The Humble Hideaway

The Humble Hideaway is our little piece of luxury hiding away in the woods. We think it's the perfect place to get away from the world and enjoy the great outdoors. It is only accessible by 4x4 or on foot and consists of a Plankbridge Shepherd's Hut and beautifully restored GWR Lamp Hut. The Shepherd's Hut has a double bed & wood burner in it. The GWR Lamp Hut, which was used originally for storing railway lamps, has a shower, gas cooker & kitchen area.

The Hideaway is completely off-grid with solar powered electricity and has a composting toilet. The camp area is in a fenced-off wooded glade, it has a fire pit and outdoor wooden furniture, hand-made on-site using wood milled from the farm.

The Hideaway can accommodate up to two extra people (children or adults) in a tent. You will need to bring your own tent and bedding for any additional guests. Dogs are welcome, they’re not allowed in the huts but they do have their own spacious dog kennel to stay in. Although the camp is fenced, it is not completely dog proof.
