If you want something different but very special then Glyn Shepherds hut is for you. A great location for an exciting short break any time of the year. Glyn Shepherd's hut was built by Plankridge - Dorset hutmakers to a very high standard. Plankridge are faithful to the spirit of the classic shepherd's huts described by Thomas Hardy. Many years ago shepherd's often lived out with their flocks. They worked especially hard during lambing season. The full time attendance could go on for weeks. The huts gave Shepherd's and their dogs shelter, somewhere to eat and sleep, stay warm, and to avoid the harsh weather. Changes in agriculture meant that hut making declined in the 20th century, but since 2000 the craft has been revitalised by Plankridge founders Richard Lee and Jane Dennison. We drove to Dorset to visit and sat for quite a while discussing this luxurious Glyn Shepherd's Hut, and Plankridge certainly didn't disappoint. It has all the comfort and convenience of a small cottage and yet it's a Shepherd's Hut. Something a little different and the perfect place to stay and explore all that Snowdonia has to offer. More

Can’t begin to explain what a stunning location and stay me and my husband had. Catherine is absolutely wonderful, warm, welcoming and nothing was too much. She even offered to drive us to the local pub if we needed and let us use her oven...More
