The new honeymoon trend for British couples is both simple and luxurious, and it takes the form of a shepherd’s hut, just like the five new Hideaway Huts at The Fish Hotel.
Blackdown Shepherd Huts’ most notable new honeymoon suites are at The Fish Hotel near Broadway, where there are five luxury Hideaway Huts within the grounds of this Cotswolds back-to-nature bolthole.
The Fish says: ‘We are so excited by the addition of our five Hideaway Huts and are really pleased to be able to offer guests of The Fish a honeymoon suite with a difference. They have proved incredibly popular and we’re thrilled to be able to have an enhanced luxury offering.’
Will Vickery, who owns Blackdown Shepherd Huts in Ilminster, Somerset, says: ‘The demand for huts to be used as honeymoon huts has really increased recently. Shepherd huts appear to be bang on trend, probably because they’re simple, beautiful and luxurious, and allow private, special and intimate retreats for the newly-weds. We are delighted to have created the five luxurious double huts at The Fish.’
The Hideaway Huts comprise a bedroom with double bed and roll top bath, as well as separate ensuite bathroom with shower. They have a lounge area with large L-shape sofa and wood burner to snuggle up in front of. They have also been kitted out with all mod cons, as well as their own private bath for two on the deck to create the ultimate in honeymoon luxury.
Will says the idea of shepherd huts is catching on in the hospitality, glamping and wedding industry. He says: ‘Brides, grooms, and hotels and venues that host weddings are looking at huts as really unique additions for honeymoons. There is a unique mix of simplicity and opulence with our huts, and we’re all about creating an experience for our customers and their guests.’
Blackdown Shepherd Huts are inspired by the original shepherd huts that once adorned the British countryside.
