Glamping The Cotswolds
Glamp in The Cotswolds at Hill Farm in our Shepherds Huts near Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. We are a luxury glamping retreat set in the middle of our 450 acre working farm, and offer a friendly and peaceful holiday for couples and families seeking a relaxing break. Perfect for anyone who enjoys the countryside, we’ve thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as a boutique hotel, except outside your hut or tent lies rolling hills and unspoilt countryside. We are just 56 minutes on the train from London to Banbury station, and easily accessible by road.
JESTERS SHEPHERDS HUT
This romantic, solar powered shepherds hut has been customised for us and traditionally hand built by wonderful craftsman, using all natural wood. It is situated at the bottom of one of our paddocks, beside a small copse, and offers glamping accommodation. It has fabulous views up the hill, and guests can enjoy the gentle pace of the countryside which can help to relax and recharge our guests, with the sights and sounds of our sheep and the numerous wildlife around.
The hut has a king-sized double bed, with feather duvets and pillow, a woodburner to heat and boil a kettle on, and outside a eco-toilet, and a small shed with glamping cooking facilities! It also has a fire pit which can be used for cooking or warming you up, whilst you sit outside and look at the stars! Showers can be taken in our wonderful, quirky outdoor shower (gas powered) and changing hut beside the hut amongst the trees.
B AND B SHEPHERDS HUT
Guests can also stay in our very special 1800’s Shepherd’s Hut. Situated in an orchard below the main garden, it has fabulous westerly views and chickens, horses, birds, sheep and cattle as neighbours. A private shower / toilet is available just inside the farmhouse. Guests also have the choice of a full English breakfast in the farmhouse or your own uncooked breakfast delivered to you in a basket; a barbecue is also available to use upon request.
The B and B shepherds hut includes
- Standard double bed
- Feather duvet and pillows
- An antique settle
- An electric blanket
THINGS TO DO IN THE LOCAL AREA
There is plenty of things for our guests to do – from walking either around our farm or the Oxford Canal towpath, a picnic on our hill, cooking your own delicious barbecues (there is a vintage sheep trough with herbs) walking to one of the local pubs, sitting in a deckchair and listening to the skylarks, reading, bird watching, playing croquet, or even going on a bike ride (vintage bikes supplied but not helmets!) if there are more than two of you, you could also book the other shepherds hut and bell tents for friends!
Hill Farm is a traditional mixed family farm, based around the medieval village of Priors Hardwick, on the Warwickshire/ Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire border. It is 450 acres with the Oxford Canal cutting through the farm. The farm has been in the family since 1938, and we farm arable crops as well as having a large sheep flock. The farm is on a higher level stewardship scheme so we leave grassland strips around all the arable fields and allow wild flower margins which encourages an abundance of wildlife – hares, pheasants, deer, foxes and more… it’s also wonderful for bird spotting, especially tree sparrows and yellow hammers.
