Mama Lou Shepherd's Hut at Southend Barns wedding venue

Mama Lou Shepherd’s Hut

The epitome of first class glamping, Mama Lou is a unique space to enjoy the clean, fresh rural air, disconnect from the world and get back to nature with all the luxuries and personal service you need to make the most of a special occasion.

Set in our alpaca’s grazing field with its own festoon-lit private pathway and garden, our Mama Lou Shepherd’s Hut has been immaculately restored to create a sumptuous and unique retreat. Equipped with everything you could need, you can enjoy a feeling of complete rural escapism as you curl up in front of the fire and listen to the sounds of the countryside. In the fridge you’ll find chilled prosecco, fresh juice and milk for your morning coffee to accompany your breakfast delivery.
