  • 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 add a note at the time of booking and we will be in touch with the details.

    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)
