Shepherds Hut Holidays at Borleymere.

Perfect for short breaks, romantic getaways, or longer self-catering holidays in the countryside, our traditional Shepherds Hut accommodation is situated in the picturesque setting of the Stour Valley on the Essex, Suffolk border. The ideal location for glamping in Suffolk, we are under two hours drive from London.

Cool camping and Glamping in the UK has become very popular, but what is glamping? Glamping is camping in luxury. Glamping holidays combine unusual places to stay with the tranquillity of the wild and the comforts of home. Here at Borleymere we aim to offer exactly that, the setting for your secluded lakeside holiday in Suffolk is surrounded by hazel woodland and wild flower meadows, while our superb Shepherd's Hut offers self-catering accommodation that is both quirky and extremely cozy. A little piece of paradise.

Come and stay in a Shepherds Hut, we look forward to meeting you...

Our Shepherd's Hut.

Our Shepherd's Hut accommodation is traditionally built and similar to those lived in by shepherds tending their flocks centuries ago. It's very snug and contains a full sized double bed, a fold-away table and chairs, a small basin, a single gas ring and a wood-burning stove.

Next to the Shepherds Hut is a kitchen cabin with a gas oven, butler sink, a cool box with ice-packs and all the other bits and pieces for preparing your meals. There is also a barbecue and wood brazier so you can cook or enjoy a fire in the evening while watching the fish rise on the lake.

The shower cabin is tucked into the edge of the woodland. Here you will find a hot shower, sink and an eco-friendly compost loo.

The Shepherd's Hut and its facilities are for two people who want a bit of peace and quiet and a simpler way of life. There are torches, lanterns and candles but no telly, no wireless connection and no mains power. You can charge your phone and replenish the ice-packs at the nearby pump house.

This is dog friendly accommodation please contact us to discuss arrangements.
