make your nest the best

Peep show: Henry and Carolyn’s little shepherd’s hut

A few weekends ago I decided to get out of London and head to the countryside in search of fresh air and something new. Arriving at a little campsite consisting of a small wigwam, shepherd’s hut, compost loo and outdoor bath, nestled in the garden of English B&B owners Henry and Carolyn, I felt I had fulfilled my goal.

Based in Lower Buckton, just outside Ludlow, the little campsite is about as idyllic as they come. Henry and Carolyn have lived in their house for years, which they run as a B&B, but only recently decided to add the campsite as an extra source of income. The shepherd’s hut was found locally and over time they have filled it with various eclectic bits and bobs – pots, pans, retro crockery and vintage trunks. Space is scarce but they have managed to fit a little wood burner to keep you snug at night.

Aside from Carolyn’s fresh bacon sandwiches and homemade apple juice delivered, as quiet as a mouse, to the doorstep in the morning (she is quite the foodie and does cooking weeks as well), and the gentle plodding of their two horses around the camp in the early morning, my favourite element was without a doubt the outdoor bath, heated from underneath with logs, if only one had the patience to wait for them to work.

I didn’t.
