A Shepherd's Hut is a cosy little cabin traditionaly used by shepherd's going as far back as the 15th century. They would use these for sleeping in`out in the fields during lambing season so they could keep a close eye on their sheep. It was usually built with corrugated iron with iron wheels so that it could be moved from field to field.
Our fully insulated Shepherd's Hut comfortably sleeps 2 adults. Interiors are simply yet luxuriously furnished with a large king size bed, crisp white bed linen, fluffed pillows and Donegal woollen blankets. A little wood-burning stove ensures it stays warm and cosy. Sit out on the porch with a glass of wine and soak up the lake view and the hum of wildlife.
The Shepherd's Hut comes with:
Luxurious kingsize 5-star grade bed
Wood-burning stove with a supply of firewood
Lake, mountain and forest views
Crisp white 100% cotton bedding & Donegal handmade tweed blankets
