ESSEX SHEPHERDS HUT
The charming Essex Shepherd's Hut provides a luxury glamping experience in a beautiful countryside setting in the heart of Essex.
The lovingly restored hut is of wooden construction and dates from the early 1900’s. It was originally used as mobile accommodation for a steam plough driver and belonged to the Company JT Oliver and Sons of Luton, being used when travelling round to different farms.
Nowadays it is permanently placed in the wonderful Essex countryside with stunning views over the neighbouring fields, regularly frequented by local wildlife including deer, muntjac and hares.
Puttocks Farm itself is a working arable farm which is already home to a 4 star bed and breakfast, popular with guests looking to enjoy the relaxing local area, or those looking to fly out of nearby Stansted Airport.
We can provide a light continental breakfast to enjoy in the hut
Free Wifi is available along with electrical sockets in the hut
The hut contains an ensuite with WC and shower
Microwave, toaster, tea & coffee facilities, fridge and sink
A picnic bench is situated outside the hut to enjoy the fresh air
