Welcome to one of our two Shepherd Huts, tucked away in the woods at Ketteringham Hall. The Peacock is a handmade 22ft "Keepers" style hut, made right here in Norfolk by the English Shepherds Hut Co.

Become completely at one with nature in comfort and style with a cosy double bed, wood burning stove, ensuite bathroom and kitchenette.

The Orangery Tearoom overlooking the stunning lake at the Hall is open from Wednesday to Sunday serving delicious snack lunches, homemade cakes and cream teas.

The space
You will experience a luxury break in a warm and cosy Shepherds Hut, complete with a wood burning stove and ensuite bathroom. The hut has Wifi, but provides a welcome break from television by not having one! The kitchenette is stocked with tea, coffee, sugar and breakfast supplies, with fresh milk in the fridge. There is also bedding, towels and essential toiletries provided.


With its wriggly tin roof and cladding, cast iron wheels and cosy double bed. Within your hut, you'll be able to look out into the woods and enjoy a night of complete tranquility, but during the day you are situated in an incredible location with a rich history.

Ketteringham Hall was the headquarters of the 2nd Air Division of the 8th United States Army Air Force during World WarII and the woods were where the airmen's Nissen huts were situated. They are under the command of Jimmy Stewart, the famous Hollywood star and Walter Matthau was also based there.

The main Estate dates back to before William the Conqueror and the Hall was once the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey, England's shortest reigning monarch and younger sister to Henry VIII. Sir John Boileau was responsible for the Hall as it stands today, until it was sold to the Duke of Westminster in 1948. For a few years the Hall became a preparatory boarding school and in 1970 it was bought by Colin Chapman of Lotus Cars as a base for the Lotus Formula One team. The rooms at the Hall are now let as offices and the grounds are available as an ideal wedding venue.
