I think being in connection with the seasons is hugely important. When it gets dark in the evenings and the mornings are gloomy and grey it can be hard to see the different colours, the natural changes and shifts that happen at this time of year. Last weekend we headed down for a Shepherd’s hut weekend getaway to the New Forest and it was just what I needed.
The Shepherd’s Huts are the perfect size for two and contain everything you could possibly need for your stay; except (and I think importantly) a television. You spend your time tending to the wood burner in the corner, listening to the radio, reading a book and just completely relaxing. At the huts we stayed in in Fritham there is no light pollution and it is so quiet; a real and proper escape.
