A luxuriously cosy shepherds hut in the Trossachs

Welcome

Sitting in the far corner of the field at Keepers Cottage, the Poachers Hut is a hand-built 7m Shepherds Hut with its very own hot tub, wood fired pizza oven, large fire pit and BBQ. The shepherds hut has mains water and electricity, en-suite with shower and flushing toilet, planet friendly shampoo and shower gel. It is fully insulated, has a comfortable double bed with quality mattress, bedding and soft furnishings, a small kitchen, a cute wood burner with wood and kindling supplied, comfy seats and small table. There is a smart TV with Netflix, Alexa, WIFI and heating, and the hut has a small fridge, microwave, toaster, electric saute pan, kettle and Nespresso coffee machine.

You will find a generous welcome hamper (enough for breakfast) including fresh eggs from our hens and some home-made produce. The ‘always ready’ hot tub with massage jets is the perfect place to relax.  Wood and charcoal for the fire pit/BBQ is provided along with toasting forks and popcorn pan. You will also find towels and flip flops for the hot tub. There is a selection of coffee, tea (incl decaf), condiments, marshmallows (incl veg), popcorn etc.

 We are in big sky country and with no noise or light pollution, cloud and star gazing is magical here, especially from the hut tub or around the fire pit in the comfortable whisky barrel chairs wrapped in cosy blankets (with a dram perhaps!).   And you can cook delicious pizzas in the wood fired pizza oven. 

The Poachers Hut is a special boutique-hotel style outdoor retreat in the stunning Trossachs, luxury glamping at its best. 

Perfect for mini-moons and a stay makes a wonderful gift. 

We look forward to welcoming you.

Visited here for a wee minimoom after our wedding. The place is absolutely perfect!! The ideal retreat or get away for a couple whatever occasion it may be. Every little personal touch just added to the experience. Absolutely everything has been thought of plus more. Lorna and Ray really have went the extra mile and we 1000% recommend this place. We will be back 😁 Thanks again it was outstanding. 10 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We had such a lovely time staying here. The environment is beautiful and relaxing. The hot tub is absolutely amazing and luxurious. Lorna & Ray (+chickens, cats, goats etc.) are excellent hosts, and they really have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay there, and more! It was hard not to have high expectations for the place, given all the amazing reviews, and even they were exceeded. I think everyone should spend some time here. And 2 nights, as we found out, is not long enough!!

To echo the other reviews, everything has been thought through. We just loved our stay and felt spoilt rotten. Highs - the hamper including home baking, bath robes, fluffy socks, marmalade, fire pit and hot tub. Practical info - I’m 6 foot and the bed was definitely longer than me ( I slept 10 hours!). Enough food for two breakfasts and lots of snacks - both sweet and savoury. We cycled on the first day and it was perfect to unwind in the hot tub and around the fire. The home made brownies fuelled our ride. The goats are lovely wee characters. Lorna is so lovely and chatty. Thanks 🙏

We would recommend this place to anyone! So peaceful and relaxing, so many extras and the hosts really go above and beyond. Everything is done to a high standard with great attention to detail. The perfect relaxing break with everything you need to enjoy the outdoors whilst having all the luxury! Hot tub was brilliant, loved being able to do all of our cooking outdoors. Everything spotless and clean. The food hampers and home baking provided at no extra cost were so thoughtful and went above all of our expectations . Truly wonderful stay!

The hut was amazing, sets an extremely high benchmark for a shepherds hut stay, I doubt there are any that compare. Can only echo all the other reviews and can say that all the positive reviews are more than justified. Lorna & Ray could offer a lot less and the stay would still be excellent, so the fact there's so many extra touches on top the really well equipped accommodation is truly above & beyond! As a taller person (6ft 5) the bed was plenty big enough and could probably sleep someone taller than me comfortably.

The Poacher's Hut really does have everything you could need for a relaxing weekend! The hosts are so welcoming & genuinely want their guests to have the most relaxing time. They are available when you need anything but make every effort not to interrupt your trip, even when they are feeding the animals & cleaning the hot tub. The woodstore with the extra fridge, freezer, appliances & very handy welly boots is a genius idea! The hut is beautifully decorated & very cosy. We had some mixed weather & it was lovely being able to sit outside under the canopy with the outdoor blankets. We loved all the animals & the walk through the Pinetum was beautiful. Thank you for making our anniversary trip feel so special. We hope to be back very soon! C&Ax

We had such a wonderful time at the hut! Lorna and Ray clearly care and are super friendly hosts. Everything from fresh eggs (from their own chickens) to firewood and even chopsticks are provided, and the hot tub is always on - so you can just chill out and have a relaxing countryside stay without worrying about anything. To top it all of, everything has a lovely personal touch! Only warning: be prepared to fall in love with the little lambs and then have to leave!

Wow! What a beautiful place to stay and relax. Lorna and Ray are such friendly, welcoming people and their attention to detail with personalised touches was just so thoughtful. The hut is perfect and they have thought of everything you might need. We could have stayed and never left! You must take Lorna up on her pancake breakfast hamper - delicious!

We booked our stay at the Poachers Hut for a few days of relaxation, after seeing all the great reviews. We LOVED our stay, and felt like it was exactly as portrayed (and as nice as the reviews describe it). The hosts are lovely people who go above and beyond to provide you with all you could need during your stay. The hut itself was clean, cozy, and well-stocked, and the bed was very comfy. We especially loved the outside space, with its hot tub, hammock and fire pit. I especially want to note that Lorna left us a lovely hamper, with wine and home made cake (!), and a stocked fridge. It felt indulgent and truly special. A big thank you to our hosts for the lovely couple days we got to stay at their hut. If you're considering staying at the Poacher's Hut, I'd seriously recommend you to book it.

Thank you so much Lorna and Ray for the most fabulous stay! Thank you for the warmest welcome and so many kind personal touches. It was my husband’s birthday and Lorna had kindly left a card and gift for him which was so thoughtful! We loved everything about our stay - the most generous welcome hamper, the butter with our initials stamped in, relaxing in the hot tub and hammock, toasting marshmallows and making popcorn on the fire pit and baking the best pizzas on the pizza oven! We chose the pancakes with Nutella and bananas and it was so fun to cook them outside! We really loved all the animals too, the Pygmy goats are so cute and it was great fun to be able to feed them. It really was the best stay ever and we cannot wait to return!! Thank you Lorna and Ray for everything!!
