Get off the beaten track and stay in the beautiful countryside of Northern Ireland, far from the rush of modern life in your own private shepherd's hut. Disconnect from your daily life and routine for as long as you need, and spend your days hiking, fishing, or simply relaxing in the beautiful surroundings.
Arrive and check in to your unique accommodation, a private shepherd’s hut, then spend the next few nights enjoying the peace and tranquility this little corner of Northern Ireland has to offer.
If you need something to fill the days with, there is plenty on offer. Meander along Johnny’s Trail, planted with more than 23,000 native trees, listen to the singing birds and discover the pond, roundhouse and bushcraft area on your way. Let the kids busy themselves in our purpose-built playground or enjoy a spin in our tractor barrel ride.
