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 and wood fired pizza oven. 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, 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 warm hut tub or around the fire pit in the comfortable whisky barrel chairs wrapped in cosy blankets (with a dram perhaps!).

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.

This place is a little gem. Lorna has thought about every little thing you could possibly need and the hut is such a clever use of space. The bed is super cosy, the kitchen very well stocked with a gorgeous hamper on arrival and the bathroom sparkling clean. The outside space is amazing - pizza oven, hot tub, fire pit/hot tub - what more could you want?! The hosts are absolutely lovely and welcoming and the goats are just the cherry on top - so so sweet and friendly. We will be back!

Wow - what an amazing little place Poacher's Hut is! It had everything we expected from the listing and more. With a hot tub, fire pit/BBQ, pizza oven, swingball, card games, walks, and adorable animals all around, there are endless things to do. We didn't need to switch on the TV, or even delve into our own games we'd brought, once! Despite the hut's diminutive size we could happily have stayed there for much longer. What stands out most is the hosts' amazing hospitality. The welcome basket of goodies, the beautifully styled space, and innumerable cute little touches (from the daily chalkboard messages, to our initials stamped in the butter!!) went far beyond what we were expecting. I have searched for affordable, naturalistic, secluded accommodation with a hot tub before, and nothing I've ever seen comes close to this. Probably the best-value stay of its kind in the country! We feel very lucky to have stayed here. 🙂

Fantastic two days away; attention to detail second to none. We loved using the hot tub, pizza oven and toasting marshmallows using the fire pit. Welcome pack was a lovely surprise and the home baking was delicious. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend for a break away.

We booked a two night stay with Lorna and everything was absolutely fantastic. The Poachers Hut is beautiful! Lorna is such a wonderful host and the small personal touches like the welcome pack, homemade jam and fresh flowers just made our weekend even more special. Our visit lifted our spirits after a hard few months so thank you thank you so much!

I would highly recommend Poachers Hut to anyone looking for a luxury, cosy break away in a beautiful setting. The hosts include so many added little extras to your stay (I don't want to mention what the extras are as it's much better getting a surprise!) The pizza oven, fire pit and hot tub are fantastic too! You can even make friends with the resident cats, sheep, chickens and pheasant! What more could you ask for?! Brilliant!

The place and surroundings are great , fantastic ancient wood with red Squirrel, Buzzards etc 2 minutes from hut . At first we thought the hut was a bit on small side but you definitely get used to it , it's so comfy with great little touches etc, the bed is super comfortable, the log fire is great , the coffee machine (with Starbucks coffee pods) and electric cooking pan are very handy , also the welcome pack is brilliant with everything you could think of and more including amazing fresh eggs from the hens , the homemade jam was delicious as well . The hosts were great and were very informative with things to do etc , oh just about forgot about the hot tub that is fantastic too.

If you are looking for the ‘perfect’ getaway to spend time with your loved one and have the most peaceful, luxurious and cool stay then forget about any swanky hotels because this is by far superior!! The quirky, comfortable, spotlessly clean and so delicately and lovingly decorated hut, will not disappoint even the hardiest of sceptics, Lorna and her husband were so friendly, can’t fault their hospitality. Honestly if anybody is viewing this property don’t skip past, book book book it... you won’t be (Website hidden by Airbnb) was an array of goodies on our arrival as others have noted, the list is endless, so just look forward to all those extra ‘surprises’ I hope one day we will return!!

Having read the previous glowing reviews, we thought that nowhere could be that good...… How wrong we were! It was truly one of the best places we have ever stayed. Every little thing is so well thought through and everything you could possibly need is there. Having stayed at a lot of 'cabins' throughout Scotland, we had taken a stock of things that places are usually lacking, but ended up not using any of them!! The cupboards are well stocked with all of your staples, and the welcome hamper is jam packed with goodies. The hut itself is beautifully decorated, and feels like a home from home. Although the Scottish weather wasn't overly kind to us, we still managed to use both the amazing pizza oven and chill in the hot tub (in the rain!) We can't wait to return, hopefully when the weather is a little better, to fully enjoy the outdoor space. If you are thinking of booking, just do it. You won't regret it!

A wonderful place to spend a weekend away. Lorna and her husband really put the effort in to make you feel welcome and enjoy your time there and it shows. The place was furnished with personal touches for my girlfriends birthday and we had a wonderful time there. Highlights included cooking our own pizzas in the pizza oven, feeding the hens and cats treats, going on long walks in the surrounding countryside. We had a great time. The most plentiful welcome pack we have ever encountered in a place we are staying.

We had an amazing time here even during stormy weather. This is an ideal escape and their thoughtfulness is outstanding from homemade lemon drizzle cake to their hens eggs in their welcome basket of goodies. We will come again in future !
