This is a bespoke Shepherd's Hut designed for couples and singles, set in a 12 acre ornamental garden with Sea Views & Lakes. Close to beaches, Golf, Fishing, and the attractive seaside village of Portpatrick, with restaurants. The ferry to Belfast & Larne (6 ) at Cairnryan. Stranraer ( 7) miles with all facilities. In the cooler months the log fire heats the hut up very quickly. Wood provided. Drying facilities at house. If you want something different Glenwhan is the place for you.

El lugar

You have a combination of the lovely Shepherd's Hut set in 12 acres of renowned 4 star Ornamental Gardens, with seats and walkways, together with a 17 acre Moorland Walk. The Hut has it's own 'Sitouttery' and is blended into the gardens. If you are a horticulturalist, Golfer, Fisherman or Hill Walker or Star Gazer Galloway Forest is the place. Or just plainly want to get away from it all you have found the right spot.

Disponible para huéspedes

The Gardens are free to guests who are welcome to meander in and sit, with seats and walkways. Wildlife abounds with red squirrels, peacocks and fish in the lochs, together with wild ducks. Birdlife may be observed including yellow hammers on the Moorland Walk . The Garden Tearoom caters for garden visitors and is open 10-5pm daily with breakfast, lunch & teas with home baking and fresh produce, and is endorsed by Visit Scotland's 'Taste your best award'. On arrival first day, Tessa provides breakfast essentials as a Starter Pack, but after that guests should provide their own. AS the space for a fridge is very small, Tessa will accommodate anything in her fridge or freezer, should this be required. Please ask on arrival. The Tearoom is open at 10 and closes at 5pm daily during 1st April or Easter whichever comes first and closes on 30th September.

Tessa was there to meet us and was extremely helpful. The accommodation itself was fantastic, cosy and charming and was situated in a fantastic spot. The gardens were beautiful and there was a bounty of birds. We would highly recommend Tessa's shepherds hut to anyone.

Staying in Tessa's lovely Shepard's Hut was such a treat, an amazing AirBNB find! The Shepard's Hut is incredibly cosy and warm - it manages to be secluded and off grid while still having everything you could need to be comfortable (great shower, comfy bed, storage space, everything you need to do basic cooking and make teas and coffees). The setting for the hut is spectacular - the gardens are incredibly serene and beautiful, a real testament to what can be achieved with vision, effort and time. The end result was a stay that was a true joy and delight, as well as a totally unique experience. I will definitely be coming back and am planning to gift a stay to a couple of special people so they can also soak up the tranquility of this lovely spot. Thanks Tessa!

We had wonderful experience staying in the Shepherd's Hut nestled amongst the stunning grounds of Glenwhan Gardens. We were astounded how beautiful the setting was. When we arrived in the late afternoon, the swifts and martens were swooping over the lake feeding on the insects in the soft evening light. It looked like a fairy tale! Tessa Knott has created the most incredible gardens over the last 40 years. It is world class. So inspirational for gardeners, photographers and artists alike. The Shepherd's Hut has everything you need. It is cosy and very comfortable. The little log burner will keep you warm and toasty with plenty of logs available. The views are gorgeous, over the Gardens and all the way to Luce Bay on a clear morning. Buy some bird food! It is fun to watch a huge variety birds feeding outside the Hut window. Tessa was very helpful, attentive and charming. We thoroughly recommend a stay at this haven. Sarah and John xx

Dear Sarah and John, Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write such a lovely review. I felt very bucked at such wonderful comments about the Garden. It has been a bit of a life's work and it is so nice to get such good feedback. I am very pleased that Glenwhan gives pleasure. Before a blow was struck and it was just wild the place had a spirit of it's own. The Shepherd 'a Hut has been my latest project and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and Bill and much look forward to your return. With very best wishes, Tessa

I absolutely loved staying in Tessa's Shepherds Hut. Although she wasn't there on my arrival her friend Marion was most helpful in making sure I had everything I needed and connecting me to the wifi. Sadly the wifi doesn't reach to the hut but Marion was happy for me to sit in the main house to use it as I needed it. The hut itself is set in beautiful quiet gardens and has everything I needed for some restorative rest after roadtripping and camping for the previous 10 days! Now to convince my parents to let me have one at the end of their garden!

This garden is an outstanding success! To realise a vision on this scale is just extraordinary, and (in gardening terms) achieved in a relatively short time-frame. The grassy pathways open up vista after vista - every carefully-situated element, be it plants, sculptures, bridges or buildings blends seamlessly into the whole. It is an absolute delight to wander here, and a plantsman`s dream. If wet, sensible footwear recommended, especially for the longer-grass paths leading through the moorland area. There is a tearoom with welcoming staff, offering both light bites and proper lunches. The Shepherd`s Hut is a perfect little peaceful hide-away: the small space is very carefully planned to accommodate every necessity. Garden, tearoom, shepherd`s hut all HIGHLY recommended.

Respuesta de Tessa:
Kate I am so delighted that you enjoyed The Garden. It is always good to get feedback, and all I can say is that I have enjoyed creating it over the decades. Now it all has to be kept up! There is a very peaceful ambiance about Glenwhan in the Gaelic meaning 'green and rushy place'! and it was certainly like that when we bought the wild moorland. We very much hope to welcome you back very soon. Tess Tessa
