Luxury Glamping
Self Catering Shepherd’s Hut, Wincle, Peak District

Our hut nestles within its own stone circle in the charming village of Wincle in the Dane Valley.

It offers a unique “get away from it all” experience in total privacy, not being overlooked the hut provides a luxurious romantic haven.

Bordered by a bluebell wood with rookery there is an abundance of wildlife to see. The views from the hut are stunning. There is a summerhouse to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun go down and a BBQ/fire pit to sit round later on.

The Shepherds Crook sleeps two and has an en-suite bathroom with shower, a well-equipped kitchen and a large double bed.

Feel free to roam over our 38 acres of fields, woodland and river bank. The charming local pub is just 5 minutes away over our fields.

Wincle is convenient for Buxton, Macclesfield and Leek. It is just 35 minutes from Manchester airport. Chester, Liverpool, Manchester and the Potteries are all within reasonable driving distance.

From Wincle you can explore the whole of the Peak District National Park.

The hut and it’s surroundings have felt like a fairytale. Everything that we needed was here. Ian and Angela are an absolute joy and provided wood and firelighters for the BBQ – and to top it all off some tomatoes fresh from the greenhouse. We will be raving about this place to our friends.

We had a lovely stay at the Shepherd’s hut. Such a beautiful location and so relaxing! The Summer house was lovely for watching the sun go down and seeing the stars come out. The Ship Inn do really lovely food and even have a good offering for vegans!. Love how the Shepherd’s Hut is decorated and the thoughtful welcoming touches. One night wasn’t enough. We will be back.

What a beautiful location! Our stay was perfect, walks close by and the shepherd’s hut is comfortable, well equipped and well designed. Angela and Ian have thought of everything which really made our stay that much more fabulous. The firepit is a stunning addition making our stay warmer and a little bit more exciting. We don’t do things like this in London. Thank you.
