The Starlight Hut is situated in the stunning Cotswold countryside close to Bampton, used as the film set for all the Downton Abbey village scenes. A shepherd hut experience might usually be described as ‘glamping’ but for us, the focus is more on complete luxury - the hut provides all things you could wish for and several that you might not even have imagined. Guests have called it a little idyll in the glorious English countryside and as the name suggests it is lovely for star gazing!
