Things To Do

Within Your Hut

Each Shepherds Hut comes with a luxury double ended bath outside on the veranda so you can lay back, relax and enjoy the stars with your favourite bubbles.

Step out of the bath, pull up a comfy chair and dry off in front of the fire pit. Why not finish the evening with our delicious Twilight Hamper full of tempting delight such as marshmallows, s’mores, pop corn, chocolate sauce and hot chocolate. .

You can toast some marshmallows over the flames, indulge in a mug of delicious hot chocolate and listen to popping corn kernel exploding in the sauce pan.

Stoke up the wood burner before retiring into a comfortable king size bed, smothered with cushions and soft throws.
Listen to your favourite music or snuggle up and watch a film on your own TV.

Wake up and stroll out on the veranda to watch the sun rise over the arable fields, if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the magnificent red deer out grazing in the early morning sunrise or over the adjacent land owned by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.

Wildlife Walks

If you like a stroll in the morning the sunrise is beautiful over Thompson’s Lake which is about a mile from your hut, located just off Pedders Way and is 32 acres in size brimming with beauty and wildlife. You can walk your dog around here too providing they are kept on a lead.

If you are a keen walker there are miles of tracks to discover along Pedders Way where you can walk in the steps of our Roman ancestors.
Here you can enter Thetford Forest and of course the Pingo Trail. If you are a keen mountain biker you can explore 47,000 acres of Norfolk’s finest forests,

Dads Army Museum

If you would like to stretch a little further field there is a Dads Army Museum within the town of Thetford.
Opening times for the museum can vary depending on the time of year, please see their official website to learn more.

Thompson Pub

Last but not least, if you fancy heading down to the pub (The Chequers) for a couple of drinks or an evening meal then there is a beautiful thatched pub hidden in the middle of Thompson village.
The owners will welcome you with traditional local ales and good quality food.
