Shepherd’s Hut


A hand-crafted, traditionally designed Shepherd’s Hut, offering peace and tranquillity to those who are looking for space and time to create.

Abundance of Thanks, to you and your family for the sincere welcoming stay we had, at your beautiful Shepherd’s Hut. Your hospitality and wonderful energy at Rhydd Farm Writers Retreat, lifted my spirits. A good night’s rest and beautiful breakfast !!!!! I hope to see you again.

Arriving to the warmest of welcomes by the host, I was shown to the Shepherd's Hut, my delightful weekend getaway, set in an orchard amidst an enchanting smallholding. I fell asleep to the view of the twinkling stars in the dark sky, viewed through the picture window from my bed. I awoke refreshed to the sound of a cockerel greeting the dawn. The hut is ideally equipped with comfortable bed, writing desk, chair and bedside lamp and would be an ideal retreat for authors, artists and those seeking solitude. A 'must-try' experience that will be remembered with much fondness.
