The Parlour

The Parlour is a lovely, completely self-contained luxury Shepherd Hut, built by Blackdown Shepherd Huts. It comes with a fully-fitted kitchen, en-suite shower and toilet, and a full-sized double bed and dining area. There's a radio, but there's no TV or Wi-Fi. You won't need it though with so much beautiful countryside around you to explore. It's a chance to get off-grid and leave your hectic life behind for a few days. Watch the sun setting or the cows go up for evening milking. Cook dinner on your Indian kadai firebowl and keep warm sitting around it as the evening cools. Have fun on our antique swing, which hangs from the branch of an old ash tree. Listen to the dawn chorus in the morning while you wake up after a good night's sleep, then enjoy your coffee and a proper Staffordshire breakfast on your terrace. 

Surrounding the Parlour is an orchard of fruit trees, and your front doors open to a spectacular view of open fields, trees and The Weaver Hills in the distance.  

The Parlour's features include:

  • Double bed

  • Ensuite with shower

  • Fully-fitted hand-built oak kitchen with fridge and induction hob

  • Outdoor patio area with kadai barbeque and seating

  • Wool insulation to keep you toasty warm

  • oak floors throughout

  • Dining area

  • Storage space 

  • Log burning stove

  • All the logs you need for your stove and kadai

  •  free off-road parking

  • Open all year (including Christmas and New Year)

Some of the reviews we've had so far from our lovely guests...

"A stunning shepherds hut, the photos don’t do it enough justice. Beautiful surroundings with views for miles. Excellent, attentive hosts who were willing go above any beyond to make our stay enjoyable-and it certainly was! We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend!"

"Absolutely loved our weekend away in this stylish Shepherds hut, it’s super cosy and the little details are fantastic. never wanting for anything. David and Tessa were great hosts going above and beyond. The views are fabulous, with the cows as your neighbours. Really can’t rate this place enough. It’s beautiful. So glad we found it x"
