Skylark hut in the Hampshire countrysideOakley
Nestled in the peaceful surroundings of Summerdown Estate is a small cluster of ALTIDO-hosted cosy shepherds huts, ready for you to relax and unwind, surrounded by nature. Every shepherds hut has been locally crafted, making each one unique in character, design and style. All enjoy the delightful scent of Summerdown produce, with peppermint and lemongrass room fragrance and wash products. All the huts are furnished with the full-size double Emma premium mattresses, 100% cotton bedding and Tardis-like showers. Towels are provided. The living space hosts a Hobbit wood burner for those cosy nights, alongside a mini kitchen area with oak worktops and bespoke cupboards. You won't need to worry about what to cook on (or with!) as all cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils, along with a fridge and small freezer space as well as a two-ring induction hob and toaster are fitted into the kitchen area. You'll find jars of locally-grown peppermint and camomile tea along with treats from some of our favourite British producers. Rambling country walks are available right from your doorstep, with routes to local country pubs. Just a short drive away are several restaurants serving delicious local produce. Locally homemade meals are available to order and can be waiting for you on your arrival.
All essentials, linens and towels are provided.
LIVING ROOM, DINING & KITCHEN:
This cosy hut and its beautiful garden area will provide luxurious comfort and total convenience. The warm living area is ideal for couples, close friends or solo travellers and can accommodate up to two people. The hut has a welcoming kitchenette with everything you could possibly need, including a fridge/freezer, French press, kettle, induction hob and a toaster. The comfortable dining table next to the window allows you to enjoy the beautiful green fields and unspoiled countryside. All consumables in the hut have been locally sourced where possible.
BEDROOM & BATHROOM:
This beautiful and bespoke shepherd’s hut offers all the fun of camping but with the added luxury of sleeping in a proper double bed dressed in quality linen. The bathroom is luxurious and spacious, with a comfortable
shower, sink, and space for toiletries. All toiletries are Summerdown’s own Mint & Lemongrass range, made from the Black Mitcham peppermint grown on the estate.
The outdoor space is an adorable festoon-lit patio area with handcrafted outdoor wooden furniture (made from oak from the estate) and a Webber barbecue with a portion of locally-produced charcoal provided. You’ll find it the perfect setting for al fresco dining, late-night conversation, and relaxation – and a fire pit is
provided for when the night draws in.
