“A new and unique countryside shepherd hut retreat providing luxury camping accommodation in the heart of coastal Essex.”

Description of The Shepherds Hide

The Shepherds Hide is a luxurious new and unique self catering shepherds hut, tucked away on the heart of the Essex coast just outside Colchester.

It is perfect for short breaks, romantic getaways, a rural retreat or for longer self-catering glamping holidays in the countryside.

We have been busy over the past couple of months getting the Shepherds Hide ready for our first guests.

Our shepherds hut for two people is located on our family farm, hidden away in a wooded area adjacent to the mill pond in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Surround yourself in nature, forget the outside world and relax and enjoy this hidden gem.

We can offer you a really unique setting and the best glamping experience.

Our farm, known as Mill Farm, is about 55 acres of a mixture of arable, grassland, salt marsh, tidal creeks and inland waters.

For a holiday with nature, a rural retreat with luxury camping accommodation, you have come to the right place.

You may well not want to leave when you get here but if you do, you are in easy access to coastal towns such as Brightlingsea, Wivenhoe, Manningtree, Frinton-on-Sea, Clacton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze.

There is also the Dedham Vale famous for John Constable, Colchester Zoo, Colchester Castle, the luxury Lifehouse Spa in Thorpe-le-Soken and many Essex Wildlife Trust sites such as Fingringhoe, Walton-on-the-Naze and Abberton Reservoir.
