If you are one for luxury but love the idea of getting
back to nature then this is the place to be!
Your beautifully hand-crafted, traditionally styled hut is just beautiful inside and out... get busy doing nothing in this idyllic back-to-nature family retreat.
Otter's Holt can comfortably sleep two plus a cot, or four persons without a cot (2 adults, 2 children). This postcard-pretty bespoke Shepherd's Hut is not short of grown-up luxuries, with hot tub and fabulous views of the countryside... there is no compromise on comfort here.
Please note: At present we DO NOT accept guests onto site, other than those booked.
In your Shepherd's Hut you will all find a king-size deep mattress, a bunk bed where the top bed will fold up to reveal a comfortable seating area. A cleverly designed kitchen where you will then find a Belfast sink, two-ring hob, mini oven and fridge. You will also find a separate bathroom with a flushing loo and lovely warm shower. To keep you warm on a cold winter nights there is also a wood-burning stove which adds that extra atmosphere.
If you like the idea of sitting by your fire pit watching the flames dance, or in your toasty relaxing hot tub you might hear a fox calling, an owl hooting along the valley or the farm’s cattle gently settling down for the evening, this is certainly for you.
Set at an angle to Beaver's Lodge you will feel quite private and have your own large patio-area - complete with a wood-fired hot tub and table and chairs to the front and sun loungers and delightful pizza oven to the side of the hut - a great place for soaking up the sun and enjoying the fabulous views and sounds of the countryside.
Our hot tub is refreshed for every new guests arrival and is re-filled with our own spring water. Due to the fact we completely refill the tub before your arrival please do not expect the tub to be hot when you arrive but it will only take a few hours for it to heat hot enough before you may wish to jump in.
This has been one of the best holidays and it’s all down to the amazing hosts at Otter's Holt. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and truly part of the family. The shepherds hut was outstanding! We can’t wait to go back!
We had a wonderful stay at the Shepherds Hut, all the little details and touches made all the difference. The location was beautiful, the owners were really helpful and we couldn’t fault the stay in any way. We’ll definitely be visiting again and recommending to our friends and family.
The hut was lovely. My kids loved the space around it and what was to offer. A nice touch was to look around and Dave and Vicki's farm. Would go again. Thanks.
The hut is cosy and very comfortable, in a stunning location. The owners were great and very helpful, and you could tell that they cared about us and our comfort during the stay. It will be a place we will happily come back to.
We want to say thank you to Dave and Vicki for letting us use your little retreat, we had the most fantastic time and came away well and truly relaxed. The facilities at Otter's Holt Sheperds Hut exceeded our expectations, the little hamper of necesssities is a cute added extra and was very unexpected. The bed was very comfortable and the jacuzzi was fabulous! We cannot wait to return.
My boyfriend and I stayed here and we had an amazing few days! The hut, surroundings, hot tub and surrounding towns were amazing! We enjoyed going over to the farm and seeing the general day to day running, it was very insightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Otter's Holt! Thank you so much for making our stay memorable!
