This custom built shepherd’s hut is ideal for a romantic break or an escape to the country.
Shepherd’s Delight is nestled under a hedge overlooking open countryside with wonderful views across the Aylesbury Vale. It has its own eco loo inside and an outside shower just beside the hut. There is a flushing loo and a shower at the farm if guests prefer.
Peacefully off the beaten track Hill View Farm is a small working family farm. Depending on the farming year/calendar our fields rotate between corn and grass. In the summer months we harvest the corn or make hay or silage from the grass and graze our cattle. The hut has a gate/wooden fence surrounding it to ensure that any inquisitive cattle can’t get too close when grazing in the surrounding fields.
Hill View Farm is not far from the Cotswold and Chiltern hills should you wish to venture further afield. If you fancy leaving the car behind you can either walk or use our bikes to cycle around the area taking in the countryside. There are a number of local pubs serving food (see “places of interest” page).
In nearby Twyford there is a well stocked village shop run by the locals and at Stratton Audley there is a gelato ice cream parlour, cafe and gift shop. There will be a welcome hamper to greet you when you first arrive, also a supply of basics such as coffee, tea and sugar in the hut.
If you prefer to prepare your own meals either on the BBQ or the little stove, you can top up your supplies in the nearby village of Launton which boasts an excellent traditional butcher and deli.
£83.34 + vat (£100) per night, minimum booking 2 nights.
Unlike times gone by, the hut has luxuries that no shepherd would have enjoyed. Inside there is a king size bed, eco loo, running water, 2 ring hob, a fridge and a wood burner. The hut even has its own solar panel providing lighting and 2 x 12V sockets. Though you may never need us, Hill View Farm Bed & Breakfast is just a brief five minute walk away if you do.
