IN PARTNERSHIP WITH UNIQUE HIDEAWAYS
Shepherd’s huts date back to the 15th century when they were used as simple accommodation by shepherds tending their flock, but they’ve come a long way since then.
From king-size beds to woodburners and underfloor heating, here are 10 of the dreamiest shepherd’s huts with hot tubs in the UK you can book on Unique hideaways.
Shepherd’s huts with hot tubs in the UK
Mount View Retreat, Penzance
Most shepherd’s huts in the UK have a countryside view, but this one in Penzance comes with a sea view direct from the hot tub. And as far as settings go, it’s pretty epic. It overlooks St Michael’s Mount, which is a five-minute drive away, and the Lizard Peninsula, the most southernly tip of Britain. It has room to sleep four and there is even an honesty shop and washing machine on site.
Sleeps 4 | Price from £559 a week
Hayley’s Hut, North Devon
This idyllic shepherd’s hut is next level. Not only are there views of the rolling Devon hills, this place is set on its own private lake. Cosy up around the fire pit, cook up a feast in the outdoor kitchen or take a long soak in the hot tub while you gaze up at the starry night skies as it’s in a non polluted area. Guests are even welcome to bring their own fishing rods as there are coldwater fish in the lake.
Sleeps 2 | Price from £458 a week | Dog friendly
Kenny’s Hut, West Sussex
Going to Brighton for the weekend but want to stay somewhere a bit unusual? Why not book Kenny’s Hut a 20-minute drive from the famous ‘Lanes’ and pebble beach. Nestled at the end of a quiet country lane, this quirky shepherd’s hut comes with a king-size bed, stylish shower room, cosy wood-burner, fire pit BBQ and wood-fired hot tub. The South Downs and Devil’s Dyke are nearby. Bikes can even be hired from the owner.

Toby’s Hut, West Dorset
This charming shepherd’s hut is a colour lovers heaven. It offers amazing views of the Dorset countryside, which look even better when you’re watching them from the bubbling hot tub.

The Enchanted Wardrobe at Warleggan, Cornwall
You don’t get many shepherd’s huts with hot tubs in the UK that can sleep a family of five, so we think The Enchanted Wardrobe is a bit special. There’s a king-size bed for the adults and triple bunks for the kids. Four legged friends are also welcome. There is also WiFi to keep the little ones entertained, plus a fire pit for toasting marshmallows.

Otter’s Holt Shepherd’s Hut, Devon

You might spot an otter, deer or even a wild beaver here.

Posy Shepherd’s Hut, Somerset
