New Hanson Shepherd’s Huts

Timeless holidays in the heart of the Peak District -an unforgettable experience.

Welcome to our hill sheep farm, situated above the River Dove near Milldale.

Beautifully positioned on the edge of a small woodland are two traditional shepherd’s huts, with views of the hills and countryside peeking through the trees.

Our huts have been named after our sheep dogs, Lily are dog friendly shepherd hut and Fern.

Each hut is carefully presented complete with wood burning stoves to make them cosy and inviting even on the wet and coldest days. A double bed with pretty linens, lanterns and fairy lights to create subtle lighting and atmosphere.

The huts have a veranda where guests can be immersed in nature, whilst watching the fabulous sunsets disappear behind the hills.New Hanson Shepherd’s Huts

Keeping with tradition our shepherd huts don’t have electricity, making them a more romantic, relaxing and rustic with nature on the doorstep.

There are power points for guests to use in the Old Dairy for charging twenty first century gadgets!

The toilets and showers are just a short stroll 20 meters away from the huts, through the apple orchard into the Old Dairy.

We are a perfect base to explore all the wonders the Peaks offer. Walks from the doorstep to the dales of the Dove, cycling the trails of Tissington & the Manifold on the old railway routes, caverns to explore, historic house of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall , Hardwick Hall, quaint limestone villages with hidden gems and traditions, such as well dressings, spa towns of Buxton & Matlock and the small market towns of Ashbourne & Bakewell. There are many more tourist attractions such as Alton Towers, Heights of Abrahm, Carsington Reservoir and Crich Tramways, something for everyone to enjoy.
