If you have ever dreamed of staying in a cosy shepherd's hut, located in one of the most beautiful regions of Britain, then you can stop dreaming right now. Because, we reckon the two shepherds huts at Upland are about as good as it gets if you're looking for somewhere peaceful and authentic to really get away from it all – the ultimate not only in comfort but in sustainability and authenticity too. So what makes them so good? Firstly, you're on a farm stay in the Scottish Borders, surrounded by sheep, chickens and dogs who will visit you from the nearby farmhouse (where, if you're desperate, there's free wifi); and the views are to die for, especially from the more elevated Woodman's Hut in the forest. Moreover, both huts are beautifully made using recycled materials, insulated with sheep's wool for extra warmth in winter and coolness in summer, and are powered by solar panels. They are also beautifully furnished, with comfy beds, Egyptian cotton sheets and thick duvets, plus a welcome tot of whisky, tea, coffee and water as well as other basics; each hut also has a wood-burning stove. If you are after ultimate relaxation, then breakfast and evening meals are available on request, although each hut also comes equipped with an outside barbecue and hob as well as anything else you may need, though bear in mind the huts don't have fridges. If you're bored of B&Bs, give a romantic shepherd's hut a try – it's a glorious escape in a wonderful part of Scotland.
