Shepherd's Hut - Comfortable Camping in Dartmoor, Devon
Our Shepherd's Hut is for 'comfortable camping' and those who want a stylish, different holiday experience.
There's something about a shepherd's hut; something spiritual, some tug to the past. New or old, shepherd's huts are a pure dollop of nostalgia on wheels. They're tough as old boots and, with their cosy stoves, pretty much an all-weather retreat (much cosier than a tent). They're movable feasts and yet much cooler than a caravan. Best of all, you get to fling off the trappings and traumas of everyday and make believe - at least while you're snug inside - that you've been teleported back to a simpler, more honest time.Adrian Tierney-Jones "Shepherd's huts are the new country accessory", Daily Telegraph, 29 Jan 2009
