Only areas marked private are for family use only.

The space

The huts at Killedmond are very special. We have two huts located about 20 metres apart from each other that are available to let together or separately(see listing for our Green Mountain Hut) The huts are traditional shepherd’s huts and contain a double bed, some vintage furniture and a lovely view across the meadow.The huts are fitted with lights and heating The setting is very tranquil and quiet. The huts are located in the grounds of The Old Rectory, a Victorian home. We have converted a barn space into a contemporary shared space complete with wet room, bathroom and toilets as well as an open plan kitchen space with long dining table and magnificent views out into our water garden. Guests staying in the huts may use this barn to wash and cook. It is about 100 metre walk to the barn from the huts along an old beech tree lined avenue which is lit up at night. Breakfast is provided for guests to help themselves to in the barn in the morning (bread, fruit, eggs, butter, bacon, teas and coffee). Help yourselves,and on cool mornings sit around the wood burning stove and relax !!


Other things to note

The huts are really comfortable and warm but please remember that this is glamping! There is no toilet in your hut so please be aware of this before booking.
