Here are seven small houses and shepherds huts you can stay at in Suffolk using Airbnb.
1. Meadows Wagon
Where: Rendham, East Suffolk
Price: £80 a night
Meadows Wagon is a beautifully converted hay wagon, now a shepherd's hut, or perhaps even its fancier cousin - the showman's wagon.
Sleeping two, it has a table and wooden seating on one end and a double bed on the other, all hidden behind a traditional romantic curtain. The wagon also has a wood burner, a double hob, and a small kitchen worktop. There is electricity, but no Wi-Fi or running water.
Set on its own in four acres of meadow, Meadow's Wagon is still only a short 350-yard walk to the local village shop and cafe.
