Shepherds Hut – Romantic rural retreat
This highly rated romantic property is compact and bijou, but has everything a couple should need. The luxury 20ft long Shepherd’s hut is situated in Avon Farm’s 230 acre land, however this attractive holiday accommodation is set in its own field overlooking a stunning outlook of another field which edges the river. There is a bench with seats for your personal use, plus your own hot tub to luxuriate in and enjoy your surroundings! The hut itself has a double bed at one end, and a walk-in shower with toilet and basin in a separate room at the other end of the hut. There is a fridge and microwave with a grill, a toaster, Kettle, and we also provide a special welcome basket.
Guests may go into the 15 stables, take a look at the goats, and chickens on the farm. If you are up early enough you can even help yourself to the fresh chicken eggs. The Shepherds hut has a private sole use hot tub which seats up to 4 people (hot tub instructions must be adhered to). There is a communal children’s play area and picnic bench, plus plenty of walks for dog lovers on the estate or along the river. We have also secured fishing rights for our stretch of the river on the farm, a short walk from the Cottage.
There are a great variety of places to eat, drink or take away nearby if you fancy a night off, simply check out our Things to Do page or your Welcome Pack also lists eateries and attractions in nearby Bristol and Bath.
Parking at Shepherds Hut
Parking in the car park is a short walk from the Shepherds Hut and you have shared access (with the other 4 properties) to the play area, stables and free eggs if you wish to visit the farm animals. The farm is relaxing and quiet, however you are close to both Bath and Bristol, which you can access via the close cycle path if you wish to explore. Our local pub The Bird in Hand is within walking distance.

Shared Space at Avon Farm Estate
The Avon properties share the 230 acre grounds, certainly enough space for everyone! There is an outdoor Children’s play area, Fishing on-site (free of charge, but need to ask for a licence). There are chickens located beyond the car park (you may help yourselves to eggs) and a goat to observe and feed (within reason) – please ensure you supervise any children feeding the goats, clear any litter dropped and do not feed the horses as they are not not ours… You are more than welcome to pat or stroke a nose though as they’d love that! Be aware with little ones that there is an unfenced river in the ground.
