Enjoying a secluded location with wonderful views across the meadow and towards the traditional village of Bream, this shepherd’s hut is simply perfect for a couple wanting to embrace the countryside. A leisurely stroll (0.5 miles) will take you into the centre of the village, well served with a village pub, sports and social club with TV, two convenience stores, a coffee shop, and a fish and chip shop. From here, it is easy to explore the Forest of Dean with plenty to see and do. Take on the cycle trail and explore the sculpture trail, and for the thrill seekers, the downhill courses will test even the experienced mountain bikers.

A great holiday destination for those who want a more comfortable camping experience. The shepherd's hut has that "tiny house" feeling and is extremely cozy. We had a delightful welcome from the proprietors, and its great location makes for an excellent base to explore the area from.

Although basic its incredibly cosey and comfortable. Placed in a really private spot. You really feel like you're sleeping in the woods. Brilliant little place can highly recommend.
