Holiday with a difference

Are you tired of the same old thing? This shepherds hut HASN'T got a colour TV, hairdryer, telephone or DVD player, but what it HAS got is something that cannot be quantified.

When you wake up in the morning, having had the most beautiful sleep on the ultra comfortable bed, all you can see is a rolling meadow running down to the River Cherwell. You can listen to the buzzards calling while they soar above, having heard nothing but owls hooting during the night. Just you and nature - nothing else.

Walk along the river to the local pub serving home cooked food. Enjoy a nightcap by the camp fire before retiring to the divinely comfortable bed....

No neighbours, no noise, just complete peace and tranquility - a chance to recharge your batteries and have that little bit of adventure that the soul craves for.....

This shepherd hut is unique in that you are the ONLY guests - no shared kitchens or bathrooms here - just complete privacy

The Oxfordshire region

Beautifully rural and yet only just over an hour from London. and forty minutes from Oxford, Stratford and Warwick. Country walks, great pubs and close to many historic sites including the battlefield trail.


While you are staying in the Blackgrounds shepherd hut why don't you visit Stratford-Upon-Avon, Sulgrave Manor, (the ancestral home of George Washington). Warwick castle, Oxford, Blenheim Palace, or Canons Ashby? Then if you are tired of culture take a walk on our famous battlefield trail, and then reward yourself by going designer shopping at Bicester village!

"Perfect Orchard Hideaway"

Spent a couple of nights in this delightful little Shepherd's Hut, nestled in a lovely apple orchard amongst the horses of a working farm. Owner was delightful and provided some food items in the… More

We are so pleased you had a lovely time staying in Blackgrounds Farm shepherd hut but apologise for Percy and Peppa Pig's behaviour!! They love to come and see new guests and are ridiculously friendly. On the information sheet provided there is a warning that if you don't like pigs to let me know and I can shut them up.
Also, I am so sorry if it was a little dusty for you, the hut is throughly cleaned between guests but in October when the tractors are working in the fields and the windows are left open there is more dust around. You may find that your need for your inhaler was more to do with the feather duvet and pillows, which if I am aware of an asthma problem in advance I can easily rectify.
Thank you for your helpful review and we look forward to seeing you again.
