Our affordable shepherd’s huts might not have acres of floor space, but they more than make up for it in small-but-perfectly-formed character. The curved, vaulted roofs mean that while they’re cosy, they’re never claustrophobic. For £100 or less per night, you’ll get to stay in a totally unique space, right in the heart of peaceful fields or gorgeous woodland – surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature, but blissfully warm and snug.

When you book a budget-friendly shepherd’s hut with us, you can rest assured that one of our team has been there, stayed overnight, chatted with the hosts (sometimes for hours, our owners are passionate about their places) and explored the local area. No matter what the price is, our standards are high and we want to exceed your expectations. If you’re not sure which space is right for you, Canopy & Stars’ Guest Experience Team gets rave reviews from customers and they’ll help you choose the perfect affordable shepherd’s hut.
For pastoral country charm without the eye watering price tag, shepherd’s huts tick every glamping box. They might be simple shelters but the views from our huts are better than most five-star country house hotels, with a lot more tranquillity to boot.
There are things you’d pay for if you could, but nature offers them up free of charge, as long as you’re there to look for them. To make sure you are, we’ve rounded up part two of our best budget glamping spaces, so you can go in search of some of the best things.
What’s it like to stay in a shepherd’s hut? The humble, versatile shepherd’s hut has become synonymous with glamping in recent years. Cuddled up under the curved roof, you’ll be harking back to a simpler time when farmers would shelter in them overnight while tending to their sheep. The shepherd’s huts in our collection have upped the ante in the style stakes – you’ll still be nestled in a cocoon-like retreat surrounded by nature, but you’ll find a lot more home comforts than in days gone by (including the odd hot tub).
Our range of shepherd’s huts – from affordable to luxury Hut doesn’t really do justice to some of the shepherd’s huts in our collection. While some are small and cosy, we’ve also got some luxurious double-wide spaces that can fit copper baths and huge beds. We’ve even got one shepherd’s hut with a covered kitchen, firepit and hot tub attached. What they all have in common – as well as the iconic corrugated curved roof – is oodles of rustic charm.
Affordability and glamping Our glamping holidays come with complimentary access to the great outdoors and there’s no need to show your boarding pass to enter. When your back garden is acres of woodland, rugged coastal paths or rolling hills, you don’t need to flex the plastic for entertainment. The thrill of being out in the wild is enough. Our generous hosts are prone to throwing in quirky added extras too – you can try your hand at the ukulele at Dawn of the Day in Herefordshire and you’ll find a nomadic horse box sauna at Inshriach in the Highlands.
