Mhairi came into our workshop a whirlwind of ideas and plans for the development of her business in the Lammermuir Hills near Duns. With a clear vision of providing luxury accommodation to holiday makers, she chose our huts for their expert craftsmanship and our ability to interpret her creative vision.
No-one knows this landscape and these huts like Mhairi, here is an extract from her website www.uplandshepherdhuts.co.uk
The Gardener’s Hut
Next to the Farmhouse, in a raised position with stunning uninterrupted southerly views of the valley The Gardener’s Hut is luxuriously comfortable quiet and peaceful.
Queen size bed, comfy chair, table and chairs, wood burning stove, Roberts Radio. En suite shower room with basin, shower cubicle and state of the art dry composting loo.
There are no facilities to wash up dishes inside the hut. There is a washing up bowl outside the hut but you will have to heat up your water in the old fashioned way on the wood burning stove. We can provide a cool box and ice blocks. Just ask if you need it. There is a fridge for guests use in the outbuildings.
There is a very basic uncovered “outside kitchen” to the side of the hut for your use. There is a Kadai Fire Bowl BBQ, a small gas hob, a kettle, pan and frying pan, sharp knives and other daily necessities.
If you absolutely cannot live without it there is WIFI at the farmhouse.
The Woodman’s Hut
It really is very special. Located high up on Shannobank above the Ancient Oak Wood, The Woodman’s Hut has fine views across the valley and down through the wood to the River Whiteadder.
An extremely comfortable 4’6″ double bed with fabulous views. Wood burning stove perfect for brewing your morning cuppa and en suite shower room.
