A cute little countryside retreat for two, this charming wooden shepherd’s hut, with its log burner and private hot tub, is a romantic place to spend a few nights or so in the Peak District.
If you’re looking for a quirky, romantic place to stay while you explore the Peak District, this charming little shepherd’s hut is a brilliant choice. Set on a former farm estate that comprises a collection of restored stone buildings that now offer luxurious holiday accommodation, the cabin offers walks into the rolling countryside straight from its barn-style door. With a log burner and a hot tub, it’s the perfect place to get cosy at any time of year, while Peak District adventure activities, charming towns like Bakewell and Buxton, and stately homes including Chatsworth House, are all within easy reach.
The kitchen area is surprisingly well-equipped for preparing breakfast, lunch and even dinner – there’s a double hob, a fridge, a toaster and a kettle, as well as a small foldaway table.
Take the weight off your feet on the sofa as you sip a cup of coffee, or watch your favourite programme on the 32-inch flat-screen TV. There’s a log burner to add to the feeling of romance, while additional heating is supplied on a thermostat.
There’s also a double bed with a comfy deep mattress, whilst the shepherd’s hut also has the luxury of a modern en-suite shower room with a basin and WC.
Outside, you’ll have a private walled garden area with seating and a wood-fired hot tub available to use, all to yourself. There is also a private parking space.
The owners live on the site and are available to answer any questions you may have. However, there is a lockbox with a key to allow for a self-check-in. There are other holiday properties on the site.

The location is semi-rural and once you’re settled in, there isn’t any need for a car if all you’re after is a relaxing stay with fine Peak District country walks from the door. The local village is about a 5-10-minute stroll away and is very pretty with limestone houses, a duck pond and a pub that serves good local ales and food.
The nearest shops are approximately 3 miles away in Eyam. If you want more choice of places to eat and drink, there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs in neighbouring villages and towns. Bakewell is just a 10-minute drive away and here foodies should check out the fine dining options at Fischer Baslow Hall, while history buffs should head to Chatsworth House. The spa town of Buxton is also a short drive, of about 20 minutes, and is a lovely place to explore.
If you’re looking for more action, activities including abseiling, rock-climbing, guided walks and cycling can be pre-arranged by the property owners. Please ask our Guest Services team for details.
A car is advised for travelling to this property. There is a local bus service that operates from the pub in the village which is a 5-10-minute walk away.
