Stylish Shepherds Cabin in the heart of the Cotswolds. Free-standing full sized bath, king size bed, two seater sofa and great views. This is as good as camping in the woods gets, no electricity but hot water, plenty of candles and gas to cook on.

The space
This romantic getaway has all you need for a weekend away or a short break. Less than 2 hours from London and an hour from Bristol the Shepherds Cabin is in the heart of the Cotswolds. At the head of the Slad valley, made famous by Laurie Lee's books, especially Cider with Rosie, this idyllic part of the world has changed little since his time. The walk to the Woolpack pub takes an hour and a half and takes you through an unspoilt valley with no houses or humans for the first hour. Or you can drive in 7 minutes. The cabin has hot and cold running water, NO ELECTRICITY, but plenty of candles and torches.
Regarding the corona virus: Please be aware that this is a "rustic" camping style experience. We will clean and sanitize the cabin between guests but if you are in a high risk category and/or expecting a surgically sterile cabin then this is not the place for you at the moment.

Guest access
Glorious Cotswold countryside.
Peace and quiet.
Plenty of space to park and walk down to the Shepherds Cabin we will show you around and leave you to it.
If you need it there is full 4G phone reception but why not just leave it in the car.

Other things to note
The cabin does not have electricity. But it has everything you need

Location

The Camp, England, United Kingdom

The Cotswolds are an internationally recognised Area of Outstanding Beauty and we are in the middle of it. Just a short walk from The Shepherd's Cabin is at the top of the Slad Valley, made famous in the book Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee and explorable via a network of well maintained and signposted paths and tracks. The Gloucestershire wildlife trust has marked a set of paths and routes to celebrate the centenary of the famous writer's birth and most importantly the valley leads you down hill all the way to the Laurie's local pub; The Woolpack.

A local institution, The Woolpack is a fantastic local pub in the traditional sense. Good food, great beer, quality locals and the odd fiddly diddly band to get things going.

Stroud Farmer's Market is regularly recognised as the best in the country and is open every Saturday from 9-2. It is well worth a visit for some great local produce.

I grew up in the Cotswolds and then spent a few years roaming around. I have now settled back where I came from with my husband and two small children, as well as an ever growing selection of plants and animals.
During your stay
We live on the farm but across a field and yard from the cabin. The cabin is very private and nestled in a thicket of ash trees, looking over green fields and trees. There are very friendly horses and sheep around. We will be available throughout your stay should you need anything but we will leave you to your own devices unless you needs us.

2 Friday's a month we run a rural takeaway delivery service and it is really popular in the local area. If you are staying on one of our delivery nights you could have a feast delivered to the cabin www.thecampkitchen.co.uk
