about the property

Romantic shepherd's hut on an island, with a wood fired hot tub.

The Island Retreat is a stylish shepherd's hut with hot tub sat in landscaped private gardens alongside the River Weaver at Dutton Locks in the Cheshire countryside. We love that it is located on a private island that you share with just four other homes. You arrive at the shepherd's hut via a private road and bridge. Perfect for short breaks exploring Chester, Cheshire, Liverpool day-trips or dip into North Wales. 

Dutton Locks is Grade II listed with Historic England, and still in use today. You will be close to the spectacular Dutton Viaduct, Dutton Horse Bridge and Dutton Sluices, all fine examples of 19th-century engineering.  

The shepherd's hut is a fantastic destination for walkers and cyclists as it is situated on the Weaver Way, a 40 mile-long walking route. You can launch canoes and kayaks close to the hut. The area is a fabulous location for bird watching, with many sightings of rare birds including the Black Kite. You're privately located separate from the owner's house, with separate entrance and all private facilities. 

You will have a woodfired hot tub, which makes this shepherd's hut the perfect destination for a romantic retreat for couples. - and your dog can come too!
