat and vegetables.

Listen to the resident owls call whilst you experience that little adventure of sleeping amongst nature but in a beautifully comfortable bed. Only a ten minute walk to the nearest pub, or five minutes by car to the nearest shops.
RIVER SHEPHERDS HUT
River shepherd hut is absolutely amazing. It is beautifully situated right on the banks of the river Cherwell. It has an outdoor veranda that overlooks the water, with steps leading into the river for that early morning swim..(?!) On the veranda there is a cast iron chiminea which is great to cook on. It also has a romantic double hammock. The interior is beautifully designed and very stylish with
