Perfect for one or two people who desire nothing more than time to switch off and get back to basics, without giving up a comfy bed.

The newest arrival at Big Sky, the Shepherd's Hut enjoys its own quiet patch with unbroken views across our tree planting meadow.

We see it as the ideal escape for a campfire-centric break in nature, or as a pod where creative juices can run wild. Whether you plan on spending quality time with a book or working on your next novel, we've got you covered.

The Hut boasts an extendable bed which slides out from a large single to a healthy double, a wood burning stove, stable door and a fold-out table.

Although the Hut is built without electrics we've installed a smart little solar-powered system which will ensure you've plenty of light even when the sun goes down.

If you'd like to use the Hut as a place to catch up with work, we offer an add-on extra including a remote wifi hub and a solar generator, which can easily keep your laptop and phone charged throughout your stay.

Just outside you'll find a private field kitchen, firebowl, grill and seating. We can even bring over a hammock on a stand if you'd prefer!

We plan to create a private restroom in 2023 but for the end of 2022 the nearest loo is a three minute walk away. 

Hire of the Shepherd's Hut includes:​
  • Comfy accommodation for 1 or 2

  • We provide bedsheets, mattresses and toppers but ask guests to bring their own pillows, duvets (or sleeping bags), and covers (we can hire bedding if needed)

  • Exclusive use of the Shepherd's Hut and all its amenities

  • Firepit

  • Tripod grill

  • Outdoor kettle

  • Seating for two

  • Camp kitchen with single hob burner and basic camping crockery, cutlery, mugs and cooking equipment

  • 40l cool box (we replenish with ice packs when needed)

  • Unlimited fresh water


(just ask Dave or Em for these after you've booked, or on arrival)

  • £5 per day: 250W solar powered power pack (this can happily charge a laptop, has two USB charging points and comes with a solar panel to charge it up again on sunny days. Not suitable for high draw items like hair dryers, slow cookers etc!

  • £5 per day: Mobile wi-fi router. Mobile signal isn't at its best in rural Lincolnshire and while you won't get city-style broadband speeds out here we can supply a mobile router for basic online work and streaming

  • £20 for your stay: Full bedding, including duvet, pillow and covers

We're always happy to discuss discounts for anyone who fancies a longer stay writing a book or doing creative stuff!

While we love animals we can't allow pets on site as they stress our alpacas out. 

PS. If you're not a fan of bugs, flies, spiders, fresh air, the distant sound of tractors or cows or anything much to do with being outside in the countryside, our site may not be your ideal getaway!

We'll do everything we can to make your stay at Big Sky as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We love surprising our guests and making your stay unique so if you have any ideas we might be able to help with don't hesitate to ask :)

After seeing our episode on Ben Fogle's Make a New Life in the Country (S2 E2) we were contacted by a lady named Louise who offered us her Shepherd's Hut for a year! How cool!
