Tommy Bit, shepherd’s hut, sleeps 2

Yer la’al yam – your little home.  Named for one of Manesty’s old fields, Tommy Bit is tucked beneath Manesty’s small wooded fellside. He is recently built hut based on the design of old when shepherds would wheel their huts into the fields in the summer to look after their sheep, living at one with nature.

Furnished carefully with a mix of tasteful antiques and vintage items, as well as brand new equipment where needed, you will be talking about your idyllic ‘la’al yam’ long after your stay.
