The two shepherds huts at Lowes Farm are not only cosy and well equipped but also eco friendly. Found just outside the Staffordshire village of Grindon in the southern end of the beautiful Peak District National Park, the huts are set in a natural meadow, on top of a hill, with truly stunning views over the Manifold Valley.
The quiet and peaceful, rural location is perfect for relaxing but is still within easy reach of the bustling but friendly market towns of Leek (20 minutes), Ashbourne (25 minutes), Bakewell (35 minutes) and Buxton (30 minutes).
Walking and cycling are plentiful with the Manifold, Tissington and High Peak trails nearby. Cycle hire is available for the Manifold Trail at Waterhouses (15 minutes)
Just some of the nearby attractions include Peak Wildlife Park (15 minutes); Alton Towers and Splash Landings (25 minutes); the caves at Castleton (40 minutes); Chatsworth and Haddon Hall (40 minutes); the Heights of Abraham and Matlock (45 minutes). Tittesworth Reservoir is great for walking and also offers sail boats, canoes, paddle boarding, archery and axe throwing! Details of these and other local attractions can be found on the Lowes Farm websites (www.lowesfarm.co.uk and www.lowesfarm.biz)
The two huts, Doris and Shirley, have the same internal specifications except that Shirley has a double bed and sleeps up to 2 persons while Doris has a double bed with a bunk over (loved by children) and accommodates up to 3 people.
Each hut features:
Log burning stove (with built in oven).
Calor hob and grill.
On board eco toilet.
Sheep’s wool insulation.
Cool box (with ice blocks).
Individual fire pit (next to the hut).
The nearby barn has been converted for the dedicated use of the huts and houses a walk in wet room with handbasin and conventional toilet and a utility area. The utility room has washing up facilities, a small freezer for the ice blocks for the cool box and a secure cupboard for each hut that has sockets and charging points for mobile phones, ipads etc.
Lowes Farm is the perfect getaway. Great for a romantic break, getting away from the stresses of modern life, taking time out with the cute and friendly farm animals (horses, miniature sheep and chickens), introducing children to the countryside or as a base for visiting the local attractions.
