Set on the shores of Strangford Lough with picturesque views overlooking the drumlins of County Down, Ballyminstra Shepherds Hut is the ideal opportunity to get away from modern life and get back to basics. The Shepherd’s Hut is a truly secluded glamping hideaway lovingly designed to comfortably accommodate 2 people for a real escape to the country retreat. Situated on our family farm expect to see the flock during your stay.
The country chic styling of the hut is a delight, designed to ensure you enjoy your time in the countryside and have a comfortable stay. The hut has a kitchenette, a small breakfast bar and chairs by the window, and there is plenty of storage for clothes under the bed. There are two fireside chairs and a log burning stove inside to make tea and coffee and ensures the hut is cosy all year round.
When night falls and the stars start to pop out, torches provide all the light that you need. You can cook up a storm on the fire pit outside and stay warm as you star gaze at the countryside night skies, toasting marshmallows. You’ll sleep soundly in the comfy double bed inside the hut, and awake to the sound of the birds singing and animals in the neighbouring fields!
There is running water which can be heated the old fashioned way, on top of the stove. Electricity is limited with enough to power the lights and charge a mobile, entertainment can be sought from the Robert's radio or a competitive boardgame. A breakfast hamper is available on request. A wash bowl is provided for an alfresco shower and there is a toilet on site. Why not bring your bikes.
