Shepherds hut
Thyme shepherd hut offers a glamping experience at its best, providing the chance to escape to the country and be at one with nature and the outdoors. Set in a beautiful rural location overlooking meadows, you can unwind in the peaceful Suffolk countryside, enjoy the sounds of the natural world, see the stars and detox from the digital world. Our two 16′ fully insulated Shepherd’s Huts crafted by local artisans are luxurious re-incarnations of the traditional mobile homes that shepherds used to live in whilst guarding their flocks yet still retaining their traditional style and charm but with modern comforts. They are an opportunity to ‘get away from it all’ whilst still enjoying some of the finer things in life – like a log fire, a luxurious double bed, en-suite hot shower and a proper ...Thyme shepherd hut offers a glamping experience at its best, providing the chance to escape to the country and be at one with nature and the outdoors.
