Lovingly handcrafted to the highest specification, using mainly reclaimed materials the Upland Shepherd Huts are quite simply beautiful. Located in the Scottish Borders and close to North Northumberland which means there are a wide variety of outdoor pursuits within reach. Edinburgh is under an hour away too.

Eco-friendly and off-grid these huts are powered by solar panels. These power internal lights, fire up the boiler and charge a mobile phone. You may need to walk up the hill to get a signal though! Insulated with sheep's wool keeps them cosy in winter along with a wood burning stove, and cool in the summer.

Your comfort has been a priority with the huts furnished to a very high standard. The White Company crisp cotton bedding and towels, and quality blankets from Lovat Mill. Each hut has an en-suite shower room with plenty of hot water and state of the art eco waterless loos.

The shepherd's huts are in a very rural area with sheep, lambs and pheasants - So sorry no pets allowed.

The Gardener's Hut and The Woodman's Hut both sleep 2 at a price from £85 a night Monday to Thursday and £95 Friday to Sunday. 2 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY.

My wife and I stayed in the Shepherd's Hut for our honeymoon and it proved to be a very peaceful and relaxing break. Mhari was extremely friendly and welcoming, the hut had everything we needed, including shower and hot running water. It was great fun using the wood burner.
The views and countryside were stunning and teeming with wildlife; we saw deer, woodpeckers and plenty of chaffinches, Bluetits.
It was also a treat to see the beauty of the starry night sky in all its glory!
Highly recommended to all.

We stayed in the Woodman's Hut for our honeymoon and had the most wonderful, peaceful holiday. The hut was beautifully kept and had some lovely touches that made it stand out for us. Our privacy was respected and anything we needed was sorted quickly. Mhairi was so welcoming and helpful, a big thank you to Upland Shepherd Huts from us. We will be back for our anniversary for years to come :)

My boyfriend and I spent a lovely few days in the Woodman's hut earlier this year. It was wonderfully peaceful and the hut was equipped with everything you needed for a faff-free weekend - wood burner, tea, lovely bed, fresh eggs and even nips of whisky! Cooking meals outside was great fun, even more so because the chickens kept us amused the whole time.
The area is lovely to wander around - plenty of wildlife and great views. We drove to a few surrounding villages and were always back in time for tea! All in all, great stay and can't wait to go back sometime soon :)
