The Happy Hare

The Happy Hare

A charming en suite shepherd hut nestled below an old oak tree with it own private wood burning hot tub

From £110 per night

Leave your worries, and your car behind you as you take a gentle 200m stroll down to the Happy Hare shepherds hut.  

Put the kettle on whilst you unpack your belongings into the storage under the king-sized bed, then sit down and admire the views of the open countryside whist you tuck in to the local snacks provided for you.  If you listen carefully you may even hear the resident woodpecker!

A small kitchen dresser complete with a sink and gas hob, along with an en suite shower room and flushing toilet are all contained within this marvelously designed hut, that is heated to perfection by the small wood burner inside. 

Spend your days exploring the local area, or relaxing under the oak tree reading a book whist watching cows and wildlife that live in this rambling dairy farm. And your evenings soaking the day away under the starry night sky in your private wood burning hot tub.

Almost hesitant to leave a review for purely selfish reasons as I could stay here every weekend... This place is absolute paradise. Completely secluded location, a beautiful site with absolute everything you need. The caravan (if you can call it that) is extremely luxurious and has such a cosy bedroom. The facilities all worked flawlessly and the wood-fired hot tub was amazing - extremely warm until the early hours of the morning. The manager Hannah was brilliant - she went out of her way to ensure we had the best stay, (including helping us with our fire!). Couldn't recommend this place enough, certainly one for the bucket list.
