  • description

    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. There are also bikes for you to use! (Remember your helmet and reflective clothing!)

    A little extra...

    A complimentary welcome hamper with treats from the farm including a home baked cherry and walnut cake (the walnuts are from a tree on the farm), Pump St chocolate, Paddy and Scotts coffee, marshmallows for toasting and Sloe gin made from sloes gown in the hedgerows. (Contents may vary!)

    The farm offers several other secluded and romantic places to enjoy the sunset over the valley or a candlelit picnic down on the meadows bordering the River Deben.

    Breakfast baskets, picnic hampers and evening meals can be arranged directly with the owner. Please call us or add a note at the time of booking and we will be in touch with the details.

    Highly recommend this wonderful shepherds hut! Thank you so much for making our first two nights as a married couple so special. You went above and beyond and it was the perfect place! So many special touches. A beautiful secluded, romantic and magical spot. Thank you! Maddie & Tom, (Stayed July 2018)
    Perfect for a relaxing peaceful mini break in a lovely rural area Claire, (Stayed July 2018)
    “The Scrumpy Shepherd Hut is just what we were looking for- perfect country getaway. The hut was clean and more spacious than you would expect. We were even given welcome goodies - the cake was amazing ! The hosts were really friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommended this accommodation.” Amy, (Stayed June 2018)
    Superb accommodation and peaceful location. A true gem. Hosts very welcoming and also provided a lovely welcome pack. Jason, (Stayed May 2018)
    “The photos don’t really do the shepherds hut justice, it’s a romantic little haven, tucked in the most peaceful spot. It has everything you need and the space is stylishly designed with lots of lovely touches. There’s a couple of nice pubs close by for the evening - if you can drag yourself away from the fire pit and cosy hut. An amazing bolt hole for a few relaxing day - can’t recommend enough! Thank you for a fab stay!” Stephanie, (Stayed May 2018)
    The scrumpy shepherd is set in the most picturesque setting! Such attention to detail and thank you Sarah for being such a wonderful host. I can’t wait to return again! Louise, (Stayed April 2018)
    Scrumpy Shepherd was just wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the hosts Sarah & Daniel were fantastic with lots of advice on local advice on where to visit. The Shepherds hut was in a wonderful secluded apple orchard and the only sound was the birds singing. Cant wait to visit again Lavinia, (Stayed April 2018)
    A cosy and quiet hideout which we would recommend to everybody. The hosts were brilliant and made us feel welcome and looked after without being intrusive. The place is well kitted out with all the essentials that you would possibly need and was comfy, warm and homely. It’s really well located too, reasonable driving distances to many National Trust sites, such as; Sutton Hoo and Dunwich Heath. We would definitely consider visiting again! Paja, (Stayed April 2018)
    The Scrumpy Shepherd is a truly unique place. Set in the middle of the tranquil Suffolk countryside, it is a peaceful getaway with all the basic amenities (warm shower, full functional indoor toilet, sink, fridge, toaster, microwave, double bed, table, stools..) as well as some much appreciated additional touches such as the walnut loaf, fresh eggs and sloe gin! The interior was clean and very well furnished and to be honest much warmer and cosier than I imagined! The owner and Cottage Tree staff were incredibly helpful and prompt at responding to any query we had. Overall, it was an excellent experience and highly recommend this place!” Jason, (Stayed April 2018)
    We absolutely loved the Scrumpy Shepherd and will definitely go back. It is even more beautiful than the photos suggest and the owners helpfully had the wood burner on for when we arrived. The personal touches like the welcome hamper, birthday cake and fresh flowers really make you feel welcome and the attention to detail with the decor is amazing. Couldn’t recommend enough. Perfectly placed for exploring the Suffolk coast Rachael and Fahad, (Stayed March 2018)
    Scrumpy is a wonderful place - incredibly well designed and furnished and more than enough space for 2 of you. It's super private and I imagine would be fantastic in the summer too. We could have happily stayed for a week - thanks for hosting us! Faustine And Adam, (Stayed March 2018)
    What a fantastic weekend! Tucked away in a parcel of land amongst farmers fields is the Scrumpy shepherd’s hut. Perfect for stargazing and long walks through the Suffolk countryside. We arrived on a cold weekend, but we were warm and snug with the wood burner which kept the hut warm through the night too! The hosts were truly lovely and greeted us as we arrived and left a host of treats and snacks. The hut itself has everything you need, whether you want to cook in or head out on the short walk across the fields to the pub. Make sure you book in advance for dinner at the pub! Highly highly recommend!. Thank you for making our escape to the countryside one to remember! Sam, (Stayed February 2018)
    We have just arrived home after a truly fantastic night away at the scrumpy shepherd. The hut is just beautiful and in fantastic surroundings. It is beautifully finished with everything you could possibly need for a quiet and relaxing break. Daniel and Sarah are fantastic hosts and a real credit to the airbnb experience. On a personal note many thanks for coming out in the dark and delivering a bottle of tonic :) I really can't put enough praise in this little box so do yourself a favour and book it you won't be dissapointed. Once again thank you Daniel and Sarah and we will see you again soon. Mark, (Stayed February 2018)
    The shepherds hut was lovely and superbly cosy. The decor was great and the welcoming pack was a thoughtful touch. The location was beautiful and quiet, with the exception of a couple of owl hoots! The owners were welcoming but respected our privacy. They were very quick to respond to any queries that we had. All in all a lovely break Tanya, (Stayed December 2017)
    “Great place and our host couldn't have been nicer!” Robin, (Stayed November 2017)
    “An enchanting hideaway for a weekend escape - beautifully finished with thoughtful touches. Cosy with the log burner.” Julian , (Stayed October 2017)
    This place totally exceeded expectation. Set back from a lovely (silent) lane by an entire field, situated in its own orchard, with a sunflower field next door. The accommodation is far larger than trad huts and was beautifully presented. Stunning detail and care provided by our hosts including delicious local sloe gin, chocs, marshmallows, flowers in a vase etc. Choice of BBQ, firebowl AND internal woodburner to get your firelighting glands going. A genuine lux retreat, deep in Suffolk country. Matt & Emily, (Stayed September 2017)
    Scrumpy is fantastic. Brilliantly set in a small orchard and with instant access to surrounding fields. We saw a wonderful sunrise from the adjacent field. The hut is larger than we anticipated and is easily comfortable for two people. The outside area is great for sitting around, having an open fire, (logs are supplied) or even a bbq. We were very impressed with Suffolk, it is the rural England of yesteryear, plenty of farming but plenty of wild land, meadows and woods, and numerous fens full of wildlife and waterways. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. Andy, (Stayed August 2017)
    This place is an absolute find. I came on my own to get away for a few days and it was ideal. You feel completely secluded and yet also in the middle of nowhere. And I waking up to a field of sunflowers outside my window was pretty special. From the beautiful interior of the hut (loved all the copper piping), fairy lights in the garden, to having marshmallows to toast round the fire, they have thought of everything Tom, (Stayed August 2017)
    What a wonderful place to stay! Peaceful setting and the shepherd's hut itself was beautifully furnished & equipped- I couldn't have asked for more...I really didn't want to leave this morning. The little added extras like the coffee, chocolate etc made all the difference. Thank you Sarah for being such a lovely host. Lou x Lou, (Stayed July 2017)
    Susan and Daniel are the best hosts we have ever come across. Their welcome was amazing and The Scrumpy Shepherd is a fabulous place to stay. The welcome pack included a home baked cake, wine , freshly ground coffee, chocolate, sloe gin etc etc etc. The 'Hut' is truly six stars set in an idyllic environment. Top notch fixtures and fittings - absolutely fully thought out with the visitors comfort in mind. The area is beautiful, tranquil yet close enough to coast and lovely Suffolk villages and towns. We are veteran Airbnbers and this is the best yet. The online pictures do not do the property justice! Book with confidence. Thank you Sarah and Daniel Bill and Fiona Bill and Fiona, (Stayed July 2017)
