On the hunt for a romantic, rural getaway for two? Daisy Meadow is a shepherd’s hut with a difference. For starters, it’s more spacious than the more typical bed-wedged-between-two-walls affair. Sturdy wooden furnishings, pastel hues and quality kitchenware make a stay here practical, while fur throws and a wood-burning stove layer on the comfort. But it’s the heart-shaped bed nook that makes the hut so popular with couples. The hut is surrounded by acres of farmland, ideal for long, rambling walks. Days can also be spent moseying around the grounds of historic properties and tended gardens, including those of designer William Morris at Kelmscott Manor. Pop into quaint villages to stock up on supplies, then take your dinner plans outdoors, making use of the barbecue. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to watch the sun set over the rolling hills beyond.
