About this listing
We have 2 beautiful Shepherd's Huts in the gardens of our Old Rectory, 3 miles from Borris. Each hut is decorated in rustic style & contains a comfy double bed. Guests may use our state of the art ecocentre kitchen & bathroom for washing and cooking. Breakfast provided! The huts are close to family-friendly activities and great views. You’ll love the huts because of their closeness to nature and waking up to birdsong and peace.
The huts at Killedmond are very special. We have two huts located about 20 metres apart from each other that are available to let together or separately(see listing for our Blue Mountain Hut ).The huts are traditional shepherd's huts and contain a double bed, some vintage furniture and a lovely view across the meadow. The huts are fitted with lights and heating.The setting is very tranquil and quiet. The huts are located in the grounds of The Old Rectory, a Victorian home. We have converted a barn space into a contemporary shared space complete with wet room, bathroom and toilets as well as an open plan kitchen space with long dining table and magnificent views out into our water garden. Guests staying in the huts may use this barn to wash and cook. It is about 100 metre walk to the barn from the huts along an old beech tree lined avenue which is lit up at night. Breakfast is provided for guests to help themselves to in the barn in the morning (bread, fruit, eggs, butter, bacon, teas and coffee). Help yourselves, and on cool mornings ,sit around the wood burning stove and relax !
Guests will have sole access to their own hut and have access to the shared barn space with bathroom, open plan kitchen space and toilets. Guests will not have access to The Old Rectory which is our family home. Guests are welcome to wander around our vegetable garden, woods and watergarden. Only areas marked private are for family use only.

I am passionate about the great outdoors and spend my time guiding visitors on wild food foraging tours, walks and welcoming guests to our cosy shepherd's huts! We are very relaxed at Killedmond and just want to ensure that you enjoy your stay and have some precious time enjoying this beautiful corner of Ireland. I love meeting new people and speak Spanish!
