Brandeston, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
Tucked away in it's own secluded orchard sits The Scrumpy Shepherd. This handcrafted, hideaway for two, is full of delightful details from the copper fittings in the ensuite to the flower filled milk churns in the meadow.

Combining the charm of heritage fittings with modern facilities, The Scrumpy Shepherd offers pure luxury on a compact scale. The handcrafted kitchenette is beautifully equipped and a wood burning stove creates a cosy cabin. At the end of the day you will climb up into the full size double bed and wake up to beautiful views across the fields from the luxury of your bed. The attention to detail is continued outside too, with lanterns in the trees, a fire pit, barbecue and bespoke furniture, all crafted on the family farm - relax and reflect in the most restful setting.

Reviewed 25 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

A surprise for my husbands birthday, I booked a 2 night break, after the first night we extended our stay.
Superb first night supper brought across to us by our friendly hosts Sarah & Daniel.
Location of the shepherds hut was superbly placed, in a location surrounded by country walks & peacefulness.
Very warm & cosy with the log burner & plentiful amount of logs supplied.
Shepherds hut is furnished to a very high standard, with everything you need to escape the hustle & bustle & with no television or WiFi to distract HOORAY.
Looking forward to escaping here soon.

Management response:

We are so glad you had a lovely and relaxing stay and were very pleased to help out with the surprise Birthday celebrations! We would welcome you back anytime, and be delighted to show you some more walks!
