Relax and reflect in this most restful rural setting. The Scrumpy Shepherd sits in a private orchard, in an elevated position, enjoying views over the valley. This hand crafted Shepherd's hut offers pure luxury with a sumptuous double bed, fold out oak table and chairs, hand build oak kitchen area comprising of microwave oven, hob, mini fridge, butler sink, ensuite shower room and a wood burning stove. There are also bicycles available for guests to use, please bring your own safety equipment!
It is difficult to think of a more unique and special place to spend a few days. The beautiful smell of the hand-crafted wood as you enter is the first of many things which will amaze you! The copper piping in the ensuite, the oak kitchen, the superb 'tap lights' in Kilner jars!
Guest have sole use of Scrumpy Shepherd and the private orchard together with access to other areas of the family farm as described on arrival.

A complimentary welcome hamper with treats from the farm including a home baked cherry and walnut cake (the walnuts are from a tree on the farm), Pump St chocolate, Paddy and Scotts coffee, marshmallows for toasting and Sloe gin made from sloes gown in the hedgerows. (Contents may vary!)
The farm offers several other secluded and romantic places to enjoy the sunset over the valley or a candlelit picnic down on the meadows bordering the River Deben.

We are a small, independent holiday lettings agency based in Suffolk, called CottageTree Ltd. We also manage the bookings for some of our cottage owners through Airbnb, which enables you, the guest, to have confidence in the property that you are considering booking, and the service that you will receive throughout your stay.
We both live in Suffolk and visit all of the properties that we manage and so are able to answer any questions that you might have. We are also very happy to help and advise on places to explore, and (our favourite past-time) restaurants, pubs and cafes.
