Our Shepherd's Hut is perfectly situated for our guests to enjoy a refreshing swim in the River Cree.

Absolutely perfect on a scorching day like today! ☀️

If you haven't tried wild swimming I suggest you give it a go! It's so refreshing for mind, body and soul.

We rent Feoch Meadows Nature Reserve from @scottishwildlifetrust, it's a beautiful and very special place. This afternoon we fixed some fences, and found Globe Flowers and a Cinnabar before enjoying tea and cake beside the River.

A busy morning painting but it's starting to look great.

Ceiling finished and started on the walls too.

Luckily they are all the same colour so no cutting-in required!

OMG I'm missing this little hut so much.

We have been so busy on the farm that I haven't even been down to visit it recently.

Although we are on a planned closure for lambing at the moment it looks unlikely, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, that we will open again until later in the year.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back when it is safe to do so.

We wish you all well during these uncertain times and stay s...

A wonderful little escape - dark skies, quiet, comfortable, where the world has a different pace. If you want to find yourself and be inspired by nature, simplify things for yourself - this is the place to got to. We loved our two-day stay with the bikes and we would love to come back!

An amazing, eco-friendly shepherds hut with lovely woolly neighbours! Spent a night in this wonderful wee hut and will definitely be returning. Sarah goes over and above to ensure her guests are more than comfortable during there stay with every little detail, everything is thought of! We spent the night soaking in the night sky and woke to a beautiful sunset. Creeside is the perfect place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the real world and reconnect with each other and nature! Thank you so much for creating such a blissful hut! Look forward to meeting up again!

We had a wonderful stay despite being unlucky with weather. The Shepherd's hut was snug and the bed very comfy, we enjoyed the little stove and swimming in the river and Sarah was really friendly and helpful.

Have you ever wanted to just escape, and get back to basics of life and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature?  

Get away from it all and stay with us in our traditional shepherd’s hut on our working farm in a quiet corner of South West Scotland.

Our hut has uninterrupted views of the River Cree and the Galloway Hills in the distance. On warmer evenings sit outside, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and as night falls enjoy the splendour of the Dark Skies Park. If it’s wet and windy retreat inside where you will be warm and toasty beside the wood burning stove!

Our shepherd’s hut sleeps 2 in a comfortable double bed. There is an en-suite eco WC, but no shower facility. All bed linen and towels are provided, along with spare blankets for colder days and there is a good range of basic cutlery and crockery.

There is NO Wi-Fi, NO phone signal and NO hot tub but what you do have is books, cards, board games and a radio to keep you entertained. There is a wood burner and a basket of logs. A gas stove with kettle and complimentary tea and coffee. There is a socket if you do need to charge your phone and solar powered lights but NO mains electric.The hut is strictly no smoking and, sorry, no dogs either.

Off road parking is available but there is a short walk to the hut across a field with no hard path so wear sensible shoes (wellies are recommended on wet days!).

We are open 10 months of the year; closed for lambing during March and April. £65 per night based on 2 people sharing.

A continental breakfast is available by prior arrangement (£7.50 per person)
