Moss Shepherd's Hut
Escape the busy life and indulge in calm serenity and have peace to read that book you have always wanted to, chat to loved ones and just be..... Without the distractions of phones, Internet and TV you can completely unwind, (although 4G is very good and available if you need it!).
This beautifully presented shepherds hut, Moss, is one of a pair of huts, located in the heart of Egerton, extremely accessible yet feeling like you are a million miles from civilisation. This is an “off grid” experience with the fun of a camping style stay with the luxury of a comfy bed with hotel style linen and towels and a full shower-room. The hut sits in a sheep paddock / field with wonderful views across the countryside. Superb facilities have been considered including washing up area, covered cooking area with gas ring, logs, kindling, drinking water and even ice blocks for your garden fridge (a cool box!) Options available to add a breakfast box and even a cocktail box onto your stay.
