The Duck Hut is set in a small copse of trees in this quiet secluded corner of Kinton and looks out over open countryside with unspoilt views across the meadows and wandering sheep leading up to the top of Corndon Hill. Just up the hill is the shower shack, where you can still enjoy the scenery from the modern bathroom. Owner Frankie’s house is just visible over the rise, but doesn’t impose on the solitude at all.
The Duck Hut began life as fishing and shooting hut in the 1940s, built by aircraft manufacturers Boulton and Paul as they diversified between the wars. When Frankie found it, it had seen decades of neglect, but had enough stiff structural lip to be dismantled, relocated and carefully restored with many of its original features preserved. The broad deck and veranda have been made with creativity and flair and are perfect for comfortable star glazing.
