'Jill Hoot'The hut furthest from the day-room

Greenbarns Shepherd Huts provides high quality, self-catering holiday accommodation in authentic, hand-built shepherd huts.  We operate two huts – 'Jill Hoot' (Norfolk slang for barn owl) and 'Hedge Betty' (slang for hedge sparrow).  Each hut sleeps up to two adults and a baby or small child (we recommend up to about six years old).  A cot or folding bed is supplied free of charge as required.

'Hedge Betty'The hut closest to the day-room

Bigger families can book both huts at the same time – meaning we can accommodate a party of up to four adults and two small children.  Both offer access to the day-room and kitchen, as well as to their own separate washroom, WC and shower.  Guests booking the Hedge Betty hut also have exclusive use of our hot-tub at no extra charge.

Daily rental rates per hut are from £100 including VAT.
A 10% discount is available if both huts are booked over the same dates.
