Glamp in style at the rural idyll escape of Borleymere Shepherd’s Hut in the beautiful Stour Valley countryside on the Essex-Suffolk border. The Shepherd’s Hut is for two and is set in a completely secluded spot with no near neighbours, no farm buildings, no other huts. It’s not even fenced in because the surrounding meadows, woodland and lake are all yours for your stay.
Borleymere Shepherd’s Hut offers the chance to shoot the breeze with the one you love and enjoy some real quality time. Switch off and relax, lie in a hammock listening to the trees rustling and the birds singing, take a country walk or sit in the dinghy and watch the wildlife at play on the lake.
We are about two hour’s drive from London and if you want to come by train (via Liverpool Street to Sudbury) we are very happy to pick you up and drop you back to Sudbury station.
THE SHEPHERD’S HUT
The Shepherd’s Hut was hand built to our own specification with emphasis on traditional materials with design quality and comfort as our priority. The accommodation is small but feels spacious with…
- Double bed
- Table and chairs
- Plenty of storage
- Wood-burning stove
- Decked area looking out over the mere
The adjoining KITCHEN CABIN has everything you need to prepare meals including
- Small oven and hob
- Barbecue and a wood brazier so you can sit and enjoy your supper by the fire
The SHOWER CABIN is tucked into the edge of the woodland, a short walk from the hut. Everything is designed to have a minimal impact on the environment and here you will find
- A hot shower
- Eco-friendly compost loo
The Shepherd’s Hut and its facilities are for two people who want a bit of peace and quiet and a simpler way of life. There are torches, lanterns and candles but no telly, and no power. You can charge your phone and replenish the ice-packs at the nearby pump house but that’s as close as you get to technology! The private lake at Borleymere is just outside the Shepherd’s Hut.
In the hut you will find a folder filled with information about local activities and places to visit including
- The Dedham Vale
- Clare and Cavendish
- Bury St Edmunds
- Long Melford
- Walking and cycling
- Enjoy a wild swim in the River Stour
- Guided boat trips on The River Stour
